 first time I start Firefox, the profile manager pops up and prompts me to 
 select a profile.  All subsequent launches of Firefox use the profile that 
 I selected initially.  I want Firefox to prompt me *every* time it starts, 
 because I have created several profiles, each designed to do different 
 tasks and be open in different windows.  Each profile uses tabbed Homes so 
 I can start a number of tabs with different tasks in them.
 
 I've edited profile.ini as follows:
 StartWithLastProfile=0
 and
 StartWithLastProfile=1
 
 Neither setting makes any difference at all.  Checking and unchecking the 
 box to start on startup *also* does nothing.  (As does the prompt to make 
 firefox the default browser.)
 
 I even tried removing StartWithLastProfile entirely.  *Nothing* works. 
 There's no man pages for firefox, firefox-bin, profile.ini, profilemanager, 
 mozilla or mozilla-bin, and googling has been futile so far.
 

This is not the answer to your problem, but there is an extension called 
session saver that saves your firefox session just as you left it (with all 
the tabs intact).  You can save as many sessions as you want and reload the 
last saved or a specific one.  It might do what you want.

I don't know about how your window system shuts down, but from the command

me the same message that the system was halted, press any key to reboot.  I

your window system is doing the equivalent of -h instead of -p.

has a 6600GT.  Both are excellent price/performance.  I have a lower end 6200

Why did this work? (Flashplugin)

2006-02-22 Thread Vayu
I installed linuxpluginwrapper, linux-flashplugin-6 and linux_base-8 through 
ports.  No errors.  Created a libmap.conf with values appropriate for 6.0REL. 

I followed the same procedure that I did 3 weeks ago that successfully got 
flash playing in Konqueror on another FreeBSD 6.0REL machine.  

Neither Konqueror nor Firefox would acknowledge flash (wouldn't play it, 
didn't show it in about:plugins, nor give any errors when called from the 
command line).I deinstalled, reinstalled, I looked up each lib referenced 
in the libmap.

Finally I made a link from the libflashplayer.so 
in /usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin6 directory 
to  /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins.  That worked for Firefox (1.5) but not 
for Konqueror.

Why did that work (what went wrong in my installation) and now what do I do to 
get Flash playing in Konqueror?

Post install help

2006-01-19 Thread Vayu
I just did my first install, so far so good.  I've got KDE running.  I 
know how to play around with xorg.conf and got my screen resolution 
matching my monitor.  My network is working to the router.  Now I would 
like to get my graphics and sound cards working.


Where can I find out about getting an nVidia driver installed (I have a 
6600GT)?


Where can I find out about getting my sound card working (sound blaster 
Audigy 2)?  Right now I get no sounds anywhere in KDE.


How can trace my permission errors when I try to access my CD player in 
KDE?  (All I know about so far is to add myself to the wheel group to 
get su)


Is there a good source of HowTos anywhere?


Any help would be appreciated
