LFA build 140817, 14.04.1, 64 bit, with Unity (Ubuntu) and three other Desktop Environments

LFA (Linux for All) is a remaster of Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS, codenamed Trusty Tahr, released July 25, 2014. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE, Razor-qt and XBMC (An award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media) as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different four Desktop Environments. The system language is English.

Topics I am sick of.

Posted 08-16-2014 at 10:08 PM by Randicus Draco Albus

Excuse me, but time to rant.
Two things I am SICK of seeing on fora everywhere are:
Questions and pleas for help about Wine.
Pleas for help to dual-boot a Linux system with Windows.

Although I almost always ignore any thread concerning those two topics, the shear number of them, everywhere on the internet, has driven me to the point of being sickened by the sight of those titles. Either install and use something else or continue using Windows. Too simple for many people...

Due to a 'phone line fault, I (and others in this area) have been without internet and landline 'phone for about a week. Shut off from civilisation. Thrown back into the Dark Ages. Anyway, it's fixed now, just before the withdrawal symptoms were getting unbearable.

A new version of ExTiX Light 14.1.2 64 bit is ready!

Posted 08-15-2014 at 03:29 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I've made a new version of the lighter version of ExTiX. It uses Razor-qt as Desktop Environment, Slim as Login Manager and kernel 3.16.0-7-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s stable kernel 3.16, released 140803. (Razor-qt is an advanced, easy-to-use, and fast desktop environment based on Qt technologies. It has been tailored for users who value simplicity, speed, and an intuitive interface). My info/instructions also apply to ExTiX Light. I.e. just log in as root (with password root) or extix (with...

Have not posted in a long time

Posted 08-14-2014 at 11:02 AM by MystikMitch

Hi,

I have not posted to my Blog I have been busy with things. After about many many years I am loosing interest in computing. I'm going to be also changing/removing some services like Internet, Phone to less costly. Even though that is hard to find just got to use less to meet the metered/costly situation in my country until Google Fiber reaches me. As long as it does not impact my work I'll be fine with more limited for now.
