i installed smxi from smxi.org
using smxi one is able to choose the tweaks section i believe
and install useful software such as swiftfox and SKYPE
which i did.
it opened, i clicked the agree to useage terms and after some time
my contacts were downloaded. i changed notifications
and tested the sounds and calls with no challenges.
love smxi! and inxi..
also use smxi for installing video drivers, creating a Xorg config file..
This has always been the "unofficial official" Debian answer - Testing will become Stable "when it's ready".
"He will drink no wine before its time." Frankly, I've never had any problem drinking freshly-bottled vintages...
freshly bottled vintages, GREAT!
i learned to appreciate cloudy wine, freshly pressed and bottled when i visited my family in slovenija..
delicious, Fruity and Easy to Drink! what a great country, if your friends and family do not make
their own wine they have neighbours or friends that do!

GParted 4GB stick to fat32, mounted, unetbootin xfce statler A2, with wired 'net.
cb-welcome script did the updates
keyboard layout[used workaround from known issues]
You don't need swap with Statler.
thx again pvsage, reinstalling is my project for today..
CPU[-Single core Intel Pentium M (-UP-) clocked at 797.951 Mhz-]
Kernel[-2.6.32-5-686 i686-] Up[-8 min-]
Don't forget that a swap partition on a flash drive is a very bad idea and will slow things down terribly, so when you get to the partitions step...
i had no idea about this thx for the info!.
i've put 2 OS on this partitioned 8GB stick.
first time it was peppermint ICE. then i was using LMDE and thought statler
would also run pretty smooth.
so as of now i had partitioned the 8GB with;
also using a 2GB mini-SD inside an adapter as well, Asus W6A.
guess i'm going to have to remove that swap partition..
Clock setting issues... I changed time zone in Orage and in Tint2 to to America/Chicago and CDT (respectively) and my system time is still 10 hours ahead.
sudo apt-get install ntp
thx to anonymous from his comment on another thread..
you could try blueman instead of the default bluetooth applet, I just switched and like it better...
after you follow the instructions on this page http://bigbrovar.wordpress.com/2009/02/ … or-ubuntu/
just change your autostart from bluetooth-applet to blueman-applet.
koopa koopa, u da bomba!

I suppose there is no such thing as the right to choose windows, then?
freedom = windows, posix, OSX or whatever your imagination can touch.
How about choosing the ever popular Linux base of Ubuntu as herd-mentality, say over something more endeavourus as Slitaz? or Arch?
i have slitaz(cooking) on my downloadin' box.
Sorry but the grandiose claim that windows is for those without thought is outdated.
my post was meant to express windoze=limited choice. it is an example of proprietary might no?
"You have to understand,
most of these people are not ready to be unplugged..
And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it."
this is my reason for installing linux, wipin' windoze.
my own and my fellow human beings' by supporting our right to choose.
we move toward it by conscious choice and effort.
from the guide you mentioned above: http://crunchbanglinux.org/wiki/howto_configure_scim
echo 'export LANG=“en_US.UTF-8”' >> /etc/profile
gave me Permission denied, so i nano'd /etc/profile and put it in myself
To start SCIM at login:
In the terminal enter as normal user:
echo 'scim -d' » ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh
this jus' added "scim -d" at the end of my autostart.sh, and killed conky so i cleaned it up
by opening autostart.sh and adding:
# Launch Conky
conky -q &
some applications require a
in order to use SCIM
hey ya'll, thx for readin!
i began with kubuntu/gutsy and fulfilled a longheld curiosity about linux.
so after many many install, updates i was on the ubuntu open week irc
and heard someone talking about xubuntu.
But, it still wasn't what i was looking for.
somehow i found a link to crunchbang/blog and liked what i saw.
burn the lite cd and BANG, in love.
so far, so awesome..
