16  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Setting Up Startup, Shutdown and System Sounds on: February 04, 2010, 04:12:54 AM
atolboo when I go to /usr/kde/4/share/sounds with Dolphin it can’t play the system sounds.

Something strange is going on here. I tried playing old system sounds with Dolphin for other distros and some sound files I made as stratup sounds from music files. Here are the results:


Dolphin Plays:

From Pardus; pop.wav, Bit rate: 128, Sample rate: 44100

From PCLOS; KDE_Window_Shade_Up.ogg, Bit rate: 689, Sample rate: 44100

Dolphin Doesn’t Play:

From Pardus; KDE-Sys-Log-In-Long.ogg, Bit rate: 128, Sample rate: 44100

From Pardus; KDE_Window_Shade_Up.ogg, Bit rate: 160, Sample rate: 48000


Amarok Plays:

From Pardus; pop.wav, Bit rate: 128, Sample rate: 44100

From PCLOS; KDE_Window_Shade_Up.ogg, Bit rate: 689, Sample rate: 44100

Amarok Doesn’t Play

From Pardus; KDE-Sys-Log-In-Long.ogg, Bit rate: 128, Sample rate: 44100

From Pardus; KDE_Window_Shade_Up.ogg, Bit rate: 160, Sample rate: 48000
:
Those results are confusing to me So I tried using Amarok to see if it could play the Ubuntu sounds and it did. The Ubuntu sounds are .wav files. So, I copied the Ubuntu sounds for startup, shutdown, question and error to the KDE sound folder in Pardus and used “System Notification Configuration” to replace the Pardus KDE sounds with the Ubuntu sounds. It worked!

Now when I boot Pardus it playes the Ubuntu startup.wav and when I restart or shutdown the computer Pardus plays the Ubuntu shutdown.wav. I’d rather have the Pardus sounds playing, but no one gets everything they want in this life.

Thanks for all your help guys.

Good Luck Nergård. I hope you get your problem fixed.

Hi Nergård and atolboo.

Nergård it could be a bug or it could be something else. I've learned with Linux that what doesn't work in one version usually will work in the next version.

atolboo I looked at that thread. I knew about the problems Nergård is having and who knows what it could be but everything thing else in Pardus is working for me except Blender 2.48a and I'm  sure they'll both work in the 2010 version. It's not life or death stuff. It's ok.

There isn't any place in this forum to post any desktop screen shots is there? I mean a screen shot of my desktop.

atolboo Thanks for the picture. This is my set up:

Andreas I set that up and nothing works. It's ok if there isn't any startup and shutdown sounds. I can always just whistle...lol.

I looked at the screen shots (thank you for posting them) and that's how I have it set up on my computer. Still not working though.

Hi atolboo, I can hear music files in the Gnome Mplayer and videos on YouTube so all the other sound stuff is working. I't's just the system sounds I can't hear.
22  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Setting Up Startup, Shutdown and System Sounds on: February 03, 2010, 17:17:39 PM
Andreas yes It's on Master.
23  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Setting Up Startup, Shutdown and System Sounds on: February 03, 2010, 16:53:33 PM
Thanks for the help Andreas and atolboo.

Andreas, I installed the KDE sounds and the system sounds still don’t work.

atolboo I’m using the old style KDE 3.x Menu on the Panel and there the System Settings > Notifications > System Notifications > Applications > Event source: KDE System Notifications is under Favorites. It’s easier for me to use the old style menu.

So I made sure everything for system sounds is set up ok and I installed the kdebase-sounds and checked everything again and even rebooted my computer and the system sounds still don’t work.

I was thinking may be it’s because I installed Pardus 2009.1. May be if I had installed Pardus 2009 and updated/upgraded everything would be working ok. I don’t know but I have a feeling that might be the problem. If that’s what’s causing somethings to not work I think I’ll just keep using 2009.1 until the 2010 version is finished and do a clean install with that.

Thanks for the help Andreas. I found it under "Favorites". None of the system sounds work. I tried clicking on that little button that plays the sound so you can hear what it sounds like and there was no sound.

I looked at everything else I could find for sound and everything seems to be set up right. I have a C-Media CMl8738 (model 37) audio chip in the motherboard and it's always worked with Linux and ALSA. I can't figure out what the problem is.
25  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / [SOLVED] Setting Up Startup, Shutdown and System Sounds on: February 02, 2010, 19:45:41 PM
I looked at the menus in Pardus and the Wiki and searched the Forum and I can’t find anything to set up the startup, shutdown and system sounds. I checked Root/usr/share/sounds and found only folders for “alsa“, “gnome”, and “opl3“. So I tried to install “kdebase-sounds and I got a message saying :

The following packages conflicts:
kdebase-sounds conflicts with: [sound-theme-pardus]

Remove the conflicting packages from the system?

So, I didn’t install “kdebase-sounds”. How do I get the startup, shutdown and system sounds working? Thanks for any help.
26  Assistance / Software / Re: Installing Blender 2.48a in Pardus on: February 02, 2010, 02:57:58 AM
Thanks for the help Andreas and atolboo. I tried installing Blender 2.48a from the tar.bz2 file using the Archive Manager and using the Terminal and I just can't get it to work. I also installed Blender 2.49b from the Package Manager and that version boots but it locks up my computer because of something about OpenGL in that version.

May be there is some way to get version 2.48a to boot but I don't know how. 2.48a does boot in Ubuntu 9.10, Mandriva 2010 and Mepis 8.0.12. I've always had to have at least two different distros of Linux install in order to run all the software I need so this isn't unusual.

I'm keeping Pardus on my hard drive though. A little problem like this won't make me stop using Pardus.
27  Assistance / Software / Installing Blender 2.48a in Pardus on: February 01, 2010, 10:02:34 AM
Blender 2.49b is in the Pardus repos but I need to use 2.48a because my old video card does not work with 2.49b. It’s something about OpenGL in 2.49b.

Anyway, should I use the Blender 2.48a tar.bz2 file? Should I install it as root or as user? With Ubuntu I installed it into the User partition into the User folder. Should I do the same thing with Pardus? Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the help nougah.

I am so dumb sometimes! You know what I forgot to do? In Mixer I forgot to put a check mark in PCM Capture. Now it works.
29  Assistance / Software / (SOLVED) No Sound Recording With Audacity on: January 31, 2010, 21:30:43 PM
I was trying to record a radio program with Audacity from the BBC iPlayer. The sound is ok until I click the Record button on Audicity. When I click the Record button the sound stops and the lines in Audictiy show it's not recording any sound.

The same thing happens when I do it the other way around by starting the recording in Audicity and then click the Play button in the BBC iPlayer. When the radio program starts playing there isn't any sound. Is there anyway to fix that problem? Thanks for any help.
30  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: New with questions on: January 31, 2010, 21:22:56 PM
The problem I had in going to Root as a User was caused by not reading the install part of the Pardus Wiki. When I set up the User Account I unchecked/unticked the “Give administrator privileges to this user”. It was late, I was in a hurry and I wasn't thinking. So, I couldn't go to Root as that User in the Terminal.

I corrected that by using the “User Manager” to edit the details for the User. I checked/ticked “Give administrator rights”, clicked Ok, copied and pasted the commands into the Terminal, typed in the password for the User and everything installed without any problems.

Thanks very much for all your help guys. I need to finish reading the Wiki now.
