i used to use #!CB xfce but now i decided to try LMDE the more stable version since i want to keep it that way during my studies for RHCSA, i want to have some VMs running CentOS.
i really like what you guys have done with my precious Debian but i have some quirks....
1. no matter what i do i can't make windows to open on the center of the screen....
is it somewhere locked?
i change it here but i see no effect and on #!CB it used t work
window manager tweaks -> placement
2. i have a .bash_aliases file but it doesn't work when i start LMDE i have to do . .bash_aliases (or source .bash_aliases) do i have to enable something on .bashrc?
3. i have several videos on my HD, using multiple codecs, since i prefer to use umplayer and vlc instead of totem, i tried from thunar (properties of the file) change the app that opens the videos, somehow i can't.....confused?
when i try to change from totem to vlc for example on a mp4 file i simply can't, it always keeps totem
4. regarding an app, handbrake.
#aptitude show handbrake-gtk
Automatically installed: no
#apt-cache policy handbrake-gtk
but after install i get this from the about: HandBrake rev4474 (x86_64), is it the same version?
i ask this because i can't find the option for the final size of the file only for CONSTANT QUALITY AND BITRATE, on the version i had installed on #!CB i had the size of the file (700Mb etc), i used to have the SID repos active on mey #!CB
and for now it is just these things
P.S. is there a reason for not use Icedove and Iceweael and instead have firefox and thunderbird?
thanks in advance
