Poor, but acceptable, work-around to the lack of image previews for XCF and ORA (maybe other formats as well)

Apparently there isn't much system-wide preview support for formats such as XCF and ORA. It used to be better at some point, at least when KDE was mostly QT4, at some point I had fancy thumbnail previews of everything. Everything! Gwenview apparently was also at some point able to preview ORA and maybe the others, but I've never seen that.

So, unfortunately I'm not a programmer or anything, so I can only look for poor man's solutions like a script that converts such files into more...

Install RaspAnd Marshmallow 6.0.1 in Windows 10/8 very easy using Win32 Disk Imager!

NEWS 160917 about RaspAnd Marshmallow 6.0.1 and Win32 Disk Imager
It is now possible to install RaspAnd Marshmallow Build 160915 to a Micro SD card (preferable a class 10 card) in Windows 10. I have finally (after many months) “discovered” how to make an image file of all four (4) partitions needed to run RaspAnd. I.e. system, boot, cache and data. Just download the ZIP-file raspand-marshmallow-6.0.1-gapps-install-win32diskimager-622mb-160915.zip and unzip it with 7-Zip. Then download Win32 Disk Imager...

Gnuplot aborts Ubuntu 16.04 LTS upgrade installer

Posted 09-16-2016 at 01:02 PM by flshope

A week ago I decided to proceed with the upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to 16.04 LTS. I always dread having to do these upgrades because it always means trouble, and this one was no exception.

As instructed by the release notes

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes

I started from the Update Manager, which offers the LTS upgrade once it has been made available three or four months after the initial release in April. I have made it a practice...
