Moving On

Hi, Well as you can see from my signature I'm moving on. I wish to remain part of this forum, if nothing else, to keep up with the rest of the world. You were here for me when I needed you. It took me awhile to find what I have, searching through different forums. My new system is more specific for ...

Still Here

Hi, all. I just tried the new Ubuntu 9.10 and Kubuntu 9.10, I'm not impressed. The main reason I switched to Linux Mint Gloria is using wireless and the problem is still not fixed from ver. 9.10 in either of the other two. I'm hoping Linux Mint 8 will still have the same Network manager and not chan...

Re: Comment from a one time user.

Thanks, didn't know about that. Thought I'd give you guys a fair shake so I downloaded Linux Mint 7 x64 with gnome and cranked it up. Guess what? Speed is back. Now if I could just get rid of these icons on my desktop, sigh. Oh, I got my wireless up and running, thanks. And I remembered how to get m...

Re: Comment from a one time user.

FWIW I just did that, (Reinstalled Linux Mint) gained a little, lost a little. That's where the crash came in on the first updates via sudo apt-get dist-upgrade which took forever. Sigh, oh well. At least I knew enough to fix it. I don't mind using Mint per se I like to experiment, that's why I was ...

Re: Comment from a one time user.

A Shot in the dark! Sorry, system crashed, broken packages or something, took three reboots to get it fixed. Now running, again. System Setting/Advanced/Hardware shows Hal Power, Network Management backend and Bluetooth Management Backend, no Drivers. inxi -G and inxi -N with or without sudo shows "...

Re: Comment from a one time user.

Hi, thanks for the input. I started with Ubuntu, most people do I guess. Gnome seems crude compared to KDE. XFCE I tried as an alternative when KDE 4.3 came out and crashed so often but I don't care for all the icons on the desktops.

Comment from a one time user. SOLVED!

Hi, I heard about your version through the forum on Kubuntu. Thought I'd give it a shot while waiting for Karmic Koala to make it's debut. I've been using Kubuntu for about a year now. Not too happy the way knetwork-manager has turned out and was looking for something similar even if it is an earlie...
