    I submitted this a bug and it has been confirmed.

  2. [ubuntu] Lock screen allows input and visuals to desktop

    I think the title says most of what I'm having trouble with.

    When I lock the screen (CTRL-ALT-L) or if the screen locks itself due to inactivity, I can often see through to the desktop programs...

    I tried installing Ubuntu on a similar system (atom CPU though) and honestly the biggest (rather smallest) problem was the resolution limitations. Desktop apps couldn't run on a screen that small, OK...

    thanks for this, it really bugs me having the nav buttons on the right and not having the up/parent button is nearly unbearable.

  6. [SOLVED] Ubuntu hangs during boot. kernel 3.0.0-14 3.0.0-15

    Concerning Ubuntu 11.10 I've noticed that there are many help requests on the net from people with hanging ubuntu systems after upgrading the kernel from 3.0.0-13 to -14 or -15.

  7. [SOLVED] Re: Found Someone on My Wireless Network, Now What?

    Its possible that they don't even realize that they've connected to your network. They may have the computer set to connect to any open network.

  8. Re: New Ubuntu Is Out Lets Hear About What You've To Say

    I know this is a bit old but I'm doing the same thing. Gnome-shell is great.

    The updated unity isn't bad, but gnome-shell is very functional and polished.

    The only thing I've really disliked...

    It seems that there are 2 groups in this thread. I now fall into the mysteriously fixed group. Then there seems to be some that have a similar problem but it must be caused by a different issue.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu freezing with no apparent reason

    Just thought I'd check in to see how everyone is doing. Strangely both my affected machines are now onto 6 days uptime. I'm not sure but I think the updates on the 24th may have fixed things.

  11. Re: Getting ready to get my first Android phone

    I have a chinese Epad tablet and I can say with all certainty that Angry birds plays choppy before I kill tasks. After the tasks are killed it's much better. Believe it or not I'm telling you my...
  12. Re: Getting ready to get my first Android phone

    Perhaps it's the CPU power needed, I'm not sure. I know that killing the apps will give a performance boost. It's noticeable.
  13. Re: Getting ready to get my first Android phone

    I'm running 2.3 on my Galaxy i7500 and I find that after killing all the apps that start up by themselves the extra memory is helpful. Perhaps on the newer phones with more ram it's less needed.
  14. Re: Getting ready to get my first Android phone

    1. on this subject thanks for reminding me about warranty. The warranty isn't a big deal to me since they're only for 1 yr anyway. I want a rooted device.

    2. Isn't the tegra 2 dual core? I think...
  15. Re: Getting ready to get my first Android phone

    Instead of giving advice on apps here are some other things to think about.

    1. Is it easy to "root" (search the web for the device your looking at)
    2. Is it dual core? the newer devices are and...

    I hope that sorts it out for you. My work desktop started doing it today. I'll check the ram also but I think it's likely something else. I may have to revert to 10.10 or maybe 10.04 if I don't find...

    Did these problems only occur with 11.04? Did they ever happen with previous versions?

    It only started for me a few weeks ago. I didn't even notice it when I first installed 11.04. At least I can't remember it being there.
