[lubuntu] Upgrade to 13.10 cut battery life by 80%view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm running Lubuntu on an old Thinkpad X61. I got a solid 4 hours of battery life under 13.04. When i upgraded to 13.10, the battery life dropped to around 40 minutes. Suspend mode also seems to drain the battery much more quickly than before the upgrade. And the machine (not surprisingly) feels like it's running hotter than before. Can anybody point me to a possible tweak or fix? Thanks! (Hardware)

Ubuntu wont boot from External HDD (grub menu shows)view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Recently installed Ubuntu 13.10 on an EXT HDD I bought. The EXT HDD is called: "WD My Passport" and it's got a storage size of 500GB. I installed it from a USB drive on my desktop, installing it to a 150GB size partition on my EXT HDD. After installing, I rebooted my desktop, and it worked! (Hardware)

I have no taskbar...view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So, I've just installed Xfce4 and instead of choosing a "default panel" to begin with, I've accidentally chosen a blank panel. So, I added some things that I want on my panel (app menu, date/time, and some buttons), but I don't have a taskbar. There seems to be no way to add the taskbar as an item to the panel. So, when I open a window and minimize it, it disappears. (Hardware)

Synaptics TouchPad gesture suite driversview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, I recently bought an Acer Aspire V5-572G-6679 with a nifty multi-touch pad and neat gesture software. It worked in windows 8, but I got rid of that and put on 12.04. However, I can't figure out how to make the advanced features work. The synaptics website has a page on their linux driver, but doesn't seem to provide it anywhere. (Hardware)

[ubuntu] Beginner stuck on first step, RAID 0view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am trying to install on a very old Asus Box that I built some years ago. It's a 3.0 ghz system, 2.0 gigs ram and 300 gigs of hd supplied by a raid 0 array running on an onboard Promise Controller. I know that controller will be an issue. First I wanted to just boot unbuntu from a dvd to see if there are other issues. To that end I downloaded the 12.04.3 and the 13.10 versions iso. (Hardware)
