  1. [SOLVED] Re: Changing the drum sound at the login screen - 10.04.

    This should work in 11.04 too. Also, just try renaming /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/dialog-question.ogg

    Or maybe removing the symlink /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/system-ready.ogg
  2. [SOLVED] Re: "Waiting for sound system to respond" problem, Ubuntu 10.04

    Same issue. The trouble started after moving my home folder from a 10.04 box to a 10.10 install. Renaming ~/.pulse and rebooting worked for me. I suspect a reboot is not necessary, but I had to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Using cron to run a PHP script

    This should work:

    crontab -e

    Then make your changes and save the file. It will be installed automatically. Here is some documentation that you might find helpful.

    I've worked with Xen quite a bit, and although I've never spent much time on sound, my understanding is that Xen supports sound just fine. Perhaps Amazon hasn't implemented certain features, or...

    [ubuntu] Re: How can i keep using ubuntu 8.10 ?

    tommyleeds, just to clarify, if you want a more stable release, use the LTS ("Long Term Support") releases. 10.04 was the latest LTS, but not all .04 releases are LTS. AFAIK, there's nothing special...

    No kidding. I would strongly recommend upgrading, unless there's a really good reason not to.

    I agree, it's an interesting idea. I've not used FreeNX much, otherwise I'd offer some advice. The only thing I'd suggest is to run SSH on an alternate port once you get everything working. This...

    No hard feelings. Anyway, I was responding to OP. Also, I'm still happy with Liferea! :P

    I've also liked RSSOwl -- not sure about caching features there... GL
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Mouse Freezing for second on Keyboard use

    Could be a feature designed to prevent accidental mouse clicks when typing. If it's hardware based, there might be something in the BIOS that would allow you to disable that behavior. HTH

    Yeah, RAID is definitely not a substitute for good backups. Personally, I'd buy more disks if I had to, or reuse existing disks. DVD-Rs would be a pain.

    Maybe ditch RAID altogether. I know you...

    That's not enough. For example, Windows XP SP2 broke many apps that worked fine in XP SP1.
  25. Poll: Re: What is the best Linux system that you were using,and why?

    Ubuntu for home. Debian / CentOS for servers. If you're looking for super stable but want to be able to easily install some of the latest software, I'd recommend Debian stable + debian backports.
