    Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

    I feel no need to rush in to the 12.04 release. As I did with 11.10 I'll give it a month or so before I think about upgrading to let any gremlins be dealt with. But once I do upgrade it will be nice...

    Re: HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm

    I'm going to answer my own query. I finally figured out what was going on. Digging further into the error message output I kept looking at the issue of bitmap removal. Why was this necessary? And...

    Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

    What would be useful to me is this MATE remix tied to the Alternate install CD. I need that because of issues I have run into doing RAID setups. So having an install CD that doesn't bring the Unity...

    Seriously useful. Your scripting saved me a bunch of time and it put it all together in a very clean straightforward way. Instead of fiddling around I was able to get on with recovery of data from...

    Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

    I had to reinstall 11.10 from scratch due to a hard drive crash. So I tried this out as soon as I had 11.10 Unity up and running. Worked just like downtown in the big city! (applause)

    Re: A Gnome Fork - Mate Desktop Environment

    I Installed MATE yesterday following the latest directions for Ubuntu 11.10. 20 minutes later I had logged back in with my old Gnome2 desktop. MATE looks to be a very solid fork of Gnome2 for those...

    Re: Anouncing my Ubuntu-based Distro

    I like Xfce 4.8. It's got a lot going for it. I have it on a couple of laptops. But I still prefer Gnome2 and I must say that MATE is a very solid fork that is now quite stable. Running it on my...

    Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

    Caveat Emptor on the Neptune v2 with Mate. The Live CD/Installer is in German so be aware of that before you get started. Not a show-stopper here but a hurdle nonetheless that may make some want to...

    Looks good. I shall test-drive that on one of my older low-RAM laptops today that is currently using lubuntu and see how it runs.

    Try changing your "Monitor" section to this. You can comment out what you have.

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Generic Monitor"
    Option "DPMS"
    HorizSync 28-51
    VertRefresh 43-60

    Or...

    I don't know. I started with more instructions in my xorg.conf and had to delete things to get it working on 8.10. If your Tecra has a Cyberblade video start by using the xorg.conf I provided...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: HOWTO: Get proper video resolution with trident video card and Ubuntu 8.04

    If you're continuing to get a parsing error then something isn't in there right. Did you replace the "Monitor" section with what I last posted? Look closely at it. Maybe you can post your...

    My apologies. I wasn't online with my laptop so the code wasn't cut and pasted. I have corrected it above to exactly what is working in my laptop. The "Monitor" section was wrong. It should have...

    I didn't wind up having to go to the lengths suggested by Temüjin, but it did take a little grunt-work to get my screen resolution to 1024x768.

    There's no "Screens & Graphics" tool (displayconfig-gtk) in the Intrepid 8.10 release, regardless of which Ubuntu flavour you are using. It has been shelved because it's supposed to be no longer...

    Well done young man! I put 8.04 on my old Satellite Pro laptop this morning and had "midget screen" syndrome on the Cyberblade display. But you solved it, and it worked like a charm for me too. It...
