    [kubuntu] Re: 13.04 plasma-desktop crashing

    Man, that's frustrating. I wonder if I should try installing Qt 4.8.5 on my own? Or if I should complain to the Kubuntu devs?
    I don't want to risk breaking anything further...

    By "plug-in" you mean it's on a card? It's an ATI Radeon.

    [kubuntu] 13.04 plasma-desktop crashing

    I'm running Kubuntu 13.04. I've been having a lot of problems with plasma-desktop crashing, especially on startup. It hasn't been catastrophic so far, because it comes right back up and doesn't...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Disable DHCP on router; now I can't connect to it

    Okay, I found out that my router hadn't been factory reset. I thought it was strange that the SSID hadn't been reset to NETGEAR. Apparently, I needed a paperclip instead of a safety pin...or maybe I...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Disable DHCP on router; now I can't connect to it

    No, that doesn't work, either.

    The back of the router has 4 black ports (numbered 1 through 4) and a yellow port, separated from those 4. According to a diagram I found on the web, the plug from...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Disable DHCP on router; now I can't connect to it

    No dice. I couldn't find a paperclip, so I tried the flat end of a needle this time. I could clearly feel the button depress, and the lights did flash and reset (as if I had just plugged it in). I...
  7. [SOLVED] Disable DHCP on router; now I can't connect to it

    While attempting to get my wireless router working (a Netgear WPN824 v3), I managed to turn the DHCP off. As a result, I now can't connect to 192.168.1.1 to change settings. After some research, I...

    Re: Kickstart a CCG game for linux

    I'm only interested in the physical version, and that's only available at the $150 level. I wish them well, though...sounds like a cool game.

    Re: ANN: mednafen frontend / launcher

    This program recently quit working for me, after an upgrade. Maybe something in a newer version of Python broke it? Here are the errors I'm getting from the command line:

  10. [kubuntu] Headphones mute at medium- to high volume

    I just got through re-formatting my HD and re-installing 11.10. My system's about a year old, and it had a couple of annoying issues and some cruft had been building up, so I hoped that this would...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: No sound at all after plugged-in headphones

    Yep, me too. I'm not sure if mine is exactly the same problem: plugging in my headphones causes the sound to mute. I can un-mute it from the control panel, but it also cuts out again if the volume is...
  12. Re: Diaspora to hit beta sometime within next 30 days.

    Perhaps not, and I wouldn't try to make that main selling point for those people. However, it can be a good way to broach the topic to people who don't know what FOSS is. Also, some people who don't...
  13. Re: Diaspora to hit beta sometime within next 30 days.

    I've been donating $3 a month. That's about the price of a cup of coffee. (Well, fancy coffee.)
  14. Re: Diaspora to hit beta sometime within next 30 days.

    But G+ is closed-source, and a walled garden, like Facebook, Myspace, Friendster, etc. Diaspora is fundamentally different, because of its decentralized pod model and free/open source software. This...

    [ubuntu] Re: Lucid Upgrade --- Can't Find WiFi

    Okay, it seems to be fixed now. I had to install wicd. I guess Network Manager had been broken this whole time.

    [ubuntu] Lucid Upgrade --- Can't Find WiFi

    I upgraded from Karmic, hoping that would fix my Wireless problems. Unfortunately, now I've lost the Network Manager. Could somebody show me a step-by-step guide on how to set up wireless in Ubuntu?...

    [ubuntu] Re: Finding MBR

    I guess what I'm asking is where GRUB lives. That's the root set in /boot/grub/menu.lst, right?

    I have 3 drives, so I'm going to put a VFAT filesystem on one, install Windows on another, and...

    [ubuntu] Finding MBR

    I'm getting ready to go dual-boot again, but I want to find out which drive has my MBR on it, so I don't accidentally overwrite it before I'm ready.
    How do I find out which drive it lives on?

    I'm...

    It seems to be logging in fine, if I use the alias "sauron" instead.

    OK, this seems to be getting somewhere.

    Yes.
  25. Poll: Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    I tried it both ways, same error.
    I also tried logging in with just the IP address.

    How do I know if I have a firewall running?
