Homework

Posted 08-01-2008 at 09:05 PM by hendoc

I recently bought a Dell AIO 810, mostly for the scanner, as I had 30 and 40 year old pics I wanted to backup to CD. Unfortunately, I didn't do my preparatory homework. LQ and other forums told me that no one had ever made that model work with Linux. I boxed it up and took it back to WalMart. Well....... It seems that Dell put one serial number on the box and a totally different one on the unit. So here I am, arguing with the manager, who is looking at me like I am trying to pull some kind of scam...

Has anyone found a decent word processor yet?

Posted 08-01-2008 at 07:06 PM by zaivala

I've been trying to use the available WP programs, in my work as a professional editor. They don't work. They don't hold formats and even change fonts and font sizes, just from opening a Word document and then saving it again... didn't change anything, but it changed anyhow. I have tried OpenOffice.org (latest version, and yes, I have an official and "stable" copy), AbiWord, and a few others. I can't find an old copy of WordPerfect for Linux, but in the last version it would not edit...

YABlog

Yet Another Blog?

Well, I may as well say a few things about myself, I guess.

1. I've been using Linux for about 8 years now, unless I'm remembering entirely wrong (and this is possible, as my concept of time is terrible). I don't know how, but I haven't even touched a computer with Windows on it in almost 4 years. Working at Lowe's a couple of years helped with that (they use Linux on every terminal).

2. My favorite distribution is Arch, and I love KDEmod....
