[ubuntu] Problem with volume control pulse audio not starting

Got the issue this lunch. rebuilding alsa with module-assistant was simple and did the trick. I used mplayer -ao oss mod_of_the_week.ogg to validate my sound hardware was still working properly. The issue is most likely in pulseaudio: re-installing it afterwards killed alsa sound again.

grub2 doesn't look to find my older partitions (reiserfs). Actually, it doesn't even look to recognize any partition tables standing on the legacy IDE drives, only the SATA disk seems to exist :P


/usr/bin/cal changelog

since the upgrade to lucid lynx, my computer throws "cal: option requires an argument -- 'm'" at me when I invoke "cal -m" to specify I'd love to have the week starting on monday. ""Proper" honoring of LC_TIME mixing it with command line options" says the changelog. I spot that those LC_* settings are actually pointing the library towards a data chunk located in /usr/lib/locale/<language setting, e.g. en_DK.utf8>/<subset, e.g. LC_TIME, LC_MONETARY, etc.>

Bug #292504 in gnome-exe-thumbnailer (Ubuntu): “Use embedded icons for executable files”

* gnome-exe-thumbnailer (5.3 KiB, text/plain) And here's the script itself (public domain, by qaaq on Ubuntu Brainstorm). It doesn't seem to work on most icons. I changed the install instructions a little to re-use the built-in MIME type: ---- sudo apt-get install sharutils icoutils sudo cp gnome-exe-thumbnailer /usr/local/bin sudo chmod a rx /usr/local/bin/gnome-exe-thumbnailer gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/thumbnailers/application@x-ms-dos-executable/command --type string "/usr/local/bin/gnome-exe-thumbnailer %i %o" gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/thumbnailers/application@x-ms-dos-executable/enable --type boolean true
