    Re: Linux Overheat

    Are you talking about MacBooks in general, or your specific MacBook (which exact model is it by the way)? And which version of Ubuntu are you using? Are you running the appropriate kernel?

    Re: Problem- wireless lenovo N500

    Hmmm... well, can you determine if this problem is present in other operating systems (eg. Windows) or perhaps a different, non-Ubuntu-based distro (Debian, Arch, Gentoo, Fedora, etc.)? If the...

    Re: Problem- wireless lenovo N500

    Well, if FN+F5 doesn't work, you could try this workaround... "soft-unblocking". Here's the manual page for rfkill:



    So, you could use:
    sudo rfkill unblock all

    Or, if you just want to...

    [PPC] Re: Testers needed for PowerPC 12.04

    At the risk of (me) sounding dumb, I wonder if you could use the "Force Version" feature in Synaptic... I remember using that a while back when I had two versions of MESA-related files installed...

  8. Re: uninstall Ubuntu 10.10 and install Ubuntu 12.04 on Macbook pro with dual boot

    I'd love to help you, but I don't own any intel macs... though, having said that, presumably all you'd need to do is boot off of your 12.04 disc (or USB flashdrive, if you've burned the ISO onto...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS PPC to G4 PowerBook: No alsamixer

    When people say to 'comment' some things out, that means to simply put a hash mark/pound sign (#) at the very beginning of the lines they appear in. This tells the system to ignore those particular...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS PPC to G4 PowerBook: No alsamixer

    When you use nano to open a file that already exists, you can usually just press CTRL+x (denoted as "^x") to exit the file, and before it completely exits, it'll give you the chance to save the file,...

  15. [ubuntu] Re: imac runs hotter with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS & other questions

    You said that you already installed 12.04 onto your iMac. Did you apply all the available software updates? If you did, there would be no real reason to download that...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: imac runs hotter with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS & other questions

    Could you perhaps share the link or links of those sites that you were reading? The phrase "Mac-related" could arbitrarily mean anything, depending on how one looks at it.
  17. [PPC] Re: Best/most recent Ubuntu version I can install on Powerbook G4 Titanium?

    If you're feeling adventurous, you could always try the PPC iso image for 13.04. It worked fine for me on my iMac G3, except that the mouse kept stalling, even if I just move it around in circles on...

    I appreciate your effort, e.e.p. But I think I'll settle with XFCE after all. Seeing as how I've gotten so familiar with Linux Mint 13 XFCE on my x86 PC. It's such a shame though; I mean, despite...

    What I Did:
    I installed E17 via Synaptic (just to see what else would be installed along with it). I also made certain that I have GPU acceleration by downgrading MESA to 7.11.x (needed for the...
  20. [PPC] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 can't install apps after getting OpenGL working

    I guess I'm a little out of my league since I don't own a G4-based Mac. However, I do not believe you need libgl1-mesa-glx-dbg_7.11-0ubuntu3.2_powerpc.deb. Also, I think the problem lies in the...
  21. [PPC] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 can't install apps after getting OpenGL working

    I think you'd have better results if you downloaded ALL 4 .deb files and made extra certain that they are all of the same version. I'd imagine that looking at such a long list of packages can be a...
