  1. [ubuntu] Re: System seems a bit slower after a few resumes from suspend

    Anybody else seeing this?
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Thunderbird lacking notify-osd based notifications?

    Thanks! I'll look into it. I just find it's strange that my Gmail based IMAP addresses have yet to show any failed notification on any of my systems, yet my work's IMAP email is the one acting up on...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Thunderbird lacking notify-osd based notifications?

    Thanks, I'll look into that. Kind of a bummer that the default mail client has its short comings in these areas. :-(
  4. [ubuntu] System seems a bit slower after a few resumes from suspend

    Hello friends. Just curious on your take with this. Is anybody else experiencing some slow downs with Ubuntu after resuming from suspend? I'm admittedly not a huge fan of sleep mode on laptops, as I...

  6. [ubuntu] Thunderbird lacking notify-osd based notifications?

    Hello friends. I recently set up Thunderbird with my work email via IMAP. I was happy to see that I could receive notifications via the notify-osd you see in the upper right corner, just to get a...

    Re: Why to consider system76

    Not to mention, if you do a spec-for-spec comparison to what Lenovo, Dell, etc offer, you'll see System76 is actually *cheaper* in most cases. Every few months I'll do a comparison of a few of their...

    Re: Are "newbie" threads dying out?

    I still see an array of basic questions on askubuntu.com. That seems to be more of a "hub" for stuff like that in some ways. Whenever I talk about forums I still get people who look at me like I'm...
  9. Re: What to do with computers/components that aren't really worth anything?

    I work in IT full time, but I also do tech work on the side. Part of my side job is to take old computers and repurpose them. I actually have a "Donate Your Old Computer" heading on my web site for...

    [SOLVED] Re: Debian on Mac Mini... striking out.

    Thanks for your reply. I actually just got this figured out last night. I noticed this on the Debian MacMiniIntel Wiki page:


    With the mid-2009 (macmini 3,1) model, you need a "testing" installer...

  12. How to have system email me if no data is written to a specific dir in x-time frame?

    I have an odd-ball question... I have two network based surveillance cameras recording 24/7 to an always-on system. The cameras themselves do not have any sort of email feature, so I don't have a...

    [SOLVED] Debian on Mac Mini... striking out.

    Hello friends. I'm trying to install OpenMediaVault on an old Mac Mini. OMV is based on Debian stable. I've tried both OMV and Debian stable and they install fine, however once the system completes...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Screen tearing with Nvidia GT440 + Chrome + Netflix

    I'm not sure, to be honest with you. After reading over my edited post I do recall trying the 331-updates again and it working fine. I don't know if there was an update that fixed it or what. Do you...

    Re: Made a switch to Linux Mint

    I have a Dell Latitude E7440 laptop, which is an i5 Haswell 8GB 256GB SSD rig that I absolutely love. The one thing that I noticed is that if I plug in a 2nd display, Unity is pretty laggy. Granted...
  16. Re: Clarification on Debian kernel, hardware support with brand new hardware, etc.

    That's kind of a loaded statement to make... I have personally submitted a multitude of bug reports to Ubuntu that affected many users... and have yet to get addressed. Some even being 3+ years old....
  17. Re: Clarification on Debian kernel, hardware support with brand new hardware, etc.

    If I recall there are unofficial builds hosted on the Debian site that actually include a lot of those bits. It's not that Debian doesn't allow it, it's just that Debian doesn't ship with any...
  18. Re: Clarification on Debian kernel, hardware support with brand new hardware, etc.

    Oh certainly. I knew asking this question it would be a rarity, and also that laptops are almost always the ones "needing" newer kernels to function. And uh, yeah I'm definitely not running a server,...
  19. Re: Clarification on Debian kernel, hardware support with brand new hardware, etc.

    Very nice. Sounds like a great alternative. Here's the catch that I'm somewhat struggling with... what if (this may be a big 'if', but what IF...) your computer simply will not boot on Debian with...
  20. Clarification on Debian kernel, hardware support with brand new hardware, etc.

    Hello friends. I run OpenMediaVault on my home server, which is basically a Linux based FreeNAS oriented NAS specific distro. It's based on Debian Stable. You can either install the OMV ISO, or...

    I'm on a Dell Latitude E7440 (came with Ubuntu on it) running 14.04.1 while backing up files to my server (OpenMediaVault, Debian based) while streaming some Jupiter Broadcasting on my HTPC (14.04.1...
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Notify-OSD background color is dependent upon wallpaper color. Can I change that?

    I figured as such. It just seems like a foolish design choice to be notify-osd background based on wallpaper (something that you see so rarely), as opposed to the coloring/background of say the left...
  23. [ubuntu] Notify-OSD background color is dependent upon wallpaper color. Can I change that?

    It seems as if notify-osd's color choices is based on your wallpaper. This is wildly frustrating for me, as I have a black and white picture of my daughter as my wallpaper. As such, the gray...

    Re: The future of 'click packages'. Eh?

    I know you said nothing is fixed in stone, but this caught my eye. Given that Unity 8 + Mir was supposedly going to be an option for 15.04, I figured they would easily have it in 16.04. If that gets...
