    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 LTS login problem

    I haven't actually looked on an Ubuntu system since 13.04 shot my laptop to hell, but I believe anything in etc/rc.local will run on boot with root permissions. Have you tried putting it there (if it...

    [ubuntu] Re: /dev/sda not able to detect

    Do you need the data on that disk? If the disk isn't physically broken, you might be able to get something going by dd'ing the disk. It will destroy anything left on that disk though.

    [ubuntu] Re: Make an .iso of a decompresed .iso

    Have you tried using Brasero? I don't have it right now, but I seem to remember you could burn to an iso if you so chose
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.04+ boots to BusyBox prompt, no modules loaded

    UUIDs look good from the LiveOS, but I can't do that from the BusyBox because there are no disks. I can't boot into recovery mode either--the same thing happens:I get dumped into a BusyBox without...
  5. [ubuntu] Ubuntu 12.04+ boots to BusyBox prompt, no modules loaded

    Hey all. First off, sorry if this post is a little disorganized. I've been working on this problem for a while and I am quite tired.

    I'm trying to install any recent Ubuntu onto a Thinkpad X220...
  6. Thread: SMTP error

    by chipbuster

    [ubuntu] Re: SMTP error

    How are you changing the settings? Thunderbird should remember it if you change it through the settings page (although if you are doing that, then it's obviously not doing its job).
  7. [ubuntu] Re: "Cannot open: No such file or directory" error

    Yep, just tested permutations of the command and they all seem to check out. Guess I was just crazy back then or something.
  8. [ubuntu] Re: "Cannot open: No such file or directory" error

    EDIT: Apparently, a long time ago, I was an idiot or confused, or both.

    This might sound like downright stupidity from me but....have you tried swapping around the order of the arguments? I seem...

    Understand that you really want help, but there's no need to go bumping old threads.
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Best way to secure yourself when torrenting

    You're not just leaving your IP when you torrent, you're also leaving it basically anywhere you go on the interwebz. Why are you only concerned about protecting it when you torrent? Did you consider...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: What is this amber box and how do I get rid of it?

    Arch Linux w/ KDE and Mint Debian w/ GNOME2 (switching to Xfce when I can). I eventually ended up virtualizing an Ubuntu box with VB inside Arch, but curiously, this bug hasn't popped up for me on...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Help with changing permissions on an external drive?

    Due to corruption on large filesystems, the hfsplus module mounts all HFS+ drives as read-only by default.

    This page provides more information to mount hfsplus drives read-write.

    [SOLVED] Re: transmission doesn't work

    Would be nice to know what you did, for the people from the future.
  14. [ubuntu] Re: What is this amber box and how do I get rid of it?

    Yeah, I think it's a leftover from when you drag your window to the left/right edge of the screen. If you don't let go, sometimes it glitches and the resizing box stays there.

    I found a way to...

    Wait, you're booting into your file browser?? Or did you mean GNOME?

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu recovery

    A downgrade eh?

    Windows installs its own bootloader over Ubuntu's, so I think you'll have to reinstall GRUB from a LiveCD.

    Get your install disk ready, but don't use it yet, because there is a...

    Re: Our Browser Doesn't Suck Anymore

    I'll be honest, IE9 isn't terrible.

    I mean, I love my firefox, but IE9 just isn't a bad browser. It's not like IE 6 (still installed on a computer in my lab) where tabbing is a joke and nothing...

    Re: GNOME 3: Why It Failed

    I think one of the reasons I had such a hard time wrapping my head around DEs when I first entered the Linux world is because I'm still not too peeved by anything. I haven't used any one interface...
  19. Re: What company could top Apple in build quality and market share?

    I honestly think ASUS is starting to get there. They've just moved into the mainstream electronics space, and they're doing a killer job with tablets and laptops.

    Of course, I said the same thing...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is a SSD a mistake?

    My friend has been an SSD user for a few years. From what I understand, their failure rate isn't appreciably higher than a normal hard drive's. Just make sure you're using a quality one from a...
  21. Re: Just in case you wanted to see how much you are saving!

    Windows 8 feels like Gnome Shell with extra slow on top. If I wanted to get that, I'd just install Ubuntu with GS, then put random junk on the system until it slowed down. Voila! Instant Windows 8...

    [ubuntu] Re: Failing to force mount HDD (?)

    Any luck with the fix on that link? Also, can you hear the HDD spinning up?

    I'm starting to wonder if you had a hardware failure if you can't get it to respond at all.

    Methinks that's your problem, although I'm not super-great at this stuff.
