  1. [xubuntu] Re: Running Ubuntu on desktop. Do I need firewall or anti-virus software?

    A bit of googling suggests that BackDoor.Wirenet.1 is now detected by all the windows av scanners - including I would think, the Linux versions from clamav, comodo, bitdefender, avast etc.

    Removing the 3.2s has solved the problem.

    Still don't know why the original 12.04.2 install put two kernels (3.2 and 3.5) on the machine (both are part of the 12.0.4.2 iso though).

    Possibly...

    [ubuntu] Re: possible virus threat

    Are you using clamav (terminal) or clamtk (gui)?

    Clamtk has PUP/PUA enabled by default. Clamav default scan setting doesn't.

    Re: Lost grub by hitting F8

    I have now tried 'ls' at the grub rescue prompt, and gone through all of the 'ls (hd0.msdosx)' combinations offered. None of them produces anything other than 'unknown filesystem'.

    Have another look at the guide - you need port 53 tcp/udp for DNS. You may also need 67 and 68 udp for dchp.

    [lubuntu] Re: chrome web browser

    Do you by any chance have the default apparmor profile for Chromium set to enforce?
    If so you may need to add a line or two for Chromium 25 - I did.
