Screensaver lock screen, and other pesky problems (now solved!!!!)

Posted 04-03-2010 at 06:19 PM by kostya

OK, folks.
As most things I could share are already present here in one thread or another, let me just tell MY story of how I found solutions to the problems I encountered.

And the first one in line to be told is the well-known "how to disable inactivity screen lock in KDE4???" problem. The screensaver starts after "..." minutes, you want to go back to your screen ... and must type in your password! You know the story.

... Ha-ha-ha! So simple....

sabayon on netbooks

Posted 04-03-2010 at 02:40 PM by shebroman

Two things :
1. Sabayon 5.2 is a great gentoo based distro. I will love to see it run on a netbook. It seems as if it would have done so on my EeePc but failed to load the right video driver.
2. Sabayon guys or maybe Kde developers might need to fix the date displayed on the desktop that is Sabayon 5.2 Kde to show the correct date.Tried all desktop tools, none worked. nevertheless, Sabayon is great.

My name is Donald and I have been using Linux as much as possible for the last couple of years, mainly to find a replacement OS for my wife's Linux netbook and to educate myself. I don't really need Linux, but I have spent many years avoiding Windows, since the early '80s, although I have Windows-based computers, too.

A blog, eh? The average blog here has about two posts, so we'll see how well I maintain this.

My most comfortable experience with Linux is based...

BBC radio on Linux without iPlayer

Posted 04-03-2010 at 06:41 AM by richardash1981

Whilst there was a lot of self-congratulation that using Adobe Flash to deliver the BBC iplayer meant it was accessible to Linux users, the reality has been rather more troublesome. Adobe Flash is of course a closed-source binary application which is only available for x86 and x86_64 versions of Linux. There have been multiple security issues with Flash in the past and it does not work reliably for many users. It is not well optimised and does not take advantage of hardware acceleration for graphics....
