K3b Writing DVD copy stopped <at> 00:05:36h/Remaining 00:00:03, 4119 of 4144 MB

Is $SUBJECT what making a coaster looks like?

CPU is Core2duo E7600 3.06GHz.

Source: DVD made from standalone DVDR with TV tuner on DVD-R finalized on
PATA /dev/sr0

Destination: blank Verbatim DVD-R (CMC MAG, AM3) on SATA /dev/sr1

Other than selecing source and destination, and deselecting create/delete
image (aka on-the-fly), I used only defaults, resulting in (auto) writing
speed 22713KB/s (16.49x) in the upper pane. Target media is one of last dozen
or so from spool of 100 several years old that I remember no previous trouble
writing to.

After more than 10 minutes since last screen paint I moved the focused copy
window off its parent window, and only the focused window painted. After more
waiting, I switched to a tty and found the following:

kbuildsycoca hangs --- no login

High all,

now again an active post from me, obviously with a problem report.

Basic info: I'm running OpenSuse 13.1 with
  TDE 3.5.13.2-3.oss131.opt.x86-64

Because somehow I couldn't get TDE's display manager to run, the one
in use is KDE4's, kdm-4.11.9-111.1.x86_64.

Today I was hinted to quassel for an IRC client, checked the Suse
repos, found and installed it. The installer reported as the only
unresolved dependency for quassel-mono (monolithic/stand-alone
package, nothing to do with the Mono runtime) the evenly provided
quassel-base package, which I confirmed to also install.

During the installation process, kicker crashed and when it was
attempted to be respawned, the CPU load increased to 50% overall
(2core HT current i5-M). The load was partially from kicker,
partially from kbuildsycoca. After killing both, I tried to
manually run kicker again, but the same happened, just with only
one thread worth of CPU load occupied.

"init 3" (I know it's not the same with systemd, but...) didn't even
kill kbuildsycoca. After manually killing it, I switched back to
RL 5, and I got the greeter screen (background), but no entry fields
or menus or whatever --- the CPU load was again at 25%.

After uninstalling the two quassel packages, I switched to RL 3 and
back to 5 again, but there was no difference. I rebooted the box,

restoring keyboard settings after flipping kvm switch

Hi all,

I have made changes in kcontrol > peripherals > keyboard (repeat 
delay/rate).

This works great when I boot up the computer.

However, if I use a KVM switch to go to another computer and come back, 
the keyboard repeat delay and rate are messed up (probably default 
settings, not my settings.)

What can I do about this, so that my keyboard repeat settings will be 
automatically applied when a (new) keyboard is plugged in / replugged?

I can see that it is possible to set something up through udev, but I 
don't know how to script TDE changes that appear to require the GUI. How 
to script this? Or perhaps udev is not the right approach?

Thanks!
~David.

Network manager advice

Hello all

Can anyone clarify how network management works by default in Trinity? Coming 
from a Gnome background I was expecting an all-around Wired/Wireless manager 
akin to network-manager but have had no such luck.

I primarily use WiFi, and did try out KWiFiManager, but it appears to be quite 
buggy. Specifically, for my card it states that 'no networks [were] found' 
(but the same scan with iwlist returns a network list).

I would ideally like to use network-manager, and while I have heard whispers 
online about a package called network-manager-tde (it turns up in a few 
Google results); it does not appear to be available in the TDE repository.

I'm running Debian 7 (Wheezy).

New TDE site released


All,

Thanks to the efforts of the TDE web development team we proudly announce
the debut of our new website (https://www.trinitydesktop.org)!

The new site provides a cleaner and easier to use interface without
sacrificing availability of any information.  In fact, several items were
added, including a new FAQ page and application documentation.

Additionally, per popular request we have transitioned from our old
FOSWIki installation to a new MediaWiki installation, with all old content
having been migrated over the course of several months.  This should make
it much easier to add new content to the TDE knowledge base.

Let us know what you think!

Loss of Kontact Kalendar module after update

Hi,

I used apt-get dist-upgrade last night, as I usually do when package updates become available on R14. After the latest update, I started Kontact: KMail works fine, as usual. But when I clicked on Kalendar, I got a "Kontact Error: Impossible to load the calendar module; can't open the module".

I went to Configure Kalendar and got a message saying something like :
"Could not find the specified korganizer library. Diagnostic is : can't open the module. Possible reasons:
*An error occured during your latest TDE update, leaving an orphan configuration module.
*You have a third party module somewhere." (as far as I know, I don't).

I use Ubuntu Precise with TDE-R14 nightly builds on a 64-bit system. I need to get my Korganizer working again: I am fully dependent on it for all my appointments. Any suggestions? I checked this trinity discussion site several times to see if anyone else had the same problem: seems not so.

Thanks in advance,

Marco

I have a server similar to that one (IBM NetFinity) sitting gathering dust
I'm afraid.  They aren't worth much these days; any savings in hardware
costs get chewed up in electricity in the first few months of operation. 
Older Intel hardware is extremely power hungry; add to that the heat load
on the cooling systems in a datacenter and you have a server best used for
experimentation/learning.  It's probably only worth a couple hundred
dollars at best.

It is compelling..great hardware..but..It is 10 years old, eons in 
server tech years, mostly the energy required to run such a beast.

Our Linux user group has recieved one or two of these as 
donations..great learning tool, no one wanted to run them at home 
though.

PCLinuxOS non-official TDE remaster version 2014, April 30 is ready to download!

Hi everyone!

My PCLinuxOS TDE non-official remaster version 2014, April 30 is ready to download!

I call it non-official because it doesn't come from the PCLOS team and since it contains software coming from outside of
their repos, it is also not supported by them. It only has a special ''permission to exist'' from the PCLinuxOS dev team.

It can be seen as a whole as the much-loved PCLOS 2007, but fully updated and upgraded.
It is a complete system that can be used as a LiveDVD or it can be installed (from the LiveDVD).

New on this release:
-Fully updated PCLinuxOS 2014 base system
-Based on stable TDE 3.5.13.2
-A theme switch Zenity script to let the user switch between the more modern theme I use and TDE Classic theme, to please more users.
-A SuperKaramba theme pack
-XBMC media center and wine are new apps included on the DVD

On this LiveDVD:
-Tons of TDE software and major apps like LibreOffice, Firefox and Gimp

Login info (on the LiveDVD):
Regular user:guest    Password:guest
Super user: root    Password:root

System requirement:
A x86 computer with at least 384mb of RAM.
It is a 32bit system, but it can be installed on a 64bit system too.

Download link:
PCLinuxOS_no_TDE_remaster_30avril2014.iso 1.99 GB
https://mega.co.nz/#!bkgRCKpa!HMakiQTlomIlq9I3O-8Ib117XeAOP4qwKo91FDjfFrg

Please note that you will need to install the MEGA Download Manager Firefox (or Iceweasel) plugin to download a file of that size.
If you are unsure about itd, you can uninstall the plugin right after the download.

Md5 Sum:

If you like what you see, you can consider giving some money to the Trinity Desktop Environment project!

Give me your comments!
