#1 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [SOLVED]How do I get accented letters? » 2012-08-17 20:59:24

The only way I know to accomplish a similar thing in the TTY is to use Emacs and

M-x set-input-method

to set an input method where you can easily form accents (latin-1-prefix works well).  With that IM, you can just type 'a to get an accent, for example.  HTH!

Let me clarify: I can read from the disk, but I cannot write to it.

#3 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Use rewritable CD as jumpdrive » 2012-07-24 18:14:20

I found out that Vista uses something called the Live File System to achieve this:  My question is: since Microsoft is still using the UDF format, why doesn't it work properly in Linux?  Is there no support for UDF 2.5 in Linux yet?

#4 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Smplayer not working » 2012-07-23 20:05:04

I'm assuming the file /home/sddhrthrt/videos/movies/Sample.avi doesn't exist and was used simply to see what the output of mplayer was?  That aside, the lirc error should not prevent you from viewing the video - it just means (as it states) that you won't be able to use your (nonexistent) remote control with it.  If you could play a file that exists from the terminal and give us the output, we can see what the matter is.

I believe I get similar errors in Audacity, but Audacity still works perfectly.

1) Are you using PulseAudio?

2) Please post your /etc/asound.conf

3) Does audacious/cmus still play the file?

I don't actually use a GUI anymore (pretty much) and I think I know what the problem is (just for posterity).  I think if wicd-client is started before the daemon, it brings up this message.  I'm not sure if that's correct because it's been a long time since I tried wicd-client, but I think that's what the problem was.

#8 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Easy dual monitor support? » 2012-07-19 17:19:33

If you have an Nvidia card, I suggest installing nvidia-settings (I'm assuming you already have installed the Nvidia driver, which you will also need).  nvidia-settings allows you to set up multiple monitors to your heart's content.  I would suggest setting them up as different X screens rather than using TwinView - the latter never really worked for me (although you can try it - it might work out better for you).  Just my 2 cents smile

Hey guys!

I just had a quick question.  In Windows (at least in WIndows 7), you can use a rewritable CD like a jumpdrive - put it in and copy files to it - the files will be written as normal, but the disk won't be made write protected.  In Linux, when I put that same CD in, I can copy stuff from the CD, but I can't copy anything *to* the CD.  I was wondering if

1) I can copy stuff to the CD without having to format it every time.

2) I can set up a CD in a similar way.

Thanks in advance!

Just a note: installing a huge number of fonts does have an impact on Inkscape startup times (as it currently does not cache the font list)

#11 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [SOLVED]Bottom of the screen missing » 2012-06-15 14:14:39

I think the main problem is that every window assumes a minimum vertical size.  However, netbooks don't have that minimum size.  To work around this problem, you can press Alt and click and drag on the window - that will let you move the window so that you see the "Ok" and "Cancel" keys.

#12 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Browser Problem [ SOLVED ] » 2012-06-05 18:19:11

Which version of iceweasel are you using?  You should try using to see if you can update your Iceweasel to the most current version (it might help).

#13 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Browser Problem [ SOLVED ] » 2012-06-05 18:12:19

Hmmm....I got the site to work (yeah, I registered just to see if the game works)...just a thought...

#14 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » Cannot access hard drive » 2012-05-10 23:35:28

Try the following:

sudo mkdir /media/1tb-harddrive-1
sudo mkdir /media/1tb-harddrive-2
sudo mkdir /media/1tb-harddrive-3
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/1tb-harddrive-1
sudo mount /dev/sda2 /media/1tb-harddrive-2
sudo mount /dev/sda3 /media/1tb-harddrive-3

I mounted all three partitions since I'm not sure of the one you want.  If this helps, we can figure out if you want to automount it etc. etc.

#20 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » need help deciding on repos - sort of noob » 2012-04-10 02:51:00

Let me or others here know if you need help configuring it.  I think there might be a guide in the forums/wiki, but I'm not sure...

#22 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » [SOLVED] Stable --> Sid, Have I Missed Anything? » 2012-04-04 01:08:06 is pretty awesome with keeping up to date with the latest version of Iceweasel, whether you would like the current released version, aurora, or beta.

#24 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » synaptic and sudo help please[SOLVED] » 2012-03-16 18:41:41

Can you give us the exact code you used to add yourself to lpadmin?  Unless you used both the -a and -G switches, it removes you from all other groups other than the ones specified.

#25 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » mozilla-vlc-plugin gone... » 2012-03-10 05:24:21 far as I can see, mozilla-plugin-vlc still exists....
