      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  1. Eterm

    Good stuff Jet2k5! Thanks for this tip. :D I'll be refering all my Linux buds who are interested in a transparent terminal to this thread.
  2. I logged into xp today....

    I know the feeling. The only reason I keep an XP partition on my box is because I have clients call me asking questions that pertain to XP. Win is such a pain to keep running. Update your virus sigs, update your Adaware and Spybot sigs, run Win update to get the latest security patch, run virus scans, run mal-ware scans, pray that all this is enough. I've half a mind to blow my XP partition away too! :P

    Ewww! Good luck with that man! Stay safe!

    It must be a SuSE thing. :P LoL!
  5. Eterm

    It was a 0 (zero). I copied the code you posted. If I substitute an "O", Eterm launches. Anyways, it works just fine with the code set as: Eterm -x --trans --buttonbar 0 --scrollbar=off http://www.usalug.com/xeroid/transparent.png thanks. :D
  6. Eterm

    What is the function of the -0 that comes after -x. In order to get this to work in SuSE 9.1 Pro I had to delete the -0 or Eterm would never launch. Mine looks like this: Eterm -x --trans --buttonbar 0 --scrollbar=off Thanks.
  7. For those of you that would like to try SuSE 9.1 there is a good FTP install guide here: http://usalug.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2891
  8. IntelliMouse Explorer USB

    I can probably help with the mousewheel. Take a look at this post: http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php?sho...topic=11524&hl= Pay close attention to the post by tyme near the bottom because I run SuSE which uses the etc/X11/XF86Config file while Mandrake uses the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file. The last time I ran Mandrake was 9.0 and I had a lot of problems with my M.S. USB wheel mouse not working half the time I booted. I set up my mouse using the PS2 adapter and have not had a problem since.
  9. How do I kill bad processes in Mandrake 9.2

    Another method is to do a ctrl / alt / esc. Your curser will change to the little skull and crossbones. Now you're lethal. :lol: Then you can just click on the title bar of totem.
  10. Mandrake 10 b2 PS/2 Wheel mouse doesn't work?

    Thanks for pointing that out tyme. I'm currently using SuSE 9.0 and it uses XF86Config. Mike :D
  11. Mandrake 10 b2 PS/2 Wheel mouse doesn't work?

    To get your mouse wheel to work in Linux, sometimes you must edit your etc/X11/XF86Config file. First part of the original XF86Config file that deals with the mouse operation: Look for the above part ^ ^ about half way down in your XF86Config file. You need to open the XF86Config file with a text editor like Kate in order to change it. And now the new edited part of the file: I have highlighted in red the parts of the file that needed to be added. Notice the IM that was added in front of PS/2? That is the part that frequently gets overlooked. :D
  12. NOVELL Rocks SCO !!

    Nah, that would just make Tux sick to his stomach.

    Below is a link to the letters that Novell sent SCO concerning UNIX copyright ownership and SCO's response: LINK > http://www.novell.com/news/press/archive/2...2003/12/sco.pdf You gotta love it! :lol:
  14. Knoppix Rules

    Knoppix is a very good resource for troubleshooting and performing a demo on Linux. Knoppix is also a painless way to install Debian, just install Knoppix to your HD. http://www.freenet.org.nz/misc/knoppix-install.html Also, congrats on your engagement, VeeDubb. :D
