766  General / Introduce yourself / I finally made it to the good ship Pardus, from Arkansas, US on: September 22, 2008, 19:16:32 PM
Hi all,

I guess I wear out my welcome as I've been chatting with many of you here on other threads, but just to say that I am very pleased with my morning's install of Pardus 2008.1 for kde install disk.  The only thing that made me freak out was the language at boot was in Turkish, but I quickly saw the F2 button to change to English. All went very smoothly after that, in fact, I've never enjoyed an install more.  I very much like the orange colour layout, and I used the help menu for some of the things I wasn't sure about, which came in handy.  If it wasn't for the Hummingbirds wanting their feeder refilled, I would have stayed put in my seat during the entire install process, as I liked the icons that showed during the install with the different programs, and the brief description of the programs.  It helped me to know where to navigate once the install was finished and I rebooted system.  It all went fine. 

The help wizard at initial log in was helpful, but I still see that Network Manager needs to work on their settings for those of us with dial-up modems.  It still will not connect after I filled in the correct fields.  There was no "connect" button.  This is a Network Manager problem though, as you will see bug reports about this for us few that use dial up.  It didn't matter as I used KPPP, which I am very familair with.  I'm using FF now and all is well. 

Very nice board layout.  I like the default blue colour and the icon shapes.  The clock is easy to read, as are the kicker icons.  With windows, the default setting for my 1280X1024 display is tiny. 

Nice fonts, sound was recognized with my new audio card.  I will give it more of a work out as I go along.

Just to say Thank you to the fine folks who created and who maintain this operating system and the help wikis and fourms! 

Warm regards,
Lisa Marie

edited to add: I also appreciated the ability to check the disk integrity upon pre-install.  Great install feature!

Hi Lashni,

And welcome!  I hope you get that python error you mentioned in other thread worked out.

Hello Tim,

Good to have you here!  I too use Mint, and use Elyssa gnome with many KDE applications added.

Thanks, atolboo.  Yes, and I find some with this spelling in Michigan still, but no go with sharphorn.  Thanks again!

Download was about 35 hours in total time, and it stalled out at the last 98.70%, so I paused the download, went back to bed, got up in the morning and restarted it.  It downloaded the remaining last bit and burned it with os x disk utility at 8x (slowest speed available for disk utility).

P.S. waf, I enjoy Jazz very much, though I do not know artist names, but am only familiar with songs and know what I like.  There is a type of jazz that is mellow and relaxing - I call it California jazz.  I like this type and also some of the more syncopated tunes, but lean more towards the Cal. jazz style.  Dv. Brubeck is one of my favourite artists.

More clues, as you can play as guest but not when you log in.  Hmm?

Don't have any other thing to suggest but what's already been suggested.  Maybe something got corrupted somewhere.  I don't like to tell you to reinstall, but sometimes reinstalling java or the browser gets rid of possible corrupted files.  Sometimes not.

Also, if you have another browser installed and with it you are able to play after logging in, then there's definitely something wrong with FF.  Is it FF 3.0 or 3.1? 

Lisa Marie

edited to add, that it could be a java certificate issue.  If you have Java Control Panel you can look for it there or check with pogo site information.  May be you need to be reissued a new one, just a guess.  Another thing to try - clear the browser cache and cookies and try again.

Jap, (Yep) waf, and I laughed.  What if I don't like Pardus? Shocked 
I've read too many good, surprisingly good things about Pardus, that I don't think I will be let down.   If I have any problems, you folks will be the first to hear from me.   Wink 

Michiel, Good to hear you say you are from the Netherlands.  I remember years ago that to be politically correct, one should say "I am a Hollander", or, " I come from Holland ".  I am envious that so many people in Europe can speak many languages.  Schooling is much better in Europe and the British Isles than in USA, in my opinion. 
My dad's mother was born in Michigan and was Dutch.  Her name was Dean Sharphorn, but I'm sure Sharphorn was respelled when her parents came to the US.  She didn't like 'Dean' and changed it to 'Donna'.  I only know a few words in Hungarian thanks to my mother.  My grandmother moved to Ohio area when she was 9 years old (from Budapest).  Her husband was a coal miner. 

Enough for my history.  I intend to introduce myself in the correct thread when I finally install Pardus.  Cheesy

(BTW is your native language German?)

If only it was!  No, but I have learned a few words.  I visit a Deutsch tobacco pipe forum now and then and have to use Leo dictionary or babblefish to translate.   It makes us Americans look stupid that we only know one language. Sad but true, as schools don't require one to learn a second language.  Not when I went to school, anyway and I grew up in southern California where there were many Mexican/Americans.  I never learned Spanish!

Thank you, Michiel, for the kind offer.  I will see how download goes first.
Liebe Grüße

Hi Michiel,

You can call me silly, but I don't have Pardus installed yet.  I like this forum.  Plus, I am stay-at-home hausfrau so I sometimes have plenty of time to spare with help and searching for answers. 

My husband said he couldn't download it for work-related reasons, so, I am doing it myself, the slow way, through dial-up.  I have 12 hours to go.  If this doesn't work, I can always buy Pardus 2007 version as I see it is at some of the distro disc websites for sell.  I am downloading the install cd 2008.1 version.  I tried to use iGetter download manager for os x, but it crashed my computer.  I am now using Speed Download and it is doing its job.  I will be sure to burn the .iso at the very slowest speed as is recommended.

as the ketchup commercial goes..." anticipation "  Grin

Hi rosinskitg,

the " applet not init " hints to java problem.

You mentioned Pogo, and I remember reading about someone else having problems with it, too.  Pogo requires the latest java.

Don't know if it will help, but look over this to find out which version you are running and getting the latest version to run...if it is a java problem.  I'm in the dark, though, as I'm not using Pardus yet.  This is for ubuntu

Hey PhiX, that's a nice feature that I did not know about.  Still waiting on my Pardus download - I am doing it myself and have remaining 15 hours.   Grin  I can't wait!

Pardus.ca, you could also look in your home folder at your ~/.xsession.error file to see if it gives informations with konqueror.

A known problem with certain pages showing up odd is that one has
settings>configure konqueror>browser identification
set to something other than default Mozilla.  I know having it set it IE can cause odd page rendering at some sites.

hmm, if you are using KDE version 4, Konqueror has known rendering bugs at certain sites that previously worked fine.

In upper right hand corner, click on the maximize window icon. 

Go to Settings>Save View Profile> and tick 'save window size in profile'.  Save. 

There are probably many other ways, which is why I like KDE so much!  To make the browser size smaller to your liking while it is currently open, move cursor to corner of the browser page until the cursor shows a right angle mark, and then you can move the page size to whatever you like, which I sometimes do if I want to shrink it down and look at something else that is "behind" the browser page.

Hello Heiko,

I don't have clamav installed, but I searched and found this and hope it helps.  Scroll down to sections about automatic updates.  You will need clamav-freshclam installed (from repos) and then a simple editing of a .conf file.

One last how-to and then I'll leave you alone so you don't mess up your computer.   Wink

So kde-label doesn't burn an image to a disc, but it does make stick-on label for a disc?   I don't know, but like I said, I don't even have such an optical drive that has this image printing capability.

 I can see, you need to install in certain order, or else it won't work correctly. 

The alternative to run gui as root -  gksudo (gnome) or  kdesu (kde).

Hi Michiel,

It helps me, though I don't use such software, but I never knew there was a KDE version.  Looks much simpler to install , and I do emphasize the word - install.  Wink  Thanks for that information.

Lisa Marie

Sorry about that Paul, but at least there's an alternative!  It may not share the same features, but give it a try to see how it works.
