By now I have LinuxMint 14 Xfce Nadia 32 bit. My printer is a Canon Ip4500
and I don't remember how I managed to make it work. I am not a geek neither
a nerd, just somebody who had some jobs in bank computer services long time
ago. So when I don't remember how I did it, it means I ha no problem. But I
tried to print from W7 to the same printer on XP and it was impossible.
To access the CUPS interface for any Linux distro using any web browser enter: http://localhost:631/ into the browser.
I managed to print from an Xp via Samba, even it was less easy. I am very
surprised by the giant step Linux has climb from Debian Potatoes till
today. Everything is so simple : when I was in Delhi I had no problem to
use my 3G Tata photon on Ubuntu and then on Nadia. And mainly, to make
easier the compatibility between my computer and my wife'one I
use...Windows. It means I don't know Linux.

Windows is stuck when, Linux runs ?

Today I opened the same small files with calc on Nadia, it was LO 3.6, and
I has to wait 12 seconds instead of 50 seconds !

Which version are you going to use?

I understand there are two now, one based on Ubuntu and the other based
directly on Debian.

I had difficulties with installing networked printers - Canon and Epson
inkjets - when I tested Linux Mint on a computer I attached to my TV for
media streaming for YouTube and other Internet content.  Otherwise it
worked well.

Are you going to go with Cinnamon or MATE desktop, or the non-GNOME
ported ones.

As for using RPi's version of LO, it was compiled fore its hardware and
OS system so it might not work well at all on an Atom system.

I do wonder how hard it would be to compile LO to a specific system and
its hardware.  I know it would take a real long time to do the compiling
on a slower systems.

Thanks Tom and krackedpress,

I keep this idea and will have a look later. After four days I will be

Hi :)
So the trick would be to try to download and use the LibreOffice from
Raspberry Pi people.  Compiling yourself takes a ridiculously long
If the RPi one does work then it's an instant win

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Re: How I can reduce the loading
of Calc ?
I have heard that the RPi system uses a Debian based OS that was
"modified/compiled" for the RPi, and that the LO version for the RPi
compiled from the Debian-based source code to work efficiently on the
specific architecture.  The RPi speed is similar to a P4 300 to 700 MHz
depending on the OS, the model [A or B],  and tweaks to the hardware.
The good news for US, LO and TDF, is the RPi is near its 1 million
of made/sold units and its default office package is LibreOffice.  Even
a quarter of those some units have had the user installed LO on them,
will give LO a set of young [or no so young] users.  The user count for
that could be 200,000 or more world wide.  Getting the young school
started with LO should tend to make them want to use LO on more
and more powerful systems.
As for the RPi/Pi system. . . . .
It was designed for the education market.  They are inexpensive basic
one-board systems to help teach school age kids how to program in a few
languages, like Python, and by using a attachable controller to be able
create simple [and complex] electronic devices/system for robotics and
controller systems.  They were meant to be low costing entry level
for those kids and schools that did not have the budgets to buy all of
needed "units" for their computer lab to have one computer per student
the lab.  Actually, with the SD card having both the OS and
the student could have a RPi at home and bring in the SD card he/she
using and work on the same OS and data/program in the school's lab.  No
need to have a networked server with student accounts and such.  The
was designed to work as well as it could at the lowest cost possible to
schools and the kids.
Atom based, and similar, systems were not powerful enough for my needs
for home/office and mobile needs.
So I forgot all of the tricks and tweaks that could be used in the
systems still out there for used systems and for sale in the small
foot-print system that have Atom and similar speed/power CPUs.
For me, even a single core AMD 3500+ CPU with 512 - 1,024 MB RAM
seems too slow for my needs.  My Intel dual core T3200 2.0 GHz CPU and
3 GB
RAM DELL laptop seems slow to me now.  My new[er] dual core Intel
B950 2.1 GHz with 4 GB RAM Gateway laptop is better, but not up-to my
desktop I bought in Feb 2010.  I needed the power/speed of the quad for
home/office use.

Hi :)
Sadly i suspect that it's really going to take someone building it
source code in order to make much faster.  Current builds and standard
downloads are built against very different architecture.  It might be
exploring the Pi project to see if they have a usable build but that
still be not quite perfect on other Atom machines.  The Pi one is
likely to
be shed loads better even if not quite perfect.
Sorry, i should have thought of it before!
Apols and regards from

      Yes, the sheet is not complex enough for the file to be large
