Gentoo gives you a nice package installer called emerge. You can find a lot of instructions on how to install KDE at the gentoo wiki. The short answer is to go to terminal, and type "emerge kde-meta". For a better answer, check the link I provided earlier.

Windows is more up to date than th one tryng to download,I need to cancel this but do not know how to find it


. First of all click the Start button to view the Start Menu. Then choose the Control Panel option.
2. The Control Panel window opens up now.
Click the System and Security link from the Control Panel window.
Important updates provide significant benefits, such as improved security and reliability. Recommended updates can address non-critical problems and help enhance your computing experience. Optional updates are not downloaded or installed automatically.

6. Important Updates can be configured in four ways:

  • Install updates automatically (recommended)
  • Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
  • Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them
  • Never check for updates (not recommended)
If you choose Install updates automatically , there are additional options to schedule the update at a convenient time.

3. The System and Security section of Control Panel opens up. Here you can see the Windows Update link.
As you can see in the above screenshot there is direct links to the important Windows Update option here it self in slightly small fonts, such as Turn automatic updating on or off, Check for updates, View install updates . You may choose the required option directly from here. But we are going ahead to the dedicated Windows Updates section of the Windows 7 control panel by clicking the main Windows update link.

4. So now we are at the Windows Update section of our Window 7 Control panel. You can manually look up for any new updates by clicking the Check for updates button under the heading Check for updates for your computer fromthis window. In order to modify the Windows update option click theChange settings in the left pane.
5. Here you may change the way Windows 7 download and install updates. Configurable option include Important Updates , Recommended updates ,Who can install updates and Featured update notifications .
or if Never check for updates is selected:

How can I connect the USB Bluetooth bugs in Ubuntu 8.10?


<p>USB and Bluetooth connectivity errors in Ubuntu 8.10 are the result of two different errors. If you are running KDE, you have a patch on their Bluetooth connectivity problems (see Resources) to download correct. USB connection errors are the result of a bug in the current version of the Linux kernel. Run "apt-get package manager to upgrade the kernel is usually the fastest and most trouble-free. After the upgrade, the system restarts. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Open a copy of the console when running a graphical user interface (GUI). <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Type "apt-get update" and press "Enter". <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Type "apt-get upgrade" and press "Enter". The window that appears available updates. Find anything related to the kernel that "n" followed by pressing "Enter". <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Type "apt-get install package-name" where "package name" is the updated version of the kernel. Press Enter. Confirm that you have to install the update by typing "Y" and press "Enter". Once the upgrade is complete, restart your computer. <br />

Can I get My Computer icon in Ubuntu 11.10


There is no My computer icon in KDE.
On the task bar click the K with the Gear. Explore the Favorites menu. Make sure that the Dolphin file explorer is there. By clicking Dolphin your Home folder will open.
You can also add a widget on the desktop. Point to some empty space on the desktop. Right click the mouse button then select Add widgets. At the bottom of the screen some windows open. In the categories, look for file sytem. Choose and enter. A widget of your home will be displayed.

One advice. I think you should run the Synaptic Package. Manager to make sure you get all necessary packages for KDE. In the QuickFilter text area enter KDE. All packages that relate to KDE will be displayed. Explore to see if there is something you need that was not installed.
Select all the packages you want. Any package required for the one you selected will be chosen for installation.

I can't find a trusted website to download student Encarta premium for free


This is because Microsoft doesn't offer any version of their office software for free. They will provide you with 30 day trials on some office products (word, excel, etc.) but not encarta, outlook, etc..

The benefit of the student and teacher versions is they will let you install the same copy on up to 3 pc's, vs the non student and teacher versions will only allow installation on 1 pc.

I didn't install openoffice in linux5.3. Plz send article or installation process for guide.


Installation Steps The following steps assume you want to install OpenOffice on a multi-user Linux setup in an area accessible to all users on your system. This is referred to as a "network" or "multi-user" setup. Additionally you may install OpenOffice in a "single-user" setup. Consult details in the User Setup Guide (a pdf file) included with the installation archive for further details. These instructions assume you are using some X11 window manager to perform the actual installation. The setup is an X application.
  1. Make sure you are root
  2. Download the tarball from OpenOffice.org (the download can be done from any user account and then moved), and extract the tarball (.tar.gz file) to a temporary directory.
    "/tmp" is a good place for example. For the purpose of this example, I will assume you have downloaded the tarball to your /tmp directory.
  3. Open a terminal, such as xterm or konsole.
    To extract the tarball, change to the /tmp directory: cd /tmp
    and extract the tarball: "tar -zxvf [tarball name]".
  4. This should create a directory "OOo_1.1x_LinuxIntel_install".
    ("x" in this sense is a suffix to version 1.1 that will depend on the version you downloaded.)
  5. Change into this directory: "cd OOo_1.1x_LinuxIntel_install".
  6. Execute the setup script for a "network" installation.
    This is done with the following command: "./setup -net"
    This is a friendly installation process which will prompt you for a destination directory and other OpenOffice installation options. When the setup is finished, you should have a complete "network" installation installed in the destination directory you specified. Tips on installing OpenOffice.org with an NFS setup can be found on our nfs tips page. Note: It is NOT advisable to install over an existing OpenOffice installation. If you want to use the same destination as an existing version of OpenOffice, delete the contents of the existing directory!
  7. Part of the installation process includes telling OpenOffice about your Java installation. Normally this can be automatically found or you may need to supply it, or install the JRE supplied with OpenOffice if you don't already have it installed. (But see Prerequisites for more control over this.)
  8. Each user on your system should then execute the user-setup for OpenOffice.org.
    To do so, login as a regular user, then change into the program directory where you installed OpenOffice.org:
    "cd /opt/OpenOffice.org1.1.0", for example
    and execute the following command:
    "./setup"
    The user portion of setup will now execute. Tell setup to perform a Workstation installation (should copy about 1.4 MB of files to your home directory) and typically let it default to the directory it recommends for storage of the local files in your user directory.
    Example: "/home/billg/OpenOffice.org1.1.0"
    Follow the instructions and fill in your contact details. If your users have been previously running an older version of OpenOffice, they should delete the current version of ".sversionrc" before starting up the newly installed version. This will reinitialize the version information for the new setup.
  9. That's it! If you use GNOME or KDE (provided your distro keeps the KDE user files in ~/.kde2), you will find that OpenOffice.org is fully integrated in your environment. If you use a different Windowmanager, you can start OpenOffice.org by typing ~/OpenOffice.org1.1.0/soffice
  10. You may remove the install files in /tmp, if you are done installing. (thanks to Henrik Eismark for pointing this out)
Have Fun!

Gurb hangs after installing ubuntu on raid 0. I left a 500 Mb /Boot (marked as bootable), 1,7 Gb swap on each disk and /root and /home partitions on raid 0 disks each. Installation gave me no problems but...


Hi,
I too upgraded from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 9.10 using wubi, the Windows ubuntu installer. Everything was fine, and I even admired the beautiful desktop, added KDE. I was very impressed until came the time to reboot. Grub hung. I entered the console and tried to repair: To no avail.
I reinstalled Ubuntu/Gnome without installing KDE. All went fine until the time to reboot. It hung again. After several trials, I decided to go back to Ubuntu 9.04.

From what I could gather on the Internet, it has to do with the new type of file system ext4. If only I had the choice to use it or not.

Since I was using wubi and was not offered the choice to install the ext4 file system, I do not know whether that choice is offered on a full scale installation without wubi. You might try to find out if you can customize the installation process and not select the ext4 file system, if possible.

One remark concerning the amount of swap space you are setting aside. In my opinion that's too much: I have a 2GB RAM, about 300MB swap space, and each time I monitor swap usage I find it very low to nil.

Concerning Ubuntu 9.10, I will wait until the bug(?) is fixed before upgrading. Good luck to you

I hope it helps
Thank you for using FixYa.

Install Linux OS


I would recommend installing Linux Mint LXDE, Cinnamon or KDE, which is a free OS available for free download from http://linuxmint.com Cinnamon and KDE are full featured, XFCE is streamlined and slightly faster and a better choice for older computers with less memory and/or storage space. All versions come with Firefox and LibreOffice full Office Suite, capable of saving and reading files in the popular MS Office formats like .doc, .docX, .ppt and xls.

Linux comes with almost everything necessary to begin using the computer immediately after installing the OS.

To install it on a netbook or notebook computer, I'm assuming you don't have a DVD optical drive so you have to install it from a USB thumb drive. If you have a DVD optical drive, I would still recommend installing it from the USB thumb drive, ... it's more reliable and less prone to failures from trying to burn a DVD on old, dirty or out-of tolerance equipment.

First download the .iso file on another computer. If you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit, you can use the 32-bit for both, or try the 64-bit - if that doesn't work, use the 32-bit.

Use a free program to create a bootable USB using the .iso file. (You can't just copy the file to the USB drive) ... I'd recommend using Active ISO Burner from NTFS.com ... here's the download link ... http://www.ntfs.com/iso-burning.htm (You should be using at least an 8 GB size thumb drive).

Once you've created the bootable USB drive from the .iso file, you should be able to insert it and start the computer and see the Linux Mint startup screen. It will come up in LIVE mode, without installing itself, so you can try it out.

If you want to install it, make sure you are connected to the Internet and have your AC power adapter plugged in.

If the computer doesn't come up with the Linux screen, you probably just need to reset your BIOS boot order so it boots from the USB driver first. Plug in the USB drive and start the computer. Look of instructions for set up or boot order, usually pressing F2 while the computer is starting. Follow the directions to move the USB to the top of the boot devices, i.e. about the hard drive. Save changes and restart the computer. It should now boot from the USB. If you have trouble doing this or burning the bootable USB, you might have a geek friend or relative that can help or do it for you.

When the LIVE mode comes up, it displays the Linux desktop with an Install icon. If you double click the Install Icon you will begin the installation process and just follow the simple prompts and create a password when prompted.

Linux never requires anti-virus and does not become infected. You can visit the main http://linuxmint.com website and download the .PDF manual if you are interested.

Your computer is probably 64-bit, but if not, there is also a 32-bit version available for download.

The image shown below is from my Acer and is Linux Mint KDE, which is also available from the same website and similar to LXDE, but more full-featured. All Google programs I know of are available for Linux, since Google uses 100% Linux. Android is Linux also.

Once you install your Linux, you'll want to run the Update Manager to get the latest updates.

On my Acer netbook I have 3 Linux OS's installed. Linux Mint Cinnamon 64-bit, Linux Mint KDE Cinnamon 64-bit and Linux Mint XFCE 64-bit. I select the OS I want at startup when the computer starts.

Hope this helps. bdf3eb0b-7c1d-4c93-b25d-72c3f473ae47.jpg
