If it's a cool n sexy application, yes, please DO add it to the App Center. Maybe it can replace VLC?

In Topic: Installing from an INSTALLED pendrive

...and btw, on the pendrive, there are TWO partitions - one for the rest of it, and one for /home - what do I do? Do I dd the rest of it, and then manually copy the files from /home over onto the HD? (don't want 2 separate partitions on the *HD* for the Bodhi....)

Oh right - is it possible to use one of the OTHER OSes to do the GRUB updating? Like, I dd my Bodhi to a new partition I make, and then go to one of them, and do what you said above? The others are CentOS and Makulu.

 

And someone please answer my question - is it neccesary to format before dd'ing, or does dd'ing do it for you?

In Topic: Is Chromium "calling home"?

Pale Moon was a fork of Firefox but is developed in a other direction, speed, stability and safety first. It has it's own engine (Goanna).

It's a nice browser, I use it for years, themable, plugins, nice developer tools to debug your website.

 

Is it GUARANTEED not to spy on me? Like, has someone made CERTAIN of that??!! What's so nice about these dev tools that Firefox doens't have?

In Topic: What browser is there in the "Standard" version?

26 April 2017 - 06:01 PM

Ok thanks, both Charles n Bob. Actually, I downloaded the Standard version before I read your replies - which, probably, is a good thing cause I'm sure the AppPack one has Chromium as the browser, and I want Firefox, NOT that!

 

OK, here's my situation, so listen up: I want to put this "Standard" ISO on a pendrive and use it from there - ie. WITHOUT INSTALLING!! That's how I've been using 3.something for months now, and since I've now downloaded 4, well - why not?

Lemme make it clear - I DON'T HAVE A HARD DRIVE!! And I don't really intend to get one for the moment.

 

So - what I want to do is, put this ISO on a USB, like I said, and THEN add Firefox to it! How do I do that? ie. have it be persistent? I would also like to save browser history, and also my dongle needs some fiddling to get me online, I'd like it to remember that obviously, uptil now, I've been doing the "fiddling" every time I boot!! - Bloody Annoying, I think you'll agree!

 

So - what do I have to do before I start dd'ing? :) I have access to a 3.1.something AppPack INSTALLED pendrive (I have 2 pendrives), so I *do* have a Linux system. What next? (Phew! I think that's everything!.... :) -  no hang on, actually I'd like Geany too! (like I said up there.) )
