  11. Re: Serious Dilema. Graphic Designer about CorelDRAW X3 - X6 on WINE

    Sadly, I think QIII is right, you'll probably need to stay with Windows. Instead of dual booting, though, why not install Xubuntu in a VM? It will run acceptably on as little as one gig of RAM.

    I'll add my vote for PIA. Very reasonable rates, no logging, zero-knowledge.

    [all variants] Re: xgamma alternative?

    Your output name is "LCD", so you'll want to type this

    xrandr --output LCD --gamma 0.9:0.9:0.9

    Re: Remote Desktop Connection and RD Gateway

    Not sure what you mean. Your wife's work will have provided a domain and suffix for their RDP server (a .com, .edu. .org, or etc.). There may also be a separate domain for the gateway server.
