    Morning Rich, I found your site by relentless browsing for an answer for- “how to widen body of elegant grunge, or narrow the left hand sidebar” One of your posts (way back in 2011) explained how you did this, but it was a bunch of code which may as well be Chinese for me. Is there any way for me to do this without knowing code??
    Thank you,

    Not really… I might suggest having a friend who knows something about CSS work on it (trade him/her a beer?). It’s actually not all that hard, but of course you’d have to know a thing or two about editing files and such. Note that I’d really like to get the comments to be wider too.

    Good morning,
    I just got a new desktop to dedicate Oracle Linux and 12cR2. I was able to work on the oracle db fine in windows, but now it’s a bit more challenging. The install went smoothly, but now all the executables are located in the bin folder. I searched all over to find an answer to this and didn’t have any luck so I’m here…. is there an easy way to have Oracle Linux build a set of program group icons the way ms windows puts a nice folder of executables in the start folder?

    Thank you

    The icons on the desktop, or really in the applications menu, are more for things like SQL Developer instead of the actual database itself.
