I’ve got a desktop that I use as my primary work machine. It runs Fedora 18 and drives 2 monitors via an old but serviceable GeForce card. Unfortunately what that means is I’ve got to live in a world of crappy compromises. It took me quite a while just to get things working. I started […]
I’m a Fedora user as I’ve mentioned before. I do not run the default de, gnome though. I’m a KDE user. I recently moved my main work machine to Fedora 18. I had a bump or two but I’ve gotten things mostly dialed in. Today I tried to use the Gimp to do some work […]
