    [other] Re: Does System76 accept American Express?

    About two years ago, I physically watched someone place an order with their AmEx card. So at one time, yes, they did. I have no idea if things have changed.

    Is there a reason you didn't just enable the non-free repository and install firmware-iwlwifi? I thought, at least in Squeeze (current Stable), that was where the drivers for the most (all?) Intel...

    [ubuntu] Re: How to transfer a binary file via minicom?

    I just had to do this: I ignored minicom and catted the file directly to the serial port:


    cat binfile > /dev/ttyUSB0

    [ubuntu] Re: Third Monitor on Serval Pro 15"

    Actually, I suspect that is nvida-settings. If you care, you could try running each from the command line and seeing which one matches the program you're running from the menu. I don't think it...

    [ubuntu] Re: Third Monitor on Serval Pro 15"

    Kind of a shot in the dark here, but.... Are you using nvidia-settings or nvidia-xconfig? If so, are you *sure* the settings are being written to the file? I remember having a lot of problems (with...

    That should be reasonably safe, although keep in mind it's only a temporary workaround. It'll be handy in the short term, but really you'd be better off...

    Tablets are actually more practical than laptops/desktops, for some situations. It may make more sense to think of tablets as content consumption devices rather than content creation devices. For...

    It's not *quite* what you're asking for, but you might be interested in building a heat map of signal strengths. I used lewifi (https://code.google.com/p/lewifi/) to do this at my house a few years...

    [ubuntu] Re: Update manager: Not enough free disk space

    That is the cause, right there: a nearly-14 GB directory. Deleting that should fix your problem. But:
    - what caused it?
    - is this going to happen again?
    - is there anything important in there?

    Might help you find the problem:

    [ubuntu] Re: Remote Desktop

    I think what you really want is mpd, http://mpd.wikia.com/wiki/Music_Player_Daemon_Wiki, not Remote Desktop!

    Set up mpd on your Jukebox, then use a Windows client on your XP system to control it.

    Thomas, I think you unintentionally left out some slashes. I think you meant to say:

    sudo rm /var/log/kern.log

    It should just be a setting within emacs (i.e. not anything Ubuntu-specific). Try playing around with the Options? Maybe make sure Syntax Highlighting is turned on? Look at this page, maybe, too:...

    [all variants] Re: Short laptop hardware wishlist

    It's not the same as an actual button, but tapping with two fingers on the touchpad performs a middle-click. It works well enough for me that I've never really desired a separate button.
