Re: cant use sudo add-apt-repoository

@rickc, I've just had a look into the deb file. The reason why you need to install some extra libs, is simply that deb file is written purely.

That's an Ubuntu command not a Debian one. Check the Users Manual Section 5 on how it is done in Debian and here.

Re: How can make a game run in full screen?

F11 didn't do anything

The terminal idea just started the game - but thanks for the tip as may help with other apps

Cheers

How can make a game run in full screen? SOLVED

Any ideas? Cheers

I'm unclear how to start the installer once the live environment has started.

I remember somebody else posting this question months ago, and I've just lost an hour of my life trying to find it. Apologies for asking a question that's been asked before.

Snapshot - an amazingly clever thing!

Thanks
