    Re: Pinguy OS 10.04 x64, Please Try.

    Hey, I really like this a lot! I am having one issue though. Every time I try and download something (from anywhere)
    I get this error:


    Code:
         /tmp/ftjatmjN.tar.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.
    
    Try again later, or contact the server administrator.
    Other than that, I am really enjoying this and see no reason why it couldn't be my main OS. THANKS FOR THIS.

    The latest Docky build (from the last night) freezes GNOME at boot time.

    Pinguy, do you face the same problem? Is there any solution?
    I tried the GNOME Failsafe mode and GNOME started fine (without loading Docky, of course). Then I deleted the Docky configuration folders in '/home/user/.cache/' and '/home/user/.gconf' with no actual effect.

    Thanks for this Pinguy OS. I've been checking Linux now and then since 1995 but always stayed with windows. I've gotten quite knowledgeable with Windows from 3.11 to 7 but I still keep checking Linux.

    I think this version is the one that will allow me to quit Windows. I've had Pinguy OS installed for a few hours and will keep using it from what I can tell. The only thing missing right now is to be able to play Guild Wars but that isn't reason enough to go back to Windows for me. It is so pleasant to use Linux like this I'm sticking with it. Thanks for an intuitively easy to use Linux.

    By the way, don't worry about no feedback. You have done a great job here.

    No I haven't. All I would do is remove Docky and turn off their repo (Software Sources > Docky) then reinstall it. By doing this it will use the older version.

    Code:
    sudo rm /tmp/ftjatmjN.tar.part

    You may want to use gnome-screenshot instead of shutter for a default screenshot app.

    Shutter takes blurry pictures compared to gnome-screenshot.

    gnome-screenshot is part of gnome-utils

    That's really odd?? I have never had a problem with shutter giving me blurry pictures. Thanks for letting me know.

    If more people are having the same problem can you tell me and I will replace it in the next version. It's the default in the distro because it can do so much more then gnome-screenshot, but if a lot of people are having problems I will use a different program.

    You are the first person I have come across that is having this problem. What graphics card are you using?

    I have the same problem, too.
    The compression level is too high and the output compression file format is the patented 'JPEG', that's the problem. Now I have no such problems.

    My (recommended) settings are:

    Output file format: PNG
    Compression level: 7


    P.S. The headline of the thread should be changed to:
    "Pinguy OS 10.04 (Lucid). Please try."

    Unable to install Pinguy OS 64 bit.

    I am running a Dell Vostra 1000 Laptop with 2Gb RAM, AMD 64 Athlon X2 and have tired multiple installs and keep getting the following error:

    "The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again."


    I really like the look and feel of the OS when running on the Live CD, but wish I could get it to install correctly.

    Update: I also tried the 32 bit version and got the same error. I get the error when the installation is about 80% complete.

    UPDATE 2: I figure out my install problem. I unplugged my USB mouse and the OS installed correctly.
