Welcome to the Ultimate Edition forum.

Our goal is to provide current news and timely assistance for you if required. To ensure a good outcome for any issue you may have, please post as much pertinent information as possible including which version of Ultimate Edition you are using , a detailed explanation of the problem, what hardware configuration are you running and what version of software you are trying to use. The following example illustrates what type of information you should supply:

Topic: Amarok 2.4 sound issues.

I am running Ultimate Edition 2.6.1 and recently upgraded from Amarok 1.4 to the newest version 2.4 . When I upgraded, Amarok exhibited choppy playback. I am running an Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe mother board using the on-board sound ADI1988B chipset. I have not changed the default sound manager and all drivers are current.


As you can see, this post is informative enough that we can start checking for issues of compatibility with your sound chipset and Amarok. The better the information in the original post the less wasted time and better the answer we can give you. Please remember this is a voluntary community and we are helping for free. We understand the frustrations when things don't work as they should and we too get frustrated if we cannot find a solution, so please be respectful and remember the quality of the advice you receive is only as good as the question that is asked. :D


Yes, here is :
Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cheleb/blender-svn

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install blender

The idea here is right. You can upgrade most of your programs specifically by updating your sources and then executing the install command even if you already have it installed. The newest version if available will replace your older. In this case however, the Ubuntu source is opting for the older version so you would introduce a ppa to get to the newer one. However, the source provided here is out of date so I have provided a link on the forum to the new one and I will post here as well....

Execution

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:irie/blender


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install blender

And now, the completely true facts, as told by an anonymous man hiding behind a screen name:
