[SOLVED] How to use Ubuntu 11.04 Unity
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 5, 2011
When the new version of Ubuntu came out I eagerly upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04. I liked the look of Unity, but using it was something else.
I just couldn't figure out how to do simple tasks in the Unity desktop.
For example, how to maximize/minimize the window?
A search suggested that I'd be able to install Gnome3 instead, but I always seemed to be booting back into Unity after installing it.
I love Ubuntu, and it seems that if I'm to continue using it, I've got to find some manuals or something to explain the basics of Unity.
Does anyone have any suggestions? (Other than switching to Debian!)

How to install Ubuntu 9.04 on an Intel-based Mac laptop, by Richard Cavell v1.1. (June 2009)
Part 1 of 3
In the spirit of free-as-in-beer, please propagate these instructions wherever you like. They are for installing Ubuntu 9.04 on a MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro. These instructions may need to be slightly modified for different setups. If you wish to suggest any modifications, please do so.
I've written these instructions so that an absolute beginner ought to be able to follow them. Part 1 describes how to install Ubuntu on a Mac laptop. Part 2 describes how to configure Ubuntu for a Mac laptop. Part 3 is for novices. Part 3 is a reference that describes how to perform some basic tasks. You can refer to Part 3 if you don't understand something in Parts 1 or 2. I strongly suggest printing these instructions out so you will have them handy in spite of having to restart your computer multiple times.
Follow each step in order. Make sure you complete each step be
tar.gz how to install ubuntu 10.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 27, 2010
I have downloaded a tar.gz program how is it installed.
I find with windows using dos programing it is easy navigating between files and directories, gw basic etc.
With terminal you type in cd .. it takes you back to the home folder then if you type cd .. again it takes you back to the desktop, if you repeat the same sequence again cd .. terminal just returns with desktop, terminal just appears to work once and thats what makes it hard understanding the programing of terminal.
I find the only way around it is by turning terminal of and restarting it.
Flushing DNS Cache
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 29, 2010
I have been advised to flush the DNS cache to solve a problem I am having with certain websites. To do this I was advised to see the web pagehttp://www.techiecorner.com/35/how-t...x-windows-mac/. The instructions there tell me:
To flush the DNS cache in Linux, restart the nscd daemon:-
- To restart the nscd daemon, type /etc/rc.d/init.d/nscd restart in your terminal
- Once you run the command your linux DNS cache will flush.
However when I try that in the Ubuntu terminal I get:
bash: /etc/rc.d/init.d/nscd: No such file or directory
And attempting to find file "nscd" anywhere else has been fruitless.
How does one flush the DNS cache in Ubuntu?

[SOLVED] No browsing flush DNS?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 15, 2011
Today, I load up Ubuntu as normal, but although my web browser will display my router's "admin page" (like it normally would) where I can see total amount downloaded etc, it refuses to browse to any other page on the internet. Evolution does not want to get my emails either. However, Transmission is okay downloading and uploading files/torrents. Router seems logged onto internet okay, so clearly I'm connected to something.
Neither Firefox nor Chrome will bring up any web content.
However, my system is dual-boot so on loading into Windows XP to see what happens, browsing is normal, no problems. In fact I am typing this message from Windows - no choice!
I remember something about a "DNS cache" being corrupted as being the reason for browsing not being possible sometimes; however one website says "Ubuntu doesn't cache DNS records by default so unless you've installed a dns cache there isn't anything to clear".
So, given my inability to surf in Ubuntu,
Squid DNS cache
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 10, 2007
I have squid on OpenBSD 4.0
I'm having trouble accessing a specific website thru squid...without squid it gets there without any problem. I'm thinking it may be the internal dns cache of squid that is the cause of the issue. The DNS server is on windows 2003 and I already clear the cache entries there.
Does anyone know to clear the internal squid dns cache?

How to switch Ubuntu 13.04 to Ubuntu-Gnome 13.04?
I installed default 13.04 without knowing of Ubuntu-Gnome.
Unity is annoying and I want to get rid of it without reinstalling the system.
