Re: Parcourir la planète

Bonjour François Manque d'assiduité ? Mais tu es tout pardonné, nous ne pouvons passer notre temps derière l'écran, même moi "qui n'ai plus rien à faire" :) Oui, ça fait du bien de se promener, mais en ce moment, avec les chasseurs, il faut mettre une vest jaune fluorescente + un gyrophare sur la tê...

Re: Failed GIMP installation

Thank you for your messages. I have followed lapetus' advice, carefully browsing all folders, finding where I had to store modules, tried as guest and quickly switched to root. I was successful in activating GIMP, Fotoxx, some good old games and even Opera, as root. When activating Opera I got a war...

Re: Failed GIMP installation

Hi ! Still troubling :%) Today I have started, to see that games I had downloaded and activated yesterday had disappeared from the menu, and GIMP was absent too :wall: Let's go back to the package manager and look for modules to activate. Browsing the file, I can see GIMP plus all dependencies :Yaho...

Re: Parcourir la planète

Bonjour François Je remonte le sujet. Une petite description de l'endroit où je vis. Ça s'appelle Prément un hameau dépendant de la commune de Gandelu dans le département de l'Aisne, grand puisque nous avons une frontière avec la Belgique, mais minuscule à côté du Canada ! Il ya a 31 ans que j'y vis...

Re: BIENVENUE: La communauté française se porte bien

Bonjour François Ça c'est vrai j'adore Linux, d'où le pseudo que je me suis fait :D Un ami m'en avait parlé en bien à une époque où ma plus grosse machine était un 386 DX, avec lecteur de disquettes et un disque de 60 mo, alors pas question d'installer et encore moins de surfer. Un jour j'ai lu un l...

Re: BIENVENUE: La communauté française se porte bien

Bonjour à tous ! J'ai rejoint la bande récemment après une deuxième installation de Porteus sur un disque séparé, la première m'avait zappé Mandriva. Porteus je l'ai connu grâce à un copain belge, Jean Marie, que j'ai connu sur son blog pcsaving.canalblog.com, avec qui j'échange parfois 10 messages ...

Re: New to Porteus but not to Linux

Thank you for tips and welcome ! Eventually the language and keyboard problems have been solved :Yahoo!: It took a certain time to understand that when I had located the lzm files I simply had to right click on one and look for the activate command ! After restart a part of menus were in French, for...

Re: New to Porteus but not to Linux

Thank you François, Wread, Slaxeee I see I am not a lonely French speaking member, but it is so strange to chat with French members in English !

Re: Poll: What's your (other) favorite distro(s)?

Hi ! I have answered Ubuntu, because it was simply the first distro to be able to connect to the web thanks to wifi. It was hard to give an answer, because in my workshop I have 5 computers all bred with Linux, a 2009 PC fitted with a 1 Tb disk where at least 10 distros are living, a server running ...

Hi ! I am Marc, 62 yo, retired, living in France. With the same pseudo I am also on Ubuntu, Mandriva, Mageia and Linux Questions forums. I have been looking for a special thread like "introduction", but there is none, so let's go. The existence of Porteus has been revealed by a Belgian friend who is...
