I don't know if you have permission to do this. Posting sound bites from albums could get the RIAA attack dogs frothing at the mouth. Is it worth it? You may feel like nothing is wrong, but the RIAA have been suing Karaoke bars and Rap DJ's lately. - Jan 22 2007

We don't need how to install instructions but could use how to down load instructions. My russian is not as good as your english. Could you provide a link that doesn't take a fluency in the Cyrillic Alphabet and Russian? Could you throw us a bone and at least have a thumbnail on the site? - Oct 13 2004

Network by crissi 129 comments

You then need to allow for packet forwarding so that your linux box will route packets it recieves. In Redhat or Fedora you add the line folowing line to /etc/sysconfig/network :


Don't forget to restart the network service after that. Then you add a route to the routing table of your all the clients you want to be a gateway for. This will then cause all packets with a destination to the other network routed through your gateways vpn connection.
It's best to read up on the various HOWTO's for routing and vpn, because getting the routing working the first time can be very frustrating. - Aug 16 2004
Brushed Metal style background proposal

Various Stuff by gg3po 9 comments

It looks like iTunes, I can do that on my iBook. I have kde & gnome installed and can run kde apps under xwindows at the same time with apple apps. I use a couple of aqua like themes to keep the look & feel similiar. There are some great open source apps that I've used for years (gimp, gcc, nedit, quanta+) along with some great software for apple (iApps, MS Office v.X, Macromedia MX Studio), the ability to run both has helped tremendously. I would love to be able to set a few apps to a brushed metal background. - Jun 02 2004
MahJongg 3D Solitaire

Board by RetoSchoelly 28 comments

The install seemed to ignore make PREFIX=usr and but it in /usr/games the install crashed with can't find /root/bin/mahjongg3d-hires. So some work on a more general install is in order. The tiles don't completely disapear immediately after selecting a match. It looks like half a tile is left. But they do disappear completely after the next subsequent match. It may be my RedHat 9 setup, I use qt3.3 and I have installed quite a few changes to the default redhat in the last year. The tiles are a little dark, maybe a lighter set? Gnome 2.6 mahjongg has a new tile set called smooth, it's SVG and really quite readable along with being pretty. I'm not suggesting use theirs it's just idea of what would make the game easier on the eyes. This is a real great start and could evolve into the best mahjongg for linux hands down. Keep up the good work this has alot of potential! - May 11 2004
Rectangular KDE start/menu button

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by speleoalex 47 comments

Yes! I agree about the menu to a point. The 250msec is a quarter of a second. I tested various speeds for pop up menus on a website. That was the speed everyone I talked to agreed seemed the most reponsive and didn't produce alot of accidental openings. The second most liked delay was 150msec which is really quick! Since the Menu is in the lower left corner, you might not even have a delay, just go there and the menu pops up. The idea here was to make the "option" available. Granted it is inconsistent, but then kde can already be configured in many inconsistent ways.
My main point is to try different things, make them available and let the strongest ideas survive. There are literally hundreds of copies of windows widgets and icons etc. And OSX clones seem to be just as abundant, I want to see something nobody else has done. I don't think users are so stupid as to get confused by a square vs. a rectangle. The current menu will not shatter their psyche. - Apr 07 2004
Rectangular KDE start/menu button

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by speleoalex 47 comments

Why not do something creative?
I'd have alot more respect for a Circle or Octagon that said "menu". And it would be much more useable if instead of clicking it, just by placing the mouse there for about 250msec the menu would just open. The 250msec wait would prevent it opening by accident if the mouse passed over it while headed else where. It would also be better for first time users that the mouse be placed there upon boot. With the ability to change it of course. - Apr 07 2004

This "wallpaper" is in fact a thinly disguised political comment. It should also be removed, like the comments were.

So only your opinion counts because you read a book. Books are tainted by opinions too. I was in the AirForce for twenty years and have been throughout the middle east. I've seen terrorist scoping out khobar towers and speeding away in a white chevy caprice before they were caught. They blew up the corner building 2 months later. I can tell you things you won't find in a book, because I lived them and remember. - Mar 31 2004

Don't be fooled by election year crap, this is what the previous administration said for years:

We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program.
– President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998.
[T]he risk that the leaders of [Iraq] will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security risk we face.
– Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Feb. 18, 1998.
[We] urge you ... to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.
– Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Tom Daschle, Carl Levin, John Kerry and others, Oct. 9, 1998.
We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.
– Sen. Ted Kennedy, fall, 2002.
We know [Saddam] has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.
– Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.
We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has ... a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction.
– Sen. Bob Graham (chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee), Dec. 8, 2002.

Did you a actually forget we bombed the hell out of Iraq almost daily for 10+ years? We tried starving them out via sanctions. Because of the belief in WMD we did all that. And you think that removing Saddam a ruthless dictator and restoring trade, no more arial bombings, etc. is a bad idea? Think again, at least now there is a remote possibility that eventually Iraq can get it's house in order and we can leave that hell hole. Unfortunately, I see it becoming another Iran, but at least we gave them an option. - Mar 31 2004

You have a Mutex error, (QT) I have seen this on several kde apps. Usually the problem is because it's trying to either destroy a window but it doesn't have ownership. Or it's trying to start an external app (kdesu etc.) that is can't find. Here is a link to a similiar report for klmdonkey
Whe you compiled the application did you set --prefix=? I hope this can point you in a possible direction. - Mar 17 2004

I much prefer quanta for php, you have all the documentation right their and in many projects I do mix Javascript, HTML and php. Quanta rocks! KDevelop is an excellent IDE, I can't wait to try this version for my C++ projects. Has anyone had experience with KDevelop + Java? I'm currently using eclipse but find it sloooow! Why is it Java IDE's always seem to be written in Java? I've never had much luck getting good performance out of anything but small projects. Its great for servlets and web backends, but for desktop apps it's a dog! - Feb 03 2004

From the documentation it looks like there is no way to save the plot except as an ASCII file. It would be alot more helpful to be able to save the graphic in several graphics formats. Color Postscript, PDF or even PNG. I read over the documentation online, it looks promising. But without the ability to save the graphic it's useless to me. I need to be able to publish the results. - Jan 05 2004

Sometimes I am amazed how intolerant of others we have become. I don't care if you post religous themed wallpapers (All religions). Nobody is forcing anyone to look at them or use them. And nobody is being coerced into joining a church. The second amendment states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;That's freedom of religion not from religion. Now as long as this site continues to have a variety of content, I will visit it. I don't complain about the GTK themes. Let's not get so worked up about nothing. - Dec 08 2003

Funny how when someone points out flaws in christianity, they always point to the books in the Old Testament before Christ.
Christianity means following of the teachings of Jesus Christ.
In the New Testament jesus said to basically ignore the Old Testament and follow his teachings in the New Testament. The Old Testament was what the followers of Abraham used, this included Jews and Mohammad. Both Jesus Christ and Mohammad taught another path. There is not one religion today that believes everything written in the Old Testament. Not Judaism, Christianity or Islam. There is also some question if the book of leviticus even belongs in the Bible at all. - Oct 28 2003

Liquid Weather ++

Karamba & Superkaramba by Matti 1797 comments

I noticed that after awhile the liguid weather theme locks up superkaramba. The program becomes unresponsive and I can't right click on the theme to bring up a menu. This sometimes happens when I manually change the location code or right-click and update the theme. This started happening with version 1.5.1. I then compiled the newest version of superkaramba, first uninstalling the older version which was a RedHat 9 rpm. I then upgrade the theme to 1.6.2 and followed the instructions and removed the .rc file in .superkaramba. The theme works but after awhile when it updates it causes superkaramba to freeze, I can only access it by using killall -9 superkaramba and restarting it. The theme then has to be re-configured because the changes are no longer persistant like they used to be. Any help would be appreciated. The zipcode used is 23606. Other themes for superkaramba seem to work properly. - Oct 22 2003

What it stopped was the killing by the japanese in korea and china. It shortened the war in asia considerably and allowed the US to focus on Europe. The US didn't even know for sure if the bomb would even work. None had ever been detonated. There was no way of knowing really what would happen. There was even some concern that a nuclear reaction might cause a chain reaction with the hydrogen in water vapor that would exterminate all life on earth. It was only after the odds of that happening were calculated at a billion to one did they give the go ahead to try it. I'm not for nuclear weapons, but imagine that you had never seen a stick of TNT only a small firecracker. What are the odds of someone lighting the stick off TNT? - Feb 12 2003

The Japanese ruthlessly slaughtered korean and chinese civilians in their occupation of the korean penninsula and manchuria. Two million people were slaughtered at the hands of the japanese fighting in the name of there emperor. The germans executed 6 million jews during the hollocaust. The death of 140,000 stopped the killing. You need to look a little closer at your facts. - Feb 12 2003

Dynamic Menu

Various Stuff by damiancito 86 comments

It doesn't have to be slow. If the dynamic stuff is kept in memory, maybe a daemon running in the background with one single process like gkrellm does. Most of the dynamic information is in the form of text. The daemon would parse information from the /proc virtual filesystem, the system clock and lookup appointment information from korganizer. The Daemon would update itself independent of the menus so their would be no lag time. This could also be a feature that is easily switched off. - Oct 20 2002

In my opinion, the Windows XP interface is the ugliest I've seen in years. Even CDE looks better. Why in the world would you want to copy it? The window top bar & buttons are huge and looks like something from a cartoon. The panel is a big blob of blue. Most windows machines have a million icons on the desktop obscuring any reason for having wallpaper. How about something totally original instead of copying something else. - Jun 12 2002
