Grub2 won't boot on portable drive, Stuck on "grub loading."
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 15, 2012
Hi everyone. I have a ubuntu 12.04 installed on my portble drive (1TB) in the 3rd partition, the partition format is ext4. But I have trouble booting on my HP dv6 6029tx laptop,after selecting the boot device from bios menu, it hangs on a black screen and nothing else, I guess it has stuck on stage 1?
if I press shift, then there is just a single line shows
as in the img below.
I've tried to reinstall grub2 and mbr, no luck. Is this a hardware issue? or related to compatibility?
interesting thing is my laptop had succeeded in booting previous version of ubuntu via USB drive, and the problem occurred after I reinstalled 12.04 on the portable drive with livecd.
Possible to transfer files to/from portable vhd from/to PC?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 26, 2009
Is that possible or just thru the net?
I am speaking of my portable-qemu stuff where I have dsl running off a vhd running off USB; only way I know to transfer files/etc is thru internet.
[SOLVED] virtualbox portable firewall/proxy
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 25, 2013
Using virtualbox under Windows is there a way to configure a firewall/proxy Linux distro such as CentOS so that all Windows web traffic first goes through the firewall and then out to the network using just a single wireless NIC?
In other word, I'd like to use my portable on public wifi and carry the proxy with me in a virtual machine. This way my laptop can enjoy the benefits of a web proxy and firewall anywhere. I suspect the solution is to have two NICs in the VM one for bridged so that CentOS can communicate directly with the wireless NIC and one for NAT so that the Windows host can communicate into the VM then through the VM to the Internet.
I appreciate any thoughts.
Linux alternative to portable scanner software
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 30, 2013
I'm running Lubuntu 13.04 on an Acer Aspire T160 machine. Runs mostly fine, except when trying to get my portable USB scanner (Doxie One - girly I know!) to work with the software via Wine. Wine says it doesn't support USB straight off, at least not without a load of messing around.
All I really need is some software which will view the SD card contents, allow me to contrast/brighten, rotate, crop, combine images as a multi page document and then export as an OCR .PDF. Does anyone know of any alternative which will do this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are there any good GPS navigation software compatible with linux?
I have built a carputer and i was considering using Ubuntu's netbook edition.
Marine Navigation Software available?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 3, 2011
Can anyone shed light on the subject of marine navigation (yachting) software that will run well under Linux esp ubuntu?
This would be fantastic. I have been through the linux 'terrestrial' stuff which appears to all be land based GPS mapping for use in cars. We would really like something that replaces Maxsea (french) or Nobeltech or the host of other clunky windows programs. The australians do some good windows ones. The main criterion would be to read into the linux platform the relevant and various windows based maps /charts of the oceans and coast.
any help appreciated!
GPS Software for Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 17, 2007
I just got a laptop and was looking to get some type of GPS software to use with it. I was looking into DeLorme's Street Atlas 2007, for windows, but I was wondering if anyone knows of any software to use with Linux that can do the same as Street Atlas.
Linux version of Streets & Trips with GPS Locator?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 3, 2010
MS has an excellent program with their Microsoft Streets & Trips with GPS Locator.
It turns your laptop into a GPS with voice prompts and works great and is easy to use. Question is does Linux have any app that works as well or one that comes close to it so I don't have to rely on Windows for this?
GPS IGotU How to make it work on linux ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 25, 2012
I have a GPS plotter IgotU-GP-800PRO.
I tried for several days to get it running on Linux with some setbacks:
- I manage to create and read GPX files with GPXEditor
- but at the moment, I can not export or import GPX files from my GPS IgotU. I tried Igotu2GPX but apparently my GPS is not recognized.
Here are some error messages that I get when I tried :
igotu2gpx info Downloading configuration... Unable to download configuration from GPS tracker: Unable to find device '0df7:0900'
I tried to change the ID in igtougui because it appears that the ID listed above is not the same i get :
Bus 007 Device 018: ID 0df7:0b80 Mobile Action Technology, Inc.
So even after that change I get this :
# igotu2gpx info Downloading configuration... Unable to download configuration from GPS tracker: Unable to send data to device: Relais brisť (pipe)
My questions are :
1/ do you have an idea of what I could do to be able to use igotu
