    [ubuntu] Re: Is IBM T43 good for Ubuntu?

  11. Re: HowTo: Compiz Fusion in Hardy on cards with "ati"/"radeon" open source drivers

    sorry 'bout the bump - but does anybody have any idea about this?
  14. [ubuntu] Re: After Hardy upgrade: compiz will only start with sudo

    Thanks for your reply! I know I could do that but I certainly don't want compiz to be running as root! And after using it like that for a couple of hours now, it doesn't "feel" all that good to me -...
