    From the information people have given in this thread, I understand that new releases of Ubuntu will not be bundled by the wubi installer because Windows 8 doesn't like the...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Support for Ubuntu on Windows XP file system?

    The word "wubi" does ring a bell... I'll follow the lead you've given me and get back soonish.

  5. [ubuntu] Support for Ubuntu on Windows XP file system?

    Hello people.

    I currently lack the money I need to upgrade my Windows OS to 8 (or whatever) and have decided instead to stick exclusively to the Ubuntu 12.04 OS installed as a dual boot option....
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Would like to install Netbeans, Open JDK 7

    Some things have changed a bit. I've decided that it was too complicated to install Netbeans 7.2 in Ubuntu 10.4, so I decided to upgrade Ubuntu to 12.4.

    After upgrading Ubuntu, I noticed that my...

    [ubuntu] Why not POP?

    I am trying to configure Thunderbird to act as my Gmail client.

    Why can't I choose POP as an incoming mail server type?
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Configure Ubuntu PC to alert DynDNS of IP change.

    Thank you. I believe I understand what has to be done. Actually, I deliberated shortly after writing my message that there should be no problem alerting DynDNS from a machine inside the network...
  13. [ubuntu] Configure Ubuntu PC to alert DynDNS of IP change.

    From what I've been able to understand, I've got a Thompson TG585v7 modem/router, and I must supply the IP assigned from my ISP to it whenever it is reassigned by DHCP to DynDNS so it can point my...
