    Linux Set up of Lenovo T480 laptop

    I decided to keep one laptop for Win10 and the LenovoT480 for Manjaro. No problems with the Lenovo T480 or Manjaro. To give Gramps a chance I loaded it on Manjaro and played around with it for a week. After the GEDCOM import to Gramps, it took me a while to clean up the database. The process is...

    Linux Cloud Storage

    What are your suggestions for personal Cloud storage? Cloud storage includes Manjaro and LibreOffice backups. Desktop app and Sync capabilities would be a bonus.

    Linux Set up of Lenovo T480 laptop

    I tried dual booting & did not like it. I prefer a computer that is dedicated to an operating system. Having a desktop for Win10 suits my needs. Linux has come a long way since I was using it in the 1990s. Today, I like the GUI (gnome) but still, use the command line for installing packages and...

    Linux Set up of Lenovo T480 laptop

    I finally received my Lenovo T480 laptop. I believed the laptop was coming from Lenovo Canada in Markham, Ontario. I was surprized it came from China.

    Thanks for the reply. I read thru the XenForo manual they do refer to a Display Order. The manual is not detailed enough to provide a suitable explanation. Oh well, I will continue to scroll thru the messages until I find the last one posted.

    After 90 days of study, I am still learning but not sure what size USB drives to get

    Timeshift saved me. I did a complete restore after messing up Linux Mint. I seldom make this mistake. I thought I was in VirtualBox however, I was not. The last Timeshift backup saved my data.
