    Starling Keyboard

    My 3½ year old System76 Gazelle is getting to the end of its run. It has taken a lot of abuse, but I'm beginning to think it won't last much longer.

    I'm planning to replace it with a Netbook, and...

    I've recently discovered that the password stored in my password manager for Ubuntuforums is incorrect, and I have no idea what my password is (it was randomly generated). On top of that, I've...

    I run Xmarks on several different computers, and I've only been asked for my password when I set it up on each computer. I believe it uses Firefox's password manager for storing your username and...

    I believe .dmg files can only be opened under Linux if they are not compressed or encrypted. I'm not sure how you can identify a compressed dmg though.

    [other] 160GB hard drive recognized as 39.5 GB.

    My fiancée's laptop hard drive died earlier this week. I ordered a replacement for newegg, and the problem with the replacement is rather bizarre.

    [ubuntu] Re: SSD and Swap for Hibernate

    Can't you specify a file within your filesystem as a hibernate file, without swapping to it? That way you could have hibernation, but not be concerned about the extra frequent writes to the drive.

    Re: Removing a Virus in Ubuntu

    Things like ClamAV aren't going to help. As others have stated, rootkit hunters may turn something up, but that's unlikely, particularly if you're not running an Open SSH port.

    [ubuntu] Re: Bluetooth internal card or dongle?

    As far as I can tell. I'm usually just using a mouse or phone (for OBEX) at a relatively close distance, and I've never had a problem. I've not tried at any significant distances.

    Re: Is System76 the "mac" of Linux

    System76 absolutely supports their systems. If you buy a computer from just about anyone else, you're completely on your own with regard to Linux.

    Re: Do you think Ubuntu should cost money?

    Like most of the others here, I'm going to have to say definitely not.

    The freedom is one of the bigger things that sets it apart from Windows. Suppose Ubuntu cost $20. What does that $20 get you?...

    I've run MythTV on a desktop for several years. I consider it to be a critical box that should have maximum uptime, so I don't change its configuration or run dist-upgrades very often.
