How do I get Vidalia/TOR to work on Ubuntu Linux?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 9, 2011
I've downloaded Vidalia, but instead of No Configuration, I chose One-Time Restart, and now whenever I try to open TOR, it says that it is already running. I've rebooted already, but that didn't help at all. I would like to start using TOR as an experiment and to remain anonymous. Sure, there's HideMyAss! add-on for Google Chrome, but I just want to try it all out. Can someone help me?
This is what it says
"Vidalia detected that the Tor software exited unexpectedly.
Please check the message log for recent warning or error messages."
"Jul 09 23:50:12.088 [Notice] Tor v0.2.1.30. This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity. (Running on Linux x86_64)
Jul 09 23:50:12.089 [Notice] Initialized libevent version 1.4.13-stable using method epoll. Good.

On ubuntu 10.10 notebook edition, that won't boot due to /sbin/init being damaged, how would I mount the External Hard Drive and then what command would I use to backup my Home Folder to External Hard Drive , using live CD?
I am hoping to salvage my Home Folder and then do a Re-install of my ubuntu 10.10 notebook edition.
Using Live CD when I go to my home folder, I can see all the partitions on the old system and their size, but how would I back up the Home Folder to the external HD?
What is Ubuntu Mobile, and how do you install it?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 31, 2011
My friend has an old iPhone with a broken screen, and he told me that once he fixed it, he was going to install Ubuntu Mobile on it. I went to the Ubuntu website, but couldn't find Ubuntu Mobile. What is Ubuntu Mobile, and how, if possible, can I get it on an iPod touch? I saw a video where someone had full, desktop Ubuntu on his iPod; is this it, or not?

How do I install Windows 7 from ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 29, 2013
I will try to make this short as possible
Lately I have realised that installing only ubuntu was and removing windows was a huge mistake mainly due to gaming purposes . so is there a way that I can remove ubuntu and install windows or even keeping ubuntu because it don`t really mater as far as I have windows on my laptop. I have try`d booting windows 7 from a usb several times using UNetbootin but it don`t really work as I had problems while formatting it from fat32 to NTFS and I have also try`d installing windows xp from CD using Nero Linux but that was a failure to and I ended up wasting 2 of my CDs so is there a way where I can install windows 7 from a DVD because USB`s don't really seam`s to work for me.Also I have try`d different iso. for windows 7 and xp..
Thank you for your answers... Harsh
How do I install this usb wireless 802.11n on ubuntu?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 19, 2012
The cd came with instructions but it all seemed like greek to me. I need it to tell me what exactly what I need to type into the terminal or some other way of getting it to work.
I thought maybe I can boot to windows to install it that way and then use wine to run it in linux. However my vista isn't supported. lol so I'm back to square one.
here is what happened. I gave a person a copy of ubuntu on their desktop but they only have wireless internet. So I told them that I'll have to purchase them a wireless card and put it in. I found the usb much cheaper, Now trying to get it to install is the problem. I need to install it on mine first to make sure it works and have the know how to do it when I arrive at their house to install it. I really want this to work for them and everybody is happy.
Would it help to post the instructions so you can translate it for me? If I did, how do I use tags? because it's pretty long
