1  Assistance / Hardware / Re: [SOLVED]Changed keyboard layout, now the keyboard doesn't work anymore -- at all on: December 27, 2011, 06:37:14 AM
The problem was that the keyboard was dead once I got to the GUI log on screen. Because nothing worked I could not enter the password or escape from the GUI by using the keyboard (CTRL+ALT+F1, F2, F3, etc. didn't work either). However, in the lower left left corner you have options to choose a session type -- with the mouse. There I chose "command line". Once I selected that option, the GUI was terminated and I got to a terminal, where I was able to log on because here the keyboard did work. Once logged on to the terminal as root I typed "startx" to get to the desktop (because I was already logged on, I didn't have to re-enter the password). At the desktop once again the keyboard was dead. But with the mouse I was able to enter the settings menu and make the changes you proposed.

With your help I managed to fix it and here's how (short version  Wink).

When I got at the log on screen, using the mouse I selected command line for session type. I then logged in as root. Once I was in, I type "startx" to get a desktop. Then I followed owiknowi's hint to change the keyboard type and layout to the correct ones. I checked "Save settings system wide" and applied. It appears this last step was required in order to get the keyboard to work again.

Thanks y'all!

Hi folks,

I screwed up my Pardus 2011 and I need some help in unscrewing it Smiley.  I wanted to type a special character and I realized my keyboard wasn't set for handling international characters (for example, an "e" with two dots on top). So I changed to keyboard layout to PC 105 Intl. After I rebooted I can no longer type anything. In fact, I can't even log on because the keyboard is completely dead -- even the num-lock, caps-lock etc. keys don't work anymore. (Obviously the keyboard itself is OK, as I am typing this using the same keyboard.)

Which files do I have to change in order to undo the damage? I am still able to access the install partition.

Second, what do I have to do to be able to type an international character?

4  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / DNS in 2011 on: April 02, 2011, 13:40:19 PM

I' ve been using pardus since release 2007. In these older, KDE3, versions, one could easily set the DNS servers via the network applet. You could choose from "automatic" and "manual". In automatic mode the DNS servers were set to some servers in Turkey (I guess, the Pardus DNS servers).

How can I change the DNS server settings in Pardus 2011? There appears to be no such option in the network applet.

Hi all,

At times I like to play a card game on my computer. So I installed kde card games. But obviously I don't know the rules for each game, so I press F1 for help. KDE Help Center pops up, but there is no content for KPatience. As a matter of fact, there is no content for any application. For some apps a page appears saying, "Documentation not Found", but for the card games there is not even this -- just a blank page.

Now of course I can always look up the rules on the net, but I'd rather have off line documentation.

Anyone know how to fix this?

8  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: Upgrade to 2008.2 still shows as 2008.1 in grub on: February 25, 2009, 18:43:04 PM
Thank you. I now that I am indeed on 2008.2. For the orange splash screen still saying 2008.1 I have filed a bug report.

Has anyone done a fresh install of 2008.2? What does the orange screen say?
9  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Upgrade to 2008.2 still shows as 2008.1 in grub on: February 25, 2009, 09:57:49 AM
I've been a Pardus user from 2007.0 as it was the only Linux distro I could possibly install and run on my laptop (an HP dv6361eu). (On a side note, I was able to install and run other Linuxes after I had completely wiped the disk, i.e. starting from sector 0. Must have been how HP setup the disk. However, by then Pardus had already won me over Smiley). Anyhow, when 2007.1 was released, I updated the 2007.0 via the Package Manager and sure enough in Grub an entry appeared Pardus 2007.1 and also the splash screen showed 2007.1. Later with Pardus 2007.2 the same thing happened. When 2008 was released, for various reasons I did a fresh reinstall. I think, but I am not 100% sure anymore that when 2008.1 was released and I upgraded via the Package Manager both Grub and the splash screen were updated. Then I upgraded my harddrive and once again had to a fresh reinstall (using a 2008.1 install CD).

So about 4 weeks ago 2008.2 was released and from what I read here on the forum, 2008.1 can be upgraded to 2008.2 via the Package Manager. But this time the splash screen and Grub continue to say 2008.1. What does this imply? Was the splash screen simply not updated or is the Package Manager doing something wrong? All updates since January 30th 2009 (the release date of 2008.2) have been processed and applied without error.

Here's my "uname -r" output
Linux music-pardus #1 SMP Mon Jan 19 15:02:57 EET 2009 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.80GHz GNU/Linux

(Please note that I posted this from my desktop computer, hence the CPU-type does not match that of a dv6361eu -- but on this one, too, it still reads 2008.1 both in Grub and on the splash screen.)
10  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Sound delay on: December 30, 2008, 19:49:25 PM
Hi all,

I have three computers running Pardus 2008.1 and all of them seem to "suffer" from a strange sound delay. As you know, certain dialogs (usually warnings and errors) go accompanied by a sound -- i.e., the dialog comes up and a sound is played.

However, on all of my PCs when the dialog comes up, it takes about 1/2 second (I guess) before the sound is played. And believe me or not, it annoys the hell out of me.  Wink I am pretty certain that in Pardus 2007.x the sound played immediately when the dialog popped up. I'm guessing it must be some KDE setting, but I just can't seem to find it...

11  Assistance / Software / [Solution:] Pisibul on: December 30, 2008, 19:20:47 PM
Hi there,

I read in an old thread that Pisibul doesn't work in Pardus 2008. Correct for the pre-packaged Pisibul version you can download from the website. But if you build from source it will again work like a charm. I have added a new page to the Wiki detailing the steps. Find it in the HowTo's section under Package Management or go directly here: http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Pisibul

12  Assistance / Hardware / Re: [SOLUTION] Getting the ASUS WL-138g Wifi card to work... with WPA! on: November 09, 2008, 11:10:45 AM
I thought you were french because you used a link to a french website in your wiki page. Nevermind.

Well, actually I found the page I linked to in this article after a whole hell of a lot of searching on how to get my WL-138g wireless card to work. As far as I know this link is the *only* one on the Net.

If anyone can tell me if and how I can attach the cab-file to the Wiki-article, please let me know and I'll update the article...

Hi and welcome Aero9000,

Are you french ?
Note that besides this international forum, we have a french website : http://www.pardus-fr.org

Nice to be here.

Actually I am Dutch.

And I'm sorry to say I don't speak a syllable of French...  Smiley

14  Assistance / Hardware / [SOLUTION] Getting the ASUS WL-138g Wifi card to work... with WPA! on: November 07, 2008, 12:24:54 PM
Hi folks,

I'm posting this message in the hopes that is will help some other poor schmuck like myself to get this this b*tch of a card going (with WPA as a bonus).

I have actually created a page for this in the Pardus Wiki in the hardware section: http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Hardware:Contents

Do note by the way that Pardus was the only Linux distro that I could find that can actually make this thing work reliably....

Thumbs up for Pardus!
