    [kubuntu] ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570

    I have the above graphics card in my Kubuntu laptop (Acer Aspire 7535G). That is to say, it's in my laptop, but it's not doing anything. The 7535G uses a hybrid solution, and I'm stuck with the low...

    Simple question. How many times have you successfully upgraded *buntu without any major problems that demanded a clean install? Is there a computer out there that's gone from Warty to Lucid and never...

  9. [gnome] Re: Bang mouse-cursor on corner screen = display all windows

    My bad. I think it's Scale and it's in the Window Management section.
  10. [gnome] Re: Bang mouse-cursor on corner screen = display all windows

    It's called Expo. I'm not sure if it's in simple-ccsm. Try installing the "proper" config utility


    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

    and look in the Desktop section.

    Yay.

    I'm using my 9.10 beta livecd, I think it's got an older version of fsck on it.
    Using the live cd I've managed to mount my root partition and /etc/fstab looks fine.

  16. [kubuntu] Re: Cairo-dock asks if it should start in OpenGL on startup

    Had exactly the same problem. Try this:
    Open System Settings => Session Manager
    Select "Start with an empty session" and apply.
    Leave the cairo-dock -c command in autorun.
    Worked for me.

    Poll: Re: AWN vs Cairo Dock?

    The consensus seems to be cairo dock for eye candy and AWN for everything else. I have to disagree. The option to create sub-docks adds a lot of functionality to cairo dock, and it's useful to be...
