  1. [lubuntu] after upgrade: "grub-probe: error: cannot find a GRUB drive for ."

    I installed lubuntu 12.04 on this machine, an old Thinkpad T30, alongside Windows XP. Since I can't access Quickbooks through lubuntu, the machine being too slow to run a virtual machine reliably, I...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Driver for Xpress 200M/RS480? Need working for tomorrow!

    Alright, not as important anymore, found info on Unity-2d and gave it a shot, it's working fine, and will do what I need it to (let me look at service manuals). It would be nice to have 3d Unity...
  3. [ubuntu] Driver for Xpress 200M/RS480?

    I've just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my old HP ze2000 (my regular laptop had to be shipped in for service). I need to have this running for tomorrow, for a couple service calls. After the initial...

    [ubuntu] Seperate user for VNC access?

    I've got a headless fileserver running ubuntu 10.04 that I like to be able to VNC into both remotely and from inside the network. Before anyone says anything about security, I'm well aware the risks...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: correct SAMBA permissions do not apply when connected to the server by typing IP

    What version are you running? Might be helpful.

    I'm by no means an AD expert, never had any reason to use it. I'm thinking though AD might be configured to lookup the permissions based on...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: How do I use my laptop as a wireless hotspot?

    I think his router is wired-only, and he wants to use his laptop to bridge from the wifi phone to the router. I'd just go buy a wifi router, you can get a decent Netgear/Linksys/DLink/etc unit at...
  7. BCM4328 wants WPA key at every boot, IPW3945 doesn't

    This is really odd. I've just finished setting up Ubuntu 9.10 x86_64 on my Dell XPS M1530, which came originally with an Intel 3945 card, and then I added a Broadcom BCM4328 for wireless-N and OSX...

    [ubuntu] Re: Broadcom B43 wireless driver

    To put it simply, no. But the driver should be there in 9.04. I actually came across your post because I've just reinstalled 9.04 myself and although the driver is installed (check the Hardware...

    [all variants] gpe-clock killed my audio

    Last night my alarm clock died, so I decided to try out gpe-clock, to see if it'd wake me up. I installed it, set the alarm to go off about 3 minutes from then, and went back to watching a movie with...

    I'm installing xubuntu 8.10 on a friend's fairly old system, and trying to get video working properly. I'm not looking to run compiz or anything like that, just get flash video (e.g. youtube) working...

    Bump! Little extra info, this actually isn't triggered by resume, it's triggered by the lid opening.

    [ubuntu] Re: Is my install messed up?

    You probably need to blacklist the new b43 driver, if you're using ndiswrapper. Otherwise, you need to give b43 some firmware.



    It should be in the multiverse repo, you sure you have that...

    Vista repair utility would overwrite grub in a heartbeat ;) Is vista installed on the 500gb or 750gb drive? If the latter, replace "hd1" above with "hd2". You shouldn't need the version with the...

    [ubuntu] Re: /music directory, good idea or bad?

    you need to use cp -r (or --recursive) to copy folder contents. Add -v (--verbose) too to have each file name displayed as it's copied.

    [ubuntu] Re: Machine wants 'vesa' I want intel

    FYI, vim has a very steep learning curve, nano is a much simpler editor ;) Also, restarting X sometimes doesn't load/unload the video modules properly, that's why I recommend rebooting.

    [ubuntu] Re: Flash Drive doesn't respond.

    I'd say something internally stopped working that linux uses to detect the drive, but windows obviously doesn't. I'd suspect a kernel update or some other update broke it, but you've stated you've...

    [ubuntu] Re: Machine wants 'vesa' I want intel

    Are you sure the "intel" driver supports your hardware? You should be able to install xserver-xorg-video-intel and then just change "vesa" to "intel". If that doesn't work, you can boot into recovery...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: I just spent about 5 hours organizing iTunes, why didnt it transfer to Ubuntu?

    Because iTunes' sorting is stored in a registry key or config file $somewhere, not in the music directory itself. Although you can use the same folder for the library, you're still using two...

    RMA that thing and get a better drive, A-DATA sucks! I had a CF card from them last a little over a month, and it was only used maybe 3 times.

    [ubuntu] Re: Flash Drive doesn't respond.

    Oh, so it's not even showing up in lsusb. Something is very wrong there, I just wish I could tell you what. By any chance, is it possibly a Sandisk drive with the U3 "feature"?

  25. [ubuntu] Re: Does the CD/DVD tray bug also affect 8.04.1?

    Does it work in windows, if you have it installed? If you go into the BIOS as soon as you boot, does it work there? Do you have another drive you can try?
