Will try what you said, and report back. :)

That's easy.
 If a development team are too lazy to reply to a problem a user of its OS his having, then the
Solution would be :-
 
1. Leave that OS (nice thing about Linux is there's another one not to far away)
2. Don't donate any more money to a project where no help is provided.
3. Stay clear of people who have negativity in regards to its user base.

Uhm, I don't think that developers have any obligation towards a user - after all, what is one single user? And I think they have too much work to be "lazy". We should be thankful to them for having given us (the world) another Linux distro that looks and works nice. Just my thoughts :)

We'll certainly try when/where we can, but anything you can do to "help us help you" saves both of us time and is liable to hasten any resolution :)

[EDIT]

Also please remember this forum is not only for 1:1 assistance it's also meant to be a SEARCHABLE reference for EVERYONE (who may be looking for the same issue/resolution), text in screenshots (or videos) is not indexable (either by the forum search feature or Google) so will not be returned in any search query ;)

I am still running Windows (that being Vista, and yes, Windows Vista runs fine). And now and then I end up at the Microsoft Windows forums.

You get these "MVP's", as they are called, that are "exceptional, independent community leaders who share their passion, technical expertise, and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others" and who "actively share their ... technical expertise with the different technology communities related directly or indirectly to Microsoft", rotfl.

I often find the "solutions" (note my quotation marks) hilarious, because they are simply useless

(It is also possible that their answers are so "low-level", because either Windows or Windows users are "low-level" people, and I hope there are no Windows users here that I may offend now).

It looks to me that many experienced Linux users (and I am not one of those) at messageboards and blogs know more about Linux, than those "MVP's" know about Windows. /rolleyes

Hi Skara Brae, a lot of the time us Linux users appear to have a greater depth of knowledge for simple reasons.  The Linux desktop is less complicated to manage.  It's more logical and elegant in its structure.  It's Open source, there's nothing hidden from anyone.  It also allows greater experimentation in comparison to Windows.  Window is only superficially easier to operate than Linux based systems.
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!
