People behind KDE: Charles Samuels

Charles Samuels is this week's subject for the popular series of questions from Tink in the not less famous People... series of interviews. Here is your chance to learn a bit about the author of the multimedia swiss army knife that comes with KDE-2.x, popularly known as Noatun. Charles notes that Jason Katz-Brown knows how to pronounce this unforgettable name.


Makes me fell like a piece of crap 28 year old with no codeing skills.

To cod at 16 is nice, but it is not too late for you to start coding too. Good luck

is it possible to use esound or oss instead of arts with noatun?

I get lots of freezes (in noatun)while trying to play mp3. Killing noatun and restarting it = no sound. I suspect these problems are arts related. Anyone know how to kill arts and restart it?

Yeah, just go to the "sound server" part of KControl, uncheck and then re-check a box, and click "apply." That will restart aRts. However, if you are having problems with aRts, simply killing and restarting it will not do much good. Playing with the response time slider helped a lot for me.

aRts isn't perfect yet, hopefully in the future it will become bug-free.

I agree it is really a shame that kmysql has been abandoned. It means we have to maintain kde1 compatibility forever.
