    im still looking for a solution to my compiz errors though... The arch forums are really slow compared to here lol.

    i get this error when trying to launch fusion-icon in kdemod

    dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute dbus-launch to autolaunch D-Bus session

    here is my daemons line in my /etc/rc/conf

    DAEMONS=(syslog-ng hal network fam netfs crond alsa)

    if i do a dbus-launch fusion-icon compiz starts and i ge tthe effects but no windowborders and no icon in the tray...

    any ideas?
    For window borders I had to install libbonoboui (with a few gnome dependencies). For the tray icon I think it's fusion-icon-tray.
    Current distro: Kubuntu 11.04 + KXStudio

    Re: Arch Linux Talk

    Is anyone having trouble with audacious playing streaming mp3s? The last update a few days ago seemed to have disrupted its ability to play tunes off the Internet. Any suggestions? I'm thinking about dropping back to the previous version. (This happened before, maybe nine months ago, when it went from 1.2 to 1.3, I think.)

    well i added kdm to my daemons line and no i get the,


    No GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap error gotta find a solution to that now lol...

    I have a nvidia card and i know it supports it


    EDIT: Gah this is confusing me like hell.... IT's back to that original error message now with kdm loaded as a daemon...

    here's my daemon's list

    DAEMONS=(syslog-ng hal network fam netfs crond alsa kdm)

    i don't understand why it's this complicated i've had arch up and running before with no problems.... Not that it's really a problem lol it's just an annoying tick i wanna get by really lol

    ok wait if i start fusion-icon from my normal user it gives me that original error of dbus not being loaded... But if i do it as root then it gives me the No GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap error... how could this be?

    Sounds like Fusion doesn't like your configuration. Make sure you changed your xorg.conf file to work with your card.

    Actually I had some trouble with KDE and Compiz Fusion from the Git repository (although it works fine in Gnome)

    Which repository did you install from? Maybe it is worth it uninstalling and trying the other one, if you are 100% sure your settings (xorg.conf etc) are correct.

    Re: Arch Linux Talk

    I have an older laptop running debian etch with fluxbox as a graphical interface.

    I'm pretty happy with it, but I keep hearing about arch. Should I switch to arch? Is it as easy to use as Debian? With fluxbox as a gui on both, will it be faster than Debian?

    Is the package selection and management as good as Debian?

    Would Arch be beyond my skill level? I installed Debian and built it up using aptitude, but I've never compiled a kernel or stuff like that.

    If you like Fluxbox, you might want to look at Antix. http://antix.mepis.org/index.php/Main_Page
    I have an old PII/266 laptop that runs it just fine. It has a very slick customized Fluxbox desktop running on it. It comes as a live CD with option to install.

    Arch is whatever you make it to be. The base install will give you a working Linux environment with only a command line. From there you install whatever applications, desktops, window managers you like. You don't have to compile anything. Arch is binary, so it uses packages that are already built.

    The package manager, pacman is (IMO) better than apt. It is fast, and very simple to learn. the package selection for Arch is not as enormous as for Debian, but then nothing is. I've found it to be very complete for what I do. You can search the repositories here: http://www.archlinux.org/ but keep in mind that there are a lot of packages in the community repository which is not listed on the web site.

    Arch is not for everyone, but for many users, there is no other distro that comes close.

    Read the beginner's guide: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners_Guide
    Read the Arch Way: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/The_Arch_Way
    Those two documents will help you decide if Arch is for you. If you decide to install, let us know how you make out!
    If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

    The search option for the AUR community repository is here: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php. The packages here partly require compiling (this is as simple as typing makepkg). If they get enough votes from users, they will become regular binary packages and move on to the "normal" repositories. (Only explaining for Atreus12 because the difference between the regular repositories and the AUR was initially confusing to me. )

    Only if you are ready to build your system, literally, from scratch.

    Don't scare him Frak =P
    it's true that you build your system from scratch, but you'll see that you don't need many of the junk that comes pre installed in most linux distros.

    Besides, most of the commands are in the Arch wiki. It's not really intimidating
