  1. Ta for the likely explanation. I'll go xchat, used it before so no issues there.
  2. Just tried to add an IRC account to Kopete but there doesn't seem to be any mention of IRC in the Kopete I'm using. Kopete 0.60.3 Any ideas?
  3. Have a quick install of task-xfce and see if it asks you. If it doesn't make a difference then Mandriva needs to hook it out of the process.
  4. It was installed from a cover CD, no longer have it so no idea whether it was free or one. However, rpmdrake asks this question on a number of meta packages during installation. I would've thought that rpmdrake would've been able to sniff it out without asking questions which could throw people. Someone not familiar with Linux/Mandriva may simply walk away rather than take the risk of choosing the wrong answer with unknown consequences.
  5. Ta for reply but it's KDE 4 and there doesn't seem to be a Mandriva branded launcher, just KDE or Lancelot.
  6. Wanting to install some software and it's asking me to select which version I'm using, sort of thing? Flash One Free Powerpack Can't remember what I've installed except that it was off Linuxformat uk. Any ideas how to work out which version? Ta
  7. Which is what I have. Odd how so different people's instalations are regarding kde4.
  8. Foxmarks add on has the ability to sync passwords across installations. May be possible across profiles?
  9. Have always set my encryption on my router to WEP cos it works. But with the state of wifi connectivity on linux today should I be looking at something else? My router has the option of: None WEP WPA-PSK [TKIP] WPA2-PSK [AES] WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] Any I should be looking at? Ta [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  10. Interesting. I've tried both loced and unlockd widgets setting and the + sign on the dragged icon disppears when it gets over the toolbar. Do you have the right-click add to desktop option in lancelot?
  11. I was using lancelot and that doesn't provide the option. Added the mandriva menu and I can just drag and drop so problem solved. Cheers
  12. Anyone remind me how to do it? Managed to figure it on a previous installation but I've not figured it out this time. Ta [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  13. Just to add some info which may be useful. Mandriva with KDE4 and to some extent XFCE has been leading to overheating and shutdown on my laptop. Gnome was the least likely of the desktops to cause this issue. I have also noticed it with gOS, Dreamlinux, OpenGEU and other distros. One thing they all had in common was the use of the ati graphics driver. This driver has come on in leaps and bounds recently and allowed me to operate compiz and all that flashy stuff without breaking. What I did today was to do a fresh install of Mandriva One 2009 and use the fglrx driver instead of the ati driver. And lo and behold no more runaway processes or high cpu xorg processes! Might help someone!
