  1. Re: Mixer applet for karmic that doesn't depend on pulse

    Thank you so much! I second this.

    The packages you need to install are python-alsaaudio and python-gnome2-extras.

  2. Re: Mixer applet for karmic that doesn't depend on pulse

    ALSA is the actual sound driver. Pulseaudio sits on top of it. Annoys me to no end when people talk about Pulse vs ALSA like they do the same thing.

    Also... I'd really appreciate an option to have...
  3. Re: Is it even possible to get a laptop without a widescreen?

    This is true. The irony is that I was able to buy a normal 4:3 LCD for my desktop this month, but I can't find a laptop with a screen like that. (Though I'd continue to buy 4:3 screens for my desktop...
  4. Re: Is it even possible to get a laptop without a widescreen?

    There are lots of people on Dell's IdeaStorm clamoring for 4:3 to return to laptops. They think there's no market for 4:3 laptops anymore, despite thousands of people requesting it. (At least I can...
  5. Re: Is it even possible to get a laptop without a widescreen?

    Show me any NEW laptop without a widescreen. I have looked for a couple of years and have not seen any since 2006.

  6. Is it even possible to get a laptop without a widescreen?

    Seriously, come on. I can't find ANY new laptop without a widescreen anymore. I don't like wide screens. They aren't very useful for the majority of computing tasks. It's suddenly as if all laptops...

    [SOLVED] Re: Is my old fat monitor (CRT) bad for me?

    Eh, I just think LCDs are more readable. Too bad it's getting harder to find a non-widescreen LCD anymore.

    Re: New Open Office UI design feedback

    I tried the Java-based prototype that was posted a few weeks ago, and I hated it. I don't like the ribbon, and it looks like they're just trying to copy Microsoft now.

    Re: GNOME vs KDE

    I have come to prefer GNOME after being a KDE fan for years. What happened? KDE 4 happened. Did they not learn from Netscape's mistake of doing a complete rewrite all at once? To make matters worse,...
  11. Poll: Re: Will Ubuntu drop Firefox for the Webkit based Epiphany in the near future?

    I don't think so, especially now that with 3.5, it's become as fast as Opera. Speed was my main issue with Firefox before 3.5 came out.

    I'm glad I got their 1525 before they decided switching the screen to the even-shorter 1366768 was a good idea. Urgh, widescreens suck, but at least mine has a little more vertical room.

    I'd jump...

    OpenOffice.org also can do HTML, but it's not necessarily anything you'd want to upload. I also tried Quanta, but it's a KDE program.
