View Full Version : [ubuntu_studio] 1st firewire question 2nd xfce questeion

i have texas instruments firewire expresscard and the focusrite saffire pro 10.. in ubuntu studio 11.04 it seems like there is a problem because it is not recognising the interface... i tried diffrent firewire cards is well...

in ubuntu studio 11.10 the interface gets recognised, some one knows how that comes?

another question is... xfce.. after reboot i lost alll the title bars... because i did not know how to fix it, i have reinstalled the os... but know after 3 daxs the same thing happend again... is there a solution? i have now tried serveral thing like "gtk... --replace" or "compiz --replace" or "metacity --replace" nothing has worked but i got an message which says that those packages are not installed

i need to know about a solution for either 11.04 with working firewire or 11.10 with working window manager... since 2 month i am not doing anything else but run into diffrent anoing problems. i realy dont want to use windows again because i hate the microsoft logo, but if i dont have another choice... either way you look at it.. it is just not running smooth.. and if you want to produce music you need a best working system

there is one biggest joke about ubuntu studio 11.10... after the standard installation, the only grafical texteditor is the windows notepad running with wine... well, it is not as funny as missing titlebar after reboot.. those bugs are sry to say just to stupid.. but on the other hand, my other laptop with the standard ubuntu distribution which i use for internet, gaming an office runs good...

maybe i schould put windows on the studio pc and use ubuntu on the internet pc

Try this solution for your Window Manager problems:

And for your firewire issues in 11.04, you could try upgrading libffado and related packages using the KXStudio ppa:
