8/6/2014- hand out for gtcc

by Dale

MINT: A FANTASTIC RESOURCE FOR USE ON YOUR WAY TO BECOMING A PROFICIENT LINUX MINT USER. 
The book "INTRODUCTION TO LINUX, A HANDS ON GUIDE" is free and looks like a very good reference for us all. I have not read much of it, but I certainly plan to. Access it by going to: http://linuxquestions.tradepub.com/free/w_mach01/
MANY GOOD WEBSITES FOR HELP DOWNLOADING MINT 13 AND 17, SUCH AS:

WILL YOUR OLD COMPUTER HANDLE?
MINT 13: System requirements:
Processor: Pentium 4  1,4 Ghz
RAM memory: 512 MB
Video card: 32 MB
Hard disk space: 10 GB
MINT 17: System requirements:
  • x86 processor (Linux Mint 64-bit requires a 64-bit processor. Linux Mint 32-bit works on both 32-bit and 64-bit processors).
  • 512 MB RAM (1GB recommended for a comfortable usage).
  • 10 GB of disk space
  • DVD drive or USB port 
GOOD INFO FOR INSTALLING MINT 13:

TO PARTITION YOUR HARD DRIVE, SUCH AS:
Note: unless you are an old hand at partitioning hard drives, I suggest you read this information and act on whatever information therein you deem to be useful to you. Partition your hard drive according to how much you anticipate using the two different OSs in the future. Probably, Mint 17 should have 20 MB to allow for future storage. I suggest you store your pictures on a separate external hard drive and back them up on a second hard drive that is  not carried around with you as you travel. The Mint install process has its own hard drive partitioning program but you might have more control over the partition size process if you use the one above.

PROBABLY THE BEST DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS:
CHECK OUT THE MINT DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS ON JEP’S 'GREENTREES' WEBSITE ALSO!

SOME THINGS TO DO AFTER INSTALLING MINT 17

USE WINE (INSTALL WINE BEFORE TRYING TO ADD PROGRAMS)
Probably best to download Wine from within Mint 17, but here is more info:
USE THE MINT SEARCH PROGRAM TO SEE IF AN MS PROGRAM YOU LIKE IS AVAILABLE TO USE WITH WINE:  http://appdb.winehq.org/

-What Kindle do I have

-Power saving on/off
-Mirroring to tv
UPDATE: These new HDX tablets DO NOT have an HDMI port. However, you can still view your Kindle Fire screen on a TV by using the new mirror feature. Although this awesome new way to mirror your Kindle Fire screen on your television requires a few accessories, I believe it's worth it since you don't need a cord (sweet!).
-Connectors / cables
-Do it all
-Everything they all do

-Too many sites open'

GTCC - search tool

HERE IS A TOOL (PROGRAM) 
TO SEARCH YOUR COMPUTER AND DISK DRIVES

This program came from
GOOGLE DESK TOP
(google no longer supports this for widgets)
But as a search engine, it is excellent
 
You can down load it here


this will find anything on your hard disk - fast-
try it,
 hit the control key two times 
(to open the search window)


and see what you find:
type in a name
type in a photo number
a little text
it will show you where you have lost something on your computer

You might want to try it first, at GTCC lab
go to  the #1
XP machine by the TV
or
the #4
 WIN7 machine by the door

I only let it search the computer files, 
widgets, and emails are not enabled

this is the best search program I know of
 for WIN machines

FAMOUS EXPLODING WHALE --- AGAIN ?

Lets hope they do not explode this whale like they did the Famous one in 1970 -- watch here

CLICK ON PICTURE TO GET LARGER VIEW

Mary Nulty

Today Sunday March 8, a deep water juvenile male Fin Whale washed up on the beach at Heceta Head Lighthouse. On Friday it was seen at the mouth of the Siuslaw River in Florence. Hatfield Marine Science Center and Oregon State University officials took samples to try to determine why the whale died. It is hoped that this 40 foot whale will wash back out to see Monday at a higher tide than today. The state park was closed to traffic this afternoon until further notice. There is parking on the west side of 101 just after the tunnel and bridge.
