    If Xorg cannot automatically recognize your monitor's capabilities, you have to specify its horizontal and vertical refresh limits manually in the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Otherwise Xorg will use...

    [SOLVED] Re: Flash and Pulseaudio problem

    Your default device was configured to use dmix despite the fact that PulseAudio was installed and running. PulseAudio occupies the hardware audio device so that dmix can't access it. That's why the...

    [SOLVED] Re: Flash and Pulseaudio problem

    Let's run some tests to find out what's wrong. Open a terminal window and enter this command:

    This will play back one second of...
  4. [gnome] Re: Sound stops working after installing FF flash plugin

    Excuse me, but this is totally backwards. Removing ubuntu-desktop does not break system integrity. Bypassing the package manager by replacing /usr/bin/pulseaudio does.

    Re: Ubuntu 9.10 Firefox youtube problem

    No, it will send the 32-bit version along with nspluginwrapper.


    Because the 64-bit version has not been released yet.

    They play together PERFECTLY if you remove PulseAudio.

    [all variants] Re: Broken Theora support (libavcodec)

    I think the reason why Reinhard is unable to confirm the bug is because he is using libavcodec52 instead of libavcodec-extra-52 (multiverse). I already mentioned this in the other thread.

  11. Re: Time for Linux to ditch shared libraries?

    Yes. The link was in Temüjin's post that you quoted.

    I'm not saying that your code is wrong. But your bug report will have more impact if you make confirmation of the bug as easy as possible.

    [SOLVED] Re: Firefox saves bad(?) .swf file

    The MKV files you are trying to convert have already been compressed using a much more efficient codec. DivX/Xvid cannot make them smaller without severely degrading their picture quality.
