    [ubuntu] Bad link in daru4 drivers page

    System76 support: I was downloading the windows drivers from http://knowledge76.com/index.php/DarU4 for my new Daru UlatraThin, and the airplane mode driver is missing ".exe" in the link. I wasn't...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Optical drive & specs for Darter ultrathin?

    I feel silly. The drivers are on their knowledgebase. http://knowledge76.com/index.php/DarU4. The UEFI partition tables are new to me, but that can be figured out.
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Optical drive & specs for Darter ultrathin?

    Has anyone loaded windows 7 or 8.1 on this model, or know where I'd get any specific drivers? My Serval Performance (serp4) I got a few years back came with some windows cd's for drivers which were...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Optical drive & specs for Darter ultrathin?

    I think that'll be the way to go. I could take or leave blu-ray for my laptop, so I'll probably just save the money and get a dvd rw without one.
  5. [SOLVED] Optical drive & specs for Darter ultrathin?

    I just got my Darter UltraThin this week, my second System76 laptop. I didn't pay enough attention when I bought it, and didn't realize it didn't come with an optical drive. Does anyone have a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Audio & video sound stuttering in 12.04

    Thanks for the link. I tried it, and it caused what showed in gnome alsa mixer to be completely blank -- no buttons to click, no options dropdowns. Blank like that it shows I have "Realtek ID 768"....

    [ubuntu] Re: Audio & video sound stuttering in 12.04

    Yup. I'd tried disabling it based on some other posts, but all that did was make it so my laptop soft keys for sound didn't work -- sound was still stuttering.

    [SOLVED] Re: Location of programs in 12.04?

    Oh, I'm happy to give the new UI a try. If there wasn't going to be an easy way to launch programs without memorizing them, though, it was going to get tossed away fast. As is, if I can't get sound...

    [SOLVED] Re: Location of programs in 12.04?

    I was looking for how to search through the applications. Typing in semi-random names to look for apps isn't very user-friendly. It'd be nice if I could open up the right side bar options...

    Ah, that will help. It's pretty close to what I was looking for. Thanks.


    I'm pretty sure it was that. I think it was 11.10 where there was no going back to the old ubuntu setup. It wasn't a...

    [SOLVED] Location of programs in 12.04?

    I've upgraded my 11.04 System76 laptop to Ubuntu 12.04. How do I find programs with the Dash thing? It feels like I'm guessing to discover what programs are installed.

    [ubuntu] Jerky sound playback in Gnome

    I've found that sound playback is quite jerky in my Ubuntu 10.10 system. For example, when playing an mp3 with Amarok, I may get 15 seconds or so of good quality playback, but then the music will...

    [ubuntu] Re: Jerky sound playback

    Update: KDE does not have the sound issue Gnome has.

    [ubuntu] Re: Jerky sound playback

    Ok, I was finally able to try a 10.10 LiveCD. (What a rotten pain in the neck to set up mp3 playback, and it never quite worked, anyway.) I was able to try some ogg vorbis files, and they also...

    How do I verify that, or is Pulseaudio the only choice in 10.10?

    [ubuntu] Re: Jerky sound playback

    I had it for a while in 10.04, and have seen the behavior on and off through several releases. It's one of those things that "hurt when I did it" so I mostly have avoided sound, I think.

    [SOLVED] Re: Kernel removal options

    Complete removal worked just fine for me, by the way. A good chunk of the reason I like to have fewer kernels is I dual boot with XP, and XP is way down at the bottom of the list. Yes, I'm that...

    [SOLVED] Re: Time sync without hardware at GMT

    An excellent lead. In ubuntu the magic is in /etc/init/rcS. There is a variable called "UTC" that is set to yes by default, and I set it to no. When I rebooted into windows the time was the same. ...
