1  Assistance / Software / xfce in - fonts out on: March 18, 2008, 20:41:06 PM
I recently installed xfce WM following the CL instructions here:

http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Xfce4#Xfce4

Everything seemed to go fine - except when I booted into my new xfce WM and discovered that there were no fonts, just small rectangular boxes where letters shoild be.

What's worse is now some of the applications on the KDE has also lost fonts and just show indcipherable little boxes.

Any ideas as to what went wrong?

Any ideas as how to fix it?

regrads,

For future reference:

The problem turned out to be the battery - once removed the laptop returned to proper functioning.

I've had Pardus installed on my Acer 3003 laptop without problem for some time - but recently a window entitled Kwrite pops up with the following text:

Pardus has also been acting oddly with missing stuff and froze once.

I suspect that it is telling me that my Hard Drive has errors and is going down. (The WinXP OS on this laptop has also been behaving oddy and freezing up for no apparent reason.)

Just wondering - does anyone else have an alternative interpretation of the syslogs above?

4  General / Wish list / Kompozer on: July 13, 2007, 13:35:24 PM
It would be great if the website creator/editor NVU currently in the repository was replaced with Kompozer.

The NVU project closed some time ago and its successor, Kompozer, is its current and less buggy version.

Keeping up with the Joneses!
5  Assistance / Bugs / Re: bootloader waits after upgrade on: July 13, 2007, 13:28:56 PM
When I booted up this morning the usual configuration of a 5 second wait was back in working order.

My conclusion: This is an unstable bug and can't be relied on for consistency.

P.S. Thanks for the fix it tips above but I already knew how do it - I just posted it as a bug report rather than a "I need help" request.
6  Assistance / Bugs / bootloader waits after upgrade on: July 13, 2007, 00:39:28 AM
I did a 'sudo pisi up' upgrade to 2007.2 yesterday and so far everything seems ok - although I haven't tested too much, (like the new desktop effects).

One minor annoyance I have noticed is the bootloader. It used to countdown 5 or so seconds and then start booting. Now it just sits there and waits till I press Enter.

Not a big deal, granted, but I suspect this effect of upgrading was unintended.
7  General / The Pub / hardware requiremnets for Pardus and other Linux OSs on: July 12, 2007, 00:24:31 AM
I run a computer repair shop in Wales and as part of our work we refurbish and sell lots of older computers donated by schools and such. We usually install Linux (for reasons of stability, cost, and freedom) on these computers. The type of Linux depends on the hardware.

As a rule of thumb, we wouldn't install Pardus on anything less than a 750 Mhz processor and 256 RAM. It does work on lesser hardware but performance suffers.

I sold a Pardus installed computer to a chap last month. He came back a couple of days later and I asked him how he was enjoying Pardus. He just said he installed Win XP over it without even giving it a try! Oh well - we're creatures of habit I guess.

The majority of computers we refurbish are Pentium 3 - 500Mhz (or Celeron - 400Mhz) with 128 - 190 RAM. We used to install Vector 5.8 Std. on these types but have recently switched to Puppy because of the excellent wizards that help people to configure their computer with relative ease.

Pardus is now my main OS at home and at work. Before that I was using LinuxMint - an Ubuntu-based operating system designed by a Frenchman living in Ireland. It's an excellent distro but Pardus edged it out due to its better file mounting facilities and easy to configure KDE desktop.

That's my story in a nutshell. I'd be interested to hear other experiences of 1. Pardus on various hardware setups and 2. other Linux distros on old hardware.
8  Assistance / News & Announcements / Re: Pardus 2007.2 final is out on: July 11, 2007, 22:32:52 PM
Is there any difference / advantage to downloading and installing 2007.2 as opposed to upgrading all packages via PISI? Does anyone know?
9  General / The Pub / the threat of popularity on: July 06, 2007, 12:30:19 PM
I've read lots of posts from Linux/open source advocates that look forward to Great Revolution (i.e the mass conversion to open source software throughout the world once its benefits are realised).

Of course it's human nature to desire popularity. There's strength and security in numbers - right?

But does this apply to computer operating systems that are increasingly intergrated into the Internet?

Or would mass coversion to Linux OSs spell the end of the relatively secure and uncluttered internet experience?

I think it would.

When the majority of surfers / consumers are running Linux - how long before all the advertising cookies, spyware, malicious viruses, etc. would also switch to target Linux? It wouldn't take too long I figure.

The great feature about Linux at present is that it tramples all through this Internet garbage largely unfettered. If Linux were to become the main operating system of the planet (like MS is now) our holiday would soon be over.

So I'm not looking towards the Great Software Revolution - I dread it.

How about you?
10  Assistance / News & Announcements / Re: Beta testers needed for Pardus 2007.2 (beta) on: July 02, 2007, 11:13:32 AM
After upgrading all packages (presumably mirroring a beta2 installation?) i found that the mplayer firefox plugin would no longer play streaming video from my prefered news channel, http://www.russiatoday.ru/

But i's easy to fix. Right click on the mplayer plugin window, select 'configure', select the dropdown menu on 'Video Output', select 'x11', select 'OK', close plugin window, restart.

Works like it should again.
11  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: How can I install LImewire in Pardus? on: July 01, 2007, 23:44:01 PM
Here's what works for me:

Open the Konsole (Pardus>Programs>Sysytem>Konsole) and type (or copy/paste):

sudo pisi it http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/contrib-2007/limewire-4.12.6-2-2.pisi

Hit Enter and you will be asked for your password. Type it, hit Enter again, and  Limewire should be downloaded and installed. It can be found on the 'Internet' menu.
12  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Is this really the most popular English Pardus forum? on: June 16, 2007, 11:32:42 AM
I think the lack of activity on this forum is in part an indication of the lack of problems with this distribution. People usually only post when they have problems and are seeking a solution. Perhaps Pardus is too polished to generate alot of forum discussion.
13  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / which webcam works with Pardus? on: May 20, 2007, 22:11:18 PM
I'm thinking about buying a webcam - but only if it works with Pardus.

I live in the UK, if that makes any difference. (Probably not considering everything is made in China these days.)

So, has anyone had success with a webcam on Pardus? Which make/manufacteurer? Or which ones to avoid?

Thanks in anticipation,

Glasiad, Wales
14  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: permissions with usb flash stick on: May 20, 2007, 22:06:52 PM
I started this post because I couldn't get write permission for my usb flash stick.

I gave up and forgot about it.

I later used it without problem - same stick, same laptop. same Pardus.

I only remembered afterwards that I had a problem writing to it previously.

As far as I'm aware nothing changed and I don't have a clue as to why it just started co-operating with me.
15  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / permissions with usb flash stick on: April 15, 2007, 17:47:31 PM
For information:

The usb flash stick in question has a vfat file system.

My question is:

If Knoppix Live  and Wndows Xp can read and write to this usb flash stick without problem - why can't Pardus?

With regards to mounting and copying files from one partition to another on the hard disk, Pardus performs very well.
