  1. [SOLVED] Re: Western Digital portable hard drive compatibility with Ubuntu

    Linux can read/write NTFS, so no problem there. You can also format the drive to whatever file system you choose. If it is exclusively for Linux I would use EXT4. Otherwise, if you need to read data...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Installed Ubuntu 12.04, windows don't snap to half screen

    I'm running a clean install of 12.04 and that feature works. Why don't you list your hardware specs,especially video card and driver; maybe someone can get an idea through that. Did you do an upgrade...

    Re: Has Ubuntu became a commercial product?

    I, too, am not a fan of paid apps in the software center. At least I'd like the ability to turn that feature off. As far as the labeling of Ubuntu is concerned it doesn't really bother me. The more...

    [SOLVED] Re: Rhythmbox kept playing after closing

    Rhythmbox will keep playing and minimize if you already have something playing when you click on the "X". You have to go to the menu and close it or stop the sound file first.

    Are these music files? If so, what format are they in? In Banshee I just drag and drop albums from Banshee to the iPod. I believe Rhythmbox is the same.

    Re: Which Distro to choose for a Distro Hopper.

    Arch, hands down, although the new Magiea 2 is quite nice, worth a look. It runs very fast and stable for me. But if you're interested in what's going on under the hood without compiling from source...

    I second that. For some reason Lubuntu always runs more sluggishly for me than Xubuntu. Let us know how you come out!

    Re: 64 bit vs 32 bit ubuntu 12.04

    Go for 64-bit if your box supports it and it sounds like it does. I can see no reason not to use 64-bit at this point. The few problems that existed a few years ago have entirely disappeared. There...

    1. no
    2. yes

    Either update or better yet, install 12.04 fresh. Probably take less time, otherwise you go 10.10-11.04-11.10-12.04.
