thank you for the information how how and were to look for help
Not sure if this has been addressed in this post somewhere. For problems related to Grub and booting, it would be helpful if the user ran meierfra's boot info script right away and posted the output, although I'll let the webmasters ponder if it will be a hog on the database.
Thanks for this post. Especially the links to categories in the opening post. I know where to go to get help with keyboard support on my laptop now. (http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=332)
That's a great link to this thread in your signature line.
Thanks you for the advice and have a bowl of popcorn on me.
Thanks a lot! it will surely help rookies.
Great idea. It is my opinion that it is rarely necessary to quote posts in their entirety when responding!
Thanks. It's helpful.
This is great and I'm going to have to study it in much greater detail. My particular gripe with Ubuntu as a whole is that when it's working it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. But when it breaks, finding the solution to the problem is nearly impossible. What's needed is a central help index using good programing technique, that is, branching. For example: General problem (hardware/software), specifics (wireless/touchpad/printing), make/model of computer, etc.
A glossery of commands and an explanation would be helpful. I've done lots of programming in BASIC and some in Fortran and the commands "make sense." But "sudo" or "lshw"? Sorry, I'm lost.
If you want to know what a command does, you can type "man command" into a terminal to view the manual on command. (e.g. "man sudo")
