    I'd vote Scribus too. The only potential problem is that (as far as I know) it doesn't open .pub files, so if you have an old file you use as a template you'll need to either convert it (which is...

    I strongly suspect that any DRM bugs added to Linux would fall in one of two camps: (1) reverse-engineered and GPLed, or (2) restrictively licenced and therefore difficult to include by default in a...

    Thanks for the replies, PAE it is then.

    I admit that amount of swap will be overkill for my desktop system, but there is (some) method in my madness. :p I'll have 2 disks on separate IDE...

    It's a few years old but works, maybe someone can suggest something more up-to-date.

    I think what you need to do is extract the file to stdout and pipe it to the command you want, something like

    A few thoughts

    1. If mint's running that slowly you might have a graphics driver problem, in which case it would be trying to do all those fancy desktops effects without any hardware acceleration. The result can...
