  1. Alright, I got a little help from a friend. I just had to rpm -e freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc and livna-release-6-1, then reinstall. All better now. Thanks.
  2. I have a multiple part question here. First the background - in the process fixing an ffmpeg issue, I ended up deleting some repos. When I went back to reinstall some apps that I had deleted, I was unable to find them, as the repos that had them were the ones that I had deleted. So I went the the Unofficial Fedora Faq at http://www.fedorafaq.org/ and figured I'd set my yum repositories up again using the reccomended list. when I attempted to do that this is the error that I got: [root@localhost kevin]# rpm -Uvh http://www.fedorafaq.org/yum http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm Retrieving http://www.fedorafaq.org/yum Retrieving http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm Preparing... ########################################### [100%] package livna-release-6-1 is already installed file /etc/yum.repos.d/freshrpms.repo from install of yum-fedorafaq-6-2007.02.03 conflicts with file from package freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc So, here are my questions. how do I figure out what packages are conflicting, so that I can remove them? Once removed, will I need to delete the livna repo, for the above method of setup to work? Or would it be better for me to manualy set up my repos, and If so, could I get a few pointers on that? I appreciate any help available.
  3. Ok issue resolved. For others having the same problem, let me share what I've figured out. Pretty much all of the instructions/How-to's on Gnome icons stated that the icon filename, in a theme, needed to be set up like this: where "gnome" is your desktop manager, "mime" refers to a mimetype, "video" tells us the type of mime and "msvideo" is the specific mime type that the icon will be applied to. Now, what I've found is that gnome (gnome 2.16, at least) automaticaly points all the icons at "gnome-mime", when you add a new icon theme, or revise one, as was my case. So to get my icons to display with the appropriate filetype, they had to be named as follows: Also, it might be usefull to know that you can get a list of mimetypes from your /etc/mime.types file. Also, if you want to know a specific files mime type, you can right click the file, select properties, and the mimetype will be displayed, for that file, under the basic tab. Anyway, hope someone else can use this to skip the "frustration period".
  4. Ok, here's a continuation/exacerbation of my problem. I have found quite a few examples of how to structure the names of icons listed as mimetypes, but have been unable to get them to work. After a couple hours of frustration, I decided to try some "out of the box" icon sets provided for download at the gnome site and at gnome-look. To my surprise, the mimetype icons in every pack fail to load, while the actions, apps, devices, emblems, etc. icons work without a problem. Any ideas about what is happening here?
  5. This is turning out to be a little more complicated than I had thought. I'm having a hard time structuring the file names. Is there somewhere I can find a list of name standards, or a guide that explains how to piece them together? For example, in one icon set "gnome-mime-application-ogg.png" would assign an icon for ogg files, while in another set "gnome-mime-audio-ogg.png" would be used.
  6. That was pretty much the conclusion that I had come to. Oh well. In any case, I appreciate your help, tyme.
  7. Thanks tyme, I'd appreciate it if you could look when you get a chance, as I am unable to find anything in pref/admin that addresses icons aside from the "theme" option. And that doesn't help unless I want to change an entire icon theme.
  8. I recently decided to give Gnome another go, and am settling in quite nicely. However, one thing that I was wondering about was the ability to associate a particular icon with a file type. Specificaly, I have a set of media icons (mp3, mp4, avi, etc.) that I would like to globaly associate with their respective file type. Using KDE, this could be done quite simply with a "right click" and a change of options. Is there a similarly easy way to do this in Gnome, or will it require a manual edit of filenames in my Icon theme directory?
  9. Technicaly, your searches were right. There is an exchange plugin included with the package, but I don't know what it is used for, because it didn't help with a MS Exchange server. I pulled up the same answers when I was Googling for help. Anyway, the add'l plugin package was named evolution-connector. Everything was clear and easy to set up once the right plugin was loaded. Hopefully someone else will find this info. useful. Thanks again.
  10. Thanks for the link tyme, but I'm stuck on the very first step of the instructions. "Select Exchange Server". I'm running Evo. 2.6.3, and my plugins list Exchange (it's checked). But it doesn't show up on the server type selection list, when creating a new acct. Any Ideas? *EDIT* Please disregard - It seems that you do, still, have to install another exchange plugin. Everything is setup and running now. Thanks for the help.
  11. It is a reference to the early 80's show, Different Strokes, in which Gary Colemans character frequently retorts with "What you talking about, Willis?" (Referring to his TV brother, Willis)
  12. I need some help setting up a mail client that will connect to a local MS Exchange server. I have read that this is impossible in Thunderbird, but quite easy in Evolution, although, after several setup attempts, I have been unable to successfully connect in Evolution. Is there another app. that I may have an easier time with, or is there anyone who has had success in Evolution? I can still connect to my mail with the Exchange webmail route, but this is regularly "down" and it would be much more convenient to connect directly.
  13. GTKpod works fine for me also, and, as far as I know, it's the only one that will handle videos for a video iPod.

    iPod Problems

    SoulSe, my Ipod video will return to menu tree and stop displaying the "do not disconnect" message with a simple "eject". No addl. scripting was necessary. On the topic of Banshee, will it also support the transfer of video (m4v) files to the iPod? I use gtkpod because it's the only one I could find that would facilitate this. If Banshee works, I'd love to use something "prettier".
