What you want should be quite an easy setup, it's a live system runing from usb with some kind of kiosk application. Sounds pretty straightforward but why would you want to run it from a usb stick? Your choices will only be restricted distro-wise, and you could use various different live distro's ru...

I've also been wondering about the "inactivity" lately but I like to think that we've all reached some point where we don't need Void Main's help every 5 minutes anymore (although I mostly speak for myself here) :D One could also assume that linux as a whole is much more mature than it was 5 or 6 ye...

Try krandrtray, it has options to configure dual head setups. I know of two cases where dual heads were sucesfully configured with it under kde 4.1, with a little luck it might work for you. In my case I used krandrtray to get my screen resolution permanent because no matter how hard I edited xorg.c...

What version of KDE4 does Fedora ship with, is it 4.0 or 4.1?
I remember reading about problems with dual displays in KDE 4.0 but in 4.1 they shouldhave been fixed.
Did you use krandrtray to configure your desktop(s) or did you edit xorg.conf?

Well, I might sit it out a little longer, just heard from some people at Lenovo that they will ship their own 9" model by the end of september. No definitive specs yet but I've heard they should be more or less comparable to what already exists on the market and be like 20% cheaper even. I've been i...

Actually I have to use a laptop for work and I asked to switch from a 15.4" to a 12" because of the size. At home I have nothing but desktops but what appealed to me was the extreme portability and the extreme cheapness :P This baby takes 15 seconds to be fully operational and I very much like the i...

Acer Aspire One netbook

I've never been a big fan of notebooks because of the lack of flexibility inherent to the concept but I've been considering getting one of those new "netbooks" lately. I've had the chance to toy around for a few hours with the Acer Aspire One and I was really impressed! The machine comes preloaded w...

The one book that's been the most useful to me is "Linux in a nutshell" from O'Reilly. I always go back to that one whenever I have doubts about a particular command or syntax. Other than that it pretty much boils down to another O'Reilly publication "Learing the vi editor". I bought various other l...

Sorry can't help you with your Xfce problem Calum. :( Glad you like Sidux though, it's been a rock-solid install of the "unstable branch". On the iceweasel and iceape issue on the other hand I'm quite stumped because I've been using these for almost as long as I've been using Debian now and I never ...

If you can ssh from one box to the other and are using konqueror you can use the fish protocol from within the file browser (fish just being a graphical ssh session) fish://user@192.168.x.x and you can log into the other box, after that it's just a matter of drag & drop from one window to the other ...

Actually there was nothing wrong with the adapter because in another room it worked fine, it was that one particular room where none of the adapters would work ...

Weird, anyway it still works so I guess it's ok :?

Well I did as you mentioned and sure enough there was nothing suspicious in the logs. So I followed your other suggestion and grabbed my work laptop (I don't own one myself yet), switched off the proxy settings and plugged the network cable into the RJ45 port, couldn't get an ip ... I then took my D...

Ok, today I have no connectivity at all anymore. netstat -rn showed nothing but an empty routing table. So I configured it manually ifconfig -a 192.168.0.111 netmask 255.255.255.0 and then did route add default gw 192.168.0.1 (which is the address of my gateway) any ping attempt turns out to be a "d...

no more internet access

the strangest thing happened to my younger son's box. All of a sudden his internet connection stopped working. I figured it waould be just a matter of renewing the ip address but to my surprise eth0 still had an active ip address. I could ping the other pc's on the network, could access the router a...

Actually if it's not too late you might consider Sidux , it's based on Debian unstable (100% compatible because pure Debian sources are used, no ubuntu/kubuntu modified versions) and it's amazingly stable. :D I've been running it for a while now and it's tightly managed by a very active community, p...
