    Same audio problem on my i3. Pulse isn't picking up all your available audio outputs. Check in the sound settings GUI... probably says analog output rather than HDMI.

    Fix:
    1) Open terminal and...

    Re: What is the linux killer app??

    I agree there's really not a killer app, because if there was it would be open source and soon ported to Windows (Amarok has taken so long due to the license issues with Qt3).

    But there are killer...

    Re: MS Access Alternative?

    That's what I was afraid of. :( I'm playing with both Base and Kexi now, and neither really measures up to Access for speed or ease of use. Still to early to say whether they're better or worse...

    Re: MS Access Alternative?

    Wow, I appreciate all the feedback. I think I should clarify some things though.

    I'm not too concerned about importing old data or structure. I figure I can find a way to get data from Access...

    MS Access Alternative?

    Looking for a little constructive input here. :) At work, I've been tasked with creating a new database-driven application for managing order data. The old database was done in Microsoft Access,...
  7. Re: Why do you use Ubuntu and not other distros?

    I use Ubuntu because it requires the least tinkering to get new things working. That's due to the combination of great repositories, checkinstall, and tons of users posting packages and howtos all...
  8. Poll: Re: Which Games Console you have? And tell your experience

    I've got a Wii. Most of my friends have Xbox 360s. About once every couple of months an absurdly awesome game comes out for the 360 and I wish I had one to play it on. Then I remember that I only...

    Re: Why Ubuntu?

    I use Ubuntu for the out-of-the-box hardware support and detection and the fairly up to date apt repositories. Debian is nice for similar reasons, but I don't like having to worry about conflicting...

    Re: Fender Strats

    I've got a Strat and I'm not really impressed with it. One of my old roommates had some kind of Ibanez guitar that sounded amazing though... kind of a deep but sharp sound.

  11. Re: Anyone thinking of converting to KDE once 4 is released?

    This is exactly how I feel too. I like KDE alot better than Gnome, but Kubuntu has the absolute worst KDE I've ever used. It's full of bugs that don't seem to exist anywhere else, many of which...
  12. Re: Kubuntu users, why Kubuntu instead of other distros?

    Because it's more up to date than Debian and easier to configure than Arch. And the rest of the decent KDE distros I've found have given me more package management trouble.

    I use Gnumeric for spreadsheets and either LyX or Abiword for documents. If I ever use anything else, it's just to covert a Microsoft file to something usable, and for that OpenOffice is really the...
