(+1) user rating for gwhere-0.2.3, but there is no development after 2007,  where as
(-1) user rating for cdcat-1.2-1,but it is actively developed and presently v1.5 is available.
(-1) user rating for gnomecatalog-,but it might be needing many gnome dependencies.
Is there any more such application?
If not, having one of following in Pardus will be of very much help.

and now on my computer...  Grin

thank you very much a.palius! _O_

add. solved (so, it works q.e.d.  Grin )
Hi owiknowi,
Can you rearrange (move up or down) photos before renaming in this version?
Before @ a year I was not, hence using krename where it is possible.
As gprename has 6 dependencies, I have not installed it yet.
Shall decide after your feedback.
3  Assistance / Pardus Project / Re: Other DEs on: December 05, 2011, 13:47:01 PM
I want to try out other DEs (other than KDE) as well. What repo to add and what meta-package to install to get XFCE and other DEs (E17? etc.)

Look at this repo list  Mahmood: http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=3478.msg18496#msg18496


Sr. No.3. GNOME project   is inaccessible in the referred link. Is it merged with 'COMAK'?

5  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / How long Pardus 2011 will be supported? on: December 02, 2011, 19:21:50 PM
Hi friends,
Enjoying Pardus 2011 (updated to 2011.2) and don’t want to reinstall frequently. So am curious to know -
1) How long Pardus2011 will be supported after release of Pardus 2012?
2) After release of Pardus 2012,which of the following updates for 2011 will be available
(a) only security/critical updates
(b) updates of official Pardus packages
(c)  updates of non official, community maintained applications.
3) Will there be Pardus 2011.3 with later KDE than that of 2011.2's KDE 4.6.5, or we shall have to upgrade to Pardus 2012 for it?
4) Will facility to upgrade from 2011 to 2012 (distupdate) be available soon after release of Pardus 2012 or it will take time, how much time approximately?
5) Does version upgrade (distupdate) work smoothly or fresh install is preferable?
6) Normally how long it takes to port almost all of the packages of old version to new one?
7) What is the criteria for Pardus 2012? Kernel 3.x, Gnome 3.x or......? When it is planned for?

I am subscriber of  Pardus mailing list 1-user,2-stable updates & 3-upgrade(new version release info) with which nothing can be known about the things planned for future. Pardus wiki for  ‘current events’ and ‘recent changes’ too does not give any details regarding this presently. I am not a member of developers’  mailing list as I am not one among them. So are there any other sources to peep in to the future?

BTW it seems there is no mailing list for ‘community maintained non official applications updates’...am I wrong?

Thanks Lisa for the links.
Thanks a.palius & atolboo.
Just now I have installed it, have to try yet.

Name of program:-gsmartcontrol
Description:-GSmartControl is a graphical user interface for smartctl (from smartmontools package), which is a tool for querying and controlling SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) data on modern hard disk drives. It allows you to inspect the drive's SMART data to determine its health, as well as run various tests on it.

@ a.palius & atolboo
Installed both as mentioned,but later removed 'easycrypt'. I discovered that I was using only truecrypt till now!
I could not find any way to browse the truecrypt volume created earlier to install of easycrypt, which is outside of my home folder.
Does not matter. If want to create a new one, shall install it.

Here ends my list of 'must have' applications. Whatever I shall request in future shall be mainly in the interest of Pardus....
either applications to help in beautification of Pardus ( like 'phatch'...details later in the requirement) or to enrich the Pardus repository with good applications like 'calibre' etc.

Thanks for your efforts, help and cooperation.

Name of program- easycrypt_0.2.3.2

homepage- http://www.squeezedonkey.com/wiki/linux/index.php?title=EasyCrypt

source- http://www.squeezedonkey.com/svn/linux/trunk/releases/easycrypt/src/

Discription- Easy Crypt is simply a Graphical GUI of the simplest nature for the Security Command Line product TrueCrypt


Name of program- truecrypt_0.7a

homepage- http://www.truecrypt.org/

source- http://www.truecrypt.org/downloads

Description- Free open-source disk encryption software for Windows 7/Vista/XP, Mac OS X, and Linux


In Linux Mint 9,during installation of easycrypt,if I remember well,it automatically downloads latest version of truecrypt.
But now, when I checked in xbuntu 11.04 in virtual box of pardus 2011.1,easycrypt gets installed and at first run of easycrypt_2.3.2-0, it points the browser to the download page of truecrypt where option for '.tar.gz containing an executable setup file' is available. If such is the case,will a pisi package of latest truecrypt also be required?... Hence given links for truecrypt too.

After having this package,I can use the 'mint 9' partition as a test bed for 'fsarchiver' or in future may install Pardus 64 bit on it....but not immediately. Now it is time for me to enjoy Pardus 2011.1! Smiley

Thanks in anticipation.

@ atolboo
Got it .
I just asked because unnecessary pursues may disturb the person working and may cause irritation,which I don't want to do!
13  General / Wish list / Re: darktable for 2011.1 on: August 29, 2011, 12:30:21 PM

Thanks for your efforts.

14  General / Wish list / Re: darktable for 2011.1 on: August 28, 2011, 18:34:54 PM
Darktable 0.9.2 released on 2011-08-27.

Homepage:- http://darktable.sourceforge.net/
Source (download) https://sourceforge.net/projects/darktable/files/darktable/0.9/darktable-0.9.2.tar.gz/download
(2011-08-27) we released version 0.9.2, with a few bugfixes on top of release 0.9.1. this is a new point release in the stable branch thus there are no new features, just

    updated translations
    tiling for memory hungry operations and as workaround for old opencl 1.0 drivers
    new color matrices and white balance presets
    a lot of stability issues have been resolved
    a lot of performance improvements (more sse code, better opencl code)

I do not know exactly what update policy is followed in pardus, but this update will give more stability and performance improvement.

With regards.
