Re: How to verify the ISO image on Windows

Every time i try and do an Authenticity Check i get "gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure" error message, anyone got any ideas on how to fix it? Same here. I assume it is related to the updates not being signed issue from a while ago, and the mirror I downloaded it from hasn't ...

Re: How do I install and configure a different desktop environment?

That's ok, it means we have to figure out a more technical solution. There is a Mate-desktop-environment, though I keep forgetting to change my session on startup. I'll do that now and see if that option is available. edit It is. Posting from Mate, which floats along at about 550 MB versus the 850 M...

Re: How do I install and configure a different desktop environment?

It seems that mint-meta-mate is not in synaptic as per the latest update for LMDE 3 Cinnamon. Software manager and apt-get say the same.

Re: [solved]Working with binary files

wxHexEditor is what I use for other tasks, it's fine except for this and the compare functionality (which causes it to crash on LMDE 3). Since we're comparing hex editors, my favorites (both Windows only, unfortunately) are XVI32 and Hexecute, though Hexecute is open source so maybe someone can port...

Re: cinnamon-settings power throws an error

Thanks, just wanted to report it before I tried another DE. And you are correct, I am LMDE 3.

cinnamon-settings power throws an error

The power applet displays in my panel (it appears to work but doesn't display exact percentage of power remaining, if I am plugged in, or when I am fully charged) and clicking on it brings up context menus, Clicking on anything in the context menus does nothing, though the slider does modify brightn...

Re: Working with binary files

Bless crashes when I scroll down while highlighting bytes. Actually it crashes constantly, but that is the one which most effects me. There is a fork of it but the compilation instructions are flawed, as ./configure does nothing. How's about also simply dd? dd if=infile bs=1 skip=100 count=100 of=ou...

How do I install and configure a different desktop environment?

Just idling with Cinnamon using between 700 and 1200 MB of memory, far too much for a machine with only 4 GB of RAM. 1. Is installing a different DE as simple as installing all the relevant packages? 2. How do I configure them? 3. How do I ensure this other DE is what starts up at boot, instead of C...

[solved] Working with binary files

I need to rip a certain number of bytes starting from a specific address in a specific file. Normally I would use a hex editor (my favorite on Windows was xvi32) to simply highlight the bytes, copy them, and paste them into a new file created with the same. Now I can't find a hex editor on Linux tha...

Re: Installing Mint on a Chromebook?

Well ChromeOS is officially the worst operating system I have ever seen in my life, worse even than Windows 8 and 10. It has almost no programs and no way to install any. Whoever made this sorry thing should be publicly flogged and banned from touching a computer for the rest of their lives.

Re: Installing Mint on a Chromebook?

Pretty sure it's Intel, since there's a sticker on it that says so. I'm not sure how to check since there's no terminal emulator and I'm not sure if it's actually shutting down completely when it does so - there's no boot screen where you can poke around. edit I tried logging into a gmail account an...

Installing Mint on a Chromebook?

Doesn't appear that there's a terminal emulator. How does one install or run a program on a chromebook? I need to sha256sum the Mint image and burn it to a flash drive.

Re: What's a good Linux distro suitable for rooted Android products?

You're right, I found the half-remembered post I was looking for on 7chan's Thrifty Living stickied thread. The author described rooting old Android devices and installing AOSP compiled with SEAndroid, then selling them on Craigslist instead of getting a real job. It's a shame there isn't a good Lin...

Re: How would you make a language that does system programming better than C?

Haven't read the papers you link to at this point but the question that is the topic I am inclined to answer with "perhaps not unlike https://www.rust-lang.org/en-US/ ". Certainly I feel that that a newer systems programming language needs newer and more ingrained parallelism support as perhaps the...

How would you make a language that does system programming better than C?

I recently read this paper (PDF warning) which is a response to this paper (again, PDF warning) and various criticisms of C. After reading both of them, I found myself with a lot of questions. 1. What would a language that does C's job better than C look like? 2. How can you make a language more com...

I want to root my phone but I'm not sure what exactly would replace the operating system. What software and drivers are needed to send and receive texts and calls? What role does my service provider play in this, if any? If I root my phone can my service provider still identify my phone such that I ...
