Re: Installing Manjaro on my main box

:think: I had some problem with the live installer on the community kde iso. Maybe there is some relation?
If you succeed with this, it might give me the map to Manjaro! :berserkf

Re: Linux Mint "Olivia" 15 is released

Well, yes, I did install Arch once, before, and it is an option. You have really figured out a lot of options and made recipes for us, thanks. :greetings

I will get to it when homework is done, whenever that may be. Thankfully, God has invented Mondays. :-D

Re: Linux Mint "Olivia" 15 is released

:wall: Ok, I tried the DVD and added 'nomodeset' to kernel options. This got me much the same as before.

Re: Linux Mint "Olivia" 15 is released

The default DE is XFCE which is very good and they use the lxdm login manager. I have installed both openbox and KDE on it, but you can download the dedicated versions where all is done for you. So, I got the latest x86_64 KDE community iso, verified sha1sum, burned with wodim, and verified the bur...

Re: Linux Mint "Olivia" 15 is released

Thanks, that's helpful. Sounds like, if I break faith with rpm, I would give a go with Manjaro! :berserkf

Re: Linux Mint "Olivia" 15 is released

:gimme All these reviews sure are making for some greener-looking grass.

:wall: I'm just having problems with my Brother MFC665-CW that is, probably, more the fault of the drivers than the distro, tho. :think:

Thanks for the reports. :greetings

Re: Mageia 3

:B So, you can sweeten the pot, for me, maybe, if you have some experience with making something like I have in KDE over in the Openbox world. :) For example :A https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1286780/images/obox/ob-kde1.jpeg I have buttons for kcontrol and konsole, which looks not too hard to d...

Re: Mageia 3

Thanks for another good howto. I am starting to get frustrated with so many things to personalize in the KDE settings and how going through the infinite combinations to try to get something workable wastes so much time. For one thing, somebody ought to sit down before any release and get a generic d...

Re: Microsoft and Google are at it again

Well, I don't know what all the rules are but I've seen Youtube change to defeat other parties' attempts to use the videos for another purpose, like minitube breaking and needing a rewrite periodically. Google needs to make money to pay for the services but there will never be enough money made. The...
