The answer depends heavily on 3 major factors contributing to the feeling of "slow" or better yet, less FPS: Version of Ubuntu (Updated, not just left as it came when it was released) Video card (Ati, Intel, Nvidia) Driver version (Proprietary, Open Source, Actual Version) I'll explain each point: Version of Ubuntu For the version of Ubuntu, it is ...

It sounds like your PC did not have the proper hardware (or hardware drivers) to run the full 3D Unity experience. There are two things you could try to fix this: Upgrade to 11.10. In 11.10 there is a 2D fallback version of Unity that looks and behaves like the 3D version, but does not require hardware acceleration. Try seeing if there is a proprietary ...

According to Gnome Wiki, the syntax in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf (in older versions it was /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf) is different than what I'd read Arch Linux Wiki. It should be: [main] plugins=ifupdown,keyfile [ifupdown] managed=false [keyfile] unmanaged-devices=mac:00:19:e0:57:86:af This configuration makes ...

The IPv6 address shown is link-local - this means that it is not publically accessible outside of your LAN, but is an automatic address assigned for communicating within your local network. For people to be able to access your computer via IPv6, there would need to be a public address on the interface & for it to be routed.

I think you only need one default gateway. You have set up 3: gateway 172.19.20.185, gateway 172.18.182.1 and up route add default gw 172.18.182.1 dev eth1. Try the following interfaces file: auto eth0 eth1 iface eth0 inet static address 172.19.20.186 netmask 255.255.255.252 iface eth1 inet static address 172.18.182.55 netmask 255.255.254.0 ...

Well the problem is not in the network card because VMware always enables promiscuous mode for virtual interface. But the problem is within the configuration. It is not enough to enable promiscuous mode in the interface file. I had to add this line: ifconfig eth1 up ifconfig eth1 promisc in the /etc/rc.local file because when i restart the network ...

It is possible. Please do: gksudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules Swap eth0 and eth1. Proofread carefully, save and close gedit. Use any other text editor if you don't have gedit. Reboot immediately and you should be all set.

You can query sysfs to tell you this information. To tell which driver a network interface is using: ls -l /sys/class/net/<devname>/device/driver ... where <devname> is something like eth0. This driver directory will be a symlink to the driver node in sysfs. To get the name of the module that provides that driver: ls -l ...

Your ip should be on the br0, eth0 won't have an ip. Something like this : # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet manual auto br0 ...

IPv6 addresses are shown because IPv6 is enabled on network interfaces by default. The only way this would matter (I believe) is if the network you were connected to supported IPv6. I don't believe that Ubuntu would create a IPv6 tunnel to anything, it just leaves the protocol active on that interface. If IPv6 is available on your network, and the IPv6 side ...

The gconf key is /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons. Note: I don't particularly endorse setting it to "True" in the long run. See Andreas Nilsson's post and the discussion in the related bug for the rationale behind setting it to "False" by default.

To find the model of your wireless card: lspci -nn | grep 0280 The pipe symbol | is on the right side of my keyboard on the same key with backslash. We added -nn because we want numerical details, particularly the pci.id, that may help diagnose a problem. 0280 is the class used by lspci for wireless devices: for example: 03:00.0 Network controller ...

You need to modify the udev rule for the network interface to change the name. As seen in the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file: SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth1"' the name has been changed to eth1. To change the name of the ...

Edit /etc/network/interfaces to have a section like this: iface br0 inet static bridge_ports eth0 eth1 address 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 (This is assuming you are using 192.168.0.x addressses for you dhcp server.) Then you just use br0 instead of eth0 or eth1 when you are doing your configuration file. With this method, you don't need ...

It's entirely handled through the routing tables. It's pretty easy to try out in a virtual machine, if you want to have fun. I don't take responsibility for anything that might happen on the machine where you try this. First let's change the netmask of lo to 255.255.0.0: sudo ip addr del 127.0.0.1/8 dev lo; sudo ip addr add 127.0.0.1/16 dev lo Now let's ...

Not the clean solution you're looking for, but you could create an icon full of transparency. It would accomplish the goal of consistent layout/indentation. Using transparency would also make it portable across themes.
