    Re: Ubuntu i686 idea

    Molot,

    sorry, but I can't figure out what you are trying to say. What do optimized packages for Ubuntu have to do with virtual machine software?

    It works perfectly for many people (including...

    Re: Ubuntu i686 idea

    Molot (and others),

    you have been pointed to the way to create optimized packages by Astrophobos -- or to be less friendly:

  3. Re: HOWTO: Easily open any file as root via drag & drop

    connellr,



    this won't work at all. Konqueror doesn't set the variable and AFAIK has no Nautilus-compatible scripting interface.

    It might, however, be possible to do that for KDE, too, but...

    Re: Sun JDK in Extras

    jdong,

    yes -- for a) java developers and b) users of commercial software. I need both SDKs, mostly for testing purposes and because the --target=1,4 switch doesn't produce 100% compatible code in...

    jdong,

    maybe it would be good to coordinate efforts with this guy (girl?), who provides Ubuntu java packages (JRE/SDK) for both 1.4 and 1.5 versions.

  7. Re: HOWTO: Easily open any file as root via drag & drop

    23meg and Nis,

    thanks for the nice script.

    However, it didn't work for me and I modified it a little:


    #!/bin/sh
    ### openas-root:
    ### nautilus script for opening the selected files as...

    vaskark,



    Glad to hear that, finally, it works. I'll PM ruff to edit his first message. If he doesn't reply, I'll have to open yet another "Sound Juicer with MP3 support" thread :roll:.

    vaskark,



    I tried it out now. You can test the impact of the various settings by executing a gstreamer pipeline on your command prompt:

    gst-launch-0.8 filesrc location=music.wav ! wavparse...

    Re: How to enable MP3 in Sound Juicer 2.10.0

    vaskark,

    according to the gstreamer developer documentation and various web sites, this is the way to configure gstreamer pipelines.

    vaskark,



    you can examine the available configuration options for the gstreamer-lame encoder by running

    Re: libdvdcss, java have made it into Backports

    jdong,



    I'd appreciate that, too. Adding marillat to my repositories just for two or three packages sucks hard and without hope for recovery.

    Well, I don't see the problem either -- especially since openssl already is part of Ubuntu. Alas, the debian package maintainer does not seem to share our opinion; and as hoary...
