Picasa for Linux 3.0, was very good [nothing is perfect]
features I like
1) the ability to scroll through the file tree, without opening & closing folders
2) an editor that crops, resizes, minor color adjustment...
3) uploader to G+ webalbum

I'm on Digikam [KDE ], which is overkill, but the uploader is perfect, not so much as a hiccup even for, 100's of pics at a time.

Seems I haven't spent enough time on xcfe,  I'll have another go.
What about a recommendations for a 32bit deb distro
Debian proper, is easy enough to install, but then nothing works, without jumpping through my own arse,  seems like everything else has that nasty ubuntu-taste :D

I haven't quite figured out a way to fix the hinge on the only 64 bit machine I own
A HP notebook
We replaced with android tab

What about workspaces?
I'm using KDE just so I can have workspaces
As we all know it's a resource hog

Which image file program?
I've been adrift since picasa for linux bit the big one, I have no interest in dicking around endlessly with wine
The feature I miss the most is the ability to scroll through all the files, without having to open folders
I'm using Digikam, which has all the toys of gimp in a user-friendly format, but not in a  resource friendly way.  I need crop, resize, exposure, contrast, color & a way to upload to G+
Digikam does this better than any other, uploads of 100or more goes without a hitch

my isp is my phone company, I'm set up so I can have the modem either place
the phone line is fine, brand new wire from their box
the present modem location is ideal as it gives me better wifi coverage

were I able to determine which wire or pair is bad on the questionable cable, I could substitute a pair from the phone cable...

I've confirmed that the ports all work, on 2 different computers, one close, one far
A simple tester is continuity

Which is good with a regular ohm meter
Really doesn't mean much @ 100mhz

I have 3 Cat5e cables running from my house to an out building
1 working
1 not fully working
1 for a couple of phonelines

I pull in a new cable, but it wouldn't be fun...
The problem presented after a power outage, storm

I suspect. Low signal from the modem/router, which is from the isp

Cat5e is good for 100 meters/yards
How much do I subtract for each connection[rj45 punchdown]?
Any ways to determine signal strength?

I have 2 lines that run 50+ yards
One stopped working
I don't find an open with an ohm meter
One line is fine, on the other
I have a connection indication, but no internet

I really don't want to have to use a terminal /text  editor to do set up stuff
I get open box/xfce
That being said
I do have a 64 bit lappy without a hdd to play around with

The community, looks fine, no tyrants in evidence.  :D

Looking at vsido as noob, I haven't found much about how many hoops I'll have to jump through to do everyday tasks?
I need a new community
I'm using mageia, but I've torqued off, one of the principle workhorses on the forum
While it's nice that one can go to the cli & fuss around with the guts, give me a GUI thank you very much...
