Moving ubuntu minimize, maximize, & close buttons on Ubuntu 10.04

Posted 05-15-2010 at 10:04 AM by jkzfixme

As I drink my scotch after a long day of golfing I ponder life's great philosophical questions, such as the direction that Linux is heading, and if the wife is going to yell at me for that new scotch stain on the couch. Are we men, or are we mac users ? I mean seriously, whats with the buttons on the left ? Is it some insidious plot to ruin my optimistic attitude in life, like the KFC Double Down ?

Migrating from WinXP to Ubuntu 9.10

Posted 03-01-2010 at 01:08 PM by SrDorothy

I have fixed this several times on other boxes,...

*Disclaimer: the following narration is for entertainment purposes only and does not necessarily reflect any real scenarios...or does it?

Let's follow a seemingly "simple" task for an average Linux user:

Upgrade Ubuntu from Jaunty to Karmic

Posted 10-31-2009 at 10:55 PM by Sonneteer
Tags ubuntu, upgrade

My first attempt to upgrade to Karmic was met with an error about ubuntu-minimal missing. The problem being the mirror I had selected was not synced with the new distro yet. (The "Select Best Server" option probably thought it was a good mirror precisely because nobody was downloading thousands of packages from it yet) So after switching to a different mirror, the upgrade went pretty smoothly.

In addition to the improvements one can find on many another review, a few things...
