Greetings to all. I love Linux, no more Redmond on my Acer extenda 5420 laptop. All is great except my inability to connect via wi-fi. The internal "card" is a Broadcom b43 series. I am willing to do an end run by using a PCMCIA card if anyone can suggest one that would work "out of the box." Any help is appreciated. Thanks everyone. Hank
As someone that loves music, listens constantly and is always adding to my collection by purchasing and then ripping CDs, a decent tag editor is an essential tool. I’ve been using Linux for the past seven years or so and the only drawback that I was constantly faced with was the lack of a great audio tag editor - basically a Linux based equivalent to mp3tag.
I need some help.

Still [not sure where to post this and] working on getting this scanner to work in Ubuntu but now 10.10. I upgraded my 9.04 via internet to 10.10 a few days ago. I've had the drivers and supporting files installed for a while (9.04) yet Xsane gives me the message that no device available supported devices are busy. I've even removed xsane to see if sane might do the job. Yea sane and xsane are both in there. I recently did a lsusb command and got this response in brackets below:

Using Ubuntu 10.04.1 with Scribus (stable) loaded from the Software Centre I have a problem. the text box doesn't work. I create a text box, click on the "Edit Contents of Frame" icon and get a cursor in the text box but all I can type in are figures. In just doesn't type letters. Obviously this is not a lot of use for a publisher programme. Is this a known bug and can it be fixed? if not anyone recommend a publishing programme that works in Ubuntu?
I have installed 10.04 release. In nautilus when folder visualization is in list mode, list's cells background color change randomly as I pass the mouse over them. Same effect I see using gedit.
In previous version 9.10 on the same machine all was working fine.
Can some body help me, please?
NOTE. My graphic card is a S3 ProSavage KM133 and the mouse is a simple USB mouse "Trust" on a 1.1 usb port.
Thank you in advance.

I've just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 and there seems to be a problem with "Flashplugin-nonfree". I'm being told to "re-install" it before removing but nothing seems to work & just going round in circles, I tried using the "Broken" filter - Firefox runs but does not appear to be connecting to the net where other programs are. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
