  1. [all variants] Re: GRUB hangs after EFI select post Mac upgrade

    Thanks Vinodh, you're right, I did not need rEFInd/rEFIt. Since the boot-repair program had already blessed the grubx64.efi, it's accessible through the "option menu" at boot like you say.

    I...
  2. [all variants] Re: GRUB hangs after EFI select post Mac upgrade

    Thank you for the response! I used gparted to remove the sda5 boot flag, now it has no flags. I'm not sure exactly what's going on, but my previously working setup had rEFIt load grub when I wanted...

    Hi, I'm having some issues with a dual boot Ubuntu 12.04 and Mac OS X 10.9.2 on a Macbook Air 5,2 (2012 13"). I had originally installed the Ubuntu partition according to the instructions on the...

    Re: Auspicious August Screenshot Thread

    I found a better background from wallbase.net, their abstract category has a lot of good stuff. To get the tabs into the status bar, I used the buftabs.js plugin for vimperator and changed a setting...

    Re: Auspicious August Screenshot Thread

    Trying out WindowLab window manager, it's mostly driven with the mouse, and is a lot of fun so far. The background isn't the most interesting, but those always change pretty frequently anyway.

    Re: Delicious December 2009 Screenshot Thread

    Running karmic on my netbook using openbox for the window manager. Just installed the surf browser [1] and am liking it a lot. I recommend it if you're in the neighborhood for a light web browser...
  9. Re: Obnoxious October 2009 Screenshot Thread( thumbnails only please)

    Thank you! It's metacity actually, although it's really easy to do in openbox if I remember right. I think if you poke around the theme file you can find the values for it, and just set them to 1,...
  10. Re: Obnoxious October 2009 Screenshot Thread( thumbnails only please)

    If anybody remembers my last desktop, they'll definitely notice I'm following a pattern haha. I started using vimperator, and gotta say, it's wicked awesome; the hint system is worth it alone. I...

    [ubuntu] Re: a cleaner software

    Although I don't suggest it without knowing what all the services and daemon's do, but you can install sysvconfig:

    sudo apt-get install sysvconfig
    It's a command line utility to help you change...
  12. Re: Serene September 2009 Screenshot Thread (thumbnails only)

    Thank you! Well, most of it is the murrina graphite compact gtk theme, and the nuove icons (I just moved back to crashbit though, I had almost forgotten how good of icons they were!).

    Re: debian lenny/stable is pointless

    The more likely reason that Debian stable can't play your media with VLC is that the codecs aren't in the free repositories, if you open the contrib and non-free repositories then you can install the...

  16. Re: Serene September 2009 Screenshot Thread (thumbnails only)

    I've gotten a new computer, so I've done a fresh install of Debian stable. It's not very exciting, using standard gnome. If anybody likes the wallpaper, I always get them from the deviant art user...
  17. Re: why doesn't everyone use a tiling window manager?

    eh, in my opinion tilers just aren't quite as efficient as using a framebuffer console,
    or with a bit of practice a binary abacus for that matter :wink:
