Re: 7900gt and Hardy Haron?
Hello, I'm no expert at Ubuntu but I can tell you that Automatix is not yet available for Hardy. As for your Video card I saw somewhere this command "lspci" to view your Video card. When I insert this command in a terminal I see I have the Nvidia 8600. Open a terminal as follow: Applications-Accessories-Terminal from there insert the above command lspci no quotations. If you see the Nvidia 7900 I would guess your using your Nvidia card. Also, make sure you installed the Nvidia drivers, to assure you can make the most of your card. Ubuntu makes it easy to add you'll just have to agree to the terms, since this is a Nvidia proprietary driver. I have been unable to do all the cool stuff you see at youtube nevertheless, I can do the wiggly thing, the pages look like their made of rubber. For me that's enough, but try looking here and see if it helps: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=530988 I believe you'll need to install Emerald theme manager I think it was from Synaptic, System-Administration-synaptic and do a search for Emerald. You might need to install Advance Desktop Settings, (DON'T REMEMBER IF THIS CAME INSTALLED OR I INSTALLED IT, SORRY but u can check in your own system). If I installed it chances are it was from Synaptic. Yes, you can get Amarok for Ubuntu, I believe you'll need to go to Applications-add/remove and find Amarok there and install by clicking on the box next to it. For the mp3/dvd codecs you'll need to add Medibuntu (since Automatix is not yet available) see here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu. I would add Medibuntu before Amarok, just a feeling. Hope this helps a little until someone who really knows Ubuntu well can help you better. My knowledge is very limited at best. Good luck!
