Re: geany with libcurl and curlpp (or other suggestions)

Ok, hadn't installed Geany and only read about it on some other forums, so don't blame me for not knowing it wasn't a real IDE. I know what an IDE is, so I would probably have found out myself soon. I now use Codeblocks (used it before on Windows). After a few clicks I found, as you mentioned, curlp...

geany with libcurl and curlpp (or other suggestions)

Hi there, I'm working with some people on a c++ project. We're not that experienced in c++, and especially not in developing on linux...... We found out Geany is a good IDE for cpp developing on linux. Ok, installing that is no problem at all (sudo apt-get install geany, awesome). However, now.........

Re: distro differences

Thanks for the quick replies guys, it's very clear to me now. I sort of figured out the package management on myself after reading wikipedia articles about the distro's. The release cycle has been mentioned in some article, but I sort of read over it. Also, the out-of-the-box support..... Well, that...

distro differences

Greetings, As most of the TS-er's here I'm quite new to the whole Linux thing. I'm quite excited about it, but some things are a bit hard to get used to, but I won't regret putting some effort in it. After Ubuntu I came to Linux Mint for the default codec support, and the awesome looks. However........

Re: Linux On An iPod?

I made my iPod video (30gb) a dual-boot iPod. It can dualboot in apple default OS, and rockbox. Rockbox is not linux, I know that, but it is a apple OS replacement. Linux is available for iPod, but the interface is, as far as I know, quite horrible. That's why I chose Rockbox. If you choose for dual...

Re: AVOID EXT4!

Needs to be said: this involves an "alpha tester of ubuntu 9.04" . As most of us know, alpha releases are very unstable and should therefore never be used for your primary computer (so are beta's... ). The article is dated march 19th, and it is said a patch has fixed it. TS: please check your source...

I would be happy to translate the wikipedia article into dutch, but I'm not sure citations from the english article can be used for the dutch article as well?

enable dist update

With the official release of Gloria x64, I read some posts about "enabling dist-update in MintUpdate" . Am I being retarded not being able to find that check box? (btw, there should be a homepage shoutbox or IRC channel for questions like this ... )

Re: Firefox

MintUpdate makes sure you have all the updates you need, so your Firefox is the most up-to-date (stable & safe) version. If you're interested in Firefox 3.5 RC2 you should check out the thread somewhere else on the forums here.

Argh, moment of posting I was just trying that (but with wrong syntax, relatively new to Linux.... ) . Adding to repositories worked like a charm, added key, but still no auto-update....

Re: How to install Firefox 3.5 rc2? [solved]

Am I being retarded? ..... When trying to add the repositories to the sources.list file I keep getting access denied....... Disabling mint-update didn't helped. Manual adding through synaptic package manager says I have to specify a distribution, but what would I have to fill in?

Re: Vote for Debian base as opposed to Ubuntu

I agree with Condowax. Although I'm relatively new to the Linux world, I do know the background of the distro's mentioned here, Debian, Ubuntu and Mint ofcourse. Ubuntu is a great distro that aims to be an easy but still great linux distro. It has the advantage that it has been in the "market" for q...

Thanks for the quick replies. I downloaded conky, but as quite a newbie I'm not really getting it. I'm able to start conky in terminal with simply typing conky , but it's not monitoring the temperature. I've read about specifying variables but not really getting it , sorry :oops:

I'm running it in dual-boot with windows 7 RC (which is also quite good actually). At the moment I use Linux mostly for a Frets on Fire mod...
