    Re: Cinnamon desktop theme

    I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 at work with Cinnamon, and it works very nicely. At home I'm running Saucy with GNOME Shell (gnome3-team PPA, but that's probably not needed anymore as most of 3.8 has landed...

    Re: Cinnamon desktop theme

    You're worried about the theme? I can't even get Cinnamon to work on Saucy. I've tried both the cinnamon-stable and cinnamon-nightly repos.

    I'd like to get Cinnamon working on Saucy, since neither...
  4. [gnome] Re: New clutter-1.0 (1.14.0-1) breaks GDM and Gnome-shell (3.6.3)

    I'm currently running GNOME Shell 3.8 from the GNOME 3 PPA (stable, raring) on my saucy install. It works fine, however I've noticed yet another undesirable change to Nautilus. When copying or moving...

    Re: Sound broke overnight

    I noticed this problem yesterday too. You don't need to do a full reboot. You can just kill pulseaudio and wait for it to respawn a few seconds later, and then your sound should work again.

    [ubuntu] Re: kernel 3.8rc6

    You can see the kernel config with:

    Most computer slowness these days is caused by waiting for IO (unless you have an SSD), so disk compression makes good sense. The CPU(s) have enough idle time that the computational overhead of...

    Well I guess a unicorn must have come riding in on a rainbow and installed my notebook using magic pixie dust.

    But I could have sworn that I installed it from a USB stick.

    Re: zRAM on Ubuntu 13.04 x86/x86_64.

    Nothing, except that it's an unnecessary step as a result of a bug in the installer. The point of a beta testing is to find/classify/fix bugs, is it not?

    Besides, if I took your approach, I'd also...

    [ubuntu] Re: New notification style?

    Nitpick much? Raring doesn't yet have any official alpha releases (not for the Ubuntu flavour anyway), so technically it's not even alpha testing :p

    rofl.... the notifications are back to the GS-style, bottom-of-the-screen type.

    And I have no idea how that happened. Gotta love beta testing ;-)

    This sounds suspiciously like Debian's unstable -> testing -> stable flow.
