    [SOLVED] Re: Webcam brightness increase?

    Thanks for the tip, nerdy_kid. My own webcam, rather than capturing too dark, would begin by working perfectly and then increase in brightness over time, finally becoming a bleached-out sea of...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Keyboard shortcut for moving a window to a specific display

    I don't have any ideas as to how to make this work again, but I'm wondering if the reason it isn't working is the same reason my devilspie configuration (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Devilspie)...

    Whoops! Talk about late to the party :/ Note to self, check thread before posting.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 11.10 Notify-OSD no longer respects ~/.notify-osd?

    Hi all. Just letting you know that Leolik has now released an Oneiric version of his patched notify-osd, so time to unlock your apts, folks!
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 11.10 Notify-OSD no longer respects ~/.notify-osd?

    As a follow-up, I found that the aptitude hold command didn't stop my package manager upgrading notify-osd to the newer locked-down version, so I fixed this in synaptic instead. So, ...

  6. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 11.10 Notify-OSD no longer respects ~/.notify-osd?

    Here's a quick hack to use the Natty version (at least until an Oneiric version is released). It seems to work as per usual.

    The second-to-last line reinstalls apps that were removed...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 11.10 Notify-OSD no longer respects ~/.notify-osd?

    Hi Kira

    I think the ~/.notify-osd config file is for a patched version of notify-osd which at the time of writing isn't yet available for Oneiric. As far as I know the default version of...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Keyboard shortcut for moving a window to a specific display

    Also realised that this script works for horizontal layouts, but if your monitors are place vertically next to each other, you'll need to edit the script so it checks for [ $cury -ge $offy ]. I'm...

  10. [ubuntu] Keyboard shortcut for moving a window to a specific display

    I noticed that while Compiz has every keyboard shortcut imaginable for moving windows between desktops, there's no shortcut for moving a window to a specific display when using dual monitors. I...

    Re: Record your desktop with recordmydesktop ;)

    I found that I had audio sync problems (in both compiz and metacity) when I used -delay in recordmydesktop. I removed the -delay option, and audio synced fine when tested in both composite managers....

    This is an old post, I know, but I thought I'd add my own thoughts on the matter. I was also having the 256 error occur when running mythfilldatabase. I checked the settings on the 'videosource'...

    [gnome] Re: Seeking a good PDF viewer for Gnome

    You're right. I'd be using evince if I didn't need the features.

    I work in the creative field, so exporting from pdfs is a must, and although I can use gimp, imagemagick, or sometimes inkscape or...

    I just found out that there's a KDE4 version of the fantastic kpdf app. I used to use this as it was feature-rich and reasonably fast (at least evince speed), as well as highly accurate (unlike xpdf...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Using sed to retrieve last played position of mp3 file in mplayer

    Actually, you're right. I tried the code I posted again, and it worked, returning the 5. I'm not sure why that didn't work, but it was definitely returning a 0 at the time. Ho hum.

    Also, I've...
