I have been a LInux user since about 1998 - GNOME all the way until I tried PCLOS with KDE - would never go back now - main reason is that the software is more fully featured.

I think you would be impressed.Has the option at login to boot to KDE and is based on Ubuntu7.10.Detected all my hardware which was a bit of a hassle with the old version and has google earth and Kshowmail.

kjaada,
First up, Happy New Year to you and yours.
I am still using stock standard PCLinuxOS 2007 with KDE. I have both google earth and kshowmail working with it. Also have Firefox 2.0.0.11 and Thunderbird 2.0.0.9 working very well.

Jim

Something very useful I have recently found out about PCLOS - the tool /usr/bin/remasterme. On my slow broadband it takes about 5 hours to update a new install of PCLOS - with this tool you can make an up to date new live CD.

Thank you! (Of course, I already knew that :( ) Another tall building leapt by a partnered bounder.

Hi Johnd
I have also dual boot install XP with PCLOS as I would like to switch over to tha later.
Would anyone of you be able to direct me how I can get all my Outlook data over to PCLOS(Evolution or similar).
Is there also a local(NZ) Pclos group?
Thanks

I have to agree:
Lots of "little things" I was used to are not there and no alternatives.
I do wish the 2 groups would get together instead of splitting things even further in
the linux world.Mr "Gates" must love the division.

NTThe easiest way to do this is to install Mozilla Thunderbird on the Windows machine and use it to import the Outlook data. Then copy the data from Thunderbird to the Linux machine. Depending upon your preference you can then import this into Thunderbird (Linux vers) or Evolution. More detailed instructions can be found here (http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/moving-outlook-email-data-to-linux-evolution-mail-client.html).

I doubt there would be a PCLOS specific user group in NZ, but there are plenty of Linux user groups (LUG) around. What area are you from?

Is there anyone here willing to post to me a copy of PCLOS?
Either KDE or Gnome... :confused:

I am living in the Nelson areaThere doesn't appear to be a LUG in Nelson, so you may wish to join the Wellington LUG (http://www.wellylug.org.nz/) mailing list or get involved with the PCLinuxOS (http://www.pclinuxos.com/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=58) support forum. The later will obviously be familiar with how PCLinuxOS is set up and would probably give you more specific support for that distro.

I have been very busy in the PCLOS forum lately(especially reg. outlook)
If I can get that(moving data to evolution) all sorted I am confident that Linux is going to be my next OS

notechyet,
Jen mentioned that there doesn't appear to be a Linux Users Group in Nelson. However, there are two (at least) PCLinuxOS users there. No doubt one of them will reply to your post. The other hasn't appeared on many forums lately as I gather he is a bit busy with his craft business. It was that latter one who put me on to PCLinuxOS after I had used Xandros for a couple of years.

Now, I dual boot between PCLinuxOS and Klikit (a Kubuntu derivative)

Jim (not in Nelson - although I used to be Head of Mathematics at Nayland College from 1974 to 1978)
You will find me on both of those forums under username jimwilk

Thanks for that!
I send you a pm from the pclos forum.
So let's see how my PCLOS skills are developing.
See you there..
