[ubuntu] AMD E-300 with integrated HD6310 Graphics - Video playbackview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey guys. So, today I installed Ubuntu on my notebook, but the video playback performance is really bad. Youtube lags at even 720p and it does the same locally.

[ubuntu] Sans-serif versus Arialview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Most computers are able to read Arial and Helvetica fonts. In Thunderbird, you can set your outgoing emails to display Arial/Helvetica (as s single setting).
