  1. Re: [xubuntu] FAT32 USB not recognised [solved]

    The only reason I knew about them is I expect exFAT to become more common as flash storage continues to increase in capacity. I too use NTFS when I have a choice though it sounds as though there are...
  2. Re: howto mount an encrypted (android) sdcard on Ubuntu

    I'm certainly no expert but I think that although Android and desktop linux distros share some common bits, there are also substantial differences. I wonder if it's possible to install Android or an...
  3. Re: [xubuntu] FAT32 USB not recognised [solved]

    If you choose to, there are two packages in the repository that enable reading & writing exFAT. They show up in Synaptic if I use "exFAT" as search criteria. I believe Microsoft has locked up exFAT...
  4. Re: Problems installing Brother MFC-J470DW Printer / Scanner

    The install script does not (unfortunately) fix two scanner install problems. One is the 40-libsane.rules which you have fixed, the other is installing some files in the wrong location. That problem...

    [ubuntu] Re: encrypt usb drive

    The tricky part may be encrypting without formatting. If you could copy the contents, format and move the contents back I have what seems like a pretty simple solution. I installed "cryptsetup"...

    I'm not sure if Epson has the same issue but Brother's USB scanner driver will only work with SUDO privileges unless I do this:

  7. Re: Windows install deleted linux partitions. WHY?!?!?

    I ran into an issue with Win7 creating two partitions. I mentioned it here and Old Fred said that Win7 will create two partitions when installing to unallocated space. If you first create an NTFS...

    Logitech Unfying USB dongle issue

    This is more of a heads-up though if anyone has any thoughts I'd welcome them. I've had a Logitech keyboard (K320) that uses the USB receiver that is supposed to support up to 6 devices. I recently...

    Re: weird windows IE experience

    If you're referring to my post, no it was a laser & engraving forum. As far as the source of the malware, I have no idea and that was not discussed.

    There was a thread on another non-linux non-IT related forum about this. There seem to be a couple entities that are annoying a great many people with this crapware. It's apparently not all that ...

    .org is working here, .com is not, it shows the registrar's (or whatever) page still.

    Re: What can Windows do that Linux can't?

    Paying attention when shopping for hardware makes driver support no more difficult than Windows


    I did find one issue that seems to have been resolved with Windows. I've had a Logitech keyboard...
  13. Re: Recommendations for Email clients on Ubuntu

    Don't feel alone. I tried Evolution and had little success with it. If I had taken the time perhaps I could have made peace with it but when Thunderbird was a few clicks away I didn't feel the need.
  14. Re: Recommendations for Email clients on Ubuntu

    +1 on Thunderbird. I believe (though I don't use google so not certain) that the lightning add-on for Thunderbird will sync with Google Calendar. I've had no corruption issues and recent iterations...

  16. Re: Lubuntu -- USB wireless adapter that works

    That's not a bad idea and it wouldn't be necessary to ship 'em all to 3rd world countries. I'll bet there's plenty of kids without home PCs in the U.S. There'd be two issues. One is that hard...

    [SOLVED] Re: exFAT troubles

    For future reference, there are exfat tools in the repository, exfat-utils & exfat-fuse. I installed them once some time ago and they read and wrote an exfat formatted flash drive. I uninstalled,...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Is Ubuntu 14.04 usable with not PAE processors at all?

    I'll mention a non-*buntu distro but works very much like it. SolydXD, which is I think an offshoot of LMDE (LinuxMintDebianEdition) will run on a non-PAE machine.

  19. Re: Lubuntu -- USB wireless adapter that works

    Interesting - the only wifi related modules I see on my machine are cfg80211 and 8192cu, no rtl-anything. But step 1 of troubleshooting is "Does it work? Yes? Then don't mess with it!":D.

    Yeah,...

    Re: advise required please - is it to difficult for us oldies

    It seems wise to explore a bit before messing with a properly functioning machine. Your machine runs Windows 7 so I'm pretty sure it would boot from a USB device. *buntus, linux mint and other...
  21. [Linux Mint] Re: Brother DCP-7055 on Linuxmint 17 not working

    I'm no expert in this stuff. The only thought I've had is - I wonder if there's an error in Brother's instructions. The instructions seem to say copy those 3 files from /usr/lib64/sane to /usr/lib....
  22. Re: Lubuntu -- USB wireless adapter that works

    I'm surprised that it worked without blacklisting the original driver. One sure way to have wifi problems is to have two different drivers fighting to control the same device. You can tell which...
  23. Re: Why is there no Noobuntu for total beginners?

    I doubt that ease of installation is the reason you don't see Ubuntu or other Linux machines for sale at retail in the U.S. Advertising subsidies to OEMs are certainly a factor. HP or Dell recommend...
  24. Re: Lubuntu -- USB wireless adapter that works

    Mike, if you're in the U.S. you should be able to find a Trendnet TEW-649UB which uses the RTL8192SU chip last I knew. You should also be able to make your Edimax work. I have one plugged into a...
