What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Asus 1000HE eee PC

Welcome aboard, dpoet58   :)

I found a comment from the Libre Office website that seems to indicate that Libre Office can open .wps files.  I might install it and test it out but I was wondering if anyone that has Libre Office already has done this before.

I found an online sample of a .WPS file and DL'ed it. Works well enough on this box...   ;)

Right. You haven't discovered the 'missing link' yet.   :)

Here's the trick...

Edit and save your '/etc/inxi.conf' file, so it reads like this:

Code: [Select]
## We want to use the distro to track the package
B_ALLOW_UPDATE=true
To test it, when you're done, run this command from CLI:

Code: [Select]
cat /etc/inxi.conf
Your should see something like this:

Code: [Select]
╭─vindsl@Boogaloo-6 ~ 
╰─$ cat /etc/inxi.conf       
## We want to use the distro to track the package
B_ALLOW_UPDATE=true
Then, update Inxi by running this command from CLI:

Code: [Select]
$ sudo inxi -U 
This is what I see on my machine:

Code: [Select]
╭─vindsl@Boogaloo-6 ~ 
╰─$ sudo inxi -U               
[sudo] password for vindsl:

Well I'll be damned   :o

I was fooling around tonight, trying to figure out how to use Inxi to scrape weather conditions for Conky.

Reading the Man, I knew Inxi was capable of displaying weather conditions, but I was missing a piece of the puzzle.

Finally figured it out, and the pieces fell into place.   ;D

Code: EXAMPLE [Select]
╭─vindsl@Boogaloo-6 ~

Weather:
  Temperature: 25.2 C (77 F) Conditions: Clear sky
  Wind: from WSW at 0.5 m/s (2 km/h, 1 mph) Cloud Cover: 0% Humidity: 15%
  Dew Point: -3.3 C (26 F) Pressure: 930.2 mb (31 in) Location: Tucson, Az
  Current Time: Wed 27 May 2020 12:12:26 AM MST

Now I just need to haxor an algo to scrape the data for Conky...

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Dell Latitude E6510

If I needed another laptop (I also have two And it accepts a hard drive "caddy" in place of the optical drive. So I have SSDs with Mint and MX Linux and Feren OS. (For some reason.)

That's what I did. I use a smallish SSD as my primary drive and a 1TB spinner in the caddy.

BTW, I'm on my leash right now. Check the dog. ;D

See what I mean about Dell Latitude E Series 10i!!! ... VinDSL has three, I forget how many PCNetSpec kept in his stable...

Two (2) D Series Latitudes (D620 & ATG D630)  -  One (1) E Series Latitude (E6430), and...

I also own Five (5) Dell OptiPlex 7010 boxes (which run equally good on PM) but, who's counting?   ;D

Good job, Detective, hellbraker   :)

If you consider the problem 'solved', be sure to edit the title of your original post. Such as...

System taking 100% CPU. (SOLVED)

This will help other users find a solution, while doing a 'search.'
