Re: [PC-BSD Testing] Testing Digest, Vol 7, Issue 22 Localization not fully implemented

Charles, I think that may be a KDE problem, from version to version, and 
has been like it for years, with testing various systems.

I've noticed it when I select AU, sometimes I have to change the RH end 
tab from imperial to A4 etc.  And the left hand end tab ALWAYS has to be 
taken off default in my experience. Major shortcoming of the desktop 
environment perhaps?

G'day Richard,

Could you be more specific? Maybe I can find here what you mean...
What do you mean by "the RH end tab" and "imperial"? What is the left hand  
end tab?
Please let me know!

[PC-BSD Testing] A few bugs in the last snapshot

Here's a list of bugs that I found in the latest snapshot:

  - Firefox's toolbar doesn't use the MS fonts if I have them on my  
computer.
  - I can't minimize the "Add/Remove Application" tool
  - The icons listed in the PBI Updater are jagged (use smooth rendering)

That's it for now!

[PC-BSD Testing] Are you able to use Konqueror to browse the web?

Are you able to use Konqueror to browse the web? Here I am almost unable.  
I have to try several times to access an URL to it to display. Konqueror  
displays all the time an error message saying it can't find the remote  
host. I don't have this problem with Opera of Firefox. I have a DSL  
connection and the firewall is disabled. My DNS is set properly.

Re: [PC-BSD Testing] Are you able to use Konqueror to browse the web?

I had a problem browsing the web using Konqueror in the Beta version.
I'm now using last Friday's build and have no problems.

The funny thing is that if I boot into WinXP, the Internet is lightening  
fast, but if I boot into PC-BSD/Konqueror, it's almost unusable :(

It seems I'm the only one with this problem though...

That is plain weird, since Konq works just fine on my end here, I use it
all day.

I must say that my internet connection is also a lot faster in Windows than in PC-BSD, whether I use Opera, Firefox or Konqueror.
I don't have any figures / hard evidence, but PC-BSD feels/is slower on the internet than Windows XP

Charles,

I'm having to look at a SuSE Linux running KDE to answer because I don't 
have an accessible PC-BSD machine right this moment. Please let me ask 
you to try this exercise...

Right click on the clock, right end of the taskbar.
Menu offers choices... Select "Date and Time Format"

Window "KDE Control Module" opens
There are 5 tabs along the top of the window
	Locale - Numbers - Money - Time&Date - Other

I always have needed to change them after installing every KDE-based 
system, even though I have set up correctly during or post-install with 
country and timezone. They always seem to default to US standard 
regardless, an observation since 2002 when I first encountered Linux 
(and KDE).

1. Locale always has to be changed from "Default" to Australia or 
everything else is wrong! I figure that Australia is not an orphan, I'm 
willing to bet that other countries are the same!

2. Then the "Numbers" (separators, decimal etc) are right

3. "Money" (Currency) is right

4. "Time and Dates" I set for my preferences, 24hr clock, Sunday 1st day 
of week, etc

5. "Other" I sometimes (not always)  have to change "Paper Format" and 
"Measure System" from "US letter" and "Imperial" to "A4" and "Metric"

I figured this was a KDE problem, because using Gnome installations from 
time to time, I've found it picked them correctly post-installation once 
I entered the  country location.

Does that clarify? Maybe I misunderstood what you posted? If so, sorry!
