    Re: First impressions of 12.10

    I upgraded my desktop computer to 12.10 a few days ago. I ususally use Xfce but after the upgrade xfce4-panel segfaults so I don't have panels. Gnome-shell didn't work either (can't remember why)....

    Re: Xubuntu 12.04

    Another Xubuntu convert here. I tried to like Unity -- I really did try hard -- but I just can't. Same with Gnome Shell. Cinnamon is better but still needs some polish IMHO. Tried LXDE and it's nice...

    I just started using Bodhi on an old laptop I got two days ago. It has 512mb of ram and Bohdi runs great on it. E17 seems pretty stable and very usable from my short experience with it. The only...

    [ubuntu] Re: Compiz 0.8.8 Upgrade Problems.

    I'm not sure your complied compiz is the problem. I'm running Lucid on my netbook and after I updated my system (about 14 hours ago) compiz stopped working here too. Trying to start it manually gives...
  7. Re: Boot to Ubuntu on Hard Drive via USB drive

    I don't think you need Ubuntu on the USB drive. You only need Grub on it, and you need to configure it so that it boots an OS from your hard drive. I never tried it myself, but I don't think it's...

    I really don't think they can stop this. Well, being Oracle, they may well try to anyway :?

    Re: LibreOffice: OpenOffice.org Liberated !

    This is excellent news, but "future releases" must mean 11.04 or possibly even 11.10. I really hope to see LO packaged for 10.04 LTS or 10.10 in the coming few weeks.

    Re: LibreOffice: OpenOffice.org Liberated !

    That's right, .rpm package files are used in other distros (e.g. Red Hat and Suse).
