    Hey folks! We know you expected Alpha today to have some fun after the Christmas fuzz is over, but we have to share that it is delayed till January 15th. Reasons? Hardware taking an early holiday and KDE Plasma 5 simply isn’t ready yet (and making a 4.x based release for testing doesn’t make that …

    A little late, but the November issue of the French Linux Magazine “Linux Identity Kit” included a DVD with OpenMandriva Lx and a 24 pages guide. We proudly read that OpenMandriva has a “seductive desktop environment”. Thank you!

  • LDTP installation
    gassho on Thu, 27 Nov 2014 08:21:18 +0000


    I'm working on test automation, and I need LDTP in this purpose.
    I tried it on a OpenMandriva 4.0 updated.

    In rpmdrake, it is possible to install LDTP v2.0.5, but a simple "import ldtp" fails in python 2.7. Note that dependency to pyatspi is missing.
    The error is:
    could not import gobject (error was: ImportError('When using gi.repository, you must not import static modules like "gobject". Please change all occurences of "import gobject" to "from gi.repository import GObject".',))
    The problem is that it appears in gi module itself, exactly when doing "from ._gi import _API".
    I will put a complete trace in a second message.

    When downloading last version of LDTP (v3.5.0) and processing installation, a simple "import ldtp" also fails in python (2.7 or 3.3).

    Has anyone a solution ?


  • no icons in systray [solved]
    Giorgio on Mon, 22 Dec 2014 14:29:20 +0000

    Several icons disappeared in systray, only KMix is still there. Instead of icons there are red circles with horizontal white bar. Pointer over one of these give this message:

    Unable to load the widget
    Could not create a declarative appletscript ScriptEngine for the Network Management widget
    Very bad because unexpected and I've no network connections available. Perhaps this happened after a recent (yesterday) update.

    OpenMandriva 2014.1 updated regularly.
