Does anyone know how to force install 32 bit Ubuntu using Crouton? I need it for my Juniper VPN and the -a i386 command doesn't work (no errors, simply installs 64 bit)

I did install it by double clicking but umm, how do I actually use the network connect? It doesn't show up in my list of applications.

Can you force surround sound output?

It would appear that the Chromecast reads the EDID of the device it's plugged into in order to assess the correct video and audio to output without the need for the user to manually enter information.

There have been many issues reported of users attempting to get 5.1 from the Chromecast. I have mine plugged into an HDMI junction box with optical out, this then goes to my 2 channel audio TV (I have an old 5.1 amp). The Chromecast therefore reads the EDID of the TV and only outputs 2 channel audio (and Pro Logic).

I and many others would like the option to force 5.1 output device-wide.

Lovely article! Properly comprehensive, cheers Steve. I didn't realise there were fresh additions to the app list. Having a look ;)

Surprisingly tasty mixed platters. Great atmosphere, distinct from other pubs in the area. Recommended.

Warm chicken wrap was ok, nothing special. The bread was a little dry and the wrap didn't stay together well.

Like the style and promise of the place, though.

Great venue, lovely sunset spot for the restaurant. Tasty main of salmon and scrummy goats cheese salad starter. Popular in the sun when I was there so service not the snappiest.

A very tasty curry, possibly the second tastiest I've had in Brighton. The chicken chat for starter was succulent and not too heavy. The Lamb Mirchi was outstanding.
Quality Excellent

Luna Help  - 
 
Hi all, I am trying to install Elementary Tweaks from the elementary-updates PPA. I add the PPA but when I run sudo apt-get update I get the error "http://ppa.launchpad.net/versable/elementary-update/ubuntu/dists/sid/main/source/Sources 404 Not Found" then it breaks operation. It seems like the PPA is broken.

Any advice? Is there another way to install Elementary Tweaks directly?

Thanks!

Very greasy and unhealthy, although juicy burger that went down well with some of the party. Tasty, salty chips but quite straightforward.

Very good omlette. Tasty croissant, although the French Breakfast was a little basic after that (bread heavy, no fruit or yoghurt).
