Re: The end of spinning rust...

Until you have experienced Linux on a reasonably modern machine, with an SSD boot drive, you wouldn't understand why they are the best modification you can make! Chris Absolutely correct. And bigger is better depending on how much data you need to store. Do you want 16 4 GB flash drives or one 64 G...

Re: Logitech MX Ergo wireless trackball mouse (yes, MX is the real name ;) )

It really depends where you want your ball to be :) That and I am a rather brand-stuck kind of gal. Just to note.. been driving the same brand car since childhood ;) I hear you.

Re: MX-17: Proposal: Change Conky's time representation to "24 hours"

Very odd. All works here with different icon sets. Have you tried purging and reinstalling? Just be careful if you purge other packages are not taken out as well.

Re: Small Whisker menu change

the manual used to be called "Help". No one found it there either. Note the manual is in the default Favorites Menu. Not sure where the statistics are supporting that.

Re: mx-17 freezing

Hitting the power button is not a good, but I guess you didn't know there are alternatives. I suggest you install and configure xkill and use it to unfreeze your computer. that's a good idea. xkill is pre-installed. just hit ctrl+alt+esc, the cursor should change to an X and you can kill a window. ...

Re: Gnome keyring bother and managing Services

Most have regular jobs and are not always logged in to the forum. Give it some time and others will chime in perhaps including the primary developers...
