  1. [all variants] Backup Plan? Replace OSX but still go back if neccessary?

    After seeing what the new release of OSX looks like (butt-ugly IMHO, they've now removed just about everything I liked) I'm no longer as adamant about being able to dual boot as I once was. Given...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Bash script for converting video formats

    I ended up using Handbrake and following some of the suggestions on the xbmc4xbox forums. Thanks for the replies. I dunno why the script didn't work but I got the job done so I'm satisfied.
  3. [SOLVED] Bash script for converting video formats

    I've tried to run this bash script both on Ubuntu Mate and on my Macbook with errors. Could anyone please look at it and help me get it to run? I recently dug out the old xbox and with a friend who...

  5. [all variants] Re: Mass renaming multiple directories!

    Whoops! Well that's exactly why I'm so nervous here. I desperately am afraid of making silly typos like this and trashing my media!

    Thanks for the reply! I just fixed what you pointed out and...
  6. [all variants] Re: Mass renaming multiple directories!

    Everything is on my portable 2TB USB drive. It's my primary back up of all my media right now. I'm trying to get it organized and then I want to import everything in it to XBMC, then have it export...
  7. [all variants] Re: Mass renaming multiple directories!

    I was looking into those last night while I waited for a reply. Unfortunately I don't know how to properly use wildcards to block out the entire area I want to remove.
  8. [all variants] [solved!] Mass renaming multiple directories!

    Can anyone give me some command line renaming help?

    I foolishly decided to rename all my media directories with the year the show was made at the end of it. For instance:

  9. Re: Point Linux, the new Debian + MATE distro

    That's awesome news! Thanks for the heads up!

    I used the 32-bit ISO, I plan to run the distro on my netbook as well as my desktops, so I went for the 32-bit even though I could use 64-bit on...
  10. Re: Point Linux, the new Debian + MATE distro

    Going to be replying here since the forums aren't up over there yet. (Also Google has never heard of the distro--have you submitted to Distrowatch in order to get some traction?)

    I installed it...

  12. Re: Does mate desktop enviroment cut it? What's its future?

    My understanding (and I freely admit I could be incorrect here) is that when the GNOME developers decided to go with Gnome Shell they anticipated resistance from the userbase so deliberately wrote...
  13. Re: Point Linux, the new Debian + MATE distro

    Thank you for posting this. I'm definitely feeling the pressure of the EOL for Lucid creeping up from behind, so have been actively seeking out MATE desktop distros. This looks like it could be a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Set ownership recursively?

    That results in this:

    [sudo] password for bornagainpenguin:
    chmod: invalid mode: `xxx'

    I have an XBMC profile I copied over to a shared folder from my laptop (running Lucid 10.04) to my parent's desktop (also running Lucid 10.04) and in the copying everything lost its ownership...

    I'll miss the Linux Format magazines when\if they go, if for no other reason than for the cover discs. Not everyone has bandwidth where they live, so it's always nice to be able to drop by one of...
  17. Re: is there an Android app for Ubuntu foruma?

    Not every phone is supported by Firefox, nor do people feel like having to resize every single page in the browser. Apps like Tapatalk make using forums on the phone a dream. If paying for it...

    Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

    It was crashy and painful to use. This is less a reflection on your remix and the MATE desktop and more of an indicator of how crappy Ubuntu has grown over the years. I haven't really been happy...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: iomega NAS access via ethernet directly?

    Thanks any way. While it bugs me that it is possible to do something in Windows that I can't seem to do in Ubuntu, I'm home for the evening and am going to see what I can copy to my SDCard for when...
  20. [ubuntu] iomega NAS access via ethernet directly?

    I have a 1TB iomega HMNHD NAS, on Windowx XP it is possible to connect it directly tothe ethernet port and access the mounted drive as shared, in Ubuntu 10.04.4 I do not seem to be able to do this. ...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: "Ubuntu for Android" and Tablets?

    This is very cool, but since it is intended for Enterprise I doubt we'll be seeing it any time soon in stores. Glad to see that there is at least some attention being given to Android though I'd...
  22. Re: Whatever happend to the android execution environment

    Sure, but it could have been Shuttleworth in front of the MATE or the Cinnamon projects instead of Lefebvre. Instead we got "unity" and all its intentional lack of customizations. Heck the Cinnamon...
  23. Re: Whatever happend to the android execution environment

    Not just that, but there's also the fact that BlueStacks is forging ahead and porting their Android Player runtime environment to Windows and MacOS, but not Linux--probably precisely because...
