Is this happening only to me or have others noticed that the new Firefox 2.0 on Ubuntu Edgy is just unbearably slow when opening a multitude of tabs?

It actually brings my system to a crawl rendering it almost completely unusable until it is, ages later, done with whatever it is doing (e.g. opening a tenth tab or so).

how to edit kernal

I want to know how to edit ubuntu,s kernal to change its desktop for multi desktop.

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? Smiling

Hello all,

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.)

I have Ubuntu Breezy.

Hi, I'm new to the forum and Ubuntu.

Read a lot on the web about installing my wireless card.

Works fine on the Win2000 side of the dual boot on my Dell Latitude.

Got driver from windows install disk for the Ubuntu side.

I strongly believe that the latest PostgreSQL security patch that I have installed from Ubuntu has slowed down PostgreSQL. It now takes an extra half-second to a second to display a result!

The patch was to block remote SQL injection or something like that, I think.
