    oh yah you should mention that with some NVIDIA cards (or all, maybe I'm mistaken?) you have to open a terminal and type
    Code:
    gksudo nvidia-settings
    to change to a decent refresh rate (that is, after installling the proprietary drivers)

    The goal of the tutorial is to show the basic steps. I did add a little blurb at the end linking people to the Desktop Effects & Customization subforum for extra help, though.

    I've also added another page on installing ubuntu-restricted-extras:

    Great job on those tutorials!! Maybe you can add my gpg tutorial when you are done -- its on the advanced side.

    Just kidding of course -- but keep up the good work. Your tutorials were the first thing I used when I first switched to Ubuntu.

    Okay, it's taken me several days... almost a week, but I think I have the bulk of Psychocats updated for Ubuntu 8.04. I may do a proofread in a few days and just make sure there aren't holes I've missed. Eventually, I'd like to update the PartImage tutorial so it isn't using Hoary Hedgehog screenshots.

    The biggest change is probably to the page on installing software. I thought my old page was a little too text-heavy for beginners, and I really wanted to point people in the direction of using the easy ways to install software and using the more difficult ways as a last resort, and include as little explanation as possible without neglecting essential information.

    More changes to come, but they'll come slowly.

    You're welcome. I'm not sure of the exact numbers, but I'm glad it's been of help to people. After all, I get this free product from Ubuntu and want to give back. Since I'm not a programmer or philanthropist, this is the best I can do.
