  1. [ubuntu] Re: unrar Error unknown option? please help ASAP

    OK, this thread is heaps old, but here's the solution.



    rar a archiveName.rar pathToFolder


    The key is that rar doesn't take "a" as a standard flag. ("-a" causes an error, "a" is fine).

    Quick question: When you're having these issues with brasero, did you have multiple users logged in?

    [ubuntu] Re: Shutdown System Policy Question

    It's not a matter of knowing which users are logged in, so much as ordinary users cannot shut down the computer without knowing the administrators password.

  6. [ubuntu] Re: Toten, Mplayer, VLC all crash/close on video resize

    There seems to be a number of things that VLC just plain doesn't want to open (let alone play or resize). I'm thinking I've got to get a new video card at some point anyway...

    Hopefully a new card...

    This probably reflects a bug in the program.
    The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.

    I installed hardy (x64) and am running twin view on an Nvidia 6600GT

    I went to watch a movie in totem, and was prompted to install the appropriate codecs (which I did)....
