I'm just curious, when you open Orage calendar the numbers 35 through 40 show to the left of the calendar.
Anyone know what they are for?

Re: Bryan Lunduke is excited about Purism's Linux cell phone

They are way too expensive for me to hope to get a new one. I do hope they are successful in getting such a revolutionary product launched. So I watch and check on the progress every so often. It sounds like they are making progress and it will be interesting to see what happens once they get the de...

Re: Epson XP_640 scanner does not scan

Well I looked at this Linux Compatibility page and did not see that model listed as compatible: http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html On the other hand there is this page: http://support.epson.net/linux/en/imagescanv3.php?version=1.3.21#debian Did you try using that driver?

Re: Package request Openaudible

I have reached a conclusion that there is something wrong with the file I got.
It does not pass all of the --validate options when I include that in the options when I try to convert it to mp3.
I think I will just buy the written copy of the book and forget about this.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Package request Openaudible

I had no luck installing with the .sh installer.

I am now trying an AAX to MP3 converter but having problems, it doesn't like the filename or the path to the file.
Not sure which.
I have to stop for awhile because I have to get ready to go somewhere.
Back later.

I have a little time now, I am going to experiment and see what I can do. Thanks for your efforts. I appreciate it. I will r...
