Khwabon Ke Parindey this breezy and relaxing song is from the Indian movie  Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.  Watch the movie as there is some wonderful poetry quoted in the movie - poetry by Javed Akhtar, also  some beautiful scenery of Spain.

And a Happy New Year to each of you.  Somewhat late, but still heartfelt.   Cheesy

I was looking at another way to do this, as it is the GUI method, and should work:
In Panel / Kicker right click on the arrow 'Show Hidden Icons' that is normally to left of the Digital Clock
System Tray Settings
you can choose "Hidden' , 'Always Visible" or "Auto".

Here's a tip I just tried after trying KDE 4.8.3 in Mint Maya KDE.  The printer-applet would appear in kicker even though I don't have a printer connected to computer.  Maybe this is a bug that is fixed in doing one of the 521 updates, but I did the following:

In Dolphin file manager of your user (home) go to>View>show hidden files, and select .config and then select autostart folder and once you are in it,
Right click mouse>Create new> text file and name it:
open it with a text editor and add following entry:
[Desktop Entry]
save and reboot computer. 
I found this help here:

Looks like the flash error was due to being on dial up,  and not outdated flash player, but did atolboo's updates (much appreciated, atolboo!).  Here's a piece of a song I have always enjoyed.  Don't know why the site doesn't play all of it. 
I've enjoyed mariachi music for a long time.  Growing up in southern California, and tagging along with my Dad who always got up very early on the weekends to go to the local swap meet located at the drive-in theatre, otherwise known as a 'flea market' or 'boot sale'.  One would always hear mariachi music playing at the stalls that sold music cassettes or 8-tracks and big boom-box players.

Sounds interesting.  X has need for some improvements so an alternative is a good thing.

Dewey Square by Joe Cohn from album Fuego.  Last night I heard this jazz song on the NPR station that airs Jazz with Joe Parlocha . The pianist sounds like a twittering bird with amazingly smooth key transition.  I tried to listen to it via my computer, but says my flash is too old.  Maybe you folks can, if you care to.

Well, I have computer speakers that are 2.1 and from reading, alsa doesn't configure these well as the subwoofer is tied to the two satellite speakers and you don't get surround but stereo.  I'm still not hearing anything from my subwoofer.  I have been reading, though, and there's this little command line program called

I have the problem like some laptop users have mentioned, where alsamixer gets reset upon reboot or start of computer.  It always sets it back to the halfway level.

So,  you open 'alsamixer -c 0' in command line, or hit F6 to select your soundcard for 'alsamixer', again, with command line. 
Pull up those sliders to where you want them.  Esc.
Then in konsole enter:
sudo alsactl store
and the sound is at levels I set after reboot.  Okay, back to anka kernel work.  Hurray!  I'm being patient as just from looking at pantera's hat, I figure he has another job.  Grin
Speaking of job, time to mow the lawn.

And if I had paid attention to alsamixer menu, one can easily select their sound card by hitting F6.  Grin

Not meaning to usurp the 'replacement for Pardus threads'  Wink  but I have been working on the sound for my desktop computer, and didn't realize until this week that my woofer is not putting out any sound, only the two speakers on top of the desk. 

And, learned a trick that I found myself by typing in konsole:
alsamixer --help

and also saw something similar at the Fedora forum.

When I start alsamixer via the konsole, it shows PulseAudio as the card and would only show the Master, and not PCM, s/pdif, etc.   It should show card as CMI8788.  According to Fedora folks,  pulseaudio is the default for alsamixer. 
Doing the following command showed the correct output. 

alsamixer -c 0

which showed all outputs at halfway mark.  Still haven't figured out why my woofer isn't putting out sound, but at least I learned something new. 
To find out the card number, I guessed at it, but you can also see which you have by typing in konsole command:

aplay -l

Now, back to 'a replacement for Pardus'.  Tongue
11  General / Tips and tricks / Re: Replacement for Pardus: PCLinuxOS on: September 28, 2012, 19:53:50 PM
I guess that is just what Pardus is for me, a show stopper.  I have Poca Mandriva Russian version installed, but I rarely log into it.  My first experience with Mandriva based OS and nothing against Poca, (their forum is quick to help you with a problem) but more a critique of Mandriva:   When you compare 'pisi history' verses 'rpm -qa --last | less', output if package upgrading/updating history,  pisi history is easier to read and shows previous version replaced by new version.  More informative.

anglo, I'm surprised you haven't tried Snowflake.  It is Debian-based, maybe that is why, but it implements the I17 desktop. 

I've eyed an os called AV Linux for folks that do a lot of audio and video work.  Still using Pardus, Pardus original on one partiton and Pardus Anka on another.

Old post but not an old subject as lately I have been trying to make the default fonts in Pardus 2011.2 look sharper.  I still do not know why the fonts are so crystal clear in Pardus with KDE 3.5.10 version as they are in Kurumsal and Pardus 2008 and not so in 2011.  Anyway I did try some of the suggestions posted by Freebird and didn't see much of a difference.  Instead, I changed the font.  I think the default is sans serif.  I now have Clockopia for toolbar and downloaded Zekton and use it for the taskbar.  Clockopia and Zekton look a bit similar.  I like them.  My eyes are getting worse the older I get, but changing the font is making a big difference for me.

That is great news, Yoyo as you are a great asset to Pardus!  And, glad to hear you have a helper.  The best to PardusLife!

14  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Can anyone please help create a Gagauz keyboard layout? on: August 28, 2012, 21:36:57 PM
I'm still playing with keyboardlayouteditor, but can't proceed as 'start character map' doesn't do anything.  It will need the gnome gucharmap.  

Yes, I was looking at /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/tr as it has many sections and Gagauz could be added to it.  A good idea.

Much later...I didn't need gucharmap.  Instead I opened up kcharselect in konsole and drag/dropped characters shown in the zip file you shared.  Too complicated for me to edit the tr symbol file so instead I made it singular and instead of ga (Gambia country) I called it gz.  One thing nice about Gnome desktop is the ability to preview keyboard layouts.  I can't do that in KDE.  Experimenting as I have placed the gz file in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols.

Looks like this is lacking in kbd.  One can add a font from the internet (untar, then point to folder) in font management but there is no way to add a keyboard layout except what is already available under layouts.

I found this tar and may be it would make a nice pisi package as it doesn't require too many dependencies.

keyboardlayouteditor.  I just tried it, but first had to open pisi package manager and install antlr, python-lxml, and python-pyparsing to get it to work. 
I cd into unpacked folder, then cd src and :
I don't know how to use it. Will give it a try later.
