31  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Up dates? on: August 06, 2010, 12:51:11 PM
I know this sounds daft but when package upgrades are shown should I upgrade all or just be selective?

Hello John,

I use the same method you did. Just to clarify, did you go into settings advanced or settings general? In settings general, you can change colour schemes, styles, and icon sets.  In advanced, you have limited options that seem to affect only the taskbar and widget styles, not the colour schemes of KDE applications. My Dolphin has the system colours that I chose in settings general.

I went into advanced- didn't realise it was in general as well , many thanks- sorted. Wink

I went into systems settings advanced - it's in there.
Surely there is a simpler way than going into terminal

37  Assistance / Software / Re: Installing VMware - need help(SOLVED) on: July 30, 2010, 12:48:46 PM
I managed to get it running - more by luck than judgment  Wink
I went into Root and deleted any file that refered to VMware then reinstalled as per the wiki.

.........d there is no file vmware' in /etc/init.d
^^ this is the root of the problem.
I will try to replay this problem on my testPC.
During this test on my testPC after a new installation of P2009.2 I found a wrong version of VMware-Player-***.bundle in the command "sudo sh VMware-Player-***"
And this will result in an error  "File or directory not found".
And as a result VMware-Player can not be started and there is no menu entry.
I am sorry for the error and did a repair.
In the attachment konsole-output.txt you can seen that after a successful installation there is a file vmware in /etc/init.d

So--- How do I repair mine?

Went through the whole installer sequence again including sh VMware-Player-3.1.0-261024.i386.bundle
When I ran again I still got Command '/etc/init.d/vmware 'start'' not found.

Is it possible I've downloaded the wrong program as you had sh VMware-Player-2.5.2-156735.i386.bundle

Went to the  Wiki- got to this point

 Required modification of VMware-Player executable file

For Pardus it is necessary to modify the VMware-Player executable file in order to get a working VMware-Player and network connection for the Guest_OS after a restart of Pardus (Host_OS)

       1. Open VMware-Player executable file in Kwrite as root with

          /usr/kde/4/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu kwrite /usr/bin/vmplayer

          or Alt+F2 and

          kdesu kwrite /usr/bin/vmplayer

       2. Add at line 11 (just before "set -e")

          /usr/kde/4/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu /etc/init.d/vmware start (for Pardus 2009)

          kdesu /etc/init.d/vmware start (for Pardus 2008)

       3. Save and close Kwrite.

Did this  followed by

 Creating the New Virtual Machine

Start System > VMware Player and use the "Create a New Virtual Machine" option.

did this and got  

                           Command '/etc/init.d/vmware 'start'' not found.

Please help (in simple terms , I'm a newbie)

Hmmm, installed OK in that I haven't lost anything . I think I used the wrong selection for the "home" folder when partioning everthing has gone into a partion called ARCHIVE and none of the programs work.
Should I have selected the option "files"?
43  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Migrating to Pardus - (Sorted) on: July 23, 2010, 17:25:09 PM
    I would like to migrate to Pardus without losing all my existing set up.

 My hard disc is partioned as follows:-

PClos root 12GB/swap 3.9GB/Home 449Gb

So, using "advanced" if I set it up I to just format root and swap will I retain My home folder?

and will all my existing programs run correctly ?

Only found PARDUS a couple of days ago- wow!
I shall be migrating to it once one or two questions are answered.
I'm lucky, I have an external hard drive on which I have tried out several Linux OS but this is the best!!
I'm retired so have plenty of time to enjoy playing on the computer.
Allthough I have played with Linux for some time I still consider myself a "newbie" as I don't delve to deeply into terminal unless given simple instructions Embarrassed
