Re: ubuntu for gold

It doesn't look like Asus is in a hurry to get their things certified. Other companies have a more respectable presence. Also an interesting link. I knew Dell had done a lot, but had no idea Lenovo were at all involved. I suspect Asus was only interested at all because, particularly in the beginnin...

Thanks for that, it's a handy reference. The netbook in question is indeed on that list, although I did expect the list to have been longer.

Re: ubuntu for gold

Thanks for being willing to try and help, Phasma, but I really can't be bothered. All things going well, about 6 weeks from now I will sell this thing on ebay and use my prettier half's 12" Asus netbook until next year when I'll be looking at buying something else for myself. I'd put more effort int...

Re: ubuntu for gold

Reboot and log in on the recovery console. Remove the offending package and reboot. What's the offending package? It's the most difficult bug I've ever tried to track a solution for. Intermittent, reappearing every so often for a few years now apparently, but a bit different each time. :? I spent m...

Re: ubuntu for gold

Thanks for all those replies, they made Ubuntu great - until this weekend. The "hangs on checking battery state" bug reared its ugly head after an update, rendering Ubuntu unusable - can't log in at all. Luckily I'd been backing stuff up properly so all I lost was a couple of hours of scripting. I r...

Re: Vyzor, UI Manager for Mudlet [Beta?]

Thanks heaps. Turned out to be a tiny mistake making me skip that background/brush bit. It's all working now.

Re: Vyzor, UI Manager for Mudlet [Beta?]

I've reached the point in my framework where I am working on greying out the skill icons while they are unavailable. I'm attempting to do it by superimposing another frame over the top if it, with a background colour + translucency. I wish to do it this way because I intend to have an image for ever...

Re: Mudlet API requests

A function to open the IRC window would be useful - since IRC supports PMs, it's useful for more than just Mudlet help. As well as an event when IRC is connected to. Kikon wrote a mudbot module that displays irc in the main window, looking a bit like just another in game channel. I never liked it m...

Re: ubuntu for gold

Yeah, agreed. It was pretty crappy, but it's certainly a lot more stable now. It does not have all the features of the Windows client, but it's most definitely in a usable state. That might be a good thing. Skype on windows is getting more and more bloated - all I want out of it is a contact list, ...
