    I updated my X61 Tablet and it can no longer display the login screen. The display is just blank. The loading cursor flicked on and off for a moment, but that is it. Switching to another screen...

    Re: Increasing battery life on laptops

    Something changed in 8.10 that greatly reduces the battery life from 8.04. It does appear that whatever it was hasn't been fixed for 9.04. An old topic about this is here:...

    I just installed 9.04 alpha 5, updated, and installed a bunch of programs from Add/Remove (took at least 6 hours). I was slowly going through all my options in the Control Center and played around a...

    Re: Converting From Ext4 To Ext3 Question

    Yes, I understand the buffering issues with ext4. And when I'm on battery power, I prefer all writes to be stored in memory as long as possible. What I don't understand is why all of Firefox's...

    Re: Converting From Ext4 To Ext3 Question

    Good point, I think I should reinstall everything. Is there a good way to extract the selected programs from Add/Remove Programs?

    Converting From Ext4 To Ext3 Question

    I'm fed up with data loss on ext4. Ubuntu completely freezes for me about once every two or three days. I prefer to leave all my apps open (Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunburd, Xpad, etc...) but I am now...

    Thanks, that worked for me too. Though, my sound buttons still work.
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Update manager keeps installing 2.6.27-11 kernel

    They shouldn't be installing different updates with the same titles.
  11. [ubuntu] Re: 2.6.27-11-generic upgrade broke screen brigtness controls on thinkpad x61t

    I have the same laptop and the same problem. I also have the repeat installation issue described here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1047919

    I've been booting into 2.6.27-9 in order to...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: gnome-power-manager vs. powertop: battery life discrepancy

    Sorry, I can't help you with getting the script working, but I can confirm the power issues. In 8.04, my X61 Tablet had just over 4 hours of battery life. In 8.10, it only gets 2.4 hours. I can't...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Changed Permissions on External Drive, GNOME died, and Now Cannot Login

    That allowed GNOME to come up and me login. My desktop was missing, but making it executable fixed that. I was going to start fresh with 8.10 when it comes out, so I'll just skip the permission...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Changed Permissions on External Drive, GNOME died, and Now Cannot Login

    That sounds like it could be the problem. I didn't change the execute field in the permissions tab. Just assumed it wouldn't chagne it since I didn't change it...
    The output is
    drw-rw-rw- 21 root...

    I have a 250GB external USB drive that I use to make backups. In the past, I've put on it random copies of folders (half the time as root). Today I copied my entire home folder to it. I wanted to...
