Why is there no polish language??? Strange, because it was in RC Sad
2  Assistance / News & Announcements / Re: Clementine as default music player in Pardus 2011 ? on: January 18, 2011, 21:14:01 PM
Yes, indeed. But there are other aspects. Clementine eats less resources, definitely, so in my opinion it's better than Amarok.

But personally I think that Deadbeef should be the default audio player. It's very well integrated with KDE, fast and has a lot of futures.

And this is for x86_64 systems. I built it and installed, can someone confirm it works?

DE = desktop environment Wink
Thanks and I don't expect this to happen as Pardus is supposed to be a KDE distribution.


This is hope Wink

And yes, gnome + compiz works well and fast, kwin is much slower.

But on this computer even flash should work ok. I think that it could run fast but on Gnome. KDE is a resource eater and it is the fact.

I really realise what you feel. I think it's rather KDE fault. This desktop environment is the heaviest for computers. Yes, strigi, akonadi, I don't really need it and don't know why it is enabled by default.

Future releases definitely should have an option to choose DE during installation.
8  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Minimal nightly build on: December 19, 2010, 10:08:27 AM
Hello Wink

In nightly builds there is a minimal iso to download.

What exactly is this project? What are its purposes?

Will there be minimal iso of final release of Pardus?

It's without any desktop environment, right? So I think it's not for beginners.

It would be nice to have in Pardus 2011 final release a possibility to install clean system. Only with essential packages, with desktop environment, without so many programs that I really don't use. At a pinch it could be a question in Kaptan - "What would you like to install?", and for example possibilities to install only a browser that I choose, with one button. Something like that.

If Polish language is selected, it stucks at 50% too.
12  General / Wish list / Re: DeadBeef audio player on: July 08, 2010, 17:07:23 PM
Thank you very much, I think a lot of Pardus users will choose DeaDBeeF for a main audio player Smiley

I wrote a mail to the author of DeaDBeef whether he could post a link to pisi package on the player's homepage.
13  General / Wish list / DeadBeef audio player on: June 27, 2010, 16:27:24 PM
I was looking for a small, responsible player that can read cue sheets and I eventually found this:

DeadBeef audio player

homepage: http://deadbeef.sourceforge.net/about.html

link to source package: http://sourceforge.net/projects/deadbeef/files/deadbeef-0.4.1.tar.bz2/download

According to "about" section, the player's features are:

mp3, ogg vorbis, flac, ape, wv, wav, m4a, mpc, cd audio (and many more)
sid, nsf and lots of other popular chiptune formats
ID3v1, ID3v2.2, ID3v2.3, ID3v2.4, APEv2, xing/info tags support
character set detection for non-unicode id3 tags - supports cp1251 and iso8859-1
unicode tags are fully supported as well (both utf8 and ucs2)
cuesheet (.cue files) support, with charset detection (utf8/cp1251/iso8859-1)
tracker modules like mod, s3m, it, xm, etc
HVSC song length database support for sid
gtk2 interface with efficient custom widgets
no GNOME or KDE dependencies
minimize to tray, with scrollwheel volume control
drag and drop, both inside of playlist, and from filemanagers and such
control playback from command line
global hotkeys
multiple playlists
album artwork display
18-band graphical equalizer
metadata editor
user-customizable groups in playlists
user-customizable columns with flexible title formatting
radio and podcast support for ogg vorbis, mp3 and aac streams
gapless playback
plugin support; bundled with lots of plugins, such as global hotkeys and last.fm scrobbler; sdk is included
duration calculation is as precise as possible for vbr mp3 files (with and without xing/info tags)
was tested and works on x86, x86_64 and ppc64 architectures. should work on most modern platforms

I checked it and I think it might be the player I have always looked for! NATIVE (!!!) cue support (it's a BIG shame that only a few linux players works with cue, and personally i have a lot of music as one big flac and one cue file), much faster than Amarok (I really don't need many functions that are in Amarok), integrates well with system theme, has NATIVE EQUALIZER, many plugins - such as last.fm scrobbler, well, I really have to test it more.

It's a fresh project, but I think, having considered the aspects above, it deserves a place in every linux distribution repository.

Well, I think that generally worse problem is that programs' makers only take care of deb and rpm distributions users. It's very likely that some rare programs are packed with dev or rpm system that makes installing a piece of cake, but other users have to compile, combine and it's sometimes, like in this situation, very hard Tongue

I think that developers of Opera web browser chose very good option. They provide files with one running script file and it can work on every linux without any installation. I recommend checking the new snapshot: http://snapshot.opera.com/unix/BzzzzzZZZZzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz_10.60-6383/ - choose opera-10.60-6383.i386.linux.tar.bz2.
15  Assistance / Hardware / Re: Installing Canon Pixma MP250 on: June 23, 2010, 13:37:18 PM
I think it's shameful that Canon provides drivers without any support. What can a person that isn't a linux geek do with this, I think nothing, They can only try to install everything that is in the driver pack, but I must say I tried to install from sources different programs about 20 times and NONE of these attempts were succesful - I always had some errors. But this is a problem for another topic Tongue

atolboo - this turboprint works! Pity it's not free. But this should be really the example how to make beginners' life easy with linux - simple interface, graphical gui, simply clicking without terminal. And works on every linux, not like deb or rpm. Kudos to turboprint makers.
