Re: Illegible characters

I get those when I have my ram clocked incorrectly and my computer is in the midst of crashing. You also might have a dying harddrive. Do tell, have you booted off a LIVE DVD and does it behave the same?

Re: Trouble with aliases and .bashrc

the Terminal application known as gnome-terminal does not read .bashrc, but rather .profile. The behaviour, in short, is as follows: bash started as an interactive login shell: reads ~/.profile bash started as an interactive non-login shell: reads ~/.bashrc I believe that bashrc is used for scripts....

Re: Unable to see any activated desklets

I have been able to add desklets to my desktop in such a way that they don't appear on the desktop. I have a dual monitor configuration, and my Primary monitor is on the right. My primary monitor is taller than my secondary monitor (on the left). When the desklets appear on the desktop they take the...

Re: Not getting any Youtube sound in Chromium - *sometimes*

Not sure, but this could be an issue of your webbrowser playing videos with HTML5 video VS Flash Video. If you choose "Sound Settings', in the "Applications" tab, are there individual sound bars?

Re: SSH remote server?

I belive you are looking for a dyndns.org account. Years ago I configured a linux server to update the dyndns.org IP address upon sucessfull DHCP of the ethernet card. So I'm sure you can do it too.

Re: Suspend on lid close when connected to external monitor

Often sleep and low power modes are custom to the motherboard. Laptops tend to have highly modified and non standard low power states. Also most laptops pull air through the keyboard, and will tend to overheat things like your harddrive and video card if your screen is closed. I've heard of taking a...

Re: Window Edges Deformed

There can also be an aspect ratio mismatch. Sometimes when booting the live CD on a computer connected HDMI to a 1080p screen, i get strange reported resolutions which arn't the same aspect ratio, thus relating to a pixle mismatch and dithering and anti-aliasing effects occuring.

Re: Window Edges Deformed

I have a bad DVI and VGA minitor cable which creates ghosting to mainly vertical lines on the screen. The higher the resolution the worse it seems to get. Perhaps try swapping out video cables.

Re: XP doesn't recognize .iso files

You second (and only) hardrive should be the only partitions detected. This will force LM instller to plac...

Re: Raid 5 with USB disks

While I appreciate trying new things. RAID is not a backup nor was it intended to run over USB. I can go on and on about technical details concerning the futile nature of your efforts. May I suggest you purchase a NAS, having the RAID connect to SATA drives directly is the way to go. Also RAID is no...
