When I upgraded my netbook about a month ago and tried it for the first time, I gave it a try and then wondered if they were really going to release this half-finished "thing". I tried it again last week on the chance that it was actually working, but IMO this is far from ready to release, particularly as the default choice, and I can't see how it will have a positive impact on the perception of Ubuntu.Fortunately, Gnome Classic still works, and quite well. I think Unity has some good ideas but it's simply not there yet in terms of completeness and quality.As for fldigi and flrig, run perfectly on the new Ubuntu here too, I compile them from source at least weekly so the upgraded XMLRPC didn't cause me any problems. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Dave's software is probably the best Linux and open source stuff the ham community has to offer, although the FL "look and feel" doesn't blend 100% with a mainly Gnome desktop, especially the behaviour of floating menus etc.73 de Thomas M0TRNOn 30 April 2011 02:54, David <djmunn@...> wrote:

This afternoon I did the distribution upgrade to Ubuntu 11.04. After
upgrading, fldigi failed to start with an error message saying
libxmlrpc_server was missing.
To correct the problem I downloaded the latest fldigi source and
recompiled. Completely solved problem.
BTW, the jury is still out on the new Unity interface. My immediate
reaction is it sucks but I'm going to give it a chance before reverting
to gnome classic. Change always is a pain and I have learned not to jump
to immediate conclusions.
