  1. [SOLVED] Re: Help choosing mini-laptop: 1215N, 1215B, 1201PN or 1215P

    Just to throw in my two cents:

    As an owner of an ASUS 1215n, and with friends on Arch using new laptops using Optimus NG-ION chipsets, we've discovered a project called bumblebee, which allows you...

    [ubuntu] Re: Some little annoying things in 10.04

    1. In System > Preferences > Power Management, have a look in the "On Mains Power" tab. There should be an option called "Set display brightness to:". Move the slider to the far right. That should...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: SMPlayer - AAC audio (Matroska) - Wrong automatic codec (FFAAC, should pick FAAD)

    Aha! After some investigating, the problem seems to lie in the version of MPlayer that's packaged with the VA-API patches. I was using the April mplayer-vaapi release; on using the February release...

    [ubuntu] Re: Video thumbnails won't load in Lucid Lynx

    I've encountered the same problem. I've bypassed it for now by using ffmpegthumbnailer. It took about 15 minutes of tedious adding of keys to gconf, but it 'works'.

    I'm using SMPlayer 0.6.8 (SVN r3213), with MPlayer SVN r31027 (compiled with the vaapi patches). Oh, and I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 (x64_64), and my hardware specs are in my signature.

    You can never be *absolutely safe*.

    However, I've gone for several years on:

    Re: why 64 and why shiretoko?

    Surely all you have to do to make your Bank's online service recognise Shiretoko is to change the key general.useragent.extra.firefox from Shiretoko/3.5 to Firefox/3.5 in about:config...

    [SOLVED] Re: Intel Celeron Dual Core - 64 or 32 bit?

    Yes, indeed it will. AMD came up with the 64-bit extention to the 32-bit architecture first (afaik), so Ubuntu has opted to call their 64-bit release "amd64". The release will work on processors made...

    [SOLVED] Re: Intel Celeron Dual Core - 64 or 32 bit?

    To be perfectly honest, nowadays you might as well install 64-bit Linux. There was a time when there were serious compatibility issues, but everything works now (the only thing that comes to mind is...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Help updating graphics driver (Intel G45 Express Chipset)

    The "git" protocol allows people to get their hands on bleeding-edge source code, rather than precompiled packages. As such it won't work in apt.
