  1. Thread: Wine Onenote 2013

    by T.J.

    Re: Wine Onenote 2013

    Welcome Kasydo.

    You are having a problem where a Windows function is not implemented by Wine. I'm sorry to say that Wine is not perfect, nor does it implement all of Windows yet. I would not...

    Re: "Being open source is killing Android"

    Agreed. The phone makers add more crap with each new generation because they need to force people into buying new and faster hardware to keep their profit margins and market share. The ownership is...
  3. Re: Upgraded to DEVELOPMENT BRANCH and freaking out

    Qill is quite correct. The DEB packaging system is not designed for downgrading, so the best method is to reinstall. It is possible to force the issue using a technique known as "apt pinning", but...

    Could you post the associated build log please?

    In the meantime, please make certain that you have the header and compiler installed. These commands should make sure that they are installed for...

    Re: Debian 8 jessie doesnt connect to wifi

    That is why I suggested the install disc with additional drivers. The decision to include or not include a particular driver was not my doing. The sarcasm is understandable, but not helpful. Use...

    Re: Common HOME directory for 2 distros

    There is no need for a separate home directories, or even separate installations if you are using the same distro release, say for the sake of discussion: 16.04. Ubuntu Mate 16.04 and Lubuntu 16.04...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Booting into Ubuntu on a dual-boot Ubuntu/Windows machine with an infected USB st

    Probably, although I would not recommend it, simply because some of the new forms of USB tampering can overload and damage the PC as soon as you plug in the drive. If you are certain that it is just...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Will reformatting a USB flash drive destroy any viruses on it?

    Yes, and no.

    If a USB device has had its firmware tampered with, reformatting the data area may have no direct effect. The odds of that kind of tampering are not impossible, although I would...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Can a malware-infected Wine reveal information about my network?

    Yes, in theory, because even regular user accounts have access to TCP/IP data. If you did not, you would not be able to connect at all. When you are running Wine, you are essentially translating...
  10. Thread: Choosing Hardware

    by T.J.

    Re: Choosing Hardware

    I do not think it would make a huge difference, except to make sure that your graphics chipset and wireless adapter are supported. Of course, that can be said of Windows as well.

    [ubuntu] Re: QEMU/KVM Gaming VM on Ubuntu 16.04 help

    Thank you. That is quite all right. As I said earlier, I am more tolerant of old threads, and I am happy to discuss this with you at your leisure. That said, in the intervening time, I have moved...

    Re: As an IT Professional.....

    I've found that using Linux alongside Windows boosts problem solving.

    I have used a number of different operating systems (including Windows, Linux and others) during my 25 or so years in jobs...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Difficulties getting multi-monitor with Ubuntu 16.04.1 and nVidia GeForce GTX 550

    Because the default Ubuntu installation is not tested for cases involving two different GPUs, you may have a few initial problems, especially if the integrated controller is a different brand or is...
  14. Re: Failure to download extra data files (ttf-mscorefonts-installer)

    For myself, I ported over Debian 8's installer package, and replaced Ubuntu's in my workstation as it was faster than debugging 16.04's. The Ubuntu package has download problems related to...

    [SOLVED] Re: Backport of kdepim/kmail ?

    Well, if you want my advice - which you are free to absolutely ignore - if you want a stable KDE, you should use Debian 8, instead of Kubuntu. I'm not criticizing Kubuntu, rather I am simply...
  16. Re: replying in forums space bar stops working. is this ubuntu related?

    Same problem. I have a suspicion that it is a JS bug of some kind, created after trying to patch that big security hole. For that reason I do not use the quick reply any longer. I would much rather...

    Re: X.Org 1.19 Released?

    I could - theoretically - as I have built X from source many times over the last 20 years. That said, if your goal is to remove tearing, you should try to enable full compositing in your xorg.conf...

  19. [SOLVED] Re: Cinnamon crashes on login after upgrade to 3.2 on Ubuntu 16.04

    Global settings are purged. Personal settings are kept in your folder. You can contact me via private message here on the board, then we can talk about email or whatever.
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Cinnamon crashes on login after upgrade to 3.2 on Ubuntu 16.04

    You're welcome.

    Your settings are in hidden folders in your home holder, so they are not touched in a purge.

    Aptitude is the Debian advanced package manager. It's like apt-get on steroids. I...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Cinnamon crashes on login after upgrade to 3.2 on Ubuntu 16.04

    It's ppa-purge, I believe. You may actually have to install ppa-purge manually - best to check. Personally, I prefer Debian so the help I can offer is limited in this respect. I have 16.04...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Cinnamon crashes on login after upgrade to 3.2 on Ubuntu 16.04

    I do not want to seem rude or unhelpful, but any time you use a PPA archive, you are doing so at your own risk. The code may not have been compiled properly or even be stable to begin with. It can...

    [ubuntu] Re: Not your average DVD can't play issue

    If you can play unencrypted DVDs normally, but not commercial ones, it is because you are probably lacking an up-to-date CSS decoder. As I mentioned before, I cannot help you with that. In some...

    I'm sorry, but as far as I know, no one on the forums is allowed to help you with this. The terms of the board prevent it.
