Thank you very much to Gürkan for all your hard work in writing this book and for translating it into English. I’m looking forward to reading it.

Ok, I filed a bug report. I searched for the other problems I'm having with 2009.1 at the bug site and it looks like other people are having the same problems with 2009 that I'm having with 2009.1. I'm sure they'll all be fixed before the 2010 version is released. I have a lot of faith in the Pardus team.

I did an update with the package manager a few days ago and now k3b sees the DVD+RW's as DVD+RW's. I don't remember everything in the update but one of them was a kernel update.

I think since Pardus 2010 won't be finished until 2011 I might install Pardus 2009 and see if I have the same problems with 2009.


UPDATE: I was just looking at the bug reports and it looks like people are having the same problems with 2009 as I've had with 2009.1 so I guess I'll just leave 2009.1 installed.

Ok, I can report is as a bug. It's funny though I'm having problems with Pardus 2009.1 because I didn't have problems with PCLOS 2009 but I had a lot of problems with PCLOS 2009.1. Computers are very strange things sometimes.

I tried the Live CD and it doesn't play the system sounds either. I even did a new burn on a different CD-RW and still no system sounds. I also looked at all the sound settings for everything that controls sound in Pardus and I did have to click on Play System Sounds or something. Anyway, the Live CD did play the Ubuntu system sounds.

I'm just going to wait for Pardus 2010. I'm sure everything will work in 2010.
6  General / Wish list / Re: Brasero on: February 07, 2010, 22:03:11 PM
atolboo thanks for the link. I’ll talk to Sebastian Trueg about the problem. I bought a spindle of DVD+RW’s and k3b see’s them as CD-RW’s. I used k3b in Ubuntu to check them to see if the DVD’s were bad and k3b in Ubuntu see’s them as DVD+RW’s.

My computer is 9 years old now and maybe that’s part of the problem. Also, I did have Pardus check the CD before I installed Pardus 2009.1 to make sure I had a good burn and the CD checked out alright. Also, Abiword is doing strange things I’ve never seen it do before in other distros but I’m not going to post anything about that. As far as I’m concerned Pardus is much better then all the other distros I’ve tried and even with the problems I’ve had I still believe in Pardus completely.

Hi jan37 and atolboo. Jan37 I’ve been using Linux for about 3 years now and although it is theoretically possible to fix any problem in Linux one does not always have the time it might take to hunt down the problem and fix it. Sometimes it’s better to just reinstall or just wait for the next version of the distro or sometimes it requires a bug fix.

I found system sounds from another distro that work with Pardus and for now that’s all I really have time for. I’m sure the system sounds will work perfectly in Pardus 2010 and if they don’t it’s not a life or death matter for me. I can live without system sounds if I have to. So, for me, for now, the problem is solved.

k3b tries to format the DVD-RW because it can't really erase a DVD-RW and the formatting ends with an error message but Brasero and xfburn can erase a DVD-RW. You're right, k3b can just overwrite a DVD+RW but not a DVD-RW.
9  General / Wish list / Re: Brasero on: February 05, 2010, 21:36:51 PM
Then I'll have to use xfburn to replace Brasero. I don't want to chuck my DVD-RW's for DVD+RW's when my DVD-RW's still have a lot of life in them.
10  General / Wish list / Re: Brasero on: February 05, 2010, 20:59:45 PM
Thanks for the help Andreas and atolboo.

atolboo k3b can't erase the DVD-RW disks I have. It's not a problem with Pardus though it's a problem with k3b in every distro. Brasero on the other hand in every distro never has a problem erasing DVD-RW's.

The Problem with k3b is it can't really erase DVD-RW's it can only format them. I discovered though that xfburn for XFce can also erase DVD-RW's as well as Brasero but I still wouldn't mind having Brasero in Pardus Gnome.

Ok, I installed VLC and Kaffeine to see if that would help with playing sound files. Dolphin still doesn't play the Pardus KDE system file "KDE-Sys-Log-In-Long.ogg" however Dolphin does play the PCLOS 2007 KDE system file KDE-Sys-Log-In-Long.ogg.

VLC and GnomeMPlayer do play the Pardus KDE system file "KDE-Sys-Log-In-Long.ogg". I need to check one other thing and I'll get right back to you.
 

Ok, I tried setting up the Pardus KDE system startup and shutdown files in System Notifications > System Settings and rebooted my computer. They didn't play. So, then I setup the PCLOS KDE system sound files for startup and shutdown in System Notifications > System Settings and rebooted my computer. They played. Also the sound files from Ubuntu for startup and shutdown play.

So, I used Audacity to edit the Pardus KDE system file "KDE-Sys-Log-In-Long.ogg" and increased the volume of the file and it plays in GnomeMPlayer but not in System Notifications > System Settings. So, it looks to me like the problem is with Pardus or KDE in Pardus playing the KDE system sound files that are shipped with Pardus 2009.1. Although, I could be wrong. I don't know.

Is there any chance of getting the CD/DVD burner for Gnome added to the repos? It's called Brasero.

Hi Andreas. I couldn't find vorbis-tools in the repos so I searched for ogg and vorbis and installed pyvorbis and pyogg. Amarok still can't play the Pardus KDE system files.

I think the only way to fix this problem is to install Pardus 2009. I don't really have the time to do that though because I have too much work to do. I have to keep the money coming in or I'll never get a Maybach.
15  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Setting Up Startup, Shutdown and System Sounds on: February 04, 2010, 09:09:37 AM
Hi Andreas. I read that thread before and also in this thread http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=3196.15 Michiel gave me the list of extra packages to install but they didn't make a difference. I've never seen anything like this happen with the sound files in a distro before. I can't imagine what's causing it. It might have something to do with my old sound chip though.

I still think Pardus is the best distro I've ever used.
