skypeforlinux popup

I have installed skypeforlinux with usm. I used it and it goes fine. I have removed the module, but the program is still popping up at each bootup.

What could I do?

A laptop with a graphic card to compute vectors

Maxence, my son, plays once and a while. But not so much. He prefers litterature and socializing, not on networks like when he was a kid, but with real friends. And maybe with a beer... ... or two. :)

I am really proud of my son. :Rose:

New Slax is Coming !

Just some impression for now with the palemoon browser based on cpu values and memory. However, mpv with smplayer seem to take more cpu and memory under slax.

Edit:
No benchmark at all. Bananas have to be compared to bananas. My porteus system has a lot of additional packages.

desktop environment with plank xcompmgr nemesis artix based : a possible configuration

Also, recently, I got some freezing issues with plank. The icon theme could be set with lxappearance (added to module 1). But I had to add tweaking of gdk-pixbuf and shared-mime-info: openrc the system behind nemesis: printing as an example gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/l...

desktop environment with plank xcompmgr nemesis artix based : a possible configuration

It will please me to do so. However, I have been implementing the different parts progressively. I have old modules and newer ones, with different up-to-date arch systems. This will come somewhere towards new year. I did not work with bundles. So I am stuck with hundreds of small modules classified ...

New Slax is Coming !

Using alternatively with my porteus40 and nemesis-artix plank DE, slax is doing a better job on the performance side. There seems to be something to be understood and learned here. B)

[How to] manually upgrade 3.5 base modules

Hello jack. You can work with ncmprhnsbl's base module from now on. Changing the base module once you are installed is a possibility and will not break your system, usually will just more make it more performant. Same thing for changing for a new kernel. In any cases, it is very easy to revert to ol...

low ressource computer: your setup to maximize your box

I am now with nemesis-artix plank desktop with a few xfce4 components. Everything works really fine, except when I open the browser. I have tried your [porteus ~]# sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.d/99-sysctl.conf <<-EOF > vm.swappiness=10 > vm.vfs_cache_pressure=50 > EOF vm.swappiness=10 vm.vfs_cache_pressu...

In fact, a friend of his a computer science engeneer told him that a graphic card is able to compute some mathematical equations involved with mathematical vectors. My son and his collegue are master level students. They are not neophytes. Acer Predator Helios 300 (15-Inch screen) has CPU Intel i7 a...

A script to convert arch packages into nemesis modules. For example to convert brscan4-0.4.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz into brscan4-0.4.2-1-x86_64.pkg.xzm.

A laptop with a graphic card to compute vectors

I did that in the last month and searched for a few days. Maybe Ed could give me the brand of his laptop. :)
