  1. [ubuntu] Re: Guide: Openswan, XL2TP and PPP on Ubuntu Maverick for iPhone VPN Connection

    It works! Holy cow! I don't know why it is so hard to setup VPN on Ubuntu, but I REALLY appreciate this tutorial for VPN beginners like me. I can now VPN to my home network from the road, and browse...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: how do I listen to audio input through the speakers

    Wow, that's not overly complicated or anything. Why doesn't it just f**king work when you turn up the mic volume in Alsamixer?

    Anyway, thanks for the solution. Worked flawlessly.

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Choose Application in Firefox shows a file browser?

    I think the bigger problem is that it doesn't work. Often links to podcasts present the user with the "choose an application ..." dialog. Even if you select a valid application (/usr/bin/whatever) or...

    Define "nothing" :) Does that mean it ignored you and continued applying the Emerald theme? Did that persist after a logout/login?

    [SOLVED] Re: 3d desktop cube?

    Try:
    sudo apt-get install compiz-fusion-plugins-extra
    The 3D windows still don't seem to work out of the box, but it does get you closer to the cube you wanted.

    I am curious at what point the system is unable to continue deleting files as a result of critical system files having been deleted. I might have to try this too (in a VM, as matt_symes suggests).
