Oh my, Ubuntu how you've changed
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 5, 2013
Finally upgraded my 512 ram P4 dell computer to an AMD athlon dual core 1GB DDR2 ram...Not a great leap I know but better than the old one and even better news came when I mentioned it on facebook someone took pity on me and gave me an intel Celeron c900 2GB DDR3 laptop.
My gripe comes when I downloaded Ubuntu and found loads of new junk on it like amazon, ubuntu one music etc add those to gwibber, empathy, zeitgeist, geoclue, apport, ubuntu one, ubuntu software center removal then adding sysnaptic etc it seems like with every new version there's more I have to do to get it to do exactly what I want.
(I searched how to remove amazon and got "sudo apt-get remove unity-lens-shopping", haven't tried it yet, I went straight for apt-get remove amazon but of course that didn't work.)
Probably just generally moaning like so many other people but it just feels like it's becoming less community orientated and more about the profit that can be made off of the community.
usb gps on ubuntu. how to, maybe...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 15, 2010
so plug your gps in and it doen't work, me to, but i have found a way...
0. we need a program to look at the data. gpsdrive or tango gps seems to do the trick.
1. we get some problem after installing throu synaptic, error 1 something to do with gpsd. gpsd is a program that relates the usb gps to the gui, tango gps, etc.
2. gpsd is of doing it's thing, we need to stop it. type
ps -C gpsd -fww
into the terminal
3. this will output some info about gpsd, we need the pid number.
UID .....PID PPID C STIME TTY TIME CMD
nobody 3993 1 0 17:16 ? 00:00:00 gpsd -N -n -D 2 /dev/ttyUSB0
4. we use this number to kill gpsd, type
sudo kill 3993
5. now we want to start it up again but runing under your login not nobody type
gpsd -N -n -D 2 /dev/ttyUSB0
6. this line seems to help.
sudo dpkg --configure --pending
7.lets get a fix. type
gpsprof -f cycle
and wait for 30s...60s...maybe 200s...
8. open tango gps
hope this helps

Ubuntu 12.04 NFS Server Help
- date: July 5, 2013
Need some NFS Server help. I am running Ubuntu 12.04
The goal is I have two directories off of /home and they are:
/home/homeserver/LocalRO that I wish to share as read only.
/home/homeserver/NetFree that I wish to share as read-write.
The computer is a desktop with a router connected to a cable modem. And I wish to share this over the home WiFi network with two Linux laptops. WPA2 Security is being used.
I am trying to follow this Wiki:
And getting stuck.

Dual boot win8 and Ubuntu, How to edit grub cfg?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 19, 2014
Got a call asking for a dual boot win8 and Ubuntu on a rather old Latitude D430 laptop.
Quite simple: with a blank 80Gb Hdd, use win8 DVD delete all partitions and allocate 47Gb for windows, it automatically created a small NTFs partition for its bootloader (I guess). Leave 30 some Gb unallocated space for Ubuntu late.
After win8 installation is done. Boot with Ubuntu Live Usb,
1. Select install Ubuntu
2. Select Something else (custom installation)
3. Add ext4 partition 20Gb for /
4. Select partition / for grub install location
5. Create /home and swap partitions within a logical closure, that used up all the hdd space left.
6. When Ubuntu installation is done, restart the system and it automatically boots into win8 as if nothing done about Ubuntu.
This is because Ubuntu partition / is not active and nothing altered within window partitions.
7. Search on web, find no clear enough instructions about how to make a linux partition active for me. I boot the system with
a mac o
