Just installed Ubuntu 9.04. It's great! And fast too. Also installed another Ubuntu fork called gOS ("Good OS") on one PC. Very nice too! I'm staying with these two for awhile.

Removed Linux Mint from all my PCs. Had problems with Flash and Youtube after the last update. Then the main Mint developer politicized the distro by adding his personal views on the Israel/Palentinian problem. Actually asked people NOT to use nor contribute to Linux Mint if they didn't agree with him.

So instead of trying to figure out the flash/youtube problem, I honored his request and removed Mint and replaced it with Ubuntu. I'm much happier now.

Thats wierd, I tried going back to Ubuntu and still had the same flash problems I did back with versons 7.x. I always used Mint because flash and all the codecs were installed right. I ended up uninstalling Ubuntu 9.04 and put the new Mint rc back on.

When Ubuntu-based CrunchBang 9.04.01 is released, give that one a try. Even though it is a minimalist distro
(no desktop icons), it is easy to use and has better support for Flash and media codecs than any distro I've tried.
It is also a lot faster and resource-frugal than Mint or Ubuntu.

BTW, the reason for the delayed CB release is that the distro maintainer (corenominal) is on his honeymoon.

I already downloaded that version and couldn't find any significant differences to the last stable kernel.
Not sure what the big improvement is supposed to be, but I like Ubuntu anyway. So no complaint.

For flash problems, try reinstalling the flash component in the package manager. I think its "Swfdec."

Also, there should be two flash packages, one for ubuntu and one for gnome. Install both and it should work.

I like it, especially with compiz.

Red face Ubuntu 9.04 printing - Ubuntu/Linux neophyte

Does anyone here have any suggestions for getting a computer to print to a Xerox network Phaser? I found some careful instructions online, but they say to choose the drivers I downloaded, but I am not given a choice. Other instructions said to put files in the CUPS/Drivers folder, but I am not allowed to do that either. It says I'm not root. But I've just installed the OS from scratch, why am I not root?

I looked in terminal, and it says use sudo not root, but I'm not sure how to get it to unlock those files. The frustrating thing is I did this successfully on an old system about a month ago, but have no idea how!!!

I'm trying not to be completely hopeless/helpless. Any suggestions?
