Install a package called 'color-theme'. See this link -->http://emacswiki.org/?ColorTheme It should be in the repos.

Open a konsole, run the command 'lspci' and look for the audio device, this command will produce a list of devices on the PCI bus. Cut and paste the results of the audio device here. Next run the command 'lsmod | grep snd' and post the results. All commands without the quotes, just what is between them.

Its called compiz. First of all, do you have an accelerated graphics card? Second, have you gone into MCC and activated any proprietary video drivers?

In a konsole, run the commands 'ifconfig' and 'iwconfig' and post the results for both. Next, run 'lspci' and find the wireless card in the output, if its an internal card. If you have one inserted in a USB port, run the command 'lsusb' and post the results.

Have you met the dependencies here -->http://wiki.sakis3g.org/wiki/index.p...G_dependencies

It is best to post only one problem per thread. Pic the one you need help most. This type of post is almost impossible to answer fully, by most people. It will become very very long, and difficult to follow.

It is not possible to help without some information on any one issue. You have not provided any useful problem determination information. Hence the request for various pieces of data.

I don't know if I have an accelerated graphics card, I tried to activate it from configure your computer but all options are inactive .

Please post the make and model of the system. Also, open a konsole, run the command '/sbin/lspci' copy and paste the results here.

Your laptop uses the CPU in-built Intel HD video chip (second generation). Those were not properly supported when Mandriva 2010.2 was released, so the delivered driver does not really know of your video device. The same may be true for your WLAN device.
I would recommend to upgrade to the latest Mandriva release, which should give you much better support for your hardware.

That's OK, we'll keep things rolling smooth for you. When in doubt feel free to email or IM me or any other moderator.

Please continue to the OP's new Powerpack 2011 thread.
