Objet : [trinity-users] PCLOS updated report 2

ok I'm using an ISO entitled
I don't know who mastered it but so far, it's a good one.

gphotoframe, was in one of the working reps so I tried it.

>Hello Kate,I'm happy that you are enjoying my remaster :) What issues have
you been having with synaptic? I'll be happy to help in any way I can
>Alie (present_arms)

Very charming and that would be lovely. Again, I don't know if it's your
remaster, but I would like to try it if you can give me a DL link.

Ok bugs:

1. Synaptic, not all the reps are working. So it can't dl some packages so the
rep sets need updating.

2. Kipi plugins are not see by the "kde3" version of digikam and perhaps other
kde3 versions of other softwares that use it.

3. When assigning an icon to say, a directory or app icon, if you backspace to
delete a typo, the dialog crashes. Often taking the associated app with it
(for example konqueror).

4. plugged in devices such as usb sticks don't always show up in kwikdisk.

5. During one test the netapplet asked for a root password but then rejected
it. Never bothered to trace it since I wreaked the install during tests and

6. when using a settings tool like kcontrol. Once I apply a change, I need to
close it up and reopen it to order to make further changes. This also happens
when I right click on the taskbar to make changes there as well. Seems to be
Trinity related.

That's all I have for now. I'd like to know who's remaster this is for sure.
Now that I'm into heavy testing (sounds pervy, sorry), I'd like to work / help
with the author  as much as me limited skills will allow. Perhaps learn much
in the process, always a plus.

I'm really looking for a none ubuntu (no offense) systemd free distro to
replace me fav distro, who's last release was 2008. Tis a wee bit out of date
but amazingly reliable, stable and configurable. I have it so customized it

Another things I can do without a problems is use /home/foo/setting as the
user directory. Then I place other dirs in /home/foo such
as /home/foo/User_Files, /foo/Multimedia.

Doing this makes it easier to backup what would normally be splashed out
within the user's dir. I have found it makes it easy for windows user and
anyone in general to make backups easier. It also makes it easy for some
delete happy people who are told not to touch that dir for any reason.

I just reset paths for documents and deskop (which is now in user files) and
we are good go do. Been using it for years. Never lost any data, even after
HD failures.

Cheers to all,

Hi kate,

It is really nice to ses that you took some time to try my PCLinuxOS TDE remaster (yes, by the name of the iso I can say that it's mine).

It's also sad to ses that you had some issues with the repos, but I think that I was using a temporary repo that Francois Andriot made available to me. In this case, you can édit your sources.list file as in the pclinuxos installation page on this site.

Also, several bugs has been introduced in the TDE r14 series, versus, who was rock solid. It will improve over time, and it also has new feature. It is very important for the users to take some time to report bugs in TDE, because the devs and testers (as me) have different ''testing paths'', so some bugs might be overlooked.

Thank you very much!
