I got a good chuckle about someone literally installing a real live nautilus on their Linux Mint computer. To be honest that would make a good art challenge. Hmmm... I wonder if posting challenges would be appropriate for the art section of the forums. I might go over and take a peek. :mrgreen:
Have you tried turning it off and on again, then hitting it repeatedly? :/

"After having dug to a depth of 10 meters last year, Scottish scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago. Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, English scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in the English newspapers read: "English archaeologists have found traces of 200-year-old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the Scots." One week later, "The Kerrymen," a southwest Irish newsletter, reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 meters in peat bog near Tralee, Paddy O'Droll, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Paddy has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Ireland had already gone wireless."

WIRELESS BLUES

Postby npap » Sun Jan 15, 2012 9:20 am

Ha,Ha, Ha !....... :lol:
Very funny Richy.
And I've been trying to go wireless on this ancient laptop that I'm trying to revive! :( No luck with Wicd.
It won't work with the Debian based Xfce4 desktop though it's OK with Ubuntu based distributions.

What frustration! :x

Cheers, old boy!

Did you get your wireless working?

If not you might give Wary Puppy 5.2.2 a try. It's designed to run on older computers. My son got it to run on an old Compac Presario with a pcmcia wireless card. I'm running Racy Puppy on a stick on my netbook (Wary with an updated kernel, etc., for newer computers) and it flies!

Hello Ken,
It's nice to hear from you again. :)
I finally got this old Gateway laptop to work right.
Mepis AntiX base is really lean and versatile enough for any old PC. With it you can install Xfce or Lmde or any other Debian based OS. And the installation is very fast with the Mepis installer. Installed Synaptic too. Also switched to the Iceweasel browser which is actually a Debian version of Firefox.
I have a wireless stick working, which is detected by Ceni , a command-line network manager.
No other net manager works, Wicd is useless for some reason or other for older PCs.

Cheers,
npap live :lol:

Hi npap, glad to hear you got it working. Antix is a fine distribution.

I put a variation of Puppy on my netbook's SSD called Racy NOP, which has an Xfce DE. It's not for older computers (uses kernel 3.0.7), but runs very well on my Eee Pc 900.

Cheers, Ken

One of the most memorable comments about software, ever said, is whether this or that piece of Code can make coffee.

Coffee is a world commodity that is second only to oil.

Linux DOES make coffee; and it tastes good as well!
