    1. In Windows 7, run System Configuration.
    2. On the Boot tab, select safe mode. You'll be...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Does apparmor in complain mode serve any security purpose?

    That is correct, as far as I know. The complain mode is only really useful when testing Apparmor profiles that you have written or amended to see the impact of the changes made to the policy without...

    In the Compiz Manager Scale Plugin, there should be an option called "Initiate Window Picker" near the top of the Bindings tab, with an icon of a computer screen next to it. That's the one you're...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Strange Things: No authentication required to update from update manager

    Don't worry. Since 11.10, the Update Manager no longer needs a password in admin accounts. It's not a sign that your install is compromised.

    [ubuntu] Re: A good time to upgrade to 11.10?

    I've been using 11.10 since it came out and, other than some slight issues in the first couple of weeks, it is now as solid as a rock for me. I'd agree with others on this thread who suggest a clean...

    Re: Unity is the worst desktop I have ever seen

    I don't see how that has changed with Unity. In fact, the "office apps and the internet" are right there on the launcher bar, visible from the moment the user logs in. If anything, things are...

    [SOLVED] Re: touchpad gestures -> app launcher

    If you want to launch programs with a mouse gesture, I'd recommend Easystroke (it's in the Software Centre), which works almost exactly like Scrybe. It doesn't come with any pre-defined gestures,...
