I have been trying to install fonts from my Windows partition using KDE
Control Center (I had done it before but then had to remove linux for some
reason) but I get the message "ERROR: Could not open font"
What may be the reason?
p.s. what is the easiest way of reinstalling all the fonts?
I'm currently downloading Suse 8.1, but before I install my
PC I'd like to be sure that the download is complete. Is
the number of files of this distro known? Or any other way
Does anyone have a ready reckoner with the splash on 8.0 ? I tried
changing the images for splash - and yes, sure, there is a Laetitia Casta
at my console [plus top running at tty1, the same, in a corner. Moved it
too - so that she looks good.].
But seems that not all images can be used. I was able to determine that
jpg images version 1.01 with aspect 1x1 were most likely to succeed - else
you would get an error<9> at splash time and all the splash would produce
is tux - which has a bit less charisma and charm compared to Laetitia for
me :-) although my chances of landing at Antarctica are more than my
chances of landing Laetitia :8
So has anyone else tried it too? Are there any guidelines for as to WHAT
may be used for splash, and what not? [I admit I have not googled on it

Using Moneydance off the 8.0 cd's. I may have screwed up by updating the
thing, now it won't let me enter any more transactions. Or perhaps it doesn't
make any difference that I upgraded..either way..do I really have to buy a
license to continue ?
Thank you for your time.
Well just do that. Put the out put into /etc/rc.d/boot.local.
In my case it says:
# I2C adapter drivers
# I2C chipdrivers
In your case it may be something totally different.
Check than if you have the right module option in
Whenever I install gkrellm after a new installation I reboot.
After reboot, gkrellm will give you the display.
Now you right click on gkrellm and finalize the display.
Put cpu in front of the cpu temp. and proc (I think it was)
in front of the system temp. Same for the speed of the fans.
You can now refine the whole setup with max and minimum
for all values.

Hi all -
I submitted the following bugs to KDE, but I'm wondering if anyone has any
insight from a SuSE perspective?
BUG # 1 - KMail won't die.
On a newly-installed Suse Linux 8.1 system with KDE 3.0.3 and KMail 1.4.3,
KMail fails to shut down correctly on exit. Whether I exit with the "X" box
or through the File menu, a child KMail process continues running on my
Compact-Folders-On-Exit is DISABLED, so this is not related to those bugs.
This occurs whether I check mail or not, so this is not related to the POP
Even if I just start KMail, and immediately quit, the process stays there.
The process is killable using killall, or the normal signal 15 kill, and it
does not appear to use any CPU time, it just sits there... but because it's
there, KMail cannot be restarted until that process is killed.
I notice that kdeinit is leaving phantom kio_pop3 and kio_smtp processes
around, too, but even if there are no such processes, KMail's child still
BUG #2 - KDEInit doesn't die.
On a fresh load of Suse 8.1 using KDE 3.0.3, I'm noticing problems with
kdeinit's process management.
kdeinit child processes - especially smtp, pop3, and http processes, seem to
stay in the process table even after konqueror or kmail are completely
The kdeinit parent process - and sometimes one or more children - stay running
even after I log out. They stay running even if I kill the X server
manually, or shut the X server down completely, having already logged out.
During the logout process, kdeinit can take a long time (10 seconds or more)
to terminate the X server and shut itself down even partially.
This problem did not exist under Suse 8.0/KDE 3.0.1.
I saw another bug similar to this about KDE 2.2.1, but this appears to be a
new problem in 3.0.3
I have recently acquired a new (old) server that came with a Compaq DLT Mini
Library. The library has room for 15 tapes, and has a pair of 35/70 DLT
drives inside it, along with a bar code reader (which I will probably never
use). Having spoken to a Compaq support person, it seems that the drive is
a Manatee or Manatee 2, if that helps. A search for this on the Compaq site
yields no results, although there is a reference to it on the Arcserve site
listing it as a supported device for their products.
I am trying to decide which avenue to follow for this device. I would like
to either use it as a back-up device or as a near-line storage device. If
it could do both simultaneously, that would be awesome, but I think that's
My question is, does anyone know of any freely available utilities that
would help with setting the device up as near-line storage ? I have found a
few commercial offerings out on Google, and Freshmeat drew a blank, too. I
can't spend a great deal of money on this as it is a home machine. I'd like
to use it get our large collection of MPEG and MP3 files off the hard drives
and free up some space.
Below is part of my fstab. I can't get the deff. of my usb card reader
right. The error I get is that there's no file system specified. Thanks
for any assistance.
