  1. [ubuntu] Re: "Places" menu uses F-Spot instead of Nautilus!

    GNOME certainly hasn't made the upgrade from 2.x to 3.x smooth, but this problem was finally fixed in Nautilus 3.x, as far as I can tell anyway.

    Good I'm glad you got it working, as I was otherwise stumped. And Bugzilla isn't the easiest thing to navigate for a mere mortal. Yes, it's true that Launchpad ignores failed builds, but so many...

    Wow. Your problem is similar to mine, only waaaaaaaaay more amplified! Based on your previous posts I was testing stuff to see if I could recreate your problem, but I now see that I was going in...

    This is not the same problem I have. I see that the b's are all shaped like the same symbol, and you say it happens outside of FF. I am willing to bet it's some sort of locale issue or font...

    Hard to say. I'm using an Intel chip as well. With the Nvidia driver installed I have to use Compiz. When I use Metacity I eventually get lots of graphical glitches and have to restart. On the...

    This "distortion" also happens to me, especially in text boxes and in the add-on manager. I haven't noticed it outside of Firefox, but sometimes restarting doesn't fix it and I have to log out and...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: installing separate version of compiz -changes keyboard shortcuts

    Glad to help!
  8. [SOLVED] Re: installing separate version of compiz -changes keyboard shortcuts

    Aha! Yes, you should delete all references to compiz in /opt, especially "compiz-decorator", if it exists. Once you do that then log out and in. Everything should return to normal.

    If it...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: installing separate version of compiz -changes keyboard shortcuts

    No, all your settings will remain intact. Reinstalling will only affect the system files (libs, binaries,etc.), none of which are your settings. Packages when installed/uninstalled should never...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: installing separate version of compiz -changes keyboard shortcuts

    Hm. Try typing this into a terminal:

    ls /usr/bin | grep compiz

    If you see a compiz++ entry among the results then it installed in /usr instead of /usr/local. It has to be somewhere:)

    I am...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: installing separate version of compiz -changes keyboard shortcuts

    Yes, the same thing happened to me. Did you delete the items in /usr/local/* that related to Compiz? Your settings will always be there and stored in ~/.gconf unless you do something to them,...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: installing separate version of compiz -changes keyboard shortcuts

    Actually, it's not obscure. It's very simple! The compiz++ script installs the new version of Compiz (0.9), which is a total re-write and will make it's official appearance in Ubuntu 11.04. It...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.10 runs slow and jerky

    I don't have all the answers, but if you have a dual core processor, which I assume you do, you need to have 2 cpu frequency applets, each set to the appropriate processor in their settings. 1.6 +...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.10 runs slow and jerky

    Glad I could help! I should probably provide a bit more information.

    Before moving to Mint I never used Ubuntu's update utility or Ubuntu Software Center. I only used Synaptic, so I don't know...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.10 runs slow and jerky

    As I mentioned previously, I too have moved to Mint 10. My desktop computer has been on for 2 days and is still working fine.

    Mint comes with it's own updater. In this updater there is a feature...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.10 runs slow and jerky

    Even with the new kernel the OS still eventually became unusable. I have uninstalled Ubuntu 10.10 64bit (for the 2nd time!) and am now using Mint 10 32bit. Everything seems to be working fine,...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.10 runs slow and jerky

    You may be right. I spoke quickly, I had only been using the new kernel a short time.

    After leaving my computer on for 24 hours with kernel rc8 and Metacity w/compositing enabled I am still not...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.10 runs slow and jerky

    Installing the latest kernel seems to have fixed it for me too. For what it's worth, I tried EVERYTHING before I installed the new kernel. I even re-installed the entire OS.

    I have tried the rc5...

  20. [ubuntu] Re: How to make rsync command open in Terminal?

    Just running "gnome-terminal" plus the command won't work.

    As for using "gnome-terminal -e" plus the command, I use it on a regular basis, mostly in mygtkmenu and shell scripts.

  22. [ubuntu] Re: How to make rsync command open in Terminal?

    Another way is to create a shell script with

    gnome-terminal -ebefore your command. that should work with any command. For example, create a new text file and name to "top" or "top.sh". Then put...
