  1. [ubuntu] Re: General instability recently. Only for me? 12.04

    I am not a highly technical user, so those changes often mean very little to me. You are probably right that the changes between the versions are relatively small; or at least they don't seem to be...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: General instability recently. Only for me? 12.04

    Thanks for the answers. I'll try your advices.

    As I explained before, in my case, I did test the hardware (which is fairly new and fast) for problems and found none, and switching to a different...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: General instability recently. Only for me? 12.04

    My boot menu allows to me to choose "previous verions", and when I choose the 3.2.0-38-generic kernel those stability problem appear to be gone. I have been working with this kernel for two days now,...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: General instability recently. Only for me? 12.04

    Thanks, but a live USB won't help in this case because these errors have occured twice or so a day on average, and not in any particular circumstances that I could notice, so several hours or a whole...

    [SOLVED] Re: How do I turn off sound effects?

    I was eventually able to get rid of those annoyances using Ubuntu Tweak. Under the 'Sound' section there is a selector for Event Sounds, and unlike the one in Ubuntu's own Sound Settings, this one...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: WHere are the Arabic/Hebrew variants of the Ubuntu font?

    I think the problem is solved: the font displayed in Ubuntu isn't the Ubuntu font, but DejaVu Sans, whose Right-to-Left variants seem similar to the Ubuntu font.

  14. [SOLVED] Re: Win7 fails to boot on a dual-boot system after partition move

    Possibly, but as far as I know, at least the built-in tools aren't capable of handling non-microsoft file systems, so they might not be of help where changes to other partitions are necessary too. In...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Win7 fails to boot on a dual-boot system after partition move

    I followed window's own advice and used the 'repair my computer' tool from the windows DVD. I had prepared myself to having to re-install grub, but this time I was pleasantly surprised by windows:...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Win7 fails to boot on a dual-boot system after partition move

    As I suspected, updating/reconfiguring GRUB made no difference. The problem has nothing to do with grub, because the message I get is from the windows boot manager, not from grub, and thus belongs to...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Win7 fails to boot on a dual-boot system after partition move
