    So my 2TB disk has an ext4 filesystem, but no partitions. I think this came about as the result of a ddrescue operation in which I apparently forgot to partition the current drive before resucing...

    It sounds like Ubuntu is working just fine, so I'm not sure what you hope to acheive in an Ubuntu support forum.

    Vista didn't get a bad reputation for being awesome. I would suggest seeking...

  6. /dev/sdb doesn't contain valid partition table - yet still mounts?

    I have a 2TB disk (sdb) which is mounted as ext4, and works fine.

    I need to move it to a new machine, though, and I just discovered something odd.

    fdisk and parted both complain that sdb has no...

    The solution is to install gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio
  8. Can't use Cheese to record a video? I have the solution

    Cheese's latest bug seems to be that attempting to record a video locks up the program, or at the very least results in a video that won't save.

  13. [ubuntu] How can I make xinput settings persistent?

    This is very frustrating.

  15. [ubuntu] Re: Script will not run at login, but runs fine manually

    Thanks, that did it. I had tried adding "sleep 10" but that did nothing so I removed it. I am less impressed with 10* than I was with 8*

    Oh well, thanks for you help man!

    I have that set up. If memory serves, this fixed the erratic mouse movement when two finger scrolling was activated. I don't even have the option to activate it because it is greyed out.

    The two finger scrolling option is greyed out, so I can't even enable it, much less activate the fix.

    Any ideas?
