Boredom strikes again…Posted: September 18, 2010
The first week of school is over and I’m now trying to relax by listening to Afterhours (on my modded radio/CD/cassette player ) and surfing the Web. Of course, PulseAudio is being a bastard, randomly killing music playback now and then, but that’s easily fixed by switching to ALSA.
Ubuntu works pretty well for now, though. Probably the biggest problem I now have is with Firefox. I installed the “Virus Scanner” app from USC to test it, and a day later I realized that Firefox now only offered to open downloaded files with it or save them. No Evince, no File Roller, no OpenOffice. I then deleted it, but FF only offers to save all files now. It’s annoying when I need to quickly open a PDF or archive. If I wanted to save them, I would have used Chrome
But alas, I’m getting bored again. Really, really bad for my laptop
