  1. [SOLVED] Re: Handbrake ppa

    Okeh, i'll bite. Since Software Center is unable to show me what i was looking in default mode, how do interact with it for it to be useful?
  2. [SOLVED] Re: How To Check If A PPA Is Added Correctly?

    Yup, that missing '-gtk' was what had me stymied. It's curious that Software Center doesn't find handbrake-gtk when the search term is "handbrake", though.

    Sadly, it *did* work in older releases [Dapper Drake comes to mind]. ...
  8. Sticky: Re: Where to download Ubuntu for PowerPC and other frequently asked questions

    Meh. The last few releases i've tried on my PowerBook have all suffered from various degrees of broken-ness. This includes regression in things that used to work in early versions, such as...

    You will probably get better responses if you open a new thread instead of riding the back of a thread called "Where to download Ubuntu for PowerPC and other frequently asked questions". Besides...
  10. Sticky: Re: Where to download Ubuntu for PowerPC and other frequently asked questions

    Here's my 2 cents worth on the distros i've tried:

    Poll: [all variants] Re: PowerPC Dead? or still Thriving?

    Re: Good old Infocom text adventures ?
