  2. [SOLVED] Re: 10 year old Acer laptop with resolution problem

    So far so good. I had to burn a 14.04 CD without any point releases because I didn't feel like using another DVD and the original 14.04 ISO is the only one that fits on a CD. So i'm doing the big...

  9. [ubuntu] Re: Problems syncing installed apps in Ubuntu Software Center
