  1. Re: Has Desktop Linux Missed its Opportunity?

    no
  2. Re: Anyone else find ubuntu's default look to be horrible?

    I don't mind the brown, I hate the default look for two other reasons:

    1. Ugly title bar buttons;
    2. Ugly and eye-hurting fonts.

    [ubuntu] Re: Questions on switching to ubuntu

    Regarding the first three points - you might wanna keep your Vista install (dual boot) while you test Ubuntu on another partition, so that you can still do all your important tasks.

    With your PC...
  4. Re: Rate your experience with ubuntu on a scale of 1-10

    I'd say a solid 4. It works good generally, but at the end of the day I still have to boot Vista to enjoy the latest and greatest the computer world has to offer me.

    Thanks for posting these links, I regularly read at least half of them :)
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Anyway to get that new theme that comes with intrepid for hardy?

    Seriously? No can do any better? I've been searching for it too, so if you know about a download link or something, please let me know.

    Thanks a bunch!
  7. Re: What is keeping Ubuntu from topping the list of operating systems?

    The "domination" of Windows and Mac OS :) By this I mean that they are proprietary, each copy is sold for profit etc. Ubuntu is not aggressive enough in that way, it sort of floats around for people...

    Okay, from what I understand, you followed the instructions and restored grub. Now you can boot into ubuntu but not into xp? The XP boot hangs with a mouse cursor and blank screen, right?

    [ubuntu] Re: Getting ready to make a /home partition

    I assume you want to do a clean install (i.e., you haven't installed ubuntu yet).

    During the install, you will come across a section called "Partitioning". It gives you some automatic options by...

    Re: Would you/do you use non-free software?

    Free (as in beer) software is most desirable for users. The problem with paid software however is not that it costs, but that it's usually overpriced (in the eyes of users).
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Firefox and Flash audio issue (another thread)

    I apologize, my mistake.

    I might have used this solution on my Gutsy install

    http://www.derekhildreth.com/blog/how-to-fix-the-no-sound-issue-in-firefox-flash/

    it was long ago though.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Firefox and Flash audio issue (another thread)

    Excuse me, but could you actually read the title of the thread in the link before you comment? It actually says 'Hardy Heron', unless I'm hallucinating.
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Firefox and Flash audio issue (another thread)

    Have you tried this fix?

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=5587712&postcount=472

    It's as recent and 'official' as it gets, from a pulseaudio developer (afaik).

    Re: Would you/do you use non-free software?

    I surely hope the day will come when we'll have all commercial software available for ubuntu too. A little competition and more options can only be a good thing.

    [ubuntu] Re: ok i need

    I think it would be helpful to read up the official documentation on Wine

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine

    it explains how to install it, etc.

    [ubuntu] Re: Getting ready to make a /home partition

    1. Yes, that's even slightly more than enough.

    2. Put the folder /data on its own partition, or at least on one that is separate from the root partition. That way it will last through all...
  18. Re: if you designed a keyboard where whould you put the control key?

    Yes I do. That way I can reach P with my left thumb while pressing the left ctrl button. This helps me achieve a better stretch on my guitar fretboard too! :guitar:

    If I were you I would borrow/buy one and test it. You can't be sure it'll work if you don't know the source of the problem you have.
