Re: Can't install Mint over Manjaro installation, recgnizes EXT 4 as EXT 2

Believe me, after more than 12 hours, this was NOT what I wanted to see! Needless to say, at 3:50AM, I am NOT a Happy Camper! I like your stubbornness! 3lzyt9.jpg BWAHAHA! Indeed!

Re: MINT is PIFSING ME OFF!!!

Well, "Sharon" is kinda cute, but does anyone have an idea of how to make the installer recognize the partition as EXT4 and not ETX2?

Re: MINT is PIFSING ME OFF!!!

Needless to say, at 3:50AM, I am NOT a Happy Camper! I would have just performed a clean install. Twenty minutes total and then your done. Here's the deal: I had a Manjaro install that I "locked" in place, because everything was working pretty much the way I wanted. When I tried to add a couple of ...

Re: VLC could not decode the format "h264"

Have you updated VLC recently?

I'm having no issues with it, but since I have an nVidia card I loaded all the nVidia codecs as well.

You can get the latest VLC codecs from their website, but that wouldn't really explain the "Run Once" issue.

Re: Linux is Not Windows

I wasn't paying attention. I do that now. Depending on your login manager, there is a down pointing caret, or a "gear" on the login window. You click that and select your choice of WMs. In KDE, on my system, it was in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. It said "Plasma", but when you click it ...

Re: Linux is Not Windows

I really miss that "feature" from Mandrake where you could load different window managers and find one you liked. Back in the day, I think I spent more time in KDE than in anything else. KDE was always too "heavy" for me. It looked good, but with a lot of overhead. I settled on Gnome2 a long time a...

Re: lightdm doesn't start, possible GPU driver problem (i915)

The Directories mentioned were the ONLY ones move to the SSD?

Did you copy and paste, or did you use some other method to move them?

Have you tried looking on the SSD with Show Hidden Files set to see if there's something that was moved by accident?

And, did you label the SSD as Home?

Understood, I started Linux 1999-2000 with Mandrake 7 which was great, although it had NO real driver support, but it was fun to use. And you could load up lots of different window managers to try out.
Same here. Got it in the back of a book at Staples.

What operating system would they be using?
I'm not sure which distro they use, but I'm pretty confident they're running it on Alienware systems.

Who knows, the Klingons may already be out around Uranus, but we would never know.
Its actually the other way around...the old joke goes like this..."what does the Starship Enterprise and toilet paper have in common?"
