I have previously written about Compaq CQ61 with Nvidia graphics drivers, and the problem with 6 screens. See post. If you have a similar setup and solved the problem as described, then there should be no problem upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04.
I have made some posts about the Compaq CQ61 with Nvidia G103M graphics card and how to speed things up and get the screen working. On Ubuntu 10.04 another problem have been bugging me for a long time – overheating! Time to post a solution.
Ubuntu 10.10 is soon to be released. What's your opinion? Does it still rock, will it kick Windows out the office door (again!), or is it getting more "Window-ish" with bugs and features going hand in hand?

Update: This post now have a step-by-step instruction on how to install the latest Digikam version on Ubuntu 9.10

I tried to install it, but unfortunately the package breaks the "Showphoto". Whatever that means. I guess that the Ubuntu (or Kubuntu) package is too different to allow the OS to just upgrade right away. I'll look into this as soon as I have the chance. But I will also look forward to see Ubuntu 10.04, and hope that the new Digikam version is included in the repositories.
