Re: Firefoxs's Screensaver, saves where what??

The default save location would be in Downloads, unless you specified another location.

Apparently Android is built on Linux. Why then can I not find an Android device using a Linux OS?
Ubuntu was ported over to some devices, with full phone capabilities. I tried it out on my Oneplus One and it worked pretty good. Kinda a PITA to get all set up though, but cool non the less.

Re: Is it time for me to upgrade my old PC?

Don't recall when I built this tower, but it's been some time back, maybe 15 yrs or more. This pc ran LM Cinnamon fine when I tried it out, just don't like how Cinnamon looks, so didn't keep it. I run XFCE and have for years now. MB- ASRock N68C-GS FX Video- Nvidia 9600 GT CPU- AMD Athlon II X2 Ram-...

Re: xfce 19.3 upgrade - volume icon too big?

Go to Panel Preferences > Appearance
Turn off Adjust size automatically for icons
Set fixed size whatever you prefer.

I had the same issue with the new Xapp status plugin, it was way bigger than my other panel icons and it just looked bad. The above fixed it.

Re: ? format Hdd Linux compatible with win10

If you want to use it as just data storage, you can format it as NTFS, that way both linux and Windows can read/write to the drive.

Re: Backups

It is actually good that root/boot is on a separate drive, makes things easier to work with if things go south. I have three hdd's: sda1- 160 GB for system/boot sdb1 - !TB for home sdc1 - 1TB for backups and swap If anything happens to my boot/root drive, just replace and/or reinstall os without aff...

Logged out/in and it was ok at first, then started the same thing. I then dropped to tty1 and then back to X and everything worked fine from then on till i reboot...

Re: Global DNS change with LM 17 Live DVD / but IP from DHCP

On a side note, if you are behind a router, go into the router settings and set the desired DNS servers. This way, every time you turn on the pc, run live cd or connect to wifi, you automatically use the DNS servers set in the router, if you have auto assigned ip.

Re: Move home dir and reinstall grub?

you could move the /home directory to the bigger HDD, but it would be even easier to just move your data over to that big HDD instead, - keeping just the minimum on the /home directory of that 80Gb HDD. movies, music, documents - that sort of stuff, can all be moved over. Ok, say I format the windo...
