    Re: Discourse, a new type of Forum

    Honestly, I don't think we need yet another Ubuntu forum. However, if the idea is to eventually transition to the new platform, I don't have a problem with that.

    [xubuntu] Re: thunar stuck maximized

    It's also possible you've put it in fullscreen mode, try pressing F11
    EDIT: And it's
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade not
    sudo apt-get upgrade
  3. [xubuntu] Re: Xubuntu 13.04 or Firefox 21.0 crash on certain websites

    I'm pretty sure the problem isn't qtwebkit's javascript engine, since Firefox uses the Gecko rendering engine which has its own javascript engine.

    Re: Cookie message?

    It's something that (If I recall correctly) the EU requires that sites that use cookies do to tell their users that the site uses cookies. Everything is fine.

    [ubuntu] Re: Lucid still updating ?

    And I'd expect to only see security updates for packages that a server might use, since the server version doesn't go EoL for another almost 2 years. For future LTS releases, this will be different...
  6. Re: Need a very lightweight Distro with a few requirements for a rookie (OLDD machine

    Lubuntu might work, though it might be a little slow. It'd probably help if you could bump the RAM up to 1 GB, though.
  7. Re: Stay with Ubuntu or change to other distro?

    If you want KDE, you can just open a terminal and run
    sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
  8. Re: Does ubuntu upgrade change the file system?

    You could still use ext3 on newer releases of Ubuntu. Heck, you can still use ext2, and there are some cases where it makes sense to use ext2 *cough*SSD*cough*

    [ubuntu] Re: constant errors file system

    There's probably multiple instances of you logged in (i.e. you in X and you in the terminal you typed "uptime" into).
  10. [ubuntu] Re: live cd boot for diskless intel based macbook?

    I don't actually have a Mac, I'm just repeating what I've heard elsewhere.

    Anyway, it seems that the special Mac disk image only exists for lubuntu, so the other flavors might have the Mac support...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: live cd boot for diskless intel based macbook?

    I think there are special liveCDs/liveDVDs for Macs because their EFI doesn't deal well with stuff made to run on a computer with a BIOS (or something)
    And you shouldn't need to reinstall a drive.

    [ubuntu] Re: Skype

    You should be able to open a terminal and run
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    The first part (before the &&) will update your list of packages and the second part (after the &&)...

    I don't see why a lubuntu installaton wouldn't be another option.

    Re: Long Term Support

    This doesn't exactly solve your question, but from the announcement of 11.10's EoL regarding 12.04 (the latest LTS release)

    Which implies that LTS releases get some, though probably not all,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Too many Apache2 processes

    If I had to guess, and perhaps someone else could confirm this, an apache2 process gets forked to deal with each request (and then, at least theoretically, dies when the request is finished)

    [ubuntu] Re: constant errors file system

    Have they even made 2 GB hard drives in the last 4 years? Heck, the company my mom used to work for was deploying computers with 4 GB hard drives in 1998.

    Re: Anyone use OpenIndiana?

    No offense to anyone, but I don't see any reason to use anything Solaris-based other than ZFS, and I think that's been ported to BSD and is in the process of getting ported to Linux via FUSE (if I...
  19. Re: Proposed: Chromium as Ubuntu's default browser

    I don't particularly like this proposed change. However, since it's dead simple to install firefox anyway, it's not that big of a deal. I mean, it's not like they're removing firefox from the repos.
