Search missing

Thunar file manager lacks a search feature in the menu. Fedora GNOME for x86 and Fedora KDE for x86 computers contained a search feature in their file manager.

How do I search for a file?

lapdock's cursor jumping

While using gedit in Pidora and geany and leafpad in pibang, the cursor jumps unpredictably while I am typing. No particular key in the keyboard is causing the jumping. I do not know what is causing the jumping. My raspi Model b rev2 and Atrix lapdock are new. The jumping cursor has gotten worse. To...

Re: Lapdocks not for laps

No, I did not expect any problems because the tutorials I read and watched did not discuss a wiggle problem. The tutorials discussed the 100 lapdock and 500 lapdock requiring a HDMI script, sound script and wifi script. The tutorials didn't discuss that the Atrix and Bionic Droid lapdocks require sc...

Re: Matching characters on chips

elinux wiki (http://elinux.org/RaspberryPiBoard) does not identify the chips on the top and bottom boards. Since the raspi was developed for education, I am surprised that mechanical drawings or close up photographs do not exist that identify the characters imprinted on the chips with their function.
