  1. Like I said in a previous post about Garuda Linux. Wow! What a difference from a couple of years ago. Both the Cinnamon DE version and the KDE Plasma version are Fast, slick, and lots of features as well as eye candy. I installed both of them to a SSD using GPT partitioning with a EFI, Boot, Swap, and Home for each of them. I am using the Garuda Grub to Boot my Primary Mint on another SSD and both of the Garuda Distro’s on this SSD. I'll start with the latest version with the KDE Plasma DE. It booted fairly fast. During the installation it uses the BTRFS as default instead of letting you use EXT4. I could find no place to change it to EXT4 so went ahead and installed it using BTRFS. (see the note below). The install did not take long at all and It booted right up to a welcome screen. The first thing it wanted to do was update the system. It took me a while to figure out how to do it. One of the things I did not like was the dark desktop and the hard for me to see very light print with my old eyes. (I'll change that as soon as I figure out how). The update was slow and a little confusing for me at first. I kept getting a message saying (failed because of a conflict with network manager). I finally figured out how to delete one of the files causing the conflict. After that the update went smoothly although very slow. Next was to install Thunderbird and Variety Wall paper changer. It was a simple matter to copy them off of one of my SSD's and put them in Garuda's home directory and then install new ones with Pacman or Octopy thereby keeping all of my email and wallpaper settings. It appears that Garuda by default uses a Browser called DragonFire that looks like and may be Firefox, but it works different and I could not get it to sync my Bookmarks and settings, So I downloaded firefox and google-chrome. I sync-ed both of them and everything is working fine. On all of the menus the buttons are on the left instead of on the right. I am sure that can be changed. When I went to do a update using pacman a box jumped up and said use (Garuda update) instead. I used (pacman -Syu). I've only played with it for a few hours, but like what I've seen so far. I need to learn more about it as I've not used KDE For several years. Stay tuned for Part 2 and also my install of the Cinnamon version. NOTE: If you Preinstall The partitions using EXT 4 then use edit each partition without formating you can use EXT4 instead of BRTFS. I was able to change the buttons on the windsows to the right side by changing the theme to Breeze. Mel
  2. Which? finds half of Windows 10 users have encountered problems, calls for Microsoft to pay compensation Are you one of the few to have had a problem with Windows 10 ? You may be able to claim compensation.

    It's that time of year, folks. Go over to the Linux Counter Project website and login, renew, update, etc. Happy 2013!
  4. Gee, where's Eric been all afternoon and evening? He's probably had his head buried in that Cisco text book, I'll bet. Well, you'd be wrong, capacitor breath. He was actually attempting to recover his main and laptop installations of Slackware after they crashed and burned from an update earlier today. Weeeeeeeeee! As some of you may know, I've been running Current since upgrading from 13.37 earlier last year. Sadly, an update that came out today (numerous updates/upgrades, actually) did not play well with my main nor my laptop systems. I was somehow able to recover the lappy, but the main was UGLY. I didn't update the shop system. It survived intact, but may get wiped anyway. I had to wipe my / partition and recover from an rsync mirror. Ooopsy! Bad rsync backup. That didn't help much. You should always check your backups after you create them to make sure they are actually going to work if you should ever need them. Silly me. That bad backup was my fault. I did something stupid, but we won't go there. Anywho, I decided to just wipe the / partition clean and reinstall Slack (stable); leaving the /home partition alone, of course. That went well. It's now after 0230hrs. I'm tired. I've customized, tweaked, installed, setup, etc. for the past 6 hours. I think I've got it mostly finished. I even took a pretty picture for you to see... Yes. What you're seeing is no illusion. They are slinging snowballs down under... and I don't mean Australia. That really is KDE you're seeing there. I'm going to bed now. Didn't get much studying done tonight. Later... P.S. Wonder how the lappy would like a nice new KDE installation?
