looks really great from what I have seen using the Live CD (have not got round to installing it yet). I have created a torrent at LinuxTracker if anyone wants to use that http://linuxtracker.org/torrents-detail ... 3997&hit=1

Anyone have a torrent for the miniKDE?

I wasn't going to switch to KDE, but since I crashed GNOME Mint with Envy from Romeo, why not?

Choosing Different Language During Install Works !

Post by bernado »

Hy Community,

I successfully installed Binaca KDE. And the best, I did the install in German !
I choosed German Language for LiveCD Mode and then I installed in German. No problems, the installer didn't crash. Is this okay or just luck? 8)
Installation Notes:
- do not install anything and keep your session in English if you're planning to install. You can always change the language once the system is installed (this is due to a problem in the installer).
Someone should modify this at the download page for Bianca KDE.
And by the way, Bianca KDE runs flawlessly and itś the best of all the Kubuntu Bases. :roll:

Hy Florian,

I did the following: Systemeinstellungen (systemsetting), Land/Region& Sprache (County and Language) selected Deutschland (German), then anwenden (apply), go to Tastaurlayout (Keyboard) and "Hinzufügen" (Add) the language you need. Make sure that the new language is on top or delete the other language. This woks definetely

Knetworkmanager. I had to delete it, because I am connnected via DSL Modem to Internet using a networkcard, I dont use a router. In this case you have to delete the netork-manager. In the new version Kubuntu/Ubuntu Feisty this step is not necessary. I hope I could helpjavascript:emoticon(':wink:')

Mint KDE

Post by Rafe »

Clem,

Finally found a few minutes to install Mint KDE. It is outstanding. My goodness, what an achievement! Thank you.

I installed the mini edition and it's great.

I installed Beryl from here:
http://wiki.beryl-project.org/wiki/Inst ... ith_nVidia
and it works smoothly.

Now, I uninstalled KOffice but can't manage to install OpenOffice successfully. Can anyone tell me the packages I have to mark on Synaptic?

Congratulations, Clem. I have the Gnome edition on my other machine. I love it, too.
Sorry, but that's the way it is.

Downloaded and installed the DVD version.

Looks great!

This is one of the better KDE desktops I've seen yet.

Seems to have less clutter than other KDE distros.

Still having problems with the wireless connection.
Having trouble with the Intel Pro 2200 driver.
I will try and post this in the correct forum.

Other than that, great job!!

Kmail Kwallet does not save passwort

Post by bernado »

@florianr and others


Hy,

there is a problem with kwallet that concerns kmail and probably kntworkmanager and others because kwallet is used for passwort configuration. See

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kd ... +bug/67521

For german users:
http://forum.kubuntu-de.org/index.php?topic=6193.0


This bug is already pretty old and it is probably solved with Kubuntu Feisty. Sometimes I don´t understand the Kubuntu/Ubuntu developers. Bugs remain unsolved for too long !!

Hi granmeno,

The installation is in English but then you can change the language to Spanish, for example using System>Language Selector, and the in the list that will come up choose Spanish. If you have an Spanish keyboard also change from the default us to Spanish using Settings>Keyboard>Layout and pick up Spanish or Latin American keyboard.

If you need more information in Spanish post your questions in the Spanish sub-forum.

Hasta la próxima.

But I have two Problems, after installing it:

1.) After each reboot the keyboard layout in kde is US, and not german, as I selected while installing bianca. I alway change keyboard layout in kcontrol, but after reboot it is US again. How could I change that permanent?

2) Knetwortmanager is allways starting up with kdesu and asking for the password. Is that necessary?

Sad but true I have to agree.
There must be some kind of bug still in there with KDM I guess.

First logon after initial install worked perfect and no problems with login.
Changed a few network settings (nothing too much) and rebooted
Second login: Somehow KDM totally messed up with the language layout.
Suddenly KDM only has U.S. keyboard layout which is really like hell if you have some password with layout-conflicts. And there is no option to switch back. KDE could be convinced via the settings to use german layout, but no chance for KDM-Login.

Any ideas/help? :cry:

bernado could you have a look and try to enter something at KDM so you can actually see that you have german layout? (like entering "yöü" as a username so you can validate you have the right layout)
Thanks in advance.
