    Yeah, I know MP4 and MKV are containers. But I wouldn't want to convert to H.265 because I don't have anything that can play it. I would prefer to convert to H.264. Are there any AMD cards around...

    I used dpkg to install the drivers. They didn't work. I unistalled the drivers. Then I installed them via apt, just in case that would make a difference. Unfortunately, the drivers didn't work that...

    Okay. So, I'm right about dpkg. I just didn't know that bit of technical information.

    Oh, okay.

    Then how do I install the drivers? Or is that just a detail which doesn't change the solution from dpkg -i debfilename?

    Actually, I've been stuck at the installation stage. Turns out that the mistake I made was that for some reason, I thought the deb files were zip files. I'll just have to run them when I get home....

    I just checked it out. It looks pretty cool, and it's probably a good choice for new "Linuxers" and non-technical users alike. Though, I'm more of a techie, so I'll stick with Ubuntu Gnome. Also, I...

    Nvidia actually has newer drivers for Linux than for Mac OS X, which is funny because Mac OS X is a bigger platform, and it has more mainstream software. With OS X, you’re stuck with Maxwell GPUs....

    That works rather well for syncing bookmarks. The only problem is that it's not available on Ubuntu Touch. I just need to figure out how to make Google sync the bookmarks supplied by Xmarks.
