    [ubuntu] (Novice) Why Is WiFi So Finicky?

    I own a Dell XPS 1530 laptop that acts as my tutorial machine for Ubuntu. It dual boots Vista and Vista does little more on the box than run for 2 minutes before locking up so I have learned Ubuntu...

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgraded to 8.10 - touchpad HAL/xorg issue

    Guys, not having any luck with this. Followed the directions for enabling SHMConfig but after re-login (and reboot as well) it's clear it's not enabled. Plus I still have NO idea what filename I...

    [ubuntu] HAL and Touchpad variables???

    Okay, I have a Dell m1530 with a "Synaptics Touchpad" and learned a bit about xorg.conf to make changes to it in 8.04.

    I've now upgraded to 8.10 (so far so good). Now the touchpad is terribly...

    [ubuntu] Re: Dell XPS M1530: touchpad not Synaptics?

    I'm still waiting for someone to fix the intermittent scroll action on this pad. It's the one thing that drives me nuts with Ubuntu. Roughly half my boots have no ability to scroll using the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Why Won't These Work?

    That'd be fine except the way I use the laptop. I use it all over the house and often on my lap, etc., where there's no space for the mouse and I'd have to go find it each time.

    [ubuntu] Re: Why Won't These Work?

    The trackpad isn't an issue with the size of the scroll area. Several people are having this problem. In one session it's easy to scroll. In the next it's impossible to use the pad to scroll no...

    For 1. I did install all of that.

    For 3. No readme that helped. It's just an SH file that doesn't launch.

    [ubuntu] Re: VLC crashes when trying to play DVD

    Jake, can you fill in the steps you did to get it working? Same problem here without a solution so far and I'm too new to Ubuntu to know what you did to install dvd::rip and it's dependencies.

    [ubuntu] Why Won't These Work?

    I've migrated my Dell XPS 1530 laptop over to Ubuntu 8.04 and I really am coming around on it to the point of preferring to boot into it instead of Vista (which is also on the laptop).

    However, I...

    I was trying to avoid loading Samba on the PC side. Since it worked without it via Connect to Server I thought I might be able to get around this.

    [ubuntu] Re: Touchpad fix - Dell XPS M1530

    I'm at a point where it works about 40% of the time. It's so frustrating. Wish we could find out what hoses it the other 60% of the time.

    [ubuntu] No DVD Playback???

    I have an m1530 and I'll be darned if I can get ANY DVD to work with Ubuntu. The laptop dual boots Vista (which I hate) but the same DVD's work just fine under it. In Totem I get told that the disk...

    Same issue for me except that it WAS working for ONE session. My gripe was that the border was extremely tight against the edge of the pad but that I could live with. Now I'm back to gsynaptics...

    Thanks Jesper. I didn't even realize I had the option of a 64-bit OS. I thought you needed the AMD's for that.

    Looks like you also solved most of the other problems that concerned me.
