    Re: Help backing up files

    I'd have to also recommend DirSyncPro. It's pretty easy to setup but still gives you enough power to get a little technical with the way you backup.

    The only issue I've seen is the version of Java...

    I also had similar problem. Run Google Earth, search for something, automatically starts zooming in, it crashes (but not full freeze, just GE disappears).

  4. [SOLVED] Re: Mailman "Relay access denied" since upgrade from 10.04 to 12.04

    Yes, thanks too pot_roast. I also saw this subtle bug since moving to 12.04. Commenting out those lines worked fine. Who uses IPv6 on small networks anyhow?!? :-)

  6. [SOLVED] Re: Disk encryption with separate home drive

    Enabling encryption ecrypts the whole target drive (except /boot) so the SSD will be encrypted, but not the HDD.

    [xubuntu] Re: remove software-center

    As it mentions in Synaptic for xubuntu-desktop:

    It is safe to remove this package if some of the desktop system packages are
    not desired.

    It's safe - remove it! :-)
  9. [xubuntu] Re: upgrade to 12.04 have to wait 3 minutes after login

    At the login screen, press ctrl-alt-f3 to activate a console login and try logging in that way. Do you still get a delay? if not, then you can activate "top" in that console to monitor the cpu (just...
