UF Tutorial of the Week – June 1, 2009.

This week, we step again out of the Tutorial & Tips section of the forums, to highlight psyke83‘s gigantic HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide. Intel graphic hardware is quite popular and Intel drivers code has been extensively developed. Jaunty has some problems with the latest intel drivers or acceleration method. You can choose one of the three proposed methods, from safe, to optimal and the always risky bleeding edge.

We hope this will help ou with Intel video chips, please feel free to post your questions in the thread, psyke83 is actively supporting his tutorial.

See you next week !

Kill X session in Jaunty Jackalope

The usual CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE has been disabled in Jaunty, please read the Jaunty Jackalope technical overview:

Ctrl-Alt-Backspace is now disabled, to reduce issues experienced by users who accidentally trigger the key combo. Users who do want this function can enable it in their xorg.conf, or via the command dontzap –disable.

You can use ALTGR + SYSRQ + K or ALTGR + PRINTSCREEN + K instead.

If you want to enable the previous behavior, you can edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and add the following lines at the end:

Section "ServerFlags"
	Option 		"DontZap"	"off"	
EndSection
