    Re: OMG I think I've switched to Chrome!

    Can you give a link? Have you filed a bug report?
  2. Re: Marks Shuttleworth's message to all Ubuntu haters.

    I find Unity to be in general smoother for desktop switching, application switching and maximizing/minimizing windows on my machine (Nvidia) and another one (AMD) which I had occasional access to...
  3. Re: Marks Shuttleworth's message to all Ubuntu haters.

    Actually it is very functional now for me. I use the desktop wall and use the scale addon in Compiz to pick applications from all virtual desktops, so point the mouse at a hot corner to expose all...

    Re: OMG I think I've switched to Chrome!

    Chrome is only fast if you don't open many tabs, it uses also a lot more ram than Firefox, it doesn't have the addons I use and if they exist the Chrome version doesn't work as well (adblock, for...

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    How old is an "older" computer? Everything I have seen made in the last 10 years supports booting from usb. I am not talking about cutting edge, you know.:P There may be a few dinosaurs around that...

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    I don't see how it is so difficult, you can make a .desktop file by simply grabbing an existing one and modify a few lines. Linux has its way of doing things, I find it very nice that you can do many...

    Re: what is totally not for human in Ubuntu

    It is easy to add custom shortcuts, make a .desktop file, make it executable, put it in .local/share/applications then drag it to the Unity launcher (it will also show up in the dash). You can see...
  8. Re: Marks Shuttleworth's message to all Ubuntu haters.

    Don't know about Mir, but Unity is already a better work platform than KDE IMO, I have both. But of course "better" is quite subjective so maybe you will always find KDE a better work platform.
  9. Re: Marks Shuttleworth's message to all Ubuntu haters.

    I think Xmir will stay in 14.04, it is X fallback that they will remove provided they get the graphic card manufacturers to support Mir. If everything works well then Xmir will be removed in 14.10...

    Re: 12.04 Shutdown Skype Completely

    It is in 12.04. If somehow it doesn't show up, open dconf-editor (install dconf-tools if not installed already), go to desktop > unity > panel and add 'skype' to the systray-whitelist (or simply...
  11. Re: Removing Ubuntu and going back to Windows Vista?

    I am very pleased without MS fonts. I wouldn't give the impression that it is something that one is expected to do after installing Ubuntu (like some blogs on "10 things to do after installing Ubuntu...

    Backup and reinstall all your programs in new install, transferring sources.list etc (of course have to make sure that ppa exists for the new Ubuntu release and change name accordingly)

    Re: Paranoia dual-boot question

    I found this article, http://aboutthebsds.wordpress.com/2013/03/31/bsd-vs-linux/

    Basically it says BSD is crap in terms of usability and its security (e.g software audit) is exaggerated way out of...

    Re: .MOV file woes. :(

    I tested your video again on 13.04 (it was on 12.04)

    Totem (aka "Video) - Only video

    Vlc - not available, not installed

    Smplayer - Works perfectly again. This time the backend is just stock...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: compile new kernel vs upgrading - EOL versions

    You could have kept your configurations if you have a separate /home so just reinstall over / or if not just save your home folder. do a clean install and copy the /home back and remove some outdated...
  17. Re: Removing Ubuntu and going back to Windows Vista?

    Mac's security model is not the same as Linux. For one thing, it is not open sourced so there is no constant monitoring and fixing of weaknesses,Just because you are too timid to switch to Linux...

    Re: .MOV file woes. :(

    I downloaded your file

    VLC - Only Sound
    Totem - Only video

    Smplayer -- plays perfectly with video and Sound. :) But it uses as backend a self compiled version of mplayer2.

    Re: Include Wine by default?

    A dual core with 8g is not 'low end' for me. I do most stuffs on a dual core 4g. Running a VM on the background at all time is out of the question for me.
  20. Re: Removing Ubuntu and going back to Windows Vista?

    One reason (not the only one of course, see the WIki) that makes Linux a lot safer is that it discourages certain user habits, such as downloading random freeware on the web. It is interesting that...

    Re: The New Gmail Inbox ! WOW!

    I think it is terrible, it seems to just label my emails more or less randomly. I would rather just check my inbox the old fashion way.
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Problems with installing Ubuntu 12.10

    WUBI is not "dual boot". It is limited and not very reliable and probably not even maintained anymore. If you want to dual boot then please make a partition and do the real thing.

    You are missing the point. The place of WIne is not just to run windows software, it is to be able run windows software IN LINUX WITHOUT HAVING TO GO THROUGH WINDOWS, so that such software can be...
  25. Re: Removing Ubuntu and going back to Windows Vista?

    Yes, bleachbit would be like CCleaner. But unlike CCleaner, it doesn't come with crapware like Ask toolbar. :)
    You don't need anti-virus for Ubuntu.
