    [ubuntu] Re: Do these Wi-fi USB Adapters work with ubuntu?

    Just noticed this thread, so sorry if info is too late, but there are two very compatible usb wireless adapters on my "recommend list" . . . . the TP-Link 722, and the Panda UltraWifi mini adapter. ...
  2. [kubuntu] Re: 12.04 Ralink RT5390 wireless speeds mindblowingly slow

    If configuring the device doesn't improve connectivity, another practical, simple solution is to get another wifi adapter. The "Panda Ultra Wifi" b/g/n 150 Mbs USB adapter is plug and play in...
  3. Re: What happens to the thumb drive after installation of ubuntu?

    It might be a good idea to keep the USB flash stick with Ubuntu on it as it could be a "rescue device" if something were to go wrong in your new install.

    IF the usb is large enough, I would...

    Thanks . . . am going to install Virtual Box via Windows, then install both Ubuntu and Kubuntu. Some users know about Ubuntu and want to see it & Unity, others just prefer the standard PC type of...

    I'm looking for the simplest, most reliable way to accomplish this. Are the virtual machine systems about the same regarding setup and operation? I'm not needing a tutorial here, but just the...

  7. [kubuntu] Re: Laptop won't boot up IF power cord not connected (but battery is OK)

    Thanks Sandyd,

    If I can get some time with Trudy's laptop, I'll try a few acpi related mods & see if any changes. I suspect Trudy is basically OK with the overall operation of the laptop,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Screwed-Up Big Time

    Here's a link to a Ubuntu forum thread, dealing with ethernet connectivity issue, for users with the same network hardware you have. Note that there are "two" separate solutions in this thread. ...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: The ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI 1 0,0,0 sda failed

    While MariaDB, MySQL, etc. are excellent databases -- they're probably overkill for 9 of 10 people in personal use cases. At an organization, public or private, such db's are essential to run slice...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: The ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI 1 0,0,0 sda failed

    I think the problem was/is installing Linux with UEFI disabled ? ? ? ?

    It seems it's REQUIRED to turn "Secure Boot" off - - so the install media (CD or DVD or USB-Stick) will be allowed to load...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: The ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI 1 0,0,0 sda failed

  12. [kubuntu] Re: Laptop won't boot up IF power cord not connected (but battery is OK)

    UPDATE: today, I found out the HP1210 laptop will run on battery power IF it's first booted up while connected via AC plug. Total battery up time estimated at between 2'15" to 2'30". Average...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: The ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI 1 0,0,0 sda failed

    In all these thread posts, I don't recall seeing a link to the official Ubuntu Documentation pages which describe the "suggested" method for installing Ubuntu in an UEFI/EFI environment.

    This is...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: The ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI 1 0,0,0 sda failed

    FMFCorpsman,

    Maybe another valid option is to install Ubuntu 13.04 via a Net install versus any type of boot-up media, as Microsoft has done a wonderful job on not only controlling the...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: The ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI 1 0,0,0 sda failed

    Is it still possible to return, and get credited for the "Win8" laptop from Dell? IF so, there is a super easy way to level the playing field (with Microsoft or Apple) - buy a laptop with Linux...

    Yes, you could overlay any one of the top 10 or 12 linux distros over the chrome OS, as it's already running a linux kernel. Or you can get a fairly recent refurbished Dell or any main brand PC that...

    Just in case you're not successful in installing driver script, here is another route to go - - get a compatible usb wireless adapter that's verified to be "plug and play" . . . no drivers needed.

  23. [kubuntu] Re: Startup and Shutdown Screens show verbose text (Kub.13.4) - how2cleanup?

    Thanks for the update. All things considered, I'll probably just leave the laptop setup as is, rather than risk breaking something (on another persons machine). The Kubuntu install has really...

    Hi Steve,

    Just saw your suggestion earlier today, and I enabled the partners source. So tonight's flash update went a whole bunch smoother. Thanks!
