This much I know about KDE that there is no Synaptic - it has Adept instead
hal-storage-fixed-mount refused uid X

This seems to be an unfortunately rather common KDE error

I recommend the second solution this link posted...

http://languor.us/hal-storage-fixed-mount-refused-uid-1000


the second solution in this link has worked for me in both kde daryna and kde cassandra(ntfs and fat32 externals)
although I do wish it was easier.

Thanks for the info ;)

MEPIS also have this issue, but not PCLinuxOS...

It's actually a ubuntu/kubuntu error. It's an effect of how HAL works when you don't have policykit installed... Most distros have it by default, but for some reason the ubuntu's don't...

Don't worry though, the next *buntu version is slated to have PolicyKit included by default, which should eliminate this problem finally...

I just checked the Debian package list. Only Sid (unstable) and Lenny (testing) seem to have it now.
They say that PolicyKit needs time to mature before it's officially added to Stable.


It's just the bit I learned from searching around for a fix since I was annoyed at the mounting issue too... I had no idea about any of this before that... There's still so much to learn about this system.

I will have to leave MEPIS because using Debian Stable isn't for me, even if MEPIS is a great distro!
I'm still choosing for the right distro, and Mint KDE is one of them, but until isn't released...

And fixing this issue is a must for me!

Hi, I have a problem with OpenOffice and compiz, whe I start it, it fills all the screen, with no borders, and it's impossible to modify the size, also doesn't let me use the menus (File, Edit, Insert,etc), the only way I can use it is disabling the 3d Effects, start Openoffice and enabling the 3D Effects.

this is a known compiz problem.
to fix:
open compiz config settings manager--> utility --> workarounds
un-tick "legacy fullscreen support"
and presto it is fixed.

I had a problem installing on a IBM Thinkpad T40. The install stopped at 94% while installing Grub (no other O/S installed). Drove me nuts trying to figure it out. Gutsy has the same problem and many various (some are tedious) workarounds are posted.

Instead of using the Install icon on the desktop, open Konsole and run the following:
sudo ubiquity kde_ui --no-migration-assistant

Installed without a problem after that. Hopefully someone else will find this useful.

Rob

BTW.. I'm digging this version. Time to hit the sack for now. Looking forward to installing all my favorite apps tomorrow.

Clem, Boo,

This is turning out to be one of the best betas I have seen in quite a while. And I have looked at a few. :-)

Other than general polishing I only see a couple issues that really need resolving before the final.

1) The message.mint problem I mentioned in another post. Currently you won't get the nice boot screen if you have a separate /boot partition. There is an easy work around listed in my other post but suspect most of your target audience will not be able to work it out.

2) This one is a bit more complicated. This problem is showing up on 3 different machines. Different motherboards, disk arrangements, amounts of ram, and BIOSs. The only thing they have in common is Intel processors. And then not the same one. Two single core and one double core. The problem is when the system has been running and being used for 3 or 4 hours it gets slower and slower. It seems to show up first in Firefox but I don't know if this is the bad guy or not since Firefox is a bit of a resource hog to begin with. It gets to the point that you scroll with the mouse and have to wait a second or two for the screen to respond. Or you type and the key board is so far ahead of the screen it becomes unusable. You can see the same thing in Kate, Open Office, and Konq. Though not as bad as in Firefox. On boot up it is not quite as fast as Kubuntu, but it is close enough. It is only after a number of hours of use that this problem begins to show up. I am not running out of memory. The system is using only slightly more memory after 4 hours as it does shortly after boot-up. I strongly suspect a resource depletion problem but haven't been able to put my finger on it. If others are having this problem too this is a real show stopper. If you need any further info that I might be able to supply, feel free to pm me.

On your way to an excellent release! :)

Thanks,

Fred

I post from Ladispoli, Rome, Italy.
Sorry for my English.
I had problem during installation process.
The system sets the screen resolution at a too much high level for my crt monitor (LG FLATRON 775FT).
Over 1280x1024. The result is that my monitor turn itself off. All the installation process proceed whit the black
screen. At the end, I see the Hard disk and CD leds, I resume the monitor visibility whit Ctrl+Alt+Del key just the time
to send the reboot command. After reboot I set a different screen resolution from the system setting panel.
Apart from that problem your linux distribution is SIMPLY THE BEST KDE DISTRIBUTION I NEVER SEEN.
I love you.
Bye.

Is there much improvement from this version to the Beta 28 i think it was?

and also if i'm migrating over from that old version, is a backup of my home folder sufficient to prevent from losing anything major?
