  1. [Thanks, so I have to change my fstab file, right? Mounting the disks in /media solved this problem for anyone here?
  2. (I should stop messing with my system files...) Yap. I can't even remember the name of the file I deleted (and I'm not sure it was a configuration file, but VTerm is the only thing isn't working because of that). I think it was in the /etc directory but I don't know. When I use backspace my terminal shows a symbol like "+-", the cursor keys aren't working. The KDE terminal emulator is working fine, but I need VTerm. What can I do to make VTerm work again?
  3. Hello, I have a problem, when I double click my hard disk icons in the left panel of the GNOME file manager the computer does nothing. Yap, not error message nor beep, just nothing. By now I just can open them going to the place in the tree where I mounted them ( /mnt/c and /mnt/d ). I think the problem started when I modified my fstab file to mount them in /mnt/c and /mnt/d and not in /mnt/win_c and /mnt/win_d. The disk icons are accessible from Krusader (a KDE application for managing files), so I think it has something to do with GNOME. What can I do to use the icons again?
  4. Well, I think I should be able to connect using kermit but something is wrong, I tried it with kermit, and when I try to SET LINE ttyUSB0 kermit answers "Sorry, write access to UUCP lockfile directory denied." even when I am loged in as root Here is exactly what happened after I installed kermit, my calculator is connected to the ttyUSB0 port (I can say it because I can see that a file with this name appeared in /dev when I connected it) [/home/roberto/Download/cku211] make installInstalling C-Kermit version 8.0.211...

  5. Thanks, I compiled hptalx, but it crashes when trying to connect. From its sourceforge page I know I'm not the only one who has this problem (I'm uploading its bugreport, if someone can help me with this) , so I tried to compile another program, hptrans, but I can't compile this, its ./configure complains about missing Common C++ libraries version 1.3.0 or greater, even after I downloaded and installed libcommoncpp2-1.6.2, and its devel version. I really would like to connect using the USB port, now I'm learning hpgcc, which will allow me to program it in C, I'm eager to try that. Is there any other programs that I can use to connect to my hp calculator?, Can I use c-kermit to connect through USB port? I dont need a GUI, I can use the command line. Thanks. hptalx_bugreport0.txt
  6. Hello, I have a Hewlett-Packard HP50g calculator and I wish I could transfer files from my computer to my calculator using my Mandriva 2008.0, does someone know some program I can use to do that? Currently I'm using a windoze application to do that (HP50g Calculator Connectivity Kit (CONNX4) ), but I am feeling a little guilty. Probably any program that can deal with a HP48g or HP49 would do the job. [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  7. Happy again! I recovered my decorators copying the configuration files from a user whose window-decorators were Ok and may decorators came back. Then, I found my video-card box and realized I had selected the wrong driver for my video-card, selected de right one and my 3d effects were back too.
  8. Sorry for not being here so long time, I had to travel... but now I'm back (and my problems too) My graphic card is NVidia GForce/4xxx, and the 3D desktop effects worked very well in the same hardware before, I didn't change the hardware.

Thanks.
  9. Now I can use the X server, finally I can see my desktop!!!. For the record, what finally gave me back my desktop was uninstalling all my fonts (as ffi told me) and uninstalling and reinstalling again the x11-task package, right now I've only installed the fonts asked by x11-task. I uninstalled my fonts one by one with various commands like rpm -e --nodeps x11-font-xxxxx :huh: But I've lost my window manager and my compizfusion 3D effects, yap, nor tittle bar nor window sizers in GNome (which is the one I constantly use). In KDE the window manager is working, but the 3D effects aren't working, and the screen display is very bad: I can't look at my desktop cause hurts my eyes, it seems it's blinking at a high frequency all the time, and when I use XFdrake the configuration is the same as in gnome. The tool that usually let me use 3D effects now says my computer doesn't support them (metisse and compizfusion choices are disabled) So now I would like to recover my GNOME window manager and the 3D desktop effects, at least the GNOME window manager because I can't even move my windows. What should I do? (I don't know if it deserves another topic, but I think the main reason for this problem is the same as my original post, namely, removing/uninstalling all my fonts)
  10. Ok, I'll uninstall those fonts and reinstall them, after that I'll try rpm -e task-x11 && urpmi task-x11
  11. I did rpm --allmatches --nodeps ...... And it complained like this: rpm: --allmatches may only be specified during package erasure (note it was --allmatches and not --all-matches, and the rpm --help says --allmatches its probably wrong if the package name matches multiple files) Thank you, and does your /etc/X11/xorg.conf has some FilePath or FileName section
  12. Ok, i'll try the ' rpm --all-matches .... ' ffi solution, hope it works, thank you. I'll be back.
  13. The files libfreetype6, libcairo2, libxft2 are in the usr/lib directory and when I try to install *each* font it says "the xxxxxx package is already installed" I keep thinking it is strange that I don't have the directory /usr/lib/X11/fonts and its subdirectories, that is where xorg.conf man page says it searches the fonts. I'll go to try to ensure that the packages are really installed from the DVD by uninstalling them and reinstalling them, it can't go worse any way, I'm very worried by now, hope there exists a solution :unsure: .
  14. I didn't delete any file directly. I uninstalled all the fonts from the "Fonts and Windows import wizard" tool of "Configure my Computer" tool. When I quit the "Configure my computer" I couldn't start the "Install and remove software" tool, (it just didn't started, without even an error message), fortunately the krusader twin-pane file manager did work, althougth with a rare ugly font, from that I went to my 2008.0 DVD and from the /media/main... directory (I can't remember the exact path) installed everything that had a font relative file name (i.e. *font*.*) with the "Install software" tool. (I don't remember if it asked my root password), I restarted krusader and it worked fine, with its habitual font, restarted my computer and... I saw that error message.
  15. Yes, I did run XFdrake, it ran in text-mode and I disabled Composite just to test if it makes it better, reviewed the settings (graphic card, resolution, refresh rate) and everything seems ok. When I went to Test it didn't say anything and went back to the main XFdrake text dialog (I think the test didn't succeed). By the way the complain message is: can't find the default font 'fixed', and I uninstalled and reinstalled the fonts, so IMHO the problem should be there...
  16. Well, I think you *need* to edit your Makefile, I'd do it like this kwrite Makefile And, I don't think the root-terminal mode is needed at all, when editing replace YOUR_C_COMPILER for gcc and save the file. Then, type make At the last step, to be root and make install type su -c "make install" The system will ask for the root password, type it, press enter and that should be enough. By the way, usually the sequence is: ./configure make su -c "make install" But in that source tarball may be different, do as the readme says.
  17. Ok, the X graphic servers complains because can't find default font 'fixed', and also said it uses /etc/X11/xorg.conf configuration file, so I read that file, and checked its man page, and discovered that it searches fonts in the directories that FilePath specifies, but my xorg.conf file doesn't have any FilePath, so, as the man page says, it should be looking fonts in /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc , /usr/lib/X11/fonts/TTF , /usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1 , /usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi /usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi but, surprise, I don't have the /usr/lib/x11/fonts directory (nor its subdirectories) so I guess this is the reason why it can't find the 'fixed' default font. Can anyone check its /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and check if it does have any FilePath specification and, if it doesn't, do you have the /usr/lib/X11/fonts directory and its subdirectories? Should I create those directories and put some symlinks or files there? HELP PLEASE.
  18. I ran urpmi task-X11 and it said that that package is already installed. I've saw the advice David Batson posted and seems a little complicated, or at leas not as easy as installing something, I'd like something like urpmi something else; I just uninstalled something that was in my DVD so I should be able to recover it in some easy (but command line) way, may be someone knows which is that default 'fixed' font that X11 can't find and in which package it is. Anyway, I'll try the David Batson way right now. But hope there is a easier solution. Keep helping, please.
  19. Ok, I'll go home to try it, hope it works. Thanks. (Any other help is still welcome)
  20. I don't have an internet connection from my computer... I do have the 2008.0 DVD. Can I do something without Internet connection?
  21. Yap, I uninstalled every font from my system, and now I cant start the graphic server, it complains about missing FIXED font, and lets me in text mode. ¿How do I install it again from the command line? (I know my root password) ¿In which package file is it? Help me please!
  22. WAIT, wait, wait... it just happened almost the same thing to me and I solved it this way: I've just changed some info in my fstab, when the problem arose, these are the lines: This is my /etc/fstab When I couldn't mount my /dev/hdb8: (with the same message about the magic number and super-block as yours) /dev/hdb5 / ext3 relatime 1 1 /dev/hdb8 /home ext3 relatime 1 2 /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto umask=0022,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto umask=0022,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,exec,flush 0 0 /dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c vfat umask=0,iocharset=utf8 0 0 /dev/hdb3 /mnt/win_k ntfs umask=0022,nls=utf8,ro 0 0 /dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d vfat umask=0,iocharset=utf8 0 0 /dev/hdb6 /mnt/win_j ntfs umask=0022,nls=utf8,ro 0 0 /dev/hda6 /mnt/win_e vfat umask=0,iocharset=utf8 0 0 /dev/hda7 /mnt/win_f vfat umask=0,iocharset=utf8 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hdb7 swap swap defaults 0 0 /dev/sda1 /media/hd vfat umask=0022,users,iocharset=utf8,sync,noauto,exec 0 0 I've swaped /dev/hdb7 info with /dev/hdb8 info, like this /dev/hdb5 / ext3 relatime 1 1 /dev/hdb8 swap swap defaults 0 0 /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto umask=0022,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto umask=0022,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,exec,flush 0 0 /dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c vfat umask=0,iocharset=utf8 0 0 /dev/hdb3 /mnt/win_k ntfs umask=0022,nls=utf8,ro 0 0 /dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d vfat umask=0,iocharset=utf8 0 0 /dev/hdb6 /mnt/win_j ntfs umask=0022,nls=utf8,ro 0 0 /dev/hda6 /mnt/win_e vfat umask=0,iocharset=utf8 0 0 /dev/hda7 /mnt/win_f vfat umask=0,iocharset=utf8 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hdb7 /home ext3 relatime 1 2 /dev/sda1 /media/hd vfat umask=0022,users,iocharset=utf8,sync,noauto,exec 0 0 and the problem is almost solved, I can see all my linux drives from linux, the only problem is that I can't mount my /dev/hdb6 (/mnt/win_j) but it it's a Windoze disk that I can use and see from windows, I'll try to fix this when I can.
  23. :D Thanks, I solved it like this: I went to Home icon, asked for a shell, then typed kcontrol, then apeared the control center..., and I put my panel one side and then up (as this is the position I use it). Accept. And everything OK. Why it disapeared? Who knows... (put "twilight zone" music please)
  24. Yes, my KDE menu is just gone, without apparent reason, I was working and suddenly it was gone. I've restarted the computer, and it didn't come back, I've disabled 3D effects, and it didn't come back. How can I fix this, please? :unsure:
  25. A long time out of here, anyway... Yes, but not using GNU GPL, my clients are not allowed to sell or give my product to, but they can explore, verify, or modify the product any way they like. It is free like speech, not like beer. Ok, I'm quite good in C++ with Borland VCL library, I've developed large command-line programs in Python (one of those helps me to generate nice PHP menu based applications for the web), I'm good in C#, but not as much as in C++, and only developed two not-so-difficult nor big commercial applications. I know Java, but just developed test programs. I'm good in PHP too... I've used wxWidget for testing a year ago, and is quite difficult for me, and slow to compile. I'm wondering how easier it can be in Python (wxPython) (I've already installed wxGTK 2 and I am about to compile wxPython against it) I think Java would be good, but I also dislike the look and feel of Java applications, and one big "motivation" to move my product to mandriva is the useful candy-eye... OK, I am about to feel how good it can be, I'll tell you when I finish my project... :) Thanks :D , great, I'm about to test Kwrite + Python + wxPython, I'll watch pyGTK later, but I think it must be harder than wxWidgets... isn't it? I'll see if I can find a good tutorial...
