Slackware :: XF86Audio Key's Not Working In Gnome

Aug 29, 2010

On my Acer Aspire Laptop I'm running Slackware 13.1 (current) with GSB 2.30 + Compiz. I got everything working in both KDE & Gnome. I really like that I can use KDE apps and Gnome apps together. Only, one thing I can't get to work. My volume up/down/mute keys in Gnome. In KDE they work!After a few days searching I found that to make them work in Gnome, I have to load Kmix. So my conclusion is that the actions on the XF86Audio (Raise/Lower/Mute) keys are linked to Kmix. How do I change this? I want to use the Gnome mixer in....Gnome and Kmix in ....KDE

Debian Multimedia :: XF86Audio Multimedia Keys Not Working In Squeeze

Jun 23, 2011

I finally installed Squeeze on my laptop and found out that the XF86Audio multimedia keys do not work.

When I press them, they're correctly identified by xev but they do not produce the desired effect (raise/lower/mute volume, play/pause/stop/prev/next song in media players like Sonata).

Funnily enough though, they do work in Audacious, which has its own plugin to manage XF86Audio media keys.

So it's like the action of pressing these keys is not intercepted by the system and no event is triggered.

I think this might be due to a missing package or configuration but I have no idea where to look...

Slackware :: Use Of Zenwalk GNOME Packages As GNOME Distribution

Jul 26, 2010

Recently I've read an interview at Distrowatch, where a topic was the compatibility of Slackware and Zenwalk packages. My understanding was that now they should both be used in both systems.

As Slackware doesn't feature a complete GNOME distribution, my curiosity was about the ability of Zenwalk's GNOME packages play a role there. If so, the second question is how intrusive those packages are considering Slackware 13.1.

Slackware :: Linvo 2009.1rc6 - Slackware-based LiveCD With GNOME

Jan 6, 2010

I'm happy to announce Linvo 2009.1 rc6. It's a full-featured Linux distribution with a lot of applications by default, including an office suite ( extended with plugins), a good internet browser (Firefox extended with plugins), a music player that supports music collection and a lot more - Exaile, a video player, and all the available codecs. It can open all types of file formats. It's a LiveCD, which means that you can test it without installing and after this optionally install it - it has a nice easy graphical installer.

It's the first Slackware-based LiveCD distribution with GNOME by default. It includes NetworkManager and initng in place of sysvinit. It also features accessibility tools. It is also the first release with the innovative portable applications system. This allows you to download application from the site (modules section), place it where you like, and use it. It's just a single file, no directories. You can also use this application without installing it, directly from the internet. However, after this, the speed of the application is limited by the speed of your connection, of course. Check out the "Applications" section on the website.

Besides this, you can install software with the apt-get-like system "slapt-get" and it's graphical front-end: GSlapt. It also contains src2pkg and sbopkg in case you want to compile something from source or existing SlackBuild Depfinder is included to find dependencies of packages. Click here for a guide on how to use those. I also managed to put development tools in there, like GCC, G++, svn, cvs, so on... This is a release candidate, and despite that it's OK for using. It has a bit more things to do until the release (like language selection on the boot menu), but I decided that it's important to put it here for testing.

Slackware :: Fonts For Gnome Apps In Std Slackware Install

Jan 4, 2011

I'm interested in seeing what others are doing w.r.t. fonts in a standard Slack install. The 2 main apps I use are Firefox and Thunderbird and both look fairly poor out of the box. Previously I've used a combination of gtk-qt-engine and gnome-appearance-properties ( with a gsb install ) but this doesn't always do the 'right thing'.

Slackware :: Can I Make KDE / Gnome Look Like Windows 7 In Slackware

Feb 26, 2010

You might be asking why would I want to this? I will tell you why. My wife. She has grown up using Windows. The jump from Windows XP to 7 wasn't as bad as I thought it would be for her. I just had to show her where things changed to for about 10-20 minutes and that was that.

I did a trial run with Ubuntu for about a month using Gnome and not her cup of tea. So now I did a search on the Internet and came up with a Gnome solution here is the link:

And a KDE link:

But both websites are oriented towards Ubuntu/Kubuntu. I am just wondering if this will work with Slackware???

My wife likes a speedy system almost as much as I do. She also like the Search field when you click on the Start menu in Windows 7, the taskbar at the bottom, the big red X in right hand corner of the windows.

I just hope I can go this route and change it to look like Windows 7. I will be very happy and so will my wife of course.

Slackware :: Alfa AWUS036h Rtl8187 Adapter Not Working On Slackware 13.1

Oct 13, 2010

I recently bought the Alfa AWUS036h which uses the Realtek rtl8187 chipset. I am able to load the module and connect to any network, but its almost as soon as I try to load a page the connection drops. It never stays connected for more than 30 seconds. My other computers using the same adapter in the same spot work fine, unfortunately there not running slackware. I've tried compiling the newest stable kernel and checked the rd.inet1.conf settings.

If I connect any USb to my laptop it doesn't automount, I need to manually mount it. The same case happens with CD/DVD only that I can't mount any CD/DVD even manually. Here's the output:

Slackware :: How Can I Restore It To Gnome And Add It To KDE

Mar 8, 2010

When I used KDE 4.3.1 with Slack kernel, there were no option to shutdown the computer from KDE. I always had to log off, then issue a "sudo /sbin/halt". The same goes for the reboot option.When I tried XFCE and Gnome Slackbuild on the same kernel, I noticed that there was options to reboot and shutdown. But when I compiled a new 2.6.33 kernel, it seems such options disappeared from Gnome. I didn't check XFCE.

How can I restore it to Gnome, and add it to KDE? I tried looking in the kernel config, but couldn't figure out which option is related to that.

Slackware :: Use Gnome Instead Of The Official KDE Build?

Jan 4, 2010

I was wondering on how to use Gnome instead of the official KDE build. I know I can go to the third party But not sure where to look on how to install it. If someone can direct me in the right direction that would be swell.

I am looking for a install step by step guide for Gnome. I was also curious if the Gnome version would provide me the same stability and speed as the official Slackware with KDE.

My second question is regarding the Slackbook project. I know I can get the pdf file and print it out but I was hoping for a book that can get shipped to me and when I purchase it the proceeds go to the Slackware organization.

Slackware :: Separating Gnome And XFCE DEs

Sep 24, 2010

I notice that when I create a launcher in Gnome it then appears later on my desktop when logged into xfce. I dislike the way DE's are 'bleeding' into one another this way. Does anybody have a way to separate the lists of launchers each environment possesses so I can have different icons in each? The only way I can think of off the top of my head is commenting-out icons in my xfce config file - if that is possible.

I'm after fewer icons under xfce and am happy to have the Gnome desktop fully populated with more - hope that makes sense. I'd rather not have to go through installing and setting up idesk with xfce to achieve the same result if I can avoid it. Ditto on menues. I have my Gnome menus properly tidied up, but under xfce I still have several multiple instances of, for instance, the menu-editor app. Can you 'quarantine' these from one another as well?

Slackware :: Gslapt Launcher As Root In Gnome?

Sep 16, 2010

how to get a desktop launcher for gslapt working with root privileges in Gnome? [GSB, actually].

Gslapt works fine when started from a terminal, but it'd be nicer if I could just click the icon. I've tried: # /usr/sbin/'su -c gslapt' but get: "Failed to execute child process "/usr/sbin/su -c gslapt" (No such file or directory).

I suppose I could use a script, but is there a simpler way?

General :: Special Versions Of GNOME Maintained For Slackware / Why Is So?

Apr 22, 2011

Newbie here. I'm thinking about going from Ubuntu to Slackware and I just saw on Wikipedia that there is a number of projects that maintain GNOME binaries especially for Slack. So that made me wonder, why is that needed? What if I download a bare version of Slack and then build the standard GNOME version from source? Would that produce problems?
