    Re: What would cause my computer to do this

    If you would provide hardware and software information there is a better chance of someone with a similar setup helping find the problem.

  3. Re: Where are Nvidia drivers stored and how to update them?

    Have a look at this list which is an advanced search of the tutorial section for threads with nvidia in the title.

    Re: What changed during the latest 3 years?

    Google's successful Linux based telephony has helped secure our desktop's future IMO.
    Also, if anything, it will help Unity OS phones because governments will want technical/economic diversity.

    Re: Anyone tried Fedora 21 Gnome?

    It looks as though i was mistakenly treating the freeworld rpm apps as plugins when i last looked at
    RPMfusion causing package conflicts, because now freeworld apps work as i hoped they might.

    Re: What are the most helpful Android forums?

    Although new to Android, i can see XDA is a well developed site but AndroidForums is worth visiting too, for their hardware specific subforums.

    I doubt this is a new bug, unique to 14.10.
    Would you give the size of both of...

    A pair of card readers and cards; that should make it a lot easier to identify any problems.

    Hi Robbyx, was it not showing even with storage media inserted ?
    I think only drives with some suitably formatted storage space show in nautilus.
    Fstab requires a declaration of that formatting...

    Re: micro SD problems

    These are my notes - not recently tested though.

    1. Use the disk utility to find the device name and mount point.
    Say they show to be /dev/mmcblk0 and /media/mmcblk0 respectively then :

    Try clicking on Advanced options, change the eye radius to about 62 and the mouse around the eye height for the 4k setting.

  20. [SOLVED] Re: Computer not permanently recognising printer.

    Try connecting a different way.
    If it was wireless or usb before and wired LAN is available, try that route.
    It may need to be set up manually rather than getting an automatic connection though.
