    Re: Let's compare and rate desktops!

    You're right about both. Elegant Awoken is my absolute favorite icon set.
    I love all the wallpapers you've posted, especially the 2560 x 1600 one.

    Thank you, and no, but close. It's more like a...

    [ubuntu] Re: this probably aint right

    If changing settings on your MP3player helps, that's why they're there. :P

    It seems to me you've found fixes for pretty much all of your problems. With the exception of playlists, but I'm sure...

    [ubuntu] Re: this probably aint right

    In a lot of ways, Linux does do a lot of things better than Windows. But Windows is way more accessible to novice users, and some 95% of all computer users are more familiar with it. I suggest you...

    Let's compare and rate desktops!

    The rules are simple. When you post, rate the above poster's desktop; not with numbers, but with words and such.

    No insulting rates, please.

    Re: "The perfect desktop"....

    The notification area up there stays in the foreground, and fullscreen applications merge quite nicely with it, maximising viewing area. I like things to be clean and smooth, without getting boring....

    [ubuntu] Ubuntu Software Center Issues

    Alright. Every time I try downloading anything with the software center, it tells me I can't because "The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources."

    [xubuntu] &Ugh, weird startup artifacts

    In wanting to try something a bit lighter, but not quite LXDE-light, I installed Xubuntu. I used it and loved and decided to remove the regular ubuntu-desktop.

    I'm not sure if what I'm seeing is...

    [ubuntu] Re: Editing Startup Applications

    I believe you don't really need anything turned on. You're not turning off services, or actual components of the OS, like you'd be with the Windows Services, but just which applications start up...
  9. [other] Re: Gnome wallpaper bleeding through on LXDE

    Probably. i'm just baffled as to why my Gnome wallpaper, of all other images was shown.

    Unless SimDock ALWAYS opens the path to the Gnome wallpaper, and loads it to fake transparency or something.
  10. [other] Gnome wallpaper bleeding through on LXDE

    Could Nautilus be running somehow, even when I'm using LXDE?

    PCMan is handling the wallpaper fine, but after installing SimDock, a weird rectangle surrounding it shows my Gnome wallpaper. Closing...

    [ubuntu] Re: Reducing CPU Load

    Under the resources Tab, the system monitor is always shown as using the highest % of CPU. Is the % shown out of my CPU's total capacity, or out of the current load?

    [ubuntu] Re: Reducing CPU Load

    I'll try that, but would compiz really hog that much idle CPU?

    And as for my CPU, it's an AMD Sempron 3000+ 1.8 GHZ.
    On the same note, I've noticed myh cpu seems to cycle between "Modes", the...

    Actually, that's already been done. All I have left on right now are the power, sound, and network managers + the keyring stuff.

    [ubuntu] Reducing CPU Load

    Hi, I just wanted to know if I could do anything to reduce the CPU load on Ubuntu.

    Right now I'm averaging about 10% when I'm not even doing anything, which doesn't seem right. (XP, on the other...
