    Window Maker

    WindowMaker on PCLinuxOS - WindowMaker Internals Part 1 Patrick G Horneker (phorneker) An excellent article from the super PCLinuxOS magazine that gives detailed information on how to fiddle around with Window Maker. Why don’t you use Window Maker GNU Step to improve your computer interaction performance A quirky article extolling the many fine attributes of Window Maker. It looks as though the article was published in 2018.

    Heh! That reminds me of the computer systems at Sears Service when I worked there in '94-2000. They were dumb terminals feeding off a crappy little mainframe. The terminals were text ONLY green phosphorous. Yeah, Sears never was any good at catching up the "new'. That's one of the main reasons they are in such bad financial straits nowadays.

    I think one of the reasons I avoided Windows at home was because of the abominable way the technical science folks were treated at work. At one time the only PC in our department was in the lab secretary's office so she could type memos for the boss. Then we had one old DOS machine for 10 of us. When we did get individual PCs we were given the worst hand me down desktops while top management cluelessly carted about the latest notebooks. When I retired at the end of 2004 my work machine had a Pentium 3 500 MHz processor. Unilever's penchant for standardization meant we had software that was 5 years behind the times. Our browsers were so old you couldn't even use them to order office supplies. After I retired Unilever figured out they could get more unpaid work out of the worker bees by providing them with laptops. Go figure. Now my SIL has a company supplied phone and laptop so he's on call 24/7.

    A Third Major Mobile OS

    Looks like they might just have to depend on the Chinese market. Huawei sales collapse.
  13. Or, BY Chinese owned companies somewhere in the Far East.
  14. Yes... https://www.reuters.com/article/us-foxconn-vietnam-apple-exclusive/exclusive-foxconn-to-shift-some-apple-production-to-vietnam-to-minimise-china-risk-idUSKBN2860VN

    Similar misfits... HA! I could have written that post myself. started out in '83 with Commodore Vic 20 (not my own... friend's system) and my own Commodore SX-64 had moderate computer experiences at the workplace with 486/Win 3.1 in '89-'90 had a computer hiatus from '90 till about 2000 when my brother gave me his hand-me-down Pentium I machine w/ Win 98 on it dial-up access in 2000 built my first machine (desktop) in 2001 or so DSL access in 2002 said bye-bye to Windows as a primary OS back in 2006 began learning GNU/LInux by running numerous distributions and getting assistance from Scot's and other places online before 2006 ended, had settled on Slackware as my primary OS got my very first ever laptop (thanks to @securitybreach in 2009 or so Verizon (later Frontier) FIOS access 2010 built numerous systems for friends, family and myself over the last decade... I'm up to ericsbane07 (2016) currently no smart phone until just recently (Android) have NEVER had cameras or microphones connected to my systems routers were either ISP provided (currently) or Linksys. vid cards ONLY Nvidia PSUs mostly Antec processors 99% AMD, the Intel processors I've used were in my laptop that Josh gave me and ericsbane01 favorite brands: HP, Logitech, Antec, AMD, Western Digital, Nvidia, etc. Ah... the memories!

    Amazon Fire HD 10 (2019)

    I'll have a read through and perhaps try it next week. Right now I'm busy with Thanksgiving dinner. THANK YOU. Even if it doesn't work, it is worth trying because the tablet is useless in it's current state. (Of course, I'm not sure what I do to get the tablet to see the micro sd card when I turn it on because it stalls at loading system).

    When it comes to IT I never have been one who follows the latest trends. When people were buying Apple PCs I got Commodore stuff. When Windows came out I was using Amiga. I have never had an iPod, iPad or IPhone. My current smartphone is Android. When iMacs were hot, I switched to Linux. My netbooks have never run Windows. I have always preferred AMD to Intel. I had D-Link when the smart money was on Linksys. Now I have Linksys when Eero and Google are hot. While most people today use smartphones and laptops, I prefer my good old desktop systems. There are a couple exceptions. I have pretty much used Nvidia graphics when I had to choose. And I have embraced the SSD. I suspect that many members here at Scot's are similar misfits.
  18. I never have been a KDE fanboi but I agree that the latest Plasma is pretty slick.
  19. I read today that some companies like Foxconn, Pegatron and Compal are planning to move production (mostly Apple stuff) out of China. So things might be changing a bit.
  20. Nice! I've got Kubuntu 20.04 (LTS) on one laptop, and I added Fluxbox to that installation. I go back and forth, using KDE Plasma one day, Fluxbox another day. I tend to try to avoid having two DEs on one system because the menus can get kinda messy, but that isn't such a big deal. I do enjoy using KDE Plasma.

    Network not working Slackware

    Glad I could help you, Mel. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Stay safe and healthy!
  22. I hav'nt used KDE for several years and tonight I installed KDE Plasma DE to my My Mint 20 Cinnamon. What a pleasant surprise. It is working great so far. I can switch back and forth between the 2 DE's. I think maybe this KDE Plasma is a keeper. Very configurable. Mel

    sounds like we can rule out DM then. can you boot with a different kernel? or do you never get to that option? This sounds like it could be your issue too, although I'm not sure of all your symptoms: https://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php?topic=148702.0

    installing zoom

    apt is a tool for packages in the repo, but it isn't the tool you want for downloaded deb packages. you either want gdebi (gui) or dpkg (command line). If you prefer a GUI installation method, you'll probably need to install gdebi first: sudo apt install gdebi and then open the zoom.deb with gdebi, which will check dependencies, etc... if all dependencies are satisfied (usually are in an up-to-date distro and a recent package), just click the install button and gdebi handles the rest. If you're comfortable with the command line, dpkg is the tool you want for deb package management, and "-i" is the flag for installation. just open a terminal and type: sudo dpkg -i name_of_zoom_package.deb and watch zoom get installed that way. EDIT: I see you got apt to work with the -f flag. brute force, but if it works, who says that's wrong? LOL!
