Do you have compiz enabled?

Try disabling it under appearance - visual effects.

If it doesn't freeze after disabling compiz, re-enable it and install
ccsm and check the general tab for 2 settings:

Unredirect Fullscreen Windows
Force Independent output painting

Make sure they're unchecked.

These 2 settings were hanging my T61 all the time...

I installed Skype, deb for version 8.04 on my 8.10 system. It
complains about "Problem with Audio Playback" when I try to call.

Thanks,
Bob

Hi Bob,
Go to Skype Preferences, and change in Sound device from "Auto" to
manual selection.

Hi Brian,

Yep my English is not quite perfect :-( I mean a copier, that mean a big
printer where people can copy directly some documents. But of course
this copier will need fax/scan functionality.
I will have a look at those MFC printer from HP (no way Lexmark).

Thanks

Hello Everyone,

I got this tiny issue on my Dell XPS, I run a dual boot Windows Vista and
Ubuntu 8.04.2 on this laptop it has been working since several days before
but today I found out that I am not able to boot Vista anymore I got the *Error
13: Invalid or Unsupported Executable Format message *everytime I try to
boot, I actually did a search and I was able to find some info about
it hereand I tried
changing the menu.lst but without any change or progress, still
says Error 13, I wonder if anyone could guide me resolving this.

TIA

## default num
# Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0,
and
# the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
#
# You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default
entry
# is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.
# WARNING: If you are using dmraid do not use 'savedefault' or your
# array will desync and will not let you boot your system.
default 0

## timeout sec
# Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default
