166  Assistance / Laptop / Re: Which laptop to buy? on: May 11, 2008, 23:19:50 PM
Hi azra,

HP Pavilion dv6820 is very similar to dv6650eg. I Think Pardus will work on it too, like my one.

My sister is using dv6010ea, where Pardus 2007.3 supports 100% the hardware of this laptop, but on my laptop Pardus does not support all. ACPI Buttons (the blue multimedia keys -> HP QuickPlay Keys between display and keyboard) and currently brightness control on Pardus 2007.3:

In the german PCLinuxOS Forum a member of our Core Team solved this problem on his Acer Laptop by some modifications and shell scripts ...

So I think it should be possible on HP Laptops too. I'm going to try the same method on my laptop with Pardus. If it does, than I'll let you know about that.

I hope that theses problems will be solved in Pardus 2008 - I love Pardus Linux (and of course honey PCLinuxOS)  Roll Eyes

Enjoy your new Laptop  Grin

With best regards
167  Assistance / Bugs / Re: Not a bug (i think ......) kernel update and GRUB issue on: May 08, 2008, 22:37:58 PM
It's a really nice feature that Pardus offers to its users. It's not a bug, really Smiley When you update your kernel, say different version, you have to update your grub entry to use the latest kernel. Pardus automates it, after updating kernel, new kernel entry is automatically added to grub.

Thats true, other modern Linux operating systems like PCLinuxOS, xbuntu's, Suse etc. does it too. You can trust them, what Eren.Turkay says - it can not be a bug.

Skype 2 works well - thank you very much my friend  Wink Grin

I built a PiSi from SVN few minutes ago a PiSi Package, which is compatible with Pardus 2007.3 (because GLIC troubles ...):

Skype, Version for Pardus Linux 2007.3
MD5-Checksum: b8355c4b662670b49df965479767f33a
File size: 14,3 MB

This Version fixes also the fail command for KDE menu entries  (LD_PRELOAD=/opt/libstdc/libstdc++.so.6.0.10 skype) ... Smiley

Hi jnmbk,

many thanks for the reply. I'm going to try this command today night and let you know how it do ...  Smiley

171  Assistance / Laptop / Re: Brightness change on Pardus 2007.3 on: May 06, 2008, 00:22:00 AM
Temporally I change the brightness of the notebook  display with this way:

First step 1.) (for all these commands you need root privileges)
Look with:
cat /proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCD/brightness
for the available steps for your Display.

You should get an output like this:
grki-prds grki # cat /proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCD/brightness
levels:  95 43 20 24 28 32 37 43 50 59 69 81 95
current: 0

From "current: 0" you can see the actual value for the brightness.
And from "levels:  95 ........" you can see the possible/compatible values.

Second Step 2.)
Now you should test any value with this command:
echo "n" > /proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCD/brightness

The letter n stands for the value, in example with the number 69 :
echo "69" > /proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCD/brightness

With this way you can control the brightness of HP Pavilion notebooks of dv6000 series. I think it should also work with other notebooks too Smiley



This method works, but of course, it's not a permanent solution: reboot and it goes away.

Currently I'm "coding" for an elegant solution with a shell script in combination with "KlcdDimmer". (-> it is a KDE kicker applet, you can install "KlcdDimmer" with the package manager)  Roll Eyes  Wink

Hi @all,

I allready sent a bug report for my HP Pavilion Notebook, with same troubles:

173  General / Wish list / Re: why I never receive answer to my request? on: April 30, 2008, 20:36:26 PM
It's been a long time but the answer is:
Run skype from KDE menu, don't try on console.

Can you show me the difference ?

Because there are the same commands:
grki@grki-prds ~ $ skype
skype: /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.6/libstdc++.so.6: version `CXXABI_1.3.1' not found (required by skype)
skype: /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.6/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.4' not found (required by skype)
grki@grki-prds ~ $

Hi Andreas - fine to meet you here  Cheesy

Wich PCLinuxOS Version did you tried ?
There are actually tow kinds of PCLinuxOS:
The PCLinuxOS "MiniMe" - it is a "very slow down" version, with less packages - only for experienced users.
And the original PCLinuxOS 2007 - it should have more applications (for desktop users ...)

But you can also get more packages, if you make an update of the packages-list via synaptic or "apt-get update" Wink

I am a German and can speak and write English a little bit. Wink

With LinuxFantatic I have a good contact. Smiley
Yes that's true. I am an "austrian-turkisch-german" and can speak and write English too  Roll Eyes  Grin

175  Assistance / Software / [solved] Empty folder list in KMail on: April 23, 2008, 00:49:25 AM
Hi altogether  Cheesy

I solved the problem. If you activate the option for the search-field (see Screenshot) in the KMail settings dialog, than the folder icons and texts will be displayed. It's a strange method, but I'm very happy about that  Grin

With best regards

KMail is quite a good e-mail client Smiley

I don't know why you get blank folder but it may be caused by your old configuration. I think you copied your home directory from PCLinuxOS to Pardus?

Did you try to remove these folders?

Btw, is your system up-to-date?

Hi Eren,

many thanks for your reply.

Since I installed Pardus, I'm using by default an new account with new user folder in /home/ . There are also no settings form an older System ... and I also do not use the same user folder from the PCLinuxOS account (I use PCLinuxOS currently only in VirtualBox ...)
Pardus is already up to date.

I think people should use what they want. After ~5 years of experiences with GNU Linux and it's distributions, I have got also my own reasons therefore, why I'm using KDE applikations like KMail instead of Mozilla Thunderbird Wink

And I'm also not the same meaning, that PCLinuxOS is bad. I like both, PCLinuxOS and Pardus (!)
In the German PCLinuxOS community (www.pclinuxos.de) I moderate the community forum and his Wiki. I made also lots of art works for this distribution:
177  Assistance / Software / [solved] Empty folder list in KMail on: April 22, 2008, 01:40:54 AM
Hello altogether,

I'm using Pardus since ~ two weeks. It is a very good Linux System, I'm very impressed about Pardus Linux.
Currently it is my productively main OS, but I'm also using my old Linux "PCLinuxOS" (www.pclinuxos.de) too - I like both.

KMail is my main E-Mail client, but at the moment I have got trouble with the folder-list in the KMail window (see screenshot).
I tried to reinstall the "kdepim" package (for kmail, kontact, and so on ...), but I can't find any package named "kdepim" or "kde-pim".

Does someone have any idea, how to solve it?

With best regards
