all4naija: Thank you for the links.

The truth is that there is not typical guarantee for the use of Compizconfig in Ubuntu. I have solved some issue related to graphic with regard to use of the Compizconfig the solution was not available anywhere else. I can bet you there is problem with excessive use of it. Not only that, using it with care is always the best approach. I have used it for a very long time. People advices on the use through out many online Ubuntu communities are testaments to that.

However, it is up to you to heed this advice or come up with troubleshooting errors for us to address. I would be interested in the latter to have better understanding of Compizconfig and its related issues.

Thank you once again.


Are u interested in solving problems which u think I will have or u are praying for me to have problems so u can beat ur chest and say u solved it.. Don't understand. Tho I appreciate the concern

Lol@ your question.We learn from daily troubles to better find solutions. I am not in any way trying to do what you are insinuating in your question. However, the choice is still yours - either to use it carefully or do something else that will help us to have better idea of bugs in it.

On your don't-understand statement, it was a response prior to my former encounter with CompizConfig which you later posted some links almost disputing the idea of the unstable nature of using the utility in customizing your desktop.

Aren't you going to upgrade to 'Precise Pangolin' 12.04? As we are expecting another upgrade in December 2012 or January-February 2013 from 12.04.1 LTS.

It will be released in a week time. They have already started sending out the DVDs of Quantal Quetzal.

Re: Ubuntu Linux by Maleeq(m): 12:59pm On Oct 18, 2012

"Avoid the pain of Windows 8. The all-new Ubuntu 12.10 is out now."...

...really? thats the slogan on ubuntu.com! I personally don't like that coming directly from ubuntu.

Why wait for torrents/magnets? I've just downloaded it via http...Would install it once i get home and out of this darn traffic...firstly, on a USB though. Cant risk replacing my 11.10 and end up having the same connectivity issue i experienced with 12.04

I agree with you on that one. It is poor marketing strategy!
Re: Ubuntu Linux by blackweaver(m): 11:19pm On Oct 18, 2012
i'm a little low on data myself so i may wait a week or 2 before trying it out tho i think i'll try kubuntu this time - haven't yet taken to the unity thing

one question though, should i go 32-bit or 64-bit? My hardware supports 64bit but i'm not sure i'll be able to get all the packages i want in 64bit
Re: Ubuntu Linux by all4naija(m): 11:49pm On Oct 18, 2012
I don't know where that 'Forget Windows 8" slogan is coming from. This is what is reality onwww.ubuntu.com

Re: Ubuntu Linux by blackweaver(m): 5:18am On Oct 19, 2012
maybe they changed it after people complained - though i can imagine people still complaining about this after all not everyone has taken to unity
Re: Ubuntu Linux by 4llerbuntu(m): 8:05am On Oct 19, 2012
actually i stopped the torrents and im upgrading my box. cost of 1 whopping gig, but honestly i have so many tweaks and config on the box that i cannot even remember where and how i got some of them.

will download the iso later for clean installs on other hardware.

BTW who has ever used OpenELEC? i need to know if its worth nuking my present vanilla XBMC install for.

Re: Ubuntu Linux by all4naija(m): 11:34pm On Oct 23, 2012
I have upgraded to Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal for about two days ago. It is not so much different from Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS (Precise Pangolin), just with more features and added information. I think I like it. I will be using while it lasts.
Re: Ubuntu Linux by blackweaver(m): 6:17am On Oct 24, 2012
Trying my first Kubuntu install since kubuntu6; well it's not bad sha; now all i need to do is install my vm so i can fire up my guest os and use that as an internet gateway

What kinda connectivity are you using? Indeed, using a virtual machine would slow the internet connection a bit.
Re: Ubuntu Linux by JohnHassen: 11:29am On Oct 26, 2012
Hello Community,

Ubuntu Linux automatically mounts portable hard drives, USB flash drives and other devices you insert into the computer. If you want to access the contents of an internal drive in the computer, it must first be mounted. The process of mounting a hard drive partition makes the contents of that partition accessible as a directory. Any program can access the contents of the hard drive by reading from or writing to the mount point on the computer. Ubuntu Linux is a full featured, free, easy to use operating system. It has a large user and developer base, which yields a large number of free download able applications. However, sometimes you need to use certain programs that exist only as Windows applications. Several options exist for running Windows programs on a Linux system. All the options involve either emulation or virtualisation programs, which one you pick will depend on your particular needs and system. Ubuntu is an open source, easy to use form of the Linux operating system.

Best Regards,
John Hassen wink
