Re: 19.3 wont go live with USB

Success. That worked out pretty well. The rendering of pages is perfect now. Was previously driving me crazy. The passwords didnt seem to come up; but I can live with that. Thanks.

Re: Mate 19.3 from flash drive

First thing he has to do is set the BIOS to boot from USB, right?

Re: 19.3 wont go live with USB

I guess you are referring to the bookmarks only. Passwords are all wiped, right?

Re: 19.3 wont go live with USB

ok, I will do this when I work up enough guts. I know that all my saved passwords and bookmarks will get erased. So, I need some time to work up the nerve.

Re: 19.3 wont go live with USB

I did checksum and that proves out ok. The only reason I want to reinstall 19.3 is because something happened to Firefox. Its a little sticky when pulling up a page and some pages do not render properly. Not really a big deal but it is getting on my nerves. I used Synaptic to uninstall then reinstal...

Re: 19.3 wont go live with USB

I downloaded the ISO then I right click on it and selected "make bootable usb stick" or something like that. I forgot the exact phrasing.

[SOLVED] 19.3 wont go live with USB

I am trying to install 19.3 with USB but the live session never comes up. The computer just reboots over and over.

Any suggestions on alternative ways to install? commandline? FTP?

Re: install 19.3 from commandline

OMG. It says 19.3 Tricia. Did I upgrade and not know it? That S*CKS. This system currently that I have sticks and hangs up from time to time, its only about 2 seconds, especially when I use Firefox and Nemo. One day I got a message on the screen, "Firefox updated in background, please restart". That...

I just opened Update Manager, I clicked Refresh, then checked Edit - no upgrade option.

install 19.3 from commandline

I tried to do a USB install but my usb keyboard is not recognized during the install. The menu said "install" so I just left it there. But after 10 seconds, instead of going into installation mode, my computer just keeps rebooting continuously. In Update Manager, I do not see any Upgrade option. I a...

Re: I do not want Thunderbird to sync with remote email server

I think I understand. I have to set the port for POP. I have my /home folder on a different partition, so usually I never think about these things. Something must have got reconfigured on the last install? In any case, do you know the port for POP? I am almost sure that is the problem. EDIT!!! I don...

Re: I do not want Thunderbird to sync with remote email server

For some reason, my desktop and laptop do not look the same. Here is what I got on my laptop, weird.

Also, on my laptop, I do not have this option: Leave messages on server.

Something doesnt feel right.

Re: I do not want Thunderbird to sync with remote email server

I will open my laptop and check the setting but I think you have touched on the problem I am having. I used the same system on my desktop, exact. But on my desktop, the two systems do not interfere with each other: My desktop retains all emails and doesnt touch the Hotmail server, all messages there...

Re: I do not want Thunderbird to sync with remote email server

I can give it a try. The problem with this is that it takes a few days to see if the change made a difference. It takes a couple of days to see, "oh ok my emails are not being deleted on my computer". So I would be glad to collect all suggestions and try them one by one over the next week or so. If ...

I do not want Thunderbird to sync with remote email server

I dont know what I did wrong but for some reason Thunderbird is syncing with my remote hotmail server. Hotmail is free but it really limits the amount of messages that are stored. On Hotmail my old email is being deleted everyday, thus, it is deleted on my computer too. I want to keep all the emails...

Re: [SOLVED] Software free for Canon TS5050 doest not recognize the device

I have a correction to make. This is how I set up my Dell Printer, not the Canon. I can use a browser to access my Canon and Dell both via IP. I assume the two procedures are analogous. Also, Canon has some of the best tech support ever. They never get frustrated and make me feel bad about dumb ques...

Re: [SOLVED] Software free for Canon TS5050 doest not recognize the device

It is not that easy, at least not for me. You have to access your printer across your network. http:// 192.168.1.??? what ever the IP is for your printer. Here the printer will ask the IP of your computer and the directory that you want to save your PDF to. In my case I had to tell Samba to share th...

Re: No-IP will not install

Since I am not an OS guy, I really dont fiddle with the OS files. I simply use linux and install software from the repositories When I upgrade it is always a clean install. The only thing I dont format is the HOME directory. I leave that untouched and just set a mount point for it: something like /h...

Re: No-IP will not install

Ok that worked. I never saw anything about precompiled on the No-IP website. They had some girl on a video that said if installation doesnt work then you are missing a compiler: "Go Do That". I am glad I came on these boards. Saved me headaches. And, now I got it all in writing so I can print it and...
