    Re: gsettings and/or gconf

    I've found Ubuntu Forums is lacking when it comes to technical talk. I would post this question on Ask Ubuntu or post this question to the Ubuntu or GNOME mailing lists.

    I'm going through the same problem as you. What did you figure out as a solution? The installer won't allow me to create a swap partition.

    Amazing. Thank you very much!
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Backup software that is aware when external hard drives are plugged in

    That would work. I wonder why a developer hasn't integrated that into their backup suite yet.

    How did you go about doing it?
  11. [ubuntu] Backup software that is aware when external hard drives are plugged in

    Because a lot of users are using laptops now, and many want externals hard drives for backups, is there a program in Ubuntu (cross-platform with Windows would be nice) that backs up files to an...
  12. Re: Time Lapse Photography using Open Source Tools

    I would also suggest making your exposure, f-stop and ISO manual, because it looks like the camera was auto adjusting the entire time which creates an odd flicker in the sequence.
  13. Re: Academic books or articles on why Linux/Unix/Mac/Solaris is better than Windows

    Thanks everyone.

    Any other ideas from the community? I guess it's not exactly an academic topic to say _why_ Linux is better than Windows, so I'll have to derive my conclusion from papers that...

    Ah, ACM, I forgot about that resource. Looks like it's all over the Internet too. Thank you.
  15. Academic books or articles on why Linux/Unix/Mac/Solaris is better than Windows

    That's right, for my Operating Systems class, my professor wants me to speak on the advantages of Linux over Windows.

    I can think of a whole slew of reasons (and there are thousands of articles on...

    Try using 'gobby-0.5' instead of 'gobby' and if you're setting up a dedicated server, check out 'infinoted' instead of 'sobby'. They are the new development focus and have more features but are beta...

    [ubuntu] Re: ATI Driver in Maveric Meerkat?

    For Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, X.Org is 7.5 while X.Org Server is 1.9. As you said, the new version breaks ABI from 1.8 to 1.9 and ATI simply hasn't caught up.

    See the table on Wikipedia that...

    [ubuntu] Re: ATI Driver in Maveric Meerkat?

    Everyone, it has something to do with xorg-server being at 1.9 and the proprietary drivers haven't caught up yet. Better stick with either open source drivers or Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx if 3D support...

    Did that work for you? Because I've had nothing but problems with Ubuntu and my nVidia GeForce 6200... 9.10 Karmic and 10.04 Lucid. Thinking of trying Maverick just cause.
