  1. Have you tried our sugestions yet? I think that will help you out (web browser AND desktop) System --> Configuration --> Configure Your Computer A window opens and asks for your root password. Then Mandrake Control Center opens. Then click on Hardware and then Screen Resolution. You should see choices for 640x480, 800x600, and so on. Click on a larger number there. If you don't have any larger settings there, you will need to install the proper ATI video driver, which I know nothing about since I use nvidia stuff here. If you have problems with any window and can't seem to reach some buttons and scrollers... use the ALT button with the left mouse click to move the window around.
  2. http://mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=16277 plus there are a few other threads within this "Installing Mandrake" forum, but we'll forgive you this time, seeing your new and the search don't like small words like CD 4. Welcome to MUB :D
  3. Hope you just mean like in your web browser (konquorer?) when surfing this web page? If so, open up the mandrake control center (configure your computer... in the "start" menu) or type mcc in a terminal / console. There's an option in there someplace to change your monitor's resolution. Your probally set on 640x480 and need something more like 800x600. Oh, and welcome to our forum. :D
  4. mmmm, OK.... nahhhh, will just pin it here. Looking forward to reading this.
  5. Try the tab that reads, "Device Icons" where Pzatch pointed to. In there you would want to uncheck (clear the selection box) next to the one that sez, " Mounted Hard Disk Partition."

    Java in MDK 10

    welcome to our forum MadKAT, Wasn't sure if you were trying to run it in a browser or what, but sounds like your just missing a symlink? Here's my notes on how to make it work with konquorer. Maybe it will help ??? Adjust your paths and version numbers accordingly. in terminal or console: [scoopy@localhost scoopy]$ su Password: [root@localhost scoopy]# cd /usr/bin [root@localhost bin]# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01//bin/java java [root@localhost bin]# then [root@localhost scoopy]# cd /usr/lib/netscape/plugins [root@localhost plugins]# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns4/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so now goto: K --> Configuration --> Configure your Desktop under WebBrowsing, be sure Endable Java globally is checked and, under Plugins click on Scan for New Plugins. Restart your browser and you should be good to go. Here's a test page: http://java.com/en/download/help/testvm.jsp
  7. Yes... please do. And while we are on the subject of being on topic: moskal, this thread is intended for posting screen shots of your desktop. If you have general questions on how to do things... feel free to start a new topic. It will be beneficial to you (and others to come) and you will get much better answers to your specific questions that way. (BTW, welcome to the forum)
  8. Just an idea here... Do they offer an XML feed of this ? Maybe you could use gdesklet's weather setup and hack it to show your satellite picture instead?
  9. *bump* somebody gotta know what happened to this option ?
  10. If your running KDE... kget seems to do the job if you want to snag files from using konq. (not sure about directories tho)
  11. Using KDE... you may want to try a program named, "kppp" ???
  12. I think most problems usually occur because the jumper settings on the drives on not set correctly (Computer Select, Master, Slave, Single) or sometimes because the Masters are not at the end of the ribbon cable. I would (and have mine set up this way) take the DVD player and add that to same cable as the CDRW. Your jumper settings should be fine --- as they are already setup the way we want here (as master/slave). These should be plugged into IDE 2. (this should be marked on the MOBO, if either ribbon is in a raid plug... then never mind me... for I know nothing of that sort of setup ) Before adding the other harddrive, I would reboot... just to be sure things go good at this point. (I don't change these things everyday, you know ;) ) Is there anything your saving on this new drive ? I would think you should just be able to plug it in, mount it, and be good to go. Just be sure the jumpers on the drive are set to slave and you use the middle connector on the ribbon cable for IDE 1.

    gimp 2.0

    Just seen this one hasn't gotten any replies yet Just tried this with my setup in Mandrake 10 official and it works here. Do you have gimp2_0-python-2.0.0-2mdk installed ? [scoopy@localhost scoopy]$ rpm -qa | grep gimp2 gimp2_0-python-2.0.0-2mdk gimp2-freetype-0.5-3mdk gimp2_0-2.0.0-2mdk libgimp2.0_0-2.0.0-2mdk
  14. Open up a terminal (or console) window and type this: rpm -qa | grep kernel-source If installed it will return something like: kernel-source-2.6.3-7mdk If NOT, it will just return to the cli (command prompt) and we will need to get the exact version of your kernel ... so we can match it with the proper source. rpm -qa | grep kernel This should return something like: kernel-

    Did you just upgrade and/or run the upgrade script ? You didn't overwrite the config.php file or use a different phpnuke package from some other site ? Those error messages usually mean crap. I find most errors are usually due to a wrong config setting, bad upload, or wrong file permissions. You can try running the file below for a better idea of the error (just place in your server's root and open via a browser): http://nukecops.com/downloads-file-13-details-Analyzer.html Do you have webmin or phpMyAdmin installed ? You can double-check your databases with these.
  16. I think the missing piece to the puzzle here is the kernel-source. Is this installed ? The makefile could be looking for this ??? I could be wrong here... been a while since I dealt with winmodem stuff.
  17. Unfortunately... this file is not on your computer. Your webhost (interfree) has forced it upon you. They use a frameset page, which puts their banner on the top (in the first frame) and then places your "index" page (in another frame) right below it. I am afraid you will have to inquirer about this problem in club interfre's forum or email them and see what they can do.
  18. Seems Composer actually passed the test somehow. I ran Keith's index.html page (http://kbloyd.interfree.it/index.html) through the HTML Validator @ http://www.w3.org/ and it passed as This Page Is Valid HTML 4.01 Transitional! http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%...it%2Findex.html I then tried the frameset page that comes up when you goto http://kbloyd.interfree.it/ ( could be something the webhost is using to put ads on Kieth's page ) and this failed big time: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%...interfree.it%2F problem one here: should be: <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> I really am not sure if this is enough to throw off Konqueror or not... but its a start. Either way, its a good bet that the problem lays in this frameset page the site uses. Here's a handy link: http://validator.w3.org/
  19. Found you some links: http://wp.netscape.com/eng/mozilla/4.0/han...#about_composer or there's more here: http://www.svsu.edu/~mjh/composer.html
  20. Or for people like me (that always seems to have syntax problems trying command line stuff) ... I like to download the RPMs I want to a folder named "RPMS" in my /home directory. I also add this as a local files source in Software Media Manager and then install using the GUI "Install Software" (otherwise known as... RPM Drake) Burn 'em to a disc and it is better than the club's CD 4... cause it got the programs you want. :D Only major drawback is sometimes figuring out those depends issues.
  21. Looks good so far... but I would agree with iphitus here about the type. Needs some tweeking there (maybe some bold... maybe some script type). I would also do something about the page background and the content box having the same color. As for the "S", I don't know about making that 3D... maybe just a small beveled edge might do the trick ??? anyways... good job. :D
  22. Excellant... Thanx, gonna give it a shot this weekend.
  23. That's good for an assist... they count too ;) (confirmations on good advice are a good thing too) Blue Storm, Is there an exact error message that you could report here to help solve this problem?
  24. Your Welcome :D and thanks for letting us know it worked. And while I am in a complementing mood... thanks AussieJohn for the extra details.
