    Solved How do you backup your system configuration?

    Like the venerable Puppy user Mike I use an OS that does not need a backup: Porteus. All user and custom settings are saved to a module and a simple copy n paste is all that is needed. Bullet proof. Vektor

    Solved autokey-xdotool key press and hold

    Xmacro is a program I have used for years. Very configurable and easy to record. It relies on windows being in the same place, so changes in screen res or multiple monitors will wreak havoc. Vektor

    Solved Linux vs hp

    I still have my account. Tried to install the host but failed. Nothing for Slackware that I saw. Tried generic and failed. Cool though that they can do native Linux now. Thanks for the heads up. I will stay on topic now. Vektor

    Best linux distribution for beginners

    The word "beginners" seems misleading to me. Someone with zero experience using a computer comes to mind. If I were to try to guide someone to Linux it would be with a "live" system. Any mainstream live Linux will be a good starting point. Once they learn the basics their willingness to...

    I officially give up - how do you xfer files between a windows laptop and a Linux mint desktop?

    M$Windows usually throws a monkey wrench into the works. Best to jump in with both feet and see what happens. I know DWService needs to be run as root to install but I do not know about the portable aspect. Good luck. Vektor

    Post a screenshot and the config of your Conky

    Hi KGIII The little thingy in your post #5 is too funny. Made my day. Back on topic... I made seperate Conky windows for individual aspects : CPU, ram and swap, upload-download, ports, disk I/O and disk usage. Only bring them up as needed. In KDE I set the little Conkies to "always on top"...

    I officially give up - how do you xfer files between a windows laptop and a Linux mint desktop?

    I too have given up and have 3 filesharing programs for just this case. Dukto resembles a phone and is simple. Each computer needs it running to work. Local network only. Lanxchange is a Java app and is also simple. Each computer needs it running to...

    Audacity and other programs lifting system library requirements

    Such is life. I was totally happy with Porteus KDE 32 bit and then somebody with the ID10T error came along and invented 64 bit. Harrumph! Vektor

    The divorce is final. Now to ditch MS for good! (And a bit of useful info.)

    @STaylor I have had errily similar water problems as you. I ended up replacing all pvc with copper. Sweat soldered. Bullet proof. I also installed brass ball valves on all equipment connections. There is a system that senses water leaks and shuts off the supply. Do a Duck search for that. Vektor
