  1. Oooh thank you everyone, I got it compiled ^_^
  2. Oooh :] I think that would be the thing needed. Thank you for helping, I'll post back if there's anything else. You're all Stars (*) :]]
  3. Hmm, that worked but "checking for KDE... configure: error: in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail. So, check this please and use another prefix! " It just seems to be another problem after another =/ Can you help again please? thanks :]
  4. Thank you, just had dinner - so I'll install these now. I think they will work =]
  5. Hmm, this is weird. I looked through /usr/lib and QT3 and QT4 are there? And when i do that command I get the following: "[root@localhost joshua]# urpmi qt3-common Package qt3-common-3.3.8b-1mdv2008.1.i586 is already installed Package qt3-common-3.3.8b-1mdv2008.1.i586 can not be installed" =/
  6. Right, I've found the source so I can install it by compilation, but half way through ./configure it says "checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.3 and < 4.0) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation! " I don't know where to install these. Can you please help? Thanks
  7. Does anyone know where I can download this please? Because I need it for a theme that I want. The links on KDE-Look don't work for it. Is there an RPM? Thanks for helping.
  8. Well, at first - it didn't detect the printer. And it was turned on and plugged into the parallel port. But - I didn't realise to restart my computer to get it to work. So now, it's working. Thanks so much for helping Liquidzoo ------------ Josh
  9. Heya.. I just installed Mandriva 2008.1 today and so far love it, coming from ubuntu. There is one teething problem I am having with it though. I can't set up my printer. It is a Epson Stylus C62. I chose it from the printer lists and everything and the printer is connected via the parallel port. But it won't print. What option shall I pick for where it is plugged in? Since it is in the parallel port. Thanks --------- Josh
  10. Here's my desktop with compiz fusion. Changed Human GTK to Glossy
  11. It's not much but I think it's quite purdy. On Ubuntu 7.10.
  12. I really do like Mandriva, when Hardy comes out- If it doesn't please me, I think I'll be re-formatting my drive and sticking Mandriva on it. I think it is amazing. Much faster - and with KDE 4, it looks ok. I came from a GNOME environment - but I don't mind which I use, KDE makes me happy though xD
  13. Hmm, Rofl Cos I only just took windows off (well 3 months ago) My dad doesn't want me to install it yet. Even though he doesn't know too much about computers. But when Hardy comes out, I'll check it out - but I think Mandriva is more my liking. I LOVE IT!!! So I guess I'll be using thta soon
  14. I don't know for certain, but I'm using the live CD again now - and I think I am going to install it. I love it
  15. Thanks for the help. I'm gonna give the live CD another whizz, and I think I might install it. =]
  16. Hello, I have been using Ubuntu now for a year and a bit. But, it has started to get old-hat, and some of the things (such as my USB ADSL modem) don't work very well in it. So, I tried out Mandriva One the other day and I was amazed at how good it is with my hardware. I mean, I don't need them, but my 3D effects on ubby really aren't very good - and that may be down to my 64MB shared graphics, but they work wonders in Mandriva. My internet connection is superb. So I am quite swayed now. Should I change? Or What? And, in Ubuntu, where you can upgrade every 6 months - is this sort of thing implemented in Mandriva? Thank you for your help.
