JustGreg in Control Panel under Desktop there is an Adjust Touch Pad tool (flSynclient) where you can turn your touch pad off. Have you tried this?

I don't have a 64bit Laptop so I can't test it but it works fine on my 32bit laptop under Dpup Exprimo.

Seem that the current PPM version for SAMBA has the same problem.
Which Samba version are you talking about? The built-in version or Samba 3.6.5 from the repo?
I checked 3.6.5 and testparm worked OK.

Minor issues with pathing for utitities.
Please explain.
AS you know, I run Live media (DVD boot in this case expressing "media" at boot time.

@Kirk and all, nevermind. I have a update to that post.

For some reason for which I cannot explain, my post's problem has resolved. Here's what happen, but does NOT explain "why".

  1. I am running FATDOG from DVD on an 4GB X2 system.
  2. I downloaded a very large distro via browser, which only allows storage into the RAM based filesystem.
  3. A notification popped indicating "system running short of resources ..."
  4. I opened ROX and moved items from the RAM filesystem to permanent stores.
  5. while moving files, I opened a terminal to check which name was assigned for community share and found the problem with "testparm".
  6. I noted it, restarted the X desktop and posted the problem.
I remembered this 'testparm" problem from years ago and made an assumption. (that experience does NOT apply to this problem)
Note: This system has NOT been rebooted since its initial save session to Live media.

@Rcrsn51 thanks. I just reopened a terminal and the system now executes "testparm" as it should.

Sorry, but I still cannot find why that occurred.

Thanks for your help

Thanks Smoke01. Yes the control panel applet works same with a 64 bit as 32 bit. It takes care of the problem. It does save the touch pad state so the touch pad is still off after a reboot. I just finished testing it.

That solves my problem, but, is there a way to use function key to do the same? This is more of an interest of mine rather that something that needs to be done. Thank you in advance for any help on the use of function keys.

Fn+F4 will toggle your touchpad on/off. It calls the following script:
/usr/bin/toggle-touchpad.

If you don't like the Fn-F4 key combination you can make your own with sven. Sven is in the taskbar, right click on it a choose preferences.

How can this be translated to spanish?
I'm surprised that nobody translated it already. I'd translate it if there are tools to do so? Like the scripts on other puppies. Or someone could point me in the right direction...

Thank you.
Both tools look good. Will try them.
I think i was talking about MoManager when i said "Like the scripts on other puppies", because i think i didn't see it installed on fatdog by default

Thanks Smoke01. I saw Sven before. Now I have a reason to use it.

In case you weren't aware, Sven is all ready part of Fatdog.

Cheers.

Hi @Capicoso

You may also want to review this as you go forward with translations for contribution.

A few weeks back I brought myself a BluRay burner. I have just installed it to discover things don't work as expected. It won't read or write to BluRay disks. The burner is an LG BH14NS40. The disk I tried to burn is a Verbatim BD-RE

The BR disk I tried to watch was "Friends with Benefits" but it threw up an error about no keys or something.

I tried to burn with Pburn 3.7.11. I played around with the settings a bit but was still unsuccessful.

It will read and write DVD.

Any ideas? I am using FD-611, the Seamonkey version.

Cheers

You need to install a key file in /root/.config/aacs named KEYDB.cfg and optionally a file named vuk. You can read about this here:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/BluRay

I've uploaded a pet to here:

http://www.mydrive.ch/

user name: fatdog@to.scared.to.say
password: fatdog

It's in the test folder. It contains the latest KEYDB.cfg I can find and the latest vuk collection I can put together.

After you install the keys you have to first mount the Bluray and then open VLC and select media, open-disk, and BluRay. If you still get an error then the BluRay is too new. The key file only supports up to MKB version 28.

Don't ask who I am. Not legal here to play Blurays you own without giving money to player/software makers who give money to politicians Smile
