Yep. I was able to change the Firebird fonts after going through the Forums. My issue was that I was chaging the userChrome.css inside $(HOME)/.mozilla directory. Actually I should have done the changes inside $(HOME)/.phoenix directory. Now it works. Thanks..
So, the browser itself is renamed to Firebird already, but the config directory is still named '.phoenix' instead of '.firebird'? Odd...
However I'm glad that one way or another you have one problem less now.
I didn't have any success on the lm_sensors till now. As you told I have installed the required rpm from Mandrake CD-3. Installation was scuccessful. Though I got confused with the exact name of the installed executbale. I hope it is 'sensors*' in /usr/bin dreictory. But the date of this executable doesn't reflect that.
Any idea here?
From the "scary" INSTALL file (again):
There is a special scanning program installed called sensors-detect. It
will scan all available I2C and SMBus adapters for all known devices,
and give you a list of what modules you need to insert. It is written in
Perl, and you will need at least Perl 5.004 to run it succesfully.
If `sensors' returns some error message about not being able to load
libsensors, you have to add the directory in which it is installed
(by default /usr/local/lib) to /etc/ld.so.conf and run `ldconfig'.
You can use the installed sensors program to get a report of all detected
sensor devices. There is also a manual page for this program. Calling
`sensors -s' will set the limits and other configuration settings
specified in /etc/sensors.conf. Again, read the manual pages for more
I don't know were this program is installed on your system, however you always can:
1. Run 'updatedb' and then use 'locate sensors'.
2. Use the search tool 'find /usr -t f -n "sensors"' (or something similar).
3. Open your *.rpm file somehow ('mc' becomes in mind) and look at it structure.
4. Something even smarter that I'm not aware of.
After that I built gkrellm. Tried to execute it. But simply hangs. Went through the conf file. Looks like it is waiting for some input from the netwok. I didn't connect to network at this time. I Will try editing the conf file today.
Any other thoughts here?
If you start GKrellM from the command line (i.e. in terminal window) like this: gkrellm &, does it produce some error messages or something? Are you sure that all required libraries are installed and on their right places?
If still doesn't work, well, better remove it and try to search your CDs for available pre-built package. I'm not 100% sure, but it should be there (2-nd or 3-rd CD). If not:
