Post Your Linux Screen Shot

Recommended Posts

I recently decided to retire my Epson C86 inkjet printer, the damn thing is too expensive to run. I went to our local Printer supply shop today and got a new unit. I'm happy with it; it works with my Linux boxes and my daughter's Macbook. It is a HP Laserjet P2015. :matrix:

Heh, I ordered another printer on-line, but, the rocket scientists sent me the wrong unit (a windows only model :wacko: ). I'll be sending the other unit back today or tomorrow when it arrives.

This is interesting:-) I did an install of Gnome Slackbuild on one of my Slackware 12.1 boxes last night. GSB integrates nicely into Slackware without messing up your installation. All my other desktop environments still work. It has a package manager:-) I used Gslapt to update the install this morning.

Edit: Added a day later:

Regarding Gnome Slackbuild: the jury is still out for me.

I've been running GSB now for 24 hours and I've encountered a bug or two. Sometimes when logging out or in using GDM the desktop crashes. Also, GDM doesn't play as nice with the other WMs as I initially thought it did.

I will go back to running Slackware only on this unit. This was a fun experiment:-)

I formatted my old Slackware 12.1 box on Monday, decided to give Debian Lenny another look.

Lenny is running surprisingly well on this ancient Plll 667 MHz IBM with 256 MB RAM. I'm still running Slackware 12.1 on my main work station:-)

Messing around with Hardy Heron...

I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 on one P4 at work. I am very impressed with Heron's ability to identify hardware. :thumbsup:

Slackware 12.1, running XFce 4.4.2

I took this shot at the Nitobe Memorial Garden in Vancouver, BC. This Zen garden is situated in my old alma mater, the University of British Columbia.

t has been awhile since I've run FreeBSD so I thought I'd try the latest offering from the stable branch. This is FreeBSD 7.0 running KDE 3.5.8. I'm liking KDE a lot again:-)

I set-up a dual boot with FreeBSD 7.0 on one of my Slackware 12.1 boxes.

It is all good.
