See the link I provided earlier

First install gimp-plugin-registry

Place all you pics in say a folder

Fire up GIMP and go to Filters > Batch > Batch Process

In the resulting window choose the input tab .. and click "Add Files" .. browse to the ~/Pictures/from-camera directory and click the top file, then holding Shift key click the last file to select them all .. click the "Open" button ..

Software & Applications / Re: Skype for 64bit acting up.
« on: July 06, 2014, 04:21:35 pm »
I suppose you could always make the Skype .desktop launchers Exec= line read

Exec=bash -c "rm -r /home/<userrname>/.config/Skype && skype"

Not ideal .. but a workaround.

Maybe you should try a later version of Skype and see if that hels.



Probably best to copy the Skype launcher from
/usr/share/applications
to
~/.local/share/applications
then edit the one in your home folder .. which will then take precedence over the system wide launcher

What happens if you replace "quiet splash" with "recovery nomodeset" .. then when at the recovery screen choose to resume booting ?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C display
?

Is this a desktop or laptop ? .. if a desktop, I take it you've checked the cabling (obvious I know, but doesn't hurt to ask).

Software & Applications / Re: Dolphin file manager not working
« on: July 06, 2014, 04:09:59 pm »
Run:
Code: [Select]
rm -v /home/ms/.local/share/applications/dolphin.desktop
that should have cleared it from the menu :)

Installation / Re: Peperment USB stick not booting to Live
« on: July 06, 2014, 04:02:58 pm »
Try using dd to write the image to USB stick.

It won't give you persistence .. but it could rule in/out the USB creation software.

Are you sure these PC's can boot from USB stick .. have they ever booted another distro from USB stick ?

Try ernests

blacklist=firewire_ohci
and/or
firewire-ohci.blacklist=yes

boot parameter(s) along with removing "quiet splash" and see if it gets any further.

if it does .. post the last message on screen both before and after hitting Esc

Hate to just point you at a link, but adding undetected resolution can be a PITA .. see here:
