    [all variants] Re: firefox rc1 weird font hinting/antialias?

    I see, although those kinds of updates are expected since those are security updates.

    I dont know if we should expect rc1 on the update manager or not, perhaps they'll do it for the final 3.0.

    [all variants] firefox rc1 weird font hinting/antialias?

    Have you guys tried firefox rc1? For some reason fonts look weird on my monitor now. It's as if they had changed the subpixel rendering of the fonts and now they look weird.

    It doesnt matter if I...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: How do we turn off the "100 gb media"-like names in hardy?

    Not sure why it is considered a bug, it clearly isn't. It's more like a discussion about what people prefer. Perhaps the best way would be to mimic Mac OS X. OS X reads the volume names, and when...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: How do we turn off the "100 gb media"-like names in hardy?

    places > computer
    right click on the volume > properties

    and change the name there?
  7. [ubuntu] Re: How do we turn off the "100 gb media"-like names in hardy?

    What he suggested is not a workaround really. Nautilus will show the volume name as per the file system specifications, if there's no name it will just identify the volume by its size. If you want a...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: How do we turn off the "100 gb media"-like names in hardy?

    Really?

    I have two ext3 partitions, one mounts at / and the other at /home

    Nautilus shows other 4 partitions: leopard, data (both HFS, I think) and xxxGB media and yyyGB media. Which are the...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: How do we turn off the "100 gb media"-like names in hardy?

    That's because those volumes don't have names. They are ntfs volumes, right? Those are the ones that dont have names on my computer the osx86 ones have their name on nautilus.
    Go to windows and...

  11. Re: How to install vmware workstation on Hardy Heron?

    I installed it with

    tar xvzf filename.tar.gz

    and then
    sudo ./vmware-install.pl

    (maybe I messed up the file names but it was like that!)

    Re: HOWTO: Rockin fonts in Gnome..

    In windows you have two ways of antialiasing:
    - regular antialiasing (that disables AA for fonts under a certain size)
    - cleartype

    I guess cleartype is similar to hinting, but I'm not sure,...
