  1. Re: What is the most important thing to you about Ubuntu Linux?

    All your listed reasons are important to me, but I first tried Ubuntu for my laptop. Laptops are notorious for having poorly-supported hardware, so I did not want to spend weeks tweaking stuff to...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Typing accented and multi-lingual characters

    Glad you got it working! Believe it or not, the Compose key is one of the main things I miss when I'm on a Windows machine. I like to use things like long dashes—to name but one—and there's just no...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: 'E:Malformed line 55 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (URI),

    You'll need to edit the file and fix that last line. Open a terminal and run:


    gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    (You have to use gksu because you won't have permission to save the changes if...

    [ubuntu] Re: remote file transfer to vista from 8.10

    Simplest way is probably this: Set up SSH on the Ubuntu system. Then you can use FileZilla to connect by SFTP.
  5. [kubuntu] Re: Mixing KDE 3.5.x with 4.2: How to get stability?

    Yay, another stillborn thread from me.

    So nobody has a clue? Putting "Kubuntu" in the title turns on Somebody Else's Problem filter? Meep?

    [kubuntu] Re: help with firefox in kubuntu

    You don't need to go through all of that stuff. :)

    You can run Adept from the K menu, search for Firefox and install it from there. Other ways include, open a Konsole and type "sudo apt-get...
  7. [kubuntu] Mixing KDE 3.5.x with 4.2: How to get stability?

    Hi, everyone!

    I've noticed since upgrading to 4.2 that although many things have improved, the Plasma engine will crash every hour or less if I am running 3.5.x applications, particularly Amarok. ...

    I just tried that game as a "visiting chieftain" (so I did not log in), and it appeared to work just fine. I got prompted twice by Java about running the applets, the game downloaded (took about 2...

    [ubuntu] Re: code fix for Synaptic Pacakge Manager

    Did you run some "apt" command trying to add repositories to your sources?

    Try opening /etc/apt/sources.list and look on line 48. The answer will probably be obvious. If it's not, get some sleep...

    I don't see any CD-text libraries mentioned on k3b's requirement's page, but further investigation shows that it is handled by cdrdao, "with drives that support it."

    So it seems that not all...

    [ubuntu] Re: How do I format a disk?

    According to this article, a Wii memory card holds a maximum of 2 GiB, so FAT16 (with standard 32 KiB clusters) would be OK.

    Simplest way I know of to do this is (assuming your card shows up as...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Help needed - 4 montiors, 1 internal gpu 1 pcie gpu

    Have you looked into nVidia's setup utility? I don't know if it would help with your setup because your other interface is an Intel chipset, but it worked quite nicely with my two screens.

    [ubuntu] Re: Transferring files and remote desktop

    I don't think you can do it directly, but if you set up SSH on one machine, then you can open a SFTP session to the other and move files securely from one to the other over an encrypted connection. ...
