    Re: ubuntu 18.04 as webserver question

    Let's start from scratch. I **believe** you possibly have something awkward in your httpd.conf or an .htaccess or something doing a redirect. Don't worry about postfix or mail right now, PHP has its...

    Re: Another 'back to ubuntu' thread : )

    What programs do you use in the office suite? Outside of Outlook, I've found OpenOffice provides GUI's similar to MS Office, and can be saved in MS formats as well. For Outlook, many people choose...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: how to install printer to scan a document?

    To add to the above, one of the things I **loved** when I first installed Ubuntu was that everything seemed to just work. No futzing about with drivers or fiddling with driver versions. What I...

    Re: this laptop seems interesting.

    And it runs on 8 AA lipos! Not thrilled about the tiny display, but that could solve with video ports.

    [ubuntu] Re: LibreOffice writer problem

    This is likely an important clue. There is some converting going on to get to .doc, and though I'm not experienced on **how** it does that, you might try as suggested, work in native .odt then try...

    [ubuntu] Re: LibreOffice writer problem

    May not be helpful, but worth a try. Open a terminal and test tail /var/log/syslog. This will ensure you can read the log (you may need to sudo)

    Then move the terminal where you can see it while...

    Re: Feedback as a returning Ubuntu user

    I like Evolution for a mail client, it's worth a shot. Integrates with Gmail if you need it, calendars, fairly good support channels. Never liked Thunderbird on any platform.

  10. [SOLVED] Re: Firefox Some Web Sites Kill The OS, How To Prevent That?

    This is not an Ubuntu issue, it is a FireFox issue and I've experienced it off and on for years in Windows and Ubuntu. There is not a definitive answer that I know of, but I still use FireFox as my...
  11. Re: Consideration for Moving to Unbutu - Need Advice

    Video editor: Someone here clued me in to OpenShot which is very robust but much more simple and intuitive than Final Cut Pro. I invested in and installed Final Cut Pro and it is over the top for...

    [SOLVED] Re: Can I install Ubuntu in my PC

    ^^ That is what I did. I maintain two drives, the Windows drive is more or less storage, almost never go back to it.

    Alternatively you can run Ubuntu directly from the disk (CD/DVD) to test it...

    Re: another app i wish i had

    Sounds like a fun project . . . my first thought would be to integrate ImageMagick as it has tons of filters and options that may identify the characteristics of one image against another.

    Re: Do you watch movies regularly ?

    We refuse to pay for cable and have a digital antenna, so outside of a classic B/W here and there the only movie watching we do is on Netflix. Never come close to using up our bandwidth and we use...

    Re: Database Web app

    I think you're likely to have to use a VM or Wine to find a way to develop VB or .net in Linux/Ubuntu. These are proprietary MS languages. Technically you could in something like NetBeans and tweak...

    Monetizing web sites alone has been dying a slow, flaming death for years now. But all hope is not lost. Your best bet is cross channel marketing (that is probably not the right name for it.) By that...
