Re: Notification in Pidgin?

Any pitfalls to change from PA to ALSA? Here's an excerpt from 'Why you should care about pulseaudio : Basic service is well and good, but PulseAudio earned a place in Linux distros' default audio stacks by doing considerably more. PulseAudio can route audio from multiple sources to multiple sinks,...

Re: Notification in Pidgin?

Perhaps related to this. I too am a regular Pidgin user. Incoming sounds work fine except for the original incoming message. This being the one I most want to have getting my attention. I think this has to do with pulseaudio. The sound for incoming message is short and I've noticed pulseaudio tends...

Re: Notification in Pidgin?

Do you receive any other notify popups from any other software? Is this problem specific only for pidgin or is it broader? Do you have package notify-osd installed?

Re: Notification in Pidgin?

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install pidgin-libnotify
You can find it on the list of plugins after it is installed, be sure to check it there.

Re: system clock

Check /etc/default/rcS If UTC=yes then hardware clock is set to UTC (GMT), if UTC=no then it's set to local time. This must be equal in both your M*Ubuntu and M*Debian installs otherwise the clock will be changed everytime. -edit- this is re. to the hardware clock but regardless of these settings y...

Re: webcam sillyness

You can try adding a rule to udev to allow access to video0 device. Search for /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules and search on "video" in it. If the file is not there, you can add it yourself. Good reading on writing udev rules here. Idea is to have this somewhere in that file: KERNEL=="video*", MODE=...

Re: OpenGL / 3D acceleration problem?

Ok, here I am with the latest news related to my problems. Both problems are succesfully fixed - at least for now. Both problems were fixed by the same method as "compiz enabling" method. First I didn't realise that compiz itself needs some opengl support to enable all its effects but when I found ...

Yes, actively using it since beta. It may have missing symbols for certain language groups (arabic et al.) but if you can live without them, it is pretty sweet screen font.

Re: [HOWTO] Mounting, fstab, UUID, gnome

I hope you don't mind a suggestion. You might want to take it one more step and tell them they need to change ownership or permissions ( chown and/or chmod ) or else they will mount a partition that they can read but not write to. The line above will mount with owner:group = root:root and with perm...

Sorry for the shouting but it makes me angry when folk say such things. I've seen some post on the forum that state one way or another that LMDE is not for novices, you need some Linux experience.
