  1. Where did you do that? Edit a file, or in mcc? I have the same problem.
  2. Thank you, I will when I get home. It looks like a know issue, and something I wasn't even looking at.
  3. Trying to set up to print off my home networked printer running on an XP box. This has always been a no brainer with MCC, but not 10.1 official. Searching the forums shows I'm not alone, but I've not stumbled accross the cure. Tips, hints, or links appreciated.
  4. Thanks, I was afraid of that. Oh well time to go shopping.
  5. My parts are finally wearing out on this 6yr old beauty of a desktop, and the CDROM doesn't always read files. (It's been cleaned with cdrom cleaner). So in the meantime I would like to make my CD-RW /dev/hdc the primary reading device so when I'm urpmi or Mandrake update and it asks to insert a cd, it defaults to the /dev/hdc. TIA
  6. Worked like a charm, thanks. :P
  7. Regardless of all the linux 'theology', any time a tool the caliber of 'YaST' goes GPL, everyone wins, IMHO.
  8. I found supermount more intuitive, or second nature like MS, I never had an issue, and really appreciated not having to mount things of a different gender.
  9. Ahhhh, control panel, now called "Configure Your Desktop", not to be confused with configuring your desktop from right clicking on the desktop and 'configure desktop'. Why would they take away the File Manager as super user??? I know it can be set up, just don't see the logic in that.
  10. Where is the File Manager- super user, and the KDE-Control Panel, these are missing from 9.2 menu items.
  11. Personally I am not impressed. This was an out the door fire sale release. First Mandrake since 7.1 that did not configure my canon bjc4100 during the install. After the first boot, KNotify caused a sig 11 segfault and messes with the aRts sound. WTF, only released 2 days and the update manager say's I need 270mb of updates. I'll be using something else for a while, I am so very dissapointed that beneath all the eye-candy they didn't build a solid foundation to work on, and I am not going to be a guinea pig for them. I bought 9 and 9.1 but I wouldn't part with any money for this release.
  12. Along those same lines, I used to be able to spend hours in the loacal Chapter's book stores looking for and purchasing Linux manuals and software. In the last 6-9 months, only M$ and Mac are on the shelves, nada linux, .... when I asked the store manager, he told me it was a chain wide descision to drop the linux line of products. I no longer buy anything from Chapter's or Indigo.
  13. Using a file manager as 'SU' browse to /usr/share/icons You will find all the iconsets you have installed. In each set there are a number of sizes. Each size then has a folder with 'APPS' In the "APPS" folder you will find the K icon listed as kmenu.png The xandros icon is called go.png. You can either rename the go.png to kmenu.png, or do like I do just deleate the kmenu.png icon completely. The go.png will then default to the start. Note you need to do this in each 16-22-32-48-64 size app folder. Thats the hard GUI way, someone may know a CLI faster way to replace them. HTH, have fun.
  14. Some of em, your gonna lose anyway, the rest of us just have fun with anything linux.
