Modify settings or unsubscribe at:
https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-users

Only you can unsubscribe yourself.

I quoted this from the botton of your message:

"Modify settings or unsubscribe at:
https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-users "

Actually, it is at the bottom of this message as well as it is at the bottom
of every message posted to this list. Hope that was of some help; no-one can
help those who can't help themselves.

I think the people who just want to quit are running on one burner
and it occurs to them they do not know how to quit. Never occurs to them
to LOOK AT ANY MESSAGE.

So we explain here and they go away. Jimmy who was asked to leave
didn't need to find out why, but he is now sending me mail wanting me to
understand him. Fat Chance of that!

No, sadly it really wouldn't. If seeing the unsubscribe message on the bottom
of 100+ messages per day doesn't help, seeing it once a month won't matter at
all! It is odd that people ask others to unsubscribe them because if it
were set up that way people would just unsubscribe other people all the time.
It would be kaos! You could subscribe someone else to a maillist alot easier
than you could unsubscribe a person. Personally, I always have wondered how
a person who could not unsubscribe himself from a mail list ever managed to
get himself subscribed in the first place!

Nope. As others have pointed out, if someone can not read the bottom of
a message he or she is replying to, I do not immagine he/she will go to
the trouble to read an old message. It will only clutter the mailbox of
people who know how to with no advantage whatsoever.

Moreover, doing this kind of things strikes me as adhering to the
windows underlying philosophy that: 1) you should be idiot-proof, and 2)
the only way to achieve this is to treat everybody as an idiot.

People should try to better themselves, and other people should help
them to. _my_ policy, when I get to see a message like this is either to
ignore it or to reply directly to the OP. Why not to the list? Well, as
someone pointed out in a thread which ended up into flame and thus is
not worth identifying, answer to the list are here so that everyone can
profit from them. Since I suppose that the great majority of people on
the list _is_ able to read the bottom lines of the message, an answer
to the list does not make sense. On the other side, if a lot of people
send private messages to the OP, maybe, just maybe he or she will start
to understand. Or may be not, my brother always says I have really to
much faith in human nature....

Yes, a while ago, maybe a year or so. Maybe there have been some
improvements since then? I tried the version available in the Ubuntu
9.04 repositories, so maybe there is a much newer version available
for Ubuntu 10.04. I'll have a look.

==========================================

Here is the work-around: Install "PulseAudio Device Chooser" then go to
"Volume Control", "Input Devices"... then unlock the level (slide bar).
Make the settings different... mine is 99/98%. Don't know why this
works or why it isn't FIXED by now, but there you have it.

Thanks. I'll be patient.

Don't forget I can gather information by booting from the 10.04 live
USB and I can also do command line operations when booted with
the old 9.10 kernel (use apt-get, for instance).

Tried it and it doesn't seem to suit my needs at all. Seems to be made
with DVD etc in mind and that's not what I had in mind.

Some questions:

1. Is your ISP in the UK?
2. Is it any one on Virgin Media's companies?
3. Have you recently downloaded your .iso file of (K)ubuntu through
torrent?
4. Have you downloaded software/music/videos lately?

I downloaded the flashplayer from adobe (in the tarball - not the deb!). I then

Thanks, we will give this a try.

Here is information I was entering earlier but did not finish before I sent it.

I had her restart and enter recovery and then recover broken packages,
something like that. She did that and upon resume normal boot she
noted that I had her restart and enter recovery and then she noticed
upon boot that 1) "pulse configured for user session" was not checked
and "speech dispatcher configured for user session" was also not checked

Yes, most (if not all) dv cameras need Firewire to grab dv, USB is usually
only capable of grabbing still shots from the camera. This may or course
have changed since last I looked at it but unless you have managed to pull
dv of the camera using USB in Windows then you have no chance under Lucid.

For reasons described in this thread,

http://kubuntuforums.net/forums/index.php?topic=3111517.0

I am unable to use either the gdm or kdm login managers.
I can start KDE from the terminal on lucid with

startx /usr/bin/startkde

Does anyone know how to start GNOME from a terminal session
analogous to starting KDE above, e.g., is there a

startx /usr/bin/start_gnome_from_terminal

command?

Thanks!

well, that could mean your Atheros wifi-card is flakey, or the router is
rejecting you, either because of the torrents, or because it is out of

Subject: Install vncviewer rather than tightvncviewer? (for full
screen mode)

I want to install vncviewer (from realvnc) rather than tightvncviewer,
because I can not extend tightvncviewer to the full screem mode.

$ sudo apt-get install vncviewer

[...]

Note, selecting xtightvncviewer instead of vncviewer
xtightvncviewer is already the newest version.

It seems that to install realvncviewer. I have to go by the following way.

http://heilubuntu.blogspot.com/2009/03/installing-realvnc.html

Is there a realvnc package that is available in apt-get? Or there is
any vncviewer available in apt-get that has a full screen mode? BTW, I
use the previous LTS not the latest LTS.

Subject: DVD menus created with DeVeDe look screwey on DVD player
To: ubuntu-users@lists.ubuntu.com
Message-ID: <1274733375.4115.120.camel@BEC-LIN>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8"

Hey everybody,

There's been a bit of talk about using DeVeDe recently for making DVD
movies, so I thought I'd give it a try, as I had a compilation movie I
needed to make, and DeVeDe seemed to do exactly what I wanted. However,
there's an issue with playing disks created with DeVeDe on an actual DVD
player: The menus are all completely unreadable and unusable.

The menus, when running the DVD in an actual player, ripple and tear as
though using an extremely low refresh rate or something. In addition,
they're offset so that the middle of the menu is on the left side of the
screen with a big black bar on the right.

The videos on the DVD play perfectly with no issues, and the menus also
look just fine when played on my computer (through Totem and VLC) so I
was wondering if there's some setting I may need to change that I missed
to get the menus to look right. Also, I used to use QDVDAuthor for doing
this sort of thing, but it's just too unstable for my taste... however,
despite it's instability, menus created with that program work perfectly
on my DVD player.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Could it be a PAL/NTSC problem? i don't have a problem at all on either
of my 2 Sony (NTSC) dvd players, one connected to a Sony flatscreen via
HDMI, the other a Sony glass tube tv via component analog. The menus
look fine on either set. I can detect a little flickering between the
edges of the menu selections, but certainly nothing illegible.

AFAIK, the only distros backporting btrfs fixes are rhel6 beta and fedora 13.

James, do you have another machine you can try to log in with? I have
found that sometimes a "locked up" box can be reached through ssh.

I agree with what Tom suggested. If you can ssh in, you can at least do
a proper shutdown.

The next thing I would try is to boot into memtest86 which is usually in
the grub menu, or you can boot off a sysrescueCD disk. The one time I
had a series of hard lockups it was due to a bad memory stick.
