    [all variants] Re: Ubuntu releases

    My problem isn't with 11.04 per se. I quite like it for the most part, but if someone wanted to try Ubuntu, went to the website, downloaded and installed 11.04 (because that is what the website...

    [all variants] Re: Ubuntu releases

    I think what happens is that every Ubuntu release starts off not particularly stable, it's just that the LTS releases get longer to stabilise and be perfected. The 6 month releases soon get ditched....

    [all variants] Ubuntu releases

    This almost certainly belongs in recurring discussions, but here's my ha'penny's worth nonetheless:

    [SOLVED] Re: No HD recognised in install

    The solution suggested in the 2nd thread didn't work for me, however I have cured this.

    Thanks,

    It's a single hard disk, and I've never messed around with the hardware since I bought it, but it was a RAID array I think - FastBuild flashes up when I boot up the computer telling me...

    [SOLVED] No HD recognised in install

    PROBLEM:

    When trying to install Kubuntu 10.04 32-bit (or Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit) it does not show me any hard drive to partition in the 'Disk Setup' (I've clicked all the buttons on that screen to...
  8. [SOLVED] apt-get / aptitude - what's the difference?

    What's the difference between apt-get and aptitude?

    Could I use either to effectively update my system? (ie. do "apt-get update" and "aptitude update" do the same thing?)

    So do you use Ubuntu or Windows or both? The thing which tipped me over the edge (you need quite a push to do something as seemingly drastic as change from the operating system you've known and used...

    Re: Ubuntu cannot compete with OS X or Windows 7

    Indeed. I want it to look and run how I want it to run - it may not be to everyone's taste. With Ubuntu this is easy. With Windows I spent the best part of my working time on it trying to get it to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Memory Card Read Only

    Does it change anything that I've now tried it with another SD card and it too came up as read only. USB sticks, however, are no problem.

    It's an inbuilt 5 in 1 card reader on a Dell Inspiron.

    Re: Docky! the new awesome dock

    Just installed Lucid and installed Docky(2) straight from the repos - couple of issues:

    1) Can't find the show desktop plugin
    2) Battery meter plugin won't work - I click add, then nothing.
