I'm trying to get skype sound to work but apparently the monkeys at MS removed
alsa support and replaced it with pulse, which is rubbish. Even though I have
pulse enable (pclos - ali's remaster), it still doesn't show up. Is there a
fix to re-enable alsa or the like?
Last post ack the list archives was in August 2017, after which the list

My ISP has been known to block/bounce but pearsoncomputing.net was in

Anyway, I'm glad to be back.

I made an accout with name "jürgen", password "jürgen" and the home
directory is named "jürgen" too (for testing purpose only).
Without tdm i.e. from a console I can login without any problems, but
TDM-Login says "wrong password"
So is it a bug or a feature?

I'm trying to get Knode to filter out spam entries from the downloads in the
comp.lang.tcl newsgroup, but I'm finding the info in the Handbook confusing,
and my filters aren't doing anything. My attachments show what I've come up
with so far. Does my Spam Filter need to be above All in the list? The
handbook doesn't talk about this aspect of the configuration at all. If
that's not the problem, what else do I need to look at?
I am trying to crate a simple TDE application with tdevelop. Automatic code creation works,"./configure" works, but the final "make" fails from tdevelop with this error:
../libtool: line 1300: func_opt_split: command not found
libtool: Version mismatch error. This is libtool 2.2.6b Debian-2.2.6b-2ubuntu1, but the
libtool: definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.4.6.
libtool: You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.2.6b Debian-2.2.6b-2ubuntu1
libtool: and run autoconf again.
Libtool on devuan ascii is 2.4.6-2, so where does that come from .. and how to solve it?
Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA, CIA ...
When customizing my Kate toolbar I ran afoul of something confusing: there
are two sets of Save and Save As... icons; one set in Main Toolbar <kate> and
the other in Main Toolbar <KatePartView>. I initially used the <kate> ones,
which appeared in the default Toolbar Customization dialog, but was
disconcerted to find that clicking on Save opened the Sessions -> Save
dialog. Eventually I found the ones in <KatePartView>, which save files.
Would it be possible to change at least the text that goes with the Session
Save icons to avoid such confusion?
