    Re: From Raspberry Pi to Ubuntu hardware

    I was looking at that one, I think for now I may leave it and see if my mate who works at a computer shop has anything come in. For gear like that, there has to be a way of getting one with a broken...

    Re: From Raspberry Pi to Ubuntu hardware

    Haha, thanks. Yeh, the best would be something like the pi but with an atom instead of an arm cpu. I just looked on the pi site, where are the tech specs on the new site???

    Re: From Raspberry Pi to Ubuntu hardware

    Thats an interesting idea. So are the Atom chips x86 arch? are all of them x86? I was thinking a little Atom of some description if they work. That particular item has a fair bit for postage, and...

    No worries, the core API (the one you want for syncing) is here: https://www.dropbox.com/developers/core - This includes some basic tutorials etc, then you just need to look at the calls etc...

    Re: From Raspberry Pi to Ubuntu hardware

    I have seen that. Its for uploading files, not syncing them. I actually created a sync program in python, but the api (at least the python one) has soooooo many bugs! Not worth using.

    From Raspberry Pi to Ubuntu hardware

    I am currently getting a raspberry pi set up as a server, and have come across a few things that I think would work better on a full desktop install of Ubuntu. For example, there is no dropbox...
  16. Re: Installation and live ubuntu fails on new computer

    OK, problem solved! I won't go into all the details of how I found this out, but trust me, DISABLE YOUR ONBBOARD GRAPHICS! For some reason, even if your card is set to default in the BIOS, ubuntu...

    Re: Dreamweaver alternative for coding, ftp etc

    OK, but it means in Bluefish you need to find and load the project file every time you swap between 2 projects! That ridiculous! If I want to find some code I used in a different project, I don't...

    Re: Dreamweaver alternative for coding, ftp etc

    Hmm, seems Bluefish seems like the way to go. How do you go about swapping between projects (or are you only ever working on the one project at once)? I would be keen to see bluefish put in some kind...

    OK, for now the shutdown thing is minor, and I won't bother about it until I can sort the ACPI issue. From what I read, its a far greater issue than the wireless not working, as it can mean fans etc...

    Re: Not loading on sony PCG-7QCP laptop

    Yeh, the memory isn't filling up anyhow (not that I have done much), its more the CPU usage. Not spending any money on this craptop anyhow.
