  1. Hi there, My linux box seems to have great difficulty in "multitasking" programs that use the sound card. The sound card can only play ONE program at a time. So, i'm sequencing in Rosegarden, and playing back my composition. I've finished from Rosegarden and I exit the program and JACK. Then I realised that GAIM was running, and then all of a sudden, I receive a stream of sounds of sent messages, received messages, people logging on/off, which were supposed to play at the time that they happened, but didn't because of Rosegarden - it's as if they enter some sort of queue and when I quit rosegarden, the doors just open and they all come flooding in!!! Any suggestions? Thanks!
  2. Update: It's strange, but a reboot solved the problem.

    Iphitus will always prove me wrong! ah well, sorry about the photos, mate!

    gdesklets

    I'm having exactly the same problem. gDesklets just won't work. It'll never work on Mandrake. The amount of dependancies it has hits the roof, and half of them are incompatible with Mandrake 10.1 unless you pull the system apart and try again! Even installing an old version didn't work, let alone the one included on the Mandrake DVD. I guess it's because Mandrake is a very "KDE-centred" version of Linux - I've heard that it has more success on more "GNOME-centred" versions like Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, etc.

    File recovery?

    I've never heard of that file system before, lol, but I've done some research and I've found a list of instructions - maybe this should help. It's important that you haven't done very much on this partition, as the data could have been overwritten. 1. Once you realize that you've lost data, don't do anything else on that partition - you may cause that data to be overwritten by new data. 2. Unmount that partition. e.g., umount /home 3. Find out what actual device this partition refers to. You can usually get this information from the file /etc/fstab. We'll assume here that the device is /dev/hda3. 4. Run the command: reiserfsck --rebuild-tree -S -l /root/recovery.log /dev/hda3 You need to be root to do this. Read the reiserfsck man page for what these options do and for more options. Some interesting options are '--rebuild-sb, --check'. After the command finishes, which might be a long time for a big partition, you can take a look at the logfile /root/recovery.log if you wish. 5. Mount your partition: mount /home 6. Look for the lost+found directory in the root of the partition. Here, that would be: /home/lost+found 7. This directory contains all the files that could be recovered. Unfortunately, the filenames are not preserved for a lot of files. You'll find some sub-directories - filenames withing those are preserved! 8. Look through the files and copy back what you need.

Here is the output: [naim@localhost naim]$ su Password: [root@localhost naim]# evolution (evolution:31726): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed. asked to activate component_id `OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Addressbook_Component:2.0' addressbook_migrate (0.0.0) account gui setup checking writable option 'auth' perms=00000040 checking writable option 'use_ssl' perms=00000010 checking writable option 'auth' perms=00000040 checking writable option 'use_ssl' perms=00000010 SCIM: im_module_init Launching a SCIM daemon with Socket FrontEnd...

  7. can you give me more detials about your theme? i like it a lot. there is mine : <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Sure, The CONTROLS theme is "gX", The ICONS theme is "Excuisite", and The WINDOW BORDER is "Simple" (which is already included). "gX" and "Excuisite" can be found in www.gnome-look.org. The FONTS are the ARTWIZ FONTS (http://artwizaleczapka.sourceforge.net/). For the Application Font and the Desktop Font, I used "CLEAN", and for the Title Bar font, I used "SNAP". Any problems, just post!

    File recovery?

    My mistake, that's if you want to undelete files on a non-ext2 partition. I'm assuming your partition that the photos were deleted on is an ext2 (to find out, type "mount | column -t", find the partition that the photos were saved on, and check the file system that it is). Try the program "recover": http://recover.sourceforge.net Here's how it works: If that fails, or your file system is not ext2, then you can try two options: 1. Provided that your partition is ext3, you can unmount the partition, and mount it as ext2, hence (in this example, I'm going to use hda5, which is my home folder, as the partition that the file was stored on): # umount /dev/hda5 # mount -t ext2 /dev/hda5 /home/naim # recover (you can check the syntax yourself, here) # umount /dev/hda5 # mount -t ext3 /dev/hda5 /home/naim However, file recovery is rather difficult on an ext3 file system, as: 2. If that fails, you can use grep. However, it only *really* works on text files, but you can give it a try and hope for the best!
  9. This may sound like a noobish question, but Evolution won't start. It just sits in the taskbar, saying "Starting Evolution", for about a minute, and then it disappears. I tried starting it from a console window. This was the output. [naim@localhost naim] evolution _ After one minute: [naim@localhost naim] evolution _ After two minutes: [naim@localhost naim] evolution _ After ten minutes: [naim@localhost naim] evolution _ Any ideas?

    File recovery?

    I believe (although I may be mistaken) that to recover files on UNIX systems, use the following command: grep -a -B[size before] -A[size after] 'text' /dev/[your_partition] For more information, see recover.sourceforge.net. Hope this helps :)
  11. Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, playing the MIDI file without JACK makes the MIDI sound rather inferior, as it uses the default MIDI set of instruments, not the soundfont I used for developing the MIDI with rosegarden. The soundfont used made the instruments sound very authentic (although I am perfect pitched, and it's annoying because in actual fact, the notes sound one tone higher than what they should be - playing an A would sound like a B, a B like a C# and so on :D). Is there any way to change this default set of instruments into the much nicer sounding soundfont that I used with rosegarden? Thanks!
  12. MIDIs play in Timidity as long as JACK is not running, and has not been started in the session. If JACK is running, MIDI's don't play. In fact, nothing plays. Even after I shut down JACK and QSynth etc, I have to log out then in again to listen to my music on XMMS again. As long as JACK is running (which is required for Rosegarden), Audacity won't work properly. It's a catch 22 situation!

  16. Hi again, I was just wondering, is it possible to export Rosegarden compositions to MP3 or WAVE? I'm trying to export them to MIDI with no success. I am trying to play back the exported MIDI files, however in Timidity++, they either fail to play, or they play sounding nothing like how it was composed (in terms of the soundfont used). Is there a way to get the MIDI file to play using the soundfont used to compose it? If not, is there a way that I can record the audio out of the computer by use of a program, and save that as an MP3/WAVE so that it sounds exactly like how it was composed? Thanks in advance, Naim

    Xorg transparency

    I see... Well, on the contrary, I have LOTS of self-compiled, non-mdk versions of programs lol, so clean install will be the best way to go. Thanks very much for the advice!

    Xorg transparency

    It seems so much easier just to go ahead and install 10.2. I don't think I'll bother with it on 10.1 now! Just a question, after upgrading to 10.2, would it "upgrade" or will it install the system from scratch? As in, would I lose my personal settings and my documents?

I should have removed the existing installation of Xorg before building and installing this newer one. Uninstalling Xorg 6.7.0 would mean that I'd lose a LOT of applications. It'd also mean that I'd have to install EVERYTHING from scratch, as all programs with a GUI depend on the X window system!

  24. Hi there, I'm not sure this question goes under hardware or software but I'll ask it anyway. I'm having trouble getting sounds to play in Rosegarden. MIDIs CAN play on my system, as Timidity++ works like a charm. However, when I try to create MIDIs in Rosegarden, I hear no sounds, even when the program is playing through the composition. I am using an Intel sound card, Mandrake 10.1 under GNOME (with Rosegarden as a KDE app), Kernel 2.6.8. Any ideas?
