keys.cfg not found
« on: February 02, 2004, 03:28:57 pm »

When I'm starting Uqm I've got error message like:
"Error: Could not copy default key config to user config dir: No such file or directory.".
I'm trying under RedHat Linux 7.3
What should I do?

I am not a expert at this - but my advice is to search for the file (I am sure your CPU has the search function somewere) once you find it - try to put it in the place it belongs (of which I have no idea where that would be). Anyone else?

If you don't know, don't answer...

Look in your home directory for a directory named '.uqm'
It should be invisible (what with the filename starting with a dot)

If that is there, see what's in it. Is there a keys.cfg file? That is your user's keys file.

Now, go to the content directory of uqm. Is there a starcon.key file sitting there or anywhere nearby?

That is the key defaults file.

You just want to get more posts.... Smiley

Anyway for the question, I think there was a thread about the exact same problem you had, but it was long time ago... I will have to dig a little bit to find it...

There was such a thread, but it was about M$ windoze, not our exalted linux.  Grin

I had the same msg. Did you unzip the files too? Because they aren't supposed to, just place the *.zip files there instead of unzipping. Hope This helps

I think he already solved the problem, since he didn't post for it again. But he might didn't solve it...
