  1. [ubuntu] Re: pm-suspend works, but just plain closing the lid to suspend usually doesn't.

    Wow, that was a fast response! So, first, what do you mean by "features"? I wasn't aware that not suspending out of the box was a feature instead of a bug. I do agree with the DIY part of Debian, but...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: pm-suspend works, but just plain closing the lid to suspend usually doesn't.

    Hi os2,I appreciate your thoughts, and I hope they're helpful to anyone else that might view this thread, but I've actually switched to Debian Wheezy, and don't have a computer on hand that runs...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: pm-suspend works, but just plain closing the lid to suspend usually doesn't.

    Well darn. I suspended again, and once again was greeted by a blank screen when I re opened the lid. If it's any use to anyone, I did notice before the screen shut off completely that there was an...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: pm-suspend works, but just plain closing the lid to suspend usually doesn't.

    Aha! I've only tried it once so far, but it appears to work! For the sake of anyone else watching this thread, I followed claracc's link to the launchpad bug, and used the workaround in comment 30,...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: pm-suspend works, but just plain closing the lid to suspend usually doesn't.

    Bump? I could really use some help here, I've tried everything, but I just can't seem to get suspend to work right! This is really annoying, since I normally use sleep a lot, and every time I...
  6. [ubuntu] pm-suspend works, but just plain closing the lid to suspend usually doesn't.

    So I recently installed Ubuntu 13.04 64 bit on a Thinkpad T400, and wow, this thing flies! The only real issue I've had so far is that the suspend feature is a bit unreliable. Initially, every time I...

    [ubuntu] Re: hello, brand new........

    Speaking of no obligations, since windows isn't as easy to install as Ubuntu, you may want to install Ubuntu alongside Windows, so if you have to go back to windows, all you have to do is select it...

    [ubuntu] Re: hello, brand new........

    Well, I think everyone else has hit the nail on the head, but to surmise it:

    1. Ubuntu and other GNU+Linux distributions are different from Windows. That's what makes it so refreshing, in my...

    Re: Fix dead hard drive?

    Hello calebunleashed, welcome to the forums!

    The drive size was 600Gb, and I waited for at least a day or so. (I think, but the details are a bit fuzzy now.) Granted, that was a cheap laptop hard...
  10. Re: will QML work for desktop applications?

    ok, thanks!
  11. Re: will QML work for desktop applications?

    Oh, that makes sense now, thanks for clearing that up for me! Does it only work for Unity Next, though?
  12. Re: will QML work for desktop applications?

    Thanks for the response and the link, but what does unity next have to do with QML apps?
  13. will QML work for desktop applications?

    I am interested in making applications, and I'm familiar with JavaScript, so QML sounds like a good start. What I want to know is, will applications written in QML work in the Ubuntu desktop? Most of...
  14. [xubuntu] Re: Copy graphics settings from live USB to hard drive installation?

    Sorry, I didn't see you had posted something. I actually noticed that the output of cvt was slightly different, but it gave the same output, so I didn't think it was worth mentioning.
  15. [xubuntu] Re: Copy graphics settings from live USB to hard drive installation?

    I fixed it! For future reference, I went into grub and added the kernel option vga=773 to force the screen resolution. Thanks anyway!
  16. [xubuntu] Re: Copy graphics settings from live USB to hard drive installation?

    This is the output from those commands:

    cvt 1024 768:


    # 1024x768 59.92Hz (CVT 0.79M3) hsync: 47.82 kHz; pclk: 63.50 MHz
    Modeline "1024x768_60.00" 63.50 1024 1072 1176 1328 768 771 775...
  17. [xubuntu] Re: Copy graphics settings from live USB to hard drive installation?

    I've looked at those threads and the links they link too, and every time I try to use xrandr to change the size to 1024x768, it complains that it cannot find the mode, whatever that is. I tried the...
  18. [xubuntu] Re: Copy graphics settings from live USB to hard drive installation?

    ok, I think I may see the problem. I ran xvidtune -show on both the live USB and the regular installation, and this is what I found:

    The live USB:


    "1024x768" 65.00 1024 1048 1184 1344 768 771...
  19. [xubuntu] Re: Copy graphics settings from live USB to hard drive installation?

    Ok, thanks! Should I copy paste that output into Xorg.conf to replace what's generated by sudo Xorg -configure, or should I append it to the end?
  20. [xubuntu] Re: Copy graphics settings from live USB to hard drive installation?

    -As far as I know, I have not used any boot options, or at least I have not selected any, I'm not sure if any are selected by default with the live USB.
    -Thanks for the Boot options, I'll look into...
  21. [ubuntu] How to launch commands in a separate Screen session via a bash script at startup?

    To start the server applications I'm running takes several steps, so I've decided to put it in a bash script to make it easier. When I do start it, I begin by opening a new screen session. The issue...
  22. [xubuntu] Copy graphics settings from live USB to hard drive installation?

    I am trying to revive a 9 year old Dell Inspiron 1100 with the RAM upgraded to 1 GB and Xubuntu 12.04. When I was in the live session, everything worked perfectly, but for some reason, once I...

    Thank you.
  24. Re: Is there a way to auto-backup my server?

    Does anyone know how I can mark this thread as solved? It seems since the interface has changed, it's no longer in thread tools...
  25. Re: Is there a way to auto-backup my server?

    oh! I didn't know there was a command line option for dropbox, that's good to know! Thank you for pointing that out, that should do the trick.
