Re: simple sentence. zero dimensional space (consciousness, basics) [SOLVED]

Time Cube! I knew the PDF looked familiar. The only thing that came to mind was The Church of the SubGenius, but it really looks a lot like Gene Ray's ramblings. It also resembles UseNet kook Archimedes Plutonium. I am pretty sure it isn't Ray or Archimedes, but it has the markings of their special...

Re: simple sentence. zero dimensional space (consciousness, basics) [SOLVED]

@waive15 - No need to apologize. You did not force me to search for the source and try to make sense out of whatever that was. I have wasted a lot more time on ventures that make a lot less sense. You should not try to understand this "simple sentence" because it is complete nonsense, and it will no...

When in doubt, go to the source. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwKGUQT72I8a7-zHVbeJYtg?feature=emb_subscribe_title This link takes you to an 8-second video of nothing much. It offers a link to the same video, as well as a link to a 17-page PDF that, the best I can figure, counts as the supporting...

Re: Testers wanted: new inxi/pinxi feature, smartctl data in -D disk section

You have to install smartctl (package smartmontools) to do the -Da test, note the error message there. I did not look at the output closely and missed the error.

Re: [Solved] messed up man pages

I know this is marked Solved, but I find viewing man pages from the Yelp utility is much easier than from a terminal. I think Yelp is a hidden gem that is almost fatally marred by a severe lack of documentation ... and sometimes it will turn zombie. You launch Yelp from a terminal, and the command s...

Re: Why is 19.3 a bodge?

Upgrading from 19.2 to 19.3 keeps Gimp but a fresh installation creates a bodged system. I have now to download from Gimp.org and get the latest 4.10 which is far better and with greater features. Let me start by saying I disagree with the decision to remove GIMP and all of the reasons used to just...

Re: Install new Darktable 3.0 on Linux Mint Sylvia (Ubuntu 16.04) ?

Let me start with suggesting you avoid this PPA - I am not aware of it causing any problems, but I think it is more prudent to wait for Pascal de Bruijn to update the "official" PPA. Also, unless I am mistaken this PPA will not update a LM 18.x system past dt 2.4.4. The "official" PPA is also stuck ...

The Etcher AppImage works well for me. It should be working for you, too. Based on the information you provided, you are trying to run a 64-bit AppImage on a 64-bit OS, the ownership is correct, the AppImage is executable, and the file specs are correct. (I am almost positive the Etcher AppImage com...
