    [ubuntu] Re: LibreOffice open files disappearing

    Thanks, karlkropf! super+W is a very useful workaround. The bug has occurred 3 times so far this morning, which is unusually frequent. At least with super+W I don't have to restart my computer.

    [ubuntu] Re: LibreOffice open files disappearing

    The problem just recurred; I tried switching to a different workspace per efflandt's suggestion, but that had no effect.
  3. [ubuntu] Re: How do I put NOTES on files and folders in 12.04?

    Elsewhere blackbird34 hipped me to Thunar, which is a different file manager you can install that does support emblems. It's available through the Ubuntu Software Center, or you can install it in...

    [ubuntu] LibreOffice open files disappearing

    I'm having a recurring problem with LibreOffice in which I have a number of files open, but can't access them. Normally if I click on the LibreOffice icon to the left of the screen, I see small...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: How do I put NOTES on files and folders in 12.04?

    I have a solution, of sorts, to the missing "notes" option: install KDE.

    KDE uses a file management system called Dolphin that has a notes field; it also has the ability to put from 1 to 5 stars...

  8. [ubuntu] Re: missing file/folder NOTES & EMBLEMS (Ubuntu 10.04 ==> 12.04)

    Blackbird34, I took your advice and installed Thunar. So far it seems to be working fine. The emblems look great! That will help a bit, although as I said, it's the "notes" feature that is most...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: How do I put NOTES on files and folders in 12.04?

    Dang...I didn't know about that undocumented metafeature of Gnome. :wink:

    Thanks for the link; that helps explain why that feature disappeared. Evidently not many people used it...for me at least,...

    [other] Re: New Gazelle Professional Laptop Thread

    Hey, thanks! After reading your comment I decided to play a little further, and realized there were subtle sounds here and there (e.g the sound of my character being repeatedly decapitated).

    And...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: How do I put NOTES on files and folders in 12.04?

    Thanks for your reply, Traditionalist!

    As a non-technical user, I find the phrase "it is somewhat complex" a bit intimidating. :shock:

    But I will have a look at the link you posted and maybe...

    I've decide to take a new tack on this; I started a new thread asking how, moving forward, I can achieve a similar result on 12.04: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=12007136#post12007136

  13. [ubuntu] How do I put NOTES on files and folders in 12.04?

    In 10.04 I was used to putting notes on files (and sometimes folders)--I would right-click, select "notes" and then type anything from a few words to pages of info, quotes from the file etc. It was...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: missing file/folder NOTES & EMBLEMS (Ubuntu 10.04 ==> 12.04)

    Thanks again! Back in Time sounds useful. I just looked at the description, though, and it says it's a gnome program. Will that work in 12.04? I thought gnome had been replaced with Unity, or am I...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: missing file/folder NOTES & EMBLEMS (Ubuntu 10.04 ==> 12.04)

    Thanks for the reply, blackbird34. I'm going to hold off on that for now because I just got this computer and I don't want to mess around with things too much in case there are other...
  16. [ubuntu] missing file/folder NOTES & EMBLEMS (Ubuntu 10.04 ==> 12.04)

    I've just upgraded from a Pangolin Performance running 10.04 to a Gazelle Professional running 12.04, and right away I've encountered a serious problem that is affecting my work.

    On my Pang/10.04...

  20. Re: Humble Indie Bundle - Please only allow native titles in the HIB (Petition)

    That's what I'd be afraid of--I'd hate them to start seeing it as more trouble than it's worth.

    Generally speaking though, I've seen them getting a lot more positive than negative feedback, in...
  21. Re: Humble Indie Bundle - Please only allow native titles in the HIB (Petition)

    This is how I see it as well. I'm sure the petition is well-intentioned, but I don't think it's helpful. It looks to me like Humble Indie Bundle continues to more effectively support linux. Things...

    Yes, mainly I wanted to address chrismamo1's concern that the non-response could be a sign of financial difficulties at S76.

    But after writing that I sent S76 a message about this problem (via...

    I have to admit I'm feeling very impatient to see the new professional lineup (so I can relate to what hkarl629 said above). My Pangolin Performance has worked well for me but is now about 5 years...
