    For anyone really twitchy for something to test, here's beta2 for Ubuntu-MATE-Remix
  3. [gnome] Re: My Trusty Flashback w/Metacity tweaks and challenges

    I finally completed a 12.04 Classic (with MATE 16 layered in) to 14.04 with MATE 18. The 1st part of the upgrade (after undoing some app-related PPAs) required working in Unity. When I finally got...

    [gnome] Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions (Lubuntu problem)

    Had the bright (?) idea of using Flashback as my desktop in a Lubuntu Trusty base. Appeared to have installed OK, but choosing Flashback No Effects at logon, ended up with a desktop with solid empty...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't install GParted

    Saucy's gparted is 0.16.1, so it handles F2FS if that's something anyone wants to play with.

    [ubuntu] Re: raring released

    Yes. You have to change your file name to match the release file one, and then run the torrent. It will complete the download without downloading anything, discover it has 100% of the right file, and...

    [ubuntu] Re: raring released

    As of right now, there are no Mar24 dailies for ubuntu-gnome and xubuntu. So I'm reluctant to jump the gun.

    Re: gksu on live cd But not installed

    "Just use vim" is really arrogant advice (even to people that know it). And there's no excuse for the 64-bit framework working differently from the 32-bit one.

    Re: We're nearly there and i'm impressed!

    Yes, and older laptops as well. My ASUS eeePC900 with Celeron and my dual-core HP Pavilion are much zippier than with 12.04. (They both have 2GB RAM.)

    If you don't fancy Unity, drop in Mate1.6.

    [ubuntu] Re: Just installed 13.04 on my old netbook.

    Funny coincidence, I just did the same with an SDHC card on my ASUS900, which was bumped up to 2GB back when I bought it. Since I'm one of the people who regards Unity as improved from unusable to...

    To give Skype 4.1 its turn at bat, see

    Skype 4.0 is the one used before RR. I suspect that the Canonical repos aren't consistent with 4.1 yet....

    Installing Skype in Raring final beta

    Another thread contains muttering about who's to blame for the fact that Skype doesn't install.

    If you want to test Skype, rather than point fingers, download the 32 or 64 bit version of libxss1...
  14. Re: Compiz uses a lot of CPU when there is an unresponsive window

    This was pretty dire when there's a single core (my Celeron 900 netbook). The past couple of days' updates seem to have fixed it.

    Re: Who wants to test MIR?

    Am having a relapse of masochistic tendencies. Will give things a try even though my installed systems still run LTS fallback mode. Each machine has different video system and not all have 3D.

    I have a few boxes like that. But things have been getting better with later versions.

    Don't sweat the window of squares. It's supposed to be a warning message of some sort. You can either ignore them, or click the lower right rectangle. In English language installs, those 2 squares...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: dlink DWA-125 USB wireless adaptor help needed

    Looks like the kernel crowd finally got this one integrated. With a 3.2.6 kernel and a DWA-125A2, all I had to do was include rt2x00usb, rt2800usb, rt2x00lib, and rt2800lib in /etc/modules, and after...
  20. [ubuntu] RESOLVED: Gnote reinstall, how to import backed up notes?

    Looks like a Tomboy conversion leaves the Gnote data where the .tomboy directory is.

    Copy the backup ~/.gnote directory to ~/.local/share/gnote and you're good to go.

  22. [SOLVED] Re: I'm a member of the right group yet file is still read-only

    Maybe existing files in /var/log/mas are still owned by 1002? Try chown'ing them to 1003 while su'd to root. File chown'ing is often required when changing uid/gid.
