USB tethering LG Optimus L3 II
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 14, 2014
In an emergency, I purchased an LG Optimus L3 II, but it refuses to make a tethered USB connection - my old HTC tethers flawlessly. Google provides nonsense solutions (e.g. use wireless or bluetooth). Wireless is working almost acceptably, but cannot be relied on for downloads as the connection is not stable. Trusty identifies it as a lg-e435f - which I don't think is the same model. To make it worse, I am in Australia, where stuff gets randomly repackaged, so it makes it even harder to identify. The USB tether seems to connect OK, but then instantly disconnects.
Not sure where to attack this from - does the phone need a widget or does Ubuntu?

Please excuse my asking in this forum. The most appropriate forum on Androidquestions.org is having a problem where it is not displaying new posts. Or at least not mine.

[SOLVED] How to run Guitar Pro 6 on 64bit on a system with NVIDIA Optimus
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 7, 2012
I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit on both my laptop and my desktop.
I managed to install Guitar Pro 6 on my desktop by using 32-bit dependencies, following the instructions here to install:
I followed the exact same methods on my laptop, but Guitar Pro 6 won't run. I have tried the official demo from the website, which didn't work either.
When downgrading my libraries to 32-bit for Guitar Pro 6 install, at some point in the terminal it had an issue with LibGL, saying it was installed by the video driver.
I suspect this may be the cause of the problem, since after Googling for hours, the only issues were with libportaudio, which I downgraded successfully.
So, is there a way to downgrade LibGL to 32-bit, since it is installed with the video driver? Would this stop my display working, or is it impossible?
I also tried installing the Windows version under Wine and PlayOnLinux, neither of which worked. Guitar Pro 6 installs successfully, but then nothing happe
Comparison and Review of Xubuntu vs. Manjaro (Arch)(Xfce) on a Netbook
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 13, 2013
Story: My mother works at a pawn shop, and therefore she gets a discount. And when my laptop failed (HDD) I needed something to do school work on before buying my college laptop, so I bought a netbook for $30. Yes I realized I could just buy a new HDD, but my laptop was falling apart anyways. This brought up the question, which OS to run on it? I was going to try Lubuntu (for the first time), but seeing as 12.10 wasn't out yet I decided to go with Xubuntu. That's what brought me to this point.
HP Mini 110-3510NR
Dual Core 1.66GHz Intel Atom CPU N455
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150
1GB DDR3 Ram (will upgrade to 2GB)
Dell/Broadcom BCM4313 Wireless
And I think that's everything relevant.
NOTE: Same kernel was in use in Both OSes
Being a netbook, I didn't expect much at all so I started out with the default Xubuntu 12.10 install. From there I went on to install all the codecs and other proprietary software ubuntu doesn't carry by default so
Triple boot help with latest Ubuntu distro on Apple Mac book Pro with Bootcamp.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 30, 2011
I am using Bootcamp with a dual boot function with Mac OSX Snow Leopard and Windows 7. I now want to introduce a 30gb partition for the latest Ubuntu Distro.
I really want to be careful to ensure I dont break anything as it works perfectly at the moment. I have used Rfix and Bootpicker to manage the dual boot processes as well as using the option key in Bootcamp to boot into each OS.
Does anyone have any advice how I could create a new partiton for me to use for Linux. I want to make a 30gb partion.
Any step by step instructions would be fantastic. I really want to improve my Linux skills and want to run it natively rather than thru a virtual machine using VMware or Parallels.
An honest review of GhostBSD from a devout Linux user
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 17, 2011
I had long been interested in BSD ever since watching Revolution OSand doing some research into the history of Gnu/Linux. So on the BSD's Wiki i saw the link to FreeBSD website, but no GUI installer deterred me at the time. And very recently I heard about GhostBSD from ThisWeekinLinux (Great guy and show). GhostBSD is basically FreeBSD with the GNOME environment and a GUI installer. The project is maintained by a small group of developers. Since you normally see KDE on Clone BSD distros, i decided to give this one a try. I downloaded the iso (2.0), and after some bumps with UNetBootin, finally burned it to a dvd. I also downloaded PCBSD for a method of comparison (since this is my first try at BSD)I booted up from the DVD, just to find myself waiting for an incredibly long time, a normal Linux live DVD will be up and running in 5 minutes tops, but GhostBSD took 10-15 Minutes (So does PCBSD). So i did some research and found out that this was normal for BSD, and i must say that is reall
