Linux Mint: Network Manager Headache

The network manager unconnects randomly. It's annoying during streams or online games. I have tried to install wicd, but cannot make the network manager inactive.

Removing the darn thing results in a dark screen. It's almost a Windows blue screen of death experience. And I've had this experience twice.

So now I'm left with a blank screen, gde hangs.

What are my options? Trying:

  • Install KDE
  • apt-get install kde-full
If that does not work the only option is to reinstall the entire system. For the third time.

Perhaps the HP EliteBook favors another Linux flavour?

The trick worked. After installing KDE wicd runs like a charm .. in KDE that is.

I've experimented with automation, here's the first Gulp file (yea, it's work in progress).

GULP - watch and compile code 

File: gulpfile.js
Version: 0.1
Tags: Sass watch, Sass compile
By: Per Thykjaer Jensen
Url: http://multimusen.dk/

## Howto

 1. Download plugin
 2. Require the plugin
 3. Define a gulp.task

Run the task either:

 * :: gulp [taskname]
 * or add the task to the gulp.task default and run via :: gulp

Best Practise

Separate your working files into a src/ and a dest/ directory. 
This is my first playground, so the pressent file 
structure is a darn mess.


//'use strict';

// === Gulps ===
var gulp = require('gulp');
var sass = require('gulp-sass');

// sass compiler
gulp.task('sass', function () {
  return gulp.src('./sass/**/*.scss')
    .pipe(sass.sync().on('error', sass.logError))

// watcher
gulp.task('sass:watch', function () {
  gulp.watch('./sass/**/*.scss', ['sass']);

// sass lint
var sassLint = require('gulp-sass-lint');
gulp.task('sassLint', function () {

// minify images
var imagemin = require('gulp-imagemin');
gulp.task('imageMin', function () {

// === Javascript Lint ===
var jslint = require('gulp-jslint');
var jshint = require('gulp-jshint');
gulp.task('lintJs', function () {
    return gulp.src(['js/*.js'])
        .pipe(jshint({ /* lint placeholder */ }))


// === Jade Template Engine ===
jade = require('gulp-jade');

// run this task by typing in gulp jade in CLI
gulp.task('jade', function() {
    return gulp.src('src/templates/**/*.jade')
        .pipe(jade()) // pip to jade plugin

// === Default ===
gulp.task('default', [
  'lintJs'], function() {
