    This reply is a little late, but I feel this post is worth commenting on as it's now 2013 and dragging windows around on Ubuntu 12.10 still isn't perfectly smooth. I'm OCD about this issue, so...

    I don't use phpmyadmin, but the OP mentioned that he doesn't want the users having access to admin functions. He wants to give users basic CRUD access.

    [ubuntu] Re: Unity still drives me crazy

    I'm very curious about Elementary OS Luna (they've recently released beta 1). It looks very interesting, the Gala window manager is fast, responsive, and very stable (even in the beta).

    The only things I can think of is:

    1) Make sure users are only granted access to databases and tables you want them to be able to access. For example, to give user 'tom' the ability to SELECT and...

    While this is not good news for anyone with an nVidia card, I have managed to get dual monitors working absolutely perfectly with an Intel HD 4000 in my new laptop. And when I say "I managed", I...

    I'd definitely be interested in such a keyboard if you sold it separately :). I'm definitely OCD, and I'm very particular about my keyboards.

    On another note, I love what you guys are doing. I...

    Try changing "NameVirtualHost xx.xx.xx.xxx:80" to "NameVirtualHost *:80" in your httpd.conf. Make sure there isn't a duplicate "NameVirtualHost *:80" in ports.conf.

    In regards to a mail client, I would strongly recommend Thunderbird, especially if you use Gmail. I use Thunderbird with the Zindus, Calendar and Lightning extensions. Works great for me. The only...

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Problem with folder permissions (I think)

    A quick way to determine if it's a directory permissions problem is to:

    1. First find out where your browser is trying to save these files when the error occurs. If you're using Firefox, you can...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Apache2 NameVirtualHosts / Httpd.conf file

    You shouldn't set up virtual hosts in both httpd.conf and in the sites-available directory. If you look at your /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file, you'll see down the bottom:

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Has anyone figured out a way to enable tear-free desktop on hybrid setup?

    I agree with the general feeling here. All these "little issues" add up and deter many people from adopting Linux as their primary desktop OS. Don't get me wrong, Linux is great and all that, but...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: [12.04] Screen Tearing With Dual Monitors (NVIDIA Card; TwinView)

    TwinView is broken. It will only work perfectly (without any tearing) if you have two monitors that are completely identical in terms of refresh rates (i.e. if one if 59.85 and the other is 59.90,...
