Re: What other distros have you played with recently?

My partitions: 30 GB Arch (the boot is here) 30 GB Debian 30 GB Manjaro 400 GB data 10 GB swap. I guess a backup OS will never hurt anyone. :) Note: during Manjaro install, I chose manual partitioning as always. True, but on the other hand I have a full backup of my Manjaro setup and place it back ...

Re: This looks legit

The link wants me to sign in with Google. Privacy much? I read here on this forum several messages from people who believe only Google is the spy who wants your data. Well let me tell you, the alternatives people here write about are just as bad, even worse, because they don't tell you they do it. ...

Re: What other distros have you played with recently?

I hit a problem installing multi-boot of Manjaro 17.0 Xfce along side Linux Mint Mate 18.1 - a Grub incompatibility problem between Mint and Manjaro that I think is fairly well known now on the Manjaro forum... https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=228974&start=40#p1289548 True.

Re: Weird "jello" effect when scrolling web pages, LM + Mate

OK, sure, but now scrolling is even worse. Not smooth at all (duh...). ... and I think some remnants of that effect are still there. Of course it is hard to tell since scrolling now looks bad anyway. Any idea why Ubuntu/Unity works flawlessly on the same setup? Something vastly improved in Unity as...

Re: LM 18.1 network path problems?

Is it so important to have the scanned documents in a particular folder? Does the machine scan at all? For me that would be more important. You can't find a scanner setting somewhere which says documents are placed here or there? I don't have an HP but use an Epson printer/scanner and my docs are pl...

Re: Weird "jello" effect when scrolling web pages, LM + Mate

Open Chrome (or Firefox) settings and switch off smooth scrolling. In Chrome you type: about:flags in the addressbar. When the page has loaded scroll down a bit till you see the item smooth scrolling. Here it is item 22 in the long list. I expect Firefox to have something similar but I don't use tha...

Re: What other distros have you played with recently?

Yep, Manjaro is a super-nice distro. :) Hello Fred, I am using Manjaro for about 6 months now and I never had the impression it has more vulnerabilities than other distro's. You could be right, though, the idea behind Manjaro, and certainly Arch, is a rolling distro with regular updates. It's not t...

Re: wifi detectie

Okay, what you would do then is this: right-click in Mint on the network-icon in your status bar (bottom-right of your screen probably) A pop-up will appear with text something like this: Configure network connection Click on that A Window opens and in the right half of it you see a line saying: Res...

Re: What network protocol to use for NAS?

I don't know about your NAS but I have used NFS for a while and I always had the impression it was faster than SMB. Not much, but just enough to notice it. Would probably be the same with a NAS. Try it out and see for yourself.

Re: KDE and Dolphin no good?

No idea where you get that statement from but KDE is simply the best. In fact, KDE is the only DE worth while to use. It looks amazing, it is completely configurable the way you want it and it works great. Yes, It had a rough start, I assume we are talking about Plasma 5 now, but using 5.9.3 is a de...

Do you know what is vim? It is a text editor, like Windows' Notepad, although with a much more complicated interface.
