  1. Thunderbird and Firefox got updated to 1.0.6 just after couple of days 1.0.5 release. Shouldn't they test the release of version 1.0.5 in the first place? [moved from Talk-Talk by spinynorman]
  2. Did you mean here? I have windows install in drive C. ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts Does the font look about right to you? To me it looks small.
  3. I use Agent Newsreader with Wine great but the only side effect is the font being crooked. How do I fix this. I installed bunch of windows font using Font Installer in Configuration-> KDE->System. I also configure to use 100DPI font as on this website instructions. What else can I do? [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  4. Here's my first snap shot on this forum. The taskbar looks like windows which I don't like. I need to do somthing about it.
  5. Thanks for the tip. Great that's what I want. It's not that i don't like Kwrite over Gedit. They all the same to me when it comes to editing. The beep is that Kwrite is a little annoying. Everytime I open a file, it opens up a window and checking somehing before it loads the acutall file. This bogs me down when I am in a little hurry. Besides, I type gedit command faster than I type kwrite. Hehehhe....
  6. I want to ask only a question: Did you run the script "install_browser_plugin" to install plugin for your browser that come with Acrobat7.0 which I believe it's located in /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/Browser folder by default installation of Acrobat? If your anwser is YES, that might be the problem you're experiencing. It happened to me before exactly what you described and i couldn't figured why. I don't know how many times I install and reinstall LE2005 in the past month, I tried Acrobat Reader 5 instead of 7. In version 5, there is no install_browser_plugin script so I had to do it myself by making link to the plugin in firefox folder and exporting path to acroread. Amazingly it works..... Since I do a lot of install and reinstall LE2005 in the past month, I had the oportunity to try one more time with Acobat 7.0 but this time I did exactly as what I have done with Reader5.0. And it works.
  7. I am running into the problem that I need some help to basically asfxload soundfont automatically every reboot. Everytime I restart the computer, I have to type manually asfxload soundfont.sf2 in the terminal so that Kmid can play midi file. Otherwise, it just won't play (can't hear sound) I have tried to put following lines asfxload -i asfxload soundfont.sf2 into ~/.bash_profile as instructed in one of the thread above as well as /etc/profile file but these just don't do well and seem not to load it automatically. I still have to type it in manually in the terminal. I keep my soundfont.sf2 in /usr/share/sounds/sf2 folder so that asfxload will automatically look into that directory. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  8. How do we make gedit instead of Kwrite default editor in KDE which associated with Konqeror?
  9. I want to install one of those bars just for easily access to commonly used links like firefox, mail program and media player, etc..... and remove kicker menu since I am bulding this system for public usage. I use KDE and LE2005 One more concern is that whether one of these bar will hog all resource of the system?
  10. Is the theme manager for KDE installed by default in LE2005? I try to look in the menu LookNFeel only to see "Style" Or is it hidden somewhere that we have to enable it for it to show? I'd like to try out KDE to see if I like it.
  11. Anyway, I changed back to snd-emu10k1 as the driver of my soundcard since it's the ALSA driver. What I selected before in my first post turned out to be that I am using OSS driver. Then based on the information on this page http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php?page=emu10k1 , I inserted couple of paramaters for my soundcard module configuration as folowing: extin: 0x0003 extout: 0x1f03 seq_port: 4 max_synth_voices: 64 mx_buffer_size: 128 As root, I type these lines in ternimal. Copy from http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-30963.html Honestly, I don't know what above lines means. If someone cares to explain, I am glad to hear. Then I continue the tips and trick using asfxload command to load the soundfont into memory. $ asfxload /opt/8MBGMSFX.SF2 It just works perfectly.
  12. I follow these thread to set up MIDI playable computer https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtopic=22604 and http://www.mandrivaclub.com/article.php?sid=979 In step one: I used harddrake to select emu10k1 as the driver for the card. Step 2: find/get the soundfond.sf2 online from Trachtman.net Step 3: Use the sfxload /path/tomysoundfont.sf2 returns What does this mean? Does this meant that I have no sequencer installed?

  13. You still do it couple of times if you document things. It's just that you don't have to go back online searching for solutions
  14. As I said before, I compile it from the souce and still somehow it doesn't solve the problem. Starting a program takes forever. You know what I mean. DragonMage, maybe it's just hardware problem conflict that causes the problems. When I compiled it from source, I installed both libgtk+ and it devel packages and start the program from command line. Anyway, I removed it completely from my computer with associated packages and libraries. I installed Beep Media Player (look and feel the same as XMMS, not to mention that it's even better in term of sound quality) Here are the packages that I install in order from contrib for Beep Media Player libid3_3.8_3-3.8.3-7mdk.i586 (from main) libbeep-media-player2-0.9.7-6mdk.i586 beep-media-player-0.9.7-6mdk.i586 beep-media-player-extra-plugins-0.2.2-2mdk.i586 beep-media-player-esd-0.9.7-6mdk.i586 Problems SOLVED. Thanks all. Marked the thread Solved - Artificial Intelligence
  15. It's wise and safe pratice to document everything you install, modify to system file. And back-up all the files you rpm onto difffernt partition thus saving you a lot of time later on when your system goes ballooning up. When I install a package or compile something from source. I document every procedure, what's first and what's next, and every notes associated with installtion. Then I save/backup everything onto different partition which is a FAT32 share partition between windows and linux. Just in case, I want to reinstalled Mandrake, I go back and repeat exactly what I have successfully done before without having going online searching for solutions. :-) Cheers
