Re: Acer C710 touchpad not working

BarryT -- I just installed lubuntu on my son's old Chromebook when his laptop died. How did you edit the code to get the touchpad working correctly? I got it to "wor," but it's jittery.
Thanks!

Re: Atheros wifi fix (AR2413 - AR5005G & maybe others) (SOLV

heh, heh -- something i found out AFTER all this nonsense was that there was a time lock on the wifi router between the hours of 8am - 5pm or so -- it broadcasts a signal, your computer says you are connected, but you can't surf the net or download anything -- right when i was trying to test it out!...

The Avatar you use looks like a whimsical stomping horse - sort of. I can't make out what it is. Just sill curiousity. :)

Re: Mint 13 LXDE. When?

But i can't figure out - if Ubuntu 12.04 is LTS for 5 years and L'Ubuntu is based on it, shouldn't all software and repos work for BOTH versions thru 2017? Isn't that what LTS means?

Re: Mint 13 LXDE. When?

Bummer, man... :( Not so sure it will make a big difference to me, however. As for Mint, it's always my first choice for everyone I bring into the Linux camp. :)

Umm -- as far as i understand it, LTS means packages will be available for 5 years. It shouldn't matter if it's any flavor of Ubuntu, Mint, official or not...

Re: Mint 13 LXDE. When?

Well, you COULD (hack, hack) try L'Ubuntu. You can add minty packages. (I just installed it last night...)

Re: Mint 13 LXDE. When?

unfortunately, it looks like you will have to settle for getting the XFCE edition (or any other edition) and installing the L'Ubuntu package from the repos. No LXDE is planned according to this post (about 2/3 of the way down) Hey, maybe you can upload an unofficial remaster! :wink:

Re: no WPA in Mint 7 - Gloria

OK - i think you nailed it. It's 3com 3RCWE777A - a quick google search yielded questions dating back to 2004, so the unit is at least that old, about the time WPA came in, i believe. So -- mystery solved. Either they will have to settle for WEP, my friend will have to stick with wired security, or ...

no WPA in Mint 7 - Gloria

Hi! I had to load Mint 7 in an older machine for a friend. The 3com wireless card worked perfectly in my home's WEP-encrypted network, but the family he is staying with is encrypted WPA (or WPA-2). WPA doesn't even show up as an option in Mint 7's default wireless connection program - how does one c...
