comment Set Idle Time in Ubuntu 12.04 Server
Thanks for the hints. I would have assumed that the checks done by the gnome powersaving tool would be "available" somewhere. Seems a little unnecessary to roll your own scripts when there are standard programs that do the same thing.

I am running the "server" version of Ubuntu which does not have a GUI/Gnome.

comment Set Idle Time in Ubuntu 12.04 Server
My server is not always in use. I would like it to suspend when it is idle. I will send it a wake-on-lan when I need to wake it up.

comment Run iTunes without virtualizing Windows?
I'd be careful updating firmware on the iPhone through VBox. I did that a while back and it failed, bricking the phone. I had to redo it from a Windows box.

Is there a tool that ties all these together?

comment I have problems installing Ubuntu 10.04
Could it be a driver issue? As in a driver that works in 9.10 but has a bug in 10.04.

comment How can I create a software RAID drive and install Ubuntu Desktop on that drive?
There seemed to be some problems with GRUB and software RAID. Workarounds are documented here -> help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID.

Doesn't seem to work for me. I'm running 2.6.32-24-generic #38-Ubuntu x86_64 GNU/Linux, Nautilus 2.30.1

Using / does not seem to work with Lucid. I have to use CTRL+L.

always_use_location_entry is unchecked. I'm talking about then I have the pathbar, but want to temporarily switch to the addressbar (to copy a path etc) and then switch back to the pathbar.

comment Does Ubuntu have support for the TRIM command for use with SSD?
I think the performance would be restored to the same (if not close to) the factory defaults. Have a look here for an explanation -> anandtech.com/show/2738/10

comment Does Ubuntu have support for the TRIM command for use with SSD?
I thought you still had to use tools which "sent" the TRIM command to the SDD. It's good if it works as you specify. :) This Anandtech article -> (anandtech.com/show/2738/10) specifies that for TRIM to work, both the OS and the SSD need TRIM support. I guess my question is about the OS/Linux support for TRIM when used with TRIM-aware SSD drives.

comment Where can I find the Brother HL-2170W 64-bit printer driver?
I've got it configured through Ubuntu by installing the printer from the PPD file from Brother -> Brother-HL-2170W-pxlmono.ppd, for network printing. Printing anything takes around 1-3 minutes, even for basic printing. I thought this was a driver issue and wanted to get the correct driver from Brother - which would hopefully solve the slow printing problem.
