    Hello all,

    In Windows, I frequently used a hex editor (HxD) which had the ability to access the RAM used up by any given process at any given time and show me the hex code for it. It then allowed...

    That didn't work. I thought it did, but I accidentally copied it to the wrong place. "No space left on drive."

  11. [SOLVED] Re: Mouse not working, worked before, can't determine cause. Possibly xorg.conf relat

    Right, using the LiveCD seems to have spontaneously fixed it. Can't work out why, if I could, I'd know a hell of a lot more about Ubuntu/Linux!

  12. [SOLVED] Re: Mouse not working, worked before, can't determine cause. Possibly xorg.conf relat

    I am unable to unplug, or insert the mouse. Is there any way to 'disconnect' the built in touch pad as far as the OS is concerned to get the log?
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Mouse not working, worked before, can't determine cause. Possibly xorg.conf relat

    Ah, fair enough! What would anybody recommend then for diagnosing a mouse not working?

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Proxy server issue causing inability to install software

    I've looked in all config files I can, nothing.

    Also, if I change the proxy server, and then back to direct connection, it works just for that instance of Synaptic. I can download and install new...
