That might be a good idea, IF 10.4 used xorg.conf but it doesn't.

For 10.04 you need to write udev rules for that, see
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Input>

Give it up Karl. Start a blog. Do something, but *please* stop polluting

this list with your insistent ramblings about your issues with your
system. If you have a _valid_ problem post with the details like
everyone else.

I'd recommend that you file a bug report but most of your past "reports"

tend to pollute launchpad as well.

Look at what you've written in just the past few days... one moment you
praise 10.04, the next you blame 10.04. The same as you have done for
just about every other Ubuntu version since joining this list. I hate to

say it & I'm pretty tolerant about most things, but if you keep this up
I'd vote to send you back to the moderators bin.

Looks like you already have the choice between TeX and FOP:


$ apt-cache show xmlto|grep ^Recommends
Recommends: libpaper-utils, dblatex | fop

So if you have FOP installed the TeX stuff shouldn't get installed.

But I've gotta get out of Gentoo one way or another...

This means that ubuntu does not have the perfect client application for the
Samba PDC. Where as Windows works perfectly as client to samba ??

What a BRILLIANT adaptation/transformation of Ubuntu Lucid (10.04)!

This is how I always imagined Linux to look when done professionally
(with no offence to current developers). The desktop of gold and melted

chocolate, with a gold rotating arrow head for the cursor, is stunning
(and you can change the wallpaper if you want).

Many thanks, Graham Todd, for mentioning this in one of your messages
(in a totally unrelated thread :-) ).


OK, for some this may be a just a bit "over the top" but for myself - I
am enjoying it and am enjoying playing around with it. I also know a few
people who would just LOVE this version.

Some nice things to start with:


Ubuntu Tweak is installed by default;

WINE is installed by default;

vlc, xine and amarok are installed by default, but not kaffeine;

the medibuntu source is in the repo sources and all you need to do is to

'activate' it - no need to go chasing this in Ubuntu wiki or wherever;

gimp is installed by default;

the list can go on.......


However, nothing is perfect.....

When you insert the DVD (2.4GB) it will boot into LIVE mode even though

- at least with me - it gives the option to Install from DVD it simply
boots into Live mode. That's OK but just something to watch for.

During the installation stage it retains the most annoying statement in

Ubuntu that "the installation will finish shortly", or words to this
effect, but it doesn't and takes quite a while to install - it took
overall an hour last night to install. I suspect that the reason for

this is that even though your language may be, say, English, the install
process downloads the language packs for all sorts of unwanted languages
(and then also tries to upgrade them!) like, for me Spanish, German,

and, would you believe, Xhosa :-) . On top of this, the progress bar
slowly progresses from 0% to 100%.....but then keeps going until, I
think, it reaches 180% :-) .

Just one other thing to bear in mind. Installing the nVidia "proppa"

video driver has a repurcussion: the golden rotating arrow-cursor turns
into an ugly duckling of a big black arrow head :-( (and the splash
screen on boot goes into EGA mode). Way out of getting the gold arrow
back (but not the splash screen on boot) is to deselect Visual Effects

in Appearance - that is, you lose the ability to use Compiz. I believe
that this hassle is being looked at as the emphasis was to get this UE
working for ATI/Radeon.

Oh, yes: the Adobe Flash plugin for Firefox is not installed by default

so you need to install it (from Synaptic Package Manager for example).

After playing around for a bit longer on my test-bed I think I will
switch my main system over to Ultimate Edition - it's so nice to look at

:-) .

As Graham advised, Ultimate Edition can be downloaded from

http://ultimateedition.info/ultimate-edition/ultimate-edition-2-6/


a 2.4GB download of a DVD iso.
