Magerlab, I thought Opera was starting to get bloated - especially when you consider that around 1.5Mb of mozilla libs are needed for the flashplayer plugin. Crying or Very sad

Thanks!

Henry, the fix for Clipman is a simple one. It is looking for libexpat.so.0 and cannot find it. Open up a terminal in /usr/lib and link libexpat.so.0 to libexpat.so.1 i.e. ln -s libexpat.so.1 libexpat.so.0

As for Virtualbox I should have a pet for 3.2.6 uploaded soon - just testing now. Wink

PostPosted: Fri 23 Jul 2010, 23:41    Post subject: Now for the hard part - SOLVED  

I was (am) excited by QNop. I'm still using the Nop that evolved over the years, and it does everything I need flawlessly. It's on the same hard drive as QNop and shares the same data files. I suppose I should leave well enough alone, but it seems about time for a catchup job. Earlier today I wasn't sure, but having sorted out some things today, yes, QNop is excellent!

It's fun to work with, and is superior in a number of areas. As gray will remember it took me a lot of time and help to perfect my Nop. Here we go again with QNop. I'm a little baffled about which packages work with it. One assumes the -q ones do, and I always search for them first.

Gnome-MPlayer is elegantly designed, just right.

The easy part was getting most things working, and getting it all tricked out as I like, suppressing all those things I don't want to see (or use). Setting up keyboard shortcuts, etc.

EDIT: But I've spent a day or two trying to get Gnupg working in Thunderbird. Also, I get this in Thunderbird:
"OpenGpg Alert, Enigmail:Enigmime service not available. To permanently avoid this alert, either fix the problem or uninstall Enigmail using the OpenPgp->preferences menu" That's a new one on me - Enigmail works fine in my other system.

But I decided I'd spent enough time on this and uninstalled Enigmail. I can easily enough decrypt occasional emails in the terminal. Anyway, the accountant handles most such mails in Eudora Smile

Thanks for listening.

The locations on the desktop, of the icons for the partitions...
Are not good.

How should I move these to preferred locations?
When I try to move an icon by drag 'n drop...
When I drop it...
It just moves back from where it came. Sad Confused

Just one little matter. I've noticed that several distros/apps don't like 'combo' CD-R&W/DVD-R drives. A man of your calibre, gray, may be able to fix this?
Otherwise, it's purring along - oh, sorry, barking along.

And, something dodgy with Firefox - gives all sorts of flicker, dropping out and other spurious behaviours regradless of Xorg/XVESA. Ignore my previous advocacy of Opera, but really that browser, (maybe also Chrome?) now seems to the next big thing since professional criminals are so actively hitting FF as well as their longer target of IE.

Subject description: "a less quirky layout"
 

Good morning,

Here's the way I have organized the desktop. Very conventional. And why not?

http://henrystrobel.com/linux.htm

EDIT - It's all working and in use except for VirtualBox, which I just noticed gray had posted for Quirky. I'm downloading it now.

Regards to all, and thanks to gray!

Henry

PostPosted: Sat 24 Jul 2010, 17:21    Post subject: VirtualBox in Quirky 1.2  

I downloaded the new VirtualBox .pets and installed them (in /opt/).

Oracle VM VirtualBox appears in the menu. Space decreased by about 68Mb.

But it doesn't start. I note that I already have a GuestAdditions.iso from Nop in /mnt/home/. Also a 3Gb win2k.vdi.

It's been a while since I set up that .vdi. Nearly forgot about it. It's been completely trouble free. Can it be reused?

It looks like time for a weekend break . . .

Henry,

You jumped the gun a bit mate. Just re-uploaded the pet.

To fix your problem try the entering the depmod-FULL command in the terminal and then re-start the computer.

VB depends on SDL and OpenGL.

Have you installed an SDL pet from the quirky repo ?

For OpenGl you need either the mesa pet or if you have an NVIDIA card then my NVIDIA pet includes OpenGL.

Discovered that it's possible to drag 'n drop desktop icons to certain locations but not to others.
Seems each icon has some kind of invisible force field around it that occupies quite a big area.
Hence the icons will only go to locations that are quite widely spaced.
e.g. They are about 1.25 inches up from the taskbar and 1 inch separation from each other.
That spacing seems to me to be too wide. [I have 12 partition/drive icons right now]

You can go into the ROX options menu and change this.. I cant' remember exactly where, but you can change the spacing to 'fine', which is much less annoying!

Dont think so sc0ttman......... NOP uses XFCE + Thunar desktop and filemanager, not Rox. In the latest XFCE you can right click on the desktop, uncheck 'keep aligned', and then put the icons where you want, as in Mint, but not available in this version.
