    Danke, Werner.

    This article reasonably intelligible in English using Chromium web browser.
    Chromium available via Synaptic, but this first needs a reload to update dependencies.

    More on Google-Translate

    .
    Just added Google-Translate to IceWeasel 10 and it works just fine.
    As a bonus, Firefox 19 works as well. The only difference between
    the Mozillas and Chromium seems to be that for the Mozillas,
    you need to click Tools>Translate, whereas Chromium does it
    automatically.

    If you are following this saga, the article in Werner's post #1
    makes an excellent test case.

    Knoppix 7.1 public version ?

    Hello,
    When is the Knoppix 7.1 public version supposed to be released ?
    I cannot get my hands on the Cebit version.
    The US version of Linux Pro Magazine is different and does not include Knoppix 7.1
    and the EU version of Linux Magazin does not ship to the US.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    PS: http://www.linux-magazin.de/Ausgaben (EU version)
    http://www.linuxpromagazine.com/Issues/2013 (US version)

    Greetings, Ruymbeke.

    In regard to 7.1 community distro,
    there was (at least) a small problem with PCManFM that Klaus K was grappling with.
    I think he was hoping to resolve this with some juggling of libraries.

    3D support for Knoppix CeBIT 7.1.0 as a VMware virtual machine guest.

    Hello,
    If you are interested in trying Knoppix CeBIT 7.1.0 within a VMware virtual machine guest
    you may consider using using this vm which allows Knoppix to recognize the graphical hardware
    acceleration and 3D rendering provided by VMware and use the compiz 3D effects (as the cube):

    Please provide some feedback.
    Best Regards,
    Gilles

    Did you find a copy of 7.1 to enable you to do this? I have the same problem in the UK. The mag here did not have the version 7.1.

    Hi ICPUG,
    Yes I bought the Linux Magazin (EU version) via the web and had it shipped to my brother in Switzerland.
    Cheers,
    Gilles
