Welcome to the weekend.
Well, it's the weekend here in the Winterland household and the coffee's on, help yourself to a cup.
So, I'm humming along now with my somewhat new dual boot - Windows 7 Home and Kubuntu 14.04 - and everything seems to be working pretty well. I've jumped back & forth several times, making sure I can access both sides and everything is working well.
I'm on my Linux side right now and there are a few little things that I can't seem to figure out. I've tried searching via the standard routes - Google, Duck Duck Go and even the official database I found here but am still stymied.
I would also like to point out that my end goal is to tweak this Distro so that most things look / feel / act like my Windows side. If that's not possible, I'm okay with that, but I don't want to give up without trying.
Here's the wish list:
- System Notifications sounds. Logging off / logging on / pop up windows - what am I missing here and/or how do I turn these on and tweak?
- Firefox fonts? I seem to be missing some of the defaults in Firefox that are available on my Windows side but not in Kubuntu
Here's a screen shot of the fonts see in Firefox on my Windows side but are not available when I go to tweak them in Kubuntu.
Those are my two biggest hurdles as things stand now.
If there are any other tweaks and/or ideas that you think I should check out please let me know.
I did turn on my firewall and have been updating all my apps as they've become available and also downloaded the usual suspects: VLC Media Player, LibreOffice, a few games, GIMP, etc.
