Looks like some discussions are underway already on the #! forums about replacing it, they are looking for developer volunteers currently, possibly a Debian Maintainer to sponsor them.

Hi

Thanks for that I will keep that in mind, the software that I had installed was Banshee this is in Software Centre but not the latest version so I upgrade to the latest issue.

The Cockney Mackem!

Ubuntu (and Debian) work on a nothing-but-bugfix update system between releases. The only time you'll get full software upgrades, and therefore new features, is when you upgrade (so from 10.04 to 10.10). Apart from that, all the updates are only security and bugfixes. That way, we can hopefully avoid introducing any new bugs. If you want to live on the edge, there are software distributions that let you do that (Arch for example, or Debian Unstable), but Ubuntu/Debian stable are better for productivity ;)

Also, something to note, it's always worth downloading software from known, trusted repositories. If you download a random .deb file from a random site and install it, you have no guarantee on what it is doing, and it may be nefarious. If you can,*always* use synaptic/Software Centre over downloading .debs.

General Help & Advice / Re: Printing using Linux

Someone may have said this before, but, before you buy printers, it's always worth checking them out on this site:
http://www.openprinting.org/printers

Though, most HP's do work on both Linux out-of-the-box :)

From that error message, it looks like the system is looking for a file, .Xmodmap, and not finding it. Can you run the following command, and copy the results here?
Code: [Select]
ls -lah /home/makin/.Xmodmap

General Discussion / The Guardian != Neutral
« on: October 08, 2010, 10:13:10 pm »
Nice to see the Guardian being impartial:
http://goo.gl/wOZH

I like the guardian's style of writing. I read their paper, visit their website, and use their iPhone app.

Today, I saw this advert: http://goo.gl/wOZH

The feature they're making the most of is a rip-off adaptation of a feature Firefox has had since version 1 (not mentioned); won't work on Linux or Macs machines (not mentioned) and the verbiage seems to be clear-cut marketing speech with no mention of any alternatives or downsides.

In the article they've mentioned that Internet Explorer has been the Market Leader since it's launch. What they didn't mention, is the reason it became the market leader. Microsoft abused it's monopoly position, as confirmed here:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/8415902.stm

Why not a guardian article, you may ask? Perhaps the tone of this blog would give you a hint, with the negativity detectable in the tone of the author:

General Help & Advice / Re: Email not working on alias domains
« on: October 08, 2010, 03:42:10 pm »
hello,

You should look for an option to 'alias' or 'forward' email sent to the other domains to the primary domain. Most email system control panels will let you pass email on.

Hi Badger. You should probably check, it looks like you've got your caps lock stuck on :)

Do you know the model number?

Ubuntu / Re: OpenVPN

try doing an 'ifconfig', we'll be able to tell if the VPN connection has loaded correctly. Also, do you want to do an ls in /etc/openvpn/ ?
