Gnome-Pie....

Is anyone using Gnome-Pie regularly, please? I downloaded and installed it and set up several slices, but I can find no way to launch anything. For example, I went into preferences and set up Firefox and chose the option to launch it. Went to the Gnome-Pie menu on the panel, but there are only optio...

Re: Headphones...

Antikythera's suggestion is the best/easiest option, but just for info I have a pair of Sennheiser 580s that I recently refurbished with new cable etc. On the cable connectors there's a small 'L' and an 'R' molded into the outer side of the black plastic where they plug into the headset - not easy ...

Re: Headphones...

What you can do is just use the sound test dialogue. Open Sound from the application menu, click on Test sound and click on Front Left and Front Right. If you hear them through the correct ears you are all set. Thank you! I think I'm getting old, as your suggestion was the perfect solution. To my s...

The headphones are Sennheiser. I cannot find any marks on them to indicate Left or Right :( Your reply has prompted me to do a little more research. So I'll get my a into g and do something.

Headphones...(SOLVED)

I watch a lot of reaction videos, and it suddenly struck me I must be wired wrongly :-)

Every Reactor wear the headphones with the e power lead on their left ear. Is this done for a purpose, other than personal preference. I ask because I do the opposite.

Re: Firefox - sorting Top Sites...

Thank you, Pierre. Solved the problem instantly. Why didn't such a basic solution to such a basic question occur to me? Perhaps I'm getting old. No, let's be honest, at 89 I AM old :-)

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Aurora is a Norwegian singer and prolific songwriter. She rarely sings songs written by others. In my opinion - and I am not qualified to write this - she could be on the autistic spectrum. However, unlike others with autism her world is not entirely black or white as her songs encourage her audienc...
