    [wubi] Re: problems with installing programs

    Can you elaborate on what sort of problems you have?

    What steps have you taken to install these packages?
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Wrong background color for google desktop tray icon

    LOL.

    Yeah, I can't help think that the interface for Lucid is something of a regression from Karmic. Lame. I wish they would stop "enhancing" GNOME by crippling it even further, and fix the stuff...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: ATI & Nvidia: no X, just blinking on 2.6.31 (Karmic 9.10)

    Guys,

    I saw this (the flickering shell) when I tried to install and boot the desktop-pae kernel. I resolved it by installing all the headers, kernel-source, etc. I think it may be related to the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Man---i need install help !!!

    Ok, hold on. Do you have internet on that box? If so, chances are you're 90% fine, you might just have an audio problem. By LAN do you mean no Windows file-sharing, or no *Internet*?

  7. [ubuntu] Re: HELP....I am screwed...changing form 8.10 to 9.04

    Alrighty. Lets click on that first partition, and get the little dialog box. The drop down might say "Do Not Use this Partition". Change that to type "ntfs", and mountpoint to /windows. DO NOT...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: HELP....I am screwed...changing form 8.10 to 9.04

    Ok partner, first off, do NOT format the ntfs partition. That is Windows!

    [ubuntu] Re: Bulk file renaming...

    Naw, you can use a FOR loop to go through and mass rename them. I wrote a script to do it on videos, but I lost it. Let me decompress fromthe IT world for a few and I will try to write you a script...

    [ubuntu] Re: Full Featured Text Editor(s), looking for

    I would agree, Kate meets the bill. It is a KDE app, and while I actually really like KDE apps in KDE, for some reason it bugs me to use them under Gnome. I might just be neurotic. Kate does truly...

    HP Photosmart is still busted.

    As others have already said, get it a shot. Linux really isn't scary, I promise. VLC runs natively in Ubuntu, and looks/works great. GIMP is a 95% replacement for Photoshop, or you can run Photoshop...

    Re: Ibex Theme/Look Proposal

    If you read my post, this is exactly what I'm saying. All of this is true, and none of it requires the wallpaper and icons to be ugly.

    Re: Ibex Theme/Look Proposal

    Ubuntu *is* a rip-off. It is a rip-off of Debian GNU/Linux. Is this a slam on Ubuntu? Does it reduce the value of Ubuntu as an OS in some way? Does it trivialize the great Debian package system, or...

    So what? II has not been released yet, so it is timely. And truly, this theme is nothing short of revolting.

    [ubuntu] Re: The Ubuntu/Gnome Dark Theme mega thread

    I have to agree, that theme is perfectly hideous. What on Earth is so awesome about using brown on a freaking desktop? If they intend to re-work the Ubuntu desktop look, couldn't they just ditch the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Should I Make the Switch?

    Yup. 32-bit, so don't worry about the other stuff. Also, make a mental note in case you want another package that has special instructions for 64-bit. Your system is 32 bit, called x86, or i386. Most...
