    Re: ubuntu-html5-app-launcher click bug

    Same problem here. I have spent the past few days trying to get an HTML5 app to run, but none do, not even the tutorial ones from the developer site. Frankly I have given up, I have tried everything...

    [ubuntu] Re: Dell XPS 14 Ultrabook Compatbility

    If the line is always beyond 25W then I would say that your Nvidia card is present but just not being detected by Ubuntu, and therefore always on. If it wasn't there or turned off, you'd only be...

    Yes, definitely not there. I find it unlikely that the card is missing, it probably just isn't being detected, but just to make sure I would follow the steps below:

    Why do you get when you type in:

    Have you installed bumblebee again since you received the error you mentioned earlier?:

    [ubuntu] Re: Dell XPS 14 Ultrabook Compatbility

    It's unlikely that the card has been removed and as far as I know they didn't ship them without the card. It is probably just a case of Ubuntu not detecting it, I seem to remember that when I first...

    That is nothing to worry about, that is what you should get, I get the same thing after running that command too. Have you tried replacing VGA with NVIDIA?

    I wouldn't use dist-upgrade, it may change more than you bargained for. I'm not an expert, but what I would do is install ppa-purge


    sudo apt-get install ppa-purge

    And then run that on the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Dell XPS 14 Ultrabook Compatbility

    If everything works, you may be better off leaving the BIOS/UEFI alone then as messing around with that can stop Windows and Ubuntu from booting altogether.

    Re: Anyone know of a good repository for clamav 0.98

    With 90% of computers running Windows, you're always going to need anti-virus. As far as I know, Clam only protects against Windows viruses anyway that's certainly all I use it for.
