Re: Custom Thunar action to open DVD video folder with SMPlayer?

Thanks, Fehlix. I'll definitely hold onto that for possible future use. The problem here is that VLC has major stutter when in full-screen mode. It's possibly due to the nVidia driver, or C2D processor, I'm not sure, but I've tried everything to eliminate it, to no effect. SMPlayer works far better,...

Re: Custom Thunar action to open DVD video folder with SMPlayer?

lol - It will take a miracle more than luck for me to figure that out, but thanks for the man page. Maybe I can work something from it. I suppose the thing to do is work from the command line, and then try to transfer it to Thunar.

If they ever get around to making a Linux version of eSword that would be an idea.
I'm not sure what a Bible memorization program is. But if you're looking for a full-featured Bible program, theWord runs very well on WINE.

Custom Thunar action to open DVD video folder with SMPlayer?

Hi, I'm looking for a way to open the "VIDEO_TS" folder from a ripped DVD. in SMPlayer. It can be done internally in SMPlayer via the "DVD from folder" command, but it's much easier to navigate in Thunar. I came across this page , which gives this command for MPlayer, The MPlayer command to play a D...

Re: Best Distro for an Old Laptop

MX, being light-mid weight, would be an excellent choice. How to do it? Reinstall Windows first, because the latter Linux install will respect Windows, but the opposite is not true. From Windows it should be easy to upgrade the BIOS. For me 3GB is the threshold for a 64bit OS, otherwise I stick to 3...

Re: Occasionally lose video, keyboard, mouse

I'm going to mark this issue solved. I switched to the 4.9 anti-x kernel, with the two security patches, and in almost two weeks now there's been no replay of the freezing problem. I do get a weird fleeting video initialization screen with various colored rectangles on boot up and down, I sill get v...

Re: Occasionally lose video, keyboard, mouse

Ok, after doing the rebuild and the .conf re-creation, I was able to successfully boot to 4.9... There was a flash of a weird test pattern sort of output, but it was fleeting, and then I was up and running. No problems thus far on 4.9 Debian, and the boot times to CPU settle-down are very good, much...

Re: Occasionally lose video, keyboard, mouse

I did the rebuild and also deleted the .conf file. Booted to the 19.0.5 kernel again, and this time it only stayed up 3 hours. This is looking to me to be a degenerating hardware condition. Probably time to go motherboard shopping.

Re: Occasionally lose video, keyboard, mouse

A ha. Nice tools. Makes it easy. However, 4.9 boots only to a blinking cursor. I believe its install did not go properly, despite it saying it did. I'm back on 19.5 for now; will look at it again tomorrow and maybe try the Anti-X 9.5, which has the advantage of having both security patches.
