    Yeah, you can translate to German if you'd like. Thanks for asking. But please put a link here to the site when you're done with the translation. I'd love to know that resource is available.

    Hello again,

    I regret to say, that I lack of a webhoster myself, Aysiu...
    Would yours allow for an embedded translated webpage of similar appearance of your own?

    I'm probably not going to be hosting any translations on Psychocats. There may be others willing to host it, though.

    Well, if you maybe know someone, let me know
    I could ask at the german ubuntu forum, but I don't think they'd do it by themselves...

    Re: Psychocats Tutorials Updates

    I wanted to know how to get from a well-worn Kubuntu setup to a nice clean Ubuntu setup and found the answer at http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/puregnome - thanks!

    However, when I booted into Kubuntu, even though I selected a console login, when it came to remove kdm, the kubuntu splash appeared and then reverted to a blank screen. I couldn't get back to the console view. I ended up doing Alt-PrtSc-SUB to restart.

    Then I booted with an Ubuntu Live CD, opened a console window, mounted the hard disk, did chroot and carried on. It would have been better to do that in the first place - might be worth pointing out on your howto?

    No, not really. This is the first I've ever heard of that problem occurring.

    Thanks for the suggestion, though. And I'm glad you got it sorted.

    Re: Psychocats Tutorials Updates

    I have an update to give on this tutorial:

    http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome

    When attempting this with my Intrepid install (I'm preparing to downgrade back to Hardy) I couldn't complete this command:

    $find . -depth -print0 | cpio –null –sparse -pvd /mnt/newhome/

    even when starting it as "sudo" - I always got permission errors.

    My solution, which I suggest be added to the tutorial, is to start the command line process by becoming su, which requires creating a password for su while booted into the live CD. The first command after re-partitioning should therefore be:

    $sudo passwd root

    then enter a short password like "god"

    $su
    password: god

    Now every command is done as super user by default, and the large copy command will work. This shortens all of the mounting and mkdir commands as well because "sudo" is assumed.

    Re: Psychocats Tutorials Updates

    Hey Hooya,
    I think that command is an old way of doing things. I've written my own tutorial, and linked to the other tutorials that I worked off of. You can see my work here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Pa...ng/Home/Moving

    Secondly Hooya, there is no need to set the root password. You can just run: sudo su. Also, purposely setting the root password to a very weak password seems like a bad idea.

    Take care,
    Dan

    There is a quicker way to uninstall Ubuntufox and replace it with the Mozilla one: uninstall the Ubufox extension.

    A comment was made, that the instructions to get back to a pure Gnome from KDE are outdated. If you're not already aware of this, you can find the conversation here:
