    [xubuntu] Re: Overwriting Win8

    I've been reading the posts and help guides on installing on a UEFI machine, but they seem to all talk about installing alongside Windows. I have a brand-new Toshiba Satellite 850 laptop with Win8...

    And, oddly, the problem does not occur when running the live CD or the installer. It's only after installation that the issue arises.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.10 and nVidia cards

    [ubuntu] Re: Low graphics mode

    Seems there are only the two of us, pesho21. There are many posts about xorg and the display manager having issues related to the nvidia video driver, but none about the Intel video driver in 12.10.

    Hi ajgreeny. It's not the cover art display that I don't see, it's Album Art Search that I can't find. It seems to be installed, because it's on the list of available plugins and I have checked it....
