Re: [GR also EL] Posoi xristes tou ArchLinux zoun stin Ellada?

hey encelo, come stai? smile
It's good to know that the persons living in Greece that are using ArchLinux are not so many. I like it [elite, hahaha]
Just for you to know, I 've chatted with Manos who used to be a main packager if you see the PKGBUILDs smile

I also know a friend that I convert him to use ArchLinux smile
and that's all, it's fun to say to people: "I use Arch" and they say: "What is this?" Ark? smile

I also in Athens. I live in Kipseli. You? [maybe pm me]

Yeah, I've noticed the name of Manos inside many packages. I'm glad to see that an important person inside Arch is greek. big_smile

He would be the fourth in Greece to use Arch, and we would be less and less elite. big_smile

Re: [GR also EL] Posoi xristes tou ArchLinux zoun stin Ellada?

Well, I used to use slackware on my desktop pc.
For once, pacman ROCKS!! ;-)

The installation gives less hints than slack though, but I managed it . smile

A problem I have now is that I can't get Greek to work in xfterm4 & xterm.
They hang if I start them with the -lc parameter.
I do have Greek in rxvt using the font setting, but I don't have ( tonous ) and its very frustrating.
Any ideas ?

Re: [GR also EL] Posoi xristes tou ArchLinux zoun stin Ellada?

put in /etc/profile
export LANG=el_GR.UTF-8
export LC_CTYPE=el_GR.UTF-8
export LC_NUMERIC=POSIX
export LC_TIME=POSIX
export LC_COLLATE=POSIX
export LC_MONETARY=POSIX
export LC_MESSAGES=POSIX
export LC_PAPER=POSIX
export LC_NAME=POSIX
export LC_ADDRESS=POSIX
export LC_TELEPHONE=POSIX
export LC_MEASUREMENT=POSIX
export LC_IDENTIFICATION=POSIX

make sure you generate the grUTF8 locale cause it's missing
(hint: use localedef) {google it or search in the forums here}

then in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Option "XkbRules"    "xorg"
    Option "XkbModel"    "pc104"
    Option "XkbLayout"    "us,el"
    Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
    Option "XkbVariant" ",extended"

then use terminal (pacman -S terminal in XFCE4) and you're done

Re: [GR also EL] Posoi xristes tou ArchLinux zoun stin Ellada?

I have a non-unicode encoding (ie plain el_GR), and I've set xorg.conf correctly everywhere, but the terminals. I even write proper greek in rxvt, χωρίς τόνους όμως!

Thats the problem. wink
Thanks anyway though

Re: [GR also EL] Posoi xristes tou ArchLinux zoun stin Ellada?

OK, that last one sounded a little harsh, I suppose.
I should apologise.

Knowing that xterm operates in utf8 internally, do you think that missing the grUTF8 locale may be the problem ?

I'll investigate today anyway, but a second opinion might prove useful. smile

EDIT: OK, that was the problem; generating the UTF-8 locale made xterm -lc work perfectly. Now I have to set some default settings for xterm but that will be easier, I suppose big_smile

Re: [GR also EL] Posoi xristes tou ArchLinux zoun stin Ellada?

Hi again !

As you might (not) know [:P], the hard disk I had arch installed went dead(due to a faulty power supply, it seems).

Anyway, I have a new disk now, my exams are over, so I'll give arch another go. smile

cheers !

Re: [GR also EL] Posoi xristes tou ArchLinux zoun stin Ellada?

Hello.

I am from Greece too. I live in Athens.
I use Arch Linux for the past 2 months and I think it is the best distro from the ones I have tried (Gentoo,Kanotix,Mepis,Knoppel,Ubuntu,Kubuntu,Fedora Core 3) the past 8 months.

I am trying to convince people to know and try Arch Linux in the www.adsgr.com forum !!

I have a problem in printing Greek in Mozilla 1.7.8. Does anyone managed to  do that?

Thank you.

Greek in Mozilla is a somewhat common problem - you could just google it wink

Re: [GR also EL] Posoi xristes tou ArchLinux zoun stin Ellada?

Για όσους θέλουν αγγλική κονσόλα, αλλά και ελληνικά στα Χ χωρίς να χρειάζονται keyboard selectors, οι παρακάτω ρυθμίσεις μου δουλεύουν μια χαρά:

Στο /etc/inittab

# Locale settings (find your locale with 'locale -a')
export LC_TELEPHONE=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8
export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8:en_US:en
export LC_MONETARY=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_ADDRESS=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_COLLATE=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_PAPER=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_NAME=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8
export SYSFONT=lat0-16
export LC_MEASUREMENT=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_TIME=en_US.UTF-8
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_IDENTIFICATION=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_MESSAGES=en_US.UTF-8

(προσέξτε τη ρύθμιση στο LANGUAGE!)

Και στο xorg.conf τα τυπικά (δε χρησιμοποιώ πολυτονικό):

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
    Driver "keyboard"
    Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option "XkbLayout" "us,el"
    Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"
EndSection

Re: [GR also EL] Posoi xristes tou ArchLinux zoun stin Ellada?

Hello.

My printer is HP 3650 USB.

I have installed pacman -S cups ghostscript hpij

When i print with mozilla I select postscript/hp3650 and hp3650 is the printer i created through kde.

I think that a solution is the use of xprint but i am newbie and i don't know how to set this up. Anyone with a PKGBUILD?

Re: [GR also EL] Posoi xristes tou ArchLinux zoun stin Ellada?

I'll try to make a PKGBUILD for it (the scripts need patching, as they expect daemons in /etc/int.d while in Arch they are in /etc/rc.d), don't hold your breath though...
Actually I was thinking about making this package myself, as it's annoying having to use Konqueror to print some Greek webpage.
Of course the optimal solution would be reliable CUPS support within the Moz family apps, but up to date this fix doesn't seem to have a high priority... Evangelizing their xprint stuff the wrong way, probably? big_smile

Φίλε περιμένω το PKGBUILD που θα μας επιτρέψει να τυπώνουμε ελληνικά στο mozilla.
