I enjoy the fact that there are so many Linux desktop environments out there and I don't have to stay with one that just annoys me. Back to Cinnamon, but I can just stay on Fedora (which has almost turned into a rolling release with its new stable update system).

I'm getting a detailed error in connecting to the Google talk plugin in Hangouts on Debian Linux. The full error from the terminal follows in the link, but the main part seems to be this:

[019:349] Warning(pluginutils.cc:267): Failed to get GoogleTalkPlugin path. Trying default.
[019:352] Started GoogleTalkPlugin, path=/opt/google/talkplugin/GoogleTalkPlugin

I haven't tried yet, but It seems to work :)

Hi all,

I just hosted two hangouts on air. I can find both of the videos on YouTube, but neither of them appear in the video manager yet. One still says that the Hangout is live, even though I ended it by clicking the hangup button. Any ideas as to what I can do?

Also, it can take YouTube up to 24 hours to process your HOA video event under noirmal circumstances.

Great to hear!  I am in the market for a laptop and remembered you had one.  It seems that manufacturers keep changing their trackpads (for the worst).  I agree with you on the Thinkpad nubbin' though.  Good to know about the laptop though.  Might be joining your ranks soon.

I'm getting the Pangolin Performance since I don't need it to be super mobile (I have the Kindle Fire for that) and it was $10 bucks more for a 15.6 inch screen. i5 chip and 8gb of ram makes me excited, and its not a billion dollars like most laptops with linux pre-installed.

I'll give Ubuntu and Unity a fair shake, but I will likely go back to Debian and Gnome3.
