  1. [SOLVED] Re: How to install Canon Pixma MX 522 Multifunction? (Ubuntu 12.04 Precise)

    I can't think of the right words to express my gratitude for the help I've received here. A big THANK YOU doesn't seem adequate.

    Doesn't seem to work for me. Tried it with different times (like 15 15 * * * deja-dup --backup - for 3:15 pm) so that I could test it right away instead of waiting until 20:00 hrs to see if it would...

    I decided to try something I had used before that I knew to be pretty safe, i.e. a Knoppix distro that ran from the CD. I figured there was less chance of screwing up the (A) drive containing my OS...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Re-partitioning or re-formatting NTFS partition fails

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Re-partitioning or re-formatting NTFS partition fails
