  1. Your correct, I did this yesterday after my last post. I came across a forum mentioning LinNeighborhood, I had totally forgotten about it. Mandrake does not include it in the CDs I downloaded, I had to add a main source and there it was. I used to use LinNeighborhood in Mandrak 9.2. Smb4K is buggy as all hell, why did Mandrake package this for Mandrake 10? Instead of LinNeighborhood? It is so much better.
  2. That's exactly what I was doing. They get mounted into /mnt/ anyway.
  3. I re-mounted it again, and then unmounted it by unchecking the checkboxes that were checked when it was mounted (this removed it from the desktop. I then edited fstab (I removed the entry). Finally, I deleted the directory created for it in /mnt/ Seems to work as it no longer appears when I boot.
  4. I created a Samba mountpoiunt thru the MCC, but noticed that I could not write to the Windows XP share and, also, this mountpoint hangs when I am booting up Mandrake 10.1 Official. I want to get rid off it, but I can't. MCC will not complete the unmount even though I notice it's no longer listed as mounted. It shows up on my desktop as a "Remote Share." Any help appreciated.

    I assume that acquiring a QT license for commercial applications will be up to the programmer.

    I think only a handful of people know, but they are not talking. You will just have to wait for the preview release. Just send an e-mail with the subject preview to info@kbasic.com and wait for the announcement.

    Hi all, Just in case any of you here are interested, KBasic is about to be released soon. Although it will be commercial. 24.95 EURO. It will be cross-platform between Linux and Windows and be QBasic and VB6 syntax compatible. With a version for the MAC OS coming out later. KBasic
  8. Another user at MandrakeClub found a solution to the Beast Wars font defaulting in the root user's Konqueror: /root/.kde/share/config/konquerorrc --or-- /[user folder]/.kde/share/config/konquerorrc -- post below posted by John at MandrakeClub --- The file appears to be this one: ~/.kde/share/config/konquerorrc There is an entry in the [FMSettings] section called: StandardFont Mine was set to a Windows TrueType font I was using in MDK 9.1. Somehow the upgrade to 9.2 didnĀ“t like this and used BeastWars instead. By changing it to StandardFont=Helvetica [or StandardFont=Sans or a font you know exists] and saving the file all appears to be ok. Hope this helps someone else. -John
  9. What's the exact CVS command to use to start the upgrade from the mandrake servers?
  10. "get thee to CVS!" I'm a newbie, can you explain CVS? "I'm confused all the packages on that site are 3.1.92 not 3.2 eh?" I noticed that, but I guess that has to do with the fact that it isn't quite 3.2 yet?
  11. If anyone knows where I can download an installable version of KDE 3.2 for Mandrake 9.2 please let me know. Looks like the new KDE is an awesome upgrade. http://www.kde.org/announcements/announce-3.2beta1.php
  12. I don't see this: "File Manager --Super user mode" I just decided to reinstall this thing and see if I can avoid most of the problems the second time around. Thanks for the help.
  13. After installing Mandrake 9.2 I have come across several problems. The one that I can't seem to get rid of now is a font problem that only happens to the root user when logged in with KDE. If I login with GNome everything is fine. I don't know if this problem started before or after I added Windows fonts as I don't login to the root account on a regular basis. When I click on the Home link the Konqueror window shows the file and folder names in the "Beast War" font in very large type. It's very hard to navigate the file system like this. Is there a way to change the font? I am willing to reset the fonts if possible. Any help is appreciated.
