Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

As for the weirdness, "nothing" is a very unstable state so the the production of "something" out of "nothing" is inevitable therefore it should not be a surprise that we find ourselves in something. you're forgetting that "nothing" remains the same if you add to it or take away from it, so this me...

Hi, the dmesg shows a very long output. What should I looking for?
Something that references the GPS, perhaps. Error messages about devices. Anything that might stick out about unidentified devices.

Re: Worse system performance on Linux than on Windows

For online video neither Firefox nor Chrome/Chromium on Linux support hardware decoding. It's all done in software and is thus battering your CPU... Hmmm... https://i.ibb.co/KsVW8n3/Screenshot-20190318-191917.jpg Use hardware acceleration when available: This allows Firefox to use your computer's g...

Just kinda wondered why certain people choose one over the other.
Some have low-spec machines and choose xfce. Some are completely minimalist and choose xfce. There are probably as many reasons for choosing one desktop environment over another as there are users.

Re: Can you use the same My Passport drive in Linux and Windows?

I have a WD My Passport external HD. I think you're asking the wrong question and running up the drainpipe of unfounded assumptions. The WD Passport works fine in both linux and Windwoes when formatted as NTFS, FAT32, or exFAT. The question is, "why isn't linux seeing the drive?" Plug the drive in,...

I happen to have a 32-bit system, and I usually don't get to excited about having too many bells and whistles, would prefer just basic probably.
Then try xfce. In the end, you have to make the decision yourself anyway.

Both monitors are aligned with their bottom edge, but when I move the mouse between each monitor there is a lip. If my mouse is moving along the bottom on m...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

and how weird is it that we believe the universe was sparked into being by a huge flash of light or bang or explosion. There was no "BANG!" The 'bang' in "Big Bang" was coined as a pejorative. That there was an explosion or a bang is folkscience, old wive's tales, an idea perpetuated by dumbed down...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

Time is part of the fabric of our universe. No. Time is all in your head. :) There is a sound biological reasoning for that statement, and it lives in how we perceive the world in slices, and it is this perception to which we apply the concept of 'time'. In physics, there is absolutely no law that ...

By Preszi I guess you are referring to a presentation program. Am I correct? If so, have you tried opening it with LibreOffice Impress? It is installed by default.

Re: Mint 19.1 doesn't detect GPS

I managed to install most of the hardware, like the touchscreen and the fingerprint reader, but seems there isn't much info online on how the make Linux detect a serial GPS. Any help wil...

More seriously, I am very interested by this software of yours, if it could replace in one package the different backup tools I am using at the moment
I doubt it will ever do that. It's intended only for personal files.
