  1. Took the survey and let them know I'm not very happy with it.
  2. LOL Its funny how at crackberry.com they seem to slam the heck out of the iphone yet when it comes to having themes the most popular are the iphone look-a-like themes.
  3. Mint for me is pretty easy. Only problem with that part though is that if you learned alot about linux you forget some of the things you learned with an "easy" distro. lol
  4. Me in Coo's Bay Oregon catching some air...
  5. Fresh install and checking it out. Yea I know its ugly. lol
  6. I believe it is Kodax that has NO support for linux as I just bought one only to find that out. :(
  7. Thats some funny stuff right there. I've done a Debian install when Debian wasn't easy to install. (thanks iph) I've done a Gentoo install. (thanks vampy). I've done a Slackware install back in the day. Reason I installed Ubuntu. Cause its easy thats why. I want to look at email, read sites, chat thats it. When I do get the wild bug up my ass to do more I still can cause Ubuntu is still Linux underneath. I don't understand some people. Bitch and bitch because Linux isn't becoming main stream. Then when you have a distro that is making headways they start bitchin cause its not "their" distro making the headway. People now a days never satisfied.....
  8. It is probably U.E. (User Error) but for the life of me I could never get any of the releases of Suse to load or run correctly.
  9. AI I'm running 8.04 myself. I'm playing around tweaking looks and stuff. Working on getting my Blackberry Pearl working with the charging, which I had working before. I'd like to also get it to sync with Evolution for the email addys and stuff. tyme I have used Mint. I liked it also. Not sure what my deal is lately. I know how to do all this stuff just not up to it I guess. You all know what I mean. Get into that slump where you don't even want to look a pc/laptop? I think thats where I'm at. lol
  10. Thanks for the replies. Yes I did buy a Mac laptop but since I have sold it, and made some what of a profit. (Don't ask. :P ) Printer I have is the Kodak Easy Share 5100. I did end up downloading and install Heron last night. AI I think I might take you up on your offer. I know how to change some of the colors but its like the load screen, log in screen, and then the brown screen that comes after the log in. I know how to change the log in but its the load screen and the brown screen that comes up after the log in that I don't know how to change. By the brown screen I mean the one that comes up for just a short time. Thanks for the responses, all though!!
  11. Right now I'm Linux free. Only have Vista on this laptop. (Which by the way runs just fine) Well I'm going into Linux withdrawals and I want to run one of the distros but not sure what one. I don't want Ubuntu. I can't stand the ugly brown. I don't want Mint, although not sure why. I'd like to run Fedora but it would be hoops to jump through with the wireless card. Same with Mandy and Debian. Which is a let down as with Ubuntu/Mint all I need to do is install. Connect the cat5 cable and download what I need. With Mandy or the others it appears I need to use ndiswrapper. Thought about getting virtual box for windows but that just isn't the same. Also rocket scientist me bought a Kodak printer, which by the way is an outstanding, but does not support Linux. (I've already sent out an email to them and got my "Thats nice you use Linux and we are aware of the o.s. but guess what, YOU'RE OUT OF LUCK ANYWAYS, response) Just thought I'd vent some. lol '
  12. Been playing around a little bit. Finally unloaded MS all together on here. See how long that lasts. lol
  13. How did you get Pidgen to darken like that? Also if you are interested I found, what I think anyways, would be a new icon theme to go with your deal you got going... http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/bla...e?content=70299
  14. Well aren't you just the specialist of specials. :P
  15. Ive been running linux now for serveral years. At one point being a real "fan boy." I was really into it. Sometimes spending hours trying to get something to work. Only cause I didn't really know what I was doing. Things that later on only took like 5 mins after learning. Right now though I only use it off and on. When I get fed up with Linux I'll just boot into my Vista side for a bit. Then I'll get sick of that and start to miss Linux again and boot into it for a while. Not sure if I will ever bee "Windows" free completely. Mostly cause of games. In short. If you are new to Linux it can be frustrating, very frustrating to begin with. Since I've been using Linux though it has come a long ways. One thing to look at is maybe a different distro. I know that this is a Mandriva help site and I don't mean to take anything away from Mandy in saying that. Just saying that each distro has it's own little way, or seems to be anyways, on doing things. Maybe a different distro might be the ticket for you.
  16. Almost a bad landing on the new racing quad. :(
  17. FPS or role playing. Only thing is I'd have to install Linux on the gamer. Laptop can handle some games but not much.
  18. I should start using Linux again more often and start playing some games.
  19. I see you are liking Mint. You still have it installed and running it. :D
