Hello fellow Pardus users, I am new to Pardus and I must say, this is by far the best KDE Distro I have ever used. Thank you to all who played a part in creating such a magnificent OS for the general public to use.

I only have two problems:

1. I would like to see Xvidcam in the repos so I can record sections of my desktop without having to use recordmydesktop. From the looks of it, it seems Xvidcam was available in older versions of Pardus, just not 2011 yet. If someone could tell me how to install Xvidcap on Pardus or put it in the Repos I would be very grateful.

2. The other problem I have is with Alsamixer, for some reason, when I use TVTime, it resets my Line In settings to 30% every time I use it. I'll run TVtime and I always have to launch the terminal and run Alsamixer and adjust my line in volume in order to hear the sound... it never saves my settings.

Other than those two problems, the rest of the OS is absolutely perfect and you guys hold the title when it comes to other KDE Distros.

Thanks for hearing me out.

Oh God, you're right! It is Xvidcap... LOL!

I'm sorry, I meant to say Xvidcap. Yeah, It's not in the Repos, Xvid is, but not Xvidcap.  http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Xvidcap

From what I've read, Pardus 2009 had Xvidcap in the repos.


Thanks for the welcome and the correction, I don't know what I was thinking when I typed that.  Grin

Its some about it here:
http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=Xvidcap

But maybe you can write a request for Xvidcap for Pardus 2011 here:
http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/


It can speed up the process for it to be in the Pardus repo.

Thanks John!

John, I've been going around to all the Pardus reviews and have been spreading the good news about Pardus and I've seen your comments on almost every place I've posted. I'm the one in the comments trying to get people to switch from Mint to Pardus, 

I was a Loyal Linux Mint user for a few years now, but after discovering Pardus and giving it a try, I have completely fallen in love with it and I'll never use anything else... Pardus is superior to Mint and I'm trying to spread the word over at the Mint website too. There are a lot of Windows users who usually take their first plunge into Linux by using Linux Mint because it works out of the box and is easy to use.

But more and more people are starting to get frustrated with the instabilities of the OSs Mint is putting out and I think Pardus is the perfect Linux Distro to convert people from Windows to Linux. I've converted a few Mint Fans already and I swear as God as my Witness, this Distro will become a well known and highly respected Distro in the Linux community.

I'm just trying to say I've noticed you out there spreading the word and that I am joining the good fight! The Turks have something very special here and it should be a top Linux OS.

Yes I use Ubuntu from time to time to, tryed Mandriva, PcLinuxOs  and others to. But since I discovered Pardus 2008 by accident I like it best.
If they are able to fill up the repo in 2011 version with most of the popular programs and requests  I think it can be very popular.
And I hope it be a English version of this page to:
http://www.ozgurlukicin.com/


Then I see no reason why it would not one day be among the top ten distributons at Distrowatch list. Smiley

Progress report:
You can find and test the i686 version together with the build files at:
http://www.pardususer.de/index.php?action=repository&dir=/playground/atolboo/xvidcap

I get a successfulness "./configere" and "make" for the x86_64 version, but "sudo make install" ends (at this moment) with:
Quote
.
mkdir -p -- /var/pisi/xvidcap-1.1.7-1/install/usr/share/omf/xvidcap
for file in xvidcap-C.omf; do \
        /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./$file.out /var/pisi/xvidcap-1.1.7-1/install/usr/share/omf/xvidcap/$file; \
done
/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `./xvidcap-C.omf.out': No such file or directory
make[4]: *** [install-data-local-omf] Error 1
because the directory /usr/share/omf/xvidcap/ is empty.
Quote
ls -l /var/pisi/xvidcap-1.1.7-1/install/usr/share/omf/xvidcap
total 0
while the one from i686 shows:

ls -l /var/pisi/xvidcap-1.1.7-1/install/usr/share/omf/xvidcap

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 842 Feb 25 21:04 xvidcap-it.omf
And this is still a mystery for me

I just tested it and it works great, but it wont record in WMV, MP4 or DivX. It takes pictures of each frame and stores them in the Document folder.

Is there a way to add some video Codecs to the options so I can records videos in a video format?

If not, that's OK, I appreciate your work and I thank you for the speedy response!

Thanks again my friend!

Not really a solution, but transcode can take a sequence of images and turn them into a video. I use it to make movies from the outputs of data display and modelling tools where I can save each frame as a PNG or JPEG. One thing to note is that I've generally found that the deprecated imlist format where the input file is a text file with a list of the images works better than the recommended im format.

Thanks James, but I guess I'll just have to wait until the Pardus team adds it to the default Repo.
