Anyone knows if there is anywhere a list of all non-free software included in Ubuntu, preferably the newest Edgy release?
The idea is to just make a simple script that will remove all non-free software from Edgy making it a fully Free Software installation, even though the user would still have to watch not to install anything non-free from repos. If you want a fully free Ubuntu you can consider trying gNewSense (personally I think they could use a better name, which I told them).
I've decided to upgrade to Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy RC1 even though the release is soon. The difference between RC and final is usually minimal, and since final will be only a dist-upgrade away, it can't hurt, right?
I am encountering serious problems trying to use my computer.
I have a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo D 7830 laptop (P4 2.4GHz, 500 Mo RAM, Ati Radeon 9600) running Ubuntu Dapper.
I have used Ubuntu (5.4 and 6.6) for six months now and never had any serious problem. All my hardware is properly supported.
I'm thinking about installing Enlightenment DR17 on my new Ubuntu Dapper and there seem to be a few options. I can download the packages from here and install manually, add a repository like described here or use some kind of a third party installer.
I messed up my sound drivers (or something related) when cleaning up a couple of packages.
Seems like I was wrong. Now the sound doesn't work and the sound icon in the upper-right corner shows there's no sound. When I click that icon it says that I'm either without GStreamer plugin or sound driver. I'm not sure which, but I guess GStreamer.
What file can I edit, or gconf key, so that when I insert a USB memory stick drive, it loads Thunar instead of Nautilus? I use Thunar now instead of Nautilus because it's zippier. (BTW, I even use it on my fast machine at the office too.)
