In Topic: What does Linux do when it shuts down?

...now to just get rid of fans!

 

No I need the fan to blow out all the hot air when browsing news sites  :)

I wonder if you couldn't write a batch file that would blow away the offending files once a month, or, if there isn't an application that will do that for you.

 

My first thoughts too, and to do it on boot. Or maybe even set the browser to clear its cache on exit.

 

Have never used the app myself, but there must be a way to outsmart it.

In Topic: Add a VPN connection greyed out

If I remember well you should have four packages to install, not present in a default Bodhi

 

Close. It was the gnome versions I was missing.

 

To add VPN options to Edit Connections > Network Connections > Add

 

Install:

 

openvpn

network-manager

network-manager-openvpn

network-manager-openvpn-gnome

 

To also offer PPTP install:

 

pptp-linux

network-manager-pptp

network-manager-pptp-gnome

 

Now the VPN Connections option in the system tray applet is no longer greyed out. Successfully connected via PPTP by both Ethernet and WiFi.

 

The configuration options are also showing for VPN setup if I need the extra security, but at a slower speed.

 

Thanks for the nudge in the right direction with the gnome "extra".

Under Hardware > DSL connection I see the type of information I need to enter.

 

Set one up, but it just disconnected and reverted to my Ethernet connection. Also obviously it doesn't work on WiFi.

 

What am I not understanding?

......sounds like you have decent experience with linux.

 

Yeah, I've broken enough things to almost know what I'm doing.

 

The most important thing I've learned with computing is, to always make a system image before making any major changes.

 

I uninstalled Midori after installing Slimjet - big mistake! Had to do a restore and install Slimjet again. Now I know not to remove Midori.
