I've been trying to solve this problem off and on for a couple of
months with no luck. Googl and web searches have only turned up a
couple of posts that were remotely similar and w/ no solutions so
here it is.
2 users on this machine have no problems setting up kscreensavers,
if I create a new user that user can also set up their screensaver.
The problem is that 1 existing user on the machine has no access to
the kde screensavers. She can open kcontrolcenter, click on the
screensaver module and the module window appears but no
screensavers are shown in the list or preview portions of the
window. All other users can choose kscreensavers using this method
so it's not an install problem.
As I said before, If I create a new user the screensaver module
works. If I copy this users /.kde directory to my wifes home folder
(the user that can't use the kcreensaver module) the screensaver
module still doesn't work.
From this it seems like a permissions problem, but since all users
have basically the same permission setups and are members of the
same groups I have no idea what the permissions problem could be.
I've rooted around in the ~/.kde directory and found nothing
unusual. As a matter of fact it is possible to hand edit the
~/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc file and get a functioning
screensaver, but this is not really an acceptable solution for my
wife (the user in question) though.
Suse 9.2 kde 3.5.1 (currently, but the problem has existed since 3.4
Has anyone seen this problem? Any ideas
I have Suse 10.0 with KDE 3.4 installed, with all the
trimmings for MP3's and DVD's.
I can play previously recorded (dare I mention by Windows) MP3's,
installed on hard disk, no problem with Amarok and XMMS.
Just wanted to be clear about this!
I wanted to rip some more tracks to encode to MP3, so fired up
All went well, the tracks ripped and encoded successfully (I thought)
using the Lame encoder.
Fired up Amarok, and tried to point it at the newly written tracks.
Error message "Cannot find media, or file not readable"
Tried Xmms, nothing, not even an Error message.
Rechecked Amarok and XMMS with previously recorded MP3's, plays them
with no problems.
Tried again to rip the tracks with KaudioCreator, and Lame encoder, also
tried with oggenc encoder.
Neither of these work at all. Same message from Amarok "Cannot find
media or file not readable"
I should point out that the stand-alone RealPlayer10 has no problem
playing these new tracks, so I start to think there may be a problem
with both Amarok and Xmms.
I then fired up GRip, with the Lame encoder, and although slower, ripped
and encoded the same tracks.
Success!! Tracks played in Amarok and Xmms with no problems at all.
Therefore, somewhere in my KAudioCreator there is a problem.
Although everything indicates the tracks are ripped and encoded in
KAudioCreator, Basically the tracks will not play at all in Amarok or
XMMS, but the stand-alone RealPlayer10 will play them.
All the above done with GUI, not command-line.
As stated above, all the relevent codecs are installed, otherwise I
should not be able to play previously recorded MP3's at all.
I have checked all the file properties, and they are the same on the
playable track and the non-playable track.
What on earth is KAudioCreator doing to these tracks when encoding them,
so that they won't play?
I have Googled, but found nothing similar to this problem.
Silly questions time:- Does GRip use the same Lame encoder as
KAudioCreator? If so, then I cannot accuse Lame of being faulty.
I see that GRip uses CDParanoia as well, should KAudioCreator use this also?
There is an option to set the encoder priority time, at the moment it is
set to normal, should I increase this to high?
Is there some magic incantation to make KAudioCreator behave itself?
I admit to being totally baffled by this!
It looks like GRip will be getting my business until I can resolve this
Sorry for the long mailing.
Does anyone know of a plugin to Konqueror, which parses the Document source
and performes actions based on that?
Hmm, perhaps not so clear what i mean... so an example:
open a webside that contains VBscript (which ofcourse will not run :), and in
the VB code is a link to a document, e.g.:
(if I feed the string "\\servername\path\path\xxxx.doc" into Konqueror, it
will open the document...)
What I need is a "button" that when pressed, it will parse through the
Document source, finds strings that I have defined, and does actions upon
them as I have defined...
Has anyone seen anything like that?

If the system tray is in a kicker panel which is on the top right of the
screen, one icon belonging there is always displayed on the top left of the
I test with moving the panel from the top right to the bottom right. This
fixes the problem. Can anyone confirm it?
Also, I moved the panel from the bottom left to the top right. It was set to
autohide. But it came out from autohide only when I moved the mouse to the
bottom left (previous position) instead of the top right (current position).
Similarly, if I move the panel from top right to top left, I need to take my
mouse to the top right to make the panel come out from autohide on the top
Can anyone else confirm this so I can report a KDE bug?

I have amaroK 1.3.7 with KDE 3.5.0 now. A few updates ago (2 or 3 months)
amarok stopped contacting music brainz to get meta-info for my mp3 files. It
Whe I klick the music-brainz button I just get the message 'Das Stück wurde in
der MusicBrainz-Datenbank nicht gefunden.' ('The title couldn't be found in
the MusicBrainz database!'). That message appears very quickly, it looks like
the database is either not configured or amaroK just doesn't try to connect
libmusicbrainz-2.1.1-6 is installed.

Yes, it is a mini-pci card on the mobo. What make the "centrino" is a combination of mini-pci card, intel mobo, and (I forgot what else, but I think it is the intel mobile processor). At any rate, if your laptop has a slot on the mobo for a mini-pci, you can google using your laptop + mini-pci netcard. My laptop was a barebones Asus M3N that I put together myself because I didn't want all the Microsoft fluff that comes with new laptops.
My broadcom card is a Buffalo 54G. Check their website for the current drivers or write to Linuxant Support and they will help you get it going under their driver. I have had great success when SuSE broke something getting them to do custom workarounds. The price of the driver is under $30.00, I believe, but well work it, with the support you get plus lifetime driver updates as long as you card company has an agreement with them.
I have had good luck with Linksys PCI cards out of the box with SuSE. I also have used Linuxant (not free, but free trial) drivers for my Broadcom card and it just works. I have intel 2200 built in now, so I haven't plugged in the Broadcom (Buffalo 54G) card in some time. Netgear PCI cards also work.
