    No Solus OS in repository??
    I was searching through the directory of "download Linux" and I discovered that Solus OS is not listed. LINUX.COM was the first place I was able to discover and I really think this OS should be added. I went to make a feeble attempt to add, but don't know a lot of the stuff needed to post. While I may not know a whole lot yet, I do know that I am very pleased with Solus as my everyday runner. I started with Fedora, then Ubuntu. I went to Zorin, Linux Mint and tried a couple others and none have set Solus as my "ROCK"! Just a heads up though, I wouldn't do a dual boot with this one, run it solo. Not saying that it can't be done, but my exp has caused conflicts. However, after running this, I don't want anything else.

    RE: Suggestions?
    I will note though that double clicking can be bad when using this Netflix and will require a restart of the Netflix. My mouse has a happy trigger and I found out the hard way, but other than that no problems except video is jumpy for the first few minutes most likely due to my extremely sub standard graphics card

    I am running Netflix just fine on Ubuntu 12.04. If you want the info, lemme know. I was given the magic info on the Ubuntu forums. Also, I tried Linux Mint. It runs fine for about 10 minutes then reboots outta the blue. I have also had problems running Zorin. The only one that seems to run smoothly on that pc is Ubuntu 12.04. All discs were burnt in same burner and I'm not sure if it's my burner or the "suicide" job of foxconn as it was suggested on the Zorin forum. LOL The Netflix runs like an app and does use wine. Yesterday, developer and programmer extraordinaire Erich Hoover and I spent several hours working out all of the Netflix Desktop kinks. Most users will have no problems with installation now. Here is how to install the Netflix Desktop App on Ubuntu. Open a terminal and run these commands: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop Once installed, go up to the top left of your screen and open your Unity dash and search for Netflix and run the app. It will load up everything needed on the first run. After logging into your Netflix account and selecting a video to play, Silverlight should ask you to enable DRM content. Please enable. Netflix movies should work fine now :) Congrats! The Netflix app starts in full screen mode. You can exit out of the app completely by pressing ALT+F4. You can also press F11 to exit out of full screen mode. If you have any questions please post them in the comments and we'll try our best to answer them. Erich Hoover recommends donating to WINE Development Fund... http://www.winehq.org/donate/ You can also "thank" Erich for his hard work by donating to his ChipIn... http://netflixonlinux.chipin.com/netflix-works-on-ubuntu

    RE: Suggestions?
    I'll give it a run. Thanks. I'm also gonna try Zorin. I downloaded and ran the live cd and liked what I saw for those short 5 minutes. It had the actual google chrome browser instead of Chromium which isn't always the same compatibility as Chrome. I'm learning so much, but as I do I realize I know less and less. LOL BTW, is there any way to play Netflix? I know Linux used to have the Moonlight I think it was called, but support dropped.

    Hi there. I've been an ubuntu user since last year. I actually started with fedora. Didn't like it at the time, but I really didn't know anything then. I'm fairly happy with my ubuntu, but was thinking of as dif os for my other pc. Was just looking for some suggestions is all. I will be using a media center pc with a 3GHz dual core, 8GB DDR2 RAM, an ok 1080p 3D graphics card. I mainly want a fast, stable, powerfull if I should need it os. I mainly listen and save and swap my music, web, movies, burning DVD's (which I still can't quite figure out LOL) Photos and photo editing and run it through my LCD TV. I thought about trying zorin, but what else is good too. I would probably love the ubuntu much more if I could get half the stuff running right. I follow all instructions to no avail. 3D cube makes plasma crash and had to uninstall compiz to work again and cube screen suddenly quit working days later when I didn't change anything (that I'm aware of) and even unity effects are failing and been running the lxde cause it runs the best. Maybe a premium version with support? I'm just looking for some opinions is all guys. Thanks P.S. If anybody tells me to get windows, I might just lose it!! LOL :)

    RE: Linux advices for dummies
    I have been using Ubuntu 12.04 since last Summer. I love it. I have the kde and compiz with cube effects (6 sides) and wobbly and transparent windows. I need to find a downloader that works well for movies from various sites. Any help please? I was using Jdownloader on Win 7, but windows crashed. I tried a few like multiget and such with no luck. Maybe I just don't know how to correctly use them? The Jdownloader site said they had 1 for linux, but I can't find it. Any tips also would be helpful since I am rookie to these downloaders.

    USB not working
    My USB quit working, partially. They all recognize a device is plugged in, but some won't work. Only my wireless mouse and keyboard work, but only in selected slots. It installed drivers for my Logitech webcam, but wont run. I have Ubuntu 12.04 Lts and Win 7 ultimate and does this on both O.S.'s. This just started happening. HP media center PC m7277c

    RE: Problem with downloads on Fedora 17 64 bit
    Thank you very much. Installed Ubuntu and working fine. Going to attempt zorin install from Ubuntu. Curious is all. I've seen things on youtube that interest me. I have Ubuntu on my more powerful PC running a 3GHz dual core and I love it. Silverlight Cert sites are my only problem such as Netflix. Gonna try Brazil server Netflix and see if that works. LOL
