Well if you do not count playing poker on PokerStars I have not gamed since running Links on a Wintel platform a very long time ago.    I really enjoyed that game.  I would be interested in a golf game for Linux.  Has anyone found one similar to Links?

  I love Linux
Posted by: King_Solomon - 08-30-2019, 09:46 AM - Forum: EzeeLinux Community Commons - Replies (7)

I started to use Ubuntu around 2 years ago just for curiosity. I heard about it but never checked what really it was.
I tried to install it on my old little HP laptop.
And everything went well without glitches. I hear a lot on web people struggling with issues on installations and never understand why. I installed until now to my other computers at home Linux (Ubuntu and Mint) and never had real problems. I just install with standard options without messing around with special/advanced options. Just click "continue"...OK...OK...OK...done. Everything works fine.
I found in Linux more than a new (for me at least) kind of operating system and I am not a computer scientist. If realized, entered, encountered the world FOSS which was new for me.
I find this notion of FOSS beautiful. For me it is the first reason why I use Linux. I think it is some kind of altruism that is rare in our world. To open and share your hard work with others...? Normally nobody wants to give/share freely other people things...
And in fact I am even a little afraid that Linux expands (maybe strange) because if so, more egoistic (bad intentions) forces will be blended (such as money interests, corporations etc). I don't care personally that the community is not huge...
I love the fact that sometimes I need to struggle with technical things, searching reasons, clicking commands (that I don't understand), finding really caring people who help you in forums.
Every time I see answers with crazy commands, I tell (and laugh) myself "How the hell this guy knows these commands!!". I just remember a few simple commands: sudo, ls, cd, ...Many times I don't even understand the questions (of others). For example: "how-to-rebuild-the-dockerfile-for-kubernetes-dashboard" (from Ask Ubuntu). What the hell is "dockerfile", what is "kubernetes", what is "dashboard" and what is "to rebuild"?! I really love this community...They know every damn question!
In Windows, for every question you get the same answer: install updates, reboot, etc. nothing works and no answers.
That said, I have critics about things. As a standard (previously Windows) user I found very difficult to understand installations and updates. I struggled a lot with these.
Say today, I wanted to add to some picture an arrow. In Windows Paint I can do it quickly. It is the most simple and useful software that I use. Here I opened Gimp and tried to find where was the draw an arrow button? I couldn't find it. There are billions of buttons and options but I couldn't see this simple option.
Anyway...I really love Linux...

  [Solved] Transfer Thunderbird to new machine
Posted by: Cymri - 08-30-2019, 03:02 AM - Forum: Linux Tips & Tricks - Replies (3)

(Solved)... Joe mentioned in one of his videos how to copy a file from your existing Thunderbird and paste it into a new machine to get Thunderbird configured the same, but I can't find that video now. Can someone give me the name of the vid , or a link to it, please? Or just tell me how to transfer my old profile/settings to a new machine?  Thanks.

  Noob Release Question
Posted by: John Swisher - 08-29-2019, 09:21 PM - Forum: EzeeLinux Community Commons - Replies (2)

After researching distributions, I have decided to use Ubuntu Mate. My question is would it be better to use 18.04.3 or 19.04?  
Hardware:
Lenovo B570, B950 Pentium (2.1ghz, 2c/2t), 8gb DDR3L 1600(2x4), 250gb SSD.

It will be a stand alone system as I have my W10 on a separate machine. Any and all comments, suggestions, tips and tricks will be appreciated.  Decades ago used RedHat before I got Windosed with 3.1/11 through w10 19.03. So basically starting fresh.

  HP Envy dual boot
Posted by: TenMM - 08-29-2019, 07:51 PM - Forum: Mint - Replies (2)

I added Linux Mint 19.2 to my HP ENVY running windows 10 laptop. I have to hit the escape at startup to get into the boot loader so I can choose Linux Mint. This is the first time I have ever had to do this, my last HP laptop I loaded Ubuntu on it and the boot loader came up on it's own and it was running windows 10 as well. What did I do wrong? Before I get flak, I have to use windows for my employment, but I love Linux.
