Starting a new thread. I have downloaded a new copy of PCLOS KDE 2012.08. Immediately on rebooting after removing the install disk got the following errors:
1. We are sorry, KDE Daemon closed unexpectedly. Details: Executable: kdeinit PID: 3701 Signals Aborted (6)
2. We are sorry, KMix closed unexpectedly. Details: Executable kdeinit4 PIS 3823 Signals Aborted (6). this one
allowed me to retry, and I did, without any further notification, so I don't know if it did or did not.
Opened Synaptic, reloaded, told it to upgrade, let it, rebooted. Add Firefox and Thunderbird to desktop.
Made the panel a little higher, but not so as to double the number of widgets on the right.
Tried to add widgets to the panel, but could not. Unlocked the widgets, raised the runner of widgets, and tried to add
the log-out widget and the remider to get milk widget. Tried alt-d, trid left clicking the widget,tried right clicking the widget--no luck. there are no extra widgets on the panel.
Changed desktop wallpaper to image from sdb. Have not yet added NVidia driver from Synaptic, or any printers.
I an trying to take this one step at a time, after having muchos problemos with the last attempt at this.
Please advise. --doug
