  1. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu lost all my data when it locked up during a file move

  4. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu lost all my data when it locked up during a file move

    [gnome] Re: How to turn off metacity transparency???

    Yes compiz is enabled so Im guessing that it is overiding the metacity compositor settings. Yes I am using an Nvidia card but it is now 9800gx2 instead of 8800gt.

  14. [all variants] Re: Icon Stretch Idea (Possible? Maybe not. Awesome, YEA!)

    I think a better idea instead of it getting bigger maybe it could just get thicker and fatter. If you have gigs and gigs then it would look like a really fat guy ;)
