cannot able to play games

i m not able to play counter strike on my ubuntu 9.10........not only cs but other games are also not running.

i have graphics card of ATI 512MB

please tell me what to do


Just installed ubuntu. I cannot configure my monitor correctly. everything is very large and I can only see what would be the upper right of all windows. When I try to change this in 'system' --> display, i get this message: 'It appears your doesnt support the necessary extensions to use this tool.Do you want to use your graphics driver vendor's tool instead?' If I say yes it opens the NVIDIA X Server Settings. In there under X Server Display Configuration under 'layout' it says '(hidden because screen height is under 600 pixels)'. I cant change the resolution to anything over 640x480. Any Suggestions?? Thank You

iPhone Tethering on Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic)

This tutorial is written for those who are not familiar with Ubuntu/Linux and is very detailed. If you are experienced feel free to just grab what you need from it.If you’re like me you have an iPhone and a portable computer running Ubuntu and you would like to have mobile internet without paying for an extra data plan from
your carrier. Thanks to a few devoted individuals tethering the iPhone to Ubuntu is simple. The only prerequisite is that you must have an iPhone 3G or 3GS running OS 3.0 or higher. If you’re running 3.0 then you can do this without jail breaking your phone by installing a modified carrier profile. However, if you’re on OS 3.1+ then you will need to jail break your phone to install the modified carrier profile.

Step By Step Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) LAMP Server Setup

In around 15 minutes, the time it takes to install Ubuntu Server Edition, you can have a LAMP (Linux, Apache,MySQL and PHP) server up and ready to go. This feature, exclusive to Ubuntu Server Edition, is available at the time of installation.The LAMP option means you don’t have to install and integrate each of the four separate LAMP components, a process which can take hours and requires someone who is skilled in the installation and configuration of the individual applications.
