    [ubuntu_studio] Re: Dropped computer, now no Grub, just XP

    Thank you again; now I have a better idea of what you meant.

    I discovered a little while ago that my external hdd is no longer being detected. Though it was not involved with the fall directly,...

    [ubuntu_studio] Re: Dropped computer, now no Grub, just XP

    No, they aren't made for that at all. :sad:

    Thanks for your reply. I should have told you I'm only about a month into using any Linux distro, so I'm a little shy of experience at this point. ...

    [ubuntu_studio] Dropped computer, now no Grub, just XP

    My German Shepherd uses her nose to move things around to get at what she wants. This time, she wanted me to scratch her face. When she tried to get at me from the side of my desk, she decided my...

    Re: Samsung Blues

    I thought I'd put this out there again in hopes that someone who knows more than I do can offer a hand.

    Samsung Blues

    When I first installed my printer, Ubuntu found it, and installed drivers for it in no time. I can even print to a degree, but printing is not consistent. Sometimes, it prints rightly, but other...

    Re: Brick walls with Wine

    Thank you, I'd like to run a reasonably up-to-date computer again. I spend an inordinate amount of time trying - successfuly for the large part - to coax a little something more from this one until I...

    Yes, I have...quite a bit over several days, and have taken a good bit of direction from there, as well as from other sources. Much of the information available is for Wine v.1.1 & v.1.2; very little...

    Re: Brick walls with Wine

    Thanks! Those are good reasons to go with a VM. I did briefly look into VirtualBox, and it does seem like it might be the best solution in many ways. A couple of circumstances make it complicated in...

    Re: Brick walls with Wine

    Not making much speed here, and it seems I'm stuck again/still. I have 2 registered copies of Photoshop; 7, and CS3. Earlier today, I found a download on the Adobe site for a free copy of CS2. The...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Want Small Utility to Start with, or just after Ubuntu

    Excellent; that did it. Curiously, however, the vlc command in terminal output many hundreds of errors like this:



    These errors are in "theme.xml", a file that was "created using the VLC Skin...

    Re: Brick walls with Wine

    Interesting. When I found the 3 incidents of wine-1.7.1.tar.bz2, I used Catfish to search for '1.7.1'. Among the results of that search, there was a directory that I decided to open after I...

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Want Small Utility to Start with, or just after Ubuntu

    Hi, Mr. Fuller!

    Thanks for your response. I appreciate the clarification on Dash. As much time as I spend in Settings Manager, I don't remember giving Session and Startup much more than a glance,...
  14. [SOLVED] Want Small Utility to Start with, or just after Ubuntu

    I am very new to Ubuntu, so I may be missing something very obvious. I've read a dozen or more solutions to this issue, but I haven't found one that solves it for me yet. I'm using Ubuntu Studio...

    Brick walls with Wine

    I've been using Ubuntu Studio 13.04 for less than 3 weeks. A fair amount of that time was spent trying to grow accustomed to GIMP. I'm past disliking GIMP; now, I don't have neither desire nor...

    I'd like to install an ecommerce solution called SixBit in Wine. When I do, I get an error most of the way through the install: "The wizard was interrupted before SixBit eCommerce Solution could be...

  18. Re: Possible conflict between my desktop, and Kate

    Thank you.

    In turn, I'm sorry that my dissatisfaction falls short of your standards.
  19. Re: Possible conflict between my desktop, and Kate

    That's a great way to put it, and I agree. I also have the possibility of getting a familiar editor/IDE to run in Wine, but I want to avoid that whenever possible.



    That's another good point
  20. Re: Possible conflict between my desktop, and Kate

    Dang! Right you are. I know the term IDE, but it's not yet part of my vocabulary. After this, it'll become a lot more so. I don't know why I didn't think to search the repository for IDE on my own,...
  21. Re: Possible conflict between my desktop, and Kate

    I've been using a piece of software, NoteTabPro for 15 years in Windows. It is, and long has been highly configurable, and as a result, is tailor made for people who like tinkering with software to...
  22. Re: Possible conflict between my desktop, and Kate

    This sounds like excellent advice, and I believe I'll head in this direction if I feel like Xfce is the source of any unresolvable issues, or if I just can't get as much configuration as I want from...

  24. Re: Possible conflict between my desktop, and Kate

    True enough. With so much new about Linux in the last week, I find that I crave familiarity. I'd like to use similar colors to those I'm used to for my coding.



    That's a thought. I initially...
  25. Re: Possible conflict between my desktop, and Kate

    Truth. This move hasn't been easy from the start. It's an older machine with a CD ROM that's undependable, and BIOS that don't let me boot from a USB flash drive. I asked in another thread for some...
