    @Werner P. Schulz
    I'm not sure what you mean by outdated Knoppix version? Knoppix 7.4.2 is outdated? Or you mean the 5.3.1?
    Anyway, my old remaster of 5.3.1 will still be used until judgment day,...

    Big big nightmare

    OK, after a whole lot of pain, I realized Direct 3D will not work from a virtual machine, no matter what kind of machine that is.

    But the next step I wanted to take was to try and have a same...

    Yes, I noticed that too today, when I decided to try out this "VirtualBox" thing.

    I first tried it with a kernel rebuilt by me in 7.4.2. Didn't work.
    Then I tried it with the original kernel...
  4. 7.4.2 - KDE fine tuning - windows border and snap

    In Knoppix 7.4.2, I personally use LXDE as a session manager, with pcmanfm as desktop manager and Kwin as window manager (instead of the default metacity).

    Because of that, I eventually noticed a...

    I tried and found a fix for this issue because even if some users don't want icons on their desktops, a few icons on it are always useful.
    I'm not a fan of truckloads of icons on desktop either. But...
  6. Updated patch

    Lately I realized I needed more horizontal space for longer lines of text under icons.
    That's because I started using longer volume labels for partitions and they show up in the device icons on my...
  7. 7.4.2 - Kernel recompilation script / method - what worked for me

    Since 2.6.39 (the last kernel I successfully built and included in my K5.3.1 remaster) a lot of things changed.
    Back then I still built the cloop and aufs modules separately, whereas now (K7.4.2) I...
  8. 7.4.2 - Desktop icon spacing in LXDE - Are you kidding???

    By now someone should have noticed (if they really need to make a usable OS out of 7.4.2) that the desktop icon spacing in LXDE is completely out of whack!
    If you plan on using this desktop manager...

    In the meantime I noticed the patch I posted doesn't take care of the status bar info.
    So I'm attaching here a revised patch that does that too.
    Also, here's a script that takes care of everything....

    By the way, my preference for now is to use LXDE, but not with Metacity as a window manager.
    I use Kwin (I modified the entry in /home/knoppix/.config/lxsession/LXDE/{config,desktop.conf}).
    And...

    OK, look, honestly, I understand and agree with what you're saying. I also understand the programmer's point of view.
    It's not that I want to taunt the programmer now by doing the exact opposite of...

    Wow! Stunning! I had no idea they introduced this feature! It wasn't there in mc-4.6.2!

    I just tested it and it doesn't work there.
    They must have added it afterwards, but I was just assumimg...
  13. 7.4.2 - Have you ever wanted a BS-free time format in mc?

    Ever since 2008 when I started using Knoppix 5.3.1 (heavily remastered) I was stunned by the really obfuscating style of displaying access/modify/change time for files in mc.

    Simply looking at the...

    I don't know about that, but I think there are millions out there much more skilled than me.
    All I do is put my mind on something and not quitting until I find the way through.
    I only know enough...

    OK, but look, here we are, users of Knoppix, which is basically a Live Linux Environment. I don't know about you, but my reasons to make this my one and only OS (after heavy remastering) was...
  16. 7.4.2 - KDE brain damage fixes - ep.2 - file size in Konqueror, say what??

    This episode will deal with another "IQ enhancing" feature in today's software, namely konqueror's New Age of Dumbness style of displaying file sizes.

    Ever since 2008, I got used with my konqueror...

    Hm, "error"?? Well guess what, this "error" has been there at least since version 5.22. If this was a true "error", the almighty copyright owner would have fixed it by now, wouldn't he? What I see is...
  18. 7.4.2 - KDE brain damage fixes - ep.1 - Xscreensaver by Bill Gates

    The last time I did a Knoppix remaster was in 2008 when I performed a full brain transplant on Knoppix 5.3.1. I called it Electronnix.
    I stuffed it with pretty much everything ever crossed my mind,...
