Re: HOWTO Master List

How to enable Japanese: a new wiki page.

(I wonder if this older wiki page should point to the newer one, should be marked as dated, or should even be deleted.)

Re: HOWTO Master List

Re: HOWTO Master List

A lot of stuff non-super geeks might need is missing like
building form source?
say you cant find a package in synaptic but you can get the source files.

Here is a great How To for building from source

Obviously, the first thing you must have is the source file.  You typically can find this by doing a search such as

debian + spacefm + source + files

Re: HOWTO Master List

After a bit of searching, I found this post by uke-eda which came in very handy.  Any chance it could get posted somewhere a little more visible such as the Master How-To list or even better, linked beside the download?  When I downloaded Waldorf I had no clue what PAE was or whether or not my computer had it which is why I decided to test in VirtualBox first.

Can't start the new crunchbang i686 wheezy image in Virtualbox or VMWare. Am I the only one? It just hangs after the first menu appears.

boot: BOOT_DEBUG=3
Could not find kernel image: BOOT_DEBUG=3

I can start the installation process though. Only the live session won't start.

Solved:
Enabeling PAE under System/Processor lets crunchbang boot properly.

Re: HOWTO Master List

Hey, recently I installed firefox and everyone was super nice. However, when i saw the "How To" firefox posts here I was confused (at best). The post is old, the information is scattered, and no one mentions using the linux Mint ppa's !!

I would like to make a proper tutorial to installing firefox, and poiting x-www-browser to it, but I don't know if you people have rules, or where I can start.

Any tips?

What would you people think about How to install skype?

The rules are pretty simple, and are pretty well summed up here. It's mostly just have good manners, use the search function if you have questions, and be excellent to one another.

Re: HOWTO Master List

What's Conky?

This may sound obvious to all the #! gurus, but I just spent about an hour trying to figure out a) what conky does and b) how to start it.  I geeked out with Man pages and wikis, and was none the wiser. Ran "conky" in the Run Dialog and the terminal - nothing happened.

It honestly wasn't obvious to me that the blocks of System Info and Shortcuts on the desktop were it!

It's worth adding this somewhere in the new user type docs.  "Conky is the program that puts the System Info and Shortcut Keys lists on your desktop, and is highly configurable"

Re: HOWTO Master List

^ always check the forum first.. the forums provide the most helpful content. a quick search on the forum would've you shown this huuuge thread full with explicit conky content, which a) makes pretty much clear what conky is about and b) makes you want to spend too much time creating your own... wink

Re: HOWTO Master List

Hi new user and very new to use anything that doesn't already come on my computer. I have looked around this page for some kind of vocabulary, linux/ crashbang vocabulary list that I can scan to educate myself. I don't know if I doing anything correctly (I asked question about another topic about install) and learning some of the terms that fly around here would be very helpful.  I do what is suggested (thank you) and may be more help to myself and you if I had more of a handle of what the heck I'm doing. Thanks in advance.
