  1. [ubuntu] Re: Using Deborphan software removal tool?

    What are you actually trying to remove specifically? apt-get autoremove is the command to remove un-needed packages, otherwise I'd recommend using Synaptic to see what a package does/what it links to...

    [xubuntu] Re: Wireless drivers?

    You raise a few points, and your reply is by far the most obnoxious, so I'm going to reply to it first.

    [xubuntu] Wireless drivers?

    Reposting from the Networking forum, after an hour of no replies. Plus, my experience with wireless drivers is small, so I more or less fit the "Absolute Beginner" specification!

  4. Re: Using 12.04LTS, How do I upgrade Unity? How do I check current version?

    Agreed, or just install a new version cleanly - this is probably the way I'd do it. OP may have reasons for sticking with 12.04, though, and so searching for a .deb, and then solving problems as and...

    Ehhh. On the security front certainly, I think since we're all on Linux, it's something we can more or less forget about. There are no known ...
  6. Re: Using 12.04LTS, How do I upgrade Unity? How do I check current version?

    +1 to this. As evidenced by my use of Aurora/Earlybird, I'd rather be using the latest and greatest rather than the necessarily most stable software, but that's an entirely personal choice, and one...

    The command to upgrade packages is:

    [xubuntu] Wireless drivers?

    Hi all!

    I'm trying to get a wireless USB adapter working. The output of "lsusb" is as follows:

    The plot thickens! The Windoze installer works, but the boatloader STILL fails to pull the files from the drive.

    It's the /dev/sda which (according to the fdisk -l output) looks like the HDD to me (I certainly don't have an 80GB USB stick!).

    That's the thing, the error with GParted occurs when I go to...

    BIOS, AFAIK. The computer's from around 2006/7 - which is too old for the likelihood of it being UEFI to be high, right?
