  1. [ubuntu] Missing resolution options for ATI Radeon 9600

    I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a friend's computer, and the graphics drivers don't seem to be quite correct. The highest resolution available in Monitor Preferences is 1360x768; however, he has a...
  2. [ubuntu] wake on keyboard (Dell Inspiron E1505 [aka Inspiron 6400])

    I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 on my laptop, which has a faulty lid switch. This means it will wake from sleep (S3) randomly while in my bag. This is obviously a bad thing, and the only real solution I...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Alsa, PulseAudio Produces clicking sound

    I'm suddenly experiencing the same problem (apparently). To clarify: in Ubuntu 8.10, when I try to play back audio (e.g., from Amarok) I get instead only a clicking noise. When I go to Preferences...

    [ubuntu] Re: Wake from suspend unexpectedly

    I followed the instructions, with VirtualBox 2.1.4, but when I boot the virtual machine I get a BSOD with error STOP: 0x0000007B. Booting in Safe Mode reveals that the last driver it loads...

    [ubuntu] Re: dm-crypt and LUKS on existing system

    I found the tutorial I mentioned, and it has a 'luksConvert' script. However, since the instructions are for Ubuntu 7.04, I'm a little leery of just blindly trusting them for 8.10 as well.

    [ubuntu] dm-crypt and LUKS on existing system

    [ubuntu] Dim display when idle

    I'd like to change the timeout for the "dim display when idle" setting in the power management preferences. Currently it dims my screen if I don't do anything for 30 seconds; where can I change it...
  11. [ubuntu] Bug (?) in "Hide all windows and focus desktop"

    I recently started using Ubuntu (8.10), and I decided to map a few keyboard shortcuts to the same keys as in Windows, since those are what I'm used to. In particular, there are several shortcuts...

    [ubuntu] Re: Synaptics touchpad in 8.04 is clunky

    I guess the fact that it's been three days with no response means no one has any suggestions... Perhaps most people don't have a problem with the current touchpad drivers? One last try: does anyone...

    I've been playing with Ubuntu server edition from the command line for a while now on an old machine, and decided to set up my primary machine as a dual-boot (XP and 8.04). I like quite a few things...
