    Damn, if i can't fix this Ubuntu thing can anyone recommend another distro? Preferably not Arch or anything, I'm not in the mood for that. I just want something that works.

    Yes, definitely Fedora. I liked it more than Ubuntu.

    I dropped Fedora because of SELinux. You should take that into consideration.

    I'm pretty sure you can disable it, and it's not that annoying.

    I find it more than just annoying, and while I realize I can disable it, I'm not much for a system where I have to take away stuff just to use it. Mind you, Fedora is a great system, and most of the packages are usually pretty up to date.

    Words cannot even describe this. Why haven't you installed a god damn XFCE/LXDE/KDE spin of Fedora? Gnome 3 is pure shit. You should really take a good look at the previous pages.

    Or gnome-fallback if you REALLY have to use some sort of Gnome.

    I'm pretty sure it has to do with your Xorg drivers. You'll have to search around since it's been a long time since I had a problem like this.

    Found out I can install linux on my wii, going to do that.
    I have a choice of Debian, Arch, or Gentoo.
    Thinking about debian, I already have Arch on my laptop and gentoo looks iffy.

    Archbang is fucking great.

    Speaking of which, can anyone help me figure out how to remove an application from the menu that no longer exists? It sucks having an empty application entry in an otherwise clean menu.

    It's openbox, right? In that case, edit the menu.xml file to get rid of the launcher for that application.

    Yeah, it's openbox. I solved the problem by removing the application in question (which sucked because it was some CrossOver crap and I had to fight to get the uninstaller to work), though I never learned how to just manually remove the application from the "Applications" list.

    I tried editing menu.xml but it seems to just get its application list from something because the actual launchers weren't listed in menu.xml itself.

    Check /usr/share/applications and /usr/local/share/applications if they exist and delete the offending program shortcut.

    While I'm no stranger to Linux, I've found myself utterly stumped as to how to reset Empathy. I now have a "phantom" unread message after I blocked a spammer, and I don't have a clue as to how to either get the notification off, or reset Empathy by deleting its settings directory (since I can't find it anywhere in my /home). Anyone know how to help with this?





    EDIT: Never mind! All it needed was to be reset by restarting the computer. Man, makes me feel dumb.

    It makes me wonder why is Unity that static compared to other DEs, when you remove the gnome-icons or you do something related to the files that the DE uses, it changes accordingly to that, even to rm -rf.

    hey guys i have a small problem. right now the user menu im creating, the sub menus are not "one per row", instead, they are like 2 per row. any idea how to make them 1 per row?



    My code is:
    #!/bin/bash

    clear

    echo "Welcome to the Main Menu. Please select any Option below."

    echo ""
    echo ""
    echo ""

    OPTIONS="User_Menu Disk_Quota_Menu Backup_Menu Network_Menu NFS_Menu"

    select CHOICE in $OPTIONS; do
    echo ""
    echo ""
    if [ "$CHOICE" == "User_Menu" ]; then
    ./UserMenu.sh

    elif [ "$CHOICE" == "Disk_Quota_Menu" ]; then
    ./DiskQuotaMenu.sh


    elif [ "$CHOICE" == "Backup_Menu" ]; then
    ./BackupMenu.sh


    elif [ "$CHOICE" == "Network_Menu" ]; then
    ./NetworkMenu.sh


    elif [ "$CHOICE" == "NFS_Menu" ]; then
    ./NFSMenu.sh

    else

    echo ""
    echo ""
    echo "Bad Option. Please choose a number from 1 to 5 ."; echo

    fi
    done


    So i want to make it like

    1) User Menu
    2) Disk Quota Menu
    3) Backup Menu
    4) Network Menu.
    5) NFS Menu

    Instead of

    1) User Menu 3) Backup Menu 5) NFS Menu
    2) Disk Quota Menu 4)Network Menu

    Any ideas?

    Thanks a lot.

    Alright, firstly, I'm stumped as to where to put this Android related post, because the Android thread in the Google subforum doesn't look very technical and the fact that Android is Linux based. I'll just ask here.

    My LG-P690 running Android 2.3.4 thinks it's funny to fuck up the contacts, resulting in a crash of android.process.acore each time I open the contacts list. The only way to fix it is by doing a factory reset + SD card erase. I never installed non-market apps.

    Today I downloaded an app (Touchpal Contacts) which, hopefully, won't fuck me up as badly. Today was the 2nd or third time my contacts fucked up.

    I've also got another problem. I can't install any custom ROMs (the phone is already rooted) because, from what I've seen, some LG DRM will do a factory reset each time ROM Manager by Clockwork tries to fiddle with ROM-based stuff.

    Now, for the main questions: What is causing the android.process.acore crash? Is there a permanent solution to it? How do I remove the LG DRM? Is it safe to do it without bricking my device? If I do brick the device, can I install a Linux distribution on it even if it has only 160 MB of internal storage?

    And before you ask, yes, I did Google it first.

    Use printf instead, and follow the C printf standard. Should work just fine.

    Funny enough, such questions DOES belong in the Android thread in the Google subforum.
    Or ask on XDA developers

    Alright so I have recently come into possession of an older laptop and I want to install a Linux distro on it, partially because the people that gave it to me wiped it clean, partially because it'd be a nice learning experience.

    I have never installed Linux or used much of any Linux OS. What's a fairly standard distro that will work on an older computer, and what's the easiest way to get it installed?
