  2. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 8.10 + LTSP + Skype = Microphone is not Working on Client

    Have you gone to a TTY (CTRL+ALT+F1), logged in and run 'aslamixer' ? There are more fine-grained volume controls for mic, etc. there..usually that's the fix for me.

    Hmm, according to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/339891 (looks like the master bug for this issue), if WPA *is* the issue (did you try temporarily turning WPA off?), you can...
  7. Re: Ubuntu Netbook Remix can't connect to hidden wireless network

    Hmm. As a troubleshooting step, why not turn on SSID broadcast temporarily.. what kind of encryption are you using? (not that it should matter, Jaunty can pretty much do it all)

    Since it can see...

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Differences in Nautilus 2.22.2 permissions tab

    Nice. I definitely like the previous Permissions tab (rwx style). IMHO all the new one does is (badly) hide the concepts behind rwx, which if you take 5 minutes to learn about it, the knowledge is...

    Re: HOWTO: Set up VNC server with resumable sessions

    I'm not sure where the settings are, but with most/all things Linux, GUI tools are merely front-ends for back-end configuration files. Not sure if the the XDMCP stuff is stored in GCONF or in...
