I too find Thunderbird much easier to set up although the built in backup feature in Evolution is appealing. I also found previous releases of Evolution to be not that stable, and although this seems better, I lost all control over the open preferences window with a custom theme and had to switch back to a default theme before I could restore the settings.

I've now amended the steps and applied a more general approach by adding the software source to the Ubuntu Software Center. The steps for adding the DockBarX applet now should work easier and better on Ubuntu 10.10

With this and a few other items updated, the tips and tricks now work with Ubuntu 10.10 as well as 10.04.

Cheers!

Very nice indeed.
Those tips you published have made a world of difference for me. I have actually had more success following the linux advice here at Gizmo's compared to the often obscure advice found on the Ubuntu specific sites. I for one appreciate your diligence.

I get a FATAL Error message whilst ubuntu is booting, something that it cannot open libraries. Anyone else had any of these?

Have you tinkered with your MBR (master boot record). I have found through the years, its not hard to crash a linux system. I have crashed them many many times

Also does Ubuntu stop in the middle of the boot up or from the very start. If its in the middle of boot up you may have accidentally deleted a file.
One of the precautions I have adopted is to make a Image of my root partition. I have the ext4 file so I am using Paragons backup and recovery2010 others programs may also work with ext4 . I got Paragon when it was being offered free. A version of Paragon backup and recovery can be had By following this link on Gizmo's best free drive imaging.
My linux partition is only 22 gigs and and actual use is 7 gigs and so with normal compression I can back up on a single dvd

As the saying goes: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

Cheers

The actual message is this:

modprobe : FATAL : could not load /lib/modules/2.6.35-22-generic-pae-modules.dep no such file or folder

It happens after I start ubuntu from grub loader and after displaying the message for 5 seconds ubuntu loads as normal and I have noticed any errors after that.

Been solid as a rock in that department so far for me.

I did have a few boot/shutdown issues with PCLinuxOS which I attributed to the updates as they didn't start happening until after I applied them. Makes me wonder too about the wisdom of rolling releases as opposed to the Ubuntu way of doing things. With a fresh download of PCLinuxOS the immediate update package was then another 265+MB. Surely absorbing this amount of extra data is bound to destabilize something? If Ubuntu had not been so good to me I would have reinstalled the PCLinuxOS KDE 2010 but not updated it

Allthough I'm no Linux expert. But if I was to guess you are having a dependency problem with a piece of software. Have you installed or uninstalled anything lately? Or perhaps if you installed something outside of Ubuntu's installer utility. Its possible it did not include a dependant file when you installed it on your system. This has happened to me before. Try tracking down software you installed or uninstalled before getting the error.

Good Luck

Just the usual stuff I think, kompozer, GKrellM, Screenlets and Compiz

I dont think I have uninstalled anything

Is there a way to fix this?
