First up thanks for all the help with the sound card, up and runing now.
My next problem is with the KDE 3.0 font installer. I am runing this on Suse 8.1 and decieded it would be cool to install some fonts with KDE's font installer. I directed the installer to the windows side of the partition to the font directory. when I try to install a font the font installer gives me the following error message.....
invalidfont - or font file corrupt
Can you not install windows fonts in linux? I am sure I read somewhere that this was possibile. Or am I just doing this totally wrong.
I am sorry i tried doing the process described at this link, here's what happens.
I unzip the file into my home directory, then run the following comand:
cp ttmkfdir.linuxbin.glibc2 /usr/local/bin/ttmkfdir
I then the message :
cp: missing destination file
what am I doing wrong, sorry you have to spoon feed me but I am a newbie
If you get this with the newly downloaded fonts as well then reinstalling kdebase _may_ help, and if there are kde-3.1 packages available for suse-8.1 then i recomend installing them for bug/security fixes.
There are new packages available for suse 8.1 for the new KDE 3.1. I am very interested in installing them especailly as I would like to use the new Korganizer for email and contacts, I undrestand it is a integrated version of kmail, korganizer and kaddress. I am bewilldered by the amount of different packages.
Please could you give me some help with what packages to install there order of installation, and if this could be done with YAST2. I am especailly worried about not installing what is needed to run the desktop enviroment.
