  1. [ubuntu] Re: Wubi Windows 7 - No Ubuntu option in Grub?

    That's the thing - I've reinstalled it once already, and no difference. :???: Thanks for the clarification about the virtual disk thing.

  2. [ubuntu] Wubi Windows 7 - No Ubuntu option in Grub?

    Hey all. I'm aware that Wubi doesn't install Grub. The normal Windows 7 bootloader comes up and I am given two options: Windows 7 or Ubuntu.

    So here's what happened:

    [ubuntu] Re: is 10.04 slower than earlier versions ?

    Clhsharky is right. Ubuntu has all the "extra fluff" that most users will want to use for everyday tasks. So of course as the versions go on Ubuntu will have to do whatever it can to compete in terms...
  4. [lubuntu] 10.04 restricted drivers not detected - how to install??

    Hey all.

    I've installed Lubuntu 10.04 on a computer with an nVidia GeForce 6200, 1.5 GB DDR2, and 3.0 GHz Pentium 4. Installed it on a 150 GB primary HD.

  5. [ubuntu] Re: "Out Of Range" refresh rate when logging in?!

    Bump - no progress...! Please help, someone?

    I'm considering a fresh install, maybe even Fedora Core 10... just want to get this working without an install seeing as I have my setup the way I want...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: "Out Of Range" refresh rate when logging in?!

    Will try, then edit this post to tell you how it goes.

    [EDIT]: Enabled viewing of hidden files (in Thunar) but to no avail - there's no "hidden" .nvidia files, folders, or anything in...
  7. [ubuntu] "Out Of Range" refresh rate when logging in?!

    Must've selected the wrong resolution or messed with my xorg.conf. I reset that using the command to return to default xorg.conf many times, uninstalled, reinstalled nvidia drivers. Thing is, every...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: [SOLVED]No sound for games Ubuntu 8.10

    I am glad that you made this post, I don't know yet if it works for me (this is a horrible problem with 8.10... Pulse was just implemented poorly from what I gather), but it's asoundconf-gtk, not...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Posted here before. Basically forced into using Ubuntu because I'm too lazy to fix Vista's corrupt MBR (well, I corrupted it... oops). Guess what? I don't mind! I really don't. For the time being...
  10. Re: Mac-style Menu Bar for GTK and Java/Swing applications!

    Yeah, I changed my GTK theme and I guess it's a theme component they're missing from the Mac4Lin theme cause I can't find that horizontal/vertical thing in their GTK files but I can in any other...
  11. Re: Mac-style Menu Bar for GTK and Java/Swing applications!

    Also there's this that I'm experiencing too:



    Mine's a white bar though. I think it has something to do with this being... idk, a background like the *tray icons* or something since those...
  12. Re: is talking about osx86 on these forums illegal.

    I was waiting for that, thank you! EULA is not law, and ironically, remember the commercial here? A mere 24 years later, don't you think this is exactly what they've turned into, such cranky whiners...

  14. Re: Mac-style Menu Bar for GTK and Java/Swing applications!

    Thanks man I had fooled around with recompiling but for some reason I tried 0.6 again and it works, which is sufficient for me right now haha. Even though something broke the User Switcher Applet -...
  15. Re: Mac-style Menu Bar for GTK and Java/Swing applications!

    Compile failed, so I installed the DEB [EDIT] (sorry, accidentally submitted) and it didn't work - I had it previously installed anyway, so I'm trying to uninstall and recompile as mentioned above......

    Wow. That is the most futuristic-looking and professional system I've ever seen. Amazing work. o__________o I can't hope to do that anytime soon, though - hahaha. XD Oh, well! >.< Still, awesome. I...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 8.10 Host, Windows XP Guest, No SOUND

    Well, kind of fixed. After a couple more restarts the VM sound worked just fine. Then I exited. Now VLC won't play DVDs, even though DVD support on my comp sucked and needed a lot of help to begin...
  18. [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.10 Host, Windows XP Guest, No SOUND

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I liked the post above about "Lindows" and "Vistux" - so true. I'm going to try out VirtualBox, as a matter of fact, because I need some Windows apps, and Linux has awesome features and I love the...

  21. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 8.10 & Vista SP1 Dual-Boot, Vista MBR Corrupt?!

    I see... thanks, I wasn't aware of that. So would just changing the jumpers work...? Cause the Windows recovery disk isn't seeing "C:\" as the Vista drive, which it sees as "D:\" and I don't quite...
  22. [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.10 & Vista SP1 Dual-Boot, Vista MBR Corrupt?!

    Hey all, been a while since I used the forums but after exhaustively looking everywhere I couldn't find quite an approximation to the issue I've been having.

    Summary:

    Well-said, indeed. I have nothing more to say. Hehe. I really liked your argument. :)

  24. Re: Linux-based Student OS and Teacher OS?

    I would certainly try to bypass the limitations. I'm sure you would, too.... Hehe. You are right in that they would not like the limitations, and that they would certainly try to do so. Say, 50 years...
  25. Linux-based Student OS and Teacher OS?

    Just an idea that came to mind.

    Some schools (few, though) have issued laptops and tablet PCs to their students. I was thinking, that, by the year 2027, would most schools be doing this? If so...
