kubuntu-users Digest, Vol 87, Issue 32
 
If someone can PLEASE tell me how to get the games on www.pogo.com to work I would REALLY appreciate it. Ever since I updated Kubuntu, I can't get them to play. I have java installed and I know I need shockwave but don't know that I can use on packages. I am fairly new to this system so if you have a solution, PLEASE explain in detail what and how to install and use it.

I love kubuntu and don't want to go back to windows(UCK), but I really miss playing on pogo.
Thanks.

Thank you. Both good ideas. I'll try them as soon as the system in question

is sufficiently lightly used to allow me to reboot it.



It's still amazing to me that one has to jump through so many hoops (or,

indeed, any hoops at all) to obtain this behaviour. I can't imagine why

someone thought it was a good idea to remove this visual feedback ... now

one is faced with a computer and a hard drive that's on for tens of

minutes, with no idea at all how much longer the reboot is likely to take.

A couple of things I've noticed with the beta2



- the computer dosn't shut down properly

- trying to add an entry with kmenuedit, one puts in the entry > dosn't appear

on the menu - this I find annoying.

Have done a bit of experimenting and in the process have come to quite

appreciate activities and they will be a lot better once apps behave better

under them *and* panels respect them.



I've found konqueror to be quite good - with it I can:



- Start it in two different activities with a different set of tabs open in

each



- stopping one activity still leaves a konqueror process running, as you woudl

expect.



- stopping both activites stops the konq process.



- No matter which order I stop/start the actitivies, konqueror opens up in the

same position with the right set of tabs per its parent activity (ie. a

different set for each activities).



This is pretty much how I would expect an app to work with activities, for

example I have:



Comics Activity

*- konq up with half a dozen tabs open to different online comics



Dev Activitiy

- Konq opens to a few online references

- Konsole

- Eclipse (does not stop though)



Games Activity

- KPatience

- A bunch of short cuts to my favourite games



rekonq ufortunately seems to open a random set of saved tabs per activity, I

guess its not activity aware.



I'd *really* like to have different panels per activity but unfortunately its

not yet possible.

No, not that problem. I meant I close the Activity and rekonq vanishes with

the activity - isn't visible in any taskbar. But its still actually running, a

'ps -a|grep rekonq' show it still in the process list.



I done a bit more testing and the problem seems inconsistent, sometimes rekonq

did close. Also sometimes rekonq was still in the process list even after

manually closing it.



So I suspect the problem is with rekonq rather than activities.

I'll add that adding the Activity Bar in a auto hide centered panel is really

useful too - makes seeing and switching Activities much better.
