To go to the Internet using a Dongle. Page 2

I think you are busy. That is why I didn't get a response from you.
I badly need help. When you have time let me know the next step.
I know you live in the Netherlands. I live in Stockholm, Sweden.
Here it is possible to get a dongle for 2 weeks or 4 weeks for a trial.
You don't have to pay anything. If you keep it after the period you agreed with the operator,you are obliged to keep it for 24 months.
You have no chance to return it. Every month you should pay money to the operator; in other words you signed a contract for 24 months.
I think these things exist in the Netherlands too.
How about these things in the Netherlands?
If you don't have a dongle, you can get one for a trial period.
My 4 weeks trial period is over and I didn't return the dongle.
I must keep it for another 24 months. Every month I must pay roughly 65 dollars to them.

used linux before (ubuntuMeerkat I think) but first time ever reviving a sluggish old laptop by myself (dell latitude d620, intel t2300 @1.666GHz, 1gm of RAM, 74.5g drive).
Got (pretty much, I think) the data I want to save copied off it; got a distru of linux on a USB drive; thought I'd post here before I start to see if anyone has any wurdz of advice before I start...

Is Ubuntu right for me, or should I go FreeNAS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 24, 2010
Greetings...I'm a newbie here, thought this would be the best place to start. I want to build a server that will act mainly as a NAS, but will provide additional functionality, and despite FreeNAS appearing to be very easy to set up and maintain, I don't know if it can do more than just the basic stuff, so I started to consider Ubuntu, and here I am.
The server hardware ain't too bad (Athlon 2400+ I believe, 512MB RAM, Adaptec 2610SA hardware RAID card for a RAID-5). I want to install it to a CF card on an IDE adapter (which is in transit from Hong Kong). My CF card is 256MB...I think I have a 512MB somewhere, but I have a feeling if I go with Ubuntu, I will need more space.
Here's a list of my must haves (=), definitely would like (+), and maybe would like (-). Would you guys recommend I go Ubuntu or FreeNAS based on these requirements? I'm very computer literate but I haven't messed with Linux in years (last time I sort of played around was when Gentoo was king; the last time befor

[SOLVED] On Ctrl+Alt+F1 shows 1st console , but on Ctrl+Alt+F7 doesnt go back to GUI, startx
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 28, 2012
I might be doing it wrong, but isn't Ctrl+Alt+F1 / F7 supposed to allow switching between console (F1) and GUI (F7) ?
Everytime I go to console, when I try to come back I get a blank screen. The desktop is running, X is running, but I cant connect to it, so to speak.
When I try Ctrl+Alt+Backspace from the live CD that doesnt work too.
Neither does Ctrl+Alt+F11
Effectively I have only one option - reboot.
Also, I'd be glad is someone could tell me the command for starting an X session.
Or, if an X session is running, to kill it completely and restart and reconnect/enable it visually.
Thanks a ton in advance, this has been troubling me for some time.
I want to go from Jolicloud to Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 9, 2011
is there an easy way to do this? If possible I'd like to just install ubuntu and not have to back anything up.
Jolicloud is just a little too light. I find ubuntu to be more of a real computer experience.
Installing Ubuntu? How easy to go back to Tiger?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 15, 2009
I have a doubt regarding installing Ubuntu (either 8.04 or 8.10) on a PowerBook G4.
I'm pretty sure the answer will "no", but I'd like double check
1. I'd like to install Ubuntu, by wiping the whole HDD, and using it for Ubuntu. Provided I have a Tiger Retail DVD, will I be able to re-install Tiger later, right? With Disk Utility during the install?
2. I have seeing, testing it with the Live CD, that in order to get the wireless adapter running, Ubuntu tries to install a firmware. Would that firmware cripple in any way the future use of the wireless adapter if I install Tiger again?
As usual, TIA

The problem is that i want my wireless lan to work in debian, but it doesn't
My USB Wifi dongle: D-Link DWL-G122 (USB: 07D1:3C0F)
Debian wiki told me i needed the RT2870 driver so i went to this page and followed the steps: http://wiki.debian.org/rt2870sta

10.04 LTS vs 10.10 almost made me go back to Windows.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 16, 2010
Back in July I bought an Acer Aspire ONE KAV60 with Xubuntu installed on it. I used to run Linux a long time ago but had not messed with it for a couple of years and I was surprised to find out how much more "user friendly" Linux had gotten (With Ubuntu anyways). There are more and more GUI programs/processes now days which makes everything easier to do, however there are a couple of things that I have found in the last few months running Linux only on my little netbook.
When I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid and installed it from the Xubuntu, I was quite satisfied with the general desktop setup and ease of the operating system. I loved it, it was like going from OS/2 to Win95 all over again! (I'm not that old, I just started young).
Here recently, I ran into a little problem with 10.04 and had to re-format, but when I went to re-download it the new 10.10 was available instead. I threw it on a flash drive and installed it on my netbook only to have "problem af
Ugh! Ubuntu 10.10 jacked me up How do I go back to 10.04?
