  1. [ubuntu] Re: Server: Realtek Wireless USB receiver not working

    cd is the command for changing into a directory. My guess is "driver" is a directory on the driver disc (probably contained in the same directory as the .sh file). Before executing the .sh file, cd...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Server: Realtek Wireless USB receiver not working

    Unfortunately, the default setting for executable files in Ubuntu was changed recently to automatically open in a text editor. Fortunately, you can change that.

    Open Nautlus (the file browser) by...

    Re: Ubuntu 14.04.1 - Swap out GUI Desktop?

    Bashing-om's answer is right on the money.

    We could give you more helpful suggestions if you told us what you're looking for. What is it about the default GUI you don't like? Do you need...

    Re: How do I put Ubuntu on a crashed machine?

    Lots of great suggestions so far. With the several mentions of using an installation USB or CD, it's worth noting that for recent versions of Ubuntu, the .iso has been too large for a traditional...

    I agree with JKyleOKC. A beginner might be fine with server edition, but if his hardware will support a desktop environment (even a lightweight one), it will probably be more comfortable for...

    Yes, but from the sizes, it looks like the one being labeled "Unusable" is the one Windows is calling D:.

  9. [SOLVED] Re: Xubuntu: Removing Thunar Removes "xubuntu-desktop"?!?

    That's what makes metapackages special. When normal packages are installed, their dependencies are marked as automatically installed, so that when they're no longer required as dependencies, they...
  10. [ubuntu] "Applications can no longer access your account"

    [ubuntu] Re: How install Google Drive in Ubuntu 14

    There isn't one. Ubuntu used to have their own cloud drive (Ubuntu One), but when they discontinued it, I switched to Dropbox. I've had no problems with it.

    Re: problem with Back In Time

    Is there a reason you want to use Back in Time? Deja Dup has a much simpler interface. Of course, it's your choice.

    I don't have experience with Back in Time, but it looks to me like you haven't...
  13. [lubuntu] Re: 14.04.1-desktop-i386 - turn off display auto blocking

    I assume you're referring to screen lock, where after the machine is idle for so long it asks for a password.

    If so, see the post here. ...

    Re: Can I upgrade without a cd

    The fact that you called it 14.04.1 makes me think you were already in 14.04. If that's the case, nerdtron is correct. Point release upgrades are handled automatically by the Software Updater.

    As bapoumba said, you need to look at what packages are in that ppa. This one contains two: fontconfig-infinality and freetype. I would venture a guess that what you're looking for is a font...
