    Unless you want to specifically draw pixel by pixel (which I think is of limited use), I find Inkscape a lot easier to use for an equivalent task then paint and non-destructive editing makes it far...

    Are you seriously angry about something this specific? There are far greater inequalities out there - people who've received bad teachers, people who've been sent to a bad school, people who've...

    [xubuntu] Re: speed up epiphany

    It depends on which version of XUbuntu you're using. Personally, I'd give Firefox 3.1 beta 2 and midori a go - depending on your hardware, one or both of those could be noticeably faster (one uses a...

    Have you tried just running azureus with gksudo? It's not massively advisable as a general practice but shouldn't be harmful in that situation, at least no more so than chmodding the azureus install...

    The standard way to make a GVFS mount is to use the "Connect to Server" entry on the places menu. These can be made permanent by checking "Add Bookmark". Mounts are then accessible via the terminal...

    [ubuntu] Re: don't have root privilege

    Ubuntu uses the 'sudo' authentication system rather than having a root account. Normally, you would use "sudo xx" where xx is a command which requires root privileges. Alternatively, you can use...

    [ubuntu] Re: Dell A940 Printing Probem

    I'd recommend a bit of googling - a cursory search suggests the Z55 driver should work, but Ubuntu seems to lack this too - perhaps try the Z53. Otherwise, I'd recommend trying Lexmark printer...

    Try using the drivers for the Lexmark X5150 - the A940 is based very closely on that printer so drivers should be the same.

    Re: Tango Generator: An icon compilation script

    Unfortunately the growing population of the generator has sucked up a fair bit of bandwidth and has overrun a 10GB quota. It should be up again within a month.
