Re: How to get started with Geany & Ruby?

Somebody suggested to me that Ruby was a good place to start. I can always pick my brother's brain for Python later, since that's what he deals with for a living. I just want to do this for a bit of simple fun. Nothing too fancy (yet). And Geany keeps showing up as an IDE that can be used for severa...

How to get started with Geany & Ruby?

Hi, all! I'm not exactly a newbie with Linux (having made the right choice 7 years ago), but I've never really had a go at programming anything in all this time. I just recently started tinkering around the beginners' course on Rube in Codecdemy . It vaguely reminds me of some college classes I took...

Good Choice, Cripple73! 8)

I moved away from "M$ Windoze" about 7 years ago.

Haven't even considered Windows since.

Re: Straying icons in the Xfce desktop

Additional bit:

Of course, no sooner had I posted that last message than the straying icons changed up. :roll:

The two of twelve that had been moving about have stayed put.

But a different one has moved a couple of times.

Does anyone know if this is this just a little quirk in Xfce?

Thanks!

Straying icons in the Xfce desktop

Hi! Got a mildly annoying aesthetic issue with the Xfce desktop. I've got several icons on the desktop and like having them arranged in a certain order. Basically the more frequently ones are on the top left, and the least used are on the bottom left. For some reason, though two icons in particular ...

Re: Icon issue with FreeOffice by SoftMaker

Hi hi, leadwtZ: 1) If I download MS files for my classes, it doesn't always work quite right in LibreOffice, but will in FreeOffice. I also like to tinker with different software too. Just because. 2) I haven't figured out how to get all the fonts I like on FreeOffice. Might not be a problem with th...

Re: Icon issue with FreeOffice by SoftMaker

Thanks.

Hadn't tried changing the individual icons like that before.
That's cool.

Nor did I think about contacting Soft Maker about that issue.
That's just way to obvious (or something).

Icon issue with FreeOffice by SoftMaker

Hi! I'm having an bit of an aesthetic issue with the installation of FreeOffice by SoftMaker. When I installed it, the icons for other apps software got replaced by the FreeOffice equivalents. The Gnumeric and LibreOffice files I have show the PlanMaker file icon. Likewise the LibreOffice Writer fil...

Re: Making a shortcut for the keyboard switcher

I should've replied sooner but I've been distracted by going back to classes and all that fun stuff.

I accidentally stumbled on the default hot key combination to change the Cinnamon keyboard switcher. :roll:

It's Shift-Caps Lock.

Thanks for your response too.

[SOLVED] Making a shortcut for the keyboard switcher

Hi! Does anyone know how I can create a keyboard shortcut to cycle through keyboards for the keyboard switcher in Cinnamon? It works well enough with the mouse, but I am in the process of (slowly) making vocabulary flash cards in Mnemosyne, and am having to switch keyboard layouts rather often for t...

Re: Toshiba Satellite A-100 - USB live installer ignored

I was thinking that's probably the case.
I'll keep plugging at it and see if I can get it going somehow.
Thanks for your time, though.

Re: RedNoebook not working now

Run it from a terminal. You will probably get an errormessage. I did that. Got an error message about a missing thing called pyyaml (or some such). so I did this: sudo apt-get install --reinstall python3-yaml And now it mostly works. The Cloud and Tag panels don't display anything now. But at least...

Re: RedNoebook not working now

Maybe it doesn't work because the ppa version you installed isn't for the same ubuntu release your mint is based on? Backwards and forwards compatibility just don't work in Linux so you should install software for your release if you are going to expect it to work. I'd try uninstalling it, getting ...

Re: Toshiba Satellite A-100 - USB live installer ignored

Is the USB bootable? Can you test booting to it on another pc? It didn't occur to me to try booting another computer with that USB stick. I booted another computer just fine. However, I did notice that the other computer's BIOS set up recognized it as a USB HDD. But the Toshiba didn't show that in ...

Re: Toshiba Satellite A-100 - USB live installer ignored

@ Mynaaardt How did you install Peppermint 7.? Also with a USB-stick.? Maybe you need to boot from a Live Linux DVD+R. If no internal DVD-drive, get an external USB DVD-drive/burner. Another lightweight Linux distro that's compatible with very old computers is Linux Lite(= a 900MB ISO file). .........

Toshiba Satellite A-100 - USB live installer ignored

Hi! I wanted to try a live install of Linux Mint 18.2 Xfce on an old warhorse of a laptop. It's a Toshiba Satellite A100. It is old, and a 32 bit machine. But made to last. Living by "waste not want not", I wanted to see how it does running Lubuntu on it. I got to the BIOS to switch the boot order. ...

Re: Mono won't start KeePass from my flash drive

I could be wrong, but I thought you were talking about running KeePass using the (Windows) PortableApps launcher.

If that is the case, then using WINE should be the best solution.

Did you try running it through WINE?
That might work.
