    [lubuntu] Re: A complaint

    Hi fund_raiser,

    I don't think it's quite correct that Linux doesn't support hardware accelerated videos. It does just fine. The problem are browsers. AFAIK, Firefox is yet to get hw acceleration...

  3. [ubuntu] Re: ububtu 16.04 won't boot, stuck in purple loading screen

    What you describe is normal then. At the login prompt you first need to give your user account name and then the password for it. You would've created at least one account when you installed Ubuntu,...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: ububtu 16.04 won't boot, stuck in purple loading screen

    From your description it appears that the boot process gets completed successfully and you get as far as the tty login prompt, but you can't type anything right? Did you try changing to another tty...

    Shouldn't those entries be archive.canonical.com instead of srchive.canonical.com?

    [all variants] Virtualbox modules and Secure Boot

    Just a quick question. Is it still the case that Virtualbox's kernel modules will not be loaded by Ubuntu's kernel when Secure Boot is enabled on an UEFI system, unless you go through the cumbersome...

    [ubuntu] Re: get andale.exe

    But why is this package broken on Ubuntu considering Debian is upstream and Ubuntu could always pull the non-broken version from the former?

    Re: Weak passwords survey

    The problem is, every authentication system can be beaten by sufficiently organised efforts. The key is to decide the security:convenience ratio for each object you're trying to protect. I'm wary of...

    Re: Ubuntu Scientists Team

    This is a nice concept! I studied biology (Masters in bioinformatics) as well, and might take it further if things work out. Shall join the Launchpad team. Thanks!

    [all variants] Linux can be weird sometimes!

    Hello all,

    This weird little problem illustrates how a seemingly "minor" change can cause severe issues in a completely different place!

    [lubuntu] Re: Dropbox file manager extension for Lubuntu

    Yeah. It seems that only 'nautilus-dropbox-extension' has this, and I guess those on other desktops are left high and dry. Perhaps the dropbox CLI can do this, but it won't be as convenenient as...

    Hello all,

    I'm using Lubuntu 13.10 and just installed the Dropbox client and set it up. I notice that using Lubuntu's default file manager (PCManFm) I'm unable to right-click files inside my...

    Hi caribou suggested you launch Ubuntu Software Center from a terminal emulator so any error message can be spotted. Launching from the menu will not display such messages. Please follow the...
  16. [lubuntu] Re: Message during startup: /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 is not available or ready yet

    Err... of course it is truthful.

    If this is the case then I wonder why the system tries to mount it before the crypt support becomes available, and why a spurious message about it is printed?...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: i changed a 100 mb partition (may have been made by windows) to swap space

    Hmm it seems you've created four primary partitions which means you cannot create any more partitions. That's how the MBR partition format works. People who need more than four partitions normally...

  20. [SOLVED] Re: i changed a 100 mb partition (may have been made by windows) to swap space

    Never heard of Windows using a dedicated boot partition at least on legacy BIOS systems. I've no experience with UEFI systems. Now you've learnt never to delete/reassign partitions without knowing...

    My processor is Intel Pentium (formerly Dual-Core) E2140 (Allendale core) and I don't think it supports either Vandepool or Pacifica technologies. :-(

    Virtualisation generally sucks for games. I don't get the kind of framerates for Morrowind in VirtualBox like I do on WINE.
