Re: what is best os version & kernel to use with Dell D830 laptop

Install s-tui, then run it from the terminal. Click on the 'Stress" checkbox instead of Monitor to load up your machine and see what its top speed is. This will show if it's stuck at 800 MHz or can hit 2.6 GHz.

Re: Firefox - No video with supported format and MIME type found

We'd have to have the problem links in order to troubleshoot them. Of course, if they are pirated movie sites....well, those sometimes don't work in Linux.

Re: Pulsecaster: Simple PulseAudio-based tool for making podcast interviews

Well, I packaged it yesterday, but the menu entry and running "pulsecaster" in the terminal both do exactly nothing--just jumps to the next line and sits there. Running pulsecaster manually from the source also does nothing. I also used alien to convert the Fedora rpm to a deb package, but it throws...

Re: [Solved] Impossible to use Nvidia drivers

Cool! So "optirun glxspheres64" works and runs a lot faster than just "glxspheres64" now? You should also be able to use va-api hardware decoding in VLC to watch even 4K videos with little extra CPU use--at least I have it working with my i7-8750H and also an i5-6200u. So far, with VLC, QMPlay2, Kod...

Re: [RESOLVED] XFCE Menu Frustrations

I use gnome-color-chooser to tweak colors and other elements of themes in XFCE. It should also work in Mate. gnome-color-chooser modifies gtk2 themes so it might work in Xfce 4.12, but it won't work in MATE which is fully gtk3. I assumed that since if it works with GTK 3 GNOME 3, it would work with...

MX mentioned on Linux Unplugged podcast

https://linuxunplugged.com/289

starting about 4:45 and ending around 15:20 with a digression about KDE Neon breaking in the middle.

I had to wince when they said it was a combination of "MEPS Linux" and a mispronounced antiX. I also haven't found out if they ever used MX after testing it.
