  1. [all variants] Re: NTFS defrag / move files to one end of partition

    Thanks - I'll give that a try. The rogue files are not shown as immovable, but they're not fragmented and are stuck in the middle of the drive.
  2. [all variants] NTFS defrag / move files to one end of partition

    I'm used to Ubuntu as a stand-alone OS but would like to install 8.10 (or maybe 9.04) as dual boot on a machine with a 500GB HD that already has XP installed.

    The Windows defrag utility leaves...

    The standard Ubuntu kernel doesn't support wireless on the eee PC. You can install the Array kernel which is modified for the eee PC and other netbooks, but by far the easiest solution is to install...

    [ubuntu] Re: USB suto-mount stopped working

    I inserted a USB stick and for good measure also inserted a CF card in the card reader. Both showed in Places (and the Nautilus sidebar) but didn't auto-mount. I clicked on each of them and they...

    [ubuntu] Re: USB suto-mount stopped working

    Sorry - that hasn't worked either. Do you have to reboot for it to take effect?

    Also, in your first message you have "true" and in the second 'true'. Does that matter?

    [ubuntu] Re: USB suto-mount stopped working

    Thanks for the suggestion, but USB still doesn't auto-mount.

    The strange thing is that I have changed nothing - it just stopped working.

    [ubuntu] Re: USB suto-mount stopped working

    When I plugged them in they used to auto-mount, the drive icon would appear on the desktop and Nautilus would open to display the contents.

    Now they do not mount when I plug them in. They have to...

    [ubuntu] USB suto-mount stopped working

    USB drives and sticks are no longer auto-mounted. They appear in the Nautilus sidebar and will mount if I click on them, and then they work as normal.

  10. [ubuntu] Two small glitches with Acer 5610 + Intrepid

    I've recently done a clean install of 8.10 on an Acer Aspire 5610 to replace 8.04. A couple of things don't work that did under Hardy.

    1. I've set 'Acer Laptop' as the keyboard layout. If I go...

    [ubuntu] Re: cups pdf won't print any file

    There is a fix for this - thanks to zeemor on the Ubuntu-eee forums for finding it.

    The problem is with permissions in /var/tmp. If you set full permissions for everyone in /var/tmp, it all works.

    I don't think that's the problem, and you should be able to extend permissions to Group and Others from the Permissions tab in Nautilus. But the .pdf file is yours so permissions for others shouldn't...

    Re: Intrepid vs Hardy?

    If you are comfortable with Hardy, I would stick with it. Intrepid may offer some benefits but there are no major application updates (e.g. Open Office) and many people have had problems with it.
