    [SOLVED] Re: An Alternative to Swap Encryption?

    Thanks to all for your good advice. As far as hibernation goes, I gave up on that in 10.04 when I couldn't get it to work. For a desktop, "suspend" probably works just as well for shutting things...

    [SOLVED] An Alternative to Swap Encryption?

    Recently upgraded to Ubuntu 14 LTS from 12.04 and have run afoul of the dev/mapper/cryptswap1 bug that has rendered my swap partition unencrypted. (/home is OK) Otherwise, the swap functions as it...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Graphics driver change now boots to terminal; can't access GUI

    Updating to 14.04 gave me a new Grub menu, but allowing it to just boot to the new 14.04 kernal (4.2-27, I think) resulted in the monitor screen shutting down AGAIN. Tried again, but this time...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Graphics driver change now boots to terminal; can't access GUI

  7. [SOLVED] Re: Graphics driver change now boots to terminal; can't access GUI

  8. [SOLVED] Re: Graphics driver change now boots to terminal; can't access GUI

    I'd like to just close this thread and forget about it. I can't mark it "Solved". Quite the contrary, I've managed to totally wipe out all monitor display now. I do greatly appreciate these forums...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Graphics driver change now boots to terminal; can't access GUI

    I apologize; I believe I should have posted this to the beginner forum since I am apparently asking for some basic help with terminal commands that I don't know enough about. Would a Moderator be...

  14. [SOLVED] Re: Kernal Automatic Updates Stopped Working

    Thank you, mcduck. That seems to have worked---with one problem. I'm now back to where I was when I reverted to ver 94 (3.2.0.94 generic) a year ago. The reason I did that was because the ver 95...

  20. [SOLVED] Re: Need Help Writing a Script to Automatically Start VPN

    That works fine. Thank you, nerdtron. I had most of the pieces but I put them in the wrong places and wrote a wrong command in the Startup. But I did begin to learn more about shell scripts.

    I can't think of the right words to express my gratitude for the help I've received here. A big THANK YOU doesn't seem adequate.
