snoukkisso I've been running edgy for few weeks now.. I like it.. but I'm having trouble with opengl.. when in fullscreen mode I only get crappy refresh rates (below 60Hz).. My graphics adapter is Radeon X550 (RV370).. Any tips where to begin troubleshooting?
nickoChousuke: that's what im trying to do.. so i should partition / 40gb , /home 5gb, swap 1gb, and what as fat32?
digitalspaghettiahh HymnToLife - that would be the 'Hosts' tab at the end of the Networking panel then
i should add it there, instead of gedit'ing my /etc/hosts ?
KillerTnicko why fat32?
Chousukenicko: / is too big probably.
pseudoroot40 GB is huge for /
HymnToLifeshould be the same, as far as I know
nexousHey, is there a console like program where I can set the whole thing to transparency rather than just the body text?
Chousukenicko: how much space do you want to allocate?
total
HymnToLifenexous, you'll have to use a compositing WM for that
KillerTnexous: u mean the title bar and stuff?
nexousKillerT: yes, I'm using Konsole right now, but the body is only transparent.
_RomanI have a Brother HL-1230 printer connected via the parallel port. I am running Ubuntu 6.06. I can print a test page fine, but when I print from an application all I get is a blank page. Does anyone have any suggestions?
nexousHymnToLife: I'm using gnome.
nickoChousuke: i have 160gb hd, about 90gb for win and the rest about 50gb for ubuntu
Chousukenicko: okay
HymnToLifegnome is a Desktop Environment, not a Window Manager ;)
nexous:D xwindows maybe?
Chousukethen do 5GB for /, 5GB for /home, 1GB for swap and the rest for /data
HymnToLifenexous, nope, the WM you're using is Metacity, default in Gnome
KillerTnexous: I use beryl for my wm to support transparent title bars
HymnToLifeyou'l have to use Compiz and friends
nickoChousuke: okay for 40gb for / or /home?
digitalspaghettiHymnToLife, unop : thanks v much - i think i may have solved my problem
HymnToLifeor switch to KDE because KWin can do it natively :)
Chousukenicko: why?
nexous'and friends'?
Chousukenicko: you could store all big files on /data instead of /home or /
digitalspaghettii'll only know tonight when i get home. but one thing i am learning about Ubuntu - just keep looking
unopdigitalspaghetti, yw (eventhough i didnt help much) .. :)
HymnToLife!compiz
ubotuCompiz (compositing window manager) and XGL (X server architecture layered on top of OpenGL) - Howto at http://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager - See http://tinyurl.com/pw5ez for Kubuntu systems - Help in #ubuntu-effects
pseudorootnicko: root install is only like 2 to 3 GB... you shouldn't need 37 GB for growth :)
KillerTHymnToLife: I believe u can in metacity too
Chousukenicko: and if you make /data a fat32 partition, it's accessible from windows too
nickoChousuke:now it's getting confusing.. another partition /data?
Chousukenicko: yeah
four partitions.
