    Well strange, that folder (~/Desktop/.fr-20GNNv/.../boot-screen/) existed and had a blank something.cfg file in it. I deleted .fr-20GNNv/ and I think it's all working now.
  2. [ubuntu] gnome-screenshot will not use Desktop as destination dir

    [ubuntu] Re: Boot from CD-ROM, but install from USB?

    The specifications are definitely low, but it's the RAM that's the bottleneck. Using most text-based Linux live systems actually isn't intolerably slow, however. The CD-ROM itself and the drive both...

    [ubuntu] Re: File Transfer: HFS+ to NTFS

    That would probably be a better workaround, but I just ran the rsync job one more time and it finally worked.
    So, copying from HFS+ (journalled) to NTFS is not fun, and the entire transfer went...

    [ubuntu] File Transfer: HFS+ to NTFS

    This is a rather unfortunate situation and is far from ideal, but I don't have control over the circumstances exactly.

    A client gave me a 500GB external hard drive that was supposedly 'broken.' I...

  10. [ubuntu] [12.10] Suspend to RAM Blank Screen on Resume - Lenovo IdeaPad Z575

    I'd been using Ubuntu 10.10 on my IdeaPad Z575 since I obtained it last March, and with a fair amount of hacking I got fglrx and my wireless working. Suspend worked out of the box.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Rocks on Lenovo Z570 !!

    HOW does your suspend/hibernate work?

    Alright, well I'm glad it seemed to work out for you. You mentioned that 3D didn't work and you hadn't installed proprietary drivers; while this may work, I recommend you do install AMD's drivers or...

    I have the same problem on my A6-3420M. Though when I use the frequency scaling applet in GNOME, the CPU also only goes up to 1.5 GHz. How can this be fixed?

    right, it's true that the GPU *worked* without extra drivers, except the discrete (power-hungry) one was used by default, and 3D acceleration didn't work, so it was basically a more power-consuming...
