  3. Re: Who is your ISP & what kind of connection are you using ?

    We have Verizon FiOS. Slowest service they offer ... advertised as 50/50 and usually tests a bit over that. Very reliable, seems to stick to standards. Their marketing and pricing on the other hand,...

    [SOLVED] Re: Upgraded CPU, Can't Boot Ubuntu

    No expert on these problems, or even knowledgeable but that has never deterred me before:tongue:. If megaboz2 can get to GRUB, might booting temporarily with nomodeset be helpful? Or could the open...

    Re: pci to parallel port card and Cups

    Hi Jim
    I do not have experience with PCI to Parallel cards but I do have experience with PCI to USB and I suspect compatibility issues are similar. You need to determine

    1) what chipsets for your...

    I'm not a Netflix user but here's something that has helped me in the past with similar issues. Create another user and log in as that user. Try to stream Netflix. If that doesn't work either you've...

    Re: ubuntu sleep/suspend options hidden

    It should be easy to set via GUI, you do have to know where to look .... you know, like Windows. I'm on mainline Ubuntu. Click the upper right corner then the tools icon lower left. Click 'power'...

    Re: Looking for a Laptop

    What's left over or what's cheapest, no matter how non-standard. Hardware that's common makes for trouble free Linux installs, oddball hardware makes for lots of posts on 'help me' forums. I'm a...

    Re: Installing ubuntu on hp dv6 laptop

    I have done what you are doing. The most likely (IMO) problem is that GRUB did not install on your second USB. Did you use "something else" in the installer then specify the correct USB drive and...
  10. Re: I have a bug during upgrading Ubuntu 12.04 to Ubuntu 12.04

    ajgreeny gives good advice. Ubuntu has changed a bit since 12.04. I get along pretty well with 18.04's version of Gnome, not everyone does.

    [ubuntu] Re: Installing Scanner (Samsung)

    I have an earlier version of that Samsung. I didn't have success running the install.sh script. I was successful running the install-scanner.sh and install-printer.sh though. I'm not sure why...
  12. Re: Canonical's statement on i386 clarification?

    I hope Brother is paying attention to this. I've had excellent luck with Brother printers & scanners on Ubuntu. At least some of their drivers have 'i386' in the file name. As long as the appropriate...
  13. Re: Ubuntu does not recognize SanDisk SDXC card

    Sorry for the delay replying. Could you try the card in another machine, perhaps a friend's Windows machine or something? Make sure the card is not faulty. If the card is seen on a Windows machine...

    [SOLVED] Re: Xubuntu 19.04 crashing

    I've had similar symptoms but I think I know the cause. I think it was related to the video on Ryzen APUs. I've been running a few years old ATI/AMD video card because the video hardware in the Ryzen...

    Re: Best laptops for XUbuntu?

    I have 3 Thinkpads, X201, T410 & T430. They were cheap off Ebay, < $120 each. 2 of the 3 came without Hard drives but SSDs are affordable these days and well worth it IMO. I had to return one due to...
  17. Re: Computer hangs frequently at random intervals

    I have a similar setup, Ryzen 3 2200G on an Asrock AB350 board. There were a lot of posts about that board either not booting or hanging. After upgrading to a recent BIOS, most of the problems seem...
  18. Re: Ubuntu does not recognize SanDisk SDXC card

    My thought would have been the same as ajgreeny, exfat but if those two files are already installed perhaps not. If it were me I'd probably try to format the card to FAT32 or ext4 if the card would...
  19. Re: Why change from Windows 10 on a fast desktop ?

    I prefer Ubuntu to Windows, simple. I originally wanted a Windows alternative due to my distaste of Microsoft's business ethics - or lack thereof. I guess I was ahead of the curve, not wanting to...

    It may be too late for you but I had a similar problem with a Ryzen 3 APU, no boot using the APU. I installed a few years old AMD PCI-e video card and it worked perfectly. Just a couple hours ago I...
  21. Re: Are Lubuntu and Xubuntu stable and supported enough?

    The only downside to any of the 'flavors' I'm aware of is that they only receive 3 years support, not 5 years like 'mainline' Ubuntu.
  22. Re: Why do companies throw out good computers?

    I have 3 Thinkpads that were clearly ex-corporate machines. 1 of them came with a wiped HD, One came without HD and one came without HD or caddy and door. It was well worth replacing mounting...
  23. Re: Can (and shall I) upgrade from a Lucid Lynx?

    If no need EXACT on those items, I don't see how. Lucid used Gnome 2 which no one currently supports that I'm aware of. You might come pretty close like Ubuntu Mate but exactly? I doubt it. I...
