    [ubuntu] Re: Bad sectors occurring on laptop (trusty)

    [ubuntu] Re: Bad sectors occurring on laptop (trusty)

    Gnome Disk Utility reports it as ATA ST9250827AS so I guess it's a Seagate. Capacity is 250gb. I've read Seagate are the least reliable but that's what the system came with.

    [SOLVED] Re: Systray in 14.04

    Thanks guys. I am waiting to see if I can get this functionality for a particular app before I upgrade from 13.10 -> 14.04. Looks like it's probably safe for me to upgrade and use gurqn PPA.

    [ubuntu] Re: AMD Legacy Drivers in Ubuntu 13.04?

    Fair enough if you have a high-end card. I couldn't get the Open Source drivers to work on my system with Unity. I guess I will avoid Radeon like the plague in future.

    [ubuntu] Re: New Unity, whitelist disabled = bad

    Fair enough. It's a working solution for the time-being at least. But yeah I agree that Canonical have done users a disservice with the removal of the white-list.
