Re: State of the art

None taken. Your sense of humor is like your outlook - one-sided and nonexistent.

Re: State of the art

Yes, I understand what you attempted to pass across...

My favourite command is:

Code: Select all

~$ who | grep -i blonde | date; cd ~; unzip; \
touch; strip; finger; mount; gasp; \
yes; uptime; umount; sleep
Cheers

Of course, I much prefer to be spied upon by nobody. But if being spied upon is inevitable, then I prefer to be spied upon by a Western democracy that shares the values and culture of my country.

Re: State of the art

Only if you happened to be a convicted criminal or a prisoner of war (not all POW's ended up as slaves in the salt mines and the fields). Neither of which applies to you, I presume, so rest assured: you would be safe. :lol: I come from a former Roman province that gave birth to quite a few re-known...

Re: State of the art

Anyway: it's fascinating to contemplate that magnificent ancient civilization. Imagine where we would be today, if it wouldn't have been destroyed in the onset of the Dark Ages. When not chained in some dark catacomb, fighting for our life with lions in some arena to please the plebs. :mrgreen: Any...

Re: Seeking more capable system dialogs.

I will add that you can try many KDE distros at distrotest.net live, in your browser window, without the need to download iso's and burn. There's no Neon (probably due to its experimental nature) but you can give a go to Kubuntu which is very similar to Mint, except for the used DE. It installs the ...

Well, Murray, there's D-Bus. Is no one implimenting it? Philosphy Example: I open Synaptic to see whether I have dbus installed. I do. I want to swipe-copy the version number, but Synaptic doesn't support swiping. If I want to manually copy the version number I have to open 'xed', un-maximize it, t...

Re: Sell me on Mint!

It's a mere difference in the workflow habits - and you have already stated that it's a "pointless" hassle. True that, if he perceives that having new/more in workflow possibilities is pointless, what could you sell to such a closed mind? You can try, but the best it can do, is dwindle the best des...

Re: Deepin. Who? Yes, you know Deepin, the most likely candidate for mass popularity of Linux.

I'm sure interested in giving Deepin desktop a fair trial, at some point. It seems more usable i.e. less nailed down than Pantheon or Budgie.

Re: Sell me on Mint!

^ These are still valid 5 points... The 6.th reason I would add would be, no easy way to create a desktop shortcut to open documents. Instead, Ubuntu only offers a dummy template, demonstrating the way to create a *.desktop file.

Re: Opening current web page with a different browser

I've tried again Cinnamon virtually and it uses gnome-terminal and made sure it also supports the execute switch. Made changes to code in previous post accordingly.

Hi, The simplest way of doing this is to just copy the url from your regular browser and then run the script with a keyboard shortcut you assingned.

Re: caja slow in mate

Maybe there are too many thumbnails in cache and that slows it down... Did you try deleting them? Edit: in addition, I open a folder with 8,500 files (perhaps that qualifies as large) in 3.5s and refresh is made in 2s and is not so slow to me given the numbers. Folders with few files are refreshed i...

Thanks for all your answers. But I'm still struggling :( I'm running out of ideas (I'm a linux novice though). Do you have any idea ? Maybe a cron to wake the computer before it or some setting to prevent it from getting "stuck" during shutdown process ? Maybe some logs could help you ? Here are my...

Re: launch caja with N folders in 1 window with N tabs

Yes, but you have not entered the -t flag before the URIs. However, if you don't see -t mentioned in man pages for Caja, that could mean that Caja version coming with LM 19, doesn't support it.

Cheers.
