    After "upgrading" to 12.10 I am getting an "unsupported mode" error from my 40" Coby TV (monitor). I am getting the same error whether I use the onboard VGA connection or my Galaxy GeForce 9500 GT...

    Come to think of it, I do have IA32 libs installed already so didn't notice the change... Just can't bring myself to use Chrome instead of Chromium....

    [SOLVED] Current Chromium ppa

    I am using this post as a note-to-self, if it helps you, even better.

    The Chromium-Browser available through the repositories is unfortunately very outdated. Fortunately there is a simple fix.

    Re: (Re)designing Ubuntu

    Here's my take:
    A basic install on a Live CD, and a more robust Live DVD. Most legacy computers in use today are equipped with CD-ROM drives, but newer computers are shipping with DVD or Blu-Ray...

    I first began using MS DOS in order to run Adobe PageMaker in Windows 2.4 in college. Prior to that, my household computer was a Colecovision ADAM.

    [ubuntu] Re: Title bars missing with Compiz

    Try checking to see if compiz-fusion and its various parts are still installed. That's what I just got finished doing, and, voila! title bars have returned.
  11. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    It's really not advisable to map ANY buttons to your scroll-wheel. Gnome already knows what to do with them by default. I suggest that you click on "disable", and try it then. If that doesn't solve...

    A couple of things to consider:
    1.)Virtualization software only mimics an actual system, in other words, instead of having access to your real mouse, it creates a virtual mouse (vmmouse) which...

    Unfortunately, neither method is working for me. I'm running 64bit Ubuntu 8.04, and no matter what I've tried, and where I've put libflashplayer.so, I can't seem to get Flash 10 beta to work.

  14. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    It means that although you can set a key to be for example right_alt, btnx will only read a single button press at a time, which means if you hit and hold right_alt, and left_click, btnx only reads...
  15. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Btnx can do everything you want except allow a button to be used as a standalone modifier key. That's not currently a supported feature.

    Revoco is designed to trigger a hardware response from only 2 mouses on the market:

  17. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    It's pretty obvious that some people in the process are trying to "fix" things by making X,GDM, and other parts respond to things such as "multimedia buttons" and the things that stop working/change...

    It's apparently not a KDE application problem, as I have the same issue, and am running a new hardy/gnome install. I do have my home folder from my previous installs, so it could possibly be related...
  21. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Other than the sleeping issue, how'd it go? (Detection, etc?)
    Was it only while using a dedicated USB dongle just for the mouse, or was it through an onboard bluetooth chip, or a generic dongle?

  24. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    This is exactly the problem. Btnx reads only one button at a time, not one button + another button.
    My suggestion is to assign your fourth button to BTN_LEFT + KEY_LEFTCTRL + KEY_LEFTALT
    One...
  25. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Currently, that's not possible, as btnx can only handle one button press at a time.
    I think that Daou has it on his to do list, though.
