  1. [ubuntu] Orientation (landscape/portrait) wrong on ASUS Transformer T102HA

    I recently acquired an ASUS T102HA "Transformer" 2-in-1 computer. I managed to put Ubuntu 18.04 of a USB stick and get this machine to boot Ubuntu (live/try) from the stick, however...

  2. apt-get install git-all FAIL.

    I was hoping to help out and hack together a small enhancement or two into one particular open source application, and then contribute my code changes.

    The project in question is hosted on github....
  3. Printing eBay/Paypal shipping labels -- no workie (from 16.04 LTS desktop & Firefox)

    I'm using 16.04 LTS.

    Am I the only one who has had problems printing eBay/Paypal shipping labels?

    The story is simple: I log in to eBay, using Firefox (58.0.2) and I request to print a...

    [ubuntu] Firefox 59.x?

    On January 30th, TheRegister reported that Firefox 56.x, 57.x, and 58.x contain a "critical" security flaw, and that all users are advised to update to 59.x immediately. That was around eight (8)...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Proper way to update/patch Ubuntu and also... Whither Firefox 59.x?

    Thank you TheFu, for at least taking a stab at answering my questions.

    You didn't notice, but I actually am using apt , rather than apt-get. (See the post that you were replying to.)

    I guess...
  6. Please, oh please, Forum Gods, change my displayed name back!

    Arrrggggggg!

    I haven't logged in to these fora for a LONG time, and had to reset my (forgotten) password. That was done successfully, but then I was confronted with a page asking me to enter all...
  7. [ubuntu] Proper way to update/patch Ubuntu and also... Whither Firefox 59.x?

    I confess to being a mostly naive Ubuntu user. I've been using it for some time, but not often. I'm far more familiar with other (non-Linux) systems, but I've been using Linux/Ubuntu more and more...
  8. Re: Where/how to get up-to-date ffmpeg onto ubuntu 16.04 desktop ?

    As I mentioned, the specific files that I personally am working with are actually MPEG-PS, not MPEG-TS. (But that's a small detail.)

    Anyway, I do agree that the evidence suggests that this...
  9. Re: Where/how to get up-to-date ffmpeg onto ubuntu 16.04 desktop ?

    Sorry. Yes. I misspoke. The files in question are MPEG-PS containers.



    Yes! That's what I got... along with some insulting, absurd, and meaningless error messages telling me to "fix your...
  10. Re: Forums display name change request

    Nevermind. Upon further consideration, I have decided to withdraw my request for a display name change entirely.

    If I had known beforehand that such a seemingly simple request, for such a...
  11. Re: Forums display name change request

    Excuse me, but I guess I am stupid.

    Can you please explain to me how "Carpe_Pecuniam" violates rule #6, exactly?

    P.S. If I had requested a screen name of "Count De Monet" (a character from the...
  12. Re: Where/how to get up-to-date ffmpeg onto ubuntu 16.04 desktop ?

    Sorry. It am not allowed to do so. (In fact I have been warned not to do so by a forum admin.)



    Yes! As I mentioned, I did indeed end up running some tests with a static binary of 3.0.2, and...

    Please change my forums display name to one of the following (in preference order):

  14. Re: Where/how to get up-to-date ffmpeg onto ubuntu 16.04 desktop ?

    Thank you very much for your detailed and precise explanation. I shall certainly be attempting to follow your instructions to the letter as soon as I have finished migrating my system to the SSD I...
  15. Re: Where/how to get up-to-date ffmpeg onto ubuntu 16.04 desktop ?

    This just isn't going well at all.

    So I used the Ubuntu GUI file browser, found the .deb file I previously described, and clicked on it. This brought up the stock Ubuntu software installer.. I...
  16. Where/how to get up-to-date ffmpeg onto ubuntu 16.04 desktop ?

    Please excuse my ignorance which, I confess up front, is abundant.

    I have Ubuntu 16.04, and I've already installed a binary for ffmpeg 2.8.6-1ubuntu2. (Please don't ask me exactly how I got this...

    Re: Opera install no workie (?)

    You talkin' about Firefox now, or Opera?

    Well, anyway, the answer is the same in both cases. Nope, I didn't activate anything unusual in either case.

    Thanks everybody. After seeing the first response, I went ahead and installed gdebi and then used that to install the opera .deb file. That seems to have worked rather better, however...

  19. [ubuntu] Re: Default install partitions? What the heck is this sda2?

    Right.

    Next install, I'll be doing that.

    Four may be enough for oatmeal cookies, consumed in one sitting, but for disk partitions, not so much.


    P.S. Now that USB3 flash drives are...

    Opera install no workie (?)

    I downloaded the file opera-stable_36.0.2130.65_amd64.deb to my freshly installed Ubuntu 16.04 system and then double clicked on it, which brough up the Ubuntu software installer. I then clicked on...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Default install partitions? What the heck is this sda2?

    OK. I get it now. So sda2 is just a container containing sda5. Understood. Thanks. Now it all makes sense.

    P.S. It's kinda too bad that the "Disks" GUI thingy doesn't show (and apparently...
  22. [ubuntu] Default install partitions? What the heck is this sda2?

    I'm not really all that well-versed with Ubuntu, so please forgive if this is an FAQ.

    I just now installed 16.04 onto a 16GB USB3 flash drive. That all went well, and I've already installed some...
  23. Re: Enabling rlogind on Ubuntu (14.04) desktop?

    Sorry. Following up on myself... I need to say "NEVERMIND"

    Just for laughs, I just tried to rlogin to my Ubuntu box and was totally shocked when it just simply worked.

    I'm not kidding. You...
  24. Enabling rlogind on Ubuntu (14.04) desktop?

    Sorry. This is kind-of a newbie question, I know, but I googled around awhile and could not find any good clear answer.

    I have a couple of boxes on my local network that are well and truly behind...
