How does the 'swap' drive actually work????
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 5, 2008
I was wondering about the Linux swap partition drive.
So, it uses hard drive space as memory. Does this mean that if I had a 100GB hard drive and used 90GB for swap, that this computer will run decently fast???
Open Movie Editor
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 21, 2010
I am new to viedo editing so please go easy on me. I have a bunch of avi films I want to select clips from to play with them later. I installed Open Movie Editor, and KDEnlive I still havent figured out how to remove 3 minute clips from the films. Can anyone point me to a tutorial, or give me a walk through on editing videos? I was hoping this process would be like editing audio with audacity, simple and intuitive. Is there better software I should be using?
Can someone please help a new python programmer with a semantic error

Hey I have a problem... it took me a while to realize exactly why my program wasn't working... yet although i see it i still don't understand why . here is my code:
#! /usr/bin/env python
#program takes a string, copies it into a list but only one of each unique value in the string, ignoring multiple copies
# if the string was "stramnal" it should create a list with s,t,r,a,m,n,l
f = open("sordid", "r")
contains = f.read()
container = 
i2 = 0
print "length of container is", len(container)
print "length of contains is", len(contains)
# only 10 repetitions for debugging purposes
while i2 < 10:
counter = 0
index = 0
while index < len(container):
print "index is: ", index
print "length of container is: ", len(container)
# cycle through entire container to the end
# if a value in contains, is already stored in container, skip it
if container[index] == contai

TouchPad Left Click is stuck. Requires replacement. Instead, I want to disable it.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2010
What can I do to disable ONLY the LEFT touchpad button on my laptop?
Issues: Left Click sticks by itself randomly, this causes problems when using my USB mouse (such as permanent dragging, permanent highlighting, permanent inability to left click anything, the computer is pretty much dead to me unless I try to tab around), it also causes issues with the Tap to Click, and it also causes Ubuntu to not recognize my "Left Handed" mouse button set up after boot for ONLY the touchpad. On the USB mouse, buttons work swapped.
Current solution: Left Handed Button Swap. Touch pad to click. Right touchpad button to right click. Sometimes I use my USB (which does recognize the swap).
This is the 3rd install of vanilla Ubuntu (tried it just in case). That's not the issue.
This is a Dell Inspiron 6000.
Ideally I want to just disable the left button on ONLY the touchpad, I don't want this to affect my USB mouse. I want to keep the right button touch pad working. And of course
Open browser when connecting wirelessly?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 19, 2014
Am in Germany right now at a hotel which provides wireless service. After getting on the network a browser is supposed to open automatically to a hotel specific www.hotspots.de site asking for a username and password.
When I connect to this wireless network here with my Android phone, the browser on the phone automatically opens and asks for the login information.
When my wife connects to the wireless network here with her Macbook Air, her browser opens to the hotel specific hotspot and asks for the login name and password.
When I connect to the wireless network with my Ubuntu laptop, the default browser does not open. If I open the browser myself, I cannot get to the hotel specific hotsport at www.hotels.de to enter the login information.
Any ideas on how I can proceed?

Best pocket webbrowser device?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 27, 2010
I'm in the market for a mobile web browser. By that, I mean something like an Ipod touch. So I'm here to seek the collective wisdom of my favorite geeky site. I want to be able to surf the web over wi-fi comfortably and quickly, play a few games, and watch videos on a pocket-size device with no cell contract. Is there a better option than an Ipod Touch? Maybe something running Droid?
