Hi,

I didn't know it was a third-party software from HP.  Maybe someday it will be put in the package manager repos. 

Here's another link.  It reads confusing.

Nice work on the disc label!

I'm a big fan of Opera as well and have been since 1997, I think that is when we first started to use it.  We first went on-line in '96 and immediately installed Netscape.  My husband had used IE at work, and said no way that we were going to use it on our home computer.  To this day, I've never used IE.  There was a few years when I found Opera to not be so good, about 3 years ago or so.  That is when I switched to Linux and started using Konqueror, as well as giving FF a try.  I then switched to SeaMonkey, for I always liked the easy html editor, Composer, that was originally in Netscape.  In the past three months I installed the latest 9.51 from their website and was very impressed.  Now I use Opera 9.52 and switch between it and Konqueror. 

I like the feature "copy and go to web address, as many urls are not hot links.  This way I skip a few steps (copy, go up to address bar, click, delete, paste, enter).  I also like 'resume' in their download manager.  The layout looks nice with the steel gray top.  Easy on the eyes.  I also like the once 'quick preferences' and 'delete private data'.  With Seamonkey, it takes three steps or more to clear cache, cookies, and history.  Konqueror was the first to have go>most often visited, a feature I think is now in FF.  Using dial-up I do notice each browser renders pages differently, so for some it may seem slow as to what they are used to seeing displayed in a certain order i.e. graphics first, then text, adverts first, then graphics, then text., etc.  I guess there are ways to manipulate these functions in all browsers.   There's a browser out there for all our needs.  Still, it would be intersting to see someone work on a new browser that didn't rely on gecko engine as all of the mozilla variants do.  I'm not a fan of plug-ins.

edited to add I stand correct.  Opera only has retransfer, which starts download from beginning if download is  interrupted.  Opera used to have resume.

Hi,

Maybe I am wrong, but I use kdesu kate (file name here) to open up files as administrator in kate.

Thank you for the tender welcome, waf and azra! 

Hi PhiX, and Good point.  I was steered towards Linux Mint a few months ago when someone that posted and helped me with a problem at the ubuntu forum sent me a private message asking me how I was doing, and asking me why I was still struggling with kubuntu and to give kde Mint a try.  I was glad he did, otherwise, I'd still be struggling.  Same thing happened with Linux Mepis, a couple years ago when I first delved into the world of Linux.   Word of mouth because someone actually has some personal experience with it.

Regards,
Lisa Marie

Thank you, Michiel!  I was confused by all of the files that have the check code features as I've never seen them before.  I panicked!  Thanks for clearing things up for me. 
Good news, my husband said to send him the link and he can start the download before he leaves for work, then burn it when he comes in.  So, this will cut out much time consumption.  I will have to wait for him to send it in the post, as his work takes him far away much of the time.

Regards,
Lisa Marie

P.S. Michiel, Oh and thank you for the welcome.  Thanks for posting the release notes!
788  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / [solved] First time to download a distro, which kde file do I choose? on: September 17, 2008, 22:40:15 PM
Hi all,

This will be my first time to download a Linux distro.  I have dial-up (yes, some of us still rely on this ancient tool  Wink  ) .  I usually send the mirror web page to my husband, and he downloads it for me as he has DSL at work.  He is not able to do this anytime soon for the next couple of weeks, and so I thought I would give it a try on my imac machine, using igetter download manager.  This way I can stop the download if I need to and resume it later.  I've downloaded movies off of the usenet before, and that can take upwards of three days, so the slow time in getting it won't bother me a bit.  If I could, I would buy it, but pardus 2008.1 isn't available anywhere that I have looked.  I would like to use the live cd.  I just want to make sure, do I download the hyeana.iso?  and not the mid5sum, correct? 

Regards,
Lisa Marie

Greeting,

I wouldn't worry about those numbers in DistroWatch, either.  I just happen to hear about pardus from the Linux Mint newsletter and their release of KDE version.  Someone said to have a serious look at pardus, and since I'm a big fan of KDE, I was tempted. Grin  I have never heard about this distro and it looks like something I would be happy to use.  It has some innovations, and I like to see people try creating new and workable ideas.

Word of mouth is powerful!
