Ubuntu 8.1 Is Terrible


sound on mozilla wont work
and its annoying
it took forever to get the internet working again
and i want to down grade back to the old ubuntu
when i click places/home folder or any other location under places it says "No application is registered as handling this file" and it doesnt make sense


and i need sound on mozilla to work.

i hate the new ubuntu
and im fed up

I had audio problems in both 8.04 and 8.10 because of pulseaudio.

go to System>Preferences>Session
and then uncheck PulseAudio (There are probably other things in here you don't need either)

then log out and log back in

Since when does mozilla have sound ? It's a web browser

Are you referring to the flash plugin maybe ?

and it's 8.10 not 8.1

just backup your home dir and reinstall something else.

then learn how to do it. seriously, if you don't know how to back up files, you have no business upgrading and installing a new OS every 6 months.

This is for an older version but should work for you: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-303028.html It fixed problems I was having in an entirely different distro some time ago.
