    [ubuntu] Re: general experience with ubuntu 14.04

    I never upgrade. ALWAYS do a clean install. Before you jump out of this frying pan I'd STRONGLY recommend backing up your data and doing a clean install from scratch. Make a note of your installed...
  2. Re: Be Careful who you Trust - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr)

    I'm not a gamer, so I have the luxury of choosing harware that supports full OSS drivers. I have a Core i7 Quad machine with Intel graphics. Ubuntu 14.04 works perfectly!

    [ubuntu] Re: Empathy will not let me add an account

    Have you done anything non-standard with your HOME directory? I found (by chance) that Empathy needs your HOME to be exactly per the default install, ie /home/userid anything else and it won't let...

    Thanks @rsavage. You of course will realise I spent many, many, (wife-annoying) hours trying to get this machine to run, it was sweet under 10.04. I'm glad to hear 12.04 can now run, at least there's...

    Re: Learning to program

    I would say find a project you really want to do and then work out the best tools and learn those. Almost all of my coding has been on one task, for which I have always had a passion. Started writing...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Easier in bash, python, C ? Which is quickest?

    Python, absolutely no question! Look at the 'time' module (part of the built in modules) It will handle all the conversions and the rest is just maths.

    Re: Clementine

    I always just go to tools, preferences, behaviour and uncheck the tickbox for 'show tray icon' since clementine integrates nicely with the volume applet anyway.

    Webapps

    Am I the only person on the forum looking at these? In 13.10 I found the webapp feature quite useful; nice integration with the dock and the panel for Facebook, Livemail, Gmail and others.

    One thing I've noticed is that the webapps don't (yet) integrate properly like they did in 13.10: there is no 'active' arrow in the dock against Gmail or Facebook when those webpages are open, and...

    [ubuntu] Re: 13.10 Crashing Daily Like Vista Did

    To install elementary you'd have to wipe your HD or repartition anyway, so you might as well reinstall 13.10. Elementary is based on 12.04 so it's a bit of a backward step.
    Personally, I never use...
