    [ubuntu] S1300 works pretty okay (for me) on 10.04 Lucid with SANE backends version 1.0.22

    It seems that the S1300 can be made to work on Lucid without (much) extra fiddling, if you add this PPA. Run the typical

    [ubuntu] Switching off apt-cacher-ng when the cacher server isn't available

    It's not a built-in function of apt-cacher-ng, so you'll have to pick one of the solutions here, all of which involve writing scripts to or manually renaming config files to "hide" them from APT,...

    Sadly, everyone seems to have moved on with all the hype surrounding GNOME 3 and Unity. If there are any 10.04 + UNE holdouts out there, you may find this guide useful:

    [ubuntu] Re: Phatch - help please

    Perhaps a screenshot will help. See below. The example I've given saves a scaled version of all selected images in a subfolder called "00_SCALED_800px" (created at the same level in the directory...

    [ubuntu] Re: Phatch - help please

    dpkg -l | grep phatch

    will tell you the name of the package, if you weren't sure to begin with. It's phatch-nautilus.


    dpkg -L <packagename>

    will list the contents of the package. So, from...

    Use the window CLASS returned by xprop in exclude list (was Re: maximus)

    What you need to use is the CLASS returned by the xprop command. If you install the x11-utils package, you'll get this command (not sure if that package is installed by default).

    Or perhaps that's how you intended to get around the chown/chmod problem. It would work, but chmod'ing folders to wide-open "777" (ugo+rwx) is probably a bad practice to default to when you're having...

    [ubuntu] Re: Customizing User Folders with /etc/skel ?

    I believe that /usr/local/bin/setuser.dirs would need to be a setuid root binary in order for this to work in the login scripts, otherwise any "chown"s or "chmod"s on the directories will likely...

    [ubuntu] Re: nautilus sftp:// smb:// and trash:/// broken

    Yeah, this is annoying.

    I'll check my 10.10 box a little later to see if it got fixed. And I'll dig through the bugs in Launchpad to see if anyone's tracking this problem yet.
