  • We also need to know if you are just trying to run it from a live medium or install to the hard drive. What Linux distro version are you using? What medium are you using for oversleeping USB, CD, DVD or network installation?
  • FYI.. If you wish to promote a lug then the best places to start would be social media and sending information to the computer sciences departments at local colleges.
  • the usb drive can be mounted onto any empty directory, the location has nothing to do with what is to be used. Once the volume is mapped and mounted you can follow the manufacturers instructions to complete the installation.
  • It sounds like the windows clent computer do not have the shares mapped as persistant. When mapping the external shares be sure to use the options to map persistance and use other credentials, when those are used windows will store the credentials f…
  • you can use the following command. systemctl start dbus-org.freedesktop.timedate1.service I do not use a dbus platforms, so I cannot help much more beyond pointing you to the post I found on the siduction forum here. I know that the siduction…
  • Many embedded plaforms have no root password by default, which is to allow the administrator to easily enter the system on the first boot and change the password to a new password of their choosing. Failure to change the password can and most likely…
  • I am not going to try to go through all of the steps to try to resolve your issue or state I know exactly what will resolve this issue, however based upon your input it sounds like the driver for the device in the kernel may have changed between rel…
  • Other users of the RAT mice have experienced similar issues because the mouse has additional buttons and options that deviate from the standard devices. I found a thread at ask.ubuntu.com in which a RAT5 user was able to resolve their issue by modif…
  • Crouton is just an extension, you must be in developer mode to use it for a linux machine installation. As a note, under crouton you are installing a linux version within the base OS (Chrome). This will immediately require more memory and cpu cycles…
  • The general term cloud itself can be quite confusing, just think of it as high redundancy offsite resources. There is cloud storage which is storing your data in a redundant offsite location which in most cases can easily be synced. This is what …
  • I am late to the conversation, but it sound like the first attempt was just run from the USB stick and not installed. The second attempt appears to have installed successfully, but the bootloader is not recognized which is why it is looking for the …
  • Have you considered adding the timestamp on the subject to simplify output and using the -q option to send the file contents? Another option would be to output the timestamp into a file in tmp, then append the testfile on the end, send the file a…
  • Please read the article at http://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials/795730-how-to-easily-install-ubuntu-on-chromebook-with-crouton and try again. Others have had success with Ubuntu and it is well documented. If you experience issues after reading th…
  • These teaser posts do no community service as the value of the information disappears if or when the linked site goes down. If someone asks a question you can link to the other site for more information, but doing unsolicited link posts is not welco…
  • Please do not use this forum as a feed aggregator to drive traffic to your site. We want original text and comments, if you want your articles on this site please use the blog feature. If you want more hits to your website then please use proper Seo…
  • It sounds like you are running it from the installation medium rather than completing the installation. Can you confirm if you had indeed completed the installation process?
  • By default, Arch does not setup user accounts. The user must set them themselves and I advise against using videos as tutorial for potentially complicated actions. The wiki provides more than enough information to complete your required action. L…
  • As far as I know the wubi installer no longer exists, so you will need to shrink some of the partitions on your system to make room for ubuntu to be installed. Lead at least 50GB of unallocated disk space for ubuntu. Once you have space, you can boo…
  • You have been in the windows world for far too long, Linux based systems will not install in a fat, ntfs or any other windows based filesystem because they do not support proper simplified permissions. You will need to set the partition(s) to native…
  • First, I highly recommend posting a new topic so that it does not clutter existing posts. 2nd, I cannot talk about that specific motherboard but it is very similar to the one that I am using in my desktop, it is very stable without major hardware…
  • To really learn the guts within a Linux based distro, I feel it would be best to start with gentoo, debian, slackware or arch as they default to the command line and force you to learn more about the core. My course for learning is exactly what y…
  • In order to assist we would need to know what error messages are being populated in the Grub command line.
  • hplip is generally installed inmost linux distros as a default entity, it works with cups to provide extra support for HP based devices. I have checked their compatibility list (http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/supported_devices/deskjet.html) an…
  • You can download the .deb files to a location on your hard drive, then either double click to prompt the package manager for installation of use dpkg, such as "sudo dpkg -i /path/to/file.deb" We always recommend the use of the package manager and…
  • Ok, then the permissions are the caus. The files are created under nobody, but the http daemon does not have access to those files. Please read the post at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/580584/setting-default-permissions-for-newly-created-files…
  • It sounds like the reference location to the images within the webpages is incorrect. Have you tried checking the image location on the webpages and comparing it against the filesystem location where the images are located? Additionally the permi…
  • Debian and Ubuntu are close enough in functionality that most of the ubuntu refrerences should apply. With that being said, I found a post at http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/b/techcenter/archive/2013/11/26/follow-up-ubuntu-on-the-precision-m…
  • Have you looked at the mini-ATX boards that have embedded x86 CPUs?
  • The hidden files only files in which the filename starts with a period. If you are referring to the GUI file manager known as Thunar, then you should just be able to go to 'View'->'Show hidden files'-> check/uncheck If you are referring t…
  • Windows based software works on the windows operating system, the libraries, frameworks, and compiled applications are different between windows, mac and linux, never expect cross compatibility. Nearly all of the games that you listed only run on…
