    [ubuntu] Re: unable to update

    Hm... Wasn't the sources.list.d directory taken into use later than 10.04?

    Well, see what this altered command does, then:

    (It turns out I don't have enpaq...
  2. [other] Re: Mplayer language select hates me... HARD

    This doesn't happen using SMPlayer, no. (Add the latest available GNOME Shell environment to the list of affected ingredients. I also picked a new Gtk+ theme, and still get the crash.)
  3. [other] Mplayer language select hates me... HARD

    I'm having a problem with MPlayer: Whenever I go into Settings and try to set any of the language options, it breaks my desktop. What I see is that the terminal appears, shortly after which I'm sent...

    Oh, wrong, am I, and you report seeing exactly what I said you would see? ;)

    [ubuntu] Re: remapping keyboard letters

    Until someone comes along with the suggestion you're looking for, I believe there is an on-screen keyboard or two you could try. You'll have to look for them under Accessibility, mind.

    [lubuntu] Re: locale settings

    Having a few different rc.local seems normal - I think I have some numbered .1, .2, .3... Anyway. Those are actually nothing like the rc.local I hoped you'd find. Did you open /etc/rc.local, not some...

    [lubuntu] Re: locale settings

    I'm not sure if it'll solve anything, but if it were me, I'd open rc.local and check my locale settings in that file. (Edit, save, reboot will probably be necessary.) I typically use sudo nano, but...

  12. [ubuntu] Re: i need libvlc2 but i cant install it

    I'm far too swedish to suggest it's the best method, but in my experience, it works. I remember having the same issue once, and that's how I resolved it.
  13. [ubuntu] Re: i need libvlc2 but i cant install it

    There's a command line invocation that lets APT provide suggestions, but I don't remember exactly what it looks like. What I would recommend, however, is pulling up Synaptic and remove (consider...

    [ubuntu] Re: Internet slow in 11.10

    I see two options: Reverting to an earlier version of Network Manager, or waiting for the next update, to see if either fixes it. It could also be a driver, which is baked into the kernel. (In this...

    This just doesn't sound good... Have you checked the CD for errors? It should be another option at boot.
  20. [ubuntu] Re: I installed gnome 3 on ubuntu 11.04 and i cant boot

    Hm... Maybe X.org got a bad update along the way, or the graphics driver's kernel module failed to build? Can you boot into rescue mode?

    Even so: if you want Gnome 3, follow raja.genupula's advice.
