Re: Canon Pixma, Scangear and Gimp - help.

Thanks. That was equal parts condescending, rude, and useless.

Canon Pixma, Scangear and Gimp - help.

Hey all. I'm using ... actually, I have no idea how to find the name of my version. How do I do that? I believe it's Serena MATE, anyway. I picked up a Canon Pixma MG2960 to replace a replacement for an old HP MFP a few weeks ago, been using to print without a hitch, needed it to scan today and ran ...

Re: Can you help me understand how to backup my data?

Back in Time should be, what you need. Has a GUI, saves space and time in cases, where a file has not been changed since the last backup, can do this more or less full automated. 2 remarks: Backing up only every 2 months is possibly far to seldom. Backups need to get stored on an external media. If...

Can you help me understand how to backup my data?

Hi all. I'm not really a newbie, but I understand so little about this issue I figured this is the best place for this question. I have 1x 1TB laptop drive and 2x 1TB external drives. I have about 1.6TB of data. So I put "Library" (movies, music, books) on one drive and "Work Backup" on the other. W...

Re: VLC Stuttering.

That does indeed seem to fix the problem, and it does indeed seem to do everything VLC does! SMPlayer it is! Thanks, Yellowbeard! :D

(Not sure about that YouTube viewer, though. It appears to do everything YouTube in Firefox does... except block ads, so... not as good.) :roll:

VLC Stuttering.

Hi gang! Since installing LMDE I've had a problem with VLC stuttering on video playback. MKV and MOV files stutter every three or four seconds. Several sources via Google suggest this is a hardware problem, however, I was running VLC via Debian Wheezy on this same hardware and there was no problem w...

Specific audio splitting and tagging software!

Hi all, I installed LMDE a few months ago and it's great. However, my previous installation of Debian had a specific application that I can't remember the name of. Googling for the last hour has driven me mad with no results. Don't ask me why I can't remember the name of a great and essential piece ...
