Re: Selecting Default Sound Card

Oh yeah, I had to use qdbus for stopping it :)

I found the problem, I transposed a variable wrong. "for a in $rzuser; do su --login $x" should be $a in both cases.

will update once again tonight; in the mean time, you can log on to razor as root at it will work there.

Re: Selecting Default Sound Card

Ok, i'll have to do some testing to find out why it's not managing the panel properly and come up with a fix. For now, try opening a terminal and kill your razor panel: kill `pidof razor-panel` That will remove your panel. Then run the script, hopefully it will all get through, then you can restart ...

Re: Selecting Default Sound Card

Ok, updated script has been uploaded, it's here: http://porteus-xfce.googlecode.com/files/gtk-soundcard-select That's the same path as the link I posted above; I deleted the old file and replaced it with the new one. Instructions are the same; download it, open a terminal, su to root, chmod +x to ma...

Re: Selecting Default Sound Card

Ok, that is good. generic and generic_1. I have modified the script such that I believe it will work for you, but I was on the bus without a network connection (now posting by phone). Will upload and link to it later tonight, 7 or 8 hours from now.

Re: glib update to 2.36.0

Yeah, you can probably use the stock version of gobject-introspection from Slackware. 32-bit: http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/slackware-14.0/slackware/l/gobject-introspection-1.32.1-i486-1.txz 64-bit: http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/slackware64-14.0/slackware64/l/gobject-introspection-...

Re: Christmas wishes for Porteus-3.0

As I understand it, Hamza's printer refused to print a test page even though it was recognized by the system. Hplip is scripted to print a file that sits at a hard-coded path for its test page. That file is a gzipped file (.gz), and my module cleanup script finds and decompresses all .gz files so th...

Re: Selecting Default Sound Card

hmmm... I wonder if the fact that two identical devices are presented is causing my script to foul up. Your logs probably give me this information already, but just to make sure I have things formatted correctly, would you please give me the output of the following: cat /proc/asound/cards cat /proc/...

Re: glib update to 2.36.0

What package are you trying to port? IIRC, glib is very much a core library and version-dependent, so upgrading it on your system will risk breaking other packages. You may want to look at building an older version of the package that would depend on glib2-2.32, which is the version in Slackware 14....

Re: Possible Time Stamp Shifting Between System Time And App

@wread -- webmail is not affected by this, because they're drawing time from their own server. Seamonkey and Stellarium are the only programs for which I've confirmed the issue but I suspect other mail clients may behave similarly. If you've set your timezone and your system displays the correct tim...

Re: Rendering Desktop Icon Label Background Transparent in X

Horribly late response, sorry! I took a look at this, and I think the issue is that I applied the background transparency directly to the gtkrc file for the Evolve theme. You'll want to modify the settings there, /usr/share/themes/Evolve/gtk-2.0/gtkrc run a search for xfdesktop-icon-view and modify ...

Re: Possible Time Stamp Shifting Between System Time And App

P.S. - the "localtime" file wread is referring to is a binary file that is actually a part of the GNU libC zoneinfo package. There's a different binary file for each timezone. Go to /usr/share/zoneinfo to see all of them. When you set your timezone, one of these binary files (in your case US/Eastern...

Re: Possible Time Stamp Shifting Between System Time And App

I respectfully disagree with wread - I still think you've not quite gotten your time configuration correct, and it's likely due to my lack of describing what to do and how to accomplish it. Let's start off with some pictures to help clarify the situation: Here's a screenshot of seamonkey mail misbeh...

Re: Possible Time Stamp Shifting Between System Time And App

Did your CPU usage go up right when you activated the module, or when you tried to run the script? I have never seen 'activate' do this, but I have seen ktsuss use more cycles than I would like. Ktsuss is the little utility that prompts you for your root password. If it happened when you tried start...
