    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Aspire no back light

    sudo update-grub looks like a terminal command, so I'd try entering it in terminal. Like you did with the original commands that brought up the text file for you to edit. Have you got a link to the...

    Re: Cheap printing at home..

    I'm siding with those who say just get a pro. If you could find a way of doing it considerably cheaper yourself, it would be probably be worth going into business and selling printing services :)

    [ubuntu] Re: Linux Going Haywire

    This is an interesting point.

    When providing help, the easiest and most efficient thing to do is provide commands. Even if fixes can be done in the gui, it's far easier and faster to provide a...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Restoring original Libre Office Document Writer layout

    Okay - I've had a play with the find-and-replace on LibreOffice, and it seems a bit dicky to me, but let's try a couple of things.

    Nice! I'm a font fan. Do you distribute them or make them for personal use?

    [ubuntu] Re: can I depend on ubuntu live

    Does this mean you always intend to use the same PC? If so, out of curiousity, why rely on live?

    Are you worried about/daunted by the installation process? If so (and the PC has Windows) have...

    [ubuntu] Re: can I depend on ubuntu live

    If I was running Ubuntu like this, I'd either be using cloud storage to save my files, or - if I couldn't depend on internet access - at least backing them up to somewhere religiously.

    Nothing constructive to add, but purely out of curiousity - why remove a font?
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Unity side-launcher: specific case for relocation

    Not much consolation, but I agree.

    I think I understand why customisation is limited. Designing a new desktop environment isn't a trivial task, and presumably, beginning with a less customisable...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Installing Ubuntu on Dell with No Linux Experience

    If you're in the market for a lightweight Linux distro, Crunchbang might also be worth a look. It's a really nice lightweight distro. I can't say I've personally tried it with that amount of RAM,...

    I've used Ubuntu on three different laptops and have never had problems with freezing (apart from individual apps freezing, very occasionally, but then I can kill and continue).

    Re: Why isn't computer science taught in schools?

    @Paqman

    LOL - I did forget peripherals, guilty as charged :D

    Why 26 though? You've priced for the Model B (admittedly, the monitor, etc., is a bigger deal!).

    Re: Why isn't computer science taught in schools?

    Hmm... I've heard this said about the Raspberry Pi before, and I don't think it's quite fair.

    My main webmail account isn't with any of the major providers - the domain is my friend's website.

    [ubuntu] Re: Unity: Switching Between Windows

    I love Unity too :) but the down side is it isn't very configurable. I'm not aware of any way to disable/speed up/slow down the animations.

    My own bugbear with Unity's launcher is that I'd like...

    Hi Vamsi,

    I had this problem too, when I installed 11.10 via Wubi. My solution was just to leave it and let it do its thing, plugged into ethernet (I could just about see, when I angled the...
  18. Re: Valve Corporation's Steam is coming to Linux in 2012

    I reckon very few of the titles will come to Ubuntu initially, and the growth of the library will depend on response/uptake. They're not going to go all-in and port every single one of their titles...

    In terms of backups, the safest thing is to use multiple places. Any file that only exists in one place is in danger. A cloud might fall over, a thumb drive might be lost, a laptop might perish in...

    [SOLVED] Re: No picture

    Hurray! Glad to be of help.

    I think this is an area where the out-of-the-box experience could be a bit smoother, but I wonder if it's deliberate (because of free software issues).
