    Re: Unity MEGA Thread

    Agreed. My suggestion was for something like an FAQ (together with a strong recommendation for Unity as a starting point); along with mentioning other DEs the FAQ could address how to do certain...

    On the 'bug' report about community engagement on Launchpad I suggested making information about other desktop environment choices more prominent on the Ubuntu main page as a way of mitigating this...

    Re: Unity MEGA Thread

    Because after playing with Gnome Shell for awhile on a computer with Intel graphics, I decided I like Unity better, and fglrx works just fine with unity! ;-)

    Re: Unity MEGA Thread

    Then add a bottom panel. It's easy enough to do. I've done it myself to see if it would work, it did, and now I've removed it because it adds nothing for me. For example, since Firefox, and every...

    The issue is that Gnome Shell does not work properly with the fglrx proprietary driver for ATI/AMD cards. Things work fine with the open source driver, which is great unless you actually want to use...
  6. [xubuntu] Re: webcam : no more colors after upgrade to 11.10

    This was reported on Launchpad as Bug #838739, and a fix was released today.
    The ppa you've given will work as well, but the problem can also be solved by adding the ubuntu-proposed repository....

    No worries. It'd be nice if they'd link to this ppa on the launchpad site though! The customization options are starting to show some promise. I've got my old weather and cpu monitor applets back in...

    Cool, thanks. For some reason that's not the ppa linked to on the project page in Launchpad that VinDSL provided (although he did give this ppa).

    Re: Unity MEGA Thread

    Yeah, that's the ppa I tried. Right now they've only packaged it for Natty and earlier, so I'd have to use either Natty unstable or the Oneiric stable version. Anyway, it's not a big deal, since I'm...

    Re: Unity MEGA Thread

    Currently they are showing no packaging for 11.10 or 12.04, so presumably you're compiling yourself? Are the features in the 0.6 branch significant enough that one would want to compile this version...

    Re: Unity MEGA Thread

    Sorry, but how does my previous suggestion of *toggle backlight* not give you obvious feedback regarding what programs are running? I can assure you that at no time am I in any doubt on my machines.

    I installed it awhile back (it was a dependency of some other program I'd installed) but I've never run it on this install. Maybe I should log into it once to see if that gets it going.

    You can install and run gnome-panel on top of Unity. That gives you the panels from the gnome-session-fallback interface. You are supposed to be able to modify the panels with Alt+right click but...
  16. [xubuntu] Re: webcam : no more colors after upgrade to 11.10

    There's an open bug on the problem: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cheese/+bug/838739
    Reverting to the old kernel seems like a bit of an extreme step; I'm hoping this will get fixed.

    Another option for switching tasks in Unity with the mouse is to modify the scale plugin. By default, Super+W initiates the scale plugin for all windows (on all workspaces) and Shift+Alt+Up initiates...

    Yeah, but the dash only looks right when you maximise it. It's nice that the option to move the launcher exists, but the implementation at the bottom is still not quite there.

    Re: Ubuntu Unity DISASTER

    Ahh, I thought it was Super-D, and then noticed that no longer worked. There was a decent user's guide for 11.04 by Jorge Castro. Has someone put together something similar for 11.10?
