OpenSUSE :: Porting KDE Settings To New PC?

Mar 23, 2010

I've got two laptops (a Dell and an Acer), one for work, the other for home. Both run openSUSE 11.1 64-bit and use KDE 4.4.

Is it possible to copy the settings on one machine to the other? The desktops are pretty similar, but not quite the same - and I can't remember what I did to the one I prefer to get it that way.

Obviously, the underlying hardware is different, but I am hoping that the OS takes care of that.

OpenSUSE :: Sharing Of Chromium Settings / Share The Browsers And Email Settings?

Sep 28, 2010

I have a triboot windows suse 11.3 stable and suse 11.3 factory pc, I would like to share the browsers and email settings between the suse stable and factory, I succeed with thunderbird and firefox moving the /home/.thunderbird and /home/.mozilla in an ext3 shared partition and linking these in the respecive /homes, I found that there isn't a /home/.chromium folder, I found probably /usr/lib64/chromium could be the same as /home/.mozilla for firefox, but I don't know if is secure or can damage my system to move this in a ext3 partition and then link this to the respective /usr/lib64/chromium, /usr/lib64/chromium has root owner, root group, visible and modifiable for root and only visible for group and other.

OpenSUSE Install :: Saving System Settings (yast Settings)

Apr 1, 2011

Is there a way I can save system settings and have yast revert to a config file in case I ever need to reinstall the system again? I hate having to configure the firewall, runlevels, samba shares, samba workgroup, apparmor, and all the other junk after every install. It's not like I install often, but should suse 11.5 or 12 roll out, I'd like it to be a snappy upgrade.

Fedora :: Porting Desktop Changes / Customizations?

Mar 6, 2010

First thing I do when I install fedora is to customise a few things: default font sizes, number of workspaces (an their names), icons on the gnome panels etc. I was wondering if there is a way that I could just copy some file from my old install to the new one that would save me doing this manully each time. I think the main things I need are customisations done in System->Preference->Appearnece and customisations to the GNOME Panels

Fedora Installation :: Porting 9.04 Xorg To F13?

Jul 7, 2010

My problem is I own an HP2133 with via graphics. These drivers are very poorly supported, both open-source and proprietary drivers F13 runs quite nice on that machine, but playback of videos or flash lacks much perfomance.Proprietary drivers are only provided for Ubuntu and that only for 9.10 by VIA until know. With these drivers Ubuntu 9.10 is able to playback flash/videos quite good. But Ubuntu (9.10) brings a few annoying bugs, which do not seem to be fixed, that is the thing I do dislike with this ditstro. I pushed my luck and tried these drivers with F11/F12, but they did not work due to differences in xorg version. In F10 it was possible to use 8.04 VIA drivers, but F10 has EOL and is besides flash playback considerably slower than later Fedora releases.

So I thought using alien or similar tools to convert the xorg packages from Ubuntu 9.10 into rpms and install these to a F13 release.... (Like downgrading to an older xorg like it was necessary in F9 for ATI cards ...) As the VIA drivers did not work with earlier version of Fedora, I had the idea porting Ubuntu's xorg to Fedora that way.Before I start spending a lot of time on this, I would like the freaks and neerds around here, if this to your opinion could have any chance of success.

Fedora Installation :: Chance Porting Ubuntu's 9.04 Xorg To F13?

Programming :: Porting Serial Port Program From Windows?

Jan 8, 2009

I bought a set of 3 laser sensors and it came with a software and its C++ source code for windows to receive the lasers info through the serial port. Since the entire project is running on Linux, I need to port the windows code to Linux. At the present moment, I already can receive the data from each of the 3 sensors, but the info is coming concatenated! Tracking down the original windows code, I found that it is probably happening cause I didn't ported these lines to my Linux version:

Code:

COMMTIMEOUTS CommTimeouts;
[...]
CommTimeouts.ReadIntervalTimeout = 2;

[code]....

I've searched already about how to specify the serial port timeouts on Linux, but didn't find a solution. how to port these lines to Linux or maybe where to find more info about how to set serial port timeouts on Linux?

Ubuntu Installation :: Porting A Game Engine From Visual Studio To GCC?

Sep 29, 2010

I am a software developer, presently porting a game engine from Visual Studio to GCC. I'm working on LTS 10.04. The project uses C++ lambdas, and I really would like to keep it this way. Therefore, I need GCC >= 4.5 to compile it.

I wouldn't like to reinstall entire OS, or to have to manually update this single program every time. Is there an option to update it from 10.10 repositories, pointing out, that I need only this package (and it's dependencies)? Or is there any PPA that does the trick for me?

Generally, the entire packaging system of Ubuntu rocks, as long as I can find up-to-date PPAs of all packages I need to have in recent versions (like mono).

General :: Porting WiFi Drivers - Insmod RTMP Error

Jul 28, 2011

I am still new to porting wifi drivers. I am currently porting Ralink RT5370 driver, no problem with the compilation but when I execute insmod operation I got a lot of errors regarding RTMP. This is a part of the error I got:

rt5370sta: Unknown symbol rausb_buffer_free
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOsFreeSpinLock
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOsPktHeadBufExtend
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOSTaskNotifyToExit

rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOSTaskInit
rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOsAtomicInit

insmod: can't insert '/home/rt5370sta.ko': unknown symbol in module or invalid parameter
Based on the some forum that I've read, adding the MODULE_LICENSE("GPL") is one of the solution. I did add it inside usb_main_dev.c and recompile but I still get the same errors.

OpenSUSE :: Set Default Settings For New Users?

Apr 14, 2011

I have about 5 users for our desktop computer, 1 adult, 3 kids and me (I don't count as an adult ).

There are some settings I want to have each of the environments default to, where they can then change them as they wish on their own.

Instead of setting them one-at-a-time, is there a way to modify the settings on the template of what goes into a user's /home directory when they are created?

Examples:
Set it so when I add a person to the system theirdefault browser is set to Firefox starting home page is to our local server Open/Libre Office defaults to MS Office formats And others, less important ones like their pictures are placed in a centralized directory, not their own ~/Pictures.

After this initial setting, they are able to change any and all of these settings on their own, but to have these as default helps me set up their environments to get them started.

OpenSUSE Install :: Migrate KDE 11.2 Settings To 11.3?

Jul 16, 2010

I installed 11.3 as a "fresh" install (not upgrade) into a second partition, so now I have both my current 11.2 and the new 11.3 as a dual boot.

I'd like to migrate my old KDE (4.4.3) settings to the new 11.3 (KDE 4.4.4) installation, most importantly KMail and its archived mail folders. My plan was to copy the kmailrc file from the ~/.kde4/share/config/ folder and overwrite the default kmailrc that's on 11.3 and then replace the ENTIRE ~/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail/ folder on 11.3 with the one on 11.2 (including the hidden files and folders).

My questions are:

1. would this work, or am I missing other files and folders.

2. Would I be better off just copying the entire ~/.kde4 folder from 11.2 partition to 11.3?

OpenSUSE Install :: Getting 11.4 MS4 With All Brand New Settings?

Dec 4, 2010

Not sure if this is correct place to ask this but here go:I have the following setup today:

sda openSUSE 11.2
sdb openSUSE 11.4 ms3
sdc openSUSE 11.3 (production)

sdb is my test environment. sda is still around since its the only way I can power down my system. 11.3 and 11.4 hang on power down. (Another subject) I have the 11.4 ms4 dvd made and I want to install to sdb without carrying over any of the settings. In the past I've just formatted and installed but the settings for the user and root were saved. Want to do a total fresh install. Reason for not carrying over setting is problems with Akonadi not starting (tried all the trouble shooting tips), and Vbox freezing keyboard and mouse when installing XP.

Ubuntu :: Change File Permission Settings To Force All Documents To Inherit Parent Document Settings?

Aug 21, 2011

i have a computer with 3 users on it, and a folder using samba that everyone on the network has access to. Lets say that, the folder is stored in /etc/sharedfolder. What happens is, when user1 puts a folder in it, then logs off, user 2 attempts to modify it and fails, because permission is set to 755, and they are not in the same group. (even if they were, it should still need to be 775) Anyway, my current solution is, every 5 minutes a crontab changes permission like so: chmod 777 -R /etc/sharedfiles && chown useradmin:superadmin -R /etc/sharedfiles Which works, but seeing as there is getting close to a gig in there, this is a bad solution, as it eats up the computers resources. Solutions that i think might work:

1) create a script that only changes permissions that need be changed.
2) change file permission settings to force all documents to inherit parent document settings
