  1. [ubuntu] Re: Slow restore from suspend on Acer Aspire 7552G

    I actually never had the wireless failing on resume- everything would work fine, it would just take forever. I had the same issue of having to manually enable wireless in network-manager. However,...
  2. [ubuntu] Slow restore from suspend on Acer Aspire 7552G

    I just got a new Acer Aspire 7552G and the first thing I did was install Ubuntu 10.10 x64 on it. Everything works out of the box (I'm using the fglrx driver for the ATI graphics card) but it takes 5...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: "No such file or directory" error on executing binaries

    That fixed it. Thank you.
  4. [SOLVED] "No such file or directory" error on executing binaries

    I am actually running Linux Mint 10 64-bit, which should be essentially identical to Ubuntu 10.10.

    When I attempt to execute a Linux binary file that I have downloaded from the internet, I get the...

    Re: Your chess setup?

    PyChess has improved, but I still wonder what the deal is on some points. It defaults to having my strongest engine analyzing in the background—while I'm playing games on FICS! Obviously...

    My 3-year-old Macbook can last up to 4.5-5 hours on battery, and the newer models (depending on which one) allegedly get somewhere from 6-10 hours. This is partly because Apple has very nice...

    [other] Re: Pangolin Preformance?

    Thanks for the reply. How bad is 3d performance in the open-source driver, and is it still being developed? I'm not really into gaming, so a lack of 3d graphics isn't necessarily a deal-breaker.

    [other] Re: Pangolin Preformance?

    Only 2 hours? That's pretty disappointing... I was considering looking at a Panoglin Performance, but I often need my laptop to survive several hours when taking notes in class.

    [kde] Re: No "Shutdown" option under "Leave"

    Thanks for the tip, but I've since migrated back to GNOME. It's a bit faster, and I tend to use more GTK apps than Qt anyways.

    That's what I've been doing, but I'd much prefer to just shutdown from KDE.

    [kde] No "Shutdown" option under "Leave"

    Kubuntu 9.10 KDE4.3. I actually had installed regular Ubuntu first and then added kubuntu-desktop on top of it. For some reason, when I click the K menu and go to "Leave" there is no option to...
  13. [kubuntu] Re: Karmic won't install properly- bootloader/rEFIt issues, it appears

    Running gptsync tells me that the partition tables are already synchronized, so it does nothing. Holding down option and selecting Windows also fails to boot.

    It is unlikely to be a...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Write to HFS+ and Set Permissions for Mac HD

    I normally just transfer all my files over with an external HD, or else you could use an online synchronization service like Ubuntu One. I'm not sure of the status of HFS+ support in Linux, but I...
  15. [kubuntu] Re: Karmic won't install properly- bootloader/rEFIt issues, it appears

    So we've confirmed this issue exists. And yet there are several threads of people with other Karmic problems, implying that their installations worked fine... what are they doing differently than us?...

    I'm running a MacBook 3,1, Ubuntu and assorted derivatives have historically installed without too much trouble on this machine.

    Installing Kubuntu Karmic seemed to go fine, but when I rebooted...

    Re: A new Desktop Environment?

    A laptop was a better choice than a desktop for me, and getting a dedicated graphics card would have cost a lot more. I'm getting a bit sick of your hardware snobbery. The fact remains: on my...

    Integrated graphics aren't easily replaced without just getting a new laptop, which is unnecessary when my current one runs just fine. I don't really do any gaming, so I don't need a high-powered...

    I have tried KDE in Kubuntu, Debian, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Sabayon, and PC-BSD. Most of my KDE experience comes from Debian. Way to make unfounded assumptions. Without desktop effects, yes, KDE is faster...
