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 ...

Switching between Unity and your (preserved) GNOME session will be as simple as logging out, choosing "Ubuntu Classic Desktop" at the login screen, and logging in again.

According to this documentation, the syntax in /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf is different than what I'd read elsewhere. It should be: [main] plugins=ifupdown,keyfile [ifupdown] managed=false [keyfile] unmanaged-devices=mac:00:19:e0:57:86:af This configuration makes NetworkManager oblivious to the existence of my wireless card, but still ...

You can install it with these commands. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cinnamon After installing you need to select it at the login screen to use it. Running Cinnamon on Lubuntu defeats the purpose of ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Try this: Install xdotool (a program that allows you to simulate X11 keyboard/mouse input). Run ccsm (the CompizConfig Settings Manager). Activate the Commands plugin (probably will crash Unity, do Ctrl + Alt + F1, log in, run unity --replace, press Ctrl + Alt + F7). In the Commands tab, enter the following command: xdotool key super In the Edge ...

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 ...

No, this can't be done. Your router is a completely separate device. You'd have to have the tcpdump program, or similar, actually running on the router. There are plenty of software router implementations, some of which may do this for you already. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_router_or_firewall_distributions Or, you may have a router that ...

Use the following /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf: [main] plugins=ifupdown,keyfile [ifupdown] managed=false This way your interfaces from /etc/network/interfaces will be unmanaged by Network Manager, i.e. it will not try to do anything with them.

This isn't the editor's fault. You are referring to "sub-pixel smoothing". This is what Ubuntu (and OSX) use to make fonts less blocky. Of course you can always turn it of by going into the Gnome2 appearance settings under the font tab. Just select the radio button next to the font "look" you like best.

You can use ifconfig to check whether a network interface (e.g., the localhost interface (lo)) is enabled or not. You can use sudo ifconfig lo up to enable the localhost interface.

Lubuntu is Ubuntu with the LXDE desktop environment instead of GNOME/Unity.

How to rename Network interfaces: Here is one solution, on how to rename the interface. Most likely, there was something which went wrong under the setup of the device, so, let's roll on with it: Open the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules And look for "rename3" in it. You will find this: NAME="rename3" on a pretty long line, so i ...

You don't need to use any specific toolkit to interface with Unity, all of it's APIs are available via GObject Introspection. This means you can use them with multiple languages and multiple toolkits. You are free to use Gtk or Qt, C/C++ or Python, or any other combination of language and toolkit you prefer. You can see the Unity APIs here: ...
