  1. Re: Switching access points from command line?

    Looks good!

    I'm not familiar with nmcli, so I'm going to give it a try.

    I'm using a Transcend WiFi SD card in a camera, which behaves as an access point (essid WIFISD).

    I've been switching from my router (essid dd-wrt) to the WiFi card using the network manager applet...

    Re: Distro with alternative to Pulseaudio?

    My Linux experience goes back to the 0.9 kernel (or was it 0.95?) on Slackware in the 90s, so my memory is a bit hazy when I changed over!

    I've googled around and it seems I'm not the only one...

    Re: Distro. with alternative to Pulseaudio?

    Won't Lubuntu still have the wretched Pulseaudio sound server, that I want to get away from?

    No, they're earphones labeled 'Sport Series R7' and 'Bluetooth v2.1'.

    [xubuntu] Bluetooth Troubleshooting?

    I've had problems with connecting my bluetooth headphones on my Xubuntu 13.10 laptop since early after installation and never have been able to get to the bottom of it. Sporadic postings and searches...
  10. [xubuntu] Re: Bluetooth headphones not working with pulseaudio and 13.10

    No?

    I guess I'll have to continue listening with my bluetooth earphones on a Windows machine, until an Ubuntu/Xubuntu release with a working bluetooth eventually comes along - or is it 'rocket...

    Re: Things that you dislike in Ubuntu

    It seems that the more features Ubuntu (and probably other distros) get, the more unreliable the system becomes.

    I started with Linux in the early 90's with Slakware with a kernel at about 0.9 -...

  16. [xubuntu] Re: When's 13.10 coming out for Xubuntu, and will it fix my installation?

    If I run the Update Manager, I get the invitation to update to 13.10. If I then open a terminal and do 'tail -f /var/log/syslog' and accept the pop-up invitation I get:

    Nope - 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' does nothing except return "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded." (I checked that I am in fact running 13.04 in /etc/os-release.)

  18. [xubuntu] When's 13.10 coming out for Xubuntu, and will it fix my installation?

    I'm sick of the problems I've been having after 'upgrading'(!) from 12.10 to 13.04. Every time I log on I get another frustrating problem!
