  1. [SOLVED] Re: 13.10 'gnome classic' top-menu bar not actually the 'classic' one on fresh instal

    Fixed - thank you!

    (Also, I got back the 'suspend' option which is missing from the upper-right on the 'new' menu).
  2. [SOLVED] Re: 13.10 'gnome classic' top-menu bar not actually the 'classic' one on fresh instal

    I've been trying to fix this with 'tweak tool'. The 'font scaling factor' I've reduced to 0.9 which is helpful on this smallish screen (1366x768), but it doesn't increase the number of items visible...

    [ubuntu] Re: nvidia settings can't save to conf file

    Didn't work for me. Same problem, 9.10 on 86_64, and 185.18.36 drivers. nvidia-settings choked on the empty file ('At least one Device section is required' to the tty and then segfaulted). Do you...

    [ubuntu] Re: How do i fix (how do I restore MBR)

    The grub install places code in the master boot record, when booting it loads a config from /boot/grub/grub.cfg, which is probably deleted now. You need to restore the MBR to what it was before you...
  10. [ubuntu] Python install under wine messes up gnome icons

    A few weeks ago I installed Python2.2.3 for Windows in my Wine (which was 1.1.38ish at the time, I think). Why? I needed to do some automated cleanup of the wine registry.

    [SOLVED] Re: Can't make nvidia driver work

    Well, I just booted the 9.10 LiveCD and that offered a restricted driver (185) so that's good news. I'll probably upgrade to 10.4 when that comes out.

    Yes, it has been OK in the past, but also has occurred before.
