Re: Anyone know how to add SpinRite to UBCD?

For the record, SpinRite worked just fine on my flash drive following these instructions. SpinRite is an ancient program that only runs correctly on old (think Pentium 4) systems with 2TB or smaller drives. Steve Gibson is supposed to be updating it, but keeps getting distracted with side projects (...

Hi Kof94, I think you're alone on that one. Personally, I wouldn't know how to start Parted Magic if it weren't on the menu. Having all the options visible on the menu is the only way that makes sense. Like it or not most people wouldn't know how to access the majority of features on the CD if they ...

Hi Kof94, Frankly, I don't know what you're talking about. There's an ugly simplistic interface loaded with tools when you first boot off the CD.

Single Click to open files

I just wanted to chime in and say that the file manager setting where you single click to open files vs. double-click is really annoying. I think most people are used to the opposite behavior. It's a simple setting and one I feel is currently set incorrectly for most people.

PDF Support: It turns out there is already a PDF Viewer installed and FireFox just doesn't know about it. So if you tell firefox to open /user/bin/epdfview every time that'll work. Remote Desktop: Yep that's in there too, but support is console based. Please add a text file or batch file (not sure w...

PDF = Must, RDP = Pretty Please, *.cab = WINE?

RE: Cab files - those are windows files, so that's probably not practical unless they decide to and are in fact able to use WINE. I think speed has to considered when deciding to or not to use WINE. That being said I would really like to be able to use remote desktop (RDP) back to my Windows PC and ...
