Wiki changes

Postby akshunj on Mon Mar 03, 2008 3:00 pm

With the arrival of Mint KDE Daryna, I'd like to mention some changes on the wiki side of things. There's an entire section exclusively devoted to Mint KDE. And although it's not much to look at right now, I would like to invite everyone to help contribute to this potentially huge community resource. I've already put up a couple of tips & tricks of my own... :-)

Would anybody be interested in any of my stuff? If so I'll try to clean some of it up. Of course most of my stuff is not necessarily KDE specific.

Wish list of desirable topics you would like covered?

I had originally thought I would be unable to contribute as I had planned, due to some rather serious problems I'd had with Mint KDE originally.

However, after initially giving up and reinstalling MintGnome, I decided to reinstall MintKDE and hack at it till I got it right and running, because I prefer KDE and think MintKDE is wonderful, and I think I have 99.9% of my problems solved, so I'll probably be able to begin contributing heavily as I had wanted to. The bonus is that I now may also be able to help other users who have had similar problems :D

Now, I just have to remember everything I did :lol:

The Mint KDE community is welcome to copy, edit and use any of the wiki articles in the Klikit-Linux wiki. Many of them may need to be edited, and some screenshots replaced, etc., but there are many good how-tos in the wiki and most would be just as useful to Mint KDE users as they are to Klikit-Linux users. While I know that it is possible, (easy actually), to copy and paste entire wiki articles, screenshots and all, from one pbwiki to another, I'm not sure if the same is true with your wiki, as it does not appear to be a pbwiki. In any case, the Klikit-Linux Wiki is available for your perusal here:

http://klikit.pbwiki.com/

I am anxiously awaiting the release of the Hardy-based version of Mint KDE. I currently have Daryna installed on my testing partition, and it is wonderful. Very nice work, guys, but unfortunately, it suffers from the same Gutsy core problems as the most recent Gutsy-based Klikit RC versions. In my view, Gutsy is fatally flawed and will never produce a fully functional OS, but I have high hopes for Hardy. Ben

I'm going to install Hardy-Kubuntu on sda3 to tide me over until Elyssa-KDE. I love Daryna-KDA, but I cannot accept Amarok 1.4.8 due to the fact that my iPod is a 6gen Classic and not supported short of 1.4.9 and libgpod.0.6.0, neither of which install on Gutsy/Daryna. And, I'm unhappy with Amarok's sluggishness on Gnome (compared with its peppiness and smooth integration on KDE). I love Daryna-KDE, but with it I've only been able to manage my iPod Classic by rebooting to Elyssa and kludging along with software that I'm not familiar with (rhythmplayer and gtkpod) and which doesn't seem 1/10th as useful for the job as Amarok. So its for Amarok 1.4.9 that I want Hardy-Kubuntu. Okay, and also to be able to run EnvyNG instead of Envy (legacy) and thus use the 8.47 ATI drivers instead of the 8.42 (proper suspend/resume on my laptop).

Interim kludge: anyone know if it is safe to enable Hardy repos for Daryna to update Amarok and libgpod and run them on Daryna?

Probably a small thing, but I updated the Linux Mint KDE CE wiki page to include the version 5 information, download info, etc. Maybe we can start a discussion of what all should go in here, as well as how to promote it effectively. It appears to be barely ever touched or seen :?
