Default UNR bios & Side question - 07-01-2009, 06:49 PM

Hey all!

I was wondering whats the best bios to use to Run UNR? I am using A05 and its working well, but battery life is only 2hours 15min. I was wondering if changing it would give more battery life. From what I have read on the forums.

Side Question: As you know (or not) You can switch from classic view and netbook view. I switch it to Classic and all I can see is the desktop wallpaper (or background) nothing else. I cant seem to figure out how to go back to Netbook view as I liked that view. Any help is great.

thanks in advance.

You want to avoid the desktop-switcher utility. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=7253643&postcount=15 and here for more information, including information about fixing the problem.

I don't think the new version has made it into jaunty-updates, yet, but it is available in jaunty-proposed.
