    Ah- that explains it! I thought you were commenting on one of the previous bugs! I apologize - and I hope that my feeble attempt at humor didn't come across the wrong way. I would not have guessed that english was your second, third or fourth language - you write quite well.

    Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    Issue: Thinkfinger does not appear to work in Xorg. Swiping your finger and then pressing enter does the trick. This problem does not appear in the CLI environment (although I did not try to reproduce).

    Launchpad ticket: Click here.

    Workaround: Add the PPA in post #21(-ish) of the launchpad ticket. Update, upgrade and restart X.

    Bug: Losing keyboard and mouse control when changing screen brightness with fn + arrow under intrepid

    This problem has affected my Dell Latitude D600 laptop. If the Fn+Brightness controls are used to adjust screen brightness, the keyboard becomes completely unresponsive and it is not possible to type anywhere. Also, the mouse continues to move normally, but right click is not possible, and left click behaves strangely, becoming unable to open menus. The Applications, Places, System menu for example becomes "depressed" (highlighted blue), but the menu does not appear. CPU usage will rise while this problem is present, and there are several other weird side-effects.

    Workaround: Use Ctrl+Alt+F1 to switch to a terminal, then Ctrl+Alt+F7 to switch back to X. All problems will then disappear. Avoid using the function keys to control display brightness.

    Bluetooth PAN tool for connecting to phone

    Problem: Intrepid doesn't have the PAND tool that I used in Hardy to connect to the internet via bluetooth on my Windows Mobile phone.

    Solution:

    1. Use synaptic package manager to get the following package; bluez-compat

    2. Edit the file /etc/default/bluetooth and add the following lines:

    Code:
    PAND_ENABLED=1
    PAND_OPTIONS="--role=PANU"

    3. Edit the file /etc/network/interfaces and add the line
    Code:
    iface bnep0 inet dhcp
    4. Create the following file: /etc/bluetooth/panup

    Add this;
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    sudo pand --connect 00:17:E8:2F:8C:42 -n
    sleep 1
    sudo ifup bnep0

    replace with your phone address


    5. Create the following file: /etc/bluetooth/pandown

    Add this;

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    sudo ifdown bnep0
    sudo pand -K


    6. Make panup and pandown executable

    7. Pair the phone, start the connection and sharing software on your phone.

    8. run the script /etc/bluetooth/panup to start and you should acquire DNS address

    9. run the script /etc/bluetooth/pandown to terminate


    It boggles the mind that you have to do all that crap on a modern OS where the GUI should handle it.

    This procedure is modified from an older one in this thread:

    Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    Shutdown hangs at the ALSA modules:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...light=shutdown

    Basically you have to shut down networking before the ALSA stuff is shut down. "Workaround" originally from:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/274995

    open terminal

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/init.d/alsa-utils
    scroll down to where you see stop

    insert this line at the top (right after the stop) :
    Code:
    ifconfig eth0 down
    or if you use wireless/both at times, insert this instead/in addition:
    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 down

    Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    CD/DVD drive closes immediately after ejecting.

    Official bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ev/+bug/283316.

    Workaround: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ev/+bug/283316.

    (Note that the workaround discussed in the bug is now available through intrepid-proposed. In order to get the update [the package affected is udev, the new version being 124-9], I had to temporarily change from the German mirror to the US repos.)

    Re: Known Intrepid Ibex bugs and workarounds

    Bug: After upgrading from Hardy, clicking on folders in the "Places" menu opens up the wrong application (for example, VLC, Totem, Rhythmbox, etc. instead of Nautilus).

    Launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...us/+bug/260492.

    Workaround: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...us/+bug/260492.

    (Basically, the solution is simply to right click on a folder in nautilus > open with app > file manager. Afterwards, "places" folders should open normally again.)
