Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
For example if a system contains both the GNOME and the KDE desktop environments it can decide to use gnome-applications.menu as the menu layout in GNOME sessions and kde-applications.menu as the menu layout in KDE sessions. To correctly reflect this, it should set the $XDG_MENU_PREFIX environment variable to "gnome-" respectively "kde-".
The problem isn't with freedesktop.org. The problem is with KDE. You see, KDE wants to call an application that sets system wide settings for KDE APPLICATIONS 'system settings' when it's really KDE application settings. The post on the mailing list is immature geek-rage.
Of course, the GNOME system settings includes settings for gnome-specific applications as well. So really, both dev teams just have a simple organization problem and one of the little kids is whining about not wanting to fix theirs because they've been doing it wrong first.
I routinely walked the 2.5km to grade school or the 5.5 kms to high school, i even walked the 10.8km to cegep. When you're poor and you want an education you do what you have to.
I did live right in front of the municipal library, but being quebec i exhausted the english section by the time i was about 10. Well, not true, i didn't read all the charlie brown and garfield books they had, never really wasted much time on comics.
I think the distances of my schools is pretty interesting, and of course, my university is apparently 21.8km away, though by that time i moved to housing right beside university.
My God! my God! to what sort of persons hast thou left me?
Ad quid dereliquisti me? "To what hast thou abandoned me?
Take your pick. Jesus only choose to follow god, it was god's plan though.
The Bible says that no sinner will enter the kingdom of heaven/God. In order to qualify for that, we would have to be perfect... literally.
Obviously there is no one that qualifies for that. But that's where Jesus comes in, because he lived out the law of the scriptures and torah *perfectly* to the very period. Every aspect, every trait, every characteristic, every element, every little tiny thing possibly imaginable about his life was lived *perfectly*.
Except that Jesus didn't follow the law perfectly. If he was without sin, why did he not pick up stones and stone the person as the law demanded?
The purpose of the Law is to remind of us of our sin, ignorance, arrogance, stubbornness, hate, lust, etcetera. That is the only purpose the Law serves now. It is important to realize that ONLY through Jesus' we are free and perfect (no, not our bodies as they are merely vessels in this world that God has given us to use for His glory, but our spiritual-side) and that we can do and are NOTHING.
Verily, verily, I say to you, he who is believing in me, the works that I do -- that one also shall do, and greater than these he shall do, because I go on to my Father
Follow the Tao you become the Tao.
Why so much vehemence in your arguments?
I don't know why i'm responding, because obviously you've been indoctrinated by somebody who has never read the bible and neither have you. The trinity is an invention by the Catholic church which not all churchs agree with.
Well, minimize buttons could be added in my framework, but i know i won't do it, i don't even like title bars stealing my real estate.
Personally, i'm all about choice which is why i'm writing my own window manager that can be customized however anybody want's it, using whatever keystrokes, mouse event, or gesture, which is why i'd be interested in why you use minimize.
What i said has nothing to do with Gnome, but how to use any windowmanager. You do know they are there to actually MANAGE windows right? If you don't know how to set it up so windows start where you want them and in the state you want them, then you're probably a windows user no? Why minimize something (except to look at the pretty graphics) when you can more quickly alt-tab it away? If it's a problem because you have multiple windows occupying the screen, learn how to organize your information into desktops. This is just complaining by people that haven't learned how to use the new abstractions and are caught in windows 3.1 stage.
we do countless minimize-maximize actions over the course of a normal workday.
It seems like you do not know how to work your window-manager. I can't even remember the last time i had to use maximise or minimize.
White people needed to build all these things to try and find that elusive happiness and joy.
Now, which do you think is the smarter people?
From someone being on the receiving end of their activities and seeing it occur to my coloured friends, take my word they won't ever let this happen.
P.S. it doesn't matter that the police in my area discriminated using ethnicity and language, there is always something to discriminate upon.
