Re: Asphalt-mint wallpaper

Hello all.

Just wondering, I once saw a mint zen wallpaper with a lady sitting on a rock with a blue / white background.

Any ideas where I can find it and who made it?

Cheers

Re: "Gloria" KDE RC1 DVD will not boot on Laptop

Tnank you but:
As one poster suggested it might be remastersys. If it is remastersys try updating to the most current version of remastersys.
quote from above:
I just downloaded a copy of "Gloria" KDE RC1 and burned it to a DVD.
I always burn at 4x

How to I find out which make it is?

Okay, I understand.
I haven't set anything. I wouldn't know where.

I am running kde4.3RC2 and system settings gives nothing.
I can't find anything anywhere else I can think of. which to be honest isn't saying much :oops:

Re: "Gloria" KDE RC1 DVD will not boot on Laptop

Hello Husse,
interesting, and the answer is: it doesn't look like it. My desktop does.

I have not seen this before. In fact it would not have crossed my mind that there could be a restricion.

I mean what is a dvd / cd player for when not to also load data?

Re: "Gloria" KDE RC1 DVD will not boot on Laptop

thank you

Playing DVD movie works fine.

F12 does nothing and when I try to load the live DVD while running Kubuntu it is not recognized.

On the desktop it is recognized and I can open in dolphin.

Hmmm....

[Solved]"Gloria" KDE RC1 DVD will not boot on Laptop

Hello,
I just downloaded a copy of "Gloria" KDE RC1 and burned it to a DVD.

It boots fine on my desktop but is not recognized on my laptop (HP ze4931ea, 512 mb RAM )

I have my bios set to boot cd first.

I would like to test it on this laptop.

Any ideas?

Katapult and kmix as root?

I installed Darnya kde beta a few days ago. I had a few problems which I mentioned elsewhere but the jist of the matter is this.
Whenever I login I have to give my password for kmix and katapult as they want to run as under root.

Any ideas how I can get this issue fixed?

Thank you

No chance of Beryl 0.2.x being added to Daryna as an alternative to Compiz?
Beryl is dead, well at least party. It was fused with compiz.
