  1. Re: I dont have plugin unity in compizconfig setting manager

    Hi guys, thanks for the prompt responses. My problem has actually turned out to be minor: I must have magically reset the desktop properties and disabled moving and resizing windows, and managed to...
  2. Re: I dont have plugin unity in compizconfig setting manager

    And which version are you guys talking about? I'm in the process of using these instructions after having messed something up with compiz in 12.04, and I'm told that apt-get is "unable to locate...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: 13.10, Lenovo T520 (NVIDIA NVS 4200M) video driver unrecognized

    Hi, just letting the future generations of readers know that when after the Nth time of resorting to LiveCD, I wasn't able to recover from the mess I'd created, I decided to burn 12.04 and restart...
  4. [ubuntu] 13.10, Lenovo T520 (NVIDIA NVS 4200M) video driver unrecognized

    Hi all, I'm close to giving up after two days of research, trials, purges and re-installations. I thought that upgrading from Natty, long overdue, would be a snap. I was so wrong. My brain is...

    [kubuntu] Re: Clock keeps resetting to UTC time

    What I did to get out of this (and so far, it's working) was the following. (Let me stress: there is no advanced know-how in what I did, just guessing and wishful thinking, so some of these steps may...

    [kubuntu] Re: Clock keeps resetting to UTC time

    Hi, I experience the same problem.

    It may be related to something (the control module?) resetting /etc/localtime to point to, e.g. ../posix/Europe/Berlin

    (while it should be pointing to...

    Re: HowTo: NViDIA 185.18 Drivers in Ubuntu

    Hi all, is there something I should be aware of when applying this in Natty?

    I've gone as far as trying to install the driver from the shell, but it complained about the lack of kernel sources. So...
  9. Re: [HOWTO] disable touchpad when external usb mouse is connected

    Thanks for your effort, raffamaiden.

    Indeed my dmesg showed halevt 0.1.5 segfaulting under maverick. For other newbies like myself let me add that in order to install the newer version (0.1.6.2),...
  10. Re: ubuntu 10.10 + win7, grub2, SFS partitions unbootable

    Hi again -- we're getting academic here ;-) , but let me point out a weakness in what you said:



    winXP and Vista are irrelevant for this argument -- they are the past, while you want to say...
  11. Re: ubuntu 10.10 + win7, grub2, SFS partitions unbootable

    I haven't called that a bug. I have called HP's leaving the average user no say as to the partition structure (by saturating all 4 primaries) arrogance. But this merely provides a setting for what I...
  12. Re: ubuntu 10.10 + win7, grub2, SFS partitions unbootable

    Hi again. I believe this story won't have a happy ending but the conclusion may turn out to be somewhat important nevertheless: apart from the Ubuntu-external issue of HP's arrogance in setting up a...
  13. Re: ubuntu 10.10 + win7, grub2, SFS partitions unbootable

    Bludgard, both syntaxes work, '.exe' or not, CamelCase or lowercase.
  14. Re: ubuntu 10.10 + win7, grub2, SFS partitions unbootable

    Thanks, oldfred. I burnt the newest version -- it was one of the things I did before I posted here, but the conversion looked like the last resort (and maybe even the wrong way out), so I decided to...
  15. Re: ubuntu 10.10 + win7, grub2, SFS partitions unbootable

    In my case, that was out of the question -- the laptop came set up like this from the manufacturer, and it wasn't a private purchase, so I had no contact with the source. Sigh, it is so arrogant of...
  16. Re: ubuntu 10.10 + win7, grub2, SFS partitions unbootable

    Sigh, I have tried to make some sense of these messages and decided that it might be better to post the full log of a single run through the "analyse" option of testdisk. The directory listings...
  17. Re: ubuntu 10.10 + win7, grub2, SFS partitions unbootable

    Hi oldfred, thanks for the reply and apologies for coming back late, I'm babysitting :-)



    I probably wasn't clear enough: I did use linux tools to create the partitions for linux. But it...
  18. ubuntu 10.10 + win7, grub2, SFS partitions unbootable

    Hi All, I tried to search and read as much as my brain could hold, and it might be that I'm reporting a new variety of the "windows won't boot anymore" problem. I'm not a geek, just an average...
