    [kubuntu] Re: Inconsistent sound

    What line? There isn't a line 57 in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, nor does the word "timer" appear in the file. This bit looks suspicious though:

    [kubuntu] Unable to shut down KDE graphically

    Though I can do an sudo shutdown -P now from konsole, that doesn't save the KDE session so I really want to shut down the right way. Clicking the normal shutdown menu item will grey the screen, but...

    [kubuntu] Re: Can't shut down

    As I said in the first post, console-based shutdown works fine -- but on reboot after that, KDE still can't shut down from the visual menu item. Doesn't it indicate a problem when KDE's shutdown...

    [kubuntu] Inconsistent sound

    This is with Kubuntu 9.10.

    Most of the last week, I haven't been getting any sound in any program. Yet sometimes everything randomly decides to work in every program after a reboot. Sometimes that...
  7. [kubuntu] Re: Touchpad not working (Aspire One AO751h)

    Okay, by installing the psb drivers I got the touchpad working -- though it'd be nice to be able to use the touchpad with the VESA driver like in 9.04.
  8. [kubuntu] Touchpad not working (Aspire One AO751h)

  9. [kubuntu] Re: Kubuntu 9.04 3D driver in Acer Aspire One AO751h

    Have you tried anything 3D on those distros, like neverputt or google earth, and found them fast? Regular stuff works fine. Enabling 3D makes it extremely unstable.

    I haven't tried it myself yet (haven't even done 9.04 yet), but I've read that the 9.10 kernel doesn't work with the proprietary 3D driver for the aspire one's graphics card, and Intel doesn't plan...

    64 MB isn't enough to run a general purpose modern OS like Ubuntu 8.04 (Ubuntu requires 256 MB RAM), so you'll need to get a distribution that's designed for old computers.
