    Re: Banshee and Chromium broken after latest update.

    If Maverick had reached beta or even had a single pre-release made then I would agree, but we're currently 10 days before even the first alpha release. They've made no request for testers - it's...

    Re: OpenOffice Dropped For Netbook Edition?

    I think it makes sense to drop OpenOffice - it's big, heavy and the UI doesn't work too well on netbooks. However I think work should be put into abiword and the like. Otherwise a user is pretty...

    Re: Nautilus looks ›odd‹ now.

    To those confused about switching to and from breadcrumbs - Control + L gets you location entry, escape returns to breadcrumbs. I'm not sure if these are mentioned anywhere in the app or I figured...

    Re: Suggest an MS Paint replacement for Linux

    Unless you want to specifically draw pixel by pixel (which I think is of limited use), I find Inkscape a lot easier to use for an equivalent task then paint and non-destructive editing makes it far...

    Are you seriously angry about something this specific? There are far greater inequalities out there - people who've received bad teachers, people who've been sent to a bad school, people who've...

    Re: get more themes online button

    I've already commented on the bug, but I feel this is a problem with art.gnome.org, not gnome-appearance properties -

    I think perhaps the answer to this is to invest some time in art.gnome.org...

    Re: The new icon on the Quit menu

    This confusion is because the icons no longer signify the logout/turn off option. The menu has been integrated with instant messaging features - both new icons mean that you are offline. The grey...

    Re: Second Art Drop, Who's Excited?

    I'm not entirely sure if you're being sarcastic or not but this is ridiculous. Linux doesn't exist in a bubble - it has to compete with these OSs, Canonical hopes to draw users from them and it's...

    Re: Second Art Drop, Who's Excited?

    I have no issue with the relative lack of change in Ubuntu's appearance - it's good for branding and while I wouldn't keep the default I don't think it's offensively bad or anything close to that. ...

    It's the new Gnome default, the developers have decreed it less cluttered.

    Re: Why give packages silly names?

    The package information on launchpad seems to explain this - rather than being somebody's nickname it's a name that is appropriate if obscure, and gives the package some sort of identity and makes it...

    Re: Metacity Compositing

    I don't think that's quite correct - it's possible to composite in software and metacity does that when there's no hardware texture-from-pixmap support i believe. There's no real slowdown either way...

    [xubuntu] Re: speed up epiphany

    It depends on which version of XUbuntu you're using. Personally, I'd give Firefox 3.1 beta 2 and midori a go - depending on your hardware, one or both of those could be noticeably faster (one uses a...

    Re: Will Jaunty have a new default theme?

    XUL has actually made vast leaps and bounds forward - Mozilla have made countless changes to their underlying architecture to accommodate GTK+ integration, and I now find that only very exotic widget...
  15. Re: Possible bug/error on upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04

    This isn't really a bug - these lines correspond to post-release updates, which are obviously not applicable to Jaunty since it has not yet been released. If you disable security and updates in...
