Re: How to install Gimp 2.8 for the not so experienced

Hi Some weeks ago, I struggled to compile Gimp 2.8 and finally succeeded thanks to expert help. It was to get a huge thing (over 600 megs), tons of libraries. A dreadful but enlightening experience. :D The files had landed in my /home (my mistake) and I wanted to have a cleaner copy. To make a long...

Re: Had to do it - Mint 13 XFCE

Yeah, a lot of my installs are more "Mint-inspired" than being actual Mint copies. I purposely tried to make this one as Minty as I could to get an idea what the Xfce spin might look like. :D If your machine is running nicely and you like what you've got, then you did it right! Seems like LM 12 KDE...

Re: Had to do it - Mint 13 XFCE

I tried doing this with KDE instead but not sure if I did it right. I grabbed the mini.iso, swapped sources, preferences, and apt-get update. Then, I installed the keyrings and install kde-full, kubuntu-desktop along with the few mint meta packages I did come across. The system is very snappy but no...

Re: cant download

did you download the Ubuntu installer? for me I just double clicked the installer and it ran the install. Even created a desktop icon so not sure why it's not working unless the files in a different location then where they should be.

Re: Altered command to run Spotify Linux Preview

Well you could add this to a blank text file

Code: Select all

rm -r ~/.cache/spotify
rm -r ~/.config/spotify
exec /usr/bin/spotify %U
Right click on the file and you should see permissions and make it executable. Try running it now as it looks like my first command didn't work correctly.
