comment Change swap size after upgrade
Just a small thing but e2resize doesn't seem to exist for 12.10. Do you mean resize2fs ?

comment Set web proxy using pac-file-url in lubuntu
It won't let me fix the answer it seems. The last comma in the proxyConfig example should be removed.

The problem was the final comma. I removed it and it all works now. Thanks!

comment Set web proxy using pac-file-url in lubuntu
Thanks for this. This is for chromium for my home PC. The dhcp server is just on my home router so I am not explicitly running dhcpd. Similarly for DNS, unless there is way to do this is in a normal home setup. Also, I am not sure lxproxy exists for 12.10 does it? See launchpad.net/~lubuntu-desktop/+archive/ppa/… .

comment chromium + web proxy
Also, is there an extension that can you let you turn the web proxy on and off or do you really need to restart chromium and run it using a different command line to do this?

comment chromium + web proxy
I got chromium-browser --proxy-server=host:port:8080 to work. However it uses the proxy for all web pages. In firefox it only uses it for the ones it is needed for which is what I would like it to do. Is this possible in chromium? I think this is what the autoconfigure script does in firefox.

comment How to set chromium to open word documents with libreoffice?
That's great, thanks. Is this long command line really the recommended way to change application preferences for chromium?

comment How to update sensors info
OK. I actually have that dvd in my hand currently but as you say, it's not obvious what to do with it in linux.

comment How to update sensors info
Thanks. Even with the motherboard manual europe.asrock.com/manual/880GM-LE%20FX.pdf it's not at all obvious to me how to work out what temp1, temp2 and temp3 are. In particular, the motherboard manual implies it has only two temperature sensors it seems! lm-sensors.org/wiki/VoltageLabelsAndScaling may be useful for the voltage part...

comment How to update sensors info
It would be nice to have names for temp1, temp2, temp3 and fan2 . In fact fan2 is my CPU fan but I don't know what the temp measurements are. Also there are ALARMs for in1, in4,in5,in6 and Vbat (I don't know what they mean) which I am assuming are mistakes in some config file.

comment microcode errors after upgrade
You are quite right. sudo apt-get install amd64-microcode fixed it. If you put that as an answer I will accept it.

@gertvdijk I am not sure as that seems to have been a fatal problem whereas my system seems to be working ok.

Should I be doing this from a live cd/usb stick?

comment Boot off USB key without bios support
Thanks! I had to choose "mode 2" from the USB 1.1 options in plop for it to boot the usb key and then it worked perfectly!

comment No sound with Intel 82801I Audio
Slightly confusingly, alsactl says it is at version 1.0.22 now but cat /proc/asound/version Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.24.

Thanks. I upgraded alsa and still get [ 7.565952] hda_codec: ALC268: BIOS auto-probing. I should say, there are a lot of alsa messages in dmesg too. See pastebin.com/uZLf6jrv
