Re: Mint on 4k usage

I was actually thinking maybe running bash in windows at some point You are going to need a live Mint USB drive or DVD for installation. That would give you the bash command capabilities, as well. Yes. But I don't know when I'll boot one the next time with that machine - might be a while as it's ru...

Re: Mint on 4k usage

At the moment Windows is using about half of the drive, so even more shouldn't be a problem. I usually like to install linux distros as a "one slot has all" and then just manually move or download anything special to elsewhere. My main Mint on a different machine at the moment is on a 60G slot, and ...

Mint on 4k usage

Had a hard time figuring which would be the ideal subforum for this question(s), so here we go: I recently got some new hardware* and probably sooner or later I'm going to enhance it with linux one way or another. :wink: Not really sure how though.. Should I cram Mint onto the rest of the ssd or jus...

Re: Installationsproblem: ALFA 802.11

With linux you shouldn't have to install any drivers manually, the drivers are there already. Is https://www.alfa.com.tw/products_show.php?pc=67&ps=241 the device you're talking about? It says it's linux compatible, so I guess it should just work. What exactly is the problem? If you're new to linux,...

Re: äänet katoaa jos hdmi-kaapeli kytketty

No nyt on selvää, mitä tarkoitat. Valitettavasti myös voin vastata omalta osaltani aika tyhjentävästi: en tiedä mikä avuksi. :|

Jos englanti sujuu, niin kannattaa yleiselle puolelle laittaa kysymystä.

Re: äänet katoaa jos hdmi-kaapeli kytketty

Luulisi, että ääniasetuksista voit valita ulostuloksi mitkä hyvänsä saatavilla olevat kaiuttimet. Itselläni näyttää molettamat, hdmi ja sisäinen (läppärin) äänentoisto. Voi olla että sen joutuu manuaalisesti vaihtamaan, vaikka ei olisikaan töllö päällä. Niin, pian on vain helpompi vetää se hdmi joh...

Re: Every time I see a misspelling...

My mind just takes off into a tangent, making fun of the way the misspelling was used. In this case, the word is 'duel' used instead of 'dual' which was intended. So in my deluded mind, I'm thinking of two operating systems installed on a flatland type world, constantly waging battle with each othe...

Re: publishers may now charge users

Hulu has been doing this. By paying 50% more you can watch without commercials, and even then some shows are exempted. Dont hold your breath. Cable television started out ad free because the customer was paying for ad free. And look what it has become. Yes, things surely change. I remember when Goo...

All the new OSs have great attributes. The OSs's users are happy as a clam. But one OS in particular has gotten great praise. That OS's desktop is just so great. :lol:

Re: Plants

I'm definitely jealous for everybody who live in a place where you can grow stuff like Bananas outdoors. While my Dwarfs (Cavendish noids) grow great during summertime I doubt I'll ever get to see them make fruit. Maybe I'll at least get to harvest my Coffee someday. For edibles, I simply don't have...

How great are plants, am I right? I'm just so giddy that the summer is here and everything is growing like bananas. Especially the Bananas! :lol: I'm definitely one of the plant enthusiasts and don't have the exact count at all times if I don't go around and count my plants. Just thought it would be...
