    Formatted USB key showing wrong size

    I have very new Samsung USB key 65GB purchased from a legit retail outlet. For some reason when I formatted it in Manjaro using USB stick formatter and tried copying files it claims it only has 4GB of drive space when the drive is empty. Is it something to do with the extn FAT32/NTFS? I'm a...

    Debian Mint better, worse or much the same?

    I have a 7 year old Windows 8 HP netbook that I wanted to "reform". It has 2GB of DDR3 ram, pretty crummy internal graphics, oddly enough, a touch screen, a 320GB mechanical SATA HDD, a very basic Intel processor and Windows 8. So I installed Mint Debian replacing Windows 8. The latter which...

    Manjaro-the swiss army knife of Linux distro's

    I've just moved to Manjaro KDE Plasma after many years using Mint. Its been in place for over a month now so I though I'd offer up some initial impressions. I'll add before I start this is my experience and may not apply to everyone. Installing Manjaro is wonderfully easy. I appreciated it...

    Hands up if you dislike dolphin file manager

    I like Manjaro but I deeply wish they had chosen a different default file manager. Dolphin is a buggy headache on so many levels and its made worse by the lack of an obvious "delete" function. Instead you have "move to trash" which does not work on large files. I actually had to do a search to...

    Weird clock/time related problems in Manjaro

    Has anyone else had clock related problems in Manjaro KDE plasma? I have checked and its set for the right country/timezone but for some reason the time every day is incorrect and I have to manually re-set it. I had exactly the same problem with Mint. I have heard a rumour its common in dual...

    Roblox

    My daughter wants Roblox on her Linux desktop. Yes I could install a dual boot with 10 but Linux has parental control software installed that actually works and I'd need a crow bar to pry her off the system with no time limits (before anyone asks parental control software in Windows is in my...

    Hi All

    Hi All, I started out with tech back in the late 80's in network support installing and tinkering with IBM DOS on IBM desktops. Big heavy things that you needed a solid trolley to cart around to end users. I'm am not surprisingly a long term Windows user and have been into Linux since 2017...

    Feren OS

    Thought I'd give my five cents worth on Feren OS. I have till recently been a long term Mint user but decided to make the switch to Feren. It shares the same origins as Mint but I think I mostly like it more. I'll add these are my opinions not a fact written in stone so keep this in mind when...
