    [ubuntu] Re: Ocelot has no min/max/shutdown controls?

    As I mentioned, hovering over the area where the min/max/shutdown (mmx)controls should be does nothing. As for examples, Thunderbird recovered all my past e-mails nicely, but when I open the app...

    [ubuntu] Ocelot has no min/max/shutdown controls?

    Okay, I first tried the Upgrade function to move from 11.04 to 11.10. That was an unmitigated disaster. I then wiped the old Ubuntu partition and swap file and tried a new install, which worked. I...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Please tell me there's a way to downgrade from 11.10 to 11.04

    Installing 11.10 may have been the biggest mistake in my life, and I've been married twice. First I tried to upgrade, which was an absolute failure. What appeared on the screen after startup was a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Before I upgrade to 11.04?

    THANK YOU, Hedge! For a few horrible minutes there I thought I was stuck in Win 7 mode. You should post that warning as a separate thread to let people know there's an easy alternative to the new...

    Poll: Re: What is your age and what do you use ubuntu for?

    I'll be 67 in 3 weeks, but I've retained the immaturity of a small child and still keep pushing the envelope. I use Karmic for everything except CorelDraw, which I've been using since version 2.0 and...

    [ubuntu] Re: Seamonkey upgrade

    Thanks, nano. I'm afraid I've been spoiled by 20 years of Windows one-click installs. I've been trying to install SeaMonkey 2 for the better part of the day and still no luck. I'll read the...

    I'm with Jerzma on this. I junked Win 7 because of the incessant need to give approvals, permissions, authentications, etc, etc, only to discover Ubuntu is, if anything, worse. As a new convert (my...

    I'm a new convert running Karmic, and I love it. A trial run of Heliode's backup-and-restore method worked fine for me. However, I have a new desktop on the way and, although I've searched this and...
