    Re: Repositories on Gusty Gibbon?

    I too have the same problem. I've recently upgrade from 7.04 to 7.10 - without a hitch, by the way - and can't seem to install compizconfig-settings-manage although I have the proper repos listed. So...

    Re: The Ubuntu Forums New Look.

    I like the new look. Logging on threw me off for a minute. I saw my 'name' and the space next to it, but with the 'Go' button also there, I thought it might be some sort to search feature. Maybe a...

    Re: Ubuntu's Problems

    Teapot, I couldn't disagree with you more. As a Linux user since '99, Ubuntu has been a revelation to me. A saviour. Nay, a God! of the distros.

    I'm the kind of person that seems to hit a wall no...

    Re: Complement Another Distro

    Re: Evangelism...

    The fact that multimedia does not work right out of the box is the major reason people new to linux tend to shy away from it. More often than not, a newbie needs someone to look over their sholder...

    Re: Wow

    My sentiments exactly. After years of more configuring then using Linux I came across Ubuntu. What a joy! A distro that just works. Hard core geeks will always look down their noses at distros that...
  11. Poll: Re: Why do you like Gnome more than KDE..

    I feel the same way. I started out with KDE. After a couple of distros, I gave Gnome a try. I've been a Gnome man ever since. Clean, simple, elegant, it works. What else can a man want?

    Re: Deleting Icons

    That did it! Thanks. I don't know if I'll keep this distro on my test box. It is an interesting one. Something to play with. Funny how I equate it with Ubuntu. Second release and not bad at all.

    Re: Galeon Browser...

    I have to agree; compared to Galeon, Firefox does seem sluggest. I never though I'd say that. Never in a million years. I don't think I'll give up on Firefox but is sure is nice to have Galeon on...
