    Mandrake 9.0 / KPPP & KDE 3.0 problems


    I have just started using Linux Mandrake 9.0 and seem to be having a few problems. I have tried to sort them out myself but I'm not having much luck, thought you guys may be able to help.

    Problem 1.
    I'm in the UK and I'm trying to dial my ISP using KPPP. Everything goes fine and KPPP connects as it should but when I try to browse the net using ANY browser it just keeps timing out. I can ping the ISP server but nothing past that. I have tried checking the DNS settings, both using an automatic DNS configuration and also specifying separate DNS servers, still nothing. I have just un installed Mandrake 8 and it worked fine with the same ISP. I have a dual boot on the box with Win XP pro and the ISP works fine with that.

    Problem 2.
    I have messed around with the task bar within KDE 3.0 and now when I minimize an app it does not appear on the task bar. To retrieve the app back I have to use the old Windows ALT-TAB trick. I have checked through the look n feel stuff but can't find what I've done.

    Apart from these silly problems I really like Mandrake 9 and would like to keep using it.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    ok i dont know about the first prblem, but for the second, try right clicking on the bar and finding properties or something dimilar and then check in there, there is usually an option to stop doing what its doing.

    Sorted the desktop prob, still no webpages though.
    Will check through PPP settings again. Failing that will check Mandrake's website for known issues.
