Team Speak

OK Chicago, what are you currently doing with your Ubuntu setup? What version are running? Any problems?

  • I use Gimp, Freeciv, and the openoffice apps quite frequently, they work flawlessly to say the least! The only real problem I have encountered is with my scanner and Xsane. I have a HP Photosmart 2575 all-in-one, I can print perfectly, but when I try to scan with Xsane my printer errors out. I get the BSOD on the lil 2 inch LCD, so that's what I'm workin on right now.
  • Using Kubuntu 6.06 LTS (2 desktops & 1 Laptop), Ubuntu 6.06 LAMP (2 servers). I use everything that begins with 'K'. I also use, amaroK, Gimp, IRSSI, Kopete, Firefox, Kdevelop, Quanta, OpenOffice 2, Scribus, digiKam, XnView, Gobby, Emacs, VMware Server & Workstation, and many more. I am on various Ubuntu/Kubuntu teams and I am always at the [https://launchpad.net/ Launchpad] fielding support questions, bug reports, and specifications. ~ RichJohnson ~

  • Like most I use Firefox & Open Office for most desktop needs. I use stream tuner, stream ripper to rip MP3 from Internet radio, I use Beep Media Player, GTKpod, Amarok, Audacity, Scribus and of course the Gimp. ~ ["Greenwom"] ~

  • Using Ubuntu 6.06 LTS on my Dell Inspiron 9300, everything that I normally use is working (Wireless and Bluetooth Included). I've loaded Unreal Tournament 2004, and Quake 4. Both games work without issue. It's hard for me to tell if its a bug or something that I've done wrong since I'm an inexperienced linux user. ~ Jason Czajkowski ~
  • Former Debian user of about a year, recently switched to Ubuntu because its primary focus on the desktop aligns more with my usage habits. I use my machine for basic desktop and internet tasks as well as development in C/C++ and Java. Currently using 6.06 with selected packages from Edgy. Near future plans to install a tuner card and MythTV to make this box my primary media center as well. ~ ["JohnDietrick"] ~

  • Have Ubuntu running on 2 machines - one my workstation/server (Dell PowerEdge SC430) - used as a fileserver/jack of all trades machine. (on a side note, ask me why I had to use a hacksaw to run a decent video card) Loaded it up with memory to run VMWare and run virtual OS's for practice/studies (I do MS stuff in the workplace, but would much rather deal with Linux). FreeNX for remote access, even played some UT2004 on it as well (though I am horrible at FPS games). Laptop (Dell C640) with Ubuntu for day to day surfing and whatnot on the couch. Have a Shuttle PC setup running Knoppmyth, playing vids/music hosted on my server over NFS. Almost a terabyte of storage in total at home, with no problems of stability or dealing with licensing (YAY!). I'm a linux newbie still, but very enthusiastic about learning more about it. ~ BrianGreen2
