    [gnome] How to stop submenu scrolling?

    Sub-menus in the Applications menu often require scrolling, as shown in the attached image. Other times, the sub-menus display full height, with all their contents. It appears related to how recently...

    [SOLVED] Re: Strange display problems

    Thank you. Turning off hardware acceleration and restarting Firefox solved the problem. (Guess my searches on the problem weren't very good -- I should've seen that thread or others.)

    [SOLVED] Strange display problems

    I'm getting several strange display problems:
    When I play YouTube videos, everything has a blue tint.
    Ghosts of a YouTube video are showing up in the background of programs. Anywhere...
  4. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    Turning off the screensaver while running xscreensaver still allows me to lock the screen. It'd be nice if I could find a true graphic screensaver that would play nice with my monitor setup, but for...
  5. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    Okay, I'll try that. In the long term, however, I do want some kind of screensaver -- I want something to lock the screen when I'm away.

    [ubuntu] Re: Resizing /boot partition

    ? I used the Ubuntu installer. Now, Gparted is the main tool available.
    How do I do that? Is the boot partition only used when the system is booting up?
    Really? It's safe to move the root...

    [ubuntu] Resizing /boot partition

    When I installed Ubuntu on this machine, I made the /boot partition only 100 MB. That has proven woefully inadequate, because every time a new linux-headers package comes down the pipe, I have to go...
  8. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    I think I installed it directly from Nvidia's website, yes.
    I'd rather not downgrade, since I spent the money on this GPU and I'd like to get as much out of it as possible. I may just use the...
  9. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    I'm using the Nvidia 295.20 driver. (The proprietary one, and the most current, so far as I can tell from Nvidia's website.) No other graphics drivers seem to be available.

    Thank you for your...
  10. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    Crud. I came home tonight to find that the X screensaver had frozen and that the mouse and keyboard were unresponsive. I had to hard reboot the computer. I thought this problem was solved, but now it...
  11. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    After a few days' experimentation, all seems to be working well. Thanks again!
  12. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    There are some things I don't like about the Xscreensaver options as much as the Gnome screensavers, but that's just aesthetics. It seems to be working. Thanks! (I'm going to experiment for a few...
  13. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    I finally got around to running an experiment with the new settings (leaving the monitor on with Cosmos screensaver going, sleep set to "never") and the system still froze. Keyboard unresponsive,...
  14. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    Will that prevent the screensaver from taking effect?

    Gosh, I've never thought to check the power management settings for a desktop. Thanks, I hope that works!
  15. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    ? I think I already addressed that.
  16. Re: Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    Thanks, I'll try blank screen.

    I forget which specific screensavers I've tried. They're all the default Gnome ones, though. Most recently, the pictures folder one. Before that, I think I tried the...
  17. Keyboard unresponsive after screensaver kicks in

    If I let my 10.04 desktop stay idle long enough for the screensaver to kick in and the monitor to then go idle, the keyboard and mouse become unresponsive. As in, the only way to get the PC to...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: SATA + IDE in one machine, but IDE doesn't show up

    Something to keep in mind if/when you do! :)
    Me too! :D Thanks again.
  19. [SOLVED] Re: SATA + IDE in one machine, but IDE doesn't show up

    That thread was right on; it seems to have been a problem with the kernel. I followed these instructions to upgrade to the 2.6.38 kernel and my IDE drive now seems to be mounting perfectly.

    The...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: SATA + IDE in one machine, but IDE doesn't show up

    Not sure. I saw an interesting thread that might be relevant -- it appears that other people might be having the same problem. However, I really don't want to mess around with my motherboard if I can...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: SATA + IDE in one machine, but IDE doesn't show up

    More data points: There were no useful changeable settings in BIOS. (ASUS P8P67LE motherboard.) I could change the boot order, but that hardly seems relevant...?

    Also, I tried the ASUS disc that...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: SATA + IDE in one machine, but IDE doesn't show up

    Okay, I've tried switching the drive to the master position and to CS jumper position, but still Ubuntu doesn't detect it. :(
  23. [SOLVED] Re: SATA + IDE in one machine, but IDE doesn't show up

    On a second read, I assume you meant the settings in the BIOS for IDE. I've tried changing them, but the BIOS doesn't seem to offer anything like master or slave settings. It has boot order, but I...
  24. [SOLVED] Re: SATA + IDE in one machine, but IDE doesn't show up

    No, this is 10.04 on the desktop. (Sorry, hadn't updated my .sig yet.) I'll try the 10.04 live CD.

    I've tried both positions on the ribbon, and according to this Seagate page, I think it's been on...
  25. [SOLVED] Re: SATA + IDE in one machine, but IDE doesn't show up

    More information: 3) I've also seen lots of people having trouble with dmraid, but my system doesn't have dmraid installed. 4) The Windows partition editor detects the IDE drive with no problem. (It...
