    Re: I broke all the networking.

    I've been struggling with this same issue on a Dell D620. Go back to 14.04 or 13.10 and it will work perfectly.

    The b43 instructions (link below) have always worked for me but in the past couple...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: problems with running live iso from usb or cd on dell d620

    I have a D620. Just keep pressing F12 while booting, then you can select your boot option.

    I recommend Lubuntu because it's light and fast. Full Ubuntu will be too slow on that machine.

    Use...

    [ubuntu] Re: Laptop docking station options?

    My work laptop is a Dell Latitude E6430, and at the office I have the docking station plus dual monitors. I haven't booted Linux while it's on the dock, just a live usb while undocked. -...
  4. Re: Help installing Java in Zorin 6.2 lite live usb

    In case any other newbies stumble across this, all I needed to do was open Synaptic Package Manager and install the icedtea plugin.
  5. Re: 2gb live usb - why would I NOT use all available space for persistence?

    Thanks for that! Some of it is still a bit above my head, but I can google and learn. So I'm assuming I can't boot from a live usb and then perform a full install to that same live usb? Like asking a...
  6. [lubuntu] Recommendation for lightweight "paint" app for Zorin?

    I love the Windows Snipping Tool but haven't found a good replacement for Zorin. Can anyone recommend anything?

    Thanks!
  7. Re: 2gb live usb - why would I NOT use all available space for persistence?

    No I definitely didn't just copy the ISO, I used to program to "install" to the flash drive, but I'm not sure if it's a "live cd" or a "full install."



    That helps a bit more, but I still don't...
  8. Re: 2gb live usb - why would I NOT use all available space for persistence?

    Thanks for your help. I set it to maximum size persistence available (just over 1gb I think), because I figured I use DropBox for everything anyway, so what's the difference? I'll probably get a...
  9. Re: 2gb live usb - why would I NOT use all available space for persistence?

    Thanks for your reply. So how do I go about doing a full install on a usb? I've been using Univeral USB Installer and so far the only issue I've encountered is that I can't figure out how to get Java...
  10. Re: Help installing Java in Zorin 6.2 lite live usb

    Thanks for moving this for me.

    Tried using the Synaptic Package Manager, but no luck - couldn't get it to work.

    The website I need to function is www.ClearSlide.com, which is the screensharing...
  11. Re: 2gb live usb - why would I NOT use all available space for persistence?

    Ahh yes, that makes sense. I already made the mistake of trying to update Zorin, and of course it failed, which is exactly what I suspected.



    That's fine, that functionality is actually exactly...
  12. Re: 2gb live usb - why would I NOT use all available space for persistence?

    Not yet, but I read a bit about it and it's on my list.



    Are you saying that "persistence" is different than a "direct install to a flashdrive?" I'm just looking for Chrome Sync and Java so I...
  13. Help installing Java in Zorin 6.2 lite live usb

    I managed to follow the Java instruction to decompress the archive into a directory, but not sure how to get Java to actually run in Chrome. Any help would be appreciated. I'm trying to make this a...
  14. 2gb live usb - why would I NOT use all available space for persistence?

    Mods feel free to move this if I posted in the wrong location.

    My goal is to use a 2gb flashdrive to have an extremely fast and lightweight installation with Chrome and Java so I can run it on any...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is Ubuntu right for me?

    So here's a question. I've heard streaming doesn't work on Linux? Flash, like watching tv at fox.com, etc.

    Can anyone speak to that?
  16. [ubuntu] Re: cant get write permissions of memory card connected through mobile mass storage m

    You may need special drivers. Download kies mini from the Samsung website (if they have a Linux version) and see if that helps.

    [wubi] android phone not recognized

    The phone charges but I can't find any indication that the computer realizes there's a phone connected. Works fine in windows XP.
  18. [wubi] Re: Questions! su denied? How do I see my ntfs partition? NOOB with Android experienc

    Thanks to both of you, that's great advice. I was told tonight by a friend that Netflix streaming won't work due to drm issues. If that's true I would need to keep a windows install on hand.
  19. [wubi] Re: Questions! su denied? How do I see my ntfs partition? NOOB with Android experienc

    Got'cha, thanks for your replies. Yes, I am only using it this way to poke around before I commit fully to Linux, which I plan to do. ;)

    Uh oh, I'm letting it download and install updates right...
  20. [wubi] Re: Questions! su denied? How do I see my ntfs partition? NOOB with Android experienc

    Got'cha. So it's basically full-fledged Ubuntu, but the installation (and removal) can take place under windows? I can not get inside Ubuntu from within windows, I have to reboot and select it from...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: simple question about partitions and windows

    As someone who is just getting started in Linux I have to say that was SO entertaining to read! Lol. :)
  22. [wubi] Re: Questions! su denied? How do I see my ntfs partition? NOOB with Android experienc

    Thanks! So where did I get gnome from? And a trip back to windows confirms that ubuntu shows up in my add/manage programs list, and there's a 7gb ubuntu directory on C.
  23. [wubi] Re: Questions! su denied? How do I see my ntfs partition? NOOB with Android experienc

    That was my first thought, but I tried it multiple times and it didn't work.

    Will try again with sudo.

    I took another look in my windows file system and I do see an ubuntu directory sized about...
  24. [wubi] Questions! su denied? How do I see my ntfs partition? NOOB with Android experience

    [SOLVED] Re: Where is everything?

    I'm so glad I stumbled on this thread so I don't have to post it myself. I'm an android fanatic so gnome already feels like home to me. I should have checked this out years ago. :D
