been playing around with debian lately...
I think this shows Windows in its proper context (it makes a GREAT printer driver, FYI).
haha very true. i also use vmware player over virtualbox.
If you install and configure samba on the Linux host, then the Windows VM can see the host as a server, and can copy and save files from the Linux system. This way, if you have special Windows proprietary software, or a printer that is not supported in Linux, you just jump over to Windows and copy the document and send it to the Lexmark or Canon or whatever.
yup, been doing that for years. solves a lot of problems.
ubuntu 11.04 in classic mode
Epox Krai pro (via kt880 chipset)
Athlon XPm 2500+ @ 2.4 ghz
Visiontek Radeon x1550 xge
1 gb Crucial pc3200
Using Cario Dock and Screenlets
Somewhat finished (*) Gentoo 64-bit install, using kernel 3.0.6 and KDE 4.6.5. The wallpaper shows a minor train station near my parents' place.
(*) I will probably realise that I still need some progs later on (once I want to start them and think like, "Oh forgot to emerge that one") and I still need to adapt the ACLs of my data partition to be able to access it without Gentoo acting like a d**k.
some little changes..
This is so cool !!!!!!!!!!
I'm glad I'm the one who uses BSD
nice screen. i actually learned FreeBSD before Linux about 12 years ago. That was when it took days of research to get your videocard to work so you could have KDE
anyway, do you use it mainly as a desktop or something else?
Yes it is my main desktop at work. BSD is nice, I'm content
you should be. it is a fantastic OS! the ports system is my favorite. what are the main programs you use with it?
^ I'm trying to get used to it atm. I'm gonna use it for emulation, programming and multimedia purposes It looks so fluid and stable.
Played Doom 3, Serious Sam first and second encounters, Quake 1 x64, and Quake 2. Games work great.
Installed Wine and run Delphi 7. Programming and compiling work perfect
Installed Android x86 just for fun, lol
Let's revive this thread a little.
A fresh install of Gentoo X86_64, using Linux 3.3.8 and KDE 4.9 with some desktop and icon themes and an adjusted colur scheme.
Interesting how well FF looks with this colour scheme. TBH I feared the worst but it came out pretty nicely.
Clementine looks nice this way.
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS running Cinnamon
Heheh, guess I need to pretty up my openSuse..
Same with my Debian install....
linux mint kde "maya" with kernel 3.3.2 and kde 4.8.2 on my lenovo-ibm thinkpad r61
Just got Backtrack 5 R3 installed on VirtualBox.
Tried to install Slitaz on the netbook in sig. Had some issues (couldn't boot from HDD and WLAN didn't work), so I'm downloading Lubuntu now. Which is sad, because the live version is very likeble.
Did you install the GRUB or LiLo bootloader correctly to the MBR? Selecting the device path /dev/sda (without anything behind that) should work.
i gotta make a nice desktop again!
