    [ubuntu] Re: Gnome 3 (Gnome-Shell) window raise behaviour

    Thanks for posting about the location of the option, I couldn't find it myself.

    Assuming the "buggy behaviour" is also inherited from metacity, it mainly consists of it trying to hide new windows...

    [SOLVED] Re: Net manager and keyring problem.

    If the "all users" option didn't get mentioned before it's probably because it didn't appear until well after this thread was started. And didn't work until even more recently :-P.

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrading from a custom DVD

    I'd better let people know, simply dropping the packages into /var/cache/apt/archives does work. I used apt-get dist-upgrade -s to get a list of package names. The upgrader still needed to download a...

    [ubuntu] Upgrading from a custom DVD

    I installed Ubuntu on both my sisters' PCs, and I'd like to upgrade them to Jaunty. The trouble is, they both have slow and/or download-limited Internet connections. The last time I upgraded one of...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Accounts invalid after upgrading from 7.10 to 8.04

    The trouble is you can't get to the terminal if you can't log in!

    I've been round now and it turned out things had got a bit confused because the system's a bit cobbled together with 2 HDs, both...
  6. [ubuntu] Accounts invalid after upgrading from 7.10 to 8.04

    I started an upgrade on my sister's PC last night but I couldn't stay long enough to wait for it to complete and I had to leave it running.

    [all variants] ndiswrapper and wpa_supplicant

    I just installed Intrepid on my sister's PC which has a TI wireless card. The acx driver doesn't support WPA so I installed ndiswrapper, but wpa_supplicant doesn't seem to be cooperating with it very...

  9. [all variants] Searching for bugs by package in launchpad.net

    [ubuntu] HP 530 laptop often freezes at boot

    My laptop often freezes up early in the boot sequence. It's an HP 530 Centrino Duo. I compile my own kernels, but I used the same options with Debian until a couple of weeks ago and didn't have so...
  11. Re: Howto: Get Network Manager to stop asking you for your keyring password (pam_keyr

    It sounds like you previously tried the other method of altering /etc/pam.d/gdm-autologin and you haven't reversed that change. Make sure that file doesn't contain the extra lines described further...
  12. Re: Howto: Get Network Manager to stop asking you for your keyring password (pam_keyr

    I described how to use a script to avoid a password prompt with auto-login in post #68. Using that method you should not alter /etc/pam.d/gdm-autologin. You're unlocking the gnome keyring, not just...
  13. Re: Howto: Get Network Manager to stop asking you for your keyring password (pam_keyr

    The first way works for me with Feisty. It could be that your script runs before gnome-keyring-daemon. ISTR getting a vague error like that when I was using ROX-Session and needed to start the...
  14. Re: Howto: Get Network Manager to stop asking you for your keyring password (pam_keyr

    Several people have asked how to get this to work with autologin. Making the same change to /etc/pam.d/gdm-autologin as to /etc/pam.d/gdm described at the start of the thread sort of works, but you...
