I'm a coder and an astrophysicist. My native language is C++. I live in Manhattan. My favorite beer is la fin du monde.

My favorite linux distro is probably Arch, though I have also installed Ubuntu for the very friendly support community. I prefer gnome-shell to unity, but I like the Ubuntu additions to gtk-3+.

comment How I can install Gimp 2.8 and Gimp 2.9 on the same computer?
That's an entirely different question. If you want an answer, I'd ask it separately.

comment The cd dvd boot option isn't showing up in bios
Can you offer some additional information? Who's your computer's manufacturer? How did you burn the install medium? Has this particular install medium shown up before?

comment snd-hda-intel and the HP Envy 17
Neither of those answer my problem. Note that I have already blacklisted snd-usb-audio as indicated in the first answer, but that doing so does not allow the internal speakers to mute when headphones are plugged in. The second answer is unrelated.

comment No Unity after ubuntu 12.10 upgrade
I can't find anything obvious in the logs. Upgrades can be odd. I would probably try reinstalling 12.10.

They are installed and you are running the correct driver for your card. What happens if you restart X?

If the radeon driver is not installed, then sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon is what you want.
