duel boot opensuse/windows - Windows needs repair

Linux Questions - Tue, 10/04/2022 - 20:35
The windows partition will attempt to boot. No options work. I thought about the windows disk repair, but worried about damaging grub and the opensuse partition. Its no loss to me if its too risky to try a repair, but since it is not booting, I thought of giving it a shot. Has anyone done such a repair on a dual boot hard drive?

Configure translucency in KDE Konsole to always show the Desktop wallpaper instead of the window under it

Linux Questions - Tue, 10/04/2022 - 19:04
Hi Folks,

Way back in KDE 3.x there was a setting that would allow you to set the transparency of the kconsole or Terminal to transparent so that it would always show the Desktop wallpaper. If I dragged the window to the top left corner of the monitor it would show the desktop wallpapers top left corner and this was the case even when there was another window behind the konsole window. So if I had a Firefox window in the background and then the console window over it, the konsole would still show the wallpaper instead of the Firefox window.

Attached is a screenshot that kind of shows what I want. But I want this even when the window is over another window, i.e. if the window is over a document I don't want to see the document text in Konsole, I still want to see the Wallpaper only.

For some reason this setting was removed in KDE 4, and I have been unable to get it back since then. Any suggestions on how this can be achieved? My System Details are as follows:

* Debian Unstable
* Konsole Version 22.04.1
* KDE Frameworks Version 5.98.0

I do see that I can set a wallpaper for the Konsole under the Profile configuration but that would be a last resort.

Thanks in advance for the help.

LXer: Installing LibreOffice On Slackware 15

Linux Questions - Tue, 10/04/2022 - 18:33
Published at LXer:

Slackware has been one of my favorite GNU/Linux distributions for a very long time, especially since Version 8.0 came out, many moons back. The reason is that it embodies the "KISS" method of designing a distribution. Sadly, Slackware didn't include OpenOffice.org back then, and it doesn't include LibreOffice now. Fortunately, there is a way to install a fully-functional, latest-greatest, LibreOffice on our Slackware 15.0 computers and use it. T

Lightweight Linux on HP Stream 14

Linux Questions - Tue, 10/04/2022 - 14:14
I have a HP Stream 14 netbook ex-Windows 8. It's light, with a nice screen and the audio is OK. I'd really like to carry on using it.
Trying to find a light Linux distro that doesn't hammer the 2Gb RAM (only 1.65Gb usable) or 32Gb storage. All the light distros I have tried have stumbled at install somewhere along the line.
Biggest bugbear is the Broadcom BCM43142 WiFi card that very rarely is detected at install. I can sometimes fix that by installing drivers but often find I cannot access the /lib/firmware/brcm folder to add the files - either because I cannot access via root or cannot find a way to finding or creating the folder.
Mostly, the larger distros run up against the RAM limits and pretty much all the usual lightweight distros run OK with lighter browsers but none will access all the hardware aspects - screen resolutaion etc., even sometimes not allowing the use of UK/GB keyboard or language.
All I need is a distro that can handle web browsing adequately, use the native Broadcom card and boot in a reasonable time. Currently on Mint 20.3 Xfce.
There;s got to be a distro out there somewhere for me.
Any ideas?

Old external drive

Linux Questions - Tue, 10/04/2022 - 13:47
Hi guys

I have an old IDE drive that I put in an external usb connector box.

It's pretty old hardware but the data on it has some interest to me - I try now to recover it and then will throw the drive away.

So it's a mass-storage device which filesystem should be ext2fs (old drive I told).

Unfortunately I have errors at connection:
