Re: Do you run Linux as your sole operating system?

I run only Linux Mint 9. Windows 7 is way too expensive here (62 minimum hourly wages in Poland in comparison to 17 minimum hourly wages in USA) and generally, I don't like how Microsoft got much less user friendly after Windows 98 with all these "system restore disks", activations, and started to u...

Re: I can't access my HDD without root privilages

I'm not sure what this means: I have installed LXDE on Linux Mint 9 I installed the LXDE metapackage and then choose LXDE in the login menu. It worked normally. The problem started when I have booted the computer today and logged in with LXDE. /dev/loop0: LABEL="My Disc" TYPE="iso9660" /dev/sda1: L...

I can't access my HDD without root privilages [SOLVED]

Hello, I have installed LXDE on Linux Mint 9 and I can't access one of my HDDs without root privileges. In Gnome it would normally mount and I would have access to all files on it without root privileges but in LXDE I needed to mount with password and then I get a "permission denied" error. When I c...

Disabling font anti-aliasing by editing config file? (LXDE)

I have installed LXDE on my Linux Mint Isadora. It works much faster than GNOME but I have one problem. It anti-aliases all fonts which makes my eyes hurt and makes me sick. It seems that the version that I have installed doesn't have a font anti-aliasing setting. Which file should I edit to disable...

Re: Massive performance drop after upgrade from Mint 7 to 9

It appears that it has stopped happening, probably after the last update I downloaded. Thanks for the replies.

Re: If you think Linux is tough to install

I switched to Linux when my Win98 refused to work with my new computer's network card. I decided to not buy WindowsXP mainly because their new policies aren't user friendly. When I got Win98 OEM I could install and use it without any trouble after just entering a CD-key. I used it on three computer ...

Massive performance drop after upgrade from Mint 7 to 9

Hello, I'm new here. I was using Linux Mint 7 for past year and it was performing acceptably, though slower than Win98. When I have upgraded to Isadora, suddenly most of basic stuff started working slower - even all menus, Nautilus and Firefox. Usually, it's impossible to even use a VICE C64 emulato...
