The Members Map
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 19, 2006
I'd like to point out that there is an excellent map with the locations of all the registered members of Ubuntu Forums.
There are lots of Ubuntu users in the US and Europe, though it slows down when we reach Russia. Lots of users in the Phillipines as well from what I can see.
It's amazing that people in the northern parts of Canada and even some people on Greenland use Ubuntu, just as people in the middle of the atlantic and other great oceans are apparently using it
I wonder why Spain seems to be not using Ubuntu as much as the rest of Europe - it's not like it's a sparsely populated country (look at how well Finland does for example!).
Bangkok ICT expo, lots of Linux exposure
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 6, 2004
All sorts of interesting things on show at Bangkok ICT expo
Many sytems available for sale with Linux pre-installed, although with the software piracy issue it is frequently debated whether people buy a Linux system and then head off to one of the infamous piracy centers for a bootleg copy of XP pro etc
One interesting thing I saw was the Burapha University Linux project, making a Thai distro based originally on Slackware, and keeping it seemingly very up to date as compared to Linux TLE which is based upon RH9.
The homepage of the project is:
*note* there seems to be some conflicting pages/info there.

USB Share only when wifi is offline
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 29, 2014
I have this hardware: pc with 12.04, Netgear N600 router. I am trying to config the Ubuntu to talk with the router. This computer has internet access via wifi only. If the wifi is connected (via Net Mgr) then I cannot access the Netgear webgui (192.168.1.1) and Nautilus shows nothing connected but the Windows folder and it is "Unable to Mount Connection" state.
If I disconnect the wifi, then I can access the Netgear webgui (192.168.1.1). It shows no USB device connected. But Linux/Ubuntu/12.04 cannot "see" it. I know that MS and MAC users have an applet to make these connections, but haven't been able to find one, or a How-To or Tutorial for 12.04.
For clarity's sake: the pc and the router connect to each other via an ethernet cable. The pc has internet access only via another wifi router. That wifi router is also the dsl modem (AT&T). I want to stick to a cable connection for now.
Samba: "map to guest = Bad User" asks for password and fails authentication
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 8, 2014
First post. correct me on anything.
I have to use linux and windows interchangeably for my work. I am running Debian x64 on Virtual box and running win7 as host. I have been using samba for using tortoise svn from windows. I have backed up my VM before and restored smb.conf.
My problem is that samba stopped working without changing anything significant. I installed tunnelbear on the host. Network assigned me a new IP etc.
Most peculiar part as you will see below is: "map to guest = Never", when testparm obviously states it is: "map to guest = Bad User"
Here is my ifconfig: (eth0 is a bridged network and eth1 is NAT.)

Hope this is the right forum for this. I'm new to Linux but I'm hoping to learn more.
My idea is to set up an offline kiosk using an old Dell D620 laptop. It will be used at trade fairs and other public places, and it is for one very simple purpose: to allow people to sign up their names and e-mail addresses in order to receive newsletters and promo mails.
The ideal thing would be to have a completely offline solution, with the OS installed on the hard drive (to avoid tampering with USB sticks etc) and some kind of local web server running, with a simple form on a locked-down browser that allow for saving input data to the hard drive. Then, at the end of the day, you just plug in a USB stick and transfer the database/stored info.
So which distro would you recommend? The easier to set up the better since I'm no programmer.
Surely this must have been done before. However when googling I only come up with online solutions booting from USB drives. I've read about Por
I Need buildessential Package, But An Offline Installer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 5, 2006
Hi, I have a problem about installing softwares via internet. I have two computers, actually one is mine and one is my father's. Because of a "cable" problem only my father's computer is connected to internet. But Ubuntu is only installed on "my" computer. I need to get the build-essential package to be able to install other .deb files or source codes that I downloaded via my father's computer. But I cannot install build-essential package because my computer is not connected to internet and synaptic cannot find that package.
It surprised me that Ubuntu has not any installed C compiler by default. Anyone here have an advice for me?

Is anybody having trouble accessing the debian-multimedia repository or is this a problem only on my network. This has been a happening on 2 computers for 6 days now.
This is taken from craigevil's sources list and worked well until last week:

I installed for the my first-time Debian (Etch). I installed the system offline from the 3 DVD that I downloaded because this laptop's wireless card needs ndiswrapper to work.
Being offline during installation I could not set up the Debian package repositories and I ended up with this sources.list:

This is something that has bugged me about Ubuntu, and to an extent, Linux in general. There is an assumption that EVERYONE has unfettered access to internet these days. While more people are online now than ever before, there is still a large population of people that either don't have internet, or have very limited access through other's computers.
In discussing this, I've heard so many people talk about APTonCD and Keryx, but let's face it, these are hardly ideal. APTonCD requires that the downloading computer runs the same version that the install computer uses, if there is such a computer at all. Next, Keryx assumes that you will be able to install it on someone's Win* computer. These users are already scared of anything new and hardly lend themselves as benefactors especially if it is a Public Library that keeps their computers on constant lock-down denying even USB or CD access.
Some argue that .debs are the way to go but sometimes they do not include all of the dependenci
