  1. Re: mce usb lirc irsend with natty Does it work?

    Sorry to necropost, but I can't seem to find an answer to this question either. Getting Lirc to work with ir-core and devinput is trivial, however there seems to be a lack of information on irsend.

    [ubuntu] Re: Pixelated screen when activating Compiz

    Thank you for your suggestion Rogbert, although I've been at this thread before. While I've already used this to get compiz running at 16 bit color depth, it doesn't seem worth it to get fancy...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: HELP! Computer unusable after upgrade to 9.10

    OK, I've isolated the problem. After a reformat and reinstall, everything was working well until I enabled metacity compositing. This completely breaks karmic, in that all I have afterwards is a...

  13. [ubuntu] Re: No GNOME Apps Load... Could Not Send Message to gconf Daemon

    Well, to anyone who stumbles on this thread, I found something that worked. I just deleted these folders from my home directory: .gnome, .gnome2, .gconf, .gconfd, and .metacity. The only thing I lost...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: No GNOME Apps Load... Could Not Send Message to gconf Daemon

    Thanks for that link, but I think the problem might go deeper than that. My system doesn't recognize the "dur" command on that page, and I don't think the problem is the disk quota. I went on to the...
  15. [ubuntu] No GNOME Apps Load... Could Not Send Message to gconf Daemon

    So I booted up today to a nasty surprise. I guess the system wasn't shut down correctly, since I left the system on sleep without plugging it in, and the battery died. All I get after the bootloader...

  19. [ubuntu] Re: Loud Annoying Noise Through S/PDIF While Paused

    So I've been doing some research, and apparently other people have had this problem, just with different sound cards. On this forum (http://www.nabble.com/looping-S-PDIF-data-td17573493.html),...
