    Re: Nvidia / GPU Video Acceleration

    All you'd need to do is convince the browser makers to wire up support for VDPAU. In the meantime there's a VA-API/VDPAU wrapper that turns VA-API calls into VDPAU ones, but it's apparently a bit...

    Re: Nvidia / GPU Video Acceleration

    Market share and the iron grip of Microsoft.

    Microsoft can mandate that all hardware has to use whatever interface Microsoft likes, and browsers have to support that because of Windows' market...

    Re: Nvidia / GPU Video Acceleration

    Battery life. On the desktop it doesn't matter that much - you won't generally want to do it entirely in software, since a slow CPU can't keep up, but as long as you've cleared that hurdle so that it...

    Re: Nvidia / GPU Video Acceleration

    Video decoding is a set of (usually vector) calculations.

    You can do them on any CPU, in software. To hit the speed requirements of doing them in realtime, the processor has to be running quite...

    Re: gsettings... what am I doing wrong?

    Since it didn't work you probably didn't break anything, but it's worth checking that you haven't made some of the files in your Home directory owned by root. The gconf/dconf/gsettings stuff is just...

    Re: gsettings... what am I doing wrong?

    Don't use sudo with gsettings. It's just going to break things.
  7. Re: what do I need to do to run windows software and steam/EA games on ubuntu desktop

    Steam is easy: it's native. There are thousands of Linux games on Steam.

    Windows games on Steam are easy: the Linux Steam client has a fork of Wine, called Proton, built in. You can see how well...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Originally arch user, Having problems with Prime and wayland on my new ubuntu ins

    The idea's good. Have a performance part that's turned off most of the time to save power. ARM's little-big works OK. Optimus, though, is having two completely different graphics stacks that can't...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Originally arch user, Having problems with Prime and wayland on my new ubuntu ins

    Wayland's been included for years. 21.04 isn't even the first to be Wayland-by-default (that was 17.10). Wherever it is that you've been getting your information from, I think you'd benefit from...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Originally arch user, Having problems with Prime and wayland on my new ubuntu ins

    Wayland works on Nvidia for Gnome and KDE. (Mesa uses generic buffers; Nvidia uses EGL Streams, which has only been plumbed in for KDE and Gnome. Soon everything will be using something different)

  11. [ubuntu] Re: Originally arch user, Having problems with Prime and wayland on my new ubuntu ins

    Neither of these are true.


    XWayland is for running X applications in a Wayland session.



    You shouldn't use Wayland. It will work, just about, these days, but XWayland is not...
  12. [xubuntu] Re: The old icon problem: any advancements?

    The named icon for a file type is specified in the MIME-type entry; if the icon theme you're using has that file, that's what will be displayed, otherwise a more generic one will be used. It's been...

    [ubuntu_mate] Re: noatime - nvme drive

    Back in the day, when SSDs had a very limited number of writes they could do, noatime (don't write the last-accessed time to the file) extended the life of the drive. These days, though the number of...

    [lubuntu] Re: Firewire PCIe card

    I got this one when a motherboard upgrade meant I didn't have a FireWire port any more. It worked fine. No need for any drivers.
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Upgrading pre-installed LibreOffice 6 to 7

    Security updates and bugfixes get backported for all the software in the repositories. You don't need a higher version number for that.

    Re: File structure and permission assitance

    Images that aren't attached inline don't display on the mobile site, so no, not a clue.

    Terminal output enclosed by CODE tags is, by far, the best way to provide information.

  19. [SOLVED] Re: How to install Tomb Raider 1 in dosbox/ubuntu 20.04

    That's intentional by the game devs. Sometimes official patches will remove the need for the cd, sometimes unofficial cracks will remove the need for the cd.

    In this case, though, you aren't using...

    Then yes to having an entry in your filesystem table.

    Use labels if they're useful, or UUIDs. The sdx nomenclature is just based on which one perks up first; they aren't permanent and can change...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Laptop won't suspend because of a PCI device

    Looks legit to me. It seems feasible that it's a USB device that's causing the issue rather than the controller, but the upshot is the same.
