Boot Capacities on a new build Solved

I have said this before in previous posts, I know hardware...software not so much. My biggest weakness is Networking, well that and the fact I am about three levels of tech behind the times in some instances. I am being forced to admit the death of my current system "The Mystery Machine". She was a ...

Re: Acer Aspire NAV50

Is your Intel Atom processor affected.? To the best that I can tell everything else runs smoothly, up and down speeds hold, processes run at a reasonable speed. If I can find a driver or workaround for the display then all is good. Otherwise I may have to dust of the Win7 disk. Geez haven't dragged...

Acer Aspire NAV50

I am in the habit of rebuilding and restoring older computers fr those who are not interested in latest/greatest gaming types, these are people who want stable workhorse types.

Re: Scribus, Libre Office, & Color Management

This from the Scribus Forums user Utnik did the trick! unfortunately i couldn't work out a way to use a grayscale profile with scribus so far – the following workaround did the trick: first, you should upgrade to scribus 1.4.6 (or at least 1.4.4, the first version with support for .pdf/x-1a…) apply ...

My problem now is how to make files available to other users. I don't want my kids to have full admin access so they can't get on my profile, bu...

Finally Finished Conversion

Usually though I was sharing computers with others in my household and they didn't like having to ask me to help with every single function so those play times were short lived. I have always been decent with software but by far be...

Re: Pictures in Desktop Background

Perhaps a misunderstanding? In Linux Mint 17 and before you could add a picture with the + icon. This has been changed in 17.1. Now you add a folder (or several of them), then you choose the picture inside the settings dialogue. THAT WAS IT, once i added the folder the pictures showed up in the win...
