Re: Your computers and Operating systems

... Next I got myself a Macbook Pro. Beautiful machine, so much more refined than a PC in a number of ways. Best trackpad on any machine, period. OSX was nicer than Windows and I loved the taller aspect ratio screen. That was all sweetness and light right up until Snow Leopard went end-of-life. Aft...

Re: VirtualBox auf Linux Mint 18 Mate installieren

Bei OCR brauche ich die Windows Programme, weil die Software für das digitale Archiv durchsuchbare PDFs erstellt und mit dem Scanner zusammenarbeitet, der natürlich nur eine Windows-Version des Programms dabei hatte.

Re: VirtualBox auf Linux Mint 18 Mate installieren

Die Programme wären einige EBV-Programme (mit den kommerziellen Programmen kommen die Linux Programme fürchte ich noch nicht mit bzw. gibt es auf Linux gar keine Alternativen, wie z. B. die NIK tools), dann meine digitale Ablage mitsamt OCR und noch ein paar andere Sachen, für die sich aber evtl. n...

Re: <SOLVED> Firefox 50 highly unstable

In the specific case of Firefox, a crash is the browser window disappearing and being replaced by an error box reading "Firefox has encountered a problem and needs to close". Though if you scroll through my post history, you might come upon the occasion when I somehow managed to get stuck in an inf...

Re: VirtualBox auf Linux Mint 18 Mate installieren

Ooops! Wenn Synaptics scheitert hast Du ein Problem. Hier verweise ich auf die Mint Gurus ...

Re: I am never turning back

Windows 10 has forced me to join the Linux ranks. Really impressed with how everything 'just works'. No hoops to jump thru, not much worry about viruses and especially no spying. ... ....Things running smooth so far and with Libre Office being so awesome, ... Hello Hawkmek!

Hello CraigxXP - from an also novice in the hidden secrets of the command line... :lol:

Always curious what is going on: say something about your device. I for myself am specialized in low end machines - and always impressed what Linux can do there.

Re: <SOLVED> Firefox 50 highly unstable

Sorry - but what is a "crash" ? Blue screen - spinning wheel - the bomb... ...? In Linux I really don't know how a complete failure looks like... Can anyone inform me - screen photo if possible.
