  1. [ubuntu] Re: Delay when resizing,maximizing or restoring windows

    Alright, I've disabled desktop effects; however, the same problem appeared again when I enabled metacity compositing. I though it was software-based?
  2. [ubuntu] Delay when resizing,maximizing or restoring windows

    Every time I attempt to restore, maximize or resize a window, there's a noticeable delay (a couple of seconds) before it happens. This doesn't happen with desktop effects turned off, so I figured...

    I installed KOffice on my fresh 10.04, but it ended up pulling a whole lot of crap I don't need as dependencies... I managed to remove a couple of packages but the rest was a massive hell of...

    What would be the closest equivalent of MS Publisher for Linux, something that's fairly easy to use? Scribus is out of question, and OOo Draw and Impression are both a little lacking in terms of...

    [gnome] Metacity compositing problems

    IDK (yet) if it does this with any other apps, but whenever I enable Metacity compositing, Firefox goes wonky. For some reason, the view of the page isn't refreshed - it stays the same even when I...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Getting Synaptic to update on slower networks

    I wasn't sure if 40GB would be enough, so I made it 60GB... well, I know better now :p


    I've got that sorted out now ;)
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Adding user - "home directory already exists"

    The problem is fixed now. However, I could not delete the folder, because it was a mount point for a partition I made.

    Also, now that we're at it... since this (apparently) is a rather unorthodox...
  13. [ubuntu] Adding user - "home directory already exists"

    Well, I just finished installing 9.04. I created a partition for '/home', and I also created one for '/home/family/backups' on a different drive (as the name implies, it's basically a place for my...

    I'm not worried about space at all ;) What would be a good size for '/', though? 40GB? I want to be sure that it never gets full, but also I don't want to waste my HD space.

    Nope, didn't work. I typed in java -version, but the version number remains the same (1.6.0_0 instead of 1.6.0_13 which it should be). Also, it says OpenJDK, that's not the "official" sun-maintained...
