    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 Desktop Cube Compiz Issues

    I ended my contributions around the time of Karmic. I work on Enlightenment occasionally, but I have a soft spot in my heart for Ubuntu. Even though my Linux journey started considerably before...

    Actually, I already bowed out with (end rant). But I guess I will have the last word if you wish. Of course it's all opinion. Be well. ):P

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 Desktop Cube Compiz Issues

    But that's part of my point. It is not easier nor more usable. It's thinner, duller. And to recreate what was already there that I need takes a lot of wasted time and effort. I'm not only talking...

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 Desktop Cube Compiz Issues

    I was just reading that the 12.04.2 Alpha 2 (for opt-in flavors) is comming out in mid February. Maybe things get better for the LTS in that version. I can wait.

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 Desktop Cube Compiz Issues

    Thank you. Nice article. Moving out of LTS means I'm doomed to follow through to the next LTS which means possibly more "improvements" I do not want. If this LTS is not working correctly then...

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 Desktop Cube Compiz Issues

    Here it is, the end of January 2013, and the problem of compiz cube and flashing is still unfixed in 12.04 LTS. Yes, that's LTS. LTSs have always been the best tried and proven version in a cycle. ...

    You got me thinking, and I decided to go backwards from your suggestion and I looked up all the files listed for the clamav packages on the packages.ubuntu site. I found that the...
  8. [SOLVED] clamav will not install after previous install purged

    I'm kind of stumped on a clamav reinstall. I have been running clamav on this mail server for a couple of years using clamav-daemon. I decided to upgrade it; I purged it using apt-get. After doing...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: root backgound resets to black 10 sec. after login

    No, no... Some programs use the root desktop background for a simulated transparency. You use utilities to change that desktop background in scripts which display it in program windows like conky. ...

    Greetings...

    This is a strange one for me. I have been running my conky using a script to set the root background to an image for a year and a half. I did an upgrade the other day and now, the...

    [ubuntu] live cd crash

    Is it any indication of a problem if a live cd of 11.10 32bit desktop crashes when in trial mode? I have been running Ubuntu for years but never have had crashes of the live cd before. Is there a...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: gparted causes multiple entries in nautilus

    So it seems we are talking about tradition and continuity rather than conflicts or absolutes which is what I have always thought; you can theoretically mount anything wherever you wish.

  14. [ubuntu] Re: gparted causes multiple entries in nautilus

    The only mention I have ever heard of not using /media as a mount point are in 2 installation specific instructions I read while using Gentoo. Outside of that, this is the first I have heard of it...
  15. [ubuntu] gparted causes multiple entries in nautilus

  17. Re: What you would like to see, changed or fixed in Precise Pangolin ?

    Putting my rant aside for a moment, and trying not to skirt your question or the subject of the thread, you are implying that the fact the Ubuntu vision for many of us has been hugely tarnished is...
  18. Re: What you would like to see, changed or fixed in Precise Pangolin ?

  20. [kubuntu] Re: konqueror keeps reinstalling itself after manually removing over and over again

    That's weird. I had the same thing happen to me on one of my servers recently. This program just kept on installing itself. In my case though, the install failed each time. This was the only...
  21. [kubuntu] Re: konqueror keeps reinstalling itself after manually removing over and over again

    It could be half installed which means there are some left over references to konqueror in dpkg.

    try this first:

    sudo dpkg --force-depends --remove konqueror

    If that doesn't work then you...

  25. [SOLVED] Re: can't upgrade, dpkg error 1, old failed install keeps trying to -configure

    After looking a little deeper, it seems the snort program is in a "half installed state". "postinst abort-remove failed" is another error message when I run apt-get remove -f snort.
