    [ubuntu] Re: Suspended suspend

    As far as I know, 14.04 uses uswsusp as the Suspend. The way I got it to work reliably was to install

    sudo apt-get install acpi-support uswsusp
    Hope that helps!

    You can see in your Resize/Move picture that the minimum and maximum sizes are the same. There will be no permitted size change in sda5 as long as that full lvm is in effect, and it is currently...
  6. Re: Partitioning problems with 14.04 using gparted live, can't shrink partition

    [ubuntu] Re: Downloaded software won't action exe file

    The .exe files are Windows-specific, and are not executable by Linux systems unless you are using WINE. You need to download a different file, one with the file extension .deb

    [ubuntu] Re: NOT ENOUGH SPACE in Boot

    Oh, and PS: At one point Ubuntu was not including Synaptic Package Manager by default. Don't worry if it isn't there, just go to the terminal and type sudo apt-get install synaptic.
