    Re: Problem with proprietary driver AMD

    Since Fglrx is a terrible mess (and won't likely improve) I recommend you use the open source Radeon driver with DPM enabled. In kernel 3.11, experimental support for Radeon power management has been...

    Re: Should I switch from Windows 8.1 to Ubuntu?

    That's a fine choice too, and you can make Fedora act quite a lot like Mint if you desire. Fedora packages Mint's Cinnamon desktop and does well keeping it up to date. It's very painless to install....

    Re: New and exciting things in Linux?

    ????

    I'd consider this to be one of the most turbulent, experimental, and progressive periods for Linux in years. The Unity/GNOME 3 controversy has just settled down, Steam/mainstream gaming is...
  4. [all variants] Re: Update frequency of fglrx to keep up with AMD/ATI

    I strongly agree with this. Given how well the Radeon driver progressed lately, there are fewer reasons to use the terrible FGLRX driver. I really recommend you give the open source driver a go. Make...
  5. Re: "Intel Will Not Support Ubuntu's XMir" What will be the consequences?

    I think this is a justifiable move by Intel. Wayland has been in the works for years and is well-established, so why should everyone cater to Ubuntu's separate and unique product? If Canonical wishes...

    Re: Buying new laptop - what do you recommend?

    Get a ThinkPad T430 (or T430s) and select the Intel wireless option when ordering. Great machine for Linux overall.

    ThinkPads, particularly the T series. Configure a ThinkPad T430 with Intel graphics and Intel wireless and you should have absolutely no problems with Linux, but it has no touch screen. If you wait a...

    Re: On Chromebook... Uhhhh!

    This is correct. The Chromebook you have does not use an x86 processor, but instead an ARM processor. Remember back when Macs had major compatibility issues? It was because they were using PowerPC...
  10. Re: Ubuntu Desktop Environment Specifically Designed for Gaming

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Need a certain package, but cannot install due to unmet/broken dependencies.

    From the commands, it looks like something from a previous PPA causing a problem (x-swat). I haven't used this PPA since around August.

  13. [ubuntu] Need a certain package, but cannot install due to unmet/broken dependencies.

    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS with kernel 3.2 and the NVIDIA proprietary driver (nvidia-experimental-310 package).

    A project I'm following requires the libgl1-mesa-dev:i386 package to be installed....

    Re: New Icons

    What happened to the new icon theme though? Canonical hired the guy behind Faenza and Faience. There was supposed to be a new icon theme for RR but I haven't heard tell of it since around November.

    Opera is *not* based on Chromium. Where did you hear this?

    My understanding is that Opera ditched Presto for WebKit. Switching the rendering engine for another is not the same as rebasing the...

    Intel HD 4000 graphics should be able to play CS:S on very low settings. It won't be optimal but it should work. I don't have Intel graphics, so take this with a grain of salt.
