Another problem with HP 520 Intel Core Duo notebook with Ubuntu 7.10 GG.

I can not use the modem.
How can I check what is the modem type ?
Or somebody already success to dialup ?

Hi Folks ...

Since last October '07 I use Nokia 3500c (classic).
I tried to connect with Wammu on Ubuntu 7.10 GG but can't connect at that time.
I don't know what the system updates but currently It can communicate with the mobile using bluetooth.
Wammu can retrieve Info, Contacts and Calls records. Still can not retrieve Messages, Todos and Calendar.
The Wammu version is 0.22 running on Python 2.5.2 using wxPython , python-gammu 0.22 and Gammu 1.13.0.

The swap partition is lost when your notebook failed to hibernate.

Somehow my notebook still can not hibernate. I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 GG.
With the default system, I didn't get a clue was the hibernate process success or not. It just then shutdown. And it can't resume.
I tried to install uswsusp. The installation process was OK and it can hibernated but still can not resume from hibernation.

The notebook is HP 520 Intel Core Duo.

Any idea ?

Photos / Images Manager for Ubuntu Linux

I'm still looking for Photos/Images Manager for Ubuntu Linux. The requirements are :
- basic images processing (rotation, etc )
- assign IPTC / EXIF fields into multiples files in one click
- search for all IPTC / EXIF fields in one text box to type only

I already try some application :
- F-Spot Photo Manager
- jBrout
- mapivi

Mapivi is quite good for the search combination.
Any other alternative ? Please comment ...
