    nohup HandBrakeCLI <options> &
  2. Re: Pasting formulae copied from Libreoffice Calc?

  3. Re: Pasting formulae copied from Libreoffice Calc?

    Ahhh, I didn't know you could do that.

    Re: Screen Brightness not working.

    My Toshiba NB555D (older model than the OP's, with AMD C30; Radeon HD 6250) exhibited the same issue after upgrading from 11.10 to 12.04.

  12. [ubuntu] Re: 11.04 installation freezes on "copying files"

    Wow, that sounds easy. I'll give it a shot later this week when I get some spare time.
