Ubuntu again

Well, I’ve finally put Ubuntu on my new desktop. The only serious problem I’ve had so far is my mouse not being recognized at certain times. Other than that, fairly smooth. My NTFS partition is mounted and read/writable. MP3s are playing and my video files work (even the WMV files, which was surprisingly easy considering I’m using the amd64 version). Amakrok doesn’t seem to want to play my surround sound FLAC files, though. Normal FLAC files, yes. I still could set up Flash, but I don’t care enough about it right now. Still have to try playing a DVD, too.

One thing I love about running Linux is using Gnomad2, a program for uploading to Creative MP3 players. After using the horrendous MediaSource program, this thing is a breath of fresh air. It does exactly what I want to do, without the bloat and finickiness of Creative’s software.

    Be very careful with having your NTFS partion read/writable. It would suck to see all the data gone because of a bug.

    I keep telling myself that, but I’m not being particularly careful. I’m planning on making backups soon.
