    Re: HOWTO: The power of Fluxbox keys

  2. [ubuntu] Re: Remove GNOME and everything that has anything to do with it

    [xubuntu] Re: How do I start Xfce without GDM?

    I don't know what the permissions trouble might be but I think .xinitrc is the correct file to put the command to start xfce in. Then I think the correct way is to end your .bash_profile with the...

    [all variants] Re: Searching for file bigger than size X

    Use the command "find". The option "-size" is what you're looking for. Have a look at "man find", you should get a hang of it after investing some ten minutes of reading.

  8. [ubuntu] Re: How to record the sound when calling with skype?

    Perhaps you can use a tpipe too redirect the output to both speaker and file?

    [ubuntu] Re: Partion manager help?
