Re: JAVA on Isadora

I don't recall Windows ever suggesting a path or a command! Bad command or file name. I dont know what to do when i get that, but i know it carries as much information as when my girlfriend says: If you dont know why i am upset with you, i am not going to tell you. So that analogy being made, i fee...

Re: WinE vs VirtualBox

Just my personal opinion, but what you are planning to do is ill-advised. You do realize that UFDs are far slower than HDDs? Yes, however its does not take that long. What i do is use the MultiBoot software from PendriveLinux.com to make my pendrive bootable, change a few codes to modify it for Lin...

Re: WinE vs VirtualBox

Been reading a few forums and seems line wine causes a lot of problems if used without caution... http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=72598 Actually, Wine uses less resources than Virtualbox, since Wine is really nothing more than a slim collection of Windows API's, without any drivers or softw...

Re: WinE vs VirtualBox

Task manager in Linux? A graphical version? Depends on what desktop environment you have...if you're using the main version of Mint (i.e. with Gnome installed), either type in "gnome-system-monitor" in a terminal or search for System Monitor in mintMenu.

Re: WinE vs VirtualBox

Learn how to use the Gimp. It's good enough as a Photoshop replacement. That shouldn't be much trouble. I dont know Photoshop that well either. Used to know CS2 a bit better, but its totally different in CS4. Guess i'll have to take Gimp as CS ultimate :) Learning (the) Linux (way) is really not th...

Other one is a Asus T500 wireless modem's software (which ONLY runs in VirtualBox's Windows since it requires hardware drivers installed in windows itself). For these few programs, i do not want the cl...

Re: Howto: USB-friendly Linux Mint hybrid ISO

For those who are using windows, you can "write/burn" the linux mint (and a lot more) iso to your pendrive by using the following tool, provided by PendriveLinux: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/ I used it when installing Linux Mint 8 to my laptop. This is much fas...
