  1. [xubuntu] Re: restoring / enabling terminal beep / system beep

    Thank you for your swift reply.

    Yes, as in that post, I have enabled the pcspkr module and installed the beep program. (beep is just a means for testing - it isn't what makes beeping work). I...
  2. [xubuntu] restoring / enabling terminal beep / system beep

    Years ago, someone made a decision to quiet system sounds and beeps in Ubuntu, and there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth on the part of people who needed those beeps. At the time, it was...

    [SOLVED] Re: YouTube videos are blue

    Interesting that you got it to work on full screen. I fixed this by following the instructions
    here, where they say to log out of unity3d and into unity2d to unlock the check box. That worked,...

    [SOLVED] Re: YouTube videos are blue

    The hardware acceleration only applies to flash stuff anyway. The problem I have with the html5 trial is that years after saying they would covert everything to open formats, Google/youtube...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Can't switch desktops / window managers in 12.04 precise

    Nothing happens as I recall. I kind of went mad clicking on everything on the screen and not finding anything that did anything useful to me. However, I did find out logging in tonight that the...
  6. [ubuntu] Can't switch desktops / window managers in 12.04 precise

    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) AMD64.
    It used to be that if you installed multiple window managers/desktop environments, you could select them at the login screen. You could also choose multiple...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Best way to get SDK, ADB working on Ubuntu 12.04

    I was reading about this too. The problem is that for some reason Oracle decided not to let Ubuntu create deb packages for java, which is like the bad old days. Here's the community description:

    [ubuntu] Re: troubleshooting periodic bell

    Turns out the second xclock was from fvwm's default settings. I don't think the chime was from there. It seems to be tied to the google calendar settings. So I guess google calendar was chiming...

    [ubuntu] Re: troubleshooting periodic bell

    I am suspecting xclock now. The man page says if chimes are on it will ding twice every hour and once every half hour. I noticed this time that the ding happened a minnute and a half after the half...

    [ubuntu] Re: troubleshooting periodic bell

    Okay looking at the xclock man page it might be that it is chiming. But it seems like it should only do that when you do -chime and I am not. Somehow I have two of them, too, so there is another...

    Re: Forum Archive Decision

    That sounds like an excellent idea to me. After all by definition an archived thread is not going to be getting any new updates, so static pages are more than fine.

    Re: Forum Archive Decision

    I know it won't help the space problem but wouldn't moving the archives to another database help the performance issues? The devil might be in the details of the forum software or database.

    [ubuntu] Re: Tips to install XMMS on Lucid

    I am trying to do something similar, but the problem I have is not being able to get libglib1.2-dev since it has been out of the repos since Karmic. What repository are you using to get that part?

  15. [SOLVED] Re: Is there any google chat client besides pidgin or empathy?

    For anyone else having this problem, it turned out to be what I had gstreamer set to. Basically any sounds that happened were causing cpu spikes and it was building. Going into gstreamer-properties...
  16. Re: Adobe Flash install information for AMD64 (December 2009 update)

    Thanks for the tip re: hulu desktop. I had wondered why it quit working. I guess it hardcodes that line or something because I was sure I purged the package. Anyway that change fixed it. Hooray!

    Re: HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264

    Uh, I would definitely not muck with that directory and it is indeed super important. That's the whole section 1 of the man pages!

    The bigger question is why the install process would want to...
  20. Re: Adobe Flash install information for AMD64 (December 2009 update)

    An ominous sign, too, is that hulu is working now. Either I do have the wrong flash somehow or they fixed their problems.

    Why oh why didn't adobe include telling you the architecture when...

  24. Re: Adobe Flash install information for AMD64 (February 2010 update)

    Well, doesn't that mean that the 10.1.x versions of Flash are not affected? Because that had been available up till now, I thought. I know I downloaded it awhile back...
  25. Re: Adobe Flash install information for AMD64 (February 2010 update)

    Actually NoScript is an even better choice. Not only does it block flash, but it preemptively blocks all scripts and code. As we know any of that can be potentially harmful. You can whitelist...
