Re: What ?

I highly doubt the Microsoft leadership is stupid enough to think the GNU+Linux community is going to embrace them, though I suppose there's a reasonable chance this is connected with their recent announcement to build their browser based around the Chrome browser core. Would I use it? Well, for an...

Re: What printer should I get?

Crippled, never heard of that sight before, will check it out. Also your video tag line. :lol: RIH, that is the same problem I have, and why I just by the cheap ones, once the ink is gone the price is nuts to replace it. I'm sure if I needed to print for a living, or other things, I'd buy a better p...

Re: Speakers are weird

Thanks, but the only apps I'm running came with the build. I haven't installed or download anything. Could one that came with Mint cause that problem?

Re: Speakers are weird

Okay Mr Een,
I haven't had any issues since last night. Any idea what caused it to begin with? Never did the last thing you said to, although I figured out how to do it if need be. Just worried about messing with something that is working at the moment.

I does look like magic, but it's all in the leg cues and body positioning. How she stays on during the flat out run and stop is what gets to me. :lol:

Re: Anti Virus & Downloads

I wonder if anyone can offer some simple advice on the above. My understanding is that AV is not the way to go with Linux but what if I want to download a book or similar from the internet? Is there any risk to that? As I ask this I feel I am probably missing something but hopefully somebody will c...

Whats your favorite video?

This is one of my top 5 right here. The neatest thing I've ever seen and I grew up riding horses. The sheer skill, time and practice it took to do this is remarkable. Stacy Westfall, brideless, saddless free style reining.

Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

Don't know if this has been posted yet I'm new and didn't read it all, just saw the title. It's Saturday night, and if you like a Southern Country Blues feel all in one. Tennessee Whiskey was what I just started listening to tonight once my speakers stated working. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4z...

Re: Speakers are weird

Use the left/right arrow keys to select columns and the up arrow to raise the levels for your Speakers. The volume control you use is only adjusting the Master (and/or PCM) and I'm bett...

Speakers are weird

All of a sudden, my volume for my external speakers are acting strange. Little to no volume at the highest level. It's been about a month now with Linux and this the first time this has happened. I went in and changed some settings, which did help a bit, but now in the volume bar in the bottom left ...
