    The PCLinuxOS Magazine: The Latest

    There are downloadable pdf magazines for your spare time. You should have no problem with it being a former Open Suse user.
    Congrats on the install.

    Thanks Roky!! I prefer gnome to KDE but I've got no choice. I was surprised that there isn't a Konqueror browser in the synaptic packages. I should be able to get the printer and firewall working by the end of the week.

    Full Monty looks like a different and interesting take on KDE.

    No Ghostery For The Seamonkey Browser.

    First no Konqueror browser; now no ghostery for the Seamonkey browser. I'll have to use Firefox for now. Not Good!!

    There are two other browsers included in PCLOS Mate, Opera and Google Chrome. I looked at Opera and removed it! I will not use Google Chrome under any circumstances!!

    Have you tried Midori which should be in the repositories of most distributions?

    I agree with you about Chrome but quite like Opera or I would if it was FOSS.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Elija, I looked at Midori a while back on another distro and I did not like it. I've spent the day today searching for a way to get a Konqueror browser onto PCLOS Mate to no avail!
