  1. Re: Mac-style Menu Bar for GTK and Java/Swing applications!

    Personally I'd like to see Gnome fully integrated with the GnuStep framework, but for that, a solution for the menu like this is needed. I think the Etoile project is working on something similar. It...

    Re: ms office 2007 vs openoffice 2.2

    It is. Microsoft was a member of OASIS during ODF's development, but chose not to participate to make sure it met their needs, and instead chose to make a proprietary and patented XML format. The...

    Re: ms office 2007 vs openoffice 2.2

    @Macintosh sauce:
    Here's hoping OOo will soon prroduce a native Cocoa version. I'm almost certain Apple has had one in the wings for some time as an insurance policy for whenever MS has threatened...

    Re: ms office 2007 vs openoffice 2.2

    I switched to OpenOffice on Windows some time ago from an older version of Ms Office. For my meagre needs, it's perfect, and in Windows at least I notice no slow start or font issues. I've only...

    Poll: Re: Interest in reviving PlanetPenguin Racer?

    It would be nice if someone could contact the original Tux Racer devs and ask if that name is available. I much prefer that name to "Planet Penguin Racer". Even "Penguin Racer" would be better, IMHO....

    Re: Why not Automatix?

    Sounds a little slanderous. Yes, dvdcss is illegal in the US, but not everywhere. Most of the rest has to do with either being proprietary but free (like Flash or Java) or copyright encumbered (like...
  9. Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    That's one advantage the Read-Only kernel driver has, as I understand it, that it can be used to rescue data from a crashed Windows system, ie uncleanly shut down.
    I wonder if you set ntfs-3g to RO...
  10. Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    I've mounted my Windows partition like this:

    Note:
    user id = 1000 is me
    group id = 100 is "users", ie anyone with an account
    umask = 0007 gives full access to User and Group, but not Others...
  11. Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Great! Have you submitted a patch to Ubuntu/Canonical and/or Gnome?
    Cool indeed! :cool:
  12. Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Somewhere in this thread I saw mention of using
    sudo /etc/init.d/dbus restart
    to get the missing ntfs partitions to appear on the Desktop, at least until next restart. I just tried it out, and it...
  13. Re: Access problems as 'normal' win-user

    I believe it says somewhere here that ntfs-3g at this stage doesn't do Windows permissions, and assumes Admin rights. If I remember right, it was recommended to use the options no_def_opts and...

  15. Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    1. You can add an entry under /media called WinXP. This is a System directory, however, so the Nautilus file manager can't add it in normal mode. It needs to run as Root to do that.
    If you've...
  16. Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    No. I updated the system (including the kernel), and noticed ntfs-3g was updated as well. Strange thing is, I had to reboot to Windows for something, and now I'm back, the NTFS partitions don't show...
  17. Re: Sweet taste of Cider: Intel Macs may mean more games on Linux

    It is a sales pitch, to be sure. "Just Add Cider and Away You Go!" Yeah sure. I've never tried Cedega, but I do know it doesn't support all the games out there. Wine itself is still a work in...
  18. Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Yes, it's "official", at least from the developer who made ntfs-3g, even if not yet the ntfs-progs project itself. See this link:...

  20. Sweet taste of Cider: Intel Macs may mean more games on Linux

    TransGaming has announced the availability of Cider, a portability engine for Macs based on the same technology as Cedega. However it is a Game Developer product, not an end-user product, that...
  21. Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Personally I've never trusted a Linux partitioner with my Windows drive. Since they don't reliably write to NTFS, how can you trust it to resize an NTFS partition? And from my experiences with...
  22. Poll: Re: In your opinion is Ubuntu a serious rival for OSX and the upcoming Windows Vista?

    The key here is Preinstalled Linux, and not just a few cheap low-end computers for email and internet as the occasional links point to. A major OEM like Dell putting some effort into selling quality...
