Re: Libre office on 17.3 64

I recently upgraded to 64 bit Cinnamon 17.3. The office app is really bad or I have the wrong program installed somehow. Some of the problems include: all saved documents have the 'blink' activated in the character format and it cannot be turned off; the save as option brings up a menu that is very...

Re: A good, honest alternative to HP's disgusting approach

Greetings! Simply install the "xscreensaver" package, than in thunar (or any other suitable method, e.g. gedit/mousepad) either create a new (or edit an existing)file in your home directory named ".xscreensaver" (without the quotes) using the above script/settings.

Re: Curroption of NTFS file system on SSD

Hello, I'm having an issue with an NTFS file system on an ADATA SSD. The mount will hang after very little activity, refuse to umount and it will hang shutdown. A hard reboot then corrupts the file system. Windows then won't boot after without a chkdsk and often a bootrec and/or bcdboot. The last t...

Bleachbit again?! :lol: I thought we already covered that. In detail. Maybe, just maybe, a hint of pot-stirring, there? There are many programs I'm not too fond of in the Software Manager, but they are there because some people really do use and sometimes love them. So I want them to be there so tha...

Thanks for the answers and suggestions. Decades ago? Seriously? My wife received her last employer (HP) provided 28" "standard" monitor back in 2004. I wouldn't exactly call that decades ago. And no burn-in on the screen for LCD screens? Sorry, maybe not on LED backlit screens, but LCD screens can ...

Re: Screensaver - Excessive Power issue with 17 Rosa?

This is obviously not a good thing since it's bad for the processor while using substantially more energy than not using a screensaver at all. Screensavers were designed in the days when display devices consisted of cathode-ray tubes that could suffer from phosphor 'burn-in'. For the past couple of...
