Re: BSDCan 2018: The Tragedy of systemd

This topic has been done to death, and every once in a while someone comes along and tries to reignite the flames. If you don't like systemd, use a different distro. End of story. This is what I love about Linux Mint community and the reason why I don't interact much here anymore. You clearly have ...

Re: Installing KDE Plasma on Mint 19 Tara (Cinnamon)

I have installed Plasma KDE upon a Mint 19 Tara Cinnamon ─ then removed ( most of ) Cinnamon ─ and it is fine after 6 intensive working days, now. I have made a detailed report ─ unhappily in Portuguese ( pt_BR ) ─ but there is a Translator button at the topo of the right column. Sorry, this column...

Re: Adding geo-Google to firefox?

I wondered if there is a Google UK string to change these? browser.search.defaultenginename.US;data:text/plain,browser.search.defaultenginename.US=Google That one there is likely to be the culprit. There used to be an option in FF to set the search string manually but it was removed last year. I su...

Re: KDE Neon on Bionic progresses

While I admit I have not kept up with all the latest alliterative names Canonical has foisted upon their distro, that's not the problem. This is really more the community's problem. I mean, if I can do a Google search for bionic + software and what I get contains not even a whiff of references to U...

Re: Time for a little bit of reading!

Not specifically on this subject, but related in the "extreme planet phenomenon" sense, Jupiter has no clear delineation between gaseous atmosphere and solid surface. In fact, there is enough gravity that there exists metallic hydrogen. That is, a solid metal state of hydrogen. And diamonds the siz...

Anything you write will be forged, misquoted then taken out of context and used in evidence against you.
