i installed smxi from
using smxi one is able to choose the tweaks section i believe
and install useful software such as swiftfox and SKYPE
which i did.

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..

freshly bottled vintages, GREAT!

their own wine they have neighbours or friends that do!

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;
2GB swap
6GB /
1GB /home
also using a 2GB mini-SD inside an adapter as well, Asus W6A.
guess i'm going to have to remove that swap partition..

go GParted!!

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 … or-ubuntu/
just change your autostart from bluetooth-applet to blueman-applet.

#13 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Why do you use Linux? » 2009-05-09 23:08:28

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Sorry but the grandiose claim that windows is for those without thought is outdated.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?

#14 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » where do fonts go? » 2009-05-09 21:53:44

"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.

#16 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » SCIM (Chinese) not working » 2009-05-06 07:10:05

from the guide you mentioned above:

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/

this jus' added "scim -d" at the end of my, and killed conky so i cleaned it up
by opening and adding:

#Launch Scim
scim -d

# Launch Conky
conky -q &

some applications require a
rt-click->input methods->SCIM
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..
