  1. [ubuntu] Re: Problem connecting Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 to Ubuntu 12.04

    I wasn't even using the Toshiba Thrive - when connecting to 12.04 - to transfer files, but rather as part of developing Android apps using Basic4Android, which - for the price - is a pretty decent...

    [ubuntu] Re: Nautilus will not run

    Thank you for your answer, Frog's Hair. I actually found that if I disconnected my external terrabyte drive, Nautilus came back all of its own. Apparently, there's an issue with my terrabyte drive...

    [ubuntu] Nautilus will not run

    I've had a search this evening to see if anyone else has encountered this issue: I can't find any similar instance.

    I'm not fond of Unity, so I'm running Gnome Classic in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I've...

    [ubuntu] Re: Connect Toshiba Thrive to Ubuntu 12.04

    I suppose one could see this thread as sort of an information thread, perhaps.

    Perhaps.

    Further to this, I decided that last error I was getting was due to mtpfs not being installed so I went...

    [ubuntu] Connect Toshiba Thrive to Ubuntu 12.04

    I realise there is a thread with exactly this name - which advice I followed to the letter - but it was for Ubuntu 11.04 and the instructions don't seem to work for me.

    Going over the same path:

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I'm not particularly good at typing long commands either, but highlighting text, copying it and pasting it into terminal is pretty easy.

    I had an issue with getting WiFi to work on my netbook...

    Re: Where Did Netbook Remix Go?

    Dunno - I mean: Canonical can do as they wish... their site, their call, but I still find it odd that not only don't they provide links to the netbook remix but that it really seems like they're...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    That's not a Linux problem, is it? Smith Micro haven't seen fit to develop a Linux version of their software.

    The issue as I see it is that you expect one OS to do it all for you. I don't. I have...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Right. Gotcha. I think. Trying to follow your line of reasoning... failing.

    Linux is the "real Everything I need". Am I missing something?

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Linux doesn't care.

    A unified Linux would be completely antithesis to the whole idea of what this OS is about. Which is what I so *love* about it. Mac people and Windows people go on and on over...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    That's exactly my experience. And it wasn't because I didn't *try* to make Win7 work... found a kludge to set up a persistent connection between laptop and desktop only because Win7 Home Premium...
  12. Poll: Re: Share with the community your Oneiric Ocelot install/upgrade experience

    Thanks Cariboo - I was wondering it that whole tablet-interface idea was just someone's take on where things were going (i.e., with Unity) vs what the Ubuntu team were really trying to accomplish.
  13. Poll: Re: Share with the community your Oneiric Ocelot install/upgrade experience

    Something I don't get. If development in Linux Desktop towards tablets was a direction Ubuntu wanted to go, why not create a special branch for that? instead of subjecting PC users to this...
  14. Re: How Many People Are Still Using 10.04 Netbook Edition?

    Subscribed. Thanks.

    Thing is: people trying to install this from a thumb-drive (USB) were running into dramas - typing help appeared to get the install happening, finally. Once I sorted why my...
  15. Re: How Many People Are Still Using 10.04 Netbook Edition?

    Interestingly, I unwittingly installed L-Lynx 10.04 LTS on my netbook thinking I was installing this netbook remix (thanks for the link: downloading now). Even with the Macbuntu desktop, it's heaps...
  16. Re: How Many People Are Still Using 10.04 Netbook Edition?

    Wonder why Canonical would do that? They have all the versions and flavours back to forever... didn't they want to support this?

    Well, here's 10.10 NE

    Re: Classic gnome is back in 12.04

    Unity evokes the same feeling of change for change's sake as Microsoft's newest office flavour Office 10. No one *asked* for those changes, any more than anyone asked for Unity. Or if they did, they...

    Re: I Deleted Linux but now I'm back

    I didn't *delete* ubuntu, but it sat idle on my laptop for ages because it did not support dual monitors on my laptop: Win7 did. This was a show-stopper for me: I really need that real-estate! The...

    Win7 was getting abysmally slow, particularly in Firefox. And yes, it was the OS that was the problem, because of all the necessary AntiVirus. And people say that virus-makers only target Windows...

    Went a-hunting on the Toshiba site and found that I needed to upgrade my BIOS to the latest version... and now it sees the USB as a drive. YAY! Now, I set boot priority and it is WORKING. :)
