It should be in System Settngs, Login Screen, under the Convenience tab.

There are anti-wiki spam extensions listed here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Anti-spam_features
Perhaps some could be implemented in the Pardus wiki.

The difference with KDE 4 was that they had to rewrite it to take advantage of Qt 4 technologies among other things. What we have now is different but not radically so. Gnome and Unity are and it seems that it's just for the sake of change.

I didn't like either one of them. I felt like I was 6 inches tall using a smart phone with a mouse. My monitor is pretty big. They might work on netbooks but I'll keep my KDE either way.  Grin

It's still a nice piece of advertisement. In order to record most of the Pardus specific features, you'd have to use a VM. The last VM video of Pardus I saw was horrid.  :'(

Okay, I'll do a fresh install. When I first started using Linux, I had everything on one partition by default and that turned out to be a pain. Not so this time.  Grin

I'm sure many of you have seen this by now.

Ritchard Gale's story:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVBPiZtgYCE

Casey Heynes's story:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AUCIVdSims

This reminds me of a story called The Elephant and the Rope.  If you look at Casey, he just takes it. He's the elephant (regarding the story, not his weight). You can tell he doesn't want to fight nor does he know how to fight. But, he's so much bigger and stronger that he actually picks Ritchard up and SLAMS him to the ground - leaving Ritchard a limping disaster!

Ritchard, on the other hand, punches Casey in the face and continues on with the support of his friends, one of whom is actually working the camera that caught it.

The Elephant and the Rope:

As I was passing the elephants, I suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

I saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

I was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!

YAY.... My first helpful answer.     Grin  Grin    Grin
I'm happy to be of help at last.

I'm sure it won't be your last.  Smiley Good job! I love that feature. I came across it by accident one day by moving my mouse to the top left corner.

You know who did that, right? Good job, Joseph!  Wink
24  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / My PiSi Cat is Injured! on: March 27, 2011, 03:47:13 AM
I used the devel repo to upgrade to KDE 4.6.1. I only selected the packages listed under KDE Desktop. It successfully upgraded to 4.6.1 but now when I go to start my graphical PiSI, mi PiSi cat bounces up and down for a few seconds then just vanishes. Should I have upgraded every package in devel?

I see a contact form but there doesn't appear to be a formal submission option.  Huh? Perhaps you could select "question" and ask for a submission.
26  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: upgrade packages on: March 26, 2011, 21:07:57 PM
Do you have more than one official repo enabled? DavidD got the 'upgrade not possible' message when he had both the devel and stable repos enabled at the same time.
27  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: KDE 4.6 on: March 25, 2011, 18:24:05 PM
KDE 4.6.1 IS OUT!

NOW INTO PARDUS REPOSITORY!


Special thanks to maintainers Cheesy

I'm not showing any updates yet. Is it in the stable repo or dev/testing?

David,

I'm still downloading. I'll leave it to the experts to help you.

I think John posted the flock of updates. Smiley I don't know what to tell you. Do you have PiSi set to check for updates every so many hours? Not using Pardus on a regular basis would explain the 63 updates.

Why did you post "Solved"? Is it solved?
