Forgot that bit! I was seriously lacking caffeine this morning  :D

Coffee is a lovely drug, isn't it ?   ;D

Only thing that keeps me going!

Good lord! I just had to look up monitors that size to fully wrap my head around those dimensions. My TV isn't even that fracking big!
Can I come over and play video games sometime? :P

LOL anytime I am at home if you are nr North West Kent in the United Kingdom.  Altho bring your own games as I am not a gamer  :D

Well, that's going to be a bit more of a soggy trek than I was expecting, but I'll bring over my Steam password! Canada to the UK should be what... A week's swim? :P

Its been a while since I loaded up GIMP, so here's something I threw together for practice. Its not the greatest, but I'm a little rusty...

Yeah bring 'em on.  It's always nice to see other people's work  8).  Before you post any, please read the forum rules for submitting artwork: Board Rules Concerning Screenshot Posting.  I think we'll all be looking forward to seeing what you've done  ;)!

I'll throw some up as soon as I'm done playing around with Conky!

I should've known how to check that... Now I feel like an idiot a little bit...

I think we did it! I used a different plugin, but it seems to be working perfectly now! You, my friend, are my hero!

Thanks guys!

It took me a little to figure it out at first myself, as I learned editing software from PS, but when you open an image to resize it, there should be a button that looks like a few links in a chain off on the right (usually beside the image size or resolution bars). By default, they look like they're seperated. If you click it, that locks the aspect ratio in place, and you can resize away. Alternatively, there should be options in the Peppermint Settings Panel. Try automatic, or zoomed fill.
It also looks like you're using a crazy widescreen display. Do you know your aspect ratio off the top of your head? I usually make packs of wallpapers with different sizes/ratios, so I can make some of those up for Peppermint.

I'll make a thread with a bunch of the ones I've made, but they're usually non-OS specific. Movies, music, games, and that sort of thing... Here's one of my personal favourites that other people seem to love just as much!

Ohh! I like those! Especially the first one!

Okay, I've been messing around on YouTube for a while, and it seems to be working fine... Until I full screen a video, at which point it goes back to the laggy/wonky video.
Its happening with standard definition, and high-def videos.
I'm not sure whether the videos are running in flash or HTML5. I just go to YouTube.com, and try to watch them.

It wasn't tearing per se, but doing this weird thing where the video would stop for a second, and then try to speed up to catch up with the audio, which was throwing everything out of sync... and almost saw the computer becoming my cat's newest toy, but I digress  :D
Should've explained that in the first post, but I was tired and being dumb.

Considering I just figured out exactly what a swap partition really does (I was mistaken about its function for a while), I appreciate the explanation on switching values! I've been running Linux for a little bit, but am nowhere near an expert, so thanks for that one. Also, I switched swappiness, so hopefully it'll all work properly!

If its all looking good in an hour or so, I'll mark the thread as solved in the title.

Thanks for the welcome!

I just ran the first two commands with a couple of tabs open, including one that's got a YouTube video paused but loading. For some reason (maybe because I'm n00btastic), I can't select the output from the top command. Is this sufficient, or should I screenshot what terminal is saying?

Software & Applications / YouTube Lag (SOLVED)
« on: July 27, 2016, 03:45:01 am »
I've done a bit of Googling, but can't seem to find anything that quite matches up with my issue.
Basically, YouTube videos are stuttering and lagging/getting jumpy after about a minute of watching, regardless of whether its full screen, standard view, or theatre mode. The thing is, the videos are all buffering properly, and there'll be at least a minute's worth loaded ahead of where I am, so I'm pretty sure its not an internet issue. Videos also run no problem on the app with my phone (which rarely gets even half the signal strength of my computer).

I'm wondering if its software-related, or if the videos are just gobbling my RAM (which doesn't make sense, as there's 2GB there to use). I haven't tried Firefox yet, as I'm more comfortable with Chrome/Chromium.
Any suggestions?
