      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  1. Mouse Problems in 2010.1

    Kieth, Nothing sounds dumb ( so thanks for the post) -- and yes, I did try MCC configuration.
  2. Mouse Problems in 2010.1

    No takers??
  3. Hi, I am trying to use my floppy drive (haven't done that in nearly a decade) so I can burn a new BIOS for an older computer (not mine). I need to burn this out of WinXP, which I am running in Virtualbox. WinXP doesn't see floppies when they are inserted and I have no signs of one within 2010.1. What am I missing? Any hints would be appreciated. nasa01 [moved from Installing Mandriva by spinynorman]
  4. Mouse Problems in 2010.1

    Hi, I recently updated to 2010.1 and an having a couple of issues. For this issue, right mouse clicks don't bring up the menu as it had with 2010. Additionally, Virtualbox doesn't see right-clicks either (WinXP). However, I can paste text with the right button (something that used my middle button before). The mouse is a Logitech MX Laser. It has *20* buttons. Could anyone help me fix this (in the most approved manner). I would like to keep my buttons all working (scroll in firefox for example). Here's what is in the X Log (related to the mouse): (II) config/hal: Adding input device Logitech USB RECEIVER (**) Logitech USB RECEIVER: always reports core events (**) Logitech USB RECEIVER: Device: "/dev/input/event1" (II) Logitech USB RECEIVER: Found 20 mouse buttons (II) Logitech USB RECEIVER: Found scroll wheel(s) (II) Logitech USB RECEIVER: Found relative axes (II) Logitech USB RECEIVER: Found x and y relative axes (II) Logitech USB RECEIVER: Configuring as mouse (**) Logitech USB RECEIVER: YAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5 (**) Logitech USB RECEIVER: EmulateWheelButton: 4, EmulateWheelInertia: 10, EmulateWheelTimeout: 200 (II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Logitech USB RECEIVER" (type: MOUSE) (**) Logitech USB RECEIVER: (accel) keeping acceleration scheme 1 (**) Logitech USB RECEIVER: (accel) acceleration profile 0 (II) Logitech USB RECEIVER: initialized for relative axes.

  5. Pulseaudio and/or Alsa Issues [solved]

    Turning of Pulseaudio seems to have fixed the issues... Hope it sticks!
  6. I have been having this sound problem for quite a while, and was hoping I can get some assistance with it.... A generic description of my problem is best given by an example: Start an audio file with mplayer (via a terminal) works fine for 15 min then get static. Kill mplayer and restart the song, get static right a way. Try and kill pulseaudio with "pulseaudio --kill", no good... Try it again and follow up with "pulseaudio --start", still no good. Try one more time... Bingo sound back on. I run into this several times a day.... Log messages look like the following: Jan 19 21:50:06 localhost pulseaudio[8627]: alsa-sink.c: ALSA woke us up to write new data to the device, but there was actually nothing to write! Jan 19 21:50:06 localhost pulseaudio[8627]: alsa-sink.c: Most likely this is a bug in the ALSA driver 'snd_hda_intel'. Please report this issue to the ALSA developers. Jan 19 21:50:06 localhost pulseaudio[8627]: alsa-sink.c: We were woken up with POLLOUT set -- however a subsequent snd_pcm_avail() returned 0 or another value < min_avail. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
  7. Thanks Guys, That's exactly what I was looking for. Appreciate the help Nasa
  8. Hi, I have been looking all over the place (I most likely just missed it), it seems like a simple thing -- I would like to start a full screen application as soon as the WM finishes loading up. I realize with a regular app you can use 'remember' settings to get the app to start -- but how do you do this for a full screen app. I wish to do this in E16, but kde will do just as well. I am not shy about editing config files, if that is necessary. I appreciate any hints I can get. Thanks Nasa
