You have been very patient with me atolboo; thank you.
I feel that my brain is not wired in the same way as kde aficionados,
E.G. the fonts
I saw "install fonts" under "system settings" but this had nothing to do with their size.
It was not until you very kindly showed me a screenshot that I realized that I had to look under "application appearances "
Also your instruction to look under "locale" for time change was not "obvious" for me; even after I had opened that icon.
I set up the 24 hour system as HHMM; but could not apply as the
 "apply" was greyed out.
I have never needed "seconds" so did not consider using them.
Attempting to "apply" I clicked on every button (except seconds) that I could see. There are a lot of buttons at that location!
Very frustrating

I saw the green arrow on the apply button after I added seconds to the button (HH:MM:SS) and then restarted the comp. but no change (still am/pm notation)

"...It all starts with "Unlock Widgets".
If you know of a post/tutorial that explains this process please let me know.
Thank you again for your patience.

Thanks for all your help atolboo
After my previous post I remembered that :

when all else fails read the directions

So I googled for kde manual, kde tutorial, kde help.
I could not find anything re kde 4.6.
The manual was for 3.
The tutorials seemed mainly for developers
The book stores have only Ubuntu books (or Redhat).

I conclude that kde is not yet ready for newbies; who often  require tutorials.
Hopefully some years in the future there will be up to date tutorials,
Thanks to all Pardus posters who offered help

Many thanks
I have a 24 inch monitor (native resolution 1920x1200). I was using 1680x1050 to get bigger text.
I was unable to see those little arrows you point out in your screenshot  until I switched to 1920 resolution. I then slid the system tray and digital clock to the left and then reverted to 1680. The clock (half) disappeared to the right and I had to change to 1920 to get back to the arrows.
Iam now unble to get both the clock and the system tray back.
I do not see, from your screenshot how you change 12/24 hours.

Just to add to my joy I found that I could not create  a screenshot by drawing with the mouse  a rectangle around an area of the screen that I wished to copy.(which ubuntu does)
Every step I take seems to create more questions
If you could briefly tell me how to get my digital clock back and perhaps how to do a limited area screenshot I *promise* not to post any more questions for a week

Many thanks

Well I now have the K button on the bottom right corner, but I did get my digital clock back; but no 24hour
If you could tell me how to move the K button back to the bottom left cornerCANCEL THIS I MANAGED TO SLIDE IT BACK.
now i need my virtual desktops
If I am really lucky I will be able to solve all my problems before you get to show me(RIGHT!)

my apologies
It is just that the dutch sentence is longer.
I will try again.

I tried
Option #1 on your screenshot does not seem to be the same on this reply. The first box (the one you marked) says:

notify me of replies

sorry

re: clock
There is a picture of an analog clock and under it the time in 24hours but no way to change from am/pm to the 24 hour system
All the above refers to when I have right clicked get the window to open on the time section of the system tray

I took a screenshot, but how do I enter (attach, send) the screenshot?
10  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: cd ICON.Pardus 2011.1. 64 bit on: September 08, 2011, 17:03:05 PM
Many thanks atolboo
But how do I modify the small window that appears?
It just show 4 entries:
download ph...
download ph...
copy with k3b
open with fil,,,
And although it states at the top of the window "optical disk" the symbol in the tray is for a usb (no usb is connected)

I would also like to stretch out the clock info as the day (thu) now overlaps the "am"And I would like to increase the size of the virtual desktop squares .Have  each one (of 4) the full depth of the bar. But these last are minor compared with making the notifier more understandable.
Thanks for your help
ps your screenshots are nothing like mine!

When I load a data CD, where is it supposed to show up on the screen (or desktop?)
If I go to file manager it sometimes shows up but also seems to disappear very quickly.
To eject it I went to "run command" and typed "eject" which worked.
I thought that the icon was supposed to show up if one right clicked on the desk top;and  it would give a choice of umount and eject but this does not seem to happen
Hopefully someone can point me to a tutorial to either set this up or give simple instructions.
Thanks

FIXED
TODAY THE SLIDER ON THE SYSTEM TRAY CONTROLS THE LEVEL OF THE SOUND

I have no idea what I did, or did not do to achieve this

many thanks
I was looking under "font installer"
I did not realize that "fonts" were also under Application appearance
Thanks for the screenshot; I recognized the "emoticon" icon and went looking for it
Thanks
14  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / pardus 2011.1 (64 bit) font size on: September 04, 2011, 17:55:14 PM
The information given in "settings" . "fonts",does not make sense to me.
Is there somewhere I can get instructions on how to increase the size of the fonts?
Thanks

re:reply #6
I have just installed Pardus2011.1 and the volume control slider has no effect.
There is sound, which can be modified by the knob on the speaker set.
I recently tried Kubuntu 11.04 and had the same problem
If this is a KDE feature there is not much hope (they have had some years to fix sound)
However, hope springs eternal, os if anyone knows how to fix this please post.
Thanks
