    RE: Choosing a distro: Pros and Cons from real users
    Yeah I think Linux Mint is a great way to start for any new user. Comes with all sorts of packages pre-installed, with most video and sound working right out of the box. The control center is a basic one stop for most things that basic users need to worry about, ex video sound users passwords desktops menus on and on.

    uninstall video drivers
    Hi, I recently install video drivers on my Ubuntu 9.10. However, they were bad drivers, and thus do not work. How do I uninstall bad drivers or check them? I know there are many locations that they do exist but should I delete the folders? That seems like a bad idea. Here is my xorg.conf [code]Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" DefaultDepth 24 EndSection Section "Module" Load "glx" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Default Device" Driver "nvidia" Option "NoLogo" "True" EndSection[/code] and the xorg.conf failsafe [code]Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" Driver "vesa" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" EndSection[/code] The xorg.conf-backup-100512115642 is the same as xorg.conf. Drivers are obviously installed but not working. My system is athlon 4200 2 8800 GTS 512 SLI 2 GB RAM Best course of action?

    Here is my xorg.conf

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    DefaultDepth 24
    EndSection

    Section "Module"
    Load "glx"
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Default Device"
    Driver "nvidia"
    Option "NoLogo" "True"
    EndSection


    and the xorg.conf failsafe

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Driver "vesa"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    The xorg.conf-backup-100512115642 is the same as xorg.conf. Drivers are obviously installed but not working.

    My system is
    athlon 4200
    2 8800 GTS 512 SLI
    2 GB RAM

    Best course of action?

    RE: sound problem
    What model laptop are you using? I can't find it. If your drivers aren't working, open the Terminal an type [i]lspci[/i] and paste it. This command is very useful as it gives an output for all devices in the system. It will give us a good idea what to install for which device.

    RE: new ubuntu user seeking help with adobe flash
    Using the Synaptics Package Manager is probably the easiest way to install flash, and more importantly, a good few hundred other programs/libraries. It can also differentiate between CPUs, if need be.
