Okay...I got in this evening and ran this.
Everything ran smooth as silk!
The original Olympus program gives the date the recording was made but this one doesn't have that.
I suspect that feature was not built into ODVR. I will get by without it though.

I use my recorder at work everyday and this is an important program to me.
I was in serious need of this.
I really appreciate all the help!
Thank you very much.

Quick response.
I am on my way out the door to work so this will be quick.
The program installed well from the package manager.

When I started the program it recognized my device which I had already plugged in to USB.
It found all the folders on my device.
It showed a list of the files on my device.
I prepared a download file location.

At first I could not make it download them.
The buttons and menus would not respond, although it looked as though the should have.

I double-clicked on a file in the list and they began to download.
It downloaded about 15 of 117 files very well but as I typed this it has stopped running.
This is possibly system overload on my machine but I don't think so.

I absolutely have to leave at this time so I am unable to report more until this evening.
I think it is going to work.
I just wanted to give you all some feedback.
I appreciate all the work on this.
Thank you!  Smiley

 I am needing to download my files from my Olympus Digital Voice Recorder VN240-PC.
It is recognized when I plug it in to my USB but it doesn't show up in my file manager.
I need a program that recognizes it.
This is what I have found so far.
I believe if I can get this installed I'll be good to go.
But I don't know how to install it to Pardus.  Huh?

According to others in the Ubuntu forum the above driver should work.
LinuxQuestions forum has some more info here.
Most helpful link for those searching for info on using this driver is here.

Instruction Manual for this recorder can be found here.
Also, ODVR driver install instructions are further down on page.
Are there any other solutions that others have found?
Thanks for all help.

Yes, golge, I am wanting to setup SMF locally. I would like to play with the dashboard to get an idea of how well I like it. Hopefully I would be able to actually do some of the setup and then transfer my work to either a server station I have built or else to an online host at a later time.
 This is the first time I've ever done this and I'm not sure just how it will end up. I'm thinking that a separate install of Pardus on my server machine, maybe the Corporate version is what I might like to have eventually.
 It seems to me that it would be the safe thing to do to have all my work locally but away from my regular desktop.
 Am I thinking right and is Pardus the way to go with this?
 I am trying to avoid any risk of loss in the future to online host or a desktop crash or just plain "bloat".
 This gives me some direction and I really appreciate everyone's responses.
 John A, thanks for the links, especially the one with the comparisons. it was reassuring for me.
I welcome any suggestions for using a different program other than SMF if anyone has any cautions for me.
35  General / Wish list / Forum Software for Pardus on: May 22, 2011, 08:21:03 AM
 Are there any forum software programs in the repositories?
I am looking at the SMF program here.
I see that this forum is using SMF. Is there another name for it that I should look for in the repositories?
Has it or can it be packaged for Pardus?
I would like something similar to vBulletins in a free open source if possible.
I have no idea what others would consider the best software to run on Pardus/Linux.
All input would be appreciated.

John A, I ran a copy of FocusWriter on my Win 7 and the sounds worked fine there.
Sounds also work with the portable Windows version running in Wine.
Any suggestions why they are not working on Pardus?
Not a big deal, I just like to know these things.
Pretty sure I've run this through all it paces and other than the sounds it works perfect.
37  General / Wish list / Re: FocusWriter (fullscreen, distraction-free word processor ) on: May 15, 2011, 10:32:54 AM
 I am really finding this program to be useful.
It sets a good writing mood without distractions.

I haven't been able to get the typewriter sounds to work but they would probably get turned off most of the time anyway. Everything else is working just fine though.

For those that would like to add a few themes to their new writer here is a nice collection I found.

I almost never found where this program was installed at on my machine but it installed here.
Not sure I understand this yet but I'm sure I eventually will.
38  General / Wish list / Re: FocusWriter (fullscreen, distraction-free word processor ) on: May 14, 2011, 23:33:55 PM
Got it John.
It installed and is running without a hitch.
I've set up a custom theme that really is relaxing and free from distractions, ran through all the menus, changed the fonts, page colors, did some spell checking, formatting and pretty much exercised all the menus, and everything seems to be working fine on my 32 bit setup.
Stepping back and looking at things I think this is going to be a winner for writers needing to rid themselves of distractions. Very nice indeed.
Thanks for packaging this program and all your hard work!
39  General / Wish list / Re: FocusWriter (fullscreen, distraction-free word processor ) on: May 14, 2011, 11:23:04 AM
Bug report says FocusWriter should be in the dev repositories.
I can't find it. Am I missing something.
I've been anxiously waiting to try this one out.
Anyone ever compared it to TextRoom found here

40  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: KDE 4.6 on: May 05, 2011, 07:20:41 AM
Is this
64 bit install unbootable.
system on a single partition Huh?
Or does it have a separate "/ "=System and "/home"=User partition Huh?

Just saw this checking my mail before bed so I'll have to get back tomorrow evening. 
It's on a different hard drive from what I'm on now. I have to disconnect it to boot this one because I haven't corrected the grub yet. It's a dual install with Win 7 that is used by others so i wanted to make sure i got it right before making any changes to grub. But ran great before the upgrade to 4.6.
 I see some answers I will try later and hopefully have good news or more info tomorrow evening. I do think I did the default install though.
Thanks everyone!
41  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: KDE 4.6 on: May 03, 2011, 18:34:02 PM
KDE 4.6 upgrade made my system 64 bit install unbootable.
It comes back up to splash screen and starts to load the KDE desktop screen but stops at the little "tool setting" display then goes to the login screen. It won't start in failsafe or any other mode that I know how to use.
I've re-installed to another partition but would like to get back to this one for some things.
Is there a way to roll this back?

 Grin JOY Grin JOY Grin JOY!!!!
 You guys are the greatest!
I love this program! I am soooo visual and can get so much more accomplished with this program than I can with the "hunt-n-peck" I have to do with the others.
I think this is a great addition to my Pardus install!
At first I thought it was something totally different until I got it set up.
Can't tell how much I appreciate your work!

43  General / General topics / My iTunes Podcast Solution. on: April 30, 2011, 10:25:11 AM
Here's a contribution for those searching for an answer to playing iTunes on Linux.
I found this solution and it works great.
Programs needed:
Go here for a quick start. http://abwrites.wordpress.com/2010/06/20/getting-itunes-podcasts-on-linux/
It sends you to Feed Flipper:http://picklemonkey.net/flipper/convert.php
Feed Flipper is a free alternative to iTunes which converts an audio iTunes podcast into an RSS XML feed. The resulting URL (the Feed Flipper URL + your iTunes podcast URL) is then available to be subscribed to directly into your RSS feed reader of choice for ongoing podcast delivery.
Use "gPodder" for your  subscription feed.
My first feed had an alternate link available where downloads were already converted.
Use "Clementine" player to listen to audio feeds. gPodder will load up straight into Clementine. Smooth... Grin
I haven't run video yet. May need to chose your favorite viewer for this.
Hope this helps someone.
44  Assistance / Software / Re: KeepNote? on: April 29, 2011, 07:18:29 AM
 I'm looking at programs like this myself hoping to decide which one to stick with.
Have you looked at "Basket"?
It's in the package manager and I'm liking the looks of it.
Just wondering if you had compared them and had any comments.
45  General / Wish list / Re: Useful Graphical Disk Usage Tool on: April 29, 2011, 06:42:20 AM
Thanks for your responses.
I took another look at Filelight and may be able to get this to work.
The first time I looked at it I thought it was pretty useless under its default settings.
A second closer look reveals much more potential.
I liked the "folder" type view of Kdirstat (Windirstat) though, which makes it super easy to find files and their sizes.
I'm a "visual" type person and need good graphic presentations.
Having to hover over to search is like looking for a needle in a haystack. I don't see a way to make Filelight show a folder view.
Also, I took a closer look at Krusader and will definetly find uses for this prog. The Kompare feature is very nice and will be useful in the future.
Thanks again for your help.
I am determined to get used to Linux and I'm loving Pardus!
Great to see how so many things work right out of the box.
