Yo,

I recently installed Ubuntu LTS 10.04... AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

One thing though... I recently upgraded Wine to v1.3 via:

adding it to Software ppp command. and

sudo apt-get install wine

But ever since this update ...Wine crashes after 15 mins - I am running World of Warcraft :p...

Error: terminal process failure - wine

Any help will be much appreciated...

Vrede,
Vile

OpenShot non-linear video editor that can do some pretty heavy-duty stuff; see the features page (don't want to dump all that here, rather keep it short for thread clarity).

It looks almost identical to Rhythmbox. Is it less resource intensive than RB?
I have not checked, but I was a long time Amarok 1.4 user. Rhythmbox fails to read some of my tags (or only reads some of the data). Every other player works fine.
AFAIK, the have fixed some of the tag issues in 10.10, but I like Clem.

My 2cents worth:

pdftk (PDF Tool Kit) - in conjunction with the convert utility this makes splitting, combining and extracting PDFs a dream.

LOL

I need to look at this when I have time. I installed it but I cannot find it in the menu. Guess you need to work with it in the terminal? The road less traveled is not always easier. :D
Pitivity in Gnome.
