    [ubuntu] Re: Dell studio 1558 high fan speed issue

    Interesting; I'm running Kubuntu 12.04 on the same model laptop (except mine's a bit differently-configured; i5, 500GB platter-stack HDD, Radeon HD graphics) and don't really see much fan use...

    Re: how to root android under ubuntu

    That depends on the manufacturer of the phone. For Samsung phones, for example, you can use Heimdall for that. Instructions for Ubuntu installation can be found here.

    Re: Installing a deb file: dpkg not found

    You can use Alien to do this; Alien is a neat little tool that converts back and forth between RPM and Debian packages (plus SLPs and .tgz packages). First, see if you can install it via yum:

    Softlanding Linux System

  6. [xubuntu] Re: Screen dimmed/blank on resume from sleep (xscreensaver issue?)

    If you haven't seen my posts on the bug's entry in Launchpad, here's what I did to work around this problem if it appears. This is only tested with a Radeon-based card (in my case, an ATI Mobility...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Belkin USB Network Hub installation and operation

    I realize this thread is a bit old, but we might have some progress.

    I plastered up a teardown of the F5L009 on iFixit using one of these that I happened to pick up at my town's local thrift...

    [SOLVED] Re: Clean up hidden files after package removal

    sudo apt-get clean

    That gets rid of any package files left over.

    The stuff in the home directory is safe to delete if you don't plan on re-installing the software. Just make sure there's...

    [all variants] Re: Civilization V graphics issue..

    I agree with the person in the last post. What exactly is the graphics problem? I don't see one in the screenshot. Which makes sense: at least from what I understand, a software-based screenshot...

    [ubuntu] Re: WUBI ignores ISO and tries to download

    I'm pretty sure Wubi has to use the standard LiveCD (the 700 MB one). DVD and alternate .iso's aren't supported. Although, if it's on the DVD itself, I would think it wouldn't need to download a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Flash player refuses to work!!

    Are you able to install the 32-bit verison with the 32-bit wrapper, as was done before the 64-bit version was released?
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Wine won't run any game, but runs software fine

    Generally, anything that requires any form of graphics acceleration is, in my experience, incompatible with Wine. I don't know about Borderlands, but I know that Civ4 uses at least some 3d graphics,...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Update causes extra copies of Ubuntu in Grub

    The GRUB installer does that automatically, in case you still want to use the old kernels for some reason. If you don't want those ones to show up, edit grub.cfg or menu.lst (depending on which GRUB...

    [SOLVED] Re: How do I fix a broken package?

    Have you tried booting your kernel in recovery mode (accessible from the GRUB menu) and selecting the "Fix Broken Packages" (I think that's what it's called) option in the recovery menu?
  16. [ubuntu] Re: should i upgrade from 8.04 to the latest version?

    I actually just attempted an upgrade from 8.04 to 9.10. Something to keep in mind, though, is that to upgrade without performing a clean installation, you have to work your way up the Ubuntu...

    [ubuntu] Karmic totally wigging out on first boot

    So I just performed a clean install of Ubuntu 9.10. Everything seemed to go perfectly fine until I tried to boot. After the initial Ubuntu logo, it jumped to a text-based login:

    Did you have to change any BIOS settings to get the other drive to work?

    Also, just to clarify, is this an IDE or SATA drive?

    Hmm... After taking a bit of a deeper look at the error message, it looks like it's having difficulty recognising which hard drive to read the operating system from. The kernel is obviously loading...

  22. [ubuntu] Re: Can't escape from the clutches of my screensaver!

    Yeah. I think I got all of them. It was a dual boot of Ubuntu 8.04 (when I started the upgrade process; it was "9.04" [not really] before the blinking cursor of death) and Windows 2000 Advanced...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Can't escape from the clutches of my screensaver!

    Too late. Once I got the blinking cursor of death, I rebooted (which probably killed the installation). I used the Live CD to back up any files that I hold dear over the network before installing...

    You're not the first to bypass the most obvious places. I do it all the time :D

    Glad I could help.
  25. [ubuntu] Re: Can't escape from the clutches of my screensaver!

    Great... now I do another ctrl-alt-F2 to check up on the install, and it's hanging with a blinking cursor, not responding to anything.

    Thankfully, if I do reboot this and break the system, I can...
