Calibre won't install

I am trying to find a replacement for my beloved LM9 (Isadora) x64 OS. LM9 spoiled me as it always just worked, never crashed and was always stable. Having tried most of my apps in LM14.1 Cinnamon (too flaky currently), LM13 KDE with KDE packports to 4.9.4 currently (too clumsy and slow) and have fi...

Re: [SOLVED] LOST CINNAMON! COULD I PLEASE GET SOME HELP?!!

My Cinnamon x64 has been doing this since day 1 - I thought it was some sort of security feature - and have left it there like a locked screensaver type of thing. If I right click I can change wallpapers and stuff, but that's about all. What I do is when I get the Wallpaper and just the mouse cursor...

Re: Impressive pdf viewer fails to follow links

@zabenka
I use pdf-shuffler - it's in the LM9 repository - don't know about later versions - very useful little program.

Make new pdfs from multiple pages, shift pages around within a document or delete pages.

Re: Screen Resolution

Also a quick fix is:

Start Firefox and when at a small print page, hold down left CTRL key on keyboard and scroll the mouse wheel back or forwards to get the right size for your eyes.

I have found this the quickest fix and the page preferences once zoomed seem to be saved somewhere in Firefox.

Could you possibly do one for Australia please ?

I currently use the plain Ivy covered LM logo on all the machines for my clients, but an Aussie one would be special.

Thanks for your work - it looks great.

Re: Linux Mint Isadora - DVD Cover v2

I likem - with your case labels and dowgdocs dvd/cd labels, it makes a complete package for Isadora to give to my friends and clients.

Will wait for your x32 & x64 bit dvd designs, then download the lot.

Thanks for your work - much appreciated.
