Re: Would Linux be more popular with LESS choice?

40% vs 60% with almost 100 votes total. I think that's a significant % of Linuxers who agree with my thoughts about there being too much choice in Linux.

Solved! Used info from here to help. Had to put this in the launch command (Menu Editor/Skype/Command): LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype.real You might have to do this first in terminal: sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/skype.real I'm using Mint 8 still, so this may be the reason why. ...

It also has as a dependency, visualboyadvance : "An emulator for Gameboy and Gameboy Advance systems." I'm not much of a gamer, so just going by what it says. They have a Game section at thei...

Re: Would Linux be more popular with LESS choice?

The amount of choice is only indirectly responsible for the low popularity. I know there's other reasons. Just highlighting this one. To be popular, Linux needs to have lots of high quality *finished* software and official driver support. +1 It isn't going to happen unless there's going to be a sin...

Re: Would Linux be more popular with LESS choice?

ok well no disrespect (perhaps the only person on this thread to use that phrase) but i disagree with you. I believe what is stifling linux more than anything is... Well that's not really the topic. The topic is "Would Linux be more popular with LESS choice?" not "What's stifling linux the most?"

Chakra is quickly becoming my favorite. Rolling, stable (as far as I can tell), polished, and has a great community.

Re: Not a COM32R image

I'm having this same problem using Startup Disk Creator to make a USB persistent boot. Doing a little research, it may be because of the current version of Syslinux , which is 4.01.

Re: M10 KDE NetworkManager saves connection but doesnt show

How do you get the kdewallet to stop asking for your password at startup to enter wifi? I checked "connect automatically" in the Network Connections.

I do notice there is no "Apply to All Users" as I think earlier version had.
