  1. [ubuntu] Re: Installed latest updates now wireless and Samba not working

    Same here. Wireless networking on my laptop under 8.04 is borked following the 6.18.08 updates.

    The network config applet works on it for awhile, then asks for the network key (which until the...

    Wow, thanks for all the speedy responses. I suppose I'll try the Wine route first, mostly because it's free. Thanks, folks.

    [other] Any way to "clone" MS Word?

    I've finally made the switch, and my old laptop is more stable, more responsive, and even runs cooler than it did under Windows. In short, I'm extremely satisfied with my first Linux experience.

    [ubuntu] Re: Weird Firefox amnesia

    Fixed. I'm not sure about the details, but apparently the default Firefox profile was looking for my preferences/cookies/etc. in the wrong place.

    Solution:

    [ubuntu] Re: Can see, but can't access, WinXP network

    Another wrinkle: I figured, since I can finally access the network by using the IP, I'd try to set up my network printer, which is hooked up to my WinXP desktop.

    I started up the "add new printer"...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can see, but can't access, WinXP network

    I can confirm that entering the server's IP address works. Any ideas why we can't identify the root problem if such a simple workaround does the trick?

    [ubuntu] Re: Permissions getting annoying.

    Thanks, that last bit will be damned helpful. It was getting annoying, when I didn't know precisely where a file was, to find it in nautilus and then have to open a terminal. Anyhow, problem solved....

    [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Permissions getting annoying.

    I've had to edit more than a few config files to get this rig running with 8.04, so I've gotten somewhat used to the terminal commands necessary to edit a file. But if I navigate to a file in File...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can see, but can't access, WinXP network

    Yeah, I've had way too many problems with 8.04, but then again, I have no idea how many of those are owed to my screwy hardware rather than Hardy.

    So nobody's worked out yet why some of us can't...

    [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Weird Firefox amnesia

    Running Hardy, Firefox 3b5 is doing some really odd things. First, it's not paying attention to my cookies. When I go to my Google homepage, I'm greeted by the 'login' page. Yahoo mail and the Ubuntu...

    I can't even get that working. It tells me it "failed to mount the Windows share." The network works properly when I dual-boot into XP, so I don't think I've configured the Windows computers in any...

    [ubuntu] Can't install ndiswrapper.

    This should probably be in Absolute Beginners -- hell, all my posts should -- but here goes:

    I can't install ndiswrapper as per this thread because during the installation it asks for my Hardy CD....
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Broadcom Wireless Setup for Hardy (Step by step)

    OK -- Im apparently an idiot. Trying to install ndiswrapper either through a terminal or Synaptics calls for my Hardy installation CD. I provide it, press Enter. It asks again. I press Enter. And so...

    [other] Alternative to Ubuntu?

    This may be the wrong place to ask this, but it looks like my laptop simply isn't going to run Ubuntu.

  25. [ubuntu] Re: Can't resolve squat with ethernet under 7.10
