Ubuntu 9.1 on an ACER Aspire one. Many thanks

I just loaded Ubuntu 9.1 lite on to an Acer Aspire One and what a pleasure, all worked well all runs fast and clean. I even got a sierra 306 broadband wireless card up and running. Thanks to everyone that make this so easy. the only issue is that only one of the SD ports is viewable but hopefully a little digging on this site will have that up and running in no time.

Fantastic.

Cinecutie - New Video editor and composer for Linux

After lot of time spent to learn the cinelerra code, I want to move an other step on the opensource contribute. I’m started from tangolerra project made by Franco Iacomella and after an hard job with svg I made my personal mochup of Cinelerra called Cutiehd. But when I started to work on the mochup of Cinelerra 2.1cv I tryed to enable again the support of font antialias (xft), write a draft of Utf-8 support, rewrite some parts of titler code and adapt the svg plugin from the Cinelerrasv by “Simeon Völkel”. I know that these features can generate instability, so I decided to make a new package with it’s name and icon called Cinecutie, that can be consider more as “mochup” than a real “fork”. In order to make possible the installation with cinelerra I had to rename not only name but also libraries and settings dir (from ~/.bcast to ~/.ccutie).

Problem with using Ubuntu 9.10

I have loaded Ubuntu 9.10 as logical drive extension to my existing Windows 7. The Linux Ext 3 is in a partition 283.6 GB in size and occupies just 6.6 GB. The Linux Swap is 7kB in a partition of 9.3 GB in size.

When I boot up, the Grub shell menu is offered, I select the first Ubuntu option and it boots up OK. I then try and move the cursor, but after a short time period it just freezes.

Ubuntu 9.10 32/64bit and Nvidia Driver on HP Pavilion with 8400M

I've just installed my laptop with a fresh Ubuntu 9.10. I've tried both 32bit and 64bit.

Just after the install, i log in, take a system update (about 120Mb), and reboot. Then i go system -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers, and install the Nvidia driver package. I've tried both the 173/185, and I've also downloaded and installed the newest 190 driver from the Nvidia site.

The problem with the 173 is that i get the log on sound, but Zero image. I get the terminal if i go ALT+CTRL+F1, no problem.

185 - I get the log on sound, and a torn image with white stripes. Nothing that i can watch and do something with, but just a fuzzy screen. I get the terminal, no problem.

190 - Same as the 185.

I've clean installed 6 times now, and it will not work. The only way to get the system ut again is to enter /etc/X11/xorg.conf and switch the driver from "nvidia" to "nv".

any ideas? I really want my 3d and my visual effects :)

I need to break free of Windows XP/Vista/7 grip as as much I can.
Out of Box Ubuntu only does so much toward this end.
