    Hi,

    Continuing the last week saga - gOS, now openGEU, in two weeks Wolvix.

    openGEU is another fine distro; Ubuntu-based, simple and easy, running the lean and beautiful Enlightenment desktop. It has everything one might need, plus more.

    Do take a look:

    Comments and suggestions are welcome!

    Cheers,
    Mrk

    P.S. I'm close to bleeding my bandwidth off, so I'm working on getting some more juice, but remember I wrote this in case dedoimedo.com gets off the air, which I hope will never happen ...

    Hello,
    Indeed. I just hope they answer quickly, otherwise I'll have to move to my bro's account - he's got some 2TB monthly ...

    Hello,
    Have they come up with a way to put different wallpaper on each cube side with icons for Ubuntu 7.10 yet? All the present solutions that I know of eventually lead to dead ends.

    Do you think that they will have it in the coming Ubuntu revision?

    I will look into it again-

    But in the past the required libraries for the patched Nautilus and Eel packages could never be found.

    @MrK; yes nice desktop and as you say: quick
    Easy installer
    I do like the graphics
    The screen resolution would not adjust in vm 'till tools installed.

    FOr anyone interested in trying a vm: right click the system bar at the "top" of the screen for other placement options

    One issue for me with the default is the Thunar: unless I've mixed some configs; the "properties" option does not give the full path ?
    Any other recommends re file manager?

    For the perrennial noof: this makes cut and paste into Terminals a pain :cautious:

    What happened top your VMWare tools install pages?
    Cant see them.

    Ok
    That'll do
    I had thought there were some other pages in the other installation tutorials
    Tell me you've changed the pages :doubt: and I'm not having more frequent senior moments.
    Regards
    Looking forward to what you think of Wolven's distro.

    I like xfce and so gave Sam a run: couldn't get some FF extensions set-up but probably some tweak somewhere dont know about.

    regards.

    Hello,
    I don't think I've made any major change ... could be a senior moment.
    I've made small cosmetic changes, but nothing too drastic...
