  1. [ubuntu] Re: WiFi in 12.04 works, stops working, requires reboot

    I have the same issue on an HP ProBook 4530s.

    I can narrow my issue down to being non-adapter specific, as I've used both Atheros and Realtek 802.11n cards and have the same issue on either....

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu & New AMD Quad Core Desktop

    Honestly, I don't think you'll have many issues, though the question for me is what you plan to do with the machine? If you are just wanting a good desktop experience, have little intent on playing...

    [SOLVED] Re: ia32 libs on Amd64

    Odd, I have successfully installed ia32-libs several times on AMD64 machines through the software center. I need it because of an Adobe AIR application. Google Earth has a 64bit deb to install. If it...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: trying to install 12.04 on UEFI says "no fake msdos" present

    I installed via a USB thumb drive. I believe I had to boot it in EFI mode (an option in the BIOS boot menu). From there, I did custom partitions, and the first partition I created was a 40MB EFI...

    [ubuntu] Re: Changing volume freezes unity

    I did on my old Acer Timeline and whatever version of Ubuntu was out at the time. There were fixes available, but they only worked with varying success. It would help to know what model of computer...

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 and Pentium M CPU error

    You can always use an older version, but honestly, only Windows carries on the 32bit support (Apple has all but abandoned 32bit). Eventually, you have to make your software support common hardware,...

    [SOLVED] Re: AMD A6-3500 triple core not recognised

    If you go over to AMD.com and download the catalyst drivers and follow the install instructions, you should see better results.

    [ubuntu] Re: Is Ubuntu for me?

    Problem is, the laptops of today won't last nearly as long as the laptops of 5 years ago. Quality is terrible, and it's a mad rush to dump the best "specs" in them, all while saddling it with a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Chromium launching 5 process?

    It's all a part of Chrome/Chromium sandboxing. It's totally a good thing, as it keeps rogue sites from reaching beyond their dedicated process, thus keeping your tabs fully separate. Multiple...

    [all variants] Re: Best Linux Laptop under $1000?

    Sadly, so many notebooks sold today come with really bad panels. Usually like 1366x768, even on a 15.4" screen. That would be a big one to look for IMO. Apple laptops usually have good build quality...

    [ubuntu] Google Earth and ugly fonts

    I am running 12.04 64bit, and I just can't get Google earth to look halfway decent. The fonts are ugly--a very aliased times roman font that is hard to read. Software center says mscorefonts is...

    [lubuntu] Re: Show desktop hot corner

    You're welcome. Like I said, it can be a little buggy. Especially window transparency. Occasionally it makes them non-responsive.

    [ubuntu] Re: ATI/ATI Hybrids

    I had much better luck when using the AMD drivers when I was messing with 12.04 beta 2 on my Llano rig. The Additional Drivers failed to install, while AMD's worked perfectly. I suppose that's...

    [ubuntu] Re: ATI/ATI Hybrids

    Are you running the Catalyst drivers from support.AMD.com, or from Additional Drivers? I think you'll have better luck using the ones straight from AMD.

    That will get you "Show Desktop" and Expose-like "Show all running" hot-corners. It can be a little buggy if your graphics aren't great. I think it requires 3D capability....

    [ubuntu] Re: high CPU use ATI drivers

    You don't want to do a distribution specific install. Choose the other option. If you run into compatibility issues (like it says no supported card), you might try older versions of Catalyst. The...

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04-Adding Day/Date to Panel in Fallback

    Maybe I don't understand exactly what you are wanting. For me, I click on the time, then "Date & Time Settings." Click on the Clock tab and there's the options to select what shows.

    [ubuntu] Re: AMD APU - Multiple GPUs?

    I'd kinda like to know the answer to that as well. If you were to try it at all, I'd highly recommend using the Catalysts from AMD.com.
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Serious regression with Ubuntu 12.04 and Intel HD 3000 graphics (Sandy bridge)

    You can see my specs in my signature, and my motherboard has an EFI BIOS. Basically, when doing my install, I needed to create an EFI partition of about 40MB along with my other usual partitions. The...

    I'm using the HD 3000 with my i3 2125 on 12.04, and the graphics are just great. Unity runs in 3D, scrolling is fast, and I don't see any artifacting or glitches. That's running with no special mods...

    How are you monitoring CPU usage? If it's with System Monitor, go over to the processes tab and sort descending by %CPU. At the top will be your big users. Sadly, System Monitor is often the culprit!...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Install does not progress past "Preparing to Install" screen

    It makes me suspect that there is some sort of hardware issue going on. Either something is faulty or not compatible. Maybe a BIOS update would help? Seems unlikely that something is wrong with the...

  25. [ubuntu] Re: Install does not progress past "Preparing to Install" screen

    I should be faster, for one. It saves you from having to use a blank CD/DVD. It might also be more reliable since a bad burn might produce mixed results. I guess it's one way to eliminate your...
