hi
where can i download a delta between 11.3 rc1 and rc2? is it available?
linux_
.
Chrysantine
szymon_g: http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.3-RC2/delta/ - DVD /biarch/nonoss deltas only.
linux_
hi all, could anybody tell me how I can get enter desktop environment from command line interface?
szymon_g
oh, thanx Chrysantine
Chrysantine
linux_: startx would start the Xorg.
linux_: Are you trying to get into the GUI from a livecd?
linux_: Please talk in public.
linux_
I have only three rows : my username, current date etc...
and this panel accepts only commands like cd (name of directory...)
so, I use live CD now
Chrysantine
linux_: So you've started the livecd and it went to text only mode?
linux_
I have tried to run Xorg just now but nothing has opened yet...
no, I installed opensuse locally a month ago
I have used it without any issues since then
today, I faced with this issue
Chrysantine
linux_: Describe the issue more thoroughly.
linux_
(desktop environment has not appeared but this command line interface only) so I have re-installed system but
CLI has appeared again...
and I can't get it disappeared
should I type command 'env'
and 'DESKTOP_SESSION' then?
I have just found some info on net
but I am not 100%ly sure that this is solution to my issue
Chrysantine
I have no idea what you're trying to say
tacit
x.org failed to load dropping him to a vt?
Chrysantine
Well that sounds reasonable.
linux_
... :) desktop doesn't appear
only CLI at left corner above
when I try to open my locally installed system
I can use LINUX only from liveCD now
Chrysantine
linux_: Have you tried "Failsafe" mode?
tacit
linux_: Your x.org server failed to load. Reconfigure it.
linux_: log in as root and run "SaX2". Configure, test and reboot.
linux_: What did you do before that happened?
linux_
the same screen appears in failsafe mode
thanks for hint, tacit
I really don't think so that I have done anything special what could cause this issue
tacit
linux_: What non-special thing did you do?
linux_
by the way, CLI says that I am logged in with my username
system has collapsed suddenly (I was surfing on net)
two black rows appeared at the bottom and at the top of screen
after rebooting PC, I have provided my username and pw at logging screen
but it has re-appeared with empty fields again
I clicked on safe entry at left bottom corner
and CLI has appeared
and I can't get disappeared it
I'd like just to use my local system as KDE
tacit
linux_: Log in as root. Run SaX2
linux_
directory :\home\ my username is default in CLI
can I type this command there?
tacit
linux_: Log in as root, not as the user.
linux_
sorry for stupid question...:) but what's the command to change my user name to root?
yaloki
linux_: su -
linux_
thanks! (I have never used CLI before, you know..)
yaloki
get used to it, its almighty ;D
tacit
A more elegant weapon... for a more civilized time.
linux_
okay guys, give me a try:)
I will return yet, I think:)
tacit
Complete your training you must.
linux_
I have written down all of your hints
bye (or brb?:) )
Grommet
I am using 11.2 and it seems only root has permission to mount usb thumbdrives. how do I enable users to do the same?
Ilmehtar
its probably not a relevant question, but what GUI (if any) are you noticing this behaviour in?
nicklas_
hello, can i do a package request here?
Ilmehtar
nicklas_: Probably not, but I'm curious, what package? :)
nicklas_
Ilmehtar: pidgin-musictracker or any other plugin that works with banshee, there arent many pidgin plugins in repos
tech9iner
Grommet: heyaz palOmine.. you need to dump the default device mngr plasmoid.. google it up mate.. been many mos so i cont recall steps but another put me on to it ;]]
Ilmehtar
nicklas_: pidgin-musictracker is already available in the BuildService
nicklas_: http://software.opensuse.org/search?q=pidgin-musictracker&baseproject=openSUSE:11.2
tech9iner
Grommet: that was one silly kde4 dev's misstep IMHO.. cobbling auto mounting of plugin hw / media etc..
nicklas_
Ilmehtar: ty, but why isnt it in repos?
Ilmehtar: and will it update automatically? does one click install add repos?
Ilmehtar
nicklas_: well it is in A repo.. user javilete's personal one.. why clutter up the other repos for something not that highly desired? (You could always add a feature request to features.opensuse.org) . Yes, one click adds repo
tech9iner
Grommet: here ye gogo pally.. ;]] http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-help-here/applications/433455-how-adjust-cd-mounting-behavior.html
Grommet: gotit here.. huge time saver.. returns kde4 on 11.2 back to kde3's auto mounting behaviors ;]]..
Darryl
Is support for Subpixel Rendering integrated in 11.3 release? Or do we still need to get the subpixel-enabled freetype pkgs from repos at http://opensuse-community.org/subpixel/ (11.3 ain't there yet) ?
tian2992
Darryl, I think those repos cannot be included on the repo due to patent issues regarding TrueType
*on the distro
Darryl
tian2992: I knew there _were_ license issues (ClearType, I think), but wasn't sure they still werre in play. So we still need the 3rd party repos?
tech9iner
lots of info along lines of your query Darryl via our bot's factoids found by typing exactly here in channel /msg SUSEhelp search font
Darryl
none of which answer the question for 11.3.
tian2992
Darryl, they are due to expire on 2019
Darryl
tian2992: Thanks. So for now, with 11.3, this http://opensuse-community.org/subpixel/ is the right place to source them?
tech9iner
lol.. .2 or .3.. info is relative
Darryl
Or is there somewhere elase that actually HAS the pkgs for 11.3?
tian2992
Darryl, I'm not sure, I used that repo for a while, but it broke my text rendering on 11.2
I guess it will be updated once 11.3 comes out
Darryl
tian2992: Hm. withOUT that repo, my text rendering is broken.
tech9iner
did it work for u chumOmine Grommet ?
Grommet
nope
actually I will wait until 11.3
I've heard some ppl say it works out of the box
tian2992
Darryl, I love typography but i could not make it work...
I'll give it a shot someday
Darryl
tian2992: Yeah, if was a PITA getting all the settings found and figured out. But once done really nice.
tian2992
Darryl, what sucks the most is having expensive fonts installed, but looking kinda crappy due to the engine
Darryl
Not quite as pretty as my MacOSX disply, but darn close.
tian2992
there should be an OpenSUSE variant for countries without software patents, that would be a blast
Darryl
tian2992: Yep. I had my old, expensive, Adobe OTF font collection disk, and I was danged if I was NOT gonna get those looking good on 11.2, for the money I paid!
tian2992
Darryl, I have one by Monotype, and it works as a charm on OS X...
I still use the fonts on 11.2 as well...
Grommet
hey techniner do you know of a video player that supports nonlocal files?
so far amarok and vlc and such do not
sorry mplayer does not
amarok supports nonlocal music files
nicklas_
how does pidgin notification work in openSUSE? in other distros ive had to install pidgin-libnotify, but its not in opensuse repos? do i need it or is notification built in?
Grommet
but I can't find anything to play video files
tech9iner
Grommet: indeed.. oob would be nice reversal to working order as should b again.. hehe
yaloki
Grommet: mplayer totally does
Darryl
tian2992: Ymmv, but it'll be worth a shot again on Opensuse. Like I said, PITA. But gorgeous, especially now that OOO fully supports OTF @ all our local webapps can display @font-face .woff variants in CSS.
yaloki
Grommet: and vlc too
Grommet
why do they say sorry only local files supported when I select one?
yaloki
mplayer definitely does the job when you pass it an http URL or such
tech9iner
Grommet: nonlocale media?... wtf wouldnt vlc ?
Grommet
I dunno
lemme get the exact output from vlc
nicklas_
anyone using gnome and pidgin?
tian2992
Darryl, all my fonts look crappy on OO but, as soon as i print them on pdf they look as intended
tech9iner
rofl.. playing ketchup here.. didnt see masta yal working for you Grommet hehe
Darryl
tian2992: What version of OOO u using?
Grommet
vlc says "You can only select local files"
in a little popup
tech9iner
Grommet: i was running media thru 192.168.1.x via usb cable direct laptop to laptop few days back.. via fish:// protocol iirc
Grommet
mplayer just copies the entire file to a tmp directory then plays it
tian2992
Darryl, 3.1.1
Grommet
which isn't the worst thing ever but it takes awhile
Darryl
tian2992: 3.2 branch is required for OTF support. Switch to: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/OpenOffice.org:/UNSTABLE
Been using it in production for all our staff for many months now.
tian2992
Grommet, what happened on VLC?
Darryl, I have a really slow internet connection, so I'd rather wait for 11.3
thanks though
Darryl
np
tian2992
is it possible to disable the logo of SUSE Studio on the builds?
Grommet
it just tells me that I must select a local file
tian2992
Grommet, try on Media -> Advanced Open File
Grommet
I tried that I think the problem is that the computer doing the sharing is smb because in the advance select file tab it cays it can't open smb
I am going to try mounting the smb to a local mountpoint
tech9iner
Grommet: luck be thine lad.. ;]]
haha @ me me
forgot to asked me own question..
everyone seeing this in their ffx and/or chrome browsers mates? http://www.netindex.com/ You need to upgrade your Flash Player
Grommet
I see that sometimes tech9iner
tian2992
tech9iner, no problem here
tech9iner
tian2992: page fully loads and no such 'needed upgrade' line found?
Grommet
tech9iner: I had to switch to 32 bit flash and the wrapper thingie to make that stop
also my flash works better this way
tech9iner
11.2 is all flash current here
Grommet: ill look into it tx
Shamoun
hey guys
Grommet
tech9iner: are you using 64 bit?
tech9iner
Grommet: yes
tian2992
tech9iner, yep, no problem in here
tech9iner
Grommet: well.. 2 b clear as muddd... actually im running 64bit 11.2 yes.. but flash specific its wtf ever my daily zypper dup defaults too here
Grommet
yep you got the same prob I had hold on lemme see
and mounting the smb as a dir worked :)
I did this command after removing the 64 bit flash, tech9iner
zypper in flash-player nspluginwrapper
after that flash was good again
hehe
SiFuh!
hehe

Fede
whenever I'm required to surf the Internet from a cyber-cafe I wish I had the privacy I get when I surf from home. Depending on the situation I'm able to use OpenVPN or Squid but some times firewalls prevent this from happening. So I was wondering, is there any java web browser which I could run on my local server (maybe Apache) and which could be configured to connect to the internet from my home connection?
Dominian
er
Fede
is that a no? Dominian
Dominian
Fede: install squid at home, run on local port of machine at home, use ssh tunneling to setup a port onyour local machine and forward it via ssh to your home machine, setup your browser to use that as a proxy
Fede
yeah, that is, assuming I can change the proxy configuration on the browser. What if I can't? Some cyber-cafes are very irritating
Dominian
I always have my laptop with me
so not sure.. neve rused a cyber cafe PC
Fede
I saw a few java web browsers, I wonder if one of those could be configured to do what I want
tpadmin
My / is filling up, is there anything I can safely delete to free up room? (OpenSUSE 11.2, if it matters)
