Re: An Example Of Why Linux Has Not Won and Never Will Win The Desktop

@Jedinovie Some of what you say is true but a lot of it doesn't relate to what I experience working here in the IT industry in the UK and from what I can see other parts of the world. Also your conclusions are, in my opinion, way off. HI upholder, i have all but finished a Looonnng reply to all you...

Re: An Example Of Why Linux Has Not Won and Never Will Win The Desktop

The following run on ARM. Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Manjaro, Arch As for Mint on ARM, it might work if an ARM capable Kernel was installed. Just guessing on that one. I doubt it. The kernel alone does not an O/S make. All the libraries and utilities that make up Mint would have to be ported over as w...

Re: An Example Of Why Linux Has Not Won and Never Will Win The Desktop

... the dirt cheap OS ARM/Linux Pinebook is upon us and selling like hot cakes! Want one? Join the year long queue! Done! And thanks for mentioning it. Looks like it'll be something amusing to play with. Heck, for $99, it'd be hard to go wrong :) Heck, maybe, by then, I'll have decided to get back ...

Re: An Example Of Why Linux Has Not Won and Never Will Win The Desktop

Given the Pinebook is, essentially, no more than a more capable Chromebook and Chromebooks have been a super best seller for years now - it's going to be a winner and Joe Public will buy the "Pinebook ][" because it will be DIRT CHEAP and do all the things 90% of the population actually w...

Re: An Example Of Why Linux Has Not Won and Never Will Win The Desktop

The main reason Linux doesn't dominate desktop is cuz lack of apps and games only available for Windows. Disagree. See my post above. What we have learned certainly since the arrival of the first netbooks is just how few apps the public really want. Once ARM and Linux can come together to provide a...

Re: An Example Of Why Linux Has Not Won and Never Will Win The Desktop

In regards to Linux winning the Desktop war - I actually believe it is inevitable for a mass of reasons, many of which are NOT presented here! As it stands, we have learned in recent years that Joe Public does not really want a fully specced out, multi-purpose laptop (certainly not a desktop unless ...

This is now ancient history but I did confirm that it is to do with the profile being set to nothing and is fixed by simply inputting '/bin/bash' in the 'command' setting.

Just in case anyone else gets worried.

Re: App/tool download scripts/lists for Neon!

I noticed neon doesn't do tab autocompletion in terminal. Did you fix that? I like said, I used Neon just because it worked and worked at the time i needed it. I have had ZERO tie to delve into Neon. That's why Mintstick does not work on my laptop yet. I use use the terminal very little. I am typin...

App/tool download scripts/lists for Neon!

OK,this is a sorta 'Quick and dirty' attempt to make Neon usable that bit faster with useful software download listings. Note that I have had to compress all files for the forum to accept them. Dunno why, it just is! Because Neon is a totally bare bones install on a par with Windows on total absenc...

Re: Recommendations for a MP3 player pleeeease!

Try Audacious. That's my player of choice and seems to do MOST of what you want. It doesn't do 3 unless you clicked 'STOP' during the song in question. The player moves to the next song once the current one finishes. This is standard behaviour for just about any video/audio player, on a computer or...

OK, can someone help me with what SHOULD be a simple matter but somehow isn't.

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

You using Neon LTS (5.8.8) or Neon User (5.11.x)? Good to hear Neon is stable. I have issues running WPS office in GTK, but WPS Linux is almost abandon ware, so that may not be KDE's fault. Netrunner is either Debian or Manjaro (rolling) based. Not Ubuntu based. Since I need Ubuntu compatibility fo...
