  1. I am in the process of doing other work So far , my first 2 attempts with inkscape resulted in this : and this :
  2. yes, designer and photographer. discovered Inkscape recently and it is really good to ink and color drawings. B)
  3. Not sure if it is the right place to post this message, but i give it a go. Took me a long time to make my tablet work and to familiarise myself with inkscape. However i think i have the hang of it now. Here is one of my few creation done entirely in Inkscape under Mandriva Spring 2007: What do you guys think. :mellow:
  4. i am sorry, but from the time i had all the requirements done and i started to launch the process from ./configure , it took 2 hours for my machine to compile and install scribus from the source. HARDLY 1 minute.
  5. amazing, i was able to compile scribus after having had to download 700 mb OF Development packages. it was a very strenuous experience. no wonder people stick to windows or mac. i wasted all my evening to install scribus and after that i too tired and p*&"£ed of to do something on it. Linux is defintely NOT READY for the common user, like all distros want to make us believe, it is still aimed to the fervent computer geek. i am again very much disapointed. like i said before, id rather spend my time using the DTP and graphic software raher than wasting time trying to install them.
  6. all right, i finished installing the sdk packages and when i want to install qtlib, it tells me : i am stuck again, 602 mb downloaded and installed for nothing.
  7. where is exactly that bloody information on what is wrong with with the installation ???
  8. all right i have installed all development packages i can find. now when i run ./configure, here is what it tells me : and however when i tried to install the packages, it tells me that they are already installed, i.e : so i am at a loss again. i don't understant all that hassle to install just one software. help please. :wall: :wall:
  9. i already have installed the devel packages suggested (qt3, cups, python, ghostscript ) which other one do i need to install then ? :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:
  10. ok i tried it again by unpacking with Ark. Now i enter the following command : however, this is what is displayed : here is what it says in the config file : i am at a loss. !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. hi, the file is a tar.bz2, i downloaded it from the sourceforge website and tried to uncompress it(by entering tar -xjvf /home/nova/download/scribus- however this is what i got when i try it : tar: /home/nova/download/scribus- Cannot open: No such file or d irectory tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors any idea what is wrong ?
  12. well, i have installed the scribus version going through the steps you describe. however, i downloaded the tar version of scribus 13.3.9 and this is this version that i do not know how to install since it is a .tar file. i look for a rpm version of the scribus but was not successful in finding one.
  13. hi, i have installed scribus on my mandriva 2007 spring, however, i seems to have some bugs, for example, the extended image properties (where you can find clipping paths) is greyed and i cannot edit the shape properly without moving the picture t the right of the box hence cutting right side of the box the image box "edit shape" . Somehow on the scribus windows version that i was able to install, the bug about the shape edit properties of the image box is working fine. I have downloaded the scribus tar file, however i don't know how to install it. Is there a rpm package somewhere for scribus ? help would be very much appreciated.

  14. i tried to install my canon i950 on mandriva 2007 spring. there is an option to load the .ppd file from the canon printer cd rom or from the windows partition. however, i cannot find the file on either. Does anyone know on where to find the file ??? Help would be appreciated. i am at a loss
  15. i recently downloaded and installed the new mandriva 2007 spring. I have pretty much been able to have all my hardware working under it. However, i still have issues with my Wacom Volito2 tablet. I installed the linux wacom rpm but, still, no success. Does anyone knows a way to make it work. i am at a loss and i would very much stop using windows graphics design softwares and want to switch to the linux (inkscape, for instance or gimp) but without my tablet graphic, i am stuck to Windows. Any help would be very much welcome and appreciated.
  16. how do you do it in beryl ?
  17. i am using 3d desktop (the cube) with compiz. is it possible to have different background on each side of the cube when you rotate the cube ? Help would be very much appreciated !!!
  18. what are the correct parameters to put in configuration ?
  19. strange occurence on my inspiron 4150 since i installed mandriva spring. when i insert a music cd and i want to play it with xmms, it does not recognize the cd. when i look in the files browser and click on the cd, the contents are not displayed. however, when i launch amarok, and click on play cd, it works. any idea about this ?
  20. i tried to install kxdocker and run it (tried it on mandriva 2006 and 2007-1) however nothing appears. I thought initially that the application did not launch, but after a while i discovered through the konsole that it is runing, even though there is nothing on the screen). i tried to use ksmoothdock but this application is not as smooth as its name implies. i will try to install kroller to see if it works. :D
  21. at last, i got it, it works thanks.
