Re: What browser does everyone use

I mainly use Firefox, but also use Chrome and SeaMonkey occasionally. In the last month or two I've also started using Links (Stevo's links2 package) and Netsurf to view sites such as the Washington Post which disable reading articles for free when you're not a subscriber. Yes, I hate it when that ...

Re: What browser does everyone use

The latest µBlock Origin provided to me with the autoupdater is version 1.16.4.4. You might try to manually check for updates within Pale Moon extension page about:addons I didn't expect it to update the uBlock version for me. I''m running 1.13.4, the same version I installed yesterday from the ext...

Re: What browser does everyone use

... For Pale Moon extensions look first here: https://addons.palemoon.org/extensions/ . Thanks. i looked through the extensions on that page yesterday, and didn't find what I wanted. For example, I see an extension to update uBlock, but I didn't see uBlock itself. So, I used one of the older versio...

Re: What browser does everyone use

This is a very helpful thread to me, and hopefully it will be to others, too. i recently installed MX 17.1 on a Dell Inspiron 11 with only 2GB of RAM and a slow Celeron N3050 CPU, and have been struggling with resource utilization. Basically, the system would slow to a crawl, and sometimes "freeze" ...

Re: Dell Inspiron 5100 14in. laptop

Yep... using the mixer available under the speaker icon in the panel allows you to set volume to greater than 100%. So, I keep mine at around 135 for much louder sound, using the media players volume sliders to reduce sound to desired levels. As Stevo pointed out, your last insi -F printout shows an...

Re: Dell Inspiron 5100 14in. laptop

I installed MX 17.1 yesterday on a Dell Inspiron 11. It has the same N3050 CPU, and same chipsets for video, audio and more. The only difference in the chipsets when comparing your Dell with my Dell is that your laptop has a different wireless chipset. Of course, the Dell Inspiron 11 has a smaller 1...

Re: Use Different File Systems for / and home

Thanks Adrian. Yea, it was a bit confusing to me, since it appears that each partition should have its own options for things like file system type. Again, OpenSUSE is using a config with a btrfs root partition, and an xfs home partition by default with its installer, and I want to use that same set...

Re: Use Different File Systems for / and home

Thanks Jerry. It's been a while since I've participated here. I've just had too much going on, including my share of health problems, with multiple vertebrae fractures, pelvis fracture and more (keeping me immobile for a while). Loads of Fun! Those are pretty much healed now, and Physical Therapy is...

Re: Use Different File Systems for / and home

Thanks Guys. I'll reinstall that way ("preserve data in home" checked), after making home XFS Of course, I may regret this setup (root as BTRFS, home as XFS). But, OpenSUSE is using that as default with their installer now. Note that I did setup a netbook as btrfs only some time back (with the same ...
