    [SOLVED] Re: Changing the Unity panel name?

    Oh, I figured it out. Apparently the file I'm supposed to be changing is in fact /usr/share/locale-langpack/lt/LC_MESSAGES/unity-2d.mo and not the regular "unity.mo" (at least when running Ubuntu...

    [SOLVED] Changing the Unity panel name?

    I need to change the "Ubuntu Desktop" name that appears every time there is no program running on Unity. There has been a suggestion on Ask Ubuntu about that:...

  4. [ubuntu] Re: Alpha 3 and daily build don't boot properly

    Just tested on Gentoo with the 3.6.0-rc3 kernel, and the problem is there as well. It's nearly identical, although the trick with setting a parameter doesn't work.

  6. [ubuntu] Re: Alpha 3 and daily build don't boot properly

    I now built myself an image of openSUSE with kernel 3.5.0, and it works fine (with VESA again... Hmm, perhaps I should write them a message that they should build gma500_gfx by default...). So it's...

    All right, tried it, and Alpha 2 is regressed as well. I also tried openSUSE 12.2 RC1, and it worked fine in VESA mode (they don't have gma500_gfx built in the kernel, it seems). But then it uses...

    Oh, that's good to know. I thought they didn't build it because it was too unstable, and not because they weren't aware of it in the first place.

    By the way, it's 2012, not 2010 :D

    I have a very similar problem here as well, using Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 tablet, also with psb-gfx (gma500-gfx). The memory mapping is very similar, here it's 0x7f57900-0x7f57a000. According to...

    Are you sure it doesn't use psb_gfx when the vga option is supplied? Is there a way to tell whether it's being used or not? Since with that option, everything works pretty smoothly for me...

    For psb_gfx, the distribution doesn't matter. Any distro with a kernel > 3.0.0 should work, with a varied level of support.

    If it wasn't enabled, you wouldn't be able to start the framebuffer device at all (X would say that /dev/fb0 does not exist), so it's probably using psb-gfx, just not the latest version.
