    [SOLVED] Epson SX-435w setup on 11.10 and iPad

    I just got an Epson SX-435w printer (half price at Tesco!:p). Good little machine, small footprint for my crowded desk, and I'm pleased with it so far, but it didn't work out-of-the-box for me (the...

    Poll: Re: What is your age and what do you use ubuntu for?

    60 in 3 weeks 1 day 4 hours and 17 minutes (as though I'm bothered) :D

    I've used Linux exclusively for the last two years (Ubuntu 9.04 at present, great!) for everything, except XXXP for one...
  3. Poll: Re: Almost embarassed to say but "I wouldn't update to Jaunty 9.04 if I were you!"

    Agree with lykwydchykyn: keep your "old" version (8.04/8.10/Fedora, whatever) and clean-install the "new" one (9.04?) as a dual-boot. If you get problems, boot into the old version. And backup before...

    [ubuntu] Re: Install won't run, just get black screen

    Have you checked the md5 sum? and which file did you download - you probably need Ubuntu-9.04-desktop-i386.iso? (Not ...amd64.iso)
  5. Poll: Re: Almost embarassed to say but "I wouldn't update to Intrepid 9.04 if I were you!"

    I downloaded 9.04 last week and installed - completely painfree, working well, no freezes/hardware problems (apart from the inevitable Canon scanner!), and suspend works after the same tweak I needed...

    Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    Possible solution, so stupid you've probably tried it already: I had "driver" problems with a ML-1510, but it turned out not to be the driver at all: try plugging the USB from the printer direct to...

    [ubuntu] Re: No Backlight after Suspend - Intrepid

    Hi, it may not be relevant, but under Hardy (Acer laptop, AMD processor), I had no suspend (or more accurately no resume). I finally got suspend working by going to...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: 8.04 fresh install on Acer laptop - random freezes

    I've got 8.04 on an Acer laptop, too, AMD processor. I have an occasional freeze, where I have to hardboot, too. But I've got a pattern!

    It happens about every third time I run Google Earth, no...

    Hi, Disker: I used the download named ubuntu-8.04-desktop-amd64.iso, burned to DVD as iso. It worked live and as install disk. Good luck!
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Failed Ubuntu 7.10 Installation on HP Compaq 6715b Notebook

    I had very similar problem; I found that 7.10 wouldn't install - kept freezing like you. I have a laptop with AMD64 processor, which I think is the problem: do you get a quick "biosbug 81 found"...
