  7. [SOLVED] Re: Lubuntu 13.10 Live USB has suddenly stopped booting

    It was the Casper-rw file. I replaced it and the USB re-booted, although I lost settings it was OK.

    Thank You!
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Lubuntu 13.10 Live USB has suddenly stopped booting

    How to restore the Casper? I tried (Before even seeing your reply) copying Casper from my USB to my friends USB (and removing his). These USBs were supposed to be identical so I could run mine and...

  11. [SOLVED] Re: Sabrent 802.11G PCI card runs at 802.11B speeds

    I have tried everything above in the order they appear, and tested after each. Manually changing the speed changed the display in Terminal to 48, but the GUI still said 11 and the speed did not...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Sabrent 802.11G PCI card runs at 802.11B speeds

    No go. It still doesn't work correctly. How do I install newer driver? Same commands with version numbers changed?
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Sabrent 802.11G PCI card runs at 802.11B speeds

    In this cae that is simply not true. The manufacturer of this card lists Linux in it's adverts,has Linux drivers on it's web site, and has the word Linux on the box the card came in! They can't say...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Sabrent 802.11G PCI card runs at 802.11B speeds

    I did everything you said and I still have the problem. Even though I had said in my original post I had tried it with ufw disabled, I tried it again. I thought that the default configuration of...

    I installed a Sabrent 802.11G (aka Realink RT2561/RT61) PCI card in my Dell Optiplex 745, which is running Ubuntu 13.10 (dual boot with XP). I bought this card specifically because they advertise...
  17. Re: Dell V-310-V510 printer installation error

  19. [SOLVED] Re: I want to turn off menu hotkeys in 13.10

    One more update: I did some further reading and experimenting and found that ESC once it is set to Meta is pretty much the substitue for Alt. The trick is that while Control and Alt are held down...

    Have found at least a partial solution. I had been reading in books to use the Alt key to move the cursor while editing in bash. I finally thought of looking at the man page for bash, and found...
