    What is this thread about

    Am I missing something or is this total nonsense/spam.
    I was dumbstruck reading the thread and had no clue as to whether I should report it or not.

    Re: What is this thread about

    I guess April Fool's Day is a bad day to post for help.

    Thread's like this, on a day like this, can lead one to mis-think the OP's sincerity.
    I think best to try to at least help the OP.

    Posts like Ha Ha, don't help any.

    It seems though, that the OP does have a genuine issue with getting a drivers for the gpu working.
    so...

    I say help away, if you can.

    Edit: In case any one reads this and is confused by the Ha Ha reference, that has since been removed from the linked thread in post one.

    Agreed, the April Fool reference does seem rather out of place.....

    Marking this thread as Solved.

    I have just reverted to the OP and lets see if there is some light thrown by him on the matter

    Wondering what you did with pacman7de, the person vanished as suddenly as he appeared.

    Do you the first post #2 in the thread?
    or the actual user?

    The post was unhelpful and, in a way dispiriting, so they removed it.

    My thought is the OP of the thread might be a non-english speaker(or something like that), so it seems impolite to just assume they are posting random stuff, and then laugh it off as if a joke.
    When if fact it's hard enough for them to phrase what they mean.
    Of course that's a guess, at best.

    Hopefully the OP comes back and answer some of what you ask or something.
    Till then...

    Didn't get you there.

    The English of the OP was really not a hindrance.
    If only he was posting about the problem he faced that would have been nice and helpful, but his comments on Ubuntu in general actually made the total post quiet confusing.
    Lets hope the Op gets back with a clearer picture of his problem.

    And about pacman7de, actually today only I saw his two posts : one was 'yes' other was that April Fools comment.
    Now I noticed that both the posts have been removed.
    Really good work by the Mod/Admins. It's just that I didn't want to report against anybody.

    Way off Topic: deadflowr, best of luck with your Membership application. I am here nearly a year and have always found you to be very helpful and enthusiastic.
    Once again, my best wishes.

    Nothing obvious about it at all.

    Just a reminder to everyone about what to do if you think that a post is a troll post:

    1. Please use the Report Post button to report it. Forum staff will discuss the post in a confidential area and will then take appropriate action if action is warranted.
    2. Please don't attempt to moderate yourself. Leave the moderating to the moderating staff.
    3. Please don't respond with attempted humour or sarcasm or in a way that is contrary to the forum Code of Conduct. Your attempt at humour may fall flat and you may find the boot is on the other foot with accusations of trolling made against yourself.


    I think this thread has run its course. Thread closed.
