Re: Pidgin Error

First make sure pidgin is uninstalled.
Then add the applet "search for files" in your panel. Type pidgin and a list should appear. Delete everything in this list and make a fresh install of pidgin.

Re: This may be a show stopper....

Hey hypedrive, lspci shows ATI Technologies Inc RS480 in my notebook. I was using Felicia and made a fresh install of Gloria here. I never liked to make direct upgrade.

Re: This may be a show stopper....

Hyperdrive,

I have a Sharp notebook with ATI Xpress 1100, which I believe is the same as yours.

Did you try to make a fresh install of Gloria instead of upgrading from Felicia? Cause I did a fresh install of Gloria and its workings really great. In fact, it`s working even better than Felicia.

Re: Lots of software issues.....

Did you try calling k3b through the terminal?
Right click on Menu and then edit. See if k3b is there.

About wine, try changing wine`s configuration.

Re: Skype problems

Try changing the sound in and sound out settings. You have to test all of them and find the one that suits your system better.

You can also try installing skype-static-oss.

I use Gloria with skype-static and everything works fine.

Re: Problem with BRASERO in Gloria

Hey Exploder.
Thanks for yoour reply.

No, I using Brasero 2.26.1 that came with Gloria by default.
Do you think I should upgrade? Cause I far as I know the 2.27 series are not stable yet and I didn`t hear very nice comments about them.

Re: Alternatives to Brasero?

It`s wierd. I never had any problem with brasero. I love it. In my opinion is one of the best burner out there.

If you wanna use gnome-apps I suggest gnome-baker.

Re: Battery display issue in Gloria

Nothing changes.

I forgot to mention that when I type acpi in the terminal It doesn`t recognize the battery but it tells me my battery life.

It`s strange cause the battery monitor applet doens`t work.

Re: Some issues with Skype

About skype, try installing in synaptic skype-static or skype-static-oss instead of the regular skype variant.

Skype-static works just fine in Gloria here in my notebook.

Re: Battery display issue in Gloria

In Opensuse the battery display worked fine but I had to eject and insert the battery through comand line at startup everytime.

In Felicia I had the same problem as I`m having with Gloria.

Re: SKYPE on Mint 7

Skype is a pain in the ass in any distro.

In the Skype webpage they are saying that a new version of skype for linux will be release soon.
I`m still waiting.

At least it works fine in Gloria.
