  1. [ubuntu] Re: HP Laptop Refuses to Wake Up After Improper Suspension

    It is good knowing that Suspend mode doesn't commit a write to the hard drive, so if my HDD hasn't failed, it should be fine.

    In the first two weeks, I have tried all of those things, as well as...
  2. [ubuntu] HP Laptop Refuses to Wake Up After Improper Suspension

    I'm currently typing this from a new Windows 8 notebook, and I am in serious need of help; weeks of research has helped me learn a lot, but not enough to actually fix the problem I have. Three weeks...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: QT Programs Not Conforming to GTK Themes on Unity

    Okay, so it turns out Numix Bluish had a dead useless GTKRC file for GTK2 theming, so everything was going to default Ambiance. (Thankfully, I wasn't experiencing QT theming problems.)

    So I copied...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: QT Programs Not Conforming to GTK Themes on Unity

    I've reviewed that page as well, but a lot of those are for KDE users, and KDE's system settings manager doesn't play nice with Unity, according to reviews. KDE sure is sounding more appealing,...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: QT Programs Not Conforming to GTK Themes on Unity

    Ouch, I completely missed the lacking quotation mark. Normally, directories wrapped in quotations are okay with spaces in folder names, but I still went ahead and removed the spaces in a local Home...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: QT Programs Not Conforming to GTK Themes on Unity

    That's a good thought, Frogs Hair. I'll list what I tried.

    I added this line to my .profile file. I also created a similar file named .xinitrc with this line for the heck of it.


    #apply gtk2.0...
  7. [SOLVED] QT Programs Not Conforming to GTK Themes on Unity

    I have tried several different solutions across the Internet, and I still can't get Skype, VLC, Pidgin, or any other QT dependent app to be consistent with my GTK theme. (I use Numix Bluish, a mod of...
  8. Re: Will 14.04 become the 'MSVista' of Ubuntu?

    It's kinda funny nobody's equating Windows 8 as a criterion for the worst, in this case. :P Which is a good thing. Windows 8 is faster than 7 and only changes the desktop experience, rather than...
  9. Re: Question and Request to Spread the Word about Bestbuy

    That is pretty sad, WinterMadness, I thought it was a given for them to ask someone else onsite who actually knows what the customer wants. I've seen that a lot at RadioShack. I also talked to one at...

    Downloading it right now so I have it for later. Good thing I have a re-writable mini-DVD to burn Trusty Tahr onto, a typical CD-R couldn't hold this one.

    Re: Ubuntu 14.04 Release Date

    I'd like to wish you Happy Birthday too, SanteFe! Not everyday your favorite OS releases a new version on the same day as your birth date, it's pretty convenient.



    That is a huge relief to me,...

    Re: Ubuntu 14.04 Release Date

    A specific time would be nice too. I got over my case of butt hurt over the sudden realization that 14.04 was the next LTS, so I'd like to have it downloaded and burned to a disc myself on release...

    Re: Ubuntu 14.04 Release Date

    Okay, that had me in a slight panic there for a moment. I had still thought LTS were every three years because of 8.04 LTS, and it was some time before I got to install 10.04. (So long that 12.04 was...

    Re: Ubuntu 14.04 Release Date

    Wait, this is an LTS release? When did LTS's start getting pushed out in two years time? I've been on 12.04 since its final beta to avoid breaking possibly everything during an upgrade every six...
  15. Re: Ubuntu screenshot in Yahoo Tech article

    People like that must extract their knowledge on electronics from the Fiction section of a book store. I know relatives like this, and it outright disgusts me.

    The only reason the family PC ever...
  16. Re: Ubuntu screenshot in Yahoo Tech article

    I've only been using Ubuntu since 8.04, but I probably would have loved and hated 5.xx versions at the same time. It's easy to take auto-mounting drives for granted these days.

  17. Re: Ubuntu screenshot in Yahoo Tech article

    Suggesting Ubuntu, the most user-friendly distro out there, is harder to use than Windows, is very uninformed. I had a far easier time installing Ubuntu on my new hard drive than I would have with...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: GVFS-Backends Reports a Crash With iPod Touch 5G Plugged In

    Well, nevermind, installing the latest patch for Ubuntu 12.04 off of Synaptic fixed the crash. (Edit : It was barely a new version number, 1.12.2.ubuntu1.3, versus 1.12.2.ubuntu1.2, but definitely a...
  19. [ubuntu] GVFS-Backends Reports a Crash With iPod Touch 5G Plugged In

    Hey, everyone! My younger cousin recently replaced his iPod Touch 2G, (Which worked out-of-the-box with Banshee on Ubuntu! Major props to the Open-Source community on that one.) with an iPod 5G....
  20. Re: Vote for GOG to add Linux versions of games they sell

    They've been willing for quite some time, it was all a matter of having the right strategy for supporting Linux that was financially viable, and realistic to maintain for them, as a business.

    So...

    Slight bump because I feel like I came a little closer to resolving it. I noticed Unity's transitions lag more when there was a lot of spam from OSD Notifier. (Skype messages, IRC, Pidgin, Rhythmbox,...

    [ubuntu] Unity/Compiz Slowing Down Over Time

    Mostly posting this thread out of curiosity, encase it has been encountered before.

    Unity honestly runs great on my HP laptop's hardware with Intel graphics, but I've noticed that after resuming...

    Re: Vote for Linux games on GOG.COM!!!

    That explains everything. They want to provide Linux support, but they also want to support the games and guarantee they work too, so it's not economically practical for the moment.

    Re: Janiform January Screen-Shot Thread

    I guess they play lots of games and need Microsoft Office? Ouch, you could probably get a USB HDD for Ubuntu when you use the PC. It's hard to be comfortable using Windows for me now, I had to go...
