Your Princeton LCD "out of range" situation would likely be cured with the same procedure that drum has followed here, except you'll add " 1600x1200_60 " to the Modes line in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. I think what drum here did was boot with his CRT attached, to edit xorg.conf (perhaps in TTY mo...

For me, newly installed software often appears in a menu only after I log out and back in. Then I go looking for where it was placed in the menus.

Since I've already blown away the Windows partition, how do I resize it so Gnome can take advantage off all my drive space? It's better to let Linux take advantage of having multiple partitions. Moving your /home directory onto its own partition is a good thing to do, especially if you might upgrad...

I have 1.0-9755 installed for my GeForce FX5200 AGP8X 128MB card. In nvidia-settings , under "Save to X Configuration File", there's a "Show Preview" button. That preview shows the text of what gets written out as the new xorg.conf file. It's definitely not an updated copy of my existing xorg.conf f...

I applied that tweak to Firefox in GNOME Bianca and KDE PCLinuxOS. The result in both is a file chooser with fewer features than what there is now. The current file chooser has a sidebar with folder bookmarks, plus a cookie-crumb mode of following the file path. You lose those features when you appl...

I believe that your assessment is a valid alternative to my pattern behavior, and I'd trust Bianca to do no harm in such an approach. Go for it**. (Though do lay full blame on Clem for any subsequent tragedy.) ;-) **Note that your suggested way would leave hda1 in a "faulty" (one unbootable conditio...

Greetings, richard. The Envy script can sometimes be problematic. It works for many, but didn't for me. Have a look-see at one way to manually install the nVidia drivers, posted [HERE] .

I checked Firefox File Open in KDE Bianca and in PCLinuxOS (KDE), and the file chooser is virtually identical to the one in GNOME. Konqueror's built-in file chooser can preview an image when you click the file name, so it's a little behind Firefox++Firefly (which only needs a mouse hover). Perhaps y...

Bianca Desktop time remains constant and accurate local time (12h) regardless of BIOS time.

looking to stop the xserver to install the 9755 nvidia driver.
First, close all of your open applications.

Next, go into TTY mode by pressing CTRL-ALT-F1.

Now your KDE stop command (sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop) will work as expected.

Enjoy.

I've been using a HDD that has Windows (hda1), swap (hda2), and two ext3 partitions (hda3 and hda4). GNOME Bianca has remained on hda4 while I've (re)installed numerous distros on hda3. Each new install modified the GRUB boot manager for the change on hda3, while leaving Windows and Bianca intact as...

To be fair, this isn't a GNOME fault. It's an application/utility program(mer) oversight. The Firefly extension shows a thumbnail preview when the mouse is hovered over an image file name. That seems like an improvement over the generic file chooser. But, I don't upload images to e-mail or eBay, so ...

The Dolphin file manager features a thumbnail previews mode. And it has a dual-panel option.

It's intended for KDE, but I've been using it under GNOME without problems.

You have to do sudo /usr/bin/nvidia-settings to change Don't do that!! I just took a close look at what the nvidia-settings program actually does.
