Re: RSS Reading Tip

I come from the land of the H/PC, Windows CE and such. N810 is state-of-the-art compared to an H/PC :) so we're used to endless workarounds and slow browsing (Pocket Explorer 4.0, ugh)

RSS Reading Tip

Re: The Best Current N.I.T Deals on Ebay Thread...

A spot-on overview of N.I.T. vs ebay--many thanks.

Because sellers often don't understand what they have, and are more middle-men than "previous owners," I always communicate with them before a...

Re: cifs.ko for Easy Debian N8*0?

In Easy Debian, there are no modules at all in /lib/modules.

I scoured the forums but haven't come up with anything. As you say, we'll have to wait for the answer.

Re: cifs.ko for Easy Debian N8*0?

Wow. I thought that was for Diablo OS, not Easy Debian OS.

I already have cifs.ko in /lib/modules/2.6.21-omap1/extras

Do I start lxde, go to /lib/modules and paste the same cifs.ko there?

Re: OpenOffice Full Screen

Sorry--I may have mixed apples and oranges. The minus-fullscreenbutton is a feature within lxde, and that was what never worked. The ASUI/.xbindkeysrc workarounds are what saved the day.

Thank you for the tip. I do run ASUI and I put in the full screen command. It works, for example, with other open windows like xterm.
