This great distro, SparkyLinux, have the software that I need including the complete LibreOffice Suite along with C and C++ compilers. All of these software are already included in the ISO image making these applications ready at hand after installing the live system to my computer. Hence, there's no need to manually install these programs from the command line.
To everyone involved in the development of SparkyLinux, I would say that all of you did a very good job. Keep this up.
Please continue to include the said applications in every ISO release, whether it is stable or rolling.
I was curious as to whether this distribution would ever offer a semi-rolling version, similar to what Sparky Linux does with their semi-rolling version. Let me know if you need assistance with a website; I might be able to help.
Can you give an example? Where do you want to upload images? (I upload to sharing sites with a browser. Ftp/sftp would work in other cases. I drag/drop onto an NFS mounted drive. I assume there is some other use-case but I can't think what it would be.).
and build it from source. This has been indeed painless and successful for me up to now. The resulting .deb file i either install directly with dpkg, or rather put it in my local repository, so that apt can see it after

I recently purchased an external DVD burner for my Sparky-running Lenovo T410, but it is not functioning. While the handbook makes no mention of Linux, the box claims that it is supported. Although I can't be sure, I believe the burner is the problem.
Although it detects the presence of my brand-new CD, it is unable to mount or open it. I tried a couple DVDs, but it is clear from the sounds that it keeps attempting ineffectively to read it.
