Couple of noob questions
Hey all, I just installed Ubuntu Gutsy on my Dell inspiron 6400 and I almost have everything the way I want it, but I have a couple of unresolved issues that I need help with.
1. My g/f and I have a printer connected to her computer that was shared (in windows) and I printed all of my stuff out on. Is it possible to still use linux to accomplish this, and is it relatively easy to do?
2. I downloaded ATi's linux driver, and installed it, but I get the feeling that it's still using some generic driver that comes with ubuntu. Whenever I try to tell my laptop that I have a widescreen resolution of 1280x80, the screen gets distorted, interlaced and you can see everything on my desktop triplicated and I have to reboot and reset all of my desktop settings in terminal. How do I go about checking to see which driver is installed?
3. last but not least... (rediculously simple) is there a way to tell my computer to use a specific program to open a file? I want xmms as my default mp3 player, but right now it's totem.
thanks for all of your help!
