Distributions / Re: How is KDE Neon as a Desktop?
« Last Post by fox on Today at 07:12:34 am »
You KDE fans and those of you trying it out, see this article on the latest version (in beta). What caught my attention is faster startup, but there are other new features of value.

Support / Re: Force a change in a default application (Ubuntu gnome)
« Last Post by fox on Today at 07:08:30 am »
I've had a few communications about this with two helpful individuals on the Ubuntu forums (here), but no resolution. Installing Softmaker FreeOffice locks your application preference to its programs for any application it can open and the only way to solve this is to either install it on a portable device or uninstall it. No matter how good it is, that's a dealbreaker for me. However, I also have a thread on this in Softmaker's forums. Maybe they will have a solution. I haven't got a response yet, but it's the long weekend.

Doesn't Gnome also have a Default Applications area in settings or elsewhere? Try doing a search for it those words.

I gave up when I found I couldn't figure out much in Gnome, especially how to get a single click mouse to open things. Just noting, that for me, nothing in Gnome felt 'intuitive'.

I would not be able to attend on Monday, but would very likely attend if it were held on Wednesday.

Oh, okay. Thought he/she used a different option than what you did (using properties). That's a pretty annoying bug, if it is a bug, and not something they intentionally designed.

Unfortunately not. That poster was using the same procedure that I was to select the default application. He/she was able to change that default, whereas I cannot. The poster's issue had to do with what icons appear after changing his default to LibreOffice (which would also be annoying). But I can't change the default application at all, and I had the same problem with Softmaker Office 2016 (which Softmaker was making gratis to educators).

Monday is good for me, too. And Wednesday would be ok, too if somebody prefers that. 7 pm, I assume?

I could come if it's Monday night. If more folks prefer Wednesday like last week, let us know by posting. I could come Wednesday night as well.
