Re: Importing pictures from digital camera

@bin - thanks for that info. dmesg shows no errors when the cam is attached. This is the same cam that did automount on my last distro. The current setup is working fine except for the double instance, so I'm not inclined to change file managers to get automounting, since it's already happening. @ba...

Re: Importing pictures from digital camera

@asqwerth, does Shotwell have a dedicated Import dialog? That's what gthumb presents. Then when you execute it, the main window opens. It's quite a good setup. I only wish the interface supported xfce theming, and that it had basic editing capabilities. Currently, after I'm done with gthumb I have t...

Importing pictures from digital camera

Hi, I've been trying to simplify the importation of pics from my digital camera. On my previous distro, Thunar opened automatically, but then I'd have to navigate to the correct folder and then cut and paste. On MX-17, the camera was not auto-mounting. Looking to automate this, I found nothing in th...

Re: Future of Wine-staging uncertain

I'm seeing a noticeable difference with Stable 3.0. I'm in a Bible program (theWord), and the fonts are remarkably well aliased - which was always a weakness of Wine. Windows has nothing on these fonts. And the scrollbars are coming through extra-wide, as I have tweaked them to be in my gtk-2 theme....

Re: Future of Wine-staging uncertain

I don't see anything in the Menu, except when I type "wine" it produces the command "run wine". To get my existing wine program to work, I had to change the string 'wine-staging' to 'wine-stable' in its shortcut. Other windows progs that fire through file extension association wo...

Future of Wine-staging uncertain

I was running fine on the Wine-staging that MX Package Installer gave me, but the older version prevented me from reviewing how a program works on it, at WineHQ. So I added the WineHQ repository, uninstalled the existing Wine-staging, and installed the latest one they offered. Lo and behold, it was ...
