  1. [SOLVED] Re: Samba: new file or folder not visible on share

    I am sick to death of screwing with Ubuntu and Samba. I have a media server that is inaccessible half the time. I'm tired of this crap. After 8 years with Ubuntu I'm ready to throw in the towel.

    [ubuntu] Re: Cheese Video is laggy

    At least for me, this is not true. Even at 640 X 480 the audio is terribly laggy.

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrading from 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS

    Thanks - I did miss that. Because of the weak video performance of my old laptop I likely will stay with 10.04.4.

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrading from 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS

    I'm still confused as to why I have no upgrade (to 12.04) option on my laptop running 10.04.4 LTS.

    Thanks for your reply. I've decided to do a fresh install on my desktop 11.04 system. It is the best choice. The laptop, however, is another matter. Because of it's integrated and weak graphics...

    It looks like it's not possible to upgrade from 11.04 to 12.04. I have my upgrade settings to LTS versions only and I get no notification to upgrade to 12.04.

    I have a laptop that's running...

    [ubuntu] Don't Ever Do an Ubuntu Update!

    Ubuntu should absolutely STOP ADVISING AND ENABLING updates. The update tool is a complete mess.

    Only a FRESH INSTALL has any chance of working anymore. An update is a crap shoot that fails...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Wubi Upgrade 10.10 to 11.04 Compiz Issues

    Thanks to both of you. I'll give it a shot. I've tried to talk the user into a dual boot (she still uses Windows too) to no avail. Perhaps this experience will win her over to my thinking.

    Re: No Interest in 11.04

    I've tried to get to regular gnome in my VB installation of 11.04 but no can do. Can't run Unity because guest additions will not install successfully. Pretty hard to test if nothing much works.

    Re: No Interest in 11.04

    Looks like Ubuntu has become a victim of their own success. And now, even though nobody asked for it, something completely different - A Mac desktop!

    I don't think so!

    No Interest in 11.04

    For the first time since I began using Ubuntu (Dapper Drake) I find I have no interest in the upcoming new release of 11.04. What little I have been able to test of Unity I do not like at all. I've...

    I agree. Hit the road jackass. I too have a valid reason to run a GUI with my headless server. I may end up going back to 8.04.
