Something wrong with Java.
At the very least I'm beginning to find my way around the file system and the tree. So that's good

Open a terminal and type scrot or Alt/F2 and type scrot.  That is all there is to it

Running a 'consumer grade' OS like Linux Mint makes it pretty easy. On pretty much every piece of hardware I own, a dozen or more platforms, the PrtScn key just works. Press the key, a dialog window pops up. Tell it a name for your screen grab and where to put it. Presto, graphic created. Then you can open gimp and photo edit to your heart's content. Crop it down, etc. Then post it to Imgur, which was a great suggestion on Josh's part. I just started using Imgur and like it a lot.

Honestly, you guys with your arch and slackware sometimes remind me of that scene in the movie Animal House- the 'other' fraternity's initiation rites. Whack! Thank you sir, may I have another? Whack! (etc.) :hysterical:

No, seriously, I do admire folks who compile their own OS. I've been too lazy to learn. :sorcerer: :medic: :worthy:

I believe the whole idea behind Linux ,is one dosn't side step problems ,lateral thinking is fine and workarounds cool. The first and foremost thing is community and the interaction laid bare for all to see. Novice and maestro alike . PrSc is a dead banana on this system for a while . In the meantime The gimp is coming along .

Well I've just discovered that the last entry in>///var/log/dpkg.log< was on the 2014.04.29.  Something smells a bit off there.

That as I remember was when I tried to install Skype.... So it looks like it's back to the manuals and try to repair dkpg.

I have been over on LQ looking for the answers . No luck yet .

Adobe flashplugin :- I've been wondering if I can install Palemoon will flah work in well with that .

It looks like Palemoon uses Firefox plugins and such so it should pick it up:

Palemoon is now d/lded to /usr/home. unpacked and I've got the pminstaller.sh    Now everytime I try to install I get
>Authorisation required<>Please enter your password<  in a popup box. Neither my root nor user passwords satisfy
this requirement. Does one have to get some password from the Palemoon site . I have even tried it on Root terminal .
Still no movement .

This desktop has no room for another OS. The Dell I normally use for watching movies is on the blink ,graphics wise, and it only has Microkarp on it so as I get the time I will bring that on line .

Update:- After an attack of whiskey fingers the others night I couldn't get the shut down to shut it down .I deleted the taskbar instead of closing a web page. So (humble pie swallowed whole) pressed and held in the box button until it complied . Soooooo crazy.
However today I started it up in recovery mode and with a little bit of fiddling around I have the box working again . But not totally restored to it's pristine condition.
I cannot get .the clock nor the earcandy volume control back .other things like nepomuk neither . but they are not so important . The main thing is the KDE quick launch is intact.
Two hours rooting in the online man pages gives me a new wealth of info . But sadly I cannot find the specifics that I require .
Actually the mouse which has a lot less bodyweight was totally squiffo .I was not too legless to make it down from the loft and into the crib without rousing the household . But that drunken lout of a mouse certainly created havoc with my desktop. :whistling:

Isn't that mouse a bit young to be imbibing? Are you contributing to the delinquency of a minor mouse?

If  that is the case, Right click desktop, Add widgets, find system tray item, drag-n-drop onto your panel somewhere.

Found the system tray in the swamp. Hosed it down
Stuck a few badges on it.
It works. .    
It's not where i;s supposed to be looks really ugly ,but I will pretty it up later.
Now get seated securely ....This minute I;m stuck crawling along o the worst OS ever .That and the notebook conspire to frustrate and create hot keys willi nilly.
Why ? well it;s the only way I can get out o n this <E3272> huawei broadband dongle
I've had a look in it;s files and they're written in a very obscure English ... .Has to be installed by root .

Tried the term . I can cd to the install files .But for the life of me I just cannot get the syntax right . to install the rotten thing . on Debian . Yet again the Crow is feeling really SKEWPIT!!!
And the tiny screen on this thing sure don;t help any .
