[ubuntu] Screen dimming on idle issue.view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – This applies to all laptops in which ubuntu is capable of brightness adjustment: when enabled, and the computer is idle, it will dim to the minimum brightness. Where this fails, is that it does not restore the previous brightness when you tap the mouse or a key, etc. Is there a way to fix this? (Hardware)

[ubuntu] No sound coming out of USB headsetview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello. I have Ubuntu 9.10, and am trying to get my headset to work with it. It's a USB headset, not a bluetooth headset. Anyway, the input is working. I switched my input from my internal mic to my USB one in my sound settings, and that fixed that. However, even if I set my output device to the USB, it still doesn't work. Does anyone have any advice? It works on Windows. (Hardware)

[ubuntu] nVidia vs ATI graphics on Linux?view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I want to get a new laptop with a decent graphics card. I don't care that nVidia's drivers are closed source as long as they're good. I've heard that ATI drivers are buggier and I was wondering which card would be best. I have options like GT 240M, GT 320M, Radeon HD 4670. In theory I think 4670 is fastest, but if it is going to cause computer bugs it's not what I want. So my question is... (Hardware)
