Re: Ubuntu pre-installed, warranty, make tripple boot?

Hi, Generally if you mess with your system yourself or through 3rd party, other than authorized service center, warranty gets void. Hope others give you a proper opinion. Best would be to install win 7 first. Win bootloader will over-write GRUB (linux bootloader). Grub will recognize windows 7. Even...

Not a problem with the burner for I can read and access the files from the CD/DVD from every other machine in the house, just not th...

Re: Linux Mint 9 xfce problem reading é

I have a strange problem, my distro can't seem to read any files on my winxp pc containing an é in the name.... Other special letters it just changes to the plain letter (also not what it is supposed to do, but at least i can copy those). ë should remain ë, not make it into e. ö must remain ö, not ...

Re: need a good search tool

Catfish has just been updated. Not available in repositories yet, but you can download and install easily on Linux Mint 13. It uses locate for finding files on disk fast, and zeitgeist for including recently used documents. See here: http://www.ubuntuvibes.com/2012/08/catfish-search-tool-updated-wi...

Hi, I recently downloaded ' Search Everything ' - a small tool for windows which indexes files names, but not the contents of file. So it's very fast. List of files is already loaded when you open this app. As you type, file names are filtered dynamically like synapse / gnome-do. You can also open m...

Re: Linux Beginners Search Engine

Re: Why did they choose MDM?

If I just type the user name and password and not use the mouse, no problem. Both mouse and keyboard are Logitech wireless. Easy enoug...

Most popular browsers have Do Not Track Option.

Re: The Truth about Malware and Linux - Kaspersky

This is not in control of Gnu / Linux and so Linux cannot be blamed for this. Of course it is. There are binary parts in the kernel itself , so who, if not "Linux", can be blamed? ("GNU/Linux" usually covers only the blob-free parts, according to RMS himself.) Then I will have t...
