As for the XFCE edition it seems the default sound mixer is not working properly. When I tried using skype I encountered that I could not turn up the "Capture"-device. (it will be set to zero every second after I change it) After some time of googling (and I am not very good at it) I found some hint...

Re: Beryl not installing on Bianca

I tried everything as posted by Alephcat. The only change I made was to try sudo wget http://ubuntu.beryl-project.org/root@lupine.me.uk.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - instead of what was given initially, because I got a general error. But after restart : $ sudo aptitude install beryl Reading package ...

i fully agree with JohnH, the panel applet (i believe it is gnome-network-manager) is just too stupid. Imagine when you turn on your PC with wireless turned off. No networks are found. Then you turn on your wireless to search for networks and guess what happens?! - Nothing... So how do you get to fi...

major FileSystem changes ?!

Hey clem and everyone else in the developing team. I have discovered some very interesting distribution some time ago. gobolinux.org What makes it so interesting is the fact that it uses a different way of using the filesystem.
