Ubuntu :: Kstars - No List Of Telescopes In Telescope Wizard And Can't Save Information Under Properties
Jul 2, 2010
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 got a nice Neximage webcam for my Nexstar Telescope for Xmas so I'm trying to get it working with kstars and INDI (Instrument Neutral Distributed Interface). I'm using opensuse 11.3 (tried on both 64 bit on PC and 32 bit on my laptop) and Gnome. I've installed libindi and kstars and as many dependencies as I could find but it seems that no matter what I do I can't get any telescope drivers to appear in the device manager.
I have a Elo AccuTouch 2216 USB touchscreen that seems automatically supported by a clean install of Ubuntu 9.04.
However, to actually use it correctly, I need to run some xinput commands to invert the Y axis and calibrate:
These properties are shown by xinput list-props and documented as properties in the evdev Xorg input driver man page.
My questions is - where can I configure or save these settings so I don't have to ever enter again? On older versions of Ubuntu for serial touchscreens I'd add to xorg.conf, but that seems to be depreciated and these are listed as properties instead of options.
I am new to OPEN SUSE. I installed 11.4 without any problems. It is working fine. I did Multimedia install with oneclick option. All the updates were done. Today while going thru forums FAQ, I saw repositories list and their priorities. When I checked my repositories in YAST, there was no PACKMAN so added the PACKMAN repository. I noticed in Software Manager there is Upgrades OpenSuse-release 11.4-1.8 - 11.4-1.9! What does this mean?
I have some japanese music files stored on a flash drive that the titles of which are in japanese originally. While in the flash drive, when I go to Properties -> Audio, the title is written in japanese. It does not allow me to edit the file, no matter what permissions I have on it, therefore I can't change the name to english. So, I tried Rhythmbox instead, and transfered the file there. I could change the name, however there is STILL a huge problem.
I have around 300 japanese music files, all of which have to be renamed into english. I did all this for all of them in Rhythmbox, and clicked "quit" when I was done. When I came back to transfer the files to my MP3 player like usual, I opened Rhythmbox, and...
ALL OF THE FILES WERE STILL IN JAPANESE! It didn't save any of the work I did on editing them. But, I calmed down and thought "oh, you can save playlists! I am sure that if I save them on one, it will keep the edits!" I did this, and it saved nothing. It took me 2 hours to finish the renaming, just to find out that it can't save information edits at all.
I'm trying to set up my router, with tomato firmware, to save the bandwidth usage information. One of the 'save history' choices is "CIFS" ... I'm lost as to how to create this save area..anyone able to give me a link to a 'how to' ...or if you've done it, perhaps a step by step?
In Document Viewer, I can click on the fields and type in them, but after spending about 2 hours writing descriptions of courses, I saved it and... it closed the document I was working on, and loading the document I saved resulted in empty fields that could no longer be edited at all - clicking on them did nothing - it looked like a blank form, except it was also broken.
Is there any way I can actually fill in this form...
Since Fedora isn't a rolling release distro like I'm used to, I was wondering if there was a way to save a list of installed packages to make the next upgrade easier. I'm eagerly waiting for FC15, but still on FC14, and I would like to know if there's a way to export a file that yum can reference to reinstall what program titles I already have installed.
I have a dual-boot windows and Suse linux 11.1 setup. I can save and restore a linux image. Trying to save an image of Windows results in Partimage freezing at the "NTFS Information" window before the "save partition to image file." I have two SystemRescue CDs of versions 1.2.2 and 1.2.3 I have two computers one with Windows 2000 and one with Windows XP I have defragmented the partitions several times over. Users are told that use with "NTFS is experimantal". Several up-beat webpage tutorials also mention this but go on to say how marvellous it works for them. Naturally, such sites do not mention problems. This is the province of the forums. I have found nothing that relates to my problem though. Hence my post appealing for any guidance on offer.
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'm trying to write a program which would get information from a webpage and display the information on my desktop sort of like a widget. I kind of remember there being something like this already made, but for the life of me I can't remember what it's calledDoes anyone know?
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 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.
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 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.
