1  General / Wish list / Re: Deluge torrent client on: December 29, 2007, 11:45:52 AM
Urmmm my understanding was that Deluge had setup an ad-supported proxy server with a whitelist... it's got nada to do with TOR. You can use the browser in their torrent client to go to whitelisted torrent sites and download torrent files only.

You can Torify a few bittorrent clients already... there's just very little point. Tor is far too slow to support even the most patient of BT users.

Edit: Laughed when I saw your nick. Thought it said Bandido.

2  General / Tips and tricks / MKV softsub & default audio/sub languages with MPlayer on: December 29, 2007, 11:24:21 AM
Anime fansub groups often specify font preferences when releasing in MKV format. This hint will allow you to view the anime with the special fonts rather than with the default, it also makes it so that mplayer automatically sets the audio language as japanese and subtitles as english.

Firstly, for MPlayer with english menus... say thanks to Zinden and follow the instructions in this thread:

Tasma / Desktop / File Associations

Type mkv into the search box and expand the result that comes up. You should see x-mastroka, click on it then select MPlayer in the Application Preference Order box. Move it to the top if it's not already, then click edit.

Click on the Application tab then delete the text in the Command textbox. Replace it with the following text:

gmplayer -alang jpn -slang eng -ass -correct-pts -really-quiet 1> /dev/null 2>&1 %U

Click OK, then Apply. Open konqueror and try it out.

Found it.. I guess it was a somewhat logical spot, about the last place I looked of course.

Tasma / Peripherals / Mouse / Visual feedback on activation
4  General / General topics / Re: Python programming on: December 23, 2007, 21:54:00 PM
Core Python Programming 2nd edition by Wesley Chun.

That is the best intro to intermediate Python book I've found, also purchased Rapid Gui Programming with Python and QT recently which is the only book out dealing with PyQT4 (online tutorials are also somewhat sparse atm since QT4 hasn't been widely adopted in distros yet).

5  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: wrong refresh rate on: December 23, 2007, 21:37:53 PM
To get a specific refresh rate, I'd add a Modeline to the Monitor section (and check HorizSync and VertRefresh are correct). To get a valid Modeline, you can either pinch it from the xorg.conf of a distro that autodetects your monitor settings properly or generate one using the online Modeline tool.



Modes      "1680x1050" "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600"

Modeline "1024x768" 81.54  1024 1064 1168 1352   768  768  770  804

EDIT: Wrote the post in the morning when half-braindead, re-read and realised I'd completely branched off the original question. Fixed.
6  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / disable kicker zoom? on: December 23, 2007, 12:39:11 PM
Hi, haven't posted here since I last used Pardus around the 1.0 release.

Wondering if anyone has any idea on how to disable that default icon zoom in kicker? I find it very annoying.
7  General / Website building / website suggestions on: April 17, 2007, 01:06:12 AM
If you can't use MySQL or PostgreSQL, you might want to look into using XML files instead. If your provider is still using PHP4, I'd give it a miss as XML support in 4 is a mess. If you've got PHP5 however, the code will be a lot cleaner and easier to learn.

I've never used Debian but I've always found the rampant mailing list infighting entertaining.
8  Assistance / Bugs / Low importance.. kmenu behaviour on: April 16, 2007, 23:48:23 PM
Just installed 2007.1 and enjoying it a lot, was very pleased to see the english language bugs from 2007 cleared up.

This is just a small thing I noticed, after a fresh install with the classic kmenu chosen in the configuration wizard the normal top-level menu directories are beneath the applications directory like in the Suse menu. The first time you edit and save anything in kmenu, the applications directory disappears and the normal kmenu directories move to toplevel (including previously hidden ones like lost & found).

It's not a gripe or anything, since I prefer kmenu without the applications directory just thought it might possibly be confusing to newcomers. Haven't submitted it to pardus bug reports for the usual lack of turkish-reading ability (hate not being sure if it's a dupe or not).
9  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Make changes to Launch Feedback in Pardus on: April 16, 2007, 23:30:58 PM
Run: kcmshell kcmlaunch

Warning: If you run kcmshell as root (or I would presume any user other than your default user account that spawns the kde daemon) it will load another instance of kde.
