Re: ROSA R10

The latest kernel isn't in love with my Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro. It literally hangs on bootup every other time. Never did this before (well, it would hang, but it was more like once every 15-20 boots), not it's quite literally every other bootup. Given my Yoga 3 Pro isn't a production critical machine and...

Re: Plata GTK theme is now available

I wouldn't call it beautiful, but it is better looking than the default theme that Gnome uses IMO.

Re: e6420

Let me grab a box for it, and I can weigh it and measure it and should be able to get exact pricing for shipping.

Wow, yeah...that doesn't sound fun. It's been YEARS now since I had to deal with snow, so honestly barely even remember those issues.

Re: *GOOD* full featured file manager in Ubuntu

XFE is nice with the dual panes, but fails completely at being able to connect to cifs/smb mounts. Caja does work, but doesn't create a menu icon for gnome (weird), and also doensn't support (that I can find) dual paned view, so no better than Thunar. Also Thunar seems faster.

I seem to recall the onboard NIC is dead, but otherwise all hardware is functional. Not too certain which processor it...

Re: Free Chess Club- A modern desktop app for playing chess online

That's kinda cool. If anyone on the boards ever wants to play, I'd be up for getting demolished. I love playing, but I'm not actually very good.
