Which One to use...... trying to get wide view
location: linux.com - date: August 11, 2011
I had desire to get out/stop using Windows and I hated working on it everyday I worked for more than a decade........ My option to go for was Mac which is might expensive!!......
I tried ubuntu, Hated it for used interface plus it got into habit of crashing on my machine
Tried Mint, but could not get it to start working on my machine
(my work has been on Adobe-CS, and I cannot do without a system where I can open my old files...... came to know of inkscape, gimp and scribus and tried them on my windows OS, liked them (specially, inkscape and scribus what a great softwares!!)
Last I came to know of Mandriva, tried installing on dual boot first and failed miserably........ but, I was pissed with my Windows enough to take a plunge into unknown, so backed up my entire data and installed Mandriva as solo system...... it was not easy by any means, had to format my HD trice because of trial and error of learning period that I was in!!
But I managed and I am very happy with it, just wondering
Can't use USB Flash Drive: "Readonly file system")
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 23, 2009
I can't manage the files on my USB flash drive.
It says "Error removing file: Read-only file system"
here are the mount parameters:
/dev/sdb1 on /media/VERTE type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,shortname=mixed,uid=1001,utf8,umask=077,flush)
The properties windows identifies the FS as msdos
I think it's a FAT16.
I found a post with someone having a similar problem, he said it got fixed doing
sudo fsck.msdos -a /dev/sdb1
I tried it and it did not solve the problem.
I can waste the data on it, but I can't format it in ext2 because I'll need it to be usable with Windows.
Here's what fdisk says:
Disk /dev/sdb: 1039 MB, 1039925248 bytes
32 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1023 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1984 * 512 = 1015808 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0007eea3
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 * 1 1023 1014785 b W95 FAT32
Can anyone explain to me what's happening

I'm experiencing many crashes with Flash Player in both Chrome and Firefox. I'm running 12.04 upgraded from 11.10. Usually (always?) this happens with streaming videos.

Debian Chromium and FLASH PLAYER support / alternative
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 16, 2013
My default browser is SeaMonkey and there is no more support for Flash Player
for Linux as per the adobe website:
NOTE: Adobe Flash Player 11.2 will be the last version to target Linux as a supported platform.
Adobe will continue to provide security backports to Flash Player 11.2 for Linux.
I have uninstalled Google Chrome (as I got some errors while trying to update to current version) where the flash videos worked and wanted to try non google branded browser to use on sites like BBC iPlayer that does not run HTML5 but instead use Flash Video.
My question is:
- Can I safely use in SeaMonkey the outdated Adobe Flash Player 11.2 from Adobe or is there an alternative I can use in that browser to watch BBC iPlayer programs (flash videos)?
(I already have get_iPlayer, but sometimes I do not want to download the programs).
- Is there any way to get the flash videos play under the Chromium web browser on my Debian Whe

Ubuntu 10.045 (Linux) and Firefox 3.6.3 ~ How to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in & ActiveX control
In general Adobe needs to offer Ubuntu (Linux) support, but it seems like they don't care. Currently, I can't use Adobe flash Player to view You Tube video's. I followed the link (below) that is stated to help a user fix the problem:
Solve a Problem: The video won't play:
I then saw that Adobe suggested that I first needed to uninstall any older versions of the Flash Player and then install the latest version of the Flash player. I clicked on the link find out how to uninstall it here:

They didn't offer any help with Ubuntu 10.045 (or Linux in general).

cannot stream Amazon Instant Videos... I get the following message when using chrome..."Unsupported Flash Player -- If you're using the Chrome browser with Linux, you must disable PPAPI to continue using Amazon Instant Video. You can also use a different Web browser, like Firefox. Learn more"

Clicking the button below will take you to Adobe's Flash installer website. After installing Flash Player, you will be able to instantly ...."
Tried a few of the things in post by lovinglinux on 4-6-2012... but I have no idea what I am doing or what things mean so after the first two did not fix things I stopped trying. Sorry I am very green at this and like to understand what I am doing so...
Can anyone help? Thanks Lainey

Youtube flash player slow and laggy
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2012
I run the amd64 version of Ubuntu 12.04 and when I play a youtube video in fullscreen it is very slow and laggy(only in fullscreen). The only time this does not happen is if I watch a video that has a 1080p version(I can still watch it at 480p in fullscreen and it would not be laggy). This happens in both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. If a thread already exists for this please direct me to it. Thanks for all your help
