Re: Firefox 13 Default Start Page

...and Firefox 50 by Christmas... I love a funny smart-aleck :lol: Thank you. My years have made me cynical, but I like to keep people laughing if I can. What Firefox is doing may not seem good, but it is mathematically predictable: The amount of bloat, memory consumption, and "breakages"...

Re: Firefox 13 Default Start Page

Hello. I'm sorry that your question is difficult to answer. But with all the excitement over Firefox 14 being released in two weeks , and Firefox 50 by Christmas, Firefox 13 appears to be just another moot release among a profusely bleeding stream of moot releases. It's hard for me to take Firefox r...

Re: Linux Mint 13 Xfce RC released!

# AlbertP That looks handy. Thank you. It looks like the same place I got data about switching to unstable / experimental. I'll have to have a deeper look at "http://community.linuxmint.com" It would seem to be a completely different entity than the forum or the main web site, and it seems...

Re: Update pack 4, should I do it?

If I installed LMDE last week, do I already have Update Pack 4? I visited the mirrors listed on the other thread: there's a directory for indices, docs, etc. I wouldn't know what to download from there. How could I? Is there a thread that explains what we should download from there? E.g. "When ...

there's only one way to know :) Oh, yes! I love this... Should we be "reporting" our findings? mame 0.146 unstable -> working well, so far. I was presented with an option to replace my mame.ini file with the developer's new mame.ini , which I did. /etc/mame/mame.ini was replaced and renam...

Re: POLL: Are you tracking new Mint Repo or "Debian Testing"

I sincerely hope that I am doing this correctly, but I followed the instructions on this link: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/250 Therefore, I assume that I am tracking Debian unstable. I upgraded OpenArena to 0.8.8-5/Debian and it works fine. I'll try a couple of more packages, but I'...

I thought it was simple (I had to post using the "quote" function because the "code" function produces illegible text. I never cared for CSS styles.) # mount the dvd udisks --mount /dev/sr1 #1 cd /media #2 ls #3 The script will successfully mount the dvd. ( #1 ) The script will n...

Hello from nowhere California

Hello. I just installed LMDE XFCE Version yesterday, and I am very pleased. I just changed over from Lubuntu. Boot time is a tad slower, but it could be because of the grub menu. I find that Linux is easy to learn, but that the nuances of each distro is what must be overcome. I tried a live version ...
