  2. [SOLVED] luckyBackup permissions problem - permission denied(13)

    I'm trying to do a backup using Ubuntu v10.04 LTS on a Dell laptop & the "luckyBackup" program. I'm having a problem that I don't understand.

  4. Anybody else stopped using their favorite music player (Audacious) since v12?

    In Ubuntu v10.04 LTS, Audacious became my favorite music player. However, when I was forced to move to v12.04 LTS, I discovered that Audacious had lost its "scale" function. That meant I couldn't...
  5. [all variants] Re: How can I mount the truecrypt flashdrive file system as read/write?

    Well, I finally got back to this. I did as instructed, and created a new directory named "/media/flashdrive". With a flashdrive inserted, it becomes "sdc" on my Ubuntu v10.04 OS. I entered the...

    Is it possible for a hacker to monitor the medibuntu activity, and spoof to try to take over or exploit the connection for their own purposes?

    Re: Use of scripts?

    I like that definition, point of distinction, between programs & scripts; that, the bulk of the application logic doing the actual work is elsewhere. However, I still think that in order to be...
  10. [gnome] Re: Ubuntu v12.04.2 Gnome Classic - why can't I tweak colors?

    Thanks, kansasnoob! I've bookmarked the page, for finding when I go use the v12 OS.

  11. Re: Presenting a Ubuntu-based distro with MATE desktop

    Copper Bezel: Aha. I understand. Then, perhaps the best advice is to be patient? Prep the distro, keep it maintained, groom the DM & DE (refining, etc.) and wait? If MATE really is as good as he...

  14. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 10.04: Anybody else having trouble since linux-image-2.6.32-47.109?

    Thanks for the advice, but this has become a moot point for me. I over-wrote the Xubuntu v12.04 installation with a Kubuntu v12.04.02 installation. TrueCrypt worked perfectly there. Then,...

  16. [gnome] Ubuntu v12.04.2 Gnome Classic - why can't I tweak colors?

    I've been getting frustrated, trying to make the Gnome "Classic" look like less of an eye-sore, since I installed Ubuntu v12.04.2 LTS. Sure, it's got 3 or 4 available themes - but, they're virtually...
  17. [gnome] Re: Full desktop customisation arrives in GS3.6 - Finally!

    Will this work in the Gnome "Classic" under Ubuntu v12.04.2? If yes, are there any known bugs?
  18. Re: Presenting a Ubuntu-based distro with MATE desktop

    I'm not the legal expert here, re. trademarks, copyrights, etc., but couldn't you just forget doing an entire distro and release Mate as just a desktop manager / DE option for adding, selecting use...
  19. [xfce] Re: Xfce - How to Launch Shotwell & Download Images?

    I'm far from being an expert, but I had a thought about this. Is it possible the failures are happening when some other particular program is running? Like, conflicts, or resources being tied up?

    Hi! Much of this is over my head, but I did read all the posts... Anyway, I had a thought about this:

    "medibuntu" sounds like it's some kind of medical program. However, checking in Synaptic, it...
  22. [SOLVED] TrueCrypt can't mount a 2nd partition under Xubuntu v12.04 LTS

    I've relied on TrueCrypt for a long time, and it's performed flawlessly under Ubuntu v10.04 LTS. But, since the forced switch to Xubuntu v12.04 LTS, I've run into a problem, I'm sure the difficulty...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 10.04: Anybody else having trouble since linux-image-2.6.32-47.109?

    Ahh... I was wondering when that deadline would slam down. That explains the lack of updates lately. So, they hustled out one last (seemingly defective) kernel update before cancelling support?

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu calculator missing memory button??
