    Ubuntu 18.04 running slow

    Hello,

    Our desktop computer was starting to get pretty sluggish, so a couple of weeks ago I did a fresh install of the OS (Ubuntu 18.04). Things were better for a few days, but that hasn't lasted....
  4. Re: Atheros AR9271 suddenly stopped working in Ubuntu 16.04

    Thanks - I have no recollection of why ndiswrapper was installed.

    Upgrading to 18.04 fixed whatever the issue was, and I have removed ndiswrapper now anyway.

  7. New laptop - suspected faulty SSD

  8. Re: Our router doesn't want us to video chat

    The firmware is apparently up-to-date. I have a much newer router in the cupboard which I never managed to get working - will give that another go.

  11. Re: Crackling sound on DTS MA and TRUE HD with Asla

    Ah, I was going to suggest checking for dust in the headphone socket - this was causing me to have similar problems recently.

    Does this happen with headphones only/as well?
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Will the 'Contour Roam 2' action camera work on Ubuntu?

    Did you have any luck with this?

    The contourconfig software doesn't seem to work with my Contour+2 camera. It either fails to recognise the camera (although Ubuntu recognises it), or fails to open.

    Is it possible?

    If not, why not?

    Cheers.

    [SOLVED] Re: Couple of problems

    No changes.

    However, this problem doesn't occur when using a wired connection, only a wireless one, so I think it's a problem with the router settings, although I can't find what it is.

    [SOLVED] Re: Couple of problems

    Very strange.
