    [ubuntu] Re: NFG with questions

    The easiest thing for you to do will probably be the following:

    1. download an Ubuntu installation package from the Ubuntu website. For example, download Ubuntu 12.04 32 or 64 bit install package....

    There are some settings you can try changing within Firefox to see if it helps the situation.

    in Firefox navigate to Edit > Preferences > Content

    you'll see Fonts & Colors section. You can...
  3. Re: Are there Amazon Links I can use to support Ubuntu?

    Thanks for the links Mike and Castro!
  4. Re: Are there Amazon Links I can use to support Ubuntu?

    What is a trolling attempt?

    Your post is pretty ignorant. What does my advocacy for Ubuntu Users being able to control the comings and goings on their computer have to do with this post being...
  5. Are there Amazon Links I can use to support Ubuntu?

    I've read about how Ubuntu is incorporating Amazon results in Dash searches to make money. I know of lots of websites that simply provide a link that one can click to get to Amazon.com. Then any...
  6. I never use the Dash (especially for internet stuff)

    I keep seeing on blogs how there's all this increasing internet activity in the Dash.

    Personally, I don't care for this. If I want to do something online, I open a web browser. A web browser has...
  7. Re: Being hacked a traumatic experience (Mat Honan recounts)

    I think most of the blame lies in Gmail and Amazon and Apple.

    Gmail should allow users to NOT have a recovery email. They should offer NO password recovery option. Perhaps have password recovery...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: What will stop working if I uninstall "ubuntu-sso-client"?

    I use the software center to browse for software (but I usually install it via terminal once I get the name).

    Uninstalling SSO will only affect Software Center's ability to write reviews and cloud...
  9. [ubuntu] What will stop working if I uninstall "ubuntu-sso-client"?

    I don't use Ubuntu-One. I don't maintain an account on Software-Center either because I am constantly hounded to login every time I boot.

    Can I safely uninstall these applications:...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: ubuntu causing burn-in (but Windows doesn't)

    The "ghost after-image" continues to show even after reboots. So I consider it Burn-In. If you do more searching on the internet, you will find that Burn-In does occur even when it can be...
  11. Being hacked a traumatic experience (Mat Honan recounts)

    video: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2012/08/mat-honan-video/

    Articles available at Wired. Definitely motivates one to invest in security.

    My heart goes out to Honan. And a big thank you as...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: ubuntu causing burn-in (but Windows doesn't)

    not all burn-in is permanent, especially if it isn't left on screen for days and days. Using a white screen can rememdy burn-in that is present but hasn't gotten to the permanent stage yet.

  13. [ubuntu] ubuntu causing burn-in (but Windows doesn't)

    Got two laptops, identical models. I got Windows 7 on one, Ubuntu on the other.

    One thing I've noticed is that the one with Ubuntu always suffers from burn-in on the LCD screen (I thought LCDs...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Why am I SOMETIMES asked for my password when updating?

    I'm still not clear on this.

    If I go into Update Manager and change Automatically Check for Updates to NEVER, will I continue to be alerted when new updates are available for download and install...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Why am I SOMETIMES asked for my password when updating?

    So how do you make it tell you updates are available? Does it just happen automatically when you disable update manager? Or is there a setting I need to switch?

    How do you "check change logs"? Are...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Why am I SOMETIMES asked for my password when updating?

    but can synaptic check for updates without being started first? like how update manager just appears when there's updates to inform you they are available for download & install?
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Why am I SOMETIMES asked for my password when updating?

    Do you mean the left-hand pane will say "Installed (upgradable)"?

    Does using Synaptic to update necessarily mean that user must manually update? Or is there a way to have Synaptic check in the...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Why am I SOMETIMES asked for my password when updating?

    how do you use synaptic for updates? Do you disable the Software Updater program? Could you describe how to use synaptic to update?
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Why am I SOMETIMES asked for my password when updating?

    Yeah, that does seem like it makes some sense.

    I like to understand when my password will be asked for for security reasons. Because the software updates sometimes ask for password and sometimes...
  20. [ubuntu] Why am I SOMETIMES asked for my password when updating?

    Since I think Oneiric the software update security policy has changed. I no longer have to ALWAYS enter my password when the Updater has updates.

    But sometimes I am still asked for my password. In...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: What services/apps should I remove from a 12.04 installation?

    Re: Chromebook or Laptop with Ubuntu?

    I would get her a System76 or ZaReason notebook with Ubuntu 12.04 and set it so it will only update for LTS releases. She won't have to do anything if you configure ubuntu for auto-updates. Setup...
  24. Re: Google, Amazon, Barns & Noble, or Apple. And now Windows.

    I don't like any of these.

    Kindle is nice but is way to restrictive and proprietary. Plus I MUST register the device to use it. This requirement is ridiculous and I will never purchase it because...
  25. Poll: What OpenPGP SHA2 hash are you using - 256 or 512?

    Wondering what people are using nowadays to sign emails and keys with in OpenPGP if you decided to use SHA2 instead of SHA1. Are you using Sha-256 or Sha-512?
