    Re: Things that you hate in Ubuntu

    Not sure what you're on about. My sound files play like that. Just click them and they open with clementine, exaille - or any other music player I choose.

    But then I don't use Ubuntu atm....

    When installing another distro using Grub legacy - which is the majority of them - Ubuntu does not get detected.

    Vice versa exactly the same occurs. Adding Ubuntu to Grub legacy is manageable for...

    Ubuntu was my first Linux love and because of that it will always hold a special place in my Linux heart.

    Re: Things that you hate in Ubuntu

    You shouldn't do Linux. Why torturing yourself? Run MS systems if you need to run MS programs. No hassles - use what works for you.

    [ubuntu] Re: How do I create a wallpaper slideshow?

    Anybody tried Wally?

    I have it running in PCLinux Gnome quite smoothly. Probably not in the Ubuntu repos - but the debian packages on the web site might just do the trick.

    Nautilus is not lightning fast. Having said that, it is uncomfortably slow with me only when I use it for the first time after starting up Ubuntu. After that it is bearable.

    Hi,

    Any way I could change my storage folder for evolution from .evolution to something else?

    I can do that in Thunderbird and find that very helpful.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    However - there is one account I would like to be in evolution. Is there a way I can...

    Maybe you should be a bit more patient.... this is a community forum not a paid support. A thread should be bumped not more than any 24 hours.
