VSIDO Discussions / Desktop magic - cube
« on: September 01, 2014, 01:19:12 PM »
Greetings all,
I was wondering if anyone had a pointer to a HOW-TO document that would get that whole DESKTOP CUBE feature working on VSIDO.
It does not matter what flavor (compiz, KDE, or other) as long as it looks and works. 
I have absolutely NO REAL NEED for it: I just want to impress the pants off of my 'Windows Centric' co-workers.  A google search landed nothing but Ubuntu documents, that do not apply to any sane/other distribution.

(If there IS no such document, good advice is ALWAYS welcome!) 

General Support / apt-get suddenly hates my laptop
« on: August 15, 2014, 11:31:06 AM »
Everything has been going fine for the last three months, when suddently, just today..
apt-get dist-upgrade wants to remove all of xorg and uninstall every kernel.  This would, obviously, render my laptop unbootable.

Does anyone know what is going on?  Are the Repos broken? 

General Support / linux-image-3.14-1-686-pae boot

Within the last few days there was an update to the kernel image, and I stopped being able to reboot.
It looks as if the drive is not recognized, the error indicates that the UUID was not found.  Odd, since the UUID repoorted is correct, and works fine with all earlier kernels.  In fact it worked with earlier 3.14 kernels!

This is an old HP laptop, but I think that unlikley to be significant.  Not looking for cause or troubleshooting at this point, or I would post a small library of diagnotics.  Just wondering if anyone else has encountered this.  Have you?
