    [xubuntu] Re: thunar and ftp

    It's in Thunar's FAQ: http://thunar.xfce.org/pwiki/documentation/faq#when_will_it_support_sambanetwork_browsing Short answer: never. Part of why I prefer Dolphin and Konqueror.

    [ubuntu] Re: Getting Ubuntu to decrypt dvds

    It could be quite legal to copy the DVDs too, no? I know personally my country has no laws against making one's own backups (which I am doing now, for instance; the Yann Tiersen tour DVD I have is...
  3. [all variants] Re: VDPAU no longer working after upgrade to 10.04

    Since this computer just needs to run XBMC and . . . well, play video using XBMC, that's entirely it, I wouldn't really want to follow a potentially unstable PPA. That's what my other 7 computers...

    [ubuntu] Re: [SOLVED] Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard on VirtualBox

    I swore I replied here ages ago, hmm. Anyways. For the record:

    No, you were wrong at the time too; it has gotten WAY easier, and is outright supported, but back that far people had already...
  5. [all variants] [SOLVED] VDPAU no longer working after upgrade to 10.04

    Much of this post is just a re-hash of a similar post I put up on the XBMC forums, since the box in question is mostly used as an XBMC instance. I haven't gotten a reply there yet, though, and this...

    [ubuntu] Re: [SOLVED] Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard on VirtualBox

    It should; I actually picked myself up an older iMac the other day, and a legitimate version of 10.6 from the local Apple store. I'll get back to you on it . . .

    [Edit] First hurdle, the iMac I...

    [ubuntu] Re: Lemur battery problem: only lasting ~2hrs

    My sister's test came up with a result of an hour and fifty minutes, so, just shy of two hours.

    Looking at Top right now, all I can really see is Firefox (what I'm typing this in), Xorg,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Lemur battery problem: only lasting ~2hrs

    The only software changes she made were installing MythTV (which didn't work and caused problems, so that's gone now anyways) and installing Pidgin since Empathy wasn't working right.

    At first I...

    [ubuntu] Lemur battery problem: only lasting ~2hrs

    So, my family went and got my sister a Lemur UltraThin for Christmas (arrived recently since we ordered it WAY too late, but it came in time for the new school year). So far for the most part she's...

    HotShotDJ is wrong, pure and simple.

    Well sure it isn't officially supported . . . but I don't think it's as cut and dry as that. For one, for political reasons VirtualBox really can't be saying...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Problem with nvidia 9400 GT video card on Karmic

    Does your dmesg output have any of the same errors as lokutus25's did?

    After it starts and fails, have you tried manually (re)starting X with "sudo service restart gdm" or the like? I know with...

    ken300: In the future, another option, if you're REALLY forced to use Windows for something like this, is VirtualBox; apparently Epson's scanning utilities work fine in VirtualBox, so if you have a...

    [kubuntu] Re: Jaunty with kde3.5 ... how ?

    You'll have to make a new .desktop file with the full spiel, or run it from a terminal with all the environmental variables set. Personally I've just duplicated existing .desktop files (ie. menu...
  14. Re: Bad news. id software really is abandoning Linux.

    Well, I've been playing Quake Live anyways, so I'm definitely going to continue doing that.

    On my main computer (Athlon 4400+, 4GB RAM, 8.04LTS) I mainly use KDE 3.5.10, but I have pretty much every other big WM/DE installed, and Openbox is a frequent contributor to my computing routine.

    No one seems to have replied to you :( and I just stumbled upon this here, so I shall try.
