Mac like features with linux docks.

Number 4 in the attached picture. Is there any way linux has this feature (stacking of icons) with any software? I am using Docky at the moment (formerly known has GnomeDock, I think).

Thank you in advance,

Having seperate partitions allows you to reinstall the OS without loosing your valuable data. Should I partition my HDD upon installing the OS, or is it also okay...

Fresh install. Should I partition my HDD?

Hi, In windows, it was wise to partition your HDD. A partition for windows and regularly used software and one and more other partitions for everything else. The reason behind this was, the HDD could acces the windows partition with the apps faster. Is this also the case for Linux? I prefer 1 partit...

Re: Auto Mount Partitions on Boot (also Windows partitions)

OK, it looks like you already created the /media/Media mount point. Go into /etc/fstab and change: #/dev/219042da-6549-4689-b911-bb7445e25b49 /media/Media ext3 defaults,noatime 0 2 to this: /dev/sda6 /media/Media ext3 defaults,noatime 0 2 To get to fstab as root: Press Alt+F2 ( press the Alt anf F2...

Re: Auto Mount Partitions on Boot (also Windows partitions)

I'll admit it's kind of confusing since blkid reports things with ( " ) around things and fstab does not. You've got 3 choices: UUID=219042da-6549-4689-b911-bb7445e25b49 /media/Media ext3 defaults,noatime 0 2 /dev/sda6 /media/Media ext3 defaults,noatime 0 2 LABEL=Media /media/Media ext3 defaults,no...

Re: Auto Mount Partitions on Boot (also Windows partitions)

I dont see what I am doing wrong. I did the terminal command: sudo blkid [sudo] password for xxxxx: /dev/sda1: UUID="d205554f-e78e-4cfd-a532-17de3c820563" TYPE="swap" /dev/sda5: LABEL="Linux" UUID="c0f8cae5-6d35-49af-a71f-227a45be085f" TYPE="ext3" /dev/sda6: LABEL="Media" UUID="219042da-6549-4689-b9...

Re: solidworks?

I worked with solidworks for 2 years. I had the stripped down student edition so it was cheap, you should get the student edition too. Seems like you just enrolled, so you wouldnt need all the features that makes solidworks so expensive. Also, I am sure at your university there are plenty of worksta...
