  2. Re: MIR will be the new display server, and Unity will be ported to Qt

    Looks like NIH to me. People involved with Wayland have said that Canonical's claimed reasons for not using Wayland are bogus (see https://plus.google.com/100409717163242445476/posts/jDq6BAgdpkG and...

  4. [ubuntu] glabels 3.0.0 font selection horribly slow

    glabels is a very useful program... but it seems that now that I've moved to 12.10, font selection in glabels is as slow as molasses.

    glabels 3.0.0, which 12.10 comes with, has a new font...

    Cinnamon looks really nice, but the window list applet seems to lack functionality one has come to expect from window lists, namely that I can't minimize/unminimize/give focus to/resize/move/close a...
  6. [ubuntu] photo print on Epson WP-4530 with epson-201113 stops

    I have an Epson WP-4530, and find myself having to print a photograph on it.

    [all variants] Re: PepperFlash on Google Chrome

    I am definitely having problems. I hate to have to admit to playing any Zynga games, but--since installing Version 20.0.1132.47 of Chrome, they almost always crash.

    I think it's something about how LibreOffice renders the page on the display. I have a document that I've been editing in LibreOffice, and on the screen it looks like used cattle feed warmed over:...

    [ubuntu] Re: flash shows through on other windows

    Aargh. Right clicking indeed brings that up, but clicking to turn off the hardware acceleration appears to have no effect--the checkmark remains checked.

    [ubuntu] flash shows through on other windows

    Since this past Sunday, I've noticed something strange: if I have a browser open to a Flash video, the Flash video shows through the strokes of the characters of other windows.

  13. [gnome] overstruck font name in GNOME font manager

    What does it mean when the GNOME font manager shows the name of a font in the list labeled "Family" but shows it overstruck and not in boldface? Looking through the font manager help doesn't turn up...

  18. [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Re: How does lightdm determine which sessions to show as options?

    Thank you! It turns out that my real problem lay elsewhere; I had not installed a needed package that I can't believe I overlooked, i.e. e17 itself. In any case, I have learned more about .desktop...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: How does lightdm determine which sessions to show as options?

    More info: I notice that some of the .desktop files contain either

    NoDisplay=true

    or

    Hidden=true

    I'll see whether getting rid of NoDisplay=true makes the AfterStep option appear, but...
