Limiting Web Browsing to local network only

Fri, 2017-12-01 19:01

Situation I'm trying to work around. I want, if possible to make so that the web browser can only go to sites/locations on my local network and cannot go to the public web. Yet, at the same time I don't want to disable (if possible) curl and wget from the command line. Any thoughts? I may be asking too much and I may have to lose the command line as well. But Nothing ventured nothing gained. :)

Issue: Steam font is ugly

Fri, 2017-12-01 17:26

Is there any way to get the same font sizes and style as the Steam client for Windows? Compared to Windows, the font on Linux is a lot bigger. It's not blurry or anything, but it just doesn't feel right. I've tried making a custom Steam skin and adjusting the font sizes, but it still looks wacky. I know there's a fix for this since about 1-2 years ago, it randomly started working after I restarted my PC, but I had no clue why / or how to replicate it.

Completely new to both Linux and reddit

Fri, 2017-12-01 14:09

So, I am looking for a Linux disto that allows me to customise the look and feel easily, whilst being lightweight on system resources. Windows 10 when I first got the laptop I’m using was taking over 70 percent cpu and ate up my 4gb ram , I’ve done lots to reduce this but at about 1.2ghz I want to put new life into my laptop with Linux and customise it. When I install Linux I want to achieve: -I want to be able to open to a simple lock screen and unlock with my password, or guest user. -Give my desktop with circular icons and a Mac OS ish dock. -Windows like multitasking the snap windows -Improve performance and remove unnecessary connections and keep it secured -Security/malware improvements over windows (optional)

I am aware there are distorts that are beginner friendly that can achieve at least two of these but are there any that can allow me to achieve all of them; relative ease? Or a distribution that will give a good platform for me to customise the icons, dock, but still keep security in mind, so no unnecessary connections and receive updates

task scheduler messagebox for fedora?

Fri, 2017-12-01 11:56

Hi all,

I am on Windows 10 and have task scheduler. I input 'msg' and then in the next box I type * mymessage... I can set a certain time and day for these messages to display.

Can I do anything like this on Fedora? or is there any software?

Help with a advice on a desktop distro that will run on USB or secondary OS for a (AMD C-5) 1GB processor & 4GB RAM

Fri, 2017-12-01 08:11

Currently I am using Windows 10. This computer is just under 10 years old.

I've done some digging in the FAQ and google but nothing is sticking out for me. I've read ubuntu 10.10 might be good or some puppy version of linux.

Ideally I'd be able to put something nice on up to a 8 GB USB and run linux. Or the second option would be a dual install of windows and a linux OS/

I would be greatly appreciative of any help. I want to free myself from windoze chains. Please help point me in a direction so I take the first right steps fellow computer lovers.
