Portable linux on USB HD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 1, 2013
Hi again, iam still struggling! I gave up the USB flash idea and yesterday bought USB HD 500 GB Seagate.
Idea: Portable linux version on the usb hd so i can use it everywhere on every computer regardles of computers hardware. So i probably need a linux wich can update drivers while it boots or something like that.
So far i tried Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04 LST wich failed, i get to login screen, after i login i just get purple screen. On another computer i just get black screen.
Is ubuntu good choice for usb hd? or should i chose some other version? Something faster?
Seems everything fails that i try to do. I followed a guide from malware hunters net the howto pdf and still it all fails.
/EDIT: I found a solution!!! At login screen when i chose my login password there is an icon i clicked and there i chosed UBUNTU 2D. Now it boots into ubuntu.
But the other questions still remain, is ubuntu a good choice as a portable linux version? Ubuntu feels kind of sluggish the 12.10 version. And
can't download portable linux apps?

I'd like to download a portable version of Transmission from http://portablelinuxapps.org/network/transmission
unfortunately the URL won't work. Clicking it ultimately leads me to sourceforge. Maybe the user took it down? Does anyone know any other options for me?

openSUSE Linux NTP server with GPS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 4, 2010
Current setup is openSUSE 11.2, but should work on other versions as well. Using the 'stock' NTP and GPSD software, available through the repos, you're able to get a stratum-1 clock up and running, for under $100USD.
Get your GPS receiver. Don't get anything fancy...just needs to support NMEA data. Have seen USB connected units for $59USD, and I'm using a Bluetooth GPS receiver that I got for $89.
Connect it to your Linux system, somehow...this will depend on the type of device. A USB device will show up as a serial device, like /dev/ttyUSB0, etc. The Bluetooth device shows up after I bind it with rfcomm, as /dev/rfcomm2. Regardless, connect the thing.
Start the GPSD daemon. I use "gpsd -n -b /dev/rfcomm2", obviously replacing the device name with whatever device you've got. The man pages for GPSD tell you about the options, but the "-n" tells GPSD to poll the device, and 'activate' it. Otherwise, some devices will just sit there, waiting for softw
HOWTO: Google Earth on Linux (Ubuntu) PC with GPS from Android smartphone/tablet
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 15, 2013
In this tutorial, I will introduce to you how to use Google Earth on Linux (Ubuntu) PC with position/tracking feature by making use of the built-in GPS receiver from your Android smartphone/tablet.
There are many reasons to use it this way. First, why do you have to buy an expensive external GPS receiver when your Android device has already one? Secondly, there is no Google Earth Pro for Linux, Google Earth Free Edition lacks GPS feature, you can't use your GPS device natively within Google Earth for Linux, so you waste money Finally, your Android screen is too small and/or Google Earth doesn't support your Android device.
Step 1: Install Google Earth for Linux (Ubuntu)
Google Earth for Linux installation is not so smooth as Google Earth for Windows or Mac, Google's support is quite bad for this problem. However, you will easily find instruction for this task somewhere on the Internet.
Step 2: Install a GPS sharing application on your Androi
Portable External Monitor for Linux and Android.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 3, 2012
I am seeing more and more portable external monitors coming on the market but watching some videos on them it says you need to install the driver for them and that you need Windows OS or MAC OSX.
I was wondering if there is anyone out here that has one and is it working with Ubuntu Linux?
I have been looking for one that will work off a USB and HDMI. This way I could use it with my Linux and my Android devices.
will my RCA [email protected] portable mp3 player work on linux
- date: August 15, 2004
back on windows i used musicmatch to transfer files to my mp3 player. i can't install musicmatch through wine. an error comes up saying i don't have internet explorer installed. there used to be musicmatch for linux but this was discontinued by musicmatch. does anyone know if these setup/install files are available for dowload anywhere.
the only other music management software i have heard of is real player. i went to their site and downloaded real player 10 for linux but it is just a player and doesn't include music management software.
i was dual booting xp/fc2 but i have gone to only fedora core 2 with kde desktop. if i can't get my [email protected]
player to work within the next week i will have to go back to windows. that will suck. so any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. i got my digital camera to work so i was hoping this would be possible as well.
i am not too optimistic though after reading these three threds.

Portable Linux Installation to a USB HDD for use on different computers
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 24, 2013
I am interested in setting up a Ubuntu, (probably Lubuntu,) on a USB HDD (not flash drive) that I can carry with me to plug into any available computer and use.
I am hoping that this portable system can contain all the same software as installed on my primary desktop including all my most often accessed data.
I have decided that I do not prefer Unity and would like to downgrade to something like Lubuntu, or maybe even Mint. However, I just spent the last two weeks getting 12.04 up and running with all my software, so rather than start with nothing again, I'll shift to this other project of having a portable version. When I get it stabilized, I'll have something to use while I rebuild this main system.
Once I have the portable working, I can use it until I get my primary desktop rebuilt with the newer Linux.
I am also assuming that I will have to install all the software twice, once on the portable, and once on my primary.
Data can be copied, but can it be synchro
