  3. [ubuntu] Re: Problem trying to use Thunderbird profile on xp box

    Ruffedgz. Thanks for that. No doubt my mentioning that I had used profilemanager made you think that I am fully familiar with the use of code. Well, I am but a newbie really, having used Ubuntu of a...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Problem trying to use Thunderbird profile on xp box

    You have given me a few things to think about there - thanks. It might take some effort to sort all the possibilities.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Problem trying to use Thunderbird profile on xp box

    It will be interesting to see if profilemanager gives you the same error messages. I used the original folder in xp Documents and Settings and shared it across the network. I did also try creating a...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Problem trying to use Thunderbird profile on xp box

    I have created new profiles. The method used has worked when working with the dual booted xp and Hardy on the laptop. So I am reasonable happy with that method.
    Did you use a single profile for use...

    [ubuntu] Re: grsync doesn't sync firefox profiles

    When you say "link the profiles" do you mean use just one folder containing one profile to use on both machines? If so, that is what I tried to do but profilemanager kept coming up with error...

    [ubuntu] grsync doesn't sync firefox profiles

    I want to use the same firefox profile on my xp box and on my wireless networked Hardy laptop. Firefox -profilemanager will not allow me to use the desktop profile on the laptop. So I had this great...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Problem trying to use Thunderbird profile on xp box

    Like you, I can see the mozilla profiles for both of the dual booted systems. But what I want to do is have a single profile somewhere which will apply to the mozilla software whichever computer I am...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Problem trying to use Thunderbird profile on xp box

    Yes I do have the permission. I think the problem must be with the profilemanager not accepting files from a networked computer. But how to prove this and how to get round the problem.
    It works if I...

  13. [ubuntu] Problem trying to use Thunderbird profile on xp box

    My files are located on an xp desktop which is also used as a file server for my laptop which is dual booted xp and Hardy. I am trying to use a common profile for Thunderbird based on the one located...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Just installed a program but can't find it!

    To tidy up this thread.
    Having read the manual, I managed to get the program to work - ie it took my desktop out of its sleep mode.
    But then, with some help from another thread, I made an icon for...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Just installed a program but can't find it!

    Thanks guys. I have been able to find the manual and readme files which do make some sense. But as a lifelong Windows user it does take a bit of sorting to use a terminal - ie finding all the...
  16. [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Just installed a program but can't find it!

    I bet this is a very silly question but please bear with an ignorant newbie.
    I have just installed a program - wakeonlan using Synaptic Manager which now confirms that it is installed. How do I run...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Can't see xp pc on network - help please

    Just to finalise this post. The problem was caused by xp on the desktop. Despite having switched off the Windows firewall and checked it a number of times, I found that it was still active on the...

    When using my laptop on the network, I would like Thunderbird to use the profile located on the xp desktop I use as a file server. But when trying to make a new profile in profilemanager, the...

    Well, I too have used Windows all my working life( since 1993). Now I am retired there is time to have a look at Linux. I installed Ubuntu Gutsy then Hardy and have only a couple of months...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: [SOLVED] Total frustration - sharing files with xp

    As you say Victormd, I only installed smbfs and that did all that was necessary - including sharing the printer attached to the xp desktop.
    In retrospect, I am annoyed that Windows firewall should...

    Re: Howto: Dual boot very easy file sharing

    It looks as though Hardy comes with this facility installed by default. Simple file sharing has been set up so that I can see files on my xp desktop from the ubuntu setup on the laptop. The laptop is...
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Total frustration - sharing files with xp

    The problem is solved - whooppee.
    XP was the cause. There was a conflict between the antivirus software and the TCPIP system which needed a fix to be downloaded and applied. But there was also a...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Total frustration - sharing files with xp

    How unsmooth can you get. There appears to be a problem with NOD firewall effecting the xp TCPIP setup. So far the laptop can see the desktop and access shared files in xp but the Hardy os on the...
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Total frustration - sharing files with xp

    At this moment it seems that the problem was with the xp setup on both the desktop and the laptop. Each of them has now been clean reinstalled at significant time loss. But even that did not fix the...
  25. [ubuntu] Re: Total frustration - sharing files with xp

    Good morning (or is it good afternoon) Victormd. I am currently in the final stages of reinstalling xp on the laptop - the desktop has already been done using Acronis TrueImage. This latter wouldn't...
