    [ubuntu] Re: Weird Warning that my hard drive is full

    I've fixed this in my tutorial by adding

    grep -E "(image|headers)"
    This limits it to packages starting with "linux" and containing either "image" or "headers" in their name. This makes the dry...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 and WPA2 router

    It's possible that the Linux driver for your wireless card only supports WEP. You should be able to see what wireless chipset is used on you laptop by entering the following terminal command:

  4. [ubuntu] Re: Wireless won't activate after coming out of sleep/lock.

    I think it's telling the power management system to re-initialize the wifi card when you resume from sleep. But that's just my best guess.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Wireless won't activate after coming out of sleep/lock.

    The following has worked for me on previous versions of Ubuntu and Linux Mint. I haven't loaded 12.10 onto my laptop yet, but it should work.


    sudo touch /etc/pm/power.d/wireless

    After that...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Resume issues from Ubuntu 11.04-12.04LTS AMD64

    Since you mention that you have problems when it's been suspended more than 20 minutes, presumably it works if it's been suspended for only 10 minutes or so. This makes me think that it might be...

    [ubuntu] Re: RE Sizeing Photographs

  16. [SOLVED] Re: Alternate Install Partition Manager: How to Access?

    OK, I'm guessing it's partman that is used by the alternate CD. It can be found in the ubiquity package.

    sudo apt-get install ubiquity

    Then launch with

    sudo partman
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Alternate Install Partition Manager: How to Access?

    cfdisk is another option, although I don't have experience using it. It should already be available on your system. Don't know if it has all of the options you mentioned though.
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Alternate Install Partition Manager: How to Access?

    I'm not sure which partition manager is used in the alternate install CD, but GParted is an easy graphical one to use. You can install it with
