  1. [ubuntu] Re: Change log on screen to allow entering username?

    Glad to hear that! Cheers! :)
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Change log on screen to allow entering username?

    Try this -



    vim /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
    greeter-hide-users=true


    This should allow you to enter the username instead of selecting from a list. Hope this works! :D

    [ubuntu] Re: Can I password protect Ubuntu on USB?

    Re: Good single-player offline game

    I have played Nexuiz once. I am not that big on games, but I liked it a lot! I know it worked for me on Fedora - should not be a problem on Ubuntu either, I guess.

    Thanks CharlesA - Guess I should not have been so lazy!

    feralchild, I suggest you look in to Wine! You should be able to install it from Software Center.... may be.

    My one day experience of Xubuntu 13.04 has also been very positive! After test drives in VMs, I finally did a bare metal installation last night. So far so good! :)

    Just for your information - you can set up apt-get sources for Oracle Virtualbox instead of using *deb files. Updating becomes a lot easier! :)

    I agree!

    Although, I use linux completely now, I never had any problems with Windows 7 when I was using it. It was pretty smooth. I had fairly good hardware always though.
