    I think what everyone is missing is that he wants to install Ubuntu on his new laptop but the only way he has to connect to the internet is with a USB dongle which has a Win installer, so he thinks...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Can I copy & paste Wine and Virtualbox into Ubuntu while in Windows?

    Am I right in assuming your fixation with Wine/VB is because you want to make the .exe installer work so that you can get your USB stick to connect to the internet via Ubuntu? If so, that WILL NOT...

    It is possible to create an Ubuntu image with certain software preinstalled, but it's far more complicated than the method you are suggesting. Even if you did manage to get the installer working...

    [gnome] Re: User switching in version 16.04

    It is as you say in 16.04 (Gnome Shell 3.18) and also seems quite slow to log in/out in general. It doesn't bother me personally because I never switch users, but I imagine it would be quite annoying...
