  1. [xubuntu] Re: Replacing Thunar messed up desktop file operations

    That's not the point. I disliked the awkward combination of Thunar+Catfish (which couldn't even interact with the files it found besides open them). So, I grabbed another file manager which had what...
  2. [xubuntu] Replacing Thunar messed up desktop file operations

    Hello,

    I disliked Thunar's lack of a search function that actually worked with the file manager, so I decided to install Nemo instead. Afterwards I attempted to remove Thunar. Now, Nemo is...

    [ubuntu] Artefacts, screen flips

    Hi all, been a while since I posted on these forums.

    I've been using Ubuntu 12.10 with the default Unity config (tried Cinnamon but preferred it pre-config'd like in Mint).

  8. Re: Call for support: Ask Electronic Arts to bring Origin and their games to Linux.

  11. [SOLVED] Gmusicbrowser only detecting 116 songs

    Hi all, I decided to give Xubuntu a try because Lubuntu is, IMO, too lightweight, and I thought it was missing a few features.

    I agree. Speaking of the GUI, I had to switch to Lubuntu because Unity (Compiz) kept crashing with the Nvidia drivers that came with the install CD.
