    Re: I'm Leaving

    It seems then that the consensus of the Ubuntu communtity is that having high expectations is stupid, that expecting each release to be better than the last is stupid, that comparing the quality of...

    Re: I'm Leaving

    You did read the first sentence of my previous post right? Go back and read it again, it will answer your question.

    Re: I'm Leaving

    I always try the latest release of Ubuntu just to see how bad it is compared to the 10.04 release and frankly it has been always been slow, clunky and unstable, with every release worse than the...
  4. Re: Do you use (X,K,L)Ubuntu as your one an only OS?

    Yes and no.

    Xubuntu has become my OS of choice on my main machines, but my little eee-pc 701 is running Crunchbang although I am thinking it would be fun to install a minimal Ubuntu and set up my...
  5. Sticky:Poll: Re: Share with us your Trusty (14.04) Upgrade & Installation Experiences

    Installed Xubuntu 14.04 and (for a while) Ubuntu 14.04 on a few machines. It's been pretty much flawless except I get a couple of system errors when I resume from suspend to ram. If I don't figure...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: cannot install ubuntu from usb on pc (usb made on mac)

    It might be because it is booting from eufi rather than bios. Most eufi systems have an option to boot in legacy or bios mode, probably somewhere under the advanced tab. I've never had much luck...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: cannot install ubuntu from usb on pc (usb made on mac)

    I'm afraid my Windows knowledge is nearly as outdated as my fashion sense. The last Windows OS i used was XP! Does Windows 7 come with an installer disk? If so you may be able to boot to recovery...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: I'm a complete Ubuntu Newbie, Please suggest me some tips to get started

    The best way to get started is to forget about learning a new operating system; instead learn to use it for day to day computing which to be honest is how everyone learnt their way around Windows or...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: cannot install ubuntu from usb on pc (usb made on mac)

    Using the command
    dd if=ubuntu-14.04-desktop-amd64.iso of=/dev/YOUR_USBBKEY_HERE bs=4M conv=sync worked absolutely fine to create a bootable usb key. I was also able to do the same for Xubuntu. You...

    Re: Windows Best Help

    My record is about 1/2 hour for keeping these guys on the line. It could have been longer but I had to go out. I told him "it's been fun yanking your chain but I've got to go out now so I can't play...

  14. Re: Compile from source vs Install from package

    I used to compile from source a lot back in my Slackware days. If you have older hardware, by which I mean very old, then compiling software on your computer can give a reasonable speed boost. The...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu doesn't shut down

    When you say it doesn't shut down properly, that could mean many things.

    1. Is it actually shutting down, but giving a message at next boot?
    2. Do you get to a black screen but the computer...

    Midori is worth a look also and if being open source isn't critical then check out Opera.

    You may have encountered this already but just in case, I'll just add that entering your password in a terminal looks like nothing is happening; but it is.

    [SOLVED] Re: REISUB Disabled in 14.04?

    You should be able to regain full control of SysRq by editing the file etc/sysctl.d/10-magic-sysrq.conf and changing the line kernel.sysrq = 176 to kernel.sysrq = 1 and then rebooting after saving.

    Re: Moving the Unity Launcher bar
