I'd agree with Sector11 on this one. Take some time... Linux, computers, all that will be around for a while.
Besides, there will be all those boxes to move.  :)

Never mind... Thought there might be an easy was to avoid a duplication somewhere.

Restarted! Everything works.  ;D
RAM is at 10% with nothing else going on...
Now that I know it's there, it's great.
For a new user, I think ceni would look pretty intimidating.

Oh, and smxi also offered to install Libre Office. Maybe it can be folded into the post-install script?

Used @tlinsley's method, and it worked with no problems.
Lots of questions asked the network that I wouldn't like to go through each time I encountered a new wifi network, but it's working.
Using sudo apt-get remove to get rid of the gnome code, and restart.

Thanks, Jedi!
I'll try this when I get home tonight.
To be honest with you though, I'd be a lot more concerned if this system I'm running wasn't 64-bit. And older CPU with limited RAM and 32-bit, that's where you're going to see your system resources pinched. Here, I've got resources to burn! Be fun if I can make the same stuff work on my netbook running #!  :)

The Publisher file I tried got pretty jacked-up formatting-wise. Had the same experience using Draw to modify PDF's in the past. Still, it's early days for the beta, and you're still getting a lot more than the gibberish you used to get.  :-\

Got it installed and running as well.
I'll see if there aren't some MS Publisher documents at work to test compatibility tonight.
Thanks everybody.

You'll beat me to it, then...
Not at home, and doing this over the phone.  :-[
Ah, well...

VSIDO Discussions / Libre Office 4.0
« on: February 11, 2013, 12:52:01 AM »
Okay... I'm going to download and try the new Libre Office 4.0.
I don't' exactly know how (or why I need it) but if you're running Debian Sid, you might as well get the benefits of running bleeding-edge.
Any ideas before I go all "mad scientist" in an hour or two?

@VastOne;
Dude, this is a freakin' cool distro! Thank you for letting me play in the public park you created!  ;D
I just wish I could have edited //etc/apt/bing/bang/bong.floppythingy.txt with a few lines of code, but... um, no. Maybe someday.
