    [ubuntu] Re: Could You Help Me Choose A Flavour?

    Also, I have installed Xubuntu from inside Ubuntu but the desktop background image keeps changing and goes into lines, rendering the desktop virtually unreadable. Now, when I boot into Ubuntu with...

    [ubuntu] Re: Could You Help Me Choose A Flavour?

    Thanks.

    Well, someone suggested I try Mint. Took a look and decided I like it, though that is only from reading the page. But whatever I end up with, I don't want other versions clogging up my...

    [ubuntu] Could You Help Me Choose A Flavour?

    I first installed Ubuntu. Then after having a few problems after the GNOME installation (whatever Gnome is), I downloaded Xubuntu. I'm not sure what I'm doing but seem to now have this weird...
  4. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    Cheers. This forum needs a button to thank individual posters.

    Right... well, I know better what Linux is (more importantly what it isn't) and that there's a lot more to learn. If there's one...
  5. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    Sounds great. Not sure what 'KDE' refers to. I'm trying to get my head around all these different options. It's incredibly confusing.
  6. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    This looks interesting. I would like to try this out...

  7. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    Great! Thankyou. I'll give this a go and see how I get on with it. Would you suggest uninstalling Ubuntu and starting fresh with Mint? You see, I installed Xubuntu from inside Ubuntu and it's...
  8. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    No, I actually read that article before installing it. Long before I ever tried Linux. It just so happens it came along with GNOME desktop. Not much better than on Windows (except for once, I...
  9. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    Of course I haven't missed the point. What would be the point of trying something other than Windows, if it was just another Windows?



    Ah... sadly, you ARE obliged to buy into propriety...
  10. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    I find myself agreeing with this.



    So, what you're saying is, problems lead to solutions and having to find solutions help us understand how our computers work in the first place? I think...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu/ Mozilla Firefox Failing To Connect

    I seriously doubt re-installing Firefox will do any good. Ubuntu is already showing signs of erratic behaviour and has done from the start. Possibly the only stable component IS Firefox!

    As for...
  12. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    And how would you propose such a paradigm shift might come about? What do you think Linux would need to offer, in order for desktop popularity to become a reality?

    Okay, maybe the fault isn't so...
  13. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    So let's weigh the positives and negatives (in my experience so far). There are a couple of things I'm finding Linux suitable for - and that's my basic office needs and the surfing of the web. ...
  14. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    A presence... yes. It does. However, it seems that is because Linux is often modified by programmers to suit a particular company's needs. I'm aware that its highly configurable aspect makes it...
  15. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    So, it seems I built a straw man version of Linux. In other words, I built it up as something in my head, that it isn't. I guess a lot of people must do that at first. Well, when I finally leave...
  16. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    Fair enough. Thank you.
  17. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    Well, I don't take much offence, but it still is a bit insulting, if you think about it. For me, it's not a recurring discussion but a new one to me, so I'm not really concerned if it recurs or...
  18. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    Those are really good answers, guys and it turns out I have actually learned something through reading the link. More helpful, possibly, than the act of 'moving the thread to "Recurring Discussions"...
  19. Re: Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    Well, I will read it thoroughly and thank you for the link. As said, as a newcomer, I can only relay to you my first blush experience with Linux, even if my objections turn out to be the result of a...
  20. Does Linux really have a future in the professional world?

    Before I begin, please note, I am not a trolling cynic who supports large multi-national corporations. I do not have a lot of funding behind me. I want to believe in Open Source and was originally...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu/ Mozilla Firefox Failing To Connect

    Can no one answer this? I would have expected someone in the know to come forward with an answer by now.
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu/ Mozilla Firefox Failing To Connect

    Hi there, kc1di. Thanks for replying.

    The machine is based upon Athlon 64 +988 MHrz processor with 1GB RAM. I have a wired connection to the Virgin Media Broadband wireless hub to which my...
  23. [ubuntu] Ubuntu/ Mozilla Firefox Failing To Connect

    After booting, I open Firefox and the process of 'connecting' will go on indefinitely or more likely stop and offer the 'Failed to connect' error message in Firefox.

    If I restart the system...

    [gnome] Re: Themes Won't Install

    Thanks. If I were to switch to Xubuntu, what would that involve? Would I have to wipe my hard drive, reformat it and start again?

    I like Ubuntu so far but if Xubuntu is more apt for an older...

    [gnome] Re: Themes Won't Install

    Homework assignments! Yes! Thank you for breaking it down. The journey is easier when you have a map. Still, I'd rather put the time and energy in to this than spend any more wrestling with...
