    Default Newbie on Linux

    Hie everyone,

    I'm totally new to linux( third days with it) but not afraid to learn and struggle on it
    I've installed scribes on my desktop and when i lauch it nothing seems to happen.
    I open a terminal ( i use gnome desktop ) log as root and type scribes to see what happen.
    Here's the error generated:

    bus = cls._new_for_bus(address_or_type, mainloop=mainloop)
    dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

    I guess i include all dependencies to that package.
    The error generated is far to advanced for me right now, i really don't get what happen.

    Can anybody explain me thta mistake and how to fix it?

    Cheers

    P.S Sorry for my average english as i m thai citizen.

    how did you install it? via YaST, zypper, or what? scribes *is* in the
    packman repository and availailable for easy installation and addition
    to your menu that way..


    > I open a terminal ( i use gnome desktop ) log as root and type scribes
    > to see what happen.


    why do you launch it by opening a terminal? is it not in your menu? if
    not, then that is probably because you installed it in a non-normal
    way. [i can only guess that you have windows experience and tried to
    install that way (download, double click, etc) which is NOT the way to
    do it...instead, add packman to your yast repos, search for scribes,
    click its box, click "Accept" and everything else is just magic..]

    why do you launch it as root? as far as i know it is a normal user
    application....right?

    okay, i had never heard of "scribes" (and have been using Linux for
    most of 10 years, so that should tell you how "main line" scribes is!!)..

    so, i just installed it while writing you..and, now i click

    Menu > Utilities > Editor > Scribes Text Editor

    and scribes springs to life...just text editor (ok i didn't spend a
    lot of time looking for its PROMISE of "ensuring common and repetitive
    operations are intelligently automated."

    ok, so Scribes is now the fourth GUI text editor on my machine and i
    can tell you it is nowhere near as good as gedit, which i bet is
    already installed on yours....try:

    Menu > Utilities > Editor > gedit

    i think you will find it more like notebook or whatever you were using
    in Windows...

    and! now that it is installed on my machine i can do this:

    hold down the Alt button and press F...a new window pops up, into the
    blank there i type scribes and then click the "Run"
    button...and, scribes pops onto my screen....no need to open a
    terminal, no need to become root....no nothing....

    are you trying to run scribe on the machine you are sitting at, or on
    another machine connected via the network?

    ok...i try it your way (open terminal, become root, type scribes,
    press enter) and scribes pops onto my screen...no error..

    i guess you have installed it on your machine wrong..

    YaST automatically takes care of all dependencies..

    i don't get what is happening on your machine either!!



    > Can anybody explain me thta mistake and how to fix it?


    i do NOT have any idea how to uninstall the scribes you put
    there...but, my guess is you can just forget it...that is leave it
    alone and install now using YaST and all will be ok..

    AND, spend some time reading about your powerful new operating
    system....i'd suggest you begin here: http://en.opensuse.org/Concepts
    which among other things talks about installing software..

    and, don't miss the official start up guide:
    http://www.novell.com/documentation/...0_startup.html

    caf4926, natural_pilot
    Thanks you guys for the time.
    Unfortunatily, none of your solution seems to work

    Especially installing packman witch crash the pc down 2 times.
    for some unknow reason.Whatever for now, I took time to digg little bet into Gedit witch could do the job for me as i'm webdesigner.

    I also took bluefish witch had a "snippet look like" support, i like it.

    So, i'll take the necessary time to learn about this all new environment. I already order a book from apress teaching linux command line and follow up with some basic concept of suse as natural_pilot suggested.

    Thanks again guys.

    If you need an IDE for web designing, check if Aptana fits your needs. Its a great as far as I am concerned . Here is the link: Aptana
