Re: Package manager suggestion

The package manager is excellent, but it strikes me that a useful feature is non-obvious and could maybe be improved. The piece I'm talking about is the info column. When I look at its light bulb icon it has no meaning to me, and I feel it could be easily overlooked by a newbie ..... I get what you...

Re: Stevo's MX16-KDE: strange issue with root password

what happens if you type "x-terminal-emulator" in console? I also wonder if the quoting is a bit screwed up, a bit too many single quotes... Sorry, was watching football. This is what happened: 1. a separate xfce terminal opened (the command was run in the KDE Konsole) 2. the following message show...

Re: Texstar

I'm still running PCLinuxOS MATE on one of my partitions.

After Mepis 6.5, PCLOS KDE4 was the second distro to "just work" on my Pentium 4 Dell machine with 1 GB RAM, including desktop effects (although I did have to copy over Mepis' xorg.conf file to get the effects to work).

What sad news.
