  2. Re: Installing Google chrome and Dropbox through terminal

    Coincidentally, I finalled installed Dropbox on Lubuntu last night. Despite having the same concerns that "nautilus-dropbox" implies that it would not work in Lubuntu, it actually appears to work...

    Re: L to X

    I would be really interested to hear what you like about Xubuntu (vs Lubuntu). I've been using Lubuntu for about half a year and love the speed of it.

    Re: Things that you dislike in Ubuntu

    Sounds like one of the known release issues. See here for solution - I seem to recall that the solution when I upgraded to Lubuntu 14.04 was:

    Re: Small Laptop, Which One Is Best?

    As you are evidently in the UK, eBuyer are selling a laptop preloaded with Ubuntu (so you wouldn't have to pay for Windows, and I assume that you can be confident it will work). I don't know...

    Re: New PC spec

    All of the above matches my requirements. The most processor/memory/storage intensive thing I want my PC to do is process digital photos (Gimp). Otherwise, it's for web-browing (and youtube/other...
  9. Re: Levelling out volume for audio tracks. how to do it?

    Further to ssam's reply above - the linked article mentions MP3Gain which I understand scans your entire MP3 library and makes non-destructive changes to the MP3 files so as to balance the entire...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Is there a way to mark files for batch operations?

    On the basis of earlier answers, I installed Shotwell last night and played with it briefly, but had not got as far as discovering Spacemen12's method above - which looks perfect for what I want to...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Is there a way to mark files for batch operations?

    Thanks for the replies.

    Whitesmith's approach is the one I'm trying to avoid through laziness :~)

    TheFu's idea is probably quicker than changing groups.

    Maybe I should just edit my photos...
  12. [SOLVED] Is there a way to mark files for batch operations?

    Re: Is there an Ubuntu Guide?

    This might not be quite what you are looking for:

    A downloadable pdf of c500 pages that runs through all the commands. It sounds very daunting, but is actually...
  14. Re: Why are the default installations so ugly?

  15. Re: The 'coming doom' for Windows XP users and what can be done...

    May I ask a (potentially) dumb question:

  16. [all variants] Re: What replacement distro for Netbook with Win XP?
