I love linux BUT !!!
well , I am Windows user , and I am new to Linux , I loved Linux BUT !!!! :
1)Installing packages is an error prone process , for example :
I have intel winmodem ( pci ) , I got a linux driver for it
and followed the instructions :
the first & second are executed successfully , however the third ended with
'error loading ham'
well , what I can do more ?
another errors occured during installing other programs such as :
wine ( wine is not emulator ) ,
red-carpet ( package manager ), bochs Debugger ( pc emulator ) ....
I am using R.H.9.0 , no GUI package installer , you have to waste your time
writing command-line instructions , well , another distributions ( e.g. Mandrake 9.0 )
have this GUI package manager , however , here there is not , for this reason I
tried to install red-carpet , but as I just said , I failed .
2)Arabic Language :
I added 'arabic' layout to Keyboard Layout in
Control Center > Regional & Accessbility > Keyboard Layout .
Well , now i can write in Arabic & English , however , arabic file names
on Windows drives are displayed as '??????' .
I downloaded arabic fonts from Suadia Linux , i had intension to install them
using Font Installer in KDE Control Center , BUT :
Where is KDE Control Center , I couldn't locate it , I could find Control Center only !!
well , I copied the fonts to fonts folder , but nothing more than '??????' .
Another issue about Arabic , I need English -> Arabic Dictionary , Is there a one ?
The most important things that I am willing to realize now , are :
install wine successfully to run some Windows programs that I couldn't
find good counterparts for them in Linux such as Easylingo , bochs Debugger ...
find good installer & uninstaller .
please execuse me for this long boring message .
lot of thanks for you .
