I am helping somebody brand new to linux so I started him off with
Kubuntu 8.10 (imagine that on this list!). Everything was going fine,
he really likes Amarok 2.0. Then I ran into some problems. I'm waiting
for KDE 4.2 before I upgrade so I'm not too familiar with all the
changes. He wanted to look at all his hard drives/partitions and also
add some programs. I went to Dolphin (& Konq) and tried typed in
system:/media/ and it said the protocol 'system' is not supported. I
was also having a hard time finding anything in Adept. I searched for
vlc and could not find it in the list that was returned. I do not
understand how the tags and such work since when I clicked on what I
thought was the right one, I still did not see the vlc player. (at
least I got to give him a lesson on how to use the command line to
install things so it was not a total loss) So I have two questions that
I hope somebody can help me with, I googled but did not find any real
1- What replaces system:/media/ in KDE4? In KDE3 it's 'Storage Media'
from the icon next to the Kmenu.
2- How do I clearly get the packages I search for to show up in the list
on the right in Adept? Is there a tutorial on the new tagging system or
Thank you in advance.
