Xubuntu 11.10 is using (like Ubuntu 11.10) LightDM. But when i install Simple LightDM Manager, it doesn't work under Xubuntu 11.10. Does anyone why? Many thanks!

Kdenlive is very well known for being unstable, crashing and being buggy. A good replacement which has a similar look-and-feel as Kdenlive is Openshot. Since Kdenlive and Openshot are more aiming on simple and easy video-editing, you won't come across many difficulties when using Openshot.

Here's a list of all video-editing program's for Linux:

Hmm... Alpha releases never tend to be stable
Correct. If you want a stable version, just wait till april. Then you can get the final release.

So no point downloading and chucking it in a VM. Anything else interesting happen?

This posting:

says the EDUP  EP-N8508 Micro Wireless Adapter (802.11n) worked "out of the box" in 11.10 .. can't say how well it would work in 10.04 though.

Your best bet would probably be to find a model that suits your needs, then check the Ubuntu forums for known issues .. though "most" USB adapters can be made to work, just a matter of how much work is involved.

Need post! But the proiblem is, I live in The Netherlands and some of the Wifi adaptors advised can't be bought in Holland. Even this EDUP can't be bought....

But i'll keep searching!

Printers and Scanners / Re: HPLIP Toolbox

Ofcourse. But my point is that most issues regarding HPLIP will be solved by manually (custom) install the HPLIP driver which has the benefit that, at a certoint point during the installation, asks the user if it should remove any older/conflicting versions/packages. And it also checks for missing dependencies which can be installed during the installation procedure!

Doing this solves a lot of issues is my experience. And i know that HPLIP Toolbox will be removed. One reason is that it could conflict with some newer packages which are being installed. Afterwards it's easy to re-install the HPLIP toolbox.

On my system, i have the HPLIP toolbox icon in the taskbar for quick access. The topic starter might try this also.

I need an USB adaptor which supports 802.11-n protocoll.

When you have a device and you don't know if it is supported or not, check this webiste:

This site shows you which Kodak printers are supported:

Why not getting the latest HPLIP driver from the source directly??? Go to and get the latest version of HPLIP from there.

If you do a custom installation, at a certain moment you will be asked if any previous versions of HPLIP should be removed. Answer with Y (Yes). Any missing dependencies will also be detected and installed during the installation.

This always helped me and others solving issues with HP printers and HPLIP and HPLIP Toolbox issues.

Ubuntu / Re: Lost WiFi/Network applet

If may give yoiu some advice:

Ditch the standard gnome network applet and install Wicd.

Wicd providses you with a bit more info regarding wifi connections and it works better than the standard network applet!

Don't make the same mistake i did, first install wicd and then remove the standard network applet  ;)

Ubuntu / Re: Problem with update manager......

The answer to your problem can be found in the error message itself:

".....The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY AAFF4A5B336064 B5....."

The solution is to add the missing authentication key, or public key, to your Software sources. This can be done by doing the following:

Adding authentication key:
Code: [Select]
wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Adding repository:
Code: [Select]
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb stable non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera.list' 

Installing Opera:
Code: [Select]
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install opera

You can copy/paste these commands in a terminal.

But why not downloading directly from the website itself ? Then you don't have these kind of issues.

Ubuntu / Wifi adaptor
« on: February 01, 2012, 08:15:28 am »
Hi everybody,

I'm looking for a wifi adaptor which works out-of-the-box with Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS and in the nearby future with Xubuntu 11.10. Can anybody recommend me a good wifi adaptor?

Many thanks in advance!
