  1. [ubuntu] Re: Wiped Windows partition while installing Ubuntu. Next?

    Thank you.

    I've ordered a copy of W8.1 retail and will install that. I thought about trying to rescue stuff but really the only nuisance is the hours of saved game progress that are now lost. I...
  2. [ubuntu] Wiped Windows partition while installing Ubuntu. Next?

    I have managed to wipe my Windows partition while installing the latest release of Ubuntu (v14.04). I've had my HDD split in two with both Windows 8 (updated to 8.1 Update) and Ubuntu and dual-booted...

    Re: Ubuntu Linux or Windows 8?

    The touchpad isn't listed in settings. Common problem as I've discovered. Several hours of faffing about with this, that or the other solutions listed online and I got nowhere.

    As for the...

    Re: Ubuntu Linux or Windows 8?

    I'm dual booting between Win8 and Ub13.04 and, despite myself, I prefer Win8.

    I play games on it a lot. I listen to music via it too as I just can't get Ubuntu to remember to use the subwoofer...

    Re: Bye Bye Ubuntu

    I've just come back to Ubuntu after a period away and now dual-boot with Win 8. I have to say that I'm not impressed. Win 8 boots faster, loads applications faster and everything works. Ubuntu is...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Unable to access UEFi and some BIOS settings on Dell Inspiron 7720

    Thanks again Oldfred.

    I've got both OSes running although there's a few Ubuntu issues to sort. Tinny sound, touchpad, no additional Nvidia drivers etc etc. I'll leave it all for now and just...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Unable to access UEFi and some BIOS settings on Dell Inspiron 7720

    Solved it. It was me all along! Using the Dell link above I set up a boot option for the DVD drive. What I didn't realise is that I needed a DVD in place at the time for the BIOS to add a third...

  9. [SOLVED] Re: Unable to access UEFi and some BIOS settings on Dell Inspiron 7720

    That's just it. In the General/restart/advanced settings 'page' I don't have the UEFI button.

    Also, when in the BIOS I have no options for fast boot, the intel thing and faststartup. Are they all...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Unable to access UEFi and some BIOS settings on Dell Inspiron 7720

    Thanks all. Oldfred, I'd seen your help on other threads and tried most of the advice. I still can't get my laptop to see the DVD at boot. I've got too much on to waste any more time on it. I'll come...
  11. [SOLVED] Unable to access UEFi and some BIOS settings on Dell Inspiron 7720

    Hi,

    I upgraded to a Dell Inspiron 17R SE (7720) a few months back and recently decided that I was missing Ubuntu.

    I've download 13.04 and done all the necessary. The DVD didn't load but I was...

    Re: Amnesia on Steam won't launch.

    Actually found another cure. Simply uncheck the Enable Steam Community option.

    Launcher worked a treat after that.

    In trying to get a game working with Steam I messed around with all sorts of commands for PPAs and wound up with an issue affecting Jockey.

    Basically, the list of drivers has been...

    Thanks for that. Is this a new thing? I never had to do it before unless mounting my windows partition.

    [ubuntu] Asking for password when playing a dvd

    HI,

    How can I stop 10.4 from asking for my pw whenever I first insert a cd, dvd or connect my phone?

    Is it something to do with Authorisations which now appears to have vanished?

    Many thanks.
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Two volume control icons in notification area

    Sorry to bump this one but I'm having a similar issue. Mine differs in that I occasionally get two network manager icons instead of one plus the volume applet.

    Any ideas?

    Re: What was wrong with your 9.04?

    There's nothing all that wrong with my 9.04 that'll make me upgrade any sooner than Xmas.

  21. [ubuntu] Re: Browsing is so much slower in Ubuntu than with Vista

    Right. I've tried safe mode, Epiphany, Swiftfox and updating to FF3.5

    Still much slower than FF3.5 in Vista! I'm stumped.

    Any more suggestions?
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Browsing is so much slower in Ubuntu than with Vista

    I've tried it and it's also subject to slowness with my current problems. As Swiftfox suffers too I'm guess that the 'dodgy' add-on route may be a dead end.
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Browsing is so much slower in Ubuntu than with Vista

    You're spot on about how it was faster. I've not added anything to Firefox for months. I'll give the safe-mode a try though.
  24. [ubuntu] Browsing is so much slower in Ubuntu than with Vista

    For approximately the last two months my browsing experience has been very slow. Pages take ages to load and stuff like Youtube clips are unwatchable.
