Nautilus file manager not runnning on Acer Aspire one

Posted 08-31-2010 at 07:53 PM by crossifixoms

I use an Acer Aspire One computer. I tried to install a software i think my Linpus Linus does not support. It didn't install but just there after, I couldn't open my other files, write a document or open a spreadsheet. Anytime I want to open any document, i get the message "Nautilus file Manager Not Running". I'm new to linux and i have absolutely no idea what to do. Please I need people to reply me with how I can resolve this issue. Thanks in advance.

Sometimes when I see someone watching an HD video with the embedded (*shudder*) Flash player on a website, I just want to say someting like, "Do you have any idea how many CPU cycles are being burned up just to play that video??".

If I want to watch a video on YouTube (or some other video-hosting website) that offers a higher vertical resolution than 480p, I use my fancy little DownloadHelper FF plugin and just download it. Then I can play it with GNOME MPlayer, which has...

Why are text input boxes so small for forums?

Posted 08-30-2010 at 05:50 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

I hate this.

It does not really matter which forum you go to, even Linux Questions is at fault here.

You go to type a post, and are provided with a pokey[1] small text box to do it in that is smaller than the Microsoft Windows EULA textbox above the 'I agree' button ( and that is small! ). Why? Just why? you're better off writing your post in a text editor such as Leafpad and then copying the text into the box.

Even on what is considered the smallest...
