    Moreover, there isn't a specific build for atom, so in my point of view it is just like the default firefox from ubuntu, with some different config. No magic at all, you could do these changes directly in your firefox pointing it at about:config.
    Yes I saw in their forum that they recommend the prescot version as the gcc compiler does not have particular flags for Atom.
    What can I say? using it, I get a smoother scrolling, so something it does.
    About the config option, I did not know it. I will try...
    Thanks for the hint..

    in order to get a decent play of film on youtube, I tried to follow the steps described there:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...postcount=1727
    So I did:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:klich-lukasz/kleewho
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install gnome-mplayer gecko-mediaplayer
    Everything fine.
    When I tried to configure gnome-mplayer settings following the screenshots, I could not find the vaapi options. I do not use the Lucazade 's distro, but the official one. How can I get this library?
    Will they mess with VLC fix?

    Thanks you

    There isn't the option.. you have to write "vaapi" by hand in the input box.

    Possible bad news for the future, a Intel employee (Keith Packard) is calling for killing X modularisation, merging all (open source) drivers into xorg. Check the (wrongly named) phoronix discussion here.
    Just imagine what would have happened if xorg wasn't modular - we never would have been able to patch and hack the psb drivers into the new versions of xorg.

    hi i have read the guide on the first page of the thread and i have got to this part of the guide

    Open up your xorg.conf and add the below contents inside it.
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Make the Section "Device" Look like this :

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
    Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
    EndSection
    when i try open the xorg.conf file and add the changes to it it wont let me save the file afterwards saying i dont have permission and the files read only ????

    how do i edit the file???? also the line

    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    where in the xorg.conf file does it go

    thanks alot

    Follow the instructions of this wiki to install drivers in Lucid 10.04:

    No need to modify system files by hand, don't worry.

    If u want to work with ur webcam in cheese with some artifacts, try this:

    1. Install latest ffmpeg I used this link
      be sure to include --enable-vaapi when compiling ffmpeg
    2. Install gstreamer-vaapi
      ./configure
      make
      sudo checkinstall --default
    3. sudo ldconfig
    4. delete the file ~/.gstreamer-0.10/registry.i486.bin
    5. run in terminal "gstreamer-properties"
    6. set video output to "Other" and copy/paste this line: ffmpegcolorspace ! vaapiconvert ! vaapisink fullscreen=true synchronous=true
    7. set video input to "Other" and copy/paste this line: v4l2src device="/dev/video0" ! video/x-raw-yuv,width=352,height=288,framerate=30/1

    This steps made me able to use my webcam with cheese, but not in Skype.
