  1. 1. Unpack tar.gz package file: $ gzip -dc slmdm-2.X.X.tar.gz | tar xf open a terminal and navigate to the directory where you downloaded the tar.gz. If it's in your /home you will automatically be there when you open the terminal. At the prompt type the command in exactly like you see it. Except leave out the $ 2. 'cd' to package directory: $ cd slmdm-2.X.X When you extract the tar.gz it will create a new directory called slmdm-2.X.X so type in the command as show above to navigate to the new directory. 3. Review and edit (if need) 'Makefile'. Note: Probably you will want to correct in Makefile path to your local linux kernel header files: KERNEL_INCLUDES=/path/to/linux/include Another way is to pass command line the parameter while running 'make': $ make KERNEL_INCLUDES=/path/to/linux/include ... in the console type make KERNEL_INCLUDES=/usr/src/linux/include (I think!) 4. Run 'make' command to compile package: $ make type in the command and wait for it to finish the compilation. I'm not sure what you're installation so I don't know what to tell you next. The basic steps though for installation of a tar.gz after extracting it is. ./configure make su to root make install Hope that helps. If not maybe somebody else will come along that can help you. :)
  2. Try seeing if you have the KDEArtwork package installed first. I "think" that's where the screensavers are.
  3. If you go to Configuration > KDE > Accessibility > Keyboard shortcuts there's away to change your scheme to use the Windows key. Hope that helps!
  4. The best advice I can give you is to please not log in as root because you can easily hose your system that way. It's best to use a terminal and su to root. Learning command line may be a little challenging at first but it's the best way to go in the long run. For example to change ownership all you have to do is to open a terminal, su root, cd to the directory where the file is located and type chown <nick> <name of file> or directory for that matter. If you need help we have a FAQ http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=4463 and if you can't find what you need there we're always here to help! :)
  5. I'm looking for people that are willing to help with translation. I know we had a list from the old board but a number of those people are no longer around so I'm starting over again. If you're interested please post your name and a message in what ever languages you speak along with information on how to contact you. Thanks!
  6. Well I'm a Mandrake user but I don't use Mozilla. When you install are you doing it from command line? If not try uninstalling and reinstalling using urpmi and see if you get any error messages. I'd be sure and remove everything first. Like I said I'm not a Mozilla user but that's what I'd try. HTH
  7. We currently have a report button that is located on the top, right side of each post next to edit. It is to be used for reporting violations of the guidelines as listed here http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=477 When someone reports a post, a link, with any message is sent to all four admins. We would like to continue to have this available since it is supposed to alert us to potential problems so that we can deal with them immediately. Unfortunately it is being used frivolously and at this moment we are considering disabling it. Please think before you report a post as to whether or not it is a violation of the guidelines. Do not use this as a means of expressing opinions regarding a post or to simply to "see what happens." Thank you, MUsB Admins
  8. Do you only have cd1? If you have 2 and 3 you need to add them as sources if they're not already listed. Then you can use rpmdrake or just urpmi which is what I prefer.
  9. DAO is the default I believe and what I usually use. Hope it works out for you.
  10. When you ran it from terminal did you get any error messages?
  11. Are you chosing to burn them as ISO's? I had the same problem and realized I was just burning them as data cds and that didn't work. But k3b and eroaster both have options to burn isos. Just a thought.
  12. He's a part of the FAQ/Development team which means he's a moderator of the FAQ Forum. I know cause I made that group moderators myself. He's just in denial. :P
  13. Now that's my only concern about LZ. I don't think he IS evil so I've made it my personal responsibility to fix that.
  14. Crossover office runs Photoshop but it's not free. Here's a link to their site. http://www.codeweavers.com/site/products/ You can download an evaluation version and see if it runs the software you need. For particular questions about wine itself tho you need to post in the emulation forum. :)
  15. I don't smoke! :P Now if he'd sent me a 12 pack of Smirnoff Ice that would have done the trick! ;)
  16. I like! It's awesome looking. (That emoticon seems to fit the new page. :lol:)
  17. LiquidZoo has been added to the moderator team. He's already a member of the FAQ and Development team so we're going to keep him really busy! ;)
  18. Maybe this will help http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=8481
  19. Then I see this post, has something fscked up. I split the post. Must have been left over from when we were having problems. :)
  20. /me wonders why the MASTER's apprentice would need to use any software. :P
  21. Okay, to give credit where it's due tyme and HJ told me about the seamless filter. I was trying to figure out a way to help bvc with his image and told them I needed to find a way to make images tile and they told me about how simple it is to do in gimp.
  22. Personally since I do all my own coding I just like the fact that bluefish "highlights" code so I quickly know if something is wrong.
  23. I use KDE. Tried gnome but just didn't care for it as much.
  24. I'm having the same prob with RR bvc. Hope they fix it soon.
  25. Found this http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_...Q_20705037.html HTH
