Re: HardInfo 0.5.1 Devices->Storage Shows Nothing

All the hardware info etc is easily accessed in Linux, and all/most of the tools are pre-installed (lsusb, lshw, lspci, lscpu, blkid, etc) - inxi provides the easiest way for a user to view this information. So I'm not sure what else people need. Here's a list of options for inxi. OK, you could easi...

Re: Application Base Firewall - Repo Required

There aren't any for Linux, they are either no longer developed, buggy, or both... including the ones you've listed.

Re: MX-16.1: Great application for easy photo enhancement - forgot name of application

You are describing "Variations" that's available from the Image menu in Photoshop... but of course you can't be. Or you could also be describing Filter Pack in GIMP, but you said it's not GIMP.

Maybe search for "Photoshop Variations alternative" or similar will help

Assuming my last post on nmcli wasn't useful - there's perhaps another alternative worth investigating that sorts wifi connections by signal strength or by using user-defined profiles:

It's in the repos too.

Was funny but scary back in the days of Windows

There used to be a lot of these, most popped-up from small scripts/programs. I still remember the first time my son saw one... "DAAAADD!!!" ;)
