  1. Virtualbox 5.0.2 locks into full screen

    New update out from repositories this morning. Blows.

    Not like this has never happened before. I tend to download and install from Virtualbox, keep older archives.

    Removed 5.0.2 with GDebi,...
  2. Re: CRITICAL Adobe Flash Player 0 day vulnerability and active exploit

    Well anyway. I kind-of gave up on running flash in Ubuntu when Flash went from version 9 to 10 and fell off the Fenway Park wall into the street. Since then (lo, many years ago), I have installed...
  3. Re: sound on Windows under Virtualbox no Audio

    Interesting that this thread is here, unresolved. All my experiments with Ubuntu and Virtualbox from Hardy through Precise tend to indicate that Ubuntu 12.04 has an unresolved bug. I've done 8...

    [SOLVED] Re: How to use GIMP 2.8 on Lucid 10.04.4 LTS

    [SOLVED] Re: How to use GIMP 2.8 on Lucid 10.04.4 LTS

    Thank you, thank you and thank you. First to "shreepads" for his, pardon the pun, "Lucid" instructions on how to compile and install Gimp 2.8 on Ubuntu 10.04. Second to "Bucky Ball" for his sly...
