We just will keep making what I am hoping others see as helpful, well meant suggestions. I still remember when I was a Linux noob and some stupid things I did, and how difficult it was for me to ‘get’ certain concepts. Then after I began to get a knowledge base things slowly but surely got easier. And do understand, I’m no code writer or developer, just a user trying as best I can to help other users. Believe me I’m not so perfect or well behaved that I don’t sometimes get corrected.
As you can see that creates what we call an embedded link which is easy for everyone to open. Posting a screen shot is the same you select the file you want to upload and just do it. screen shots made by Spectacle are usually .png or .jpg file type.
Note: The contents of the file I posted are irrelevant, just used that file as an example.
Post-edit: And do remember you can go back and edit your earlier posts to make them all pretty and proper and get out of @rugyada’s dog house.
I don’t know what is going on. All I did was copy and paste that link and there is no problem for me here.
If you were trying to use the upload icon like I described above we need to figure out why? There has to be a reason, that I do know. And then report it to Infra team to be corrected.
I don’t understand why there would be any restriction on a new user posting text files, screen shots, or pastebin links. I’ve not heard of or encountered such a thing here or in other Linux distro forums such as openSUSE or Fedora. This is a Support forum and it is useless if users can’t at least do that much.
If you took a screen shot with Spectacle it has to be one of those file types. Most likely it’s a .png. See my screen shot above where it says “File Upload”. That is my Pictures directory with one .txt file and the rest are all Spectacle screen shots, ergo .png files.
Anyway hope this isn’t overbearing and that it somehow helps.
FWIW: “urpme --auto-orphans” is removing packages that were installed as dependencies some time in the past and are no longer needed or packages that were replaced with packages with a different name. So no harm done normally and benefit of not having unnecessary packages on your system which can lead to problems. Anyway that is why it removes 179 packages in this instance. Post-edit: And this is important for all users > You do not have to run ‘–auto-orphans’. If you are the least bit afraid or concerned don’t do it until you can confirm here or at #openmandriva on Freenode IRC.
can be ignored. As I said in an earlier post urpmi creates errors and warnings that aren’t.
If there is anything else of concern in that output please ask.
@zaivala There is something new and great here. It is at the least a better than average Alpha in terms of how much is/isn’t working. We would appreciate the help testing so pass this on if you know others that may be interested.
I am waiting for the Final release with bated breath. But I don’t have time or experience dealing with Alphas or Betas. Always too many distros to try out. I just loaded Deepin 15.8 and don’t have room anywhere to try out MX 18. But I will certainly give OMA 4 a full shot when it is ready.
