I cant believe this exists? Are you guys in Beirut?
I thought im the only one using Linux in Lebanon ! :P
anyway, its so sad, Im having problem installing Ubuntu on my Laptop, I kept asking questions here and there for 3 days now with no luck at all, so I decided to search for proffesional help... I called 3 computer maintance companies in leabanon w all of them told me they dont work with Linux !
so my question is, where can I find prof ppl to help me setting up ubuntu on my laptop in beirut?

Dear Perito

Ji i already sent you an email i don't know if you receive it .

yea i did
thanks for the email,
I solved the sound problem by installing Fiesty and Installing Alsa.
The sound never worked on Gusty whatever I did (I reinstalled gusty 2 times and tried to get it work but it didnt)
does anyone know why is that? how come sound works fiesty but not on gusty? Im doing the exact SAME thing!

i had the same problem and i realized finally to install this

sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules

and it fixed the sound problem of course on gusty.

Hi there,

I'm a member of Lubuntu, an official Ubuntu variant that uses LXDE as the default DE instead of Unity.
I may visit Lebanon soon and I'm looking forward to meet people there :)

If someone will read this, please send me a private message and let me know how can we meet when I will be there.

I'm ready to help and support anyone over there, not only meet them and make new friends :)

Please reply ...
