comment Cannot open .doc files
@Sandy I think what graham is trying to say is to first open up LibreOffice Writer (without a document), and then go to the File-->Open menu, select the document, and then specify that it is a Microsoft Word ".doc" file.

comment What should I consider when purchasing a (flatbed) scanner?
I do have a scanner that doesn't have a Ubuntu driver (or at least didn't three years ago when I replaced it). Personally, I have found HP has some of the best Linux support, so I stick with them.

You shouldn't need a static IP address if you use a service like DynDNS. It will actually create an DNS entry for your machine and track it as it changes.

comment How to configure 5.1 surround sound through three 3.5 mm jacks?
It might be helpful to specify if you are using the default sound system that came with Ubuntu 11.04, or if you have changed to another one (i.e. alsa).

"jack" tag removed as it refers to the JACK low latency sound server [askubuntu.com/tags/jack/info ].

comment Problem with the Display after moving hard drive from one laptop to another
How did you install the NVIDIA drivers in the first place? Did you use the proprietary driver tool in Ubuntu (System->Administration->Drivers -- I think [my Ubuntu boxes aren't here]), or did you download and build the source from NVIDIA?

comment composite-video-to-usb adaptor
@sawa I'm not sure what else to suggest. You might try doing an ls -lt /dev | head and see what the latest devices added were and see if they might be the correct one. Other then that, I would search the device ID (0572:262a) and see what it says.
