Hi!I've been using linux for around 8 years (mostly ubuntu). Recently I've been using windows just because I got a new computer and I didn't feel like installing a new OS since windows was working fine.
Got a new (for moi) EeePC 901 and already installed the latest Waldorf via last month's Waldorf update post.This netbook has 1 1.6GHz CPU, 2 GB RAM, a 4 GB hd, and a 16 GB hd.To be used for some webdev, lite-apps dev, constant apt-get update'ing , and a few standard apps (LO, Iceweasel, Chrome, GIMP, VLC, ...etc).Wondering how I could best optimize the current installation or re-install
Actually if you use few addons/extensions with the Fox, even the most popular (they are updated regularly), you are almost always good to go, the rapid release cycle never affected me personally in a negative way.
Following the recent WWW browser discussion (thank you again to everyone who took the time provide constructive comments) I have been looking at options for providing an up-to-date version of Firefox/Iceweasel for the Waldorf release. To this end, I have been playing around with the Linux Mint solution of packaging the official Mozilla binaries.
My question basically pertains to running firefox from the repo vs running it from /opt. What I usually do is download firefox from mozilla ftp, extract, move to /opt, set symlink to plugins, and then edit /usr/shar/applications/firefox.destop, then save with new name.
I don't currently use #!, but I am certainly impressed by the lightweight software that's being developed by some of the users here. I'll try to help out as much as I can with this, so you'll mostly see me hanging around in the tips, tricks, and scripts section. And hello #! community!
