Re: Ubuntu Touch

I have been watching and waiting Portreve. There are lots of features I like about that phone, but....., the processor is not the latest and greatest. I thought I would play around with UT on a cheap phone before I pay $600 and give up my Iphones. Given the lack of bloatware and tracking, the proces...

Ubuntu Touch

Does anyone have any experience with Ubutu touch?

I am not sure I am posting in the right place, but I figure this is a good place to start. I have kicked Microsoft out of my life. Time to look at getting Apple out!

Thanks for any input!

Howdy! Thank you in advance. I am using Sylvia 18.3 and cannot find location services to turn it off. Google keeps popping up in Thai ( I live in Thailand ), in spite of my use of a VPN. I have checked all the places to check to see if I have any VPN leaks and the VPN is solid. Not leaks, no webrtc ...

Can't find Windows on dual boot....<SOLVED>

Howdy, Thanks in advance! Ok, I have a machine I replace and set aside for about a year ago due to a constant shutting down problem in both operating systems.

Re: I have a network connection but no internet

@greerd

Yep, I believe you have found my issue. It is all tied to AirVPN not shutting down properly. A price I will have to pay as I have tried several VPNs here in Thailand and have been happiest with Air.

Thanks!!

Re: I have a network connection but no internet

Yep, problem was clearly defined in the 1st post, I have a network connection but cannot connect to the internet. 2nd post points out there is no problem when the VPN is connected, but only when connected. To answer your questions: Yes. Only with the VPN activated. Yes, everyone does. Yes glockdoc@G...

Howdy! I am running Sylvia on my acer all in one. Everything was fine until a few days ago. I started losing internet. A reboot usually fixed it. I was also having isp problems about the same time so I did not worry. Now I have no internet on my wired or wireless connection. I thought it was the las...

Re: Cannot change boot order on dual boot machine..updated....need help.

Well, after a few conversations with a VERY gracious member of the community the best educated guess is the machine is booting from the crashed partition that I cannot edit grub in. With nothing else to lose I deleted the partition that contained the crashed install and, after a few error messages c...
