I am just a long time user. It would take someone more skilled than I am
at this to explain it.

I think it is Antonio that has suggexsted checking file setting and
permissions. As I recall just copying can change these.

As an experiment. Close TB and do *not* delete the hidden TB folder
(.thunderbird) in your home folder but rename something. say
dot.thunderbird. Open TB and it will make a completely new one. Then see
if the dictionary will install in that one. That would tell you *if*
permissions changed, are different, from your original one and the new
one. I would write these new ones down and match them to the old one.
Might work. Won't hurt.

Thats OK. The Brother MFC-7820N works well for me. I can manage it,
print to it, or scan from it, from any computer on the local
network. My Linux boxes find it automatically, and setting up and XP
machine to use it, wile a bit more work, is still easy. (CUPS has
the print drivers for it.) Given a choice, I prefer to use a network
printer, or a printer connected to a print server over a directly
connected printer. I have had too many occasions where someone
suddenly remember something they needed to print while I was in the
middle of an upgrade. It usually happens when I have the system torn
apart on my workbench, or 15 minutes into a version upgrade. This
way, they can print from their
system directly to the printer.

Thanks, David. Tried that, but with no success. However,

# dir -l /usr/lib/thunderbird-2.0.0.9/components/myspell/en-GB.dic
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 668187 2003-02-13 15:01

/usr/lib/thunderbird-2.0.0.9/components/myspell/en-GB.aff
#

According to

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/thunderbird/dictionaries.html

«Alternatively, OpenOffice.org also uses dictionary files compatible
with Thunderbird. To install the OpenOffice.org dictionaries, copy the
*.dic and *.aff files from the zip file to the components/myspell
directory of your Thunderbird installation.»

That is really strange!

You're addressing the wrong crowd. Address your missive to the XORG
developers. You do realize (maybe not) that laptops are out selling
desktops. In a few more years none of the new developers will have
touched a video card/adapter/chipset made by any one other than
Nvidia, AMD, or Intel.

Not to mention illegal. Regardless what differences people may have
with you or someone else on the list, that is not an acceptable way to
deal with it. You may want to contact the list administrator to find
out if they log IPs that connected to your account. If so the
attacker's ISP can be identified which in turn their records can lead
the proper authorities to the attacker. Even if you don't pursue a
criminal complaint you can at minimum pursue a complaint with the ISP
of that IP who in turn can take whatever disciplinary action they see
appropriate.

And the suggestion by David to make sure you change your password
(and
secret question if applicable) is a very good one.

Hi Tom Stewart!

I am working on the same problem, so far I have not gotten arround to
trying the results of the following research. For what it is worth:

Here:

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=171361

I found:

You have to uninstall the current NetworkManager and dependencies,
then find a Fedora mirror that still has the 7.90 test release and
install the networkmanager components. You'll suffer from
constant
nagging from the Update utility, but your wireless networking will
actually be functional.

NOTE!!!!: Download the necessary packages first if your network
connection depends on NetworkManager.

I don't recall exactly what is removed, but a "yum erase
NetworkManager" will take care of the dependencies for you.

>From the Fedora 7.90 mirror download:

NetworkManager
knetworkmanager
krb5-auth-dialog
dhcdbd
dhclient

If you are running Gnome, you probably want to grab
NetworkManager-glib and NetworkManager-gnome too (I'm running KDE, so
don't need them).

Install them using "yum localinstall " and enjoy functional
networking again.


BINGO! Thanks man. This worked like a charm. The only difference was,
I used rpm instead of yum. I was having issues with yum wanting to
remove pidgin as well. Just as a note, pidgin still works (just opened
it and things logged in,
nothing more). Here's what I ran:

sudo rpm --nodeps -e NetworkManager NetworkManager-glib
NetworkManager-gnome krb5-auth-dialog nautilus-sendto

Hopefully, they'll get that fixed very soon and release an update. Not
sure why this wasn't noticed in the release candidates?

Anyway, makes me feel better. Lol... I was thinking it was something much more.

Another Path:

Reply

Got wireless to work with WPA-PSK. The solution was at
http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showpost.php?p=857006&postcount=52

As root I edited /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf so that it
contained the following:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=wheel
network={
ssid="your ssid"
psk="your passphrase"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
proto=WPA
}


The first two lines were already there. I added the remaining lines
as per the the instructions on the site above.

I then
ran
# ifconfig wlan0 up
# wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd
(the process didn't exit so it seemed, but after doing the next
command successfully I was able to close this window anyhow).

Then in another terminal window as root I ran
# dhclient wlan0

I could then close both the windows and the wireless worked. I went
into system-config-network-gui (either via command line or via System,
Administrator, Network) and ensured that my wireless card was checked
off so that it will start up on reboot (haven't rebooted yet but I am
fairly confident it will work - if not I will repost to that effect -
otherwise it worked).

Good Hunting!

Hi Rambod Kamaei (PhD)!

When using the list to reply to a question it is best to not do so
from a digest. The reason is that doing so will mess up the thread
when the message is publically presented in the archives and within
those e-mail clients which use the message address information to
arrange the messages into "conversations".

In this case, you apparently did not delete the unanswered parts of
the message and the digest was long enough to exclude whatever it was
you wrote.

Have Fun!

Tod

Please Mr. Expert, would you trim please? Just use the mouse to
highlight all the unwanted text and hit the delete key. Then we don't
have to wade through 20 paragraphs to see if you were responding to
anything. I didn't find anything so I assume that you were sending the

request. Ric

Question
 
I downloaded Ubuntu and it installed OK. My problem is I have not used Linux before but is familar with UNIX. All I have right now is the famous $ prompt. I want to get the graphical user interface such as Kubuntu. I read that there are different packages to be installed to
acquire Kubuntu from an Ubuntu installation. What steps are needed to get the Kubuntu up and running? How do I*setup a connection to the internet?

Thank you

You need to install a package called kubuntu-desktop - this depends on
on all the required elements to get Kubuntu up and running. you will
then be able to start Kubuntu by choosing it from the menu at the
login splash.

How do I setup a connection to the internet?

How do you want to connect? Dhcp wired should be plug and play,
wireless instructions can be found here
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs and should you need pppoe
you can find instructions here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ADSLPPPoE

For more help in realtime you could also join us on IRC - #kubuntu on freenode

If you've installed Ubuntu and you don't have a grapical desktop, just
the dollar prompt then you have another problem. Most likely your video
card is not being recognized. If it was recognized, you would have the
Ubuntu desktop.

Try issuing the command "startx" at the prompt. If you get an error
message most likely the video card is not configured.

It's simple to configure but I can't remember how to do it. I'm sure
someone here can help you.
