    [all variants] Nokia X7 and Ubuntu

    Hope this is the right place to put this. Technically a phone counts as hardware, I think.

    I'd really like my Nokia X7 to work with Ubuntu.

    What absolutely must work:

    A VPN is not necessary. I'm pretty sure tools are included with Ubuntu for this type of thing. In fact, here is a guide which you will hopefully find helpful. All those viewing will need some kind of...

    I'm not certain exactly how to do this myself, but have you taken a look at this? I think someone is asking a similar question to what you want there and they've received some helpful answers.

    I should add that the thing from Coova you might need is CoovaChilli. I corrected the link to point to directly that. You probably already realized. Anyway, I also just happened upon this, which...

    [all variants] Re: Wireless AP File Server w/ captuer

    I've never set up such a server as an access point, but I can tell you a few things that might help you.

    First, and really important: be very careful in the wireless card you choose. Most don't...
  7. [SOLVED] Maybe Nothing - Packages Held Back for Worryingly Long Time

    So, I've noticed that...

    [xubuntu] Re: Need help with Xubuntu

    Yeah, sorry, I should've clarified when I edited my post. I suspect ajgreeny is correct; the proprietary Radeon drivers might not be available for your card. I forgot that they did not support all of...

    Indeed it would, though one could use a headset without much trouble. I wouldn't use a laptop as my main phone (wouldn't really be practical to carry around and use it for that purpose), I was just...

    Yes, I have. That's cool and the sort of thing I want to see, but not specifically what I'm asking about. I have a very general curiosity about Linux and phones, but what I want to know about...

  16. [other] Re: Looking for a new laptop (not a noob post, just out of touch)

    Regarding graphics:

    Avoid AMD Radeon graphics cards, their support in Linux is terrible. AMD CPUs are fine, but don't go for Radeon graphics if you want to use Linux for gaming or if you mind...

    This is just a vague memory so just throwing it out there, but I think Empathy has some kind of LAN chat feature. You could also try setting up a...

    The issue is that his wifi doesn't turn back on afterward. Though yes, if you want to download overnight you'll have to disable suspend. Shut the screen off or something to save power.

    Okay, this guide looks promising. You might need to install some kernel headers but hopefully not.

    It recognizes your card, at least. Sounds as though you might need some proprietary drivers for that card, though it's odd it would work in earlier versions of Ubuntu. I'm looking into it, I'll...
