    [ubuntu] LiveCDs fail on Averatec 3715-EH1

    Currently running Ubuntu 9.10 on Averatec 3715-EH1. Due to end-of-life for 9.10, I want to upgrade. I strongly prefer to see a LiveCD work before committing to wipe the current disk. Previously ran...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Remote Desktop Login to gdm after remote restart

    I know of no reason the other machines can't be set to autologin, but I didn't know that was an option.

    Wouldn't that be a (small) security risk, auto logging in instead of a user/pw?
  3. [ubuntu] Remote Desktop Login to gdm after remote restart

    I maintain plain vanilla Ubuntu 10.04 systems for several friends. Each machine has only one user, the owner. I use Remote Desktop to instruct and to perform maintenance. Here's my problem:

    After...

    [ubuntu] LiveCD Login Screen Too Big

    I have an Averatec 3700 laptop. I like to see a LiveCD run before I commit to an install. Ubuntu 9.10 LiveCD works fine. Ubuntu 9.04, 10.04, and 10.10 LiveCD present login screens that are too large....

    [ubuntu] Print Server on a Desktop Edition

    I have several Ubuntu desktop systems behind a router. I have a USB printer attached to one of them. The printer works great from the desktop system where it is plugged in. But I would like to print...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: External 1394 HD automounted in 8.04, but not 9.04

    The drive now works.

    The problem was the connection at the back of the box. The socket is recessed slightly and not every cable makes contact. I found one that does, and the drive immediately pops...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: External 1394 HD automounted in 8.04, but not 9.04

    Booted from the 9.04 LiveCD. Ran "sudo fdisk -l"

    It reported only the primary hard drive.

    I tried various combinations of plugging in the 1394 drive before and after powering it on. No joy.

  8. [ubuntu] Re: External 1394 HD automounted in 8.04, but not 9.04

    "sudo fdisk -l"

    Only the primary disk, the /dev/sda group of partitions, shows up.
  9. [ubuntu] Re: External 1394 HD automounted in 8.04, but not 9.04

    Thanks for the response.

    I tried that. No joy.

    I'm beginning to wonder if the 1394 connector or system on the new machine is bad. Anybody have any thoughts on how to tell? I don't have a second...
  10. [ubuntu] External 1394 HD automounted in 8.04, but not 9.04

    I installed 8.04 on a desktop in the spring of 2008. Since then I've been using a 1394 Lacie 300 GB hard disk for backups, manually powering it, plugging it in and invoking rsync. I bought a new...
  11. Re: What is your killer Windows app/ app you simply can't be without in Linux?

    I've tried to switch a lot of people to Linux, and managed for a few. The "game stopper" is nearly always the same: Quickbooks and Turbotax. People who see their computer primarily as a business and...

  13. [ubuntu] Howto? Print from wireless laptop to USB on Desktop

    Seems like this should be simple, but I've found nothing that says how to do it. (Please point me if I've missed it.)

    I have a desktop running a fully current Hardy. It has an HP F300 series...

  15. [ubuntu] Cold Boot Works, Warm Restart Fails after Critical Updates

    System has been working fine. Just took today's updates, mostly about dbus. Now system will not warm reboot. It hangs right after shutting down the firewall. A power off, power on, cold reboot works....

    Thanks to Alexander Larsson at Red Hat, I now have more information. Alex is evidently the author/maintainer of gvfs. Here is an old thread with quite a bit of info:

    [ubuntu] User can access file, root can't?

    I thought there was NOTHING root couldn't do. Can somebody please shed some light on this "Permission denied" matter?

  21. [ubuntu] Re: unable to open files list file for package `mktemp'

    Just to close this out, I got it "fixed."

    Somehow /var/lib/dpkg/info/ lost some files. The mktemp.list file was missing entirely. I managed to recover it from a backup, and that got me past the...
