  1. would something like this work? http://home.satx.rr.com/mystified/img/tran...centTomato1.png
  2. As someone mentioned there's often a readme file which will "usually" give instructions on installation. 1. It's hard to cover every situation but assuming you're already in that directory and you have a terminal open type the following at the prompt: ./configure 2. Wait until it's done and if you have no errors then the next step is to type: make 3. After that's finished in the terminal type: su root password You have to be root user to install the program. 4. As root you will type: make install Hopefully all is well and your program is installed correctly.
  3. It's awesome Ill! I use opera and the menu on the right works fine except under helpful links the Mandrakeusers.FAQ extends outside the box. I took a quick glance at your css and I'm going to study your coding when I have a few moments. Great job!
  4. :lol: You're welcome! Just glad I could help.
  5. kilamanjaro, I don't know how much help I can be because I don't have that version of OO installed but from reading the docs it looks like it installs in /opt so try looking in that directory. In order to change the entries in the menu to point to your new installation you can use menudrake. You can either open a console and type menudrake or you can go through the mandrake control center. Once you've got it open scroll down to Office and find your OO programs, click on them and where it says command type your path to the executable. i.e. /opt/oomath (or whatever it is). Do that for each entry and then click save and your menu will be updated.
  6. Why didn't you tell me before I spent $30 on an advanced css book yesterday? :P Yes, please write the tutorial. :)
  7. The name of the directory it creates should be OOo_1.1.0_LinuxIntel_install Try that. There's a SETUP_GUIDE.pdf in that directory which seems to be very thorough.
  8. Sorry to hear your having problems. Here's a thread that discusses the same thing and there are several good links. http://mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?p=60236#60236 If there is something in particular you are having problems with please post the details so that we can help you. Sorry but I'm not familiar with your other posts on the subject. :)
  9. Hi and welcome to the board. I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to do but it would be easier if you just burned the iso's and install from there. The installer will reformat and partition your hd and configures just about everything automatically. If you downloaded the iso's be sure to use MD5sum to check them. If you're not sure here's a FAQ on it http://mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=4638
  10. I've never installed Quicktime because plugger handles quicktime files. But I do install the other plugins and they work fine. Don't know if you've read this http://www.opera.com/linux/docs/plugins/ but those are the guidelines I use for installation. Hope this helps!
  11. :lol: Thanks for posting your progress. I'm sure someday somebody else will have the problem and find your thread very useful. As far as being a noobie you can change your title anytime you want. Just pm one of us admins and we'll be happy to do it. :)
  12. There really is a Barbie computer http://www.businesswire.com/photowire/pw.0....080399/bw2.jpg Now all you have to do is put linux on it. :wink:
  13. I don't know about any fs but I've used it on Reiser with no problems.
  14. That kind of statement is truely insulting. The only limitations we have are the ones society puts on us with the constant brainwashing and THAT has been proven with numerous studies. We are given all sorts of message growing up and even as adults. Why don't they build a Ken version for boys? :roll:
  15. What a load of $hit. Just more stereotyping for females. I'd like to meet the guy in person and then he'd quickly find out how hysterical *I* could make him.
  16. It should be installed in /usr/bin/ if I remember from my brief use of the program. To launch it though open up a terminal and change to the directory where the program you are trying to run is located and type wine program.exe Good luck!
  17. I added anon's source to the FAQ. :)
  18. Try reading this http://mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=4567 Btw, we've got a great FAQ section.
  19. This might help http://mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=4499 Also be sure to check your md5sums http://mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=4638
  20. Hey, I've earned the title shegeek according to paul! :P What's this I hear about my grandson getting married soon? Are granmammie and granpappie invited? :wink:
  21. I was feeling really evil so I went to their feedback page. They wanted to know what I liked best about their program and I said, "It gets me more business because people want their web pages done correctly." Then they wanted to know what I didn't like and I gave them the snapshots of the pages for the website. Then they wanted to know how they could improve their website and I said, 'You can fix your site." And then I included a snapshot of their page with the errors. Can't wait to see IF they respond. <ot I have three emoticons actually. mystismiles, mystilol and darkmyst. Paul did it :lol: >
  22. I thought this was too funny. These are the snapshots of the website that caused the owners to have me redo their site - Image 1 Image 2 And this is a picture from the main page of the site for the program that the pages were written with. Image 3 It's the most accurate advertisement for what you get than I've ever seen! :lol:
  23. :shock: I'm just learning html, css and a little javascript. I don't know how to use php! :lol: Thanks tho!
  24. I've been checking into the two methods of submitting on-line forms. The first and easiest of course being via email. I coded my page that way only to find out that Opera doesn't support it. It works in IE though. The other being via cgi. I spent three hours this morning using google and couldn't find one decent site that explained how this methods works. Help? TIA
