Re: Synaptic Question

By the way did you ever get the "when there are other updates" to work?
No. It is still grayed out. I tried clicking on it to see if it would change but no luck.

Re: Firefox appearance in lxde and unwanted title bar

Also is there a way to remove firefox title bar? You can hide the title bar with two mouse clicks. Place your mouse pointer on the title bar and right click. Choose Un/Decorate and the title bar will be gone. One of the negatives is that you will have to go to the menu to close Firefox because the ...

Re: Synaptic Question

Rex, Not everthing is negative about the N2600 chipset versus the N270. The chip is faster. It runs cool and doesn't have a fan. The temp never gets above 55 C even under heavy load. I took out the original 320 GB HD and 1GB ram chip and replaced them with a 120GB SSD and a 4GB ram chip. I have seen...

Re: How can i set the clock?

One of the problems I was having on a dual boot Windows 7 and Lubuntu was the clock constantly getting messed up when I would go from one OS to the other. It took me a while to figure out what was happening but I was able to get it right by changing the /etc/default/rcS file. Look for the line that ...

Re: Font Size in apps?

One of the problems with Lubuntu is that there are text settings scattered all over the place. Throw in someone who does an LXDE or Lubuntu desktop on top of another install like Ubuntu or Mint and there is no telling what is causing the problem. The lxpanel has a text size setting The "Desktop Pref...

Re: Synaptic Question

I love this netbook, but am wary because of your posts. Rex, The old netbook with the Intel N270 chip runs the 12.10 version without a hitch. It is the new netbook with the Intel N2600 that has the issue. 12.04 runs on it fine because of the cedarview graphics drivers that are in the standard repos...

Re: Synaptic Question

I just checked my synaptic and I can adjust it, but I am using Lubuntu 12.10. Rex are you seeing any crashes in 12.10? I was having software crashes with ubuntu-tweak and the ejecter application I talked about in another post so I went back to my 12.04 version. My new netbook with the Intel N2600 c...

Synaptic Question

I have noticed over the last several versions of Lubuntu that one of the selections in the Synaptic "software sources" is grayed out. Open Synaptic > Settings > Repositories > Updates. Near the bottom "When there are other updates" is grayed out. Lubuntu 11.04, 11.10 and 12.04 all have the same issu...

Re: EJECTER Indicator applet not working Lubuntu 12.04

UPDATE: I did a new install of Lubuntu 12.04 and installed the ejecter application from the repository. Same results as before with the application refusing to run. After some digging around I came across a bug report that reads in part: "I'm inclined to just propose removing ejecter from the archiv...
