librreoffice and pdf?

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 28 years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	is there anybody in the linux community who can clue me in
	on how to print a pdf file without a few heaps  of short, fat,
	black lines?

	I used libreoffice to get my fancy Brother color+mono printer 
	to output C code {or plain-text}.  anything pdf,   nada.
	libreoffice gets increasing complex and I am lost.  I *did*
	use the pdftohtml utility; that output text and where was 
	graphics:: garbage.

	thanks in advance,

	gary

timer app?

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 28 years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	guys,

	is there any "timer" application that I can set to notify me 
	every, say, 3600 or 4500 [ or any N ].   my  system admin flew
	last summer and installed fedora-20.  it's among the poorer
	excuses for a linux distro { IMHO }....  I'm more used to the
	ubuntu flavor.  I remember some app that allowed me to notify
	me every [interval].  graphically.  

	ive tried korganizer of course but I am missing at least one 
	PIM  suite that I can't get installed, the Akonadi suite [??],
	or *some* dependency, but I'm drawing a blank.

	I could hack something in C, but if I'm away from my desk when
	the program rang its BEL, blah blah, blah...  .

	tx much,

	gary,
	  whose shoulder is starting to fall off

	ps: I remember using a who/where/what/????/  that had a ~/.dot 
	file and popped up a gtk+ rectangle.  "yum" says "huh?"... .

Intel Edison events

FYI, 2 upcoming events from Intel, at SoDo MakerSpace.

It appears Edison runs Linux, at least Yocto 1.6.

And in addition to Mac/Win, Intel provides Linux tools.

hopeless? or nonsense? regarding firefox, tabs and new ffox window

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 28 years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	guys,

	frequently--maybe daily--when I press the "+" [far right], firefox
	won't open a new tab.  instead, a new window opens; Then if/when I
	use google on the new window, it opens yet another window at the
	search page(s) I typed in.  in order to go back to *just  one*

	firefox window, I have to reboot and get  my main page set up
	again.  &c.  I think ihave Pref->Tabs set correctly.  is there
	anything else I ccan do to strick with *one* ff window and *only*
	tabs?

	tia ....

Volunteer work

Hi Guys,
Any chance that anybody knows of a volunteer position, preferably in
computer science?
My son needs to earn some volunteer time for school.
I suggested that he look for a position correlating with his computer
science obsession. Things like PC repair, data mungling, Cad design,
stuff like that.

Any suggestions will be helpful.
