Cherokee Unicode in Linux

Posted 12-07-2008 at 01:37 PM by Mol_Bolom

Since my last post on this....I spent quite a long time using sidux - which was excellent.

But I'm now back with Kubuntu, because the sidux lot, decided to use a different network configuration tool. Which I found out doesn't like my network card at all - there was a work round for it but it would only work with the live version of sidux, not the installed version.

And I only found that out as I managed to screw up when I got a new monitor and was trying to configure...
