Austrumi Help


Anyone know how to convert the new Austrumi 1.4 from Latvian to English desktop.
The clear path on the older 1.3 Austrumi (with Enlightenment is not to be found
on the new version 1.4?

Austrumi was a great fast little distro but I need the english desktop, not just the english selection of Firefox.

Lol-nobody really seems to know much about that distro, but I use it occasionally as well.

Look here:

Back to the drawing boards.
The message you referred to was correct for the older versions of Austrumi. Ver 1.4 seems to be different. I'll be making another attempt tonight to find the english desktop. If no luck, then it's time to continue playing by trying another distro from the Linux Format cover disks. Next up might be Fedora Core Live.
Thanks for your efforts.

OK, remember that in that thread, I couldn't get that to work either. Instead, right click on the desktop and scroll down the menu, the options Latvia and English pop out. I have a late version of Austrumi as well.

If you get it working or have a new problem, post a reply-we can't read your mind to see what is happening.

Thumbs up Austrumi English resolved

Austrumi Version 1.4 did indeed provide a path to it's English desktop. Follow the new pull down menus to Systemic (Latvian spelling of the word), look at the new breakout selections, find the very tiny flag symbols to select English (American flag). Click on the flag. This will bring you to three selections, one of which is the British flag. This entire path is different from the previous versions of Austrumi, so beware. The updated Firefox looks good even with the blue/grey background.

Thanks for everyone's assist.

Nevermind, I was able to go through the setup and figure it out.

Austrumi for internet ? Connections ?

If you use wifi or ethernet, use dhcp and dhcpcd for connection to ISP using set-top box on cable or DSL telephone connection.

For those using dialup. You need external modem. Use ppconfig to set up serial port, external modem and dial to your ISP telephone number and your account name using password.

After connecting to your ISP account, then launch Firefox to use home(or Yahoo portal).

Latest version is v1.6.6 released 12/28/2007

ftp://linux.edu.lv/pub/Austrumi/austrumi-1.6.6.iso

81.9 mb long, much refined and excellent.
