Hi all,
Still having fun playing around with zubuntu but I'm playing as root which makes me nervous!
I can create users from command line but gnome system tools doesn't seem to work.
I get the error "You are not allowed to access the system configuration" when running from root.
If I run "network-admin" from terminal, I get the error:
** (network-admin:1656): CRITICAL **: Failed to execute program /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch_helper: Success

Has anyone been able to get this running?
Has anyone been running as non-root?

Regarding rotation, I saw some references to x11-xserver-utils and xrandr to get rotation working.
I have both but changing the orientation of my SL-C860 doesn't do anything.

Is there something I'm missing?

I managed to get zubuntu working - mostly on my SL-C860 with some tweaks, edits and manual IP address.
Pidgin unfortunately segfaults whenever it is run - I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no luck.
Not sure about that one but otherwise it looks great!

Hi all,
I recently got the 1.8.3 release of ruby installed on my C860 which also let me put gem and install rails. I also have SQLITE3 working.

HOWEVER, the ruby-sqlite3 gem installation requires some native compiling. I suppose I could try to get that working but I wondered if anyone out there has already compiled support to bind the two together.

Failing that, does mysql work with rails on the Z?

I get a sporadic restart of QTopia with Cacko 1.23 lite. The last time this occurred I had Calendar and Textmaker active at the time. There is a sideways - somewhat garbled cardmgr message and then QTopia restarts back to date applet. I seem to recall a similar bug in 1.21 prior to patches. Is it a recurrence?

Anyone else had this? Is it related to screen saver and if so, is there a way to prevent the screensaver from appearing at all?
