    [ubuntu] Re: Prefered Rich Text Editor in Ubuntu?

    I had the same problem and found one, so far: FocusWriter (at gottcode.org).

    It's terrible I cannot use Ted, it seems to disappear somewhere after installing the .deb, never to be found again,...

    [ubuntu] Re: No Internet After Karmic Wubi Installation

    Just to cheer you up :twisted:, I just did both an update, then a fresh install from CD (dual boot), and got no internet at all, not even repository access. The console ping command works, and that's...

    Same problem on an ASUS desktop: no network/internet access, be it cabled or wireless, but for console ping. No e-mail, no browser, no repository access. Both with a lenghty upgrade, then a fresh...

    Re: Stay away from 9.10 !!!!!!!

    There seem to be mixed experiences here.

    Mine is that, even with a clean install, applications that need to use the Internet, and that means repositories too, no longer work, full stop, and that's...

    You don't need a CD to install via...

  15. Poll: Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience

    As I posted elsewhere, I did a 7.10 clean CD install over 7.04. Console ping and ftp worked ok but Firefox and Evolution didn't connect to the servers (two installs). Reverted to 7.04 FF.
