5/26    anyone use lxde?  supposedly it is less stupid than xfce and
        less bloated than gnome.  thoughts?
        \_ lol, does anyone still use desktop linux?  Get with the times
           buy a mac.  Now.  DO IT.  Go NOW.
           \_ but we prefer herring to Kool-Aid
              \_ "you have to yell, he's hard of herring"
        \_ I tried it, I think it uses less memory, hard to tell.
           I work with some nerd who uses xmonad
        \_ I have struggled for years with debian and ubuntu and centos
           with gnome and kde and fluxbox and whatever... work made me
           get a mac, I secretly admit that it is pretty cool.

5/5     Does anyone know how to do custom install of Ubuntu 10.04? I can't
        even boot it up to give me the menu to custom install and it
        keeps installing a bunch of crap I don't need. It's getting
        just as slow and bloated as Winblows install. Dear lord,
        I miss the old Ubuntu.

5/21    I would like to implement an auto-logout feature for my gnome users
        who happen to not log themselves out, thus causing me, and especially
        my supervisor, pain.  Please advise, cohorts.  I would like the
        entire gnome session signed out, not just an individual xterm,
        so "export TMOUT=[SECONDS]" in a .bashrc will not work.

7/20    I using Gnome/Ubuntu.  I would like to have it autologout after about
        30 minutes of use.  (Even if it's stil lbeing used.) Is there some way
        to do this?  (Sort of like what happens at the library.)
        \_ Sure. Write some code to kill the session after 30 minutes.

4/6     Is there something like this for Linux?
        \_ I haven't used it because I don't really run Linux on any of my
           desktop boxen, but I saw this a while back and thought it looked

10/20   My Gnome Desktop makes lots of noises at me.  I rarely know where
        they are coming from (filtered mail I don't see maybe?).  Is there
        some (way to set up a) sound log that I can check to see which app
        fired off which sound file at time X, or anything like that ?

8/24    When I use "screen", the scrollback bars on my xterm and gnome-term
        don't work anymore. Is it possible to make them work under screen?
        \_ They'll sort of work, but not really.  I mean you may have more than
           one window.  Just use screen's builtin scrollback; it's better
           anyway (you can have one per window, tens of thousands of lines and
           best of all it's searchable)  Just hit ^A-Escape then pretty much

7/13    help. using gnome suddenly my mouse stops working. I think it might
        be related to vmware. I'm able to switch over to a linux virtual
        terminal ... I killed the vmware processes ... but still no mouse.
        the mouse works in the virtual terminal. anything I can do besides
        restarting or restarting gnome? there is work in progress i'd
        rather not lose. thanks.

9/20    UCB professors win 3 (of 25) MacArthur prizes:
        \_ I've always been impressed by Berkeley'd research and the
           brilliant people behind the research. Too bad most of them
           don't seem to give a damn about teaching or helping undergrads.
           Funny that great researchers aren't always great teachers. My

6/23    Help!  I am trying to convince my collegues that Solairs 10 is not
        even close to be used as a desktop OS.  They've kept telling me that
        since it uses Gnome UI, it has the same usability as Linux.  How
        do I counter that?  So far, I can say:
        1. Linux has a lot more working device drivers
        2. Linux has a lot more consumer-oriented, multi-media applications
