Sound Solutions for Ubuntu Hardy,Intrepid and Jaunty Users

Posted 03-16-2009 at 02:15 AM by sridhar11

If you have just upgraded to or installed Hardy or Intrepid or Jaunty and you have some sound somewhere, but not everywhere for everything, this is a fast way to get all the missing stuff you need and give you some tools to figure out what is going on. If you hear the startup sound but nothing else, or if some applications work and others don’t, this is for you. If you have no sound at all, there is a link at the end of this post for more extensive troubleshooting help but you should try this...

Epiphany better than Firefox?

Linux - by kids and for kids. The small thing.

The upgrade to KDE 4.2.1 and XFCE 4.6, being very successful all by itself, made me sure that Linux still is, well, childish.

I upgraded to KDE 4.2.1 and XFCE 4.6 in Slackware current. KDE got some fixes (as promised) and XFCE got some polish (all by surprise). The net result is that I spent almost a whole day in a vicious circle making configuration changes to KDE, switching to XFCE, making configuration changes there, and going back to KDE until I was reasonably sure that at this time I like XFCE better. Meanwhile I got errors that are a good reason to write what I always wanted to cry about.

In order...
