Reading some mails on the GIMP mail list, I ran across the procedure
to install some more fonts for not only Gimp, but the system and
StarOffice to use also. Well, I installed the fonts, went to the
shell and issued the command xset fp+ <font directory> and then the
rehash command and all fonts are there! Ok, that went well, but each
time I restart the system, I have to do it all over again? Is there
a way to make it permanent and read the new fonts like it does the
ones the system installs or is that a no-no?
end of line
xset fp+ <new font directory>
xset fp rehash

I don't remember seeing this problem on the list.
KMail print on screen is clear and most letters are
separated. When I print out a mail, some letters,
particularly the "t", the "si" and the "sk" combinations
are scrunched together with adjoining letters.
I am printing to an HP 2200D laserjet. The
typeface on screen (and on paper) is a
sans-serif font. Even on screen, it is slightly
scrunched in spots. "ri" and "ti" and "tt" and "th" are
too close together.
While attempting to stop a video playing on Macro Media Flash Player 7,
I managed to lock out everything. I could not move the mouse cursor,
the arrow keys and the rest of the kb didn't work, ctl-alt-del did nothing.
None of the function keys did anything. (The video was something downloaded
from the 'net via Firefox.) I wound up pulling the big switch, as us hams
like to say. Is there anything else I could have done?
I'm trying to put Linux to practical use, and this is the first time I've seen
10.0 crash, so it's good, but not fool-proof. (If something can be broken,
this fool will break it!)
I have a fileserver running SuSE 8.0 with 2 IDE Drives and a
SCSI RAID (RAID5). The system boots up to one of the IDE drives,
and the SCSI RAID drive runs as a mounted filesystem (/dev/md0).
(all filesystems are REISERFS).
The SCSI RAID drive has crashed (won't boot up), and I need to
recover it (repair it, through some utility).
The software does not seem to want to mount the disks, even though
the SCSI BIOS (Adaptec) recognizes the disks, and they are listed as
I tried to repair the disk(s) (with reiserfsck), but it produced an
reiserfs_open: bread failed reading block 2
reiserfs_open: bread failed reading block 16
reiserfs_open: neither new nor old reiserfs form found on /dev/md0
The literature suggested that this error message is hardware related
(either a disk is physically damaged, or maybe the RAID isn't
recognized), but again, the disks are recognized (and therefore,
so is the SCSI Card).
I tried to boot up with SuSE CD 1 in Recovery mode, but not sure
what to do there (i.e., after the root prompt - just run reiserfsck?).
Literature suggests there are plenty of tools to handle disk recovery,
and especially RAID support, I can't find reference to them
The installation of the RAID was trivial (using the YAST2
partitioning GUI window on startup), and yet recovery seems to be a
mystery. This can't be right.
Does anyone know where there are "decent" and "usable" recovery tools?
OR ... does anyone know what "specifically" to do in this case? Can
I re-partition without formatting, and recover the existing data?
Any help is appreciated - I'm sure I'm missing something "obvious", but
can't find "obviously" what to do in the literature, docs, etc.

I'dd like to know what the following files in the directory /boot are about.
Can anyone give me a clue or point me to some documentation?

We received a copy of 9.1 today at work and I have installed this on three
machines with dissapointing results.
The first machine was an IBM Thinkpad R40 with a Centino 1600 CPU. This
machine worked fine and the performance was great.
The second and third machines were unusable, KDE takes serveral minutes to
start, attempting to start YAST for instance will take about a minute for the
SU box to appear and then another minute for YAST to load. I get similar
results for all applications I have tried, in all instances the system
performs like a P100 with very little RAM.
The machines that run slowly are both Athlon XP based machines, one being an
Athlon XP 2400 with 1GB of DDR RAM on an ECS Elite motherboard.
The second machine is an XP2000 with 512MB of PC3200 RAM on a PCChips
I have applied all the updates with no effect.
Any ideas would be appreciated, I've had to switch back to 9.0 as the whole
9.1 experience is unuseable has anybody got any ideas?

Yes there are legal reasons why SuSE cannot have DVD playback of those
pesky movies, but what be done? Would it be too expensive for
Novell/SuSE to license a codec?
Seems like there is a new copyright law in Germany that has made PackMan
be more cautious.
No one has made a player for Linux that is 100% legal, is it due to

Thanks Fred, that's exactly what I did, installed OOo 1.1Beta. Works
smooth as silk if I stop Setiathome, but remains unusuable if seti or
anything cpu intensive is running. This in itself isn't so bad, except
that I didn't have this problem under 8.1 and 8.0, where I had seti
runing with nice=1 all the time and OOo was working smoothly.
Just trying to understand this
I can't seem to get any of the Screen Savers to start in Gnome, though
they are all working in KDE... or are they only for KDE?
They are in the Gnome menu:system Screen Savers.
Thanks (i know they aren't so important)
I am using KDE 3.0.x not yet 3.1 and SuSE Linux 8.1 .
I have written a web enabling database application
with PHP4. The users use the application with internet
My boss said that his sellers may only use the
internet browser for the database application.
So how can I lock everything in KDE 3.0.x ?
I want after the user login, the mozilla will be
I also want if they close the mozilla than the user
will be automatically kicked out (log out).
Is it possible with KDE 3.0.x? Do I have to upgrade
Thank you very much in advance.
