I already added the need it repositories to my system(Look at snapshot of my desktop). I also copy my (.kde) directory files into a new directory call (.kde-old). But when I'm in run level 3 (init 3) as a super user and I typed this; #urpmi --auto-select after I pressed "Enter" nothing happend, my computer just stays still. I don't see any activity that tells me that something is being downloaded. Am I doing something wrong or perhaps I'm missing a step. Can anyone help me with this?. THANK YOU Jose
  9. Hi Guys, I really need your help an after countless hours of searching my problem I haven't being able to find a solution to my problem. I'm another one of those that still fighting the mouse configuration problem. Trying to set my mouse to work in Linux like the way it works under windows. So far I've being able to have all the buttons in my mouse working with the exception of the "Left Thumb button" capabilities of making my browser to go "BACK". This are the things I've done so far, I place a file name (.xintrc) in my home (~/.xinitrc) directory with this information: imwheel -k -p -f -b "89" xbindkeys & and another file called (.xbindkeysrc) with this information: "xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[left]"" m:0x10 + b:8 "xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[right]"" m:0x10 + b:9 Also inside this directory (~/.kde/Autostart/ ) I placed the same two files I describe above. The other locations where I have some codes placed in my intent to solve this problem are in this directory (/etc/X11/); XF86Config Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse1" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2" Option "Device" "/dev/mouse" Option "Buttons" "9" Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no" EndSection and in this folder (/etc/X11/xinit.d) there is a file called "mouse_buttons" and I place this codes inside that file; xmodmap -e 'pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5 8 9 10' imwheel -f -k -b "89" xbindkeys & I did some trial and error in re-mapping the buttons in X and I came to the conclusion that I have to keep this part of the configuration at least like this, ("pointer=1 2 3 6 7 4 5) in order for my other buttons of my mouse to work correctly. I ran "xev" in my system with the intention of knowing which button code was trigger when I pressed the "Thumb button" and this is the code that is generate everytime ( button code = 8). So I know that number 8 correspond to this button in the eyes of X environment when you pressed it on your mouse. I also install this program (xvkbd ) in an another attempt to solve my problem but with not much luck. The strange thing is that one day started working my "Thumb Button" like I wanted too but then next day quit and it hasn't work ever since. All is doing now is scrolling the page up one line everytime I press the button. This is very strange and it puzzles me incredibly and here is where I need your expertice in helping understand and fix my problem. Thank you in advance for all your help GUYS. I'm going to be eternally grateful. Jose [moved from Installing Mandriva by spinynorman]
  10. I need a big favor from you guys. I need to figure out how to fix this problem and this is the story behind it. Apparently when I download Firefox the last time, I was log in as root because the only way I can load firefox now is under root rights by creating a new profile everytime. When the profile manager window shows I choose to create a new profile but the problems is that the directory where the profile is being storage is this one; This presents a problem because if I want to run firefox as a regular user, he is not going to be able to retrieve the profile because it doesn't have permission. Everytime I try to run firefox as a regular user, this is the message I get, Any help guys is very welcome, Please help me with firefox. Jose [moved from Installing Mandriva by spinynorman]
  11. Thank you for your suggestion. I did as you said but it didn't fixed the problem. I'm still looking at a "Translucent greenish mouse".
  12. Last thing I did was to update the Xorg X11 to version 6.9 which I read have the corrections to this problem but I still have the problem in my system. I don't know what else to do or maybe something I have to edit in my system or erase perhaps. Can any one lend me a hand in getting this problem fix? I'm really tired of looking at my cursor and not able to see it when I'm passing over white backgrounds. Jose
  13. I already try changing the theme for the cursor under "config yor desktop" with no change. I even tried the cursor that is red in color, looking to see if it will change but it didn't change all do I have to say that the size of the arrow did change from small to large but not the color. The friking transparent yellowish color still there and is driving me crazy. Jose
  14. Hi, Can somebody tell me how to change my mouse pointer? After installing Mandriva 2006, I have a nasty yellow cursor that you can hardly see. I have tried changing the themes already with no success. Jose
