    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrading from 11.04 to current.

    I was thinking over the options, and a little puzzled about the thing you said about "wait for 13.10 to come out", when duh! Dawn breaks on Marble Head (that's an old New England saying). I had...

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrading from 11.04 to current.

    If I may jump in on this, I too have been running 11.04, but on an Acer Aspire One netbook, and had decided not to upgrade until I got a new machine; but what can I say? The phone/convergence thing...
  3. Re: Software Center fails to download, blames internet connection

    I think you are mistaken. It may be that the 11.04 version will try to download a different gthumb version from the 12.04 - for instance, I downloaded the Ubuntu UP clock for 12.04, useless though it...
  4. Software Center fails to download, blames internet connection

    I know it's hard to diagnose, but on both my netbook, running 11.04, and a laptop running a live 12.04.2 I am failing to download any software from the Software Center. It says to check my internet...
  5. Re: Startup Disk Creator not finding 12.04 download file

    Ok, maybe it was just bad luck, but when I went to (shudder!) Win7 and downloaded it via pendrivelinux, it worked fine. I am now testing the resulting usb-live version of 12.04 on my little netbook,...
  6. Startup Disk Creator not finding 12.04 download file

    I have been using Ubuntu for years and years, and wanted to create a 12.04 lts live usb for a friend to try. I have downloaded it three times from the Ubuntu site, but when I launch the Startup Disk...

    [ubuntu] Re: Evolution mail notification

    The sound notification is what I particularly want. The setting indicates that it thinks it is doing an audio notification, but it isn't. Any ideas?

    [other] Re: Daap and ipod

    Bump again! I just got an ipod touch and noticed that Rhythmbox says it can "manage" an ipod via DAAP. I have set it to share, but still no recog of the ipod in Rhythmbox, and no noticing of...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Could not display "network:///". Nautilus cannot handle "network" locations.

    Ok, I don't want to be a curmugeon, but my network ting was working fine in nautilus, until today! This is ubuntu 10.10 - so what happened? There was a system update today that I installed, but I...

    Re: kernel update

    Thanks, randiroo, I decided to go to that PPA page and downloaded the generic 2.6.37 package. clicking it brought up the installer, as promised, though it was not Synaptic as I thought it would be....

    Re: kernel update

    I hope it's okay to jump in here. The reason I would want to update my kernel (I'm running 2.6.35-24, Maverick) is because I read that I can get support for my Acer Aspire ENE multi card reader if I...

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Aspire One AO532H Ubuntu Support

    I too am dual booting mine with its original Win7, but I never go there any more - might have to wipe it and get the space back.:) Anyway, I started with 10.04 live on usb, which worked great right...

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Aspire Mic Fix?

    Thanks, jazzman, it worked exactly as you said, and being able to download a relatively small package like that was very encouraging. I wanted to stay within the Ubuntu way if you know what I mean.

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Aspire Mic Fix?

    This (ie post #21) is the most hopeful solution I've seen in this thread - but I'm reluctant to install kmix: it looks like it needs me to install the whole basic KDE stuff, and I don't want to do...
