I really loved winamp when just released, but with the years their look changed so much that now I consider them awful. Could look better for other people, but not for me.

I'm using Crunchbang 10 and this worked like a charm! I had to take paolo's advice on replacing "Configured Video Display" with "ATI Technologies, Inc. Rage Mobility M4 (AGP)" in the "Screen" section. Thanks so much guys,

You could also add filters for that domain to Adblock Plus as well in a custom filter: ||*ppjol.net^ ||*ppjol.com^$domain=baltimoresun.com The latter is specific to baltimoresun.com.

Another very easy and simple workaround. I wanted something a bit more consistent that did not require much in the way of repetitive action.

or just delete the cookies from ppjol.com when you hit the limit. When I get some real motivation I'll just completely block cookies from them by one way or another....

Linux Newb here, After installing Lubuntu 11.10 I had the same problem of a "garbled" screen, after several searches I came across this page and man it was a life saver (had to search for every command I used - mv, rm, cp, cd - - really new to Linux) but I am glad to say that after creating and editing xorg.conf on my desktop I then copied the file to "/etc/X11/" and everything worked out great...thanks a ton. Like I always say "Google is your friend" Thanks again for the great post

Ubuntu 11.10 is running well on a 10+yrs old Dell Latitude C800 model No:PP01X 512 GB RAM, 20GB. A vintage Xircom 56Kb modem/Ethernet PC Card from my "junk box" is used to connect to the Ethernet and was detected and functions without a glitch. During the installation from a CD no problems were reported, but after installation I had the same difficulties as experienced by Baltimore Mick. The display was garbled and useless. Opening a terminal with Ctrl/Alt/F1 no problem. The first problem I encountered was with "gedit" I didn't wanted to try to sort this problem out, so I switched to "nano" as my editor. As expected there was no "xorg.conf " file in /etc/X11/ With nano I created the "xorg.conf" and typed the content related to the Monitor/Screen (cfr JOPO) into that "xorg.conf " file and copied the file to /X11 with cp. I started Ubuntu, but still had the blurred screen. But now I could change the resolution by clicking the "Sytem Settings" and "Displays". Had to drag the "Displays" icon out of the garbled zone. The max resolution I could get is 1400x1050. I also toggled between "lightDM" and "GDM" as a test, but remained with "lightDM". Thanks to all for the useful info.

FYI, It worked great on 11.04 that I just installed with the alternate CD. Thanks for saving me hours and hours!

Can I simply say what a reduction to seek out someone who really is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to mild and make it important. Extra people need to learn this and perceive this facet of the story. I cant imagine youre not more widespread because you undoubtedly have the gift.
