  1. [ubuntu] Re: Ways to declutter font menu? Including removing foreign fonts

    If you find unwanted fonts that can't be removed by Font Manager, it's probably because they are write protected and hidden in directories in /usr/share/fonts. You can remove them by brute force,...

    [ubuntu] Re: wired connection disconnected

    Problem solved. I use a powerline network adapter (ethernet over powerlines) because my house isn't wired for ethernet and wireless routers won't reach to through the entire house. One of the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Brasero does not work in 12.04 64bit ...

    Installed k3b and it worked beautifully "right out of the box". 1 minute, 45 seconds to copy a 58 minute audio CD.True "plug and play". It's nice to know some people can get it right.

    Likewise, Brasero no longer works like it used to. It only recognizes one drive and it won't read faster than 1.4x. These are brand new drives and the old Brasero would read CDs at more than 20x. ...

  9. [ubuntu] Re: Disc drive UUID = xxx not ready yet or unavailable

    Back again. Used liveCD to run e2fsck. No errors or bad blocks found. Ran e2fsck -f -y -v anyway and no problems were found and nothing was fixed. Rebooted from hard drive with same 5 minute boot...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Disc drive UUID = xxx not ready yet or unavailable

    Having squandered a lot of time without getting anywhere, I have to ask a really dumb question. What is liveCD, where do I get one and if I can't get one, how do I make one?
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Disc drive UUID = xxx not ready yet or unavailable

    Not sure I understand what to do. (I'm still a newbie at this so please be patient.)

    If I understand you correctly, the first thing I need is a live CD. This is something I don't have, so it's...

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Disc drive UUID = xxx not ready yet or unavailable

    Here's more info. In order to test out the BIOS, I uninstalled the hard drive and replaced it with another hard drive running ubuntu 11.04.

  14. [ubuntu] Re: Disc drive UUID = xxx not ready yet or unavailable

    I'm back. Tried to repair MBR from newly created install disc but couldn't find any boot repair utilities on it. Downloaded boot-repair-disc iso file and burned to disc. Ran boot repair utility...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Disc drive UUID = xxx not ready yet or unavailable

    Oh, oh! I did something very bad. I tried to use the boot repair program and now what I get on boot is simply "grub" and beep beep beep beep beep beep. (Obviously my MBR is totally hosed at this...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Disc drive UUID = xxx not ready yet or unavailable

    Let me try to address all your questions.
    First, I went ahead and deleted the /dev/scd0 entry in fstab, so that is done.

    Second, I don't recall upgrading to grub2 except after upgrading to...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Disc drive UUID = xxx not ready yet or unavailable

    I noticed when I executed

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Disc drive UUID = xxx not ready yet or unavailable

    I executed the commands exactly as you wrote them. (I even copied and pasted them into the command line.) Here are the results. As you can see, it updated grub to grub2 in the MBR, but there is...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Disc drive UUID = xxx not ready yet or unavailable

    Ran Boot-Repair, no change. I notice that I have Grub legacy in the boot sector of sda, and Grub2 in the "boot sector" of sda1. sda is the only hard drive on the system. sda1 is the ext3...

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade problems

    Right now, it's too late to try that. After a couple of fruitless attempts to fix gnome and a couple of reboots, the update manager popped up and asked if I wanted to upgrade to 12.04. I said yes...
