  1. Re: Advice on restoring evolution from home backup

    Those files can be imported into Evolution or Thunderbird since they contain your mail boxes. You won't be able to import your address book that way though. Just check the largest files in the...

    [all variants] Re: [HOWTO] Fix "popping" sound in 11.04 Natty

    Sadly enough it didn't work for me. How can you check if the changes had any effect?

    Edit: It's much less frequent though.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Why does mouse freeze? Is there an error log?

    Network Manager can make your system come to a grinding halt. For me this happens when I connect with unstable networks.

    [SOLVED] Re: Problems installing MPLAYER

    Maybe you'll have more luck with GStreamer based software (Totem for example). See this thread for more information.

    [SOLVED] Re: Problems installing MPLAYER

    Why are you attempting to compile your own version of MPlayer? If you want to install the missing libavcodec file you will need to search in Synaptic.
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Synaptic says I have Google Earth installed but I can't find it to run it

    Start Google Earth by typing "googleearth" after pressing alt+f2 (start an application) or by typing "googleearth" in the terminal. If that works you can add a menu item yourself.

    [ubuntu] Re: did I install Firefox 4 correctly?

    Correct, or you can change the alias (which I wouldn't recommend if you still have the other firefox installed).

    [ubuntu] Re: did I install Firefox 4 correctly?

    You have nothing to worry about. All things you did were correct. The only issue would be that the "firefox" alias (in the commandline for example) still links to your old Firefox version.

    There are no restricted drivers needed for a GMA 3100 (there are only open source drivers). It should work out of the box.

    [ubuntu] Re: Keep Totem on Top

    You can click on the icon in the left top corner from Totem (or any other program) and select "Always on top". Right clicking the window on Gnome panel and selecting "Always on top" is also possible.

    [ubuntu] Re: Is my Ubuntu secure?

    If you only install programs from trusted sources (Ubuntu repositories) there is nothing to worry about. Ubuntu is reasonable secure by default.
  17. [all variants] Re: Can anybody help me play mp4 files on mplayer? :)

    What version of MPlayer and Ubuntu are you using? That error message means that MPlayer is not compiled with faad support (for MPEG4 audio support).

    You can graphically navigate to "/usr/bin" and search for "unstuff" with nautilus (the file manager).
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Missing desktop, No right click, Can't open folder HELP!!

    If you want to backup your files you can always boot into a live cd and copy your files to a usb device. Just reboot to see if it works again. You won't lose your files from rebooting.
