DSlicerBleh, is there a global setting to remember window size and position? Turning it on for each app is getting annoying
redstickhamI had to use a package manager called Automatix to get Java on there, http://www.getautomatix.com
I've heard horrible things about Automatix.
Supposedly it installs packages in a really incompatible way and it can cause severe problems when you try to upgrade your distro.
Dunno if it's true, but I've heard it many, many, times.
specialbuddyso is there anyway to get it working?
DSlicerThanks jtt

asnomanHello guys :D
dsmith_ok I just downloaded fiesty, off to running the ISO in vmware
asnomanHehehe (Picked it up last night)
Wanted to give Kubuntu a try :/
dsmith_jarn: i never had any problems with automatix
asnomanAnyone know much about raid configurations and kubuntu.
ubotuAutomatix2 is a proprietary script that tries to install some software, and often fails and breaks systems. We don't provide support for it, and we strongly discourage its use. Problems caused by Automatix are often hard to track and solve, and it might sometimes be easier to !install a fresh copy of Ubuntu. See also !WorksForMe
dsmith_asnoman: Use 3ware
dsmith_i have two P3 machines running kubuntu at work on a raid 1
redstickhamone thing Linux has going against it is there is no easy way to install software that isn't in the repositories
asnomanCool, I have a amd64, w/ raid 0
