  2. [ubuntu] Re: Could someone point me in the right direction?

    Unfortunately, ubuntu is quite sensitive to unfinished/cancelled updates - as I've experienced myself.

  3. [ubuntu] Re: Could someone point me in the right direction?

    [ubuntu] Re: Notepad++ Like Program in Ubuntu ?

    Notepad++ is based on the Scintilla library. I would suggest Geany, as this also uses this library; you can find it in the software center. Or perhaps Bluefish; i don't know whether this has all...

  19. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 10.04 Cache-Limit error (can't install sun-java6-jdk)

    I believe the Sun jdk is no longer supported for Ubuntu, because of license issues (in a nutshell: Oracle is being difficult). You will have to use the Openjdk these days.
