  1. [lubuntu] Re: how to change default desktop from lxde to lubuntu

    I fixed this by editing /etc/xdg/lubuntu/lxdm/lxdm.conf. (The man page says it is /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf for standard lxdm, /etc/xdg/lubuntu/lxdm/lxdm.conf for Lubuntu.)

    The third section begins

  2. Re: Too many people badmouthing Ubuntu and Unity

    Upgrading to 11.10 left both of my computers unable to boot into a session. This has something to do with Unity. I re-installed and tried Unity. Nothing was easy, nothing was configurable, everything...

    Re: New version of Sigil out!

    Thank you, this is an application I almost gave up looking for.

    To read an ebook or convert among many formats, Calibre is best.

  10. Re: [HowTo]: Fix suspend and hibernate on laptops

    Control over suspending is moving into the kernel, with uneven success. The hal files don't do anything anymore. I went half-mad trying to fix my suspend problem, and finally found I had to change...

    Re: intel i830/i845/i855GM graphics

    This kernel works the best for me so far. Thank you. The only glitch I observe on my machine is that upon resuming after suspending, the screen lighting is dimmed by one level. This is a very minor...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Upgraded to 10.10: X won't start (Intel graphics)

    The parameter pci=nocrs makes no difference in my case. My computer has an Intel 82852/82855 graphics chip.

    Answering a couple of things:

    Why install a mainline kernel? Because, in my case at least, nothing else worked -- i915.modeset=1 let me boot at last, but I still had frequent video freezes and...

    I never had Opera problems like this -- Japanese input either works well or not at all.

    Update for Lucid 10.04:

    Ubuntu now uses IBus and no longer supports SCIM. Too bad IBus doesn't work with any Qt-based programs.
