  1. Re: Turn off Windows 7 permissions for ntfs so drive can be shared

    Thanks for your reply, Euroman. You are right about the disallowed characters for MS--I've run into that problem before.

    OK, thanks, if you think it will be more likely to get a response here.

  3. Turn off Windows 7 permissions for ntfs so drive can be shared

    Hi all,

    I'm posting this to Absolute Beginners even though I've used Ubuntu for a while, because this seems like a noob-ish question.

  6. [SOLVED] Re: Nuked spellcheck dictionary when switching from Open Office to Libre Office in 10

    Solved by simply installing:

    aspell
    aspell-doc
    aspell-en
    dictionaries-common
    hunspell

    [SOLVED] Re: Automatic saving?

    That probably won't work well for this case, which involves open files.
