    [all variants] Discharging activities

    Hi there.
    I'm currently testing my battery, and I was wondering if there was some long but ultimately useful activity (the equivalent of Windows' defrag or chkdsk) for it to work on while it's...

    [ubuntu] Re: LibreOffice/Thesaurus

    I should add that for me the file downloaded as a .zip file (I have no idea why, as the link goes to a .oxt file) - I had to rename it to .oxt to install it.

    [kubuntu] Dolphin downgrade?

    I recently upgraded to Precise Pangolin LTS Kubuntu, and noticed that Dolphin no longer has a ¨Column View¨, as it did before (and yes, I've read the developer's blog post and understand why). I...

    That works very well, thank you.

    So, same problem?
  6. [SOLVED] Flash player freezes on memory request

    Hello. I daresay I'll be told that I should take this up with Adobe, or I'm in the wrong forum. But I thought I'd check here first before having to join another forum and make up another novel...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    Oh, well, I suppose I can turn my HDD partition into a live USB like I did with my flash drive.
  8. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    No, just "\", and the swap partition.

    After deleting "quiet slash" leads to a few lines saying (in order)

  11. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    Starting "Recovery Mode" leads to a wall of text similar to normal (assuming flash drive boot is "normal") boot up, but stops at listing external HDD details. It then changes to "Busybox", saying...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    Right, think I've figured out what the menu is- embarrassingly, I have not until now noticed "GRUB VERSION...etc" at the top, so presumably this is the Grub menu I've seen mentioned around the site. ...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    The pink menu is white on pink, and lists Ubuntu, Ubuntu (recovery mode), XP, and some other options I think. GIve a minute to check...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    OK, there's no separate option for "USB HDD", but it seems the flash drive gets priority over it anyway. When I boot the HDD, I get the pink boot menu mentioned earlier, and selecting the Ubuntu...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    Here we go... (also I'll probably be offline for the night in a few hours, so don't get mad if I stop responding.)
  16. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    As I said, I'm a very new newbie (though I do have a smattering of knowledge), but wouldn't that be the same as selecting it manually using the boot menu?
  17. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    Sorry about that; I disconnect the external one on start up to make sure that by "USB storage device" I'm specifying the flash drive rather than the installed copy on the external.

    (Note that the terminal said ""gawk" could not be found, using "busybox awk" instead.
    This may lead to unreliable results.")

  20. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    Incidentally, I just tried running it from USB stick, and it's fine. Could this be to do with the manual partitioning I did? I set it to use ext2, using "/" as a mount point.
  21. [ubuntu] Re: [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    Let's see...apparently my model has an Intel GMA 950 chip, does that answer your question? However, the graphics were fine during the installation.
  22. [ubuntu] [Newbie] 11.04 will not start after install

    Hi, I'm new to Ubuntu (as in, literally this day) and I have a problem. I installed Ubuntu to my external hard drive from USB stick, and the install went fine- however, when I try to boot from the...
