  1. Re: firefox stuck in infinite loop forever creating new blank tabs

    and it did another weird thing a little while ago.
    when you quit it gives a dialog box about how many tabs you are closing.
    I got multiple copies at once of that dialog box.
  2. Re: firefox stuck in infinite loop forever creating new blank tabs

    I saw no malware, it looked like a real thing to me.

    What I did notice, though, is that the address that showed up in the input line of Firefox when I tried to open the shortcut was the location...
  3. firefox stuck in infinite loop forever creating new blank tabs

    This is a recent fresh-install dual-boot ubuntu 14 and Windows Vista.

    While using Windows, I found an intersting URL about something I wanted to install in Ubuntu.

    I saved a shortcut into a...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: HP All-in-one; error while printing, only half a page printed.

    So I still have the same problem, even after attempting reinstall of HPLIP. Is there a way to roll back my printer driver to the previous state, in case what happened is some system file got mangled...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: HP All-in-one; error while printing, only half a page printed.

    On startup, the HP program gives me a message saying it can't detect the system tray, and then force-exits. (though for some reason it doesn't do that every time I boot)

    When I try to print...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: HP All-in-one; error while printing, only half a page printed.

    What's a tray, and why do I fail to have one?
    Also there were earlier error messages about a missing python package and a "System Problem Detected"
  7. [ubuntu] Re: HP All-in-one; error while printing, only half a page printed.

    As far as I've tried it, it works fine in Windows, but I feel more at home in Ubuntu, so I would not want to keep doing the shut-down-and-reboot dance every time I want to print something out.

  8. [ubuntu] Re: HP All-in-one; error while printing, only half a page printed.

    Thank you, oldfred. I tried it. Not quite there yet. Same quit-in-the-middle problem as before. Also the auto install script screwed something up resulting in a bad boot which I had to recover from...
  9. [ubuntu] HP All-in-one; error while printing, only half a page printed.

    So I sometimes send a thing to the printer, and it dies after printing only half a page.
    So far I have only experienced this when I print a thing that has a lot of color, off of a web page. In one...

    [ubuntu] Re: Scanning questions

    It seems that my scanner utility scans grayscale, rather than black/white and I see no setting to reset for that. Is there a good utility for changing the image so it's strictly black/white...

    [ubuntu] Scanning questions

    I just acquired an HP6310 All-in-One printer-scanner and it works. But I am still working out the best ways to use it.

    One thing I noticed, it only scans one side of the page. So if I scan a stack...

    [ubuntu] accessing "notes" files on an ipod

    When I am on the go and I don't want to carry lots of stuff with me, I sometimes do some writing on the "Notes" app in the iPod Touch.

    Then I can send them to myself by email and open them in my...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Grub sends me to limbo after new install

    Thank you. I ended up reinstalling everything clean, since I figured that even if those fixes worked, I wouldn't understand what I had.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Grub sends me to limbo after new install

    thank you, darkod. This sheds some light. But how do I run a bootinfo? Is that something that can be done from within windows? within linux if I could get to it? from a cd-rom? and how do I use it?

  16. [ubuntu] Re: Grub sends me to limbo after new install

    I should add, Thinkpad uses three partitions, one for Windows and two for its system utilities and recovery software. I can create a fourth to run Ubuntu in, but it does not allow the machine to have...
  17. [ubuntu] Grub sends me to limbo after new install

    So I have a dual-boot Thinkpad, with Vista and Ubuntu. I decided to re-install everything because Vista was getting messed up.

    I installed Vista from disks provided. Okay so far. Have Vista...
  18. Re: Two and a half cheers for Ubuntu. Should I stay or go?

    Orange Crate, you misread me. I have exactly seven problems dealing with Ubuntu, as described above. I have an infinite number of problems dealing with Windows, which I only go near when I absolutely...

    pqwoerituytrueiwoq, I tried your command for installing Microsoft fonts, and it went a little wrong. It gave me a Eula, but when I tried to click "accept" it somehow read me as having hit "decline"...
  20. Two and a half cheers for Ubuntu. Should I stay or go?

    I like Ubuntu most of the time, but I am still not sure whether the grass is greener on the other side of some other fence when I feel frustrated by some things.

    Things I like:
    It's Linux.
    It's...

    [ubuntu] files of type .djvu

    I got a copy of the eight-cd set The Complete New Yorker, and as it is, I can read it on my Windows partition [I have a dual-boot machine] with the reading software provided, but I am wondering if...
  23. [ubuntu] Laptops: do I need a hardware-specific battery manager?

    I use a Thinkpad T500, dual boot Ubuntu and Windows Vista.

    I have very short battery life, which I have blamed on a decaying battery.

    But it occurs to me: my OS is a one-size-fits-all distro,...
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Malware suspected after upgrade: new icon on menu bar wants toopen a facebook pag

    Habitual, I typed that command and the terminal output is reproduced below, as you requested.

    It seems entirely possible that I accidentally merely added a URL to the menu bar with an accidental...
  25. [ubuntu] Malware suspected after upgrade: new icon on menu bar wants toopen a facebook page.

    So immediately after running the latest update, I saw a new icon on the menu bar I have never seen before. (I use the "classic" view.)

    The icon looks like a picture of a globe. If you mouse over...
