    By the way, did these forums get rid of the "thanks" button? I want to click on it! There needs to be some way to give positive reinforcement to community supporters.

    [ubuntu] Re: Please help; system keeps locking up.

    Thank you all for responding. I've been using Ubuntu long enough to feel like I know what I'm doing -- until something goes wrong. I still have a Mac OS 9 sense of how to fix things. (Step 1: fiddle...

    [ubuntu] Re: Broken reinstallation, can't fix itself.

    I think the problem was that I originally installed google desktop from google's repositories. I gave up and reinstalled everything again. So much for my high scores in the robot game.

    I switched this week from a dual boot system to 100% Ubuntu (yay!), but in the process of reshuffling partitions, wound up reinstalling Intrepid from scratch. Fortunately, I had backed up my...

  21. [ubuntu] Re: Can't get wireless card to join protected networks

  23. [ubuntu] Re: Can't get wireless card to join protected networks

    It doesn't seem to be working, but I think I may have installed it incorrectly. I'll look at the directions carefully and try again and see if that works. Thanks.
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Can't get wireless card to join protected networks
