For something called "Trinity Blood" I'd come fix your Arch install for you.

Up to ep 12 of Trinity Blood  :hysterical: Well I have installed "reflector" and updated me pacman.Tried to get "lightspark" but it is unavailable. So went for "gnash-gtk" which works on youtube but it is slow and runs me cpu at full speed so thats not very good. SMPlayer does the same thing which is also not very good. I might have to try out the Nvidia drivers after all and see if that brings down me cpu usage. I don't like programs that ramp up me cpu for no good reason.   :w00t:

Well I want to play Trinity Blood ep 12 from me pc rather than from me external drive. So I want to transfer the files from the External to the pc.Should be easy.But.I have read up on how to do this with the command line and feel competent enough to do this.However.I'm using Enlightenment and you can not drag and drop hence the command line.Now I'm running as root cos of me login problem. On me desktop I have a folder called "Home" inside it there is a folder called "Desktop"Now I have created some folders and put them on me Desktop and they show up in the folder and the desktop. However I can not figure out how to copy the folder or files I need to "Home" or "Desktop" from /media/sdf1/TOONS/TrinityBlood.I can not find "Home" or "Desktop" anywhere in any of the folders at root.Here is just a sample of what I have tried.
[root@myhost home]# cp /dev/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood /homecp: cannot stat `/dev/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood': Not a directory[root@myhost home]# cp /dev/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/ /homecp: cannot stat `/dev/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/': Not a directory[root@myhost home]# cp /dev/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/ /homecp: cannot stat `/dev/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/': No such file or directory[root@myhost home]# cp /devsdf1/media/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/ /homecp: cannot stat `/devsdf1/media/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/': No such file or directory[root@myhost home]# cp /dev/sdf1/media/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/ /homecp: cannot stat `/dev/sdf1/media/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/': Not a directory[root@myhost home]# cp root/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/ /homecp: cannot stat `root/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/': No such file or directory[root@myhost home]# cp /root/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/ /homecp: cannot stat `/root/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/': No such file or directory[root@myhost home]# cp -R /root/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/ /homecp: cannot stat `/root/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity_Blood/': No such file or directory[root@myhost home]# cp -R /root/media/sdf1/TOONS/TrinityBlood/ /homecp: cannot stat `/root/media/sdf1/TOONS/TrinityBlood/': No such file or directory[root@myhost home]# cp -R /root/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity Blood/ /homecp: cannot stat `/root/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity': No such file or directorycp: cannot stat `Blood/': No such file or directory[root@myhost home]# cp -R /root/media/sdf1/TOONS/TrinityBlood/ /homecp: cannot stat `/root/media/sdf1/TOONS/TrinityBlood/': No such file or directory[root@myhost home]# cp -R /root/media/sdf1/TOONS/Trinity Blood/ /home

So now I have a folder called "Home" which has inside it "TrinityBlood" with all me files inside it. Many thanks.I do not undestand how me desktop is starting everything as root. Could it be because I inadvertantly installed Enlightenment as root ?Can you do installs as USER ?If so is it worth while uninstalling Enlightenment and re-installing as USER ?How do I get from "root@myhost" to "USER@myhost" in the command line.I'm using this guide which seems to be pretty new user friendly,http://www.linuxcomm...g_the_shell.php B)

Installing as root doesn't require the app to be run as root. It just installs the app system-wide, so that all users can access it. For example, if you install joe-blow app as the user, only YOU can access and run joe-blow. However, if you install joe-blow as root, any user can access and run the app. :)About your desktop... no app does anything as root. YOU must be root to do something as root. Are you sure you're not logged in as root? What is the output of this command?

Well, I'm sure you've heard all the bad stuff about logging into your system as root, so I won't go there.When you were installing the system, was there a part where you created a user? If not, then you'll need to create one.

If you logout of root you should be greeted with a login screen/prompt where you can log in as user.It sounds pretty inconvenient to not be able to log in to your desktop as user.

Quote

AutologinTo make SLiM automatically login as a specified user (without having to type a password) the following lines in /etc/slim.conf should be changed.# default_user        simoneUncomment this line, and change "simone" to the user to be logged into automatically.# auto_login          noUncomment this line and change the 'no' to 'yes'. This enables the auto login feature.

Thanks. I have read all the E17 wiki stuff sevearal times in an attempt to resolve me problem.Auto=login is not really what I am after as it offers no security. I may try it though to see if E will log me in as User and then work backwards to see if I can spot what is happening. -_-Well I tried the auto login instruction but Slim still will not log me in as USER.  :hysterical:

If you want to kill graphic login, just change edit your /etc/inittab to use run level 3 as the default. Also, if you want to get to a command line prompt once you're already running X, just CTRL+ALT-->BACKSPACE.

Or you can just stop Slim by doing
/etc/rc.d/slim stop
Also, why do you need a graphical login manager when you can just put in the username and password, then type startx? Instead of jumping through hoops just to login, it is much easier to use the default way of logging in.

Right B) Simplistic is usually the best method of all since there is no need to over complicate things. When I say simplistic, I do not necessarily mean easy. The Arch wiki best explains it:
Arch Linux defines simplicity as without unnecessary additions, modifications, or complications, and provides a lightweight UNIX-like base structure that allows an individual user to shape the system according to their own needs. In short: an elegant, minimalist approach.

Elegant shmelegant phoowee I like to look at a pretty picture when me pc's waking up. Also you guys "why do you need a graphical login manager when you can just put in the username and password, then type startx? Instead of jumping through hoops just to login, it is much easier to use the default way of logging in."You may want to look at your statment again.On my pc typing my user name and then typing the password is only two steps. Wheras your way I  have to type in an extra "startx" which makes it three steps. That is just a step too far for me.Mind you you may have your pc's set up with some convojiggliated arcane command line wizardry that allows you to do three steps in two. :)

Well I can do it a lot quicker using startx than logging in via a Login Manager. It also cuts down the time getting to the desktop. Of course that depends on your typing speed. I can get to the desktop in 26 seconds.https://wiki.archlin...x.php/Bootchart
