    [ubuntu] Re: Flash games slower than in Windows?

    You know, I thought I had installed that already. But I went through it again, and sure enough I have a new filename under "about:plugins" and much improved performance.

    [ubuntu] Flash games slower than in Windows?

    I dual-boot Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) and Win 7, both 64-bit. There's a flash game I like to play ( that runs perfectly in Win 7, but is slow and choppy under...

    [ubuntu] Re: Studio XPS 1340

    Have you activated "Broadcom STA wireless driver" in the Hardware Drivers settings? I have the same laptop with the same card, and mine worked after I did that.

    I'm running the Karmic beta on my new 1340. For video I activated version 185 of the NVIDIA driver, and for wireless the Broadcom STA driver works great. I'm not sure if my card is the 1515, but...

    Yeah, exactly the same thing here. It's terribly annoying, too...I can't get any work done with that kind of distraction.

    Hi all,

    I have a Dell XPS m1210 laptop and the fan is (almost) permanently on when running Jaunty.

    I have installed i8kutils and want to specify that the fan only comes on if the CPU reaches X...
  10. Thread: Font weirdness.

    by EricDB

    [gnome] Re: Font weirdness.

    This has been driving me nuts for a long time, too. I can confirm that it's related to hinting, but changing from full to medium or slight did nothing to help--only disabling hinting completely got...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Install virtualization and reuse dual boot Windows?

    I'm looking for this answer, too. I have no XP media, but my notebook does have a "restore partition" that I can use to revert to WinXP.

    Could I do that, then install Ubuntu in a dual-boot...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Memory Stick (TI 5-in-1 Multimedia Card Reader)

    I'd like to hear an answer for this, too. I used to be able to read MS Pro sticks on my laptop under XP, but under Ubuntu I get zero response when plugging one in. SD cards work fine.
  13. [gnome] gnome-main-menu freezes desktop (but not system)

    8.10, fresh install, two weeks old.

    I got rid of the default panel menu and replaced it with gnome-main-menu, to conserve panel space. However, once in a while, clicking on the main menu icon...

  15. [ubuntu] Re: Recent Kernel Update, Inspiron E1505 Wifi Light flashes..

    I noticed another problem, too, which two of my Ubuntu-using friends also had. My university's WPA2 wireless network just wouldn't show up in NetworkManager, even though plenty of other wireless...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Recent Kernel Update, Inspiron E1505 Wifi Light flashes..

    My light is flashing too, right after doing today's updates. It's seriously annoying, and I hope there's a fix.
  17. [ubuntu] Keyboard/touchpad unresponsive on resume, everything else runs normally

    Sometimes, maybe 10-20% of the time, my keyboard and touchpad are unresponsive after resuming from suspend. Everything else on the computer is fine--the wireless connects automatically, and anything...

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox Takes Over Full Screen - why?

    This has always been the case for me--I thought it was by design. I wish I could keep my panel visible. Any idea what the fix could be?

    Yeah, that's what I've been doing...but it's easy to forget and just copy them straight to the network storage, where they're visible but unreadable to anyone but me.

    I was hoping there was a way...

  24. [ubuntu] Slow to find wireless networks after suspend/resume

    After my laptop resumes from sleep, it seems like it takes much longer now under Hardy than it used to with Gutsy to find and connect to a wireless network.

    Currently, when I create files on my NAS at home (which is NTFS), by default the other computers in my house do not have permission to read them. This can be quite inconvenient. Is there a way I...
