They work well with some problems with the standard video player, but without problems with VLC. see: ...

I learn by helping others, so it's all good. :D Yes, you have the right spot for the edit, but we need to change the command a little bit, as the interpreter is too basic to handle it properly. I'll also include a short timer, j...

Re: xsession-errors grows fast repeating same line

It seems the CPU Temperature Indicator Applet is to blame. it shows in a 2 sec interval the cpu temp and after shutting down a couple Applets it stopped growing. A restart without this Applet confirms that. Is there a way to use the Applet without that error or do I need to shop for another one? Sad...

Re: no speaker sound but when headphones are plugged in

OK switching works on the fly.
only little bug is, when in headphone mode sound is mono out of all 4 speakers
