    Re: Anyone else try Abiword recently?

    Yeah, BL is using Stable, and Abiword is available.

    I do have Abiword installed here, but in Arch. I haven't been using it much, but it's good enough for what I need.

    [all variants] Re: A good music player?

    Ha-ha, I'm an 'old dawg' -- good luck with that! But anyway I've been using Audacious for the past few years. I've spent time with lots of other Linux music/media players over the years; I was...
  3. Re: What is your fav DE (desktop environment) or WM (window managers)

    Ah! Yeah, I use a vertical left oriented panel myself! With Xfce, but also with other DEs/WMs, even KDE Plasma.
  4. Re: What is your fav DE (desktop environment) or WM (window managers)

    I don't have a single favorite DE or WM. I regularly use Openbox, Xfce, LXQt, Fluxbox, KDE Plasma, and GNOME. Over the years, I've enjoyed several others. Sometimes it seems like my favorite is...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: What is the each command's different merit between su and sudo?

    Seriously, your best bet is to type something like su vs sudo in a web search engine and then start reading. You'll find tons of info on this topic.
  6. Re: Best way to share docs between desktop and laptop?

    I use flash drives and email attachments to share files between computers. Yeah, trying to find ways to label flash drives, that's a drawback.

    Re: Plant based "Meats". Your opinion?

    I rarely eat meat, but I am not a strict vegetarian. I tried that Impossible Burger from Burger King. Thought it was ok, but not something I'd go out of my way for. When I want meat, I don't want...
  8. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Oh, and thanks very much for all the work on that "MaintenanceFreeCustomGrub2Screen" page, and this thread -- it's all been a big help to me. I've done lots of maintenance-free grub setups in the...

    I've been using Nomacs for quickly cropping images, but not for video.
  11. Re: When listening to music do you prefer audio only or do you like music videos ?

    Audio only.
  12. Re: Why do you choose Ubuntu but not Windows or MacOS?

    There's really a message that says that??? (I have no experience with Windows 10.)
  13. Re: Why do you choose Ubuntu but not Windows or MacOS?

    I prefer Linux because it's FOSS -- I'll go with FOSS over "proprietary" whenever possible -- and because with Linux, my computing needs are covered for a fraction of what it would cost me if I used...

    Re: Discussion thread for "What is the Best Ubuntu Flavour?"

    Thanks! :oops:



    I like that the thread includes a post about "Unofficial Desktop Environments" (post #5) and another one about "Alternative Window Manager Environments" (post #6). It's kind of...

    Re: Do you watch tv?

    I had the tv on for a college football game about two weeks ago, then haven't turned it on since then. Going weeks at a time without turning the tv on is typical for me; I don't like to sit and watch...

    Re: Discussion thread for "What is the Best Ubuntu Flavour?"

    I run Kubuntu. I have no opinion about what is the "best" flavour. Of the 'Buntus, I've only spent time with Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Xubuntu. Kubuntu was one of the first Linux distros I tried -- first...

    really???

    If a mod is going to delete somebody's posts, it would be nice if that mod would at least have the common courtesy to explain why that action was taken.

    Hm, kind of like here. For years, I'd always use Synaptic with any Debian-based distro, regardless of what other GUI package manager was included (never cared for the Ubuntu Software Center). But now...

    Re: about purer distros

    I get what you're saying, but I feel somewhat uncomfortable with these sorts of generalizations. What is an "ordinary mortal"? Are Slackware and Debian users not human?

    [SOLVED] Re: Anyone using KDE Plasma?

    Yep, Kubuntu. And I'd suggest trying the "Minimal installation" option when you get to that point of the installer.

    Re: about purer distros

    Maybe. But it depends on the user. Debian wasn't my first distro, but I started running it fairly early on, and it certainly didn't drive me away from Linux.
  25. Re: How many use a wireless mouse and keyboard?

    Wow. I live in an apartment, and I use a wireless mouse, but not a wireless keyboard. I don't worry about this sort of thing at all, though.
