    Re: White House Linux Migration Petition

    I personally too would have been fine with GNU/Linux being the niche market - for one, I think it brings about more freedom with regard to development, etc, if you are not answerable to a larger...

    Re: White House Linux Migration Petition

    Re: White House Linux Migration Petition

    Nobody would like to see Ubuntu or GNU/Linux be "forced" upon the masses - forcing would only serve to replace one tyrant (Microsoft) by another (us, in that event).

    Re: White House Linux Migration Petition

    Yes. In Ubuntu Land, this war goes by the name of Bug #1. I think it is very much real.

    Also, I believe there is an organization by the name of FSF, which strives towards this goal every day. In...

    I think accepting that such a petition is not useful is accepting defeat - we might as well give up and forget about Bug #1 and the like. After all, there were petitions against SOPA and PIPA which...

  11. [ubuntu] Re: Unity: can't switch between windows of same app

    Yeah now that I am back in Ubuntu, I see that ALT + <key above TAB> opens up the cycler for windows of the current application by itself. I did not however have to do anything to enable this.

    When...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Unity: can't switch between windows of same app

    Whoa whoa whoa! I hurriedly cruised through the posts - but maybe I can elaborate on markbl's advice?

    Hi all,

    I am running an up-to-date Oneiric on my Vaio VGNAR520E, and the only showstopper is Nautilus; it takes up to 15-20 seconds to start, always graying out for a few seconds in the process....

    While you are at it, pray also try the 64-bit installer if you were using the 32-bit one, and see if it gives any different results.

    [ubuntu] Re: Install prob on hp Pavillion

    If you are trying the 32-bit installer, try using the 64-bit version - that has worked for me before when the 32-bit would hang for a long time.
