just installing Slackware 13.1 from the full DVD iso this weekend.
I have successfully installed everything and have started X, but I can't find the KDE Personalizer Wizard. I'd like to set it to operate more or less like Windows so I can find my way around more easily since I'm a newb.
I think the KDE Personalizer Wizard is supposed to start when I enter X for the first time, but it didn't - anyone know how I can start it?
I often struggle to fix small problems (networking, printers, graphics, etc.) because I can't remember all the cryptic sysadmin configs and tools.Is there a smart tool or wizard that can diagnose 1 or more of these areas? I'd like a tool that figures out why I can't connect to the network. Either it solves the problem or explains the issues to me.
I downloaded partition wizard to get rid of a linux partition on my hard drive. after I fixed my mbr I used partition wizard to delete the linux partition and resized c to take up the rest of the space, partition wizard is reading my c drive as unallocated and also windows is not detecting my recovery partition at all... what can I do to fix this. I fear that even though my recovery partition exists that it may be of no use to me if windows does not recognize it, and how can I format the unallocated space with out loosing all of my data?
I have received a webbook this morning and the instructions say that a wizard will allow me to set a password at first startup. This did not happen and a user called 'x' has been created and I do not know the password. How do I reset this so that I am the administrator?
I need to make a fresh new installation of KDE Fedora 11 where some partitions are formatted using XFS. The installer's partitioning wizard has no option for XFS. I've been able to load the XFS module as root (modprobe xfs) but it looks like the XFS tools are completely missing. Two of these partitions are / and /home so it'd be quite hard to do the "switch" after the installation.
I have read the FAQs at [URL] as well as the XFS thing by Colin Charles. But as I am new to Fedora I don't understand the sentence "At the installer prompt, type this ...". If the installed is the bootloader, then adding the xfs in the end of the boot line won't help. If the installer is the iconized program I see on the desktop after the end of the boot, the it's name is "liveinst" and adding the xfs option won't help.
I have looked around on the forums for this but not been able to see a similar problem. Basically Ubuntu Live CD will see the external HDD to access and see files and folders but when on the install section, where you can choose the drive to install to, the only drive listed is the internal one. This is a Dell inspiron 5100 laptop and I have installed ubuntu 9.10 onto two different pen drives that are 8gb in size but the HDD will not be listed.
I am using a live USB of 10.04 Netbook edition. Every time I boot up the Installation wizard opens. Is there a way to skip this and go directly to the gnome desktop? Figure I just need to edit some boot scripts but I dont know which one.
Can't seem to update without the Profiles wizard crashing.Will try again later this week to update the packages.I want to package most of the svn as I can.I would update the packages as much as I have time for. This wouldn't be for creating a distro from as it would have bugs.Also I'll be moving in a few months so there will be a month or more without updates.
I set up the spam wizard in Kontact/Kmail yesterday. I told it to put all the spam in the "Spam" folder. Seems the default is "Trash". Well, now it sticks everything in the "Trash" folder. Everything including standard e-mails that should go into the inbox. I've tried a few things. The program seems to be hung up somehow. Is there a way to go into a terminal and do some repairs?
I have taken a break from using Fedora, but since getting my netbook Ive decided to dual boot with Windows 7 Started (warranty purposes) and Fedora 14 with Fedora as the default boot OS. Now Ive got my home network setup as follows:
Gaming laptop, Windows 7 Pro x64, external powered USB hub with 1.5TB HD with shared folders through windows share permissions and the HP Deskjet F2430 printer
Netbook 1, my wifes netbook, Windows 7 Starter, has 100% access to the windows shares and the printer.
Netbook 2, my netbook, Fedora 14 has windows shared folder access but no printer access. In Windows 7 Starter has access to windows shared folders and printer access.
All of them are wirelessly networked through my Linksys WRTG54GS thats flashed with DD-WRT Mega firmware. The only laptop that has a hardwired connection to the printer and HD is my gaming laptop. how to go about allowing this? My printer doesnt show up in the CUPS wizard.
Kernel 18.104.22.168, GNU (Slackware 12.0). KDE 3.5.7. KMail 1.9.7
In the x.org home page, there is a link 'the xorg mailing list'. If I click on this link, then the KMail Account Wizard (window subtitle New account setup) opens and I am compelled to create a new account. But I already have one, and I send and receive mail with this account. Can it be that this behavior is induced by x.org? I don't feel like opening a second account.
I have an nfs share that mounts automatically when kde starts.
wendy@DellNB:~$ cat .kde/Autostart/mountNAS.sh #!/bin/bash mount ~/TestShare #echo "NAS Mounted"
Gimp works fine editing and saving photos from/to the nfs share. kWrite can do its thing and read/create files on the NAS. Files I create with vim are visible and editable under windows. OpenOffice however, when I try an open a file I get "file is locked by unknown user." I open as copy and try saving to the share with a different name... No Dice, error saving to share the file is created on the share but it is empty. I did some reading and found a post that said to comment a line from a file called soffice, which I cannot find.
Some FreeNX start-up troubles here, need a hand. 1) I am trying to establish a connection from my workplace PC on my workplaces's LAN to my home PC on my private LAN (LAN-to-LAN). Just typing in the public IP of the target LAN in the "Host" field gets me nowhere, as it fails to connect due to a denial at port 22 SSH - even though I've done the forwarding in my home router and punched the required hole in the local firewall of the target machine.
This resembles what I'm looking at: [URL]..2) My home PC is 64-bit Mepis and my workmachine is a 32-bit Ubuntu. Is this a problem?
I'm having problems with Kstars and would like to know the proper place to post questions or if there is a forum just for the Kstars program. I can't find much info on the net. If I remember right it worked in Ubuntu 8 but I've upgraded to the latest and some options in Kstars are not working now. In a nutshell, some of the problems are:
1: Help not working. I get....Could not Launch the KDE help center: Could not find service 'khelpcenter' 2: In telescope wizard, there is no list of telescopes. 3: I cant save my telescope information under properties.
As I'm just learning this stuff, it could be a bug but not sure, so please point me in the right direction for help. I'm running dual boot on a HP laptop. Windows XP and Ubuntu. I have reformatted the drive and installed everything new for a clean slate.
I've installed OpenOffice 3.2.1 on Linux s390x System z server after downloading the OOo_3.2.1_Linux_S390X_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz file from [URL].. I installed it using the following command rpm -ihv *.rpm. Now everything installs successfully with no errors. But when I cd /opt/openoffice.org3/program and type in soffice to start OpenOffice I see the splash screen for a second, the loading bar moving to around 33% before it crashes and shuts down with no errors or exceptions. Have tried uninstalling and installing many times with no sucess whatsoever. Last few lines of strace ./soffice added below,
I am running Ubuntu 9.04. I am using GnuCash and trying to setup on-line banking. When I try to set it up, I am getting an error message saying that I need that the external program, "AqBanking Setup Wizard" failed to run correctly. I have searched for the "AqBanking Setup Wizard" on the Internet.
I want to automoate some PPT -> PDF conversions, so I want to run openoffice in headless mode for scripting.
On my machine with X running I can start opemoffice in headless mode via
soffice -accept="socket,port=8100;urp;" -headless
This doesn't seem to work on a server with X not running.
$ soffice -accept="socket,port=8100;urp;" -headless /usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice.bin X11 error: Can't open display: Set DISPLAY environment variable, use -display option or check permissions of your X-Server (See "man X" resp. "man xhost" for details) $
The error doesnt seem to make sense as well, as the point of specifying -headless was so that I do not need X, while this command seems to look for X.
I'm on Fedora 14, and OpenOffice 3.3.0 takes a long time to open (about 30 seconds, sometimes less). It isn't a CPU or disk performance issue, it's just simply a very long delay before the program opens. It appears to be a frivolous network connection timing out. According to Wireshark, it tries to look up:
dulcimer.(none) which fails, after which it tries to look up: dulcimer.(none).mylitestream.com (dulcimer is my hostname, and LiteStream is my ISP) Is there a way to work around this bug in OpenOffice?
I just finished working on my teacher's paper, which is due to her an hour ago... For 2 hours I've been trying to find my paper anywhere on ubuntu, or my windows installation. It is nowhere, anymore. The paper took me 4 hours to type up, and I JUST saved it onto my windows installation. The desktop of my user profile, to be exact. I restarted to windows to print it off, but it wasn't on my desktop. First reaction: FFUUU, wait backup. SO I went to my backup directory of linux. Guess what: Nothing there.... Any way of gettin my work back without retyping all 8 pages?
I'm booting Puppy 5.0.1 from a CD. I want to install OpenOffice so I can view PowerPoint files.My hard drive is 40 gig with 23 gig of free space. While downloading OpenOffice the download stops and gives an error message about "Not enough Linux drive space to complete download"The hard drive is formatted as VFAT and without a CD in the drive will boot Windoze 2000.How do I give Linux (Puppy) more space to use on this hard drive?
