I've gone to TED's a few times and do get the feelings here expressed too!
(doesn't take much!)

But, seeing that some have taken out a bit of their Latin...
I figured this one would blend in well with what can be broadcasted on TED's.

SRS came with the LG laptop i have (which is good), wonder how it compares to DFX?
Would a trial installation of DFX come into conflict with SRS?

@tomos,

There's a session saver incorporated and a shortcut key 'ctrl+alt+s'

Now if i can find the 'search as you type' feature i like so much about Firefox ...
6  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: K-Meleon anyone? on: February 13, 2014, 08:25:01 AM
Good point.
Extensions have always been a if not the major player for Firefox.  Kiss
I just don't understand the disrepect the Mozilla Foundation is showing to extension devs by removing the addons bar for example.  thumb down

p.s. did notice that K-Meleon is working on Linux version too!
7  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / K-Meleon anyone? on: February 13, 2014, 07:59:28 AM
With Firefox (Chrome) Australis on the way soon, i'm considering viable alternatives like Seamonkey, Palemoon and even K-Meleon which is now at 74b2 !


Anyone recall this lightweight browser?

Not a problem! I've unfortunately done the same in the past. Apology accepted.

Did do some more homework and checked out at LinuxMint forums - the solution to dual booting Linux with Windows 8 is not an easy one!
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: February 11, 2014, 06:42:46 PM
Windows 7 and Nexus 7 are mine.
The Windblows 8 is my friends.
Sorry Microsoft but i just can't appreci8.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: February 11, 2014, 04:12:07 PM
A friend of mine has Windows 8 and i tried to work with it - all i can say is 'yuck'!

Now i want to propose she dual boot with LM 16 but it's not a LTS so i was wondering if it is possible to upgrade when the time comes or is it better to re-install?






Wonder if 40hz has made it his definite OS?
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 23, 2013, 09:00:14 PM
Is it just me?
I find the sound from Youtube comes out better on headsets in LinuxMint.
Can't say the same for integrated speakers though.

@TaoPhenix,
Do tend to let myself be uselessly distracted by gadgets.
It's hard 'cause our eyes always want to see more and all the other senses too!
Windows 7 is truly one of the best Microsoft has ever come out with and i still don't know it as good as i should.
Too busy dabbing with various Linux distros and now, with a Google Nexus 7!
Handy stuff but also time consuming...

Must admit though, that LinuxMint 16 (especially Cinnamon), worthy to be installed over old Vista.

Too bad ScreenShotCaptor doesn't work in Linux.
With its own scan driver, it could have done the job replacing CanoScan's ?
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 16, 2013, 08:23:12 PM
Thank you for the excellent footwork Edvard!
That webpage is another keeper for sure!

At least 40hz has spared me from doing what that bird did to its computer.
Quite the depiction that was!  cheesy
Have that exact want when obliged to work with someone who still has Vista.  thumb down
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 16, 2013, 03:04:47 PM
That's what i always try to do 40hz.
In fact, i went over to LM forums, not only post link and text of your solution but also [Solved] in the header (proper étiquette).

Suppose the CanoScan LiDE70 is a hopeless case though.
But that's okay, i'm not into big scanning projects lately.
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 16, 2013, 12:14:47 PM
@40hz!

I really wasn't expecting any kind of miracle to happen here, but you just made my day!
hplip was already there so i went onto the next step hplip-gui and there was one item missing.
Installed that, then went to preferences and the HP toolbox told me i was missing a driver i managed to download from 'recommended' option and it worked!!!  Thmbsup
Woohoooh!!!  Cool

You should apply for a job a LinuxMint!

Muchos gracias hermano!

I didn't really want to post this!
LinuxMint 16 Cinnamon installs the driver for the HP 1018 printer but it can never print anything.
Tried out Pinguy and there's no support for that printer either.
ElementaryOS (even if it keeps asking for user p.w. to install a driver at boot) works just fine.
Even if the later is nice and fast too, i still prefer LinuxMint Cinnamon.
Can't have your cake and icing.

No problem and... thank you for introducing me to another good linux webpage! Wink

40hz, i believe the 'here' link is missing.
On the same wintery slope of reviews... i don't recall Dedoimedo ever so enthused about a linux distro here.
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 10, 2013, 05:23:31 AM
This tutorial seems to have made some happy people:

@40zh

That's better!
Went to the nvidia319 (recommended) in settings, rebooted things look better.
Thanks!  Thmbsup
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 09, 2013, 04:45:38 PM
BTW, glad i could have been of some use to you 40hz!
It's odd that Chromium has the option to hide system title bar and borders.
Guess Dedoimedo is right on his recent rant about Mozilla ?

Here it is :
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA G96M [GeForce GT 130M] bus-ID: 01:00.0
           X.Org: 1.14.3 drivers: (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) FAILED: nouveau Resolution: 1366x768@60.0hz
           GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on NV96 GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 9.2.1 Direct Rendering: Yes

(something is missing or failing).

That Toolbar Autohide is working just fine. Here it is at work:
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
I've got the LM panel sent to the top, could this have an impact?
Thunderbird behaves in same manner.
Not very nice when you a black theme and nice long greyish horizontal bar.
