Perhaps changing to 02 would be good?

"Developers: if you need more time, take it!"

IIRC about 2 years ago there were some comments in various forums that KDE was more popular than Gnome.
Then the KDE 4 debacle (i.e rushed)
Now the following opinion in OSNews:(comments section)

http://www.osnews.com/comments/21846

  Star  Xubuntu: The Better Ubuntu than Ubuntu 

KDEs problem:

"It just does not get the same attention from big companies. Novell, Red Hat, Intel, Nokia, Canonical etc. all employ a lot of GTK/Gnome hackers.
Qt is well maintained by Nokia, but for KDE they only employ Aaron Seigo. Novell has a few older SUSE KDE hackers on the payroll, but let go a few go lately. Mandrake has very few and Canonical has one.
That is why KDE gets a lot more development in the Summer because of Googles Summer of code.
Same with distros. Kubuntu is much more a community project than Ubuntu. It lacks developers. For Fedora KDE is only a special interest group.
There are only a few distros that do some KDE development (Pradus does a lot of config/glue Python stuff. Others do similar superficial stuff, but no core development.)

That is also why KDE4 lacks a lot of enterprise functionality that was there in KDE3, because volunteers are not so much into that stuff. They like to build flashy new desktop stuff.

I think KDE should embrace these facts and not try to be something it isn't. It is a enthusiast desktop and it should embrace its users and listen to their brainstorm at forums.kde.

It should work on a social desktop and try to integrate better with Debian. A true community distro is KDEs best option right now.

Try getting new versions of KDE into Debian Testing fast would be a great choice for most people.

And it should work on a more social desktop.
I great suggestion in this regard is this:

NB "It is a enthusiast desktop ..."

(pity that Pardus name misspelled)

Should allow the size of the fonts in the main message part to be  easily increased so that a recipient with poor vision can more easily read it.
Kmail used to have this but not in kde3.5.10

Many thanks to you all for your very quick replies.
I have decided to wait for the 2009 version of Pardus.
Thank you all

for some reason I was unable to do what you suggested. I tried, as it is the normal way of working in linux. Shortly after trying my mouse died on me and I  had to pull the plug.
Both the mouse and Klipper worked this time.
There is no xp disk shown on the desk top
thanks to you all

hello PhiX
Thanks for your quick reply
I followed your instructions and then used "print screen"to get a snapshot of the console.
But could not transfer the snapshots to this forum post
I was unable to highlight the snapshots and then use klipper to post them here.
Please tell me how to do this
thanks

this was a new install. I have never used Pardus before
The Tasma control center did not seem to be able to give me any sound on either the BBC videos or on the Sesame street videos (the visual part of the videos worked)



38  Assistance / Installing Pardus / 2 hard drives on: February 26, 2009, 21:34:30 PM
I have installed Pardus2008-2 on the second hard drive. There was nothing on this drive. On the first HD i have (had?) XP.
Everythig went smoothly and I updated all the pardus apps.
BUT I cannot access XP on the first drive.
I went into the bios and put hdd0 as the first selection but it had no effect
I keep XP as a back up for when I mess up my linux os
I hope this is the correct forum for this problem
Thanks

EDIT
no sound

My apologies
I have just seen the post by Lisa in the Configuring Pardus section:

[solved] Package Manager - Authentication Required - super user or root?

Phix points out that:

Just to make things clear, on Linux :
root = administrator = super user
user = simple user. He can be granted some administrative rights by the administrator.

"some administrative rights"

Is there an article that spells out which rights a user has and which a super user has?
Many thanks for all your help
40  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / administrative privileges on: February 05, 2009, 16:43:03 PM
this was posted on slashdot today:
"A new analysis claims that over 90% of the Windows security vulnerabilities reported last year were made worse by users logged in with administrative privileges — an issue Microsoft has been hotly debating recently. According to BeyondTrust Corp., the result of the analysis of the 154 critical Microsoft vulnerabilities indicated that a full 92% could have been prevented if users were not logged into their systems with administrator status. BTC believes that restricting the number of users who can log in with these privileges will 'close the window of opportunity' for attackers. This is particularly true for users of Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office."

thanks for the very quick reply.
In
 Reply #3
I asked:
Perhaps if you told me which password should be (was) used in the wiki" Network card authentication" screenshot it would help
Was it the one that was created in the"juser" screenshot wiki (first user)
or
was it the one created in the "Administrator password" screenshot?

you replied ( Reply #4 )
the one that was created in the"juser" screenshot wiki

I took this to mean that I should NOT use the one created in the "administrator password screen"

The wiki text instruction says:
Enter at [1] the password of the user shown after User

But, within the authentication window itself it asks for the super user password which would seem to be the one that was created in the "administrator password screen"
Your comment that you will change the text must refer to the following sentence:
Enter at [1] the password of the user shown after User.
What will you change it to?
Many thanks for helping me

atolboo
very many thanks for your detailed explanations.
It seems that part of my confusion was caused by my failure to realize that "administrator" is not the same as "super user"
If all users are to have the "administrator" box checked then "user" and "administrator" become synonymous.
As "MitraMai" observed:
: I can't answer what determines which level of privilege is required though. To me it seems fairly random sometimes."

If you change the wording in the "Network card authentication"from
"authentication as the super user is required to perform this action"
to
"authentication as administrator (or "user") is required to perform this action" i will be less confused!
thank you very much for your time and effort.

Thank you "atolboo" for your detailed explanation
I am easily confused and hope that you will have the time to provide some more details.
You say
"Not only for the first user but for all users."
and you say
"You can get these privileges with the root password or ( when "give administrator privileges to this user" check-box has been marked) with your user password."
But  "all users should check the administrator box"
 
Perhaps it is the word OR that is confusing me.
Or the use of the term "super user" used in the screen shot of the "Network card authentication" in the wiki
Perhaps if you told me which password should be (was) used in the wiki" Network card authentication" screenshot it would help
Was it the one that was created in the"juser" screenshot wiki (first user)
or
was it the one created in the "Administrator password" screenshot?
Can "super user" be anyone and thereby any person's "user" password becomes a "super user" password; so that we have many "super user" passwords.

 EDIT:   the instructions to the "Network card authentication" screenshot say
"Enter at [1] your user password"

As you can see I am easily confused
In my ignorance this would seem to make it easier for any cracker to guess the "root" access
Many thanks for your time and trouble



44  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Administrator password.pardus wiki. installation on: February 03, 2009, 21:40:58 PM
At the beginning it advises that the first user listed should have the box checked for
"give administrator privileges to this user". It requires you to create a password (user?)
2 screens later it requires that a "root"password be created,in the "Administrator password" screen

BUT close to the end of the installation wiki at the
"Network card authentication" screen it says for juser to use his user password
"Enter at [1] your user password."
Surely the root password should be entered here?
or
to put it another way
What is the root password used for?
Sorry if there is something very obvious that I am failing to see
thanks
