  1. [xubuntu] Re: HOW-TO: Get your clock's text vertical in xfce panel

    This does not seem to work on the newest release of Xubuntu, 12.04. It works fine on 11.10. Any ideas?

    [SOLVED] Redmond Window Theme Gone in 12.04

    It seems that the "Redmond" theme is only available in the "Appearance" settings, and not in the "Window Manager" settings in 12.04, meaning that I cannot get my title bar looking right. Does anyone...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Linux Kernel 3.0 Battery Life/Power Consumption

    The Sandy Bridge power issue is solved, and the patch is applied to the Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) kernel, and RC6 is enabled by default with this kernel, so no kernel parameters are required, etc.

    As...

  6. Re: Slow wireless, ubuntu 11.10. thinkpad x220

    I'm also seeing this on my X220. Mine has the Intel Centrino Wireless N-1000 card, but some X220's have the Realtek chip. I have heard of users having problems with both. I filed a bug here for the...

  8. [SOLVED] Re: Linux Kernel 3.0 Battery Life/Power Consumption

    Potentially bad news: I started experiencing freezes again on my X220 with RC6 enabled and the new (tunable RC6) kernel. The freezes only occur (so far) while using LibreOffice Calc, but they are...
  9. [xubuntu] Re: Ethernet (which I'm not using) using 60% of computer's power?

    No change. Ethernet still listed as using 5 W in PowerTOP; overall power consumption still the same. Maybe it's just an error in PowerTOP? Any other ideas? Thanks!
  10. [xubuntu] Re: Ethernet (which I'm not using) using 60% of computer's power?

    I cannot turn ethernet off altogether in the BIOS, but Wake-on-LAN was already off in the BIOS. As for the output of the lspci command:

  11. [xubuntu] Ethernet (which I'm not using) using 60% of computer's power?

    I noticed something strange from PowerTOP today. My laptop only burns about 8-9 Watts of power, but PowerTOP claims that 5-6 Watts of that comes from my ethernet (which I am not using at all...it's...

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Linux Kernel 3.0 Battery Life/Power Consumption

    I have tested the patched kernel for about 24 hours now, and it is working beautifully! My battery lasts almost 50% longer (6 hours vs 4.2 hours) than with RC6 disabled, and there are NO glitches or...

  17. [SOLVED] Re: Linux Kernel 3.0 Battery Life/Power Consumption

    I have tested kernel 3.2.1 (from here: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.2.1-precise/ ) on my ThinkPad X220, and it seems to use a tad MORE power than kernel 3.0. Ugh.

    I'm not sure how that's really a workaround...It doesn't bring my screen back without rebooting. Doing SysRq + REISUB is equally good (but still awful). Please do post a link to a bug report if you...
