    Maximus is misplacing windows

    After giving it a try for the last month, I decided to ditch Unity and switch to the EFL version of the old netbook launcher. To gain the ability to modify the panel, I followed the steps on this...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: VNC/ssh drops connection then won't reconnect without reboot

    PS3 = PlayStation 3
    media server = UPnP media server

    As I said, though, it could have just been coincidence that I lost the VNC connection and the PS3's connection to the media server at the same...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: VNC/ssh drops connection then won't reconnect without reboot

    Hrm... except that the PS3 lost connection to the media server at the same time as I lost the VNC connection, I'd say that this might be the problem. I had a similar issue previously in which...

    [SOLVED] Re: Add program to Unity?

    Ok... I seems like I've solved the problem. Unity apparently requires desktop files to have a Category parameter in order to show up on the Applications screen. It doesn't seem to matter what the...

    Yep. I had to do that to get it to show up on the Unity launcher bar. But the same program isn't showing up on the Unity Applications screen. For this particular program, it doesn't matter since I...

    [SOLVED] Add program to Unity?

    So I'm trying out the new netbook edition, and it has potential, but I've run into one major snag. I have a few scripts and 3rd-party apps that I normally add to the applications menu using Alacarte...

    [ubuntu] Re: File systems: ext3 vs. ext4

    Memory isn't the same as storage. If you're actually getting a memory error, then you have insufficient memory/swap. OTOH, if the error says something about insufficient space, then that pertains...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: How do I automatically restart a program on close?

    It won't actually take any processing cycles at all except when you quit the program. Unless you specifically tell it otherwise, a script will wait for a command to finish before moving along to the...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: How do I get network and volume applets back?

    If you removed the indicator applet (the one with the envelope icon, where the volume icon is located as of 10.04), then you'll need to add /usr/bin/gnome-volume-control-applet to your startup...

    [SOLVED] Re: RAR archive, how do I unpack?

    You need to install the unrar package from the multiverse repository. While I'd also suggest installing the p7zip-rar package, I'm not sure it integrates into File Roller. Once you've installed...

    Re: Home Media Server possible with Ubuntu

    "Lightweight" is a relative term... Ubuntu is certainly lighter than Windows 7/Vista, though. and can be run with no graphical desktop environment, which can further free up system resources.

    [ubuntu] Re: X doesn't start if no monitor plugged

    I had this problem recently in setting up a headless media server which I wanted to be able to connect to using VNC through ssh.

    The problem is due to KMS (kernel-mode-setting), which detects the...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: How do I automatically restart a program on close?

    Well, the simplest (but not necessarily best) way to do it would be to write a simple script that runs the program from within a while loop, similar to the following.

    [ubuntu] Re: Why is this a problem?

    Yeah... asking "Why does my CPU/memory keep pegging 100%?" is like telling the doctor "Why do I have a fever?". Without more information, it's impossible to diagnose. I don't think anyone doubts...
