  1. Current desktop on my trusty little laptop! Click to enlarge
  2. Hi, yep it's KDE, & yes it does work in KDE rather well actually :) As dude67 states I also installed it from the repositories (Mandriva 2008.1) along with the plugins although some of the plugins don't quite work yet (on going build i think) Thank you & lol -- there's a saying in the North of England 'it never rains in Manchester, just POURS' ;) so if your ever thinking of visiting make sure you bring your waterproofs :)

    No root passwd

    The issue was for Mandiva 2008.1 & not 2008 though I have to stress this is now resolved.. :)
  4. Laptop: Mandriva 2008.1 AWN Oxygen Icons Domino BCReal Oxygen emerald :)
  5. HI, Liquid Weather from http://liquidweather.net & the version is 14.8 as you stated. Can't remember now but I do believe it requires PyQT which you can obviously download first. Finally yes the networking shows both upload & download speed - you'll problably need to open the skz file in kwrite & maybe change the interface (eth0, wlan0, wlan1 etc) to your choice.. hth
  6. Hi & welcome, can you open a terminal window & then type su then enter the root (administrator) password, then type ifconfig .. what does it show? Normally if all is well what should happen is that your router hands out an ip address & you should be good to go just like windows I guess. I take it this isn't happening?

  8. Just in the process of configuring Mandriva 2008.1 RC2 on my lappy - so March desktop is gonna be my LinuxMint desktop! :)

    No root passwd

    Just wondering if anyone else has encountered this issue. I've installed Mandriva 2008.1 RC2 3 or 4 times now (various reasons!) & each time entering the password for 'root'. Once i'm in my user account & need to use an application that requires root priviliges I have not been prompted for a password! After doing a 'passwd root' all was well... a bug or is it just me?
  10. Hi you could always try Backtrack (http://www.remote-exploit.org/backtrack.html) which is a very handy live CD & has many tools built in to check wireless issues (kismet, air-mon to name a couple). You should be able to tell how many workstations are using the connections along with tons of other info.. HTH
  11. Hey, Don't know if this will help but i did a search http://www.scroogle.org/cgi-bin/nbbw.cgi (ACER ASPIRE 5520G linux) & the first link albeit for Ubuntu shows that this laptop will work with Linux http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=3589861 ??
  12. I have to totally agree with your point. In some cases users will use older version distro's which have stopped security updates & the reason the users are still using the older version is because it works the way they want, it's configured the way they want & to upgrade in most cases will mean breaking their system in one way or another - though these systems are now are at times vulnerable..
  13. with regards to -bash: /etc/X11/xorg.conf: Permission denied if your using KDE then use kwrite (or kate) & navigate to the /etc/X11/ folder then open the file. In Gnome the same thing but use 'gedit'
