  1. Environment variables won't be called by cron. You need to set the PATH variable or use the full path to the binary like so: 30 3 * * * /bin/sh /mail/mailbox.size.check.sh
  2. I had a problem where I couldn't see the gradient previews in Gimp 2.6.8 on Mandriva 2010.1, don't know about printing. Finished up downgrading my libcairo2 package to resolve the issue (see below for my notes), maybe could resolve your issue too. There is a bug logged for Ubuntu - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gimp/+bug/636329. GIMP Gradient problem (ISO file mounted to /mnt/iso01) Need to downgrade libcairo2 package to libcairo2-1.9.6-3mdv2010.1 $ su # rpm -qa | grep -i libcairo libcairo2-1.9.14-0.2mdv2010.1 # rpm -hiv --oldpackage --replacefiles /mnt/iso01/i586/media/main/libcairo2-1.9.6-3mdv2010.1.i586.rpm # urpme libcairo2-1.9.14-0.2mdv2010.1 # rpm -qa | grep -i libcairo libcairo2-1.9.6-3mdv2010.1
  3. OK, so try removing the XCRYPT font and see how you go... EDIT: Be sure to check the other font directories under /usr/share/fonts for XCRYPT and remove them as well. $ su # mv /usr/share/fonts/drakfont/Type1/XCRYPT* /tmp # mkfontscale /usr/share/fonts/drakfont/* # mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/drakfont/*
  4. I had this problem recently. It started just after I had installed a whole bunch of new fonts. I managed to resolve it, by removing the offending font and reloading the font cache. Here are some notes I made: If OpenOffice doesn't start open a terminal session and $ openoffice.org3 -writer %U "** (soffice:6473): WARNING **: unable to get gail version number" $ strace -f -o /home/paul/openoffice.log openoffice.org3 -writer %U $ cat openoffice.log | grep "Segmentation fault" OR $ gedit openoffice.log ...and search for string "Segmentation fault" and remove offending font listed above $ su $ rm /usr/share/fonts/drakfont/ttf/StarTrekferengi* $ rm /usr/share/fonts/drakfont/Type1/StarTrekferengi* $ mkfontscale /usr/share/fonts/drakfont/* $ mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/drakfont/* Logoff/logon

    I have used Handbrake in the past: http://handbrake.fr/ http://www.linuxtech.net/downloads/handbrake_mandriva_rpm.html It looks as if OpenShot will be packaged for 2010.1: http://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=openshot
  6. You didn't list the command you used, but this should do the trick: $ su $ urpmi.addmedia --distrib --mirrorlist '$MIRRORLIST' $ urpmi.addmedia --distrib --mirrorlist 'http://plf.zarb.org/mirrors/$RELEASE.$ARCH.list'
  7. Installed it last night. I like it, very good. Importantly for me it also resolved this bug
  8. No, I haven't found a solution for that. Once I have managed to configure pSX, via the flickering menu, I have created individual launchers to launch my games in full-screen so I avoid it. Right-click an empty space on your desktop and select Create Launcher and use the following string in the Command field. /usr/lib/pSX/pSX -f /games/psx_images/VAGRANT_STORY.mdf For all the switches available: [lardy@spring2009 ~]$ /usr/lib/pSX/pSX -h
  9. Open Terminal and run the command to launch pSX to provide you with more information on the fault. For me this is: [lardy@spring2009 ~]$ /usr/lib/pSX/pSX [src/linux/sound.cpp, line 215]: 'snd_pcm_hw_params_set_access(pcm_handle,hwparams,SND_PCM_ACCESS_MMAP_INTERLE AVED)' returned 'Invalid argument' The solution is to disable Pulseaudio. See pSX forum thread: http://psxemulator.proboards.com/index.cgi...amp;thread=2985
  10. Here's a workaround: $ vim ~/.bash_profile # Configure left-hand mouse due to Gnome bug xmodmap -e "pointer = 3 2 1"
  11. When I installed 2008.1 I was getting a similar prompt asking for my SSH passphrase when I logged onto KDE and when I lauched Konsole. My resolution with some help from the alt.os.linux.mandriva newsgroup was to rename the ~/.keychain folder. I eventually deleted it after not encountering any issues with this resolution.
