Trouble with partitions
location: linux.com - date: July 22, 2009
I've just got Ubuntu 9.04 on my old IBM Thinkpad T21 and I've been facing some issues here. When installing the new OS, I set up 3 partitions: 1 for 'swap', one for root and a 3rd one for my files (I just want to keep my files apart from OS files in case of a crash or any sort of disgrace. What happens now is that I cannot make any change in this 3rd partition as it prompts no 'privilege' of doing so. I'm the only user so I've already granted myself privileges on every possible authorizations (under 'system/administration') but it still prevents me of managing the folder.
Have I done anything wrong? How to correct this?
Thanks in advance for your help!
[SOLVED] Problem with Apostrophes/Quotes
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 8, 2008
I have a problem that whenever I hit the apostrophe key/quote key I have to hit space before I get either the apostrophe/quotation. If I hit apostrophe without hitting space it adds it on top of the next letter: éáćóúáńŕ and so on. I have changed my keyboard model setting to the Generic 105-key (Intl) PC and I have the layout as USA.
The problem is, I have to switch between this layout and another keyboard model (say Hewlett-Packard since my computer is an HP) every single time I restart my computer. No matter what keyboard model/layout it's on, every time I restart the apostrophe/quotes get messed up again so I have to change it again.
Does anyone have any problem like this where your quotes/apostrophes are buggy and changing your keyboard model/layout is only a temporary fix until you restart?
