31  Assistance / Bugs / Re: ATI Catalyst Control Center on: April 29, 2007, 16:07:00 PM
Hey,

This program is as far as I know a replacement for the old firegl_control panel. What you could try is running the executable from the commandline and see if it gives any errors. Maybe those errors give a better explanation why the program isn't running properly.

Regards.

32  Assistance / Hardware / webcam does not work on: April 02, 2007, 14:05:11 PM
Hey,

I just googled for your camera and found the following thread on linuxquestions.org:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions//showthread.php?t=488002

Then I did a search on the lsusb website and found that this webcam is not supported:

33  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / THE 3 DESKTOPS IN package manager/gnome,kde, & free desk on: March 29, 2007, 11:38:44 AM
Hey,

Probably the first thing I have to mention is that the free desktop part isn't really a desktop. It are just some libraries for the X server (X server is the server that is used to display desktops and make sure your mouse and keyboard input devices work with the Graphical User Interface).

That leaves us with 2 desktops. KDE and GNOME, Both are not just desktops, they are desktop environments. The difference is that a desktop is just a graphical userinterface and not a lot of extra applications. A desktop environment, however also comes with a lot of extra applications.

The major difference between GNOME and KDE are probably the GUI Toolkits that are used (Application Programming Interfaces used to build Graphical User Interfaces). KDE uses QT and GNOME uses GTK+. Also the programming languages used for both are different:
KDE is written in C++ and Gnome in C.

On the non technical side both also have different approaches when it comes to usability. KDE acts a bit like a windows environment (but it is a lot more powerful then a windows environment) and gnome has kind of it's own philosophy about usability. They just hide as much Advanced options as possible and create seperate applications for different tasks. In KDE most parts are more integrated with each other. So you will be able to display pdf's in konqueror, but not in nautilus (Gnome file manager).

Combinations of both desktops are possible, although I would not recommend it, since I had some issues with that in the past. But that was with a different distribution. Probably pardus won't have these issues. What you can always do is combine the best of both worlds, use the desktop environment you like most and then install (if you have any) the applications from the other one if you like those better then the ones you already have.

Ben

Hey,

I'm on pardus now and found that you should also be able to access cups through the web interface (wasn't on pardus when writing my last post, so wasn't sure if it was possible). So what you could try is sending a print job to the printer, then open a browser and type :

Code:
localhost:631


in the adress bar. Then click the printer tab and see if it gives any errors there. That's probably the easiest way to check if any problems occur.

Hey,

There is a kde software package that's especially being made for webdesign. Just install the kdewebdev package. It will install quanta plus which has wysiwyg support and good coding support (syntax highlighting and great code-completion that is somehow quite intelligent). It also has php support and supports php debugging.

Another package you could try is eclipse and the phpclipse plugin. But that could also be overkill.

Regards,

Ben

ps. You can find more about quanta here:

36  Assistance / Hardware / usb keybord on: March 29, 2007, 02:05:21 AM
Hey,

To see if this is really a grub problem have a look at the keyboard leds, if it is a grub problem they should not shine when grub is loaded. Or you should not be able to activate them when you hit caps lock.

I just checked your kernel parameters with the following documentation on the dutch pardus wiki, and didn't see any strange parameters:

http://wiki.pardus-linux.nl/index.php/Nl/GRUB

So I think zloby is right, especially because he had the same problem with his motherboard.

37  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Quickpar - Need some help with the cmdline on: March 29, 2007, 01:35:57 AM
Hey,

The problem you have here is that you are trying to use a kio slave on the commandline. That's simply not possible since kio is a kde technology that only works in konqueror (this url would also not work in firefox, since it doesn't recognize the media:/ part).

The way you can solve this is by entering the direct path to the mountpoint where the sdg1 device is mounted to do this use the following command:

Code:
par2repair domino.par2 /media/sdg1/downloads/studentpostdomino


To be sure this command works, make sure the output of the pwd command is the same as the directory where the domino.par2 file is located.

38  Assistance / Hardware / usb drive on: March 29, 2007, 01:27:46 AM
Hey,

It's not possible that the usbdrive is still mounted in linux, when you are on windows. Since everytime you shutdown linux the usbdrive will also be unmounted. To see if this is not a usbdrive problem, I would like to know if you are able to use the usbdrive on some other computer or some other operating system (you could try accessing the usbdrive from one of your livecd's).

If that works (accessing it from another OS or PC), it's probably not a problem with the usbdrive but a windows problem. Some other thing I'm thinking of is that you somehow partitioned the usbdrive, and because of that you can't read the files on windows but you can on linux. But this last suggestion is very unlikely since windows would probably detect the drive, but would not be able to read and suggest you format it to a file system it can read.

Ben

Hey,

Just did a little research on this printer and found that it is only supported by the foo2zjs driver. So what you could do is check if this package is installed. You can do that using pisi. Here are some steps:

1. Start pisi (the cat icon in your system tray)
2. Then go to the installed packages tab
3. search for the foo2zjs package.

If it doesn't find the package it is probably not installed. So to see if it's available, look in the available packages part.

If it's not available there eiter, you should add the svn repository, since it's probably available there. To add the repository to your repository list, do the following:

1. open a terminal (konsole for example)
2. enter the following command:

Code:
sudo pisi ar contrib http://svn.pardus.org.tr/contrib/pisi-index.xml.bz2 -y


3. Then enter the following command, to install foo2zjs:

Code:
sudo pisi em foo2zjs


Now reconfigure your printer to use the foo2zjs driver. You can do that using tasma.

Ben

hey,

According to this thread :

http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/viewtopic.php?p=1486&sid=5a7dcf5bca4a0bbd4077a3cc931ee3f3

It hasn't been added yet. You could just enter a bug report on the pardus bugzilla since I could not find it there yet.

41  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Broke my install on: March 28, 2007, 14:35:30 PM
Hey,

Probably the best solution for this is to create a backup using the pardus livecd (you can access your partitions from the livecd) and then re-install pardus and upgrade again, or just download pardus 2007.1 and install that one instead.

Maybe this thought is rather simple, but you could replace or add a rating system to the client, so people can rate their hardware. Also, if you want to buy new hardware you will probably base (=baseren, weet niet of dit een goede engelse zin is) your choice on experiences from others who already own the piece of hardware you are going to buy, so what I'm trying to say is that when this database fills up you will have some kind reference when you have to buy new hardware.

I will send you a simple mockup of what I mean, since the image adder doesn't support pdf.

43  Assistance / Bugs / Lost wireless connection after upgrade on: March 18, 2007, 22:33:12 PM
By posting these iwlist scan reports, it could be possible that you just discovered the problem all by yourself, since the group ciphers differ, and if sidux does connect it could mean that pardus chooses the wrong cipher when you are trying to access it from your user account  (probably you already configured your user account before the upgrade and after the upgrade you configured the root account) since it was already configured.

Something you could try is creating a new user and try to connect from that user account. If I'm right (not very sure about this) then you should be able to connect from your new account.

If I'm wrong it could be something with the user groups. Try looking if the boxes for pnp, pnpadmin and wheel are checked.

Ben
44  Assistance / Bugs / Problem accessing Windows partition since upgrade to 2007.1 on: March 18, 2007, 22:20:31 PM
as far as i know it's still quite experimental and doesn't work completely, here's a quote from a comment on tweakers.net when the 2.6.15 kernel was released (directly quoted from the changelog of the kernel:

Quote
NTFS write support: NTFS finally implements write support so "vim /ntfs/foo.txt" works. You can write(2) to a file even beyond the end of the existing file. Resident non-resident files and are supported. Sparse files can also be written and holes will be filed appropriately. truncate(2), ftruncate(2) and open(2) with O_TRUNC flag also works. There're some limitations with heavily fragmented files which you won't be allowed to change. Also, notice that creation/deletion of files and directories is still not supported and mmap(2) based writes is still not complete

Or you should develop some kind client that detects which hardware is present and if there are any comments from the user. Then when all hardware is detected and all comments are placed it sends its data to an online hardware database. Then you write a php frontend to access all the hardware compatibility info.

The client which I'm talking about can probably be written in python. The only problem is that I know some python basics but not enough to write such a client. Maybe one of the devs could help, since it could benefit the community as a whole.

Another advantage (I just came up with this one) of this method is that you make it impossible for spammers to abuse the input system, since they are not able to post.

Regards,

Ben

ps. I know Ubuntu allready has such a client, although the php frontend part is a new idea.
