  1. Re: Network Manager thinks it's on ethernet even though it's on wifi?

    I have the same issue on 16.04. Logging out and in again usually fixes it. I hope it gets resolved in a future update.
  2. [ubuntu] Re: How to increase brightness sensitivity range?

    Sorry, but do you mean did I run it?

    I ran it via terminal, but nothing happened.


    Was I supposed to do something else with it?

    Maybe I missed something.
  3. [ubuntu] Re: How to increase brightness sensitivity range?

    Well, if I have 16 settings, why are there only five levels available?

    At the lowest setting, 0, I can push the button four more times to reach 15.

    I'll try the script and report back.

    Edit:...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: How to increase brightness sensitivity range?

    It gives me an output of 15
  5. [ubuntu] How to increase brightness sensitivity range?

    Is there any way to increase the sensitivity of the brightness settings on my laptop? I have a Dell Vostro V131.

    I'd like to have more than just FIVE levels of brightness. I have SEVENTEEN levels...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    Has anyone been able to get the 3.4 kernel to work with the Catalyst 11.4 drivers?
  7. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    What's the simplest way to remove the 12.3 and install 12.4? I tried to just run it, and it worked, but it did not install the newer version. It's just the old version 12.3 still.
  8. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    are they the same as the restricted drivers that are installable in 12.04?

    [ubuntu] Re: Does Unity 2D save battery?

    I assume in that case, that since I'm using an AMD E-450 with the Radeon on the same die, it won't make much difference.

    [ubuntu] Does Unity 2D save battery?

    Just wondering. Does running the 2D version of Unity save battery life in a laptop? Is there any functional negative to doing so, other than less eye candy than the standard Unity?
  11. [ubuntu] Does apt-get update give me the same as the Daily Builds?

    Does doing a daily sudo-apt-get update && upgrade give me the same software updates as installing the daily build would?

    Re: CPU choices

    Absolutely. I'll second that.
  13. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    Yeah, sorry. I didn't mean to sound insulting. I hope that this is a good sign and that the restricted drivers work out of the box, because I cannot use this laptop without Ubuntu. Sony's drivers do...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    The current driver is 8.95.1 so that means it will be updated.

  16. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    Thanks. I'll probably use the repo version on the final release. I'm running a daily build now with the blob version.
  17. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    Does the repo driver actually work with Unity from Precise?

    I'm installing Precise.

    So far, I've noticed that the default driver works pretty well. Am I losing battery life by using it instead of the Jockey driver?

    Would you recommend the default...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    Do the Jockey drivers include the AMD control panel to adjust settings?
