  1. Re: 3 Linuxes...want to delete 2... How do I know which is which?

    Thanks for all the responses.

    I did the silly thing, went to Gparted?, in Kubuntu, looked at what I thought was probably Kubuntu, deleted the rest (except Win7) and rebooted, to find that Grub...
  2. 3 Linuxes...want to delete 2... How do I know which is which?

    I've been a beginner for 11 years.

    I'm currently using Kubuntu 16.04 and have no problem with it, except that it seems to delay keyboard entry in Facebook, in that I enter a few characters and it...

    [kubuntu] Dual-screens in Kubuntu 16.04

    Hi,

    I recently upgraded from 14.04 to 16.04 in Kubuntu.

    Dual monitors appear to work well, as before, but I can't drag a window from one screen to the other. It partially appears on the other...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I've posted to this thread at least once before, but I think it needs an update.
    I switched to Ubuntu/Linux in October 2005. I still use Windows for some stuff, but Linux is the OS that handles my...
  5. Upgrade or install 16.04 to separate partition?

    I have Kubuntu 14.04....I've never really wanted LTS, but this happens to be the latest I had on DVD. Can I upgrade to a later version simply. Kubuntu says they will have an update in July. 14.04 is...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I've responded to this thread before, but long ago.

    I have my 10 year anniversary using Linux as my primary OS, in October this year.

    I still use Windows, because my profession has software...
  7. Re: What was your start with Linux, and then Ubuntu?

    Installed RedHat in late 1990s... as an experiment. Managed to get an internet connection. Didn't try again 'til 2001 when I bought a RedHat disk set again at a swap meet.

    October 2005 I tried...

    In Australia, Australia is generally shown at the bottom middle of the map with Europe upper left, Nth America upper right..etc.
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Upper right corner shut down button went missing!

    I just upgraded from Lucid to Maverick and had the power button disappear (not appear) after upgrade.

    Killing the panel fixed it, but it has happened before...probably after last upgrade. Last...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Wireless flakey. Will NDISWrapper fix it?

    I did that when I first got the modem/router, to get a clearer line between my laptop and the antenna. It didn't cause problems in previous releases of Ubuntu, and it's fine in Windows. That's why I...
  11. [ubuntu] Wireless flakey. Will NDISWrapper fix it?

    Hi all,

    Haven't posted or been reading for a while.

    Up until now my Wireless has been flawless. I'm not sure if it's Karmic or my hardware. Hoping NDISWrapper will provide the solution.

    I...

    Re: anybody happy with karmic?

    I was silly enough to delete my Jaunty partition, had the disk in the drive to use Gparted, so I reinstalled Jaunty and upgraded to Karmic and it's smooth as silk....so far.

    Normally I would have...

    Re: 9.10 update didn't work for me

    I upgraded, using the Update button in the Update Manager, and it "just works".

    Your mileage may vary, but with millions of different hardware specs out there, I hardly find that surprising.

    Re: Default Ubuntu Colors HORRIBLE

    When I first tried the Ubuntu LiveCD (Hoary 5.04) the theme was one of the reasons I switched from XP.

    It was refreshingly new.

    I like Xubuntu's blue, but after a while it's boring. The Mint...

    Not correct. As mcduck says, above, you don't get beans for posts in certain sub-forums.

    Re: Windows 7 launch party!

    What, so a FREE release of the not-yet-released brand new Windows was more popular than Linux???

    I mean, even I have a copy of the RC of Win 7, but I haven't installed it yet.

    Re: The New Default Desktop For Xubuntu

    I have to disagree strongly here. I've used Ubuntu on this notebook since I got it, and recently installed Xubuntu-desktop. It's noticeably lighter. My system monitor shows it to be noticeably...

    Re: BBC Tech guru chucks a few at Ubuntu…

    I think that's a point missed by a lot of posters here, and in comments to his blog.

    But, he is using the term Ubuntu as if he's using the desktop version, rather than UNR, and comparing it with...

    Again, agreed. If it wasn't for T&E, the posts would appear elsewhere and would have nowhere to which to be moved.

    The problem with T&E is that there ARE negative threads, to which flames attach....

    Re: ubuntu testimonials are out of control

    I tend to agree with this. I've used Ubuntu for about 4 years now and I'm still a noob. I "get" FOSS a lot better than I did 4 years ago. I understand a lot of the frustrations that new users feel....
