    New GTK 2 bug? Theme changes randomly

    Doesn't work (or yet, doesn't fix the misbehavior).

    Also, it can't set different themes for GTK2 and 3. If QtCurve (GTK2) is set, GTK3 defaults to Adwaita, overriding the settings configured elsewhere.

    [solved] HTML5 Youtube with no video on Firefox/Iceweasel, in Debian testing/Stretch

    It's still possible to activate the gstreamer-related thing on firefox and have HTML5 video working on youtube. But you got to uninstall some gstreamer-related packages. I don't remember which ones I've uninstalled, but my list of installed gstreamer-related things is:

    gstreamer-codec-install
    gstreamer-tools
    gstreamer0.10-alsa:amd64
    gstreamer0.10-audiosink

    I've just started trying xsettingsd to see if it fixes it.

    Awk line to convert [HH]:MM:SS to seconds

    Funnily enough, if it's just a single number without ":", it takes it as hours.

    The input can have no seconds as long as it's at least "[M]M:[0]0" -- or even just "M:".

    unetbootin is the worst!

    i always dd hybrids

    i have my own tool i really use instead of dd (a wee bit faster and simpler to use) and way back a script that made working hybrids from non-hybrid Ubuntu ISOs.

    Even then, when I tried creating a bootable usb with the latest Debian live 8.1, it will not run the live gui, only the graphical install.
    If that is the only "problem", then there is nothing to complain about. The only difference between the graphical and GUI installers is the latter uses the mouse. Although I have read reports from many people having unbootable systems after using Unetbootin. Hence why most people recommend not using it. Face it, not all tools are of high quality.

    Debian live nonfree boots to console login? Why?!

    Maybe I like to complain, you don't have to read it.

    If you actually want help, post a question on the forum. Bitching on a blog will not solve your problem.

    Debian uses all free software and leaves the proprietary installs up to the individual user.

    Not a pissing contest. It is what it is.

    I've had the opposite luck as I never use Windows except to tune motorcycles. But I have mtools and p7zip-full installed.

    I dd hybrid isos with no problemo also.

    Oh Well. I guess YMMV from mine.

    I've been pxe-booting isos for years now because of frustrations like this.

    No linux tool has ever worked for me when trying to create a bootable usb drive. That is 2 versions of debian, one or two versions of redhat, 2 different laptops and 3 different desktops.

    The same tool usually works when I use the windows version.

    I just can't stand it when all these websites tell you that it will, until you realize they were just looking for clicks on their page.

    Annoying, like really!

    The install went with a few hickups, but X starts OK. Probably has to do with the fact that my vid card is an nvidia nvs 3100m. It seems to me that Debian is in a pissing contest with all people that don't agree with them.

    It seems likely that this KDE version simply is failing to run for some reason, not "on purpose".

    You have better odds of having some help with that on the actual forums. But start by trying to look for error messages and Xorg-related log files, that's probably what anyone would ask to start with, unless it happens to be some well-known bug.

    I'm not really interested in trying to argue in defense of it, but the only problem I recall having had was that for some reason, some of the default distro options wouldn't work, I'd need to download the iso. I've only used the Debian version, usually from Debian testing, but at different releases of testing.

    That and that in a given laptop I seldom could boot anything from an USB stick written on it, but I really didn't compare with other alternatives and it's probably at least partly fault of the laptop as well, if not exclusively.

    But it wasn't like I really used it that regularly anyway.

    And now that I think better I think a few times it would give me some grub menu options that would end up in just a blinking CLI cursor, but I guess it was related with particular distro choice(s).



    I didn't even know of these alternatives, thanks, I'm going to check them out.

    Another Pointless Endeavour

    I would not want to ride a bicycle here: 100F and very humid. Peddling a bicycle would be most uncomfortable. Riding the scooter is nice though. Wonderful breeze!

    You should have told her Windows 10 is a pointless endeavour and pretended to be drunk.
