    I have used Cairo-Dock in many previous Ubuntu releases, and have always had some sort of menu with a search bar, so that I can start typing the name of a program and have it pop up, much the same...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: B0rked my system, with encrypted HDD, lost encryption key, cannot mount drive

    Unfortunately, no. It was in a folder on my desktop, and my desktop folder doesn't get backed up because it's pretty much just my "dump space" for partially completed projects and whatnot. As...
  4. [ubuntu] B0rked my system, with encrypted HDD, lost encryption key, cannot mount drive

    Cannot update my system at all

    Hi all... It's been forever since I've posted on here. I consider myself a very seasoned Ubuntu user, and usually can solve problems myself or with the help of the all-knowing Google. But I've hit...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu USB very slow?

    What I don't understand is that Mint is, for all intents and purposes, Ubuntu with some different software thrown in. Whatever is included in Mint that allows my awesome transfer speeds should work...

    [ubuntu] Ubuntu USB very slow?

    So I've been using Mint for about 2 years, and recently switched back to Ubuntu at the request of my wife, who prefers it, and to be honest, I missed Ubuntu as well. We downloaded Natty so we could...
  11. [ubuntu] Using multiple wireless connections simultaneously?

    Looks like that had nothing to do with google earth, but instead a problem with dpkg. Try following the link I posted and downloading the .deb directly.

  20. [ubuntu] Re: Google Earth installs fine but crashes instantly upon launch

    That was mentioned. From what I've read, it usually works. In my case, however, it didn't work. I did find a solution in case disabling the startup tips does not work.

  25. [ubuntu] Re: Google Earth installs fine but crashes instantly upon launch

    This did not work for me. I tried several times, and successfully unchecked the box on more than one occasion. But Google Earth still crashes every time I start it, and always re-checks the box.
