Re: POLL: Do you use Gnome or KDE?

I just found something that, if true, would make move away from KDE: Ooh, it's bitch-about-how-software-is-shit time again! Seriously, it's hard to expect stability from any software project -- free or proprietary -- that can't be bothered to commit to basic practices like test-first development, a...

Re: POLL: Do you use Gnome or KDE?

I prefer light-weight desktops, too. On Windows, i replaced the shell with Litestep or SharpEnviro, for example, or used an LCARS interface for a while. KDE just seems to be a good comprise of eye-candy and functionality. The integration of the Compiz effects in the WM works nice for me, whereas Eme...

Re: POLL: Do you use Gnome or KDE?

i assume Gnome and KDE were chosen for their completeness, which is one of the key elements that made me decide on KDE. The ability to change the layout of the GUI is the other. i NEED the option to disable menubars and change the position of the toolbars (and the icons) to the side or to the bottom...

Re: Needing more volume

i didn't have the pavucontrol, so i installed it. It was set to 90%, but setting it to 100% did little. Maybe it's not "much" too silent, but since i can increase the volume in VLC i would like to be able to do so for all apps.

Re: Mobile Broadband not working

i'm using Sakis3G with a W14 stick and it works great. The only drawback is the overhead.

Re: Needing more volume

i have the same problem on KDE. i checked alsamixer in a terminal, but it's at max, too. i can easily increase the volume in VLC, but anywhere else (videos on websites, for example) it remains too silent. Edit: It's not just since last update. It has been like this since the install, i just didn't b...

Re: Changing Menu Orb?

Is that the path where the Gnome-Wine icons are?

i can't help You much, since i'm a KDE user. If i understand You correctly You want to replace the menu icon. Isn't there something like KBFX for Gnome?

Re: Firefox und Thunderbird unscharf nach Sabayon-Updates

Das "wenn überhaupt" war von mir falsch gewählt. Ich glaube viele haben Probleme mit den Augen (und wissen es nichtmal) und/oder deren Bildschirme sind nicht scharf genug solche feinen Abweichungen darzustellen. Da es mir aber auch nicht aufgefallen ist, gehe ich davon aus, dass es mit Schrifteinste...

Re: Oh, a fairytale gone bad! - what now?

i did not, i would have mentioned it otherwise. For updates i use Sulfur solely.

Edit:
i see now that my post wasn't really clear. This is a suggestion to improve Sulfur by providing some information for users what they should do when something like that happens.

Re: "Probleme" beim Bootvorgang

Welche Version Du hast kannst Du leicht überprüfen, indem Du in die GRUB Konsole schaltest. (in GRUB "C" drücken) GRUB2 sollte solche Probleme aber nicht verursachen, da es ja die installierten Systeme automatisch erkennt und selbst entsprechende Boot-parameter erstellt. Was Du beschreibst ist der I...
