  1. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Ubuntu from usb

    Added by edit: I see Sudodus has posted succinctly while I was slowly pecking away verbosely. Some of this is probably redundant now. That's life. /me shrugs.

    More accurately, you are to use a...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: isntalling ubuntu from usb

    You are wise to be cautious in that circumstance. It SHOULD have been detected. What I would do is:
    1-Back up the present installation to external media with Clonezilla. Or you could use fsarchiver...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Installing 3 linux distros

    About the present installation? No. About the computer? Yes. Make sure it IS 64 bit capable, and make sure you have sufficient hard drive space for your plans.

    I would. Easier that way.

  4. [SOLVED] Re: transfer files between desktop and pantech tablet, how to

    Gonna answer my own post and save some other fool some trouble. Pretty sure the problem is the micro usb connector. The engineer that wrote the specs for those things needs to go into some other...
  5. [SOLVED] transfer files between desktop and pantech tablet, how to

    I got my mom a Pantech tablet (well tablet/phone, but for the moment I don't care about the phone aspect and I can't figure out how to transfer files between it and my desktop via usb cable. With a...
  6. Re: ufw error message twice a minute -means?

    Thanks. That at least gives me a good place to start reading. I'll have to understand this a little better before I'm comfortable with it. If nothing else, it looks like something is wasting...
  7. Re: Reinstall Mythbuntu, save recordings?

    Not sure what your update problem is, but to save your data, the sensible thing is to copy it to some removable media, preferably twice. Then make a data partition on your hard drive and copy them...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Upgrading from 14.04 LTS to 14.10 problem

    There is a setting that let's you have it call attention to any new, only long term new releases, or not at all. Can't tell you where it is offhand since I manage upgrades by a custom script and...
  9. Re: Ubuntu Installation Problems

    Some things to try:
    The standard installer has a self check option. For a while now I've only used the mini.iso when installing from scratch, so I'm not sure how you get to it. At one point it was...
  10. ufw error message twice a minute -means?

    Running Trusty with plain Openbox as DE (like a stripped down Lubuntu), 64 bit.

    ufw is logging messages that repeat twice each minute like this (some substrings substitued as indicated because I'm...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: can't install on other HDD

    ++ on that. Hard to get confused that way. May I offer a slight edit, making explicit a few things assumed or implied and an alternative at one point? [I tried to set off Grahammechanical's lines...

    Re: locating an application

    Thanks, Ajgreeny! That is a supercool resource. I can browse it and learn commands I never suspected existed. Best of the season, to you!
  13. [ubuntu] Re: can't install on other HDD

    I could possibly be mistaken, and welcome correction if I am, but that shouldn't be strictly necessary if you want to use the whole drive. You can just designate that partition to use ext3 or ext4...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: can't install on other HDD

    Added by edit: You can probably skip this as I doubt I wrote anything the faster typists above didn't cover. This was unanswered when I started slowly pecking away.

    More detail is necessary if...

    Re: locating an application

    Let me hazard a guess - OP can confirm or refute if he checks in - given the plural construction I suspect he just means guides aimed at less advanced students, primer level stuff, like the...

    Re: locating an application

    "applications" is a misleading name for that directory. The files in /usr/share/applications aren't the applications themselves but "desktop" files, so called because many people, like you, like to...
  17. odd messages in /var/log/ufw.log

    Running Trusty with plain Openbox as DE (like a stripped down Lubuntu), 64 bit.

    I had /var/log/ open in thunar and noticed ufw.log was growing as I watched. Checking it with an editor shows...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Installed new Video card upgrade and lost 12.04 but Win 7 runs fine

    No. Each bootable system on the machine has its own seperate drivers installed, normally in the "/" partition. Windows probably calls its "/" something else, I forget what, but the principle is the...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Installed new Video card upgrade and lost 12.04 but Win 7 runs fine

    Could be X is hosed. Might just be your graphics driver. Let's try getting rid of the NVIDIA driver. Maybe the default driver is still installed and will take over. Get into a command line enviroment...
  20. confining mouse pointer to focused window

    I'd like to be able to easily confine the mouse pointer (and effects of mouse buttons and the scroll wheel) to the focused window and be able to realease it with a keybinding. There is an old closed...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: How to localize window controls of maximized windows in Unity

    Thanks for the response, Mike. I hope I didn't sound hostile. I've tried most of those also. If you like LXDE, you might want to give plain Openbox a try. It is to LXDE, somewhat like LXDE is to...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Installed new Video card upgrade and lost 12.04 but Win 7 runs fine

    That's a misleading error message. It's saying that because you didn't enter your user name where it asked for login.

    When it ask for login type in your user name and press enter. Then it should...

  24. [SOLVED] Re: sudo command can't find command on root's path

    Thanks, AJ.
    A bash script.

    -rwxr-xr-x 1 me me 4141 Sep 17 04:15 /last/exists
    me@m:~$ Mea culpa. I should have used the -l option above.

    That's it. I confirmed it...
  25. [ubuntu] Re: launch a script in new console window

    I haven't used Nautilus or gnome-terminal in a while and I suspect, though I may easily be wrong, there may be a way to do what you want with settings in the gui dialogue you get when you right click...
