permission denied and you are not the owner for folders
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 22, 2010
I am getting very frustrated trying to install stuff and not having access to my folders and files. I downloaded stuff that I need to put files into the folders of the programs but I either can't find the folders in the first place or I get permission denied or you are not the owner and can't do anything. Example...I found a solution to play Yoville on Firefox and have to put a file in the firefox folder..which I can't find. I have an applet for Awn which needs a file put in schemas..permission denied. I also get the message..you are not the owner. This is my machine and I'm the only user. What the?? I have downloaded the pocketbook guide and spent hours each day for about five weeks trying to work out how to get everything going in Ubuntu but I'm about ready to jump on the Install disk and snivel back to Windows. I used to think I was reasonably intelligent till I tried to switch to Ubuntu. Thunder bird was working fine till I logged on this morning..now it won't send mail. AAAAAAAAHH
Jaunty Repositories: Have you seen me?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 7, 2011
I am trying to install the build-essential package on my new Jaunty install, but I seem to get 404 Not Found for all the repositories.
I have tried main repositories, US ones and the ones recommended in Software Sources as being the best choice, but I get the same response.
I can't install any packages because of this. Could someone help me find the repositories for this distro?
Thank you for reading this thread.
PS: I need to use Jaunty, so updating or using other distributions are not acceptable solutions for me.

Basically I dont see any advantages to using linux over windows xp, Im dual booting windows and ubuntu. Ubuntu is nice and all but I dont see anything that would make me prefer it over windows.The only thing i have been using ubuntu for is web browsing playing music/movies (cant play games) which I can do better/hassle free in windows.
So what are the advantages of l using linux over xp?
You have new mail
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 21, 2009
I administer a server for a small business. I usually access it through Webmin without a problem. Today I logged in through Putty to restart Webmin and received a message saying "You have new mail". The server is only a file server and not a mail server. How do I read this mail.
Sorry for asking what is most likely a very obvious question.

What triggers "you have mail/no mail?"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 27, 2010
When logging on to some command line accounts, I always get a message about mail, telling me either I have new mail, or I have no new mail. Other accounts don't display this message. All of the accounts are using the same shell and the same profile/rc scripts.
Could anyone tell me exactly what it is that triggers the display of the message?

phpMyAdmin: you have chosen to open PHTML
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 30, 2006
I upgraded to Ubuntu 5.10, and I've been regretting it ever since. To make a long story short, a bunch of programs stopped working.
When I go to (the previously working) 127.0.0.1/phpMyAdmin, I get prompted to Open or Save a PHTML file. Why am I being prompted for this and how do I fix this?
As per another thread, I tried adding this to apache2.conf and restarted apache:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .phtml
But that didn't work.
