My name is Lars and lives in Sweden. I have finally bought
FreeBSD 5.2 and the handbook from the FreeBSD-mall. That's
great! I've wanted to leave the Windows-world and I have
been testing Linux for a few years.
But I have some problems with my FreeBSD-installation, and I
hope someone here can help me!
Facts: FreeBSD5.2 (feb 2004 version), IBM Thinkpad (laptop
with 300Mhz Intel II, 96Mb RAM and 20Gb HDD.
1. Since I have been used to KDE over the years, I have
decided to continue with that, but it locks up the entire
computer - sometimes when I start KDE, and mostly when I
shut it down.
2. In frustration over KDE-issues I tested Gnome. Quite
pretty Window Manager, but I never got any working keyboard
there. Ideas? And can I run KDE-applications in Gnome? I use
Kstars a lot.
3. In Sweden we have some exciting extra wovels... but the
keymaps never seem to find them. What do I do wrong? What
kind of a keyboard do I have on a Thinkpad anyway?! At some
configurations I've got the > and <, but no ~, and of course
the opposite has also happened.
Um... I think that's all for now. Hope someone can help!
Thanks in advance!
