1  Assistance / Bugs / Re: Problem with dualbooting Pardus 2011. on: May 04, 2011, 18:26:45 PM
This is the tutorial me and a friend (me on 32-bit, he on 64-bit) both followed to dual-boot Pardus 2011 and Windows 7. Neither of us have encountered any problems so far. It worked perfectly on an install where Windows 7 was there first and we were adding Pardus 2011 after.
2  Assistance / Hardware / Wacom Bamboo - Left-Handed on: April 28, 2011, 14:49:10 PM
One of the things that most impressed me about Pardus was that it recognized my Wacom Bamboo graphics tablet instantly when I tested the live CD. I remember when I was using SuSE 11.3 and had to do a bunch of crazy tricks in the command line and still couldn't get it to function properly, so this was a huge pleasant surprise. However, I am left-handed, and unsure of how to tell the tablet to recognize this (holding it upside down works for now, but not very smoothly so I'd like to actually set it up properly). I've located the graphics tablet settings, but don't see an option for it. If I had to guess, it's 'pad mapping' and I'll either have to change the rotation or the working area...but I am unsure which or how to do it. Does anyone know how I could configure the tablet profile to work in left-handed mode? Google isn't turning up much advice, I am guessing left-handed KDE artists are few in number or just quiet. Sad
3  Assistance / Software / Transparency in Kolourpaint, Pardus 2011 on: April 26, 2011, 19:34:57 PM
I'm sure this topic sounds silly because it's just KolourPaint, why use that and not GIMP...but I do a lot of pixel and sprite artwork, so transparency and KolourPaint is important for me. However, in Pardus 2011 when I zoom in on a transparency it looks all garbled...and when I ignore that and think, it's okay, it's just what it shows me but if I save it will be transparent...all transparent areas become a white background. Is there any idea what this problem could be? Sad It really stinks having to launch GIMP just to create my transparencies when KolourPaint is supposed to be able to do that.

For some reason they vanished, but then I did an update and they came back. I'm not sure why, but it's all okay now.
6  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Lost Package Manager Categories? (Solved) on: April 25, 2011, 07:42:01 AM
Screenshot

I don't know why, but my categories disappeared? I don't know how to bring them back, and I don't like having only 'all packages' to choose from when searching programs...help, how can I return the categories? Sad

8  General / Introduce yourself / New to Pardus and Loving It on: April 24, 2011, 23:49:27 PM
Hello, I'm Alex from Massachusetts in the USA. I've been looking around for a good KDE distro for a long time, disappointed with a few things in OpenSuSE 11.3 (I loved 11.2), not quite liking PCLinuxOS, Debian and Fedora's KDE attempts just not being very good, and even the wonderful Linux Mint project not doing as well in their KDE version as their GNOME. I've tried one after another since OpenSuSE 11.2 to find a distro I could love as much, and my search seemed like it was going nowhere...until I discovered some very positive reviews of Pardus 2011. I had heard of Pardus before, even tried the 2009 version on my mom's netbook last summer before settling on a more netbook-centric distro, and I did remember liking it. After playing with the live CD and in VirtualBox (I was sad Pisi was not on the live; I know it only installs to RAM but I like testing the package manager when I look at new distros), I couldn't find anything to complain about, and found a lot of really nice touches no other distro I had tried had. Kudos to the Pardus development team for really doing their best to create a fantastic KDE distro!!

I have only had Pardus installed to my machine for a day now but I am loving it already. If I had to find one thing to complain about, and it's a minor one at that, it's the small package selection that I hope will continue to be updated. In particular I would like to see KOffice and Empathy in the repositories. Other than that though, everything has been running smoothly, things look and feel great, and I'm very comfortable here. I hope to stay with Pardus for a very long time!!
