Re: Frustrations with home network

As mentioned before Samba should be all you need to achieve the home network and file sharing. If you do not have a dedicated machine to act as a server I would use the one with the best network connection (preferable hard wired and not wifi) to store the data (files) and add the shares. If you do h...

Re: Mint 13 KDE (KDE sterilised)

I agree claudecat and I am not recommending that the whole suite is included. I need to do some more digging but I think this (again referring to KIPI) was included in the standard package set from about KDE4.6. As I said it is a key piece of software that adds some great functionality to a number o...

Re: Mint 13 KDE (KDE sterilised)

I am a new user, and I am curious... besides uploading pictures to online services (which does not interest me), what other features of KDE are not included in Mint 13 KDE by default? And how would I add them? Thanks in advance. --Jim Hi Jim, I've not done an exhaustive check but there were a coupl...

Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

Thanks for all of your great work Schoelje. This implemenatation of LMDE KDE looks great. I did download the original .iso but have since done a major upgrade on my PC and ditched any large files. I'm now downloading again and will seed this for you. On the artwork side there are a couple of prolifi...

Mint 13 KDE (KDE sterilised)

After toying with a number of other KDE Distros (Chakra and Sabayon9, which are both aawesome by the way) I've finally installed Mint 13 KDE on my main home machine. Whilst I am very pleased with it a few key KDE parts are missing. One such thing is the KIPI plugins for Gwenview etc, being able to u...

If you boot using your Mint DVD you can use your partition manager to resize the partition.

Very impressed with KDE 4.8.4 (coming from 4.4ish it is a huge improvement).

I tried it as a newb and needless to say failed miserably! Went running off to Kubuntu and got the KDE bug then and there :)

Re: Thinking About Fedora 17 KDE

it's all Linux. That's something that has occurred to me after trying Chakra and Sabayon9. For me it is the DE that is more important than the base. Admittedly I have fairly basic computing needs but the user interface is of most importance. I've tried Unity (still have it installed on a PC in my b...

Re: Why do Windows users get such a bad rap?

I'll reassert my comment whilst you make baseless arguments.

"Take, for instance, Mark Russinovich, Mark Thurrott, etc..., those guys are deep and technical and they could probably outsmart any equivalent that Linux has to offer and there are lots of them like that in Windows."
