    I'm a heavy user of Xubuntu, but I'm sorry, for the average user, OS X is far superior over any Linux Distro.


    I mean for us folks that like getting into the meat of Operating Systems, any...

    I haven't been around in a long time (too many other projects).

    I'm not sure how to answer the folks that are having problems after a re-boot or problems with dropped wireless connections.

    Re: Have anyone here tried CNR for all?

    Well... since I've never actually used CNR, I can only guess.

    In Synaptic, it still takes a lot of clicks to add software... have to add repositories, have to click mark and apply a few times as...
  4. Re: How to: Xubuntu - Thunar Native Windows Network Browsing

    Looks sort of like what happened to me when I tried installing it on my second Edgy Machine.

    Try sudo ls -l

    It's like the directory gets locked up by root somehow.

    Then you need to unload...

    I voted other, because to me it's a combination of some things on the poll... not just one.

  9. Re: How to: Xubuntu - Thunar Native Windows Network Browsing

    Hmm... since I haven't run into this... the only thing I can say is, yes, possibly it's something quirky with Ubuntu running the XFCE desktop instead of using pure Xubuntu. Miguellint reinstalled...
  10. Poll: Re: Poll: Gnome vs KDE

    Huh?
    What do you mean by options?

    If you are talking desktop look and feel, you can do just about anything in XFCE that Gnome and KDE offer. ( Especially with GTK 2 themes http://xfce-look.org/ )...

  12. Re: How to: Xubuntu - Thunar Native Windows Network Browsing

    Sounds like either your sudo is messed up, or fusesmb is "locking" the changing of the directoy or something.

    Since Thunar doesn't have native network Browsing, here is a good way to accomplish it:

    I use Xine-ui as well.

    Anyway... it doesn't really matter what player you use.... none of them will work on a commercial dvd without libdvdcss2.

    First... I don't hate either KDE or GNOME. (I know I said that "I dispise the bloat that they have become"... but that doesn't mean I dispise the environments, themselves. You have to understand...
  17. Poll: Re: Poll: Gnome vs KDE

    You are right about that.

    Yes, as far as the desktop utilizing system resources, goes.

    There's also another 'type' (if you will) bloat... "distro bloat".

  22. Poll: Re: Poll: Gnome vs KDE

    XFCE

    or ICEWM (If you don't mind a lot of set up to get it as functional as the others)

    I have come to dispise the bloat that has come to pass in GNOME, KDE, and, of course, MS OSes.
