  1. [ubuntu] apt-mirror downloads same files every time

    [all variants] Re: Interlink VersaPad driver/problems

    Okay, so I know that Ubuntu and Linux in general have pulled some code from FreeBSD from time to time, but I'm not sure how this would work. It LOOKS like FreeBSD's moused(8) has VersaPad support:

    As a bump and new info, it seems that FreeBSD supports some basic VersaPad input - any thoughts on this, and is it possible to merge it?

    [all variants] Interlink VersaPad driver/problems

    All,

    I have a Toughbook CF-31 that comes with a Interlink VersaPad. Out of the box with Windows 7, it works fine. In Ubuntu, it is completely unresponsive. However, I emailed the manufacturer and...

    [all variants] Interlink Versapad on CF-31 Toughbook

    It works in the out of the box Windows 7, but not on Ubuntu (or Backtrack, which is my goal). This is a fairly new device from what I can tell. It's listed as PS/2 as far as the interface. Can anyone...

    [ubuntu] Re: 11.04 Global menu only when maximized?

    I could have SWORN that the global menu was going to exist only for maximized windows - I think OMGUbuntu had a post on that. Furthermore, maybe it's just because I was tired when I installed it, but...

    Do careers exist promoting Ubuntu/FOSS?

    Community,

    I'm graduating from the University of Arkansas in May with a Master's in Management Information Systems. I have a BS in Computer Science and an Assc. in Engineering. I've been applying...
  10. Re: Adobe-acknowledged petition to bring their Creative Suite to Linux

    Enough with the flame wars! Some of you don't want this, and we get it. Some of us do. Can we focus on spreading the word about this post instead of arguing Stallman vs Torvalds?
  11. Re: Adobe-acknowledged petition to bring their Creative Suite to Linux

    I tried submitting this as a story to Engadget, but it's not something that they would regularly feature. Maybe if more people submitted it, it would get attention and they would be willing to post...

    Oh, I'm well aware that Linux plays a role behind the scenes (BS in CS and MS in MIS). I just think it's time to push it to the desktop/laptop/netbook arena.

    True, and I wish you didn't have to dig on the Dell website to find the option. Perhaps have a front-page link to Dell from Ubuntu.com?

    As for breaking on upgrades, Ubuntu needs serious help with that. Well, so does any OS. That's why I switched to using a seperate /home partition. Upgrades worked well from 8.xx-9.xx, but I think the...

    Ubuntu advertising

    So, I know a LOT of people who know of only two things: Windows and Mac. They've never even heard the word "Linux." If they've never heard of that, they've probably never heard of Ubuntu, either.
