    That's a nice change, they normally do released on the very last day of the month

    They must have decided that that's cutting it fine with their naming standard

      Nice, I'm looking forward to try this on my Llano HP Probook 6465b(A6-3410mx), it worked with 11.04, but adding kernel 3.0 completely messed it up, and I don't like the desktop performance, Nexuiz and everythng runs fine, but moving windows seems laggy tbh. Anyway can't wait to try it.

        The bug where moving windows is laggy (and overall bad desktop performance with AMD Catalyst) will be fixed in one of the next Compiz updates, maybe in 1-2 weeks. You can turn off "sync to Vblank" in compizconfig-settings-manager in the meanwhile. This bug was also present in Ubuntu 11.04.

          Just came home to see a dialog suggesting me to upgrade. As a satisfied user of Gnome 2.32 I can see no reason to accept.

            Sweet, thanks for the tip, I will fix that then, I thought it was something missing in support of the kernel used in 11.04, since Kernel 3.0 officially had support for AMD Fusion. Btw on topic, tried to update 11.04 on my laptop to 11.10, major graphics error, suspect I have to try and fix it through recovery mode.

              Duplicate link description

              Apparently the Linkt Pointing to http://www.canonical.com/content/tra...pc-ubuntu-1110 should also have "Transforming the business PC with Ubuntu 11.10"

                I've upgraded my mythbuntu machine and had to do a few things to fix the upgrade-induced breakages:
                1) They've removed lirc-modules-source, and you are now forced to use the kernel-provided modules. This required me to change my lirc.conf module names (lirc_mceusb -> mceusb for me).

                2) I had to remap all of my remote control buttons as a result of #1. (~/.lirc/mythv). If you need to do this, use 'irw' to find the new button names to substitute in.

                3) Lightdm uses unity-greeter by default which crashes repeatedly on startup. This left me at a console and I had to SSH into the machine to fix it.
                Fix: Add the crowd-greeter PPA and install crowd-greeter as a unity-greeter alternative, edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and changed the greeter name appropriately.

                Otherwise, the upgrade was pretty smooth. The machine is running, the TV tuner works (something that the last 3 upgrades had broken on me, requiring custom kernels to fix), and hopefully it'll fix a momentary freeze between programs when watching TV while it's recording.

                Machine:
                AMD Phenom II x3 720
                Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit (upgraded from 11.04)
                4GB DDR2
                2x 1.5TB in software RAID1
                Radeon HD 3200 (780G motherboard)

                  Slow window movement in Unity3d

                  Hm. I'm running on r300g (which is supposed to be more or less on par with Catalyst by now, right?) and the sync to vblank didn't change a thing. Very dissappointing experience, so much so in fact that I had to switch to unity2d.

                  Hopefully there'll be a fix soon.

                    i do not like gnome 3 and its big buttons there should be a button in the launch bar to make gnome 3 turns into gnome 2 .
                    i tested it few minutes with wmvare8 and tried to open the "run windows" using Alt-F2 but it did not opened anything . anyone knows the command ?

                      Well my Radeon 9600m (RV350) with r300g works OK. Only the unity menu is bit laggy (because of blur probably). So far it works good.

                          ATI Radeon HD 3200 (RS780) malfunctions ONLY with Gnome Shell

                          I have an identical set-up (AMD Athlon X2). Upgraded from 11.04 to 11.10. Unity works well. Gnome DO on unity allows me to change the look (sign that compositing is working).

                          But Gnome Shell acts funny. It flickers. The top bar shows different colors. My name at the end misses some characters, etc.

                          For your ready reference, I have fglrx-updates, fglrx-amdccle-updates, and xserver-xorg-video-radeon packages installed from the repository.

                          Additional drivers (From system settings - Additional drivers) shows ATI AMD Proprietary FGLRX graphics driver and post-release update for the same as unactivated.

                          When I tried activiting the post-release update, it resulted in an error (/var/log/jockey.log).

                          What am I doing wrong? How do I get Gnome Shell working?

                          Thanks in advance.

                            fglrx has several driver bugs that prevent it from working with Gnome Shell. Things have gotten a little better with fglrx 11.9 and will probably improve more in the future, but for proper support you need to revert to the open-source drivers. That's what I did and I can finally enjoy Gnome Shell properly (plus, better 2d performance and suspend works again).

                              I can't see the pictures, I think there's something with the hosting site you chose, anyway, the way I got past it was simply to install 11.04 and update to 11.10, although at first it did the same, but I suspect they updated something after a few days because I did exactly the same later but it looked fine the second time I tried it, however, if it hadn't I could do as I did when I had to remove the older driver, that is change to another workplace(via ctrl+alt+F1-F6) and do it through commandline. I've often tried Ubuntu and Debian, and even back in school I did use Ubuntu for quite a while actually, but would eventually get back to Windows, I have to admit, so far I've been so impressed with Ubuntu 11.xx that I've decided to use it on my HTPC as well as my Work laptop, last challenge is my Desktop PC, and so far I haven't been too happy with the performance of Wine on my HTPC so it might be a while before I make the final change on that.
