    Re: At Wits' End - AMD Catalyst Control Center

    That link is a great resource for Quantal Quetzal (12.10). I was able to use some of the information in Precise Pangolin 12.04 LTS, especially to add XvBA to XBMC, which seems to be the appropriate...

    Re: At Wits' End - AMD Catalyst Control Center

    Catalyst has been able to resize the screen for me:



    On a 19" LCD monitor with VGA,
    On a 37" LED TV with HDMI,
    On both the former connected and resized correctly at the same time,

    Thanks LewisTM! I will try that.

    I also got a good laugh from your signature, so thanks for that as well!
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Desktop Alternatives for Precise Pangolin 12.04

    Larry, I probably will give it another try.

    I've been experimenting more with Precise Pangolin, and although I have resolved all the speed issues with Unity 2D, there are other things that I don't...

    Re: At Wits' End - AMD Catalyst Control Center

    So, since this thread has been successful for at least two of us, it might be useful for other users who might also be at their wits' end (like seande), and might also find this post through a search...

    Re: At Wits' End - AMD Catalyst Control Center

    Been there! Done that! I think it's probably not very hard to figure out how to undo stuff that has been done and may not have worked as intended, such as the "purge" command I showed above, but for...

    Re: At Wits' End - AMD Catalyst Control Center

    Thank you very much! This also worked for me so your translation is obviously quite good! Note that I had to:


    Choose the option to run in terminal (not just run) when I double-clicked, since it...

    Thanks ibjsb4! I may not be a "real man" apparently, and you just saved me the trouble of searching for myself! ... :KS

    [ubuntu] Re: Clicking Noise From Speakers

    You do have sound though, after removing Pulse, right? Otherwise, when I reinstalled Pulse after removing it, it then worked fine.

  11. [ubuntu] Re: Memory upgrade for an older computer and a video problem

    Thanks for the update johnu1960.

    In your shoes, if that is your machine in the link I posted earlier, I would try the latest Long Term Support version of Ubuntu, which is Precise Pangolin 12.04...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Desktop Alternatives for Precise Pangolin 12.04

    Thanks Cheesemill. I'll take a look at that, but I'm not certain I want a classic Gnome desktop with no enhancements. It's not that I don't like Unity 3D, it's that I find the delays on my hardware...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Desktop Alternatives for Precise Pangolin 12.04

    Thanks for commenting, drfox. Part of this may be personal perceptions, or just not knowing how to do certain things, but this is what I remember about my trials with XFCE:

  14. [all variants] Re: Which 32 bit PC Card adapter for Compact Flash?

    No news, unfortunately.

    I'm delayed in my efforts since I seem to have wrecked my best Compact Flash card. I was using it in an attempt to boot from an IDE to CF adapter in another laptop, and now...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Desktop Alternatives for Precise Pangolin 12.04

    That's great news ... I think I'll try Unity 2D to see if I can get used to it. I like the novelty and some of the shortcut options are actually better for me than before, so I like that too (the...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Desktop Alternatives for Precise Pangolin 12.04

    Not before the end of Long Term Support for Precise Pangolin, in 2017, right ... or is that something completely different?
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Desktop Alternatives for Precise Pangolin 12.04

    A few questions, and observations:


    I was wondereing about MATE and Cinnamon, but then I wondered why I wouldn't just use Mint instead of Ubuntu in that case. Is there a reason to choose one...

    The issue:

    I started using Ubuntu in 2009 and have been using it ever since. What I like about it:

    Looks promising, heyup. I might try that out later.

    In the meantime, I get around my transfer issues by simply uploading stuff to the free (for 5GB) Google Drive. From there I can transfer to or...

    Great idea, and good for you! I'm not great with terminal commands, I just use this O.S. blindly! Most of them make little or no sense to me, so I don't feel like I know what they're doing. This one...
