Re: Seeking help for install ubuntu and remove suse

Heya,

Installing ubuntu is incredibly easy, grab the ubuntu 1004 desktop edition iso off the main site or off a local mirror, burn it to cd or usb, boot off of it and install as per normal

If you need more specifics reply back :)

You install Ubuntu right over where SuSE is sitting and SuSE will be 
removed because it will be overwritten. When installing Ubuntu let it 
reformat the HD and this will remove SuSE.

Or is there something about your setup which you haven't mentioned yet?

linux-image-server

Hi,

I am using http method to install ubuntu server over the network. I do
use ks.cfg file. Basically network based installations. I have
tftpd/dhcpd/apache2 servers to serve this purpose The issue is that
after installing ubuntu 8.04 server on the client host, I see the
generic kernel being installed and not the server kernel.

I did manually by running apt-get install linux-image-server on the
client host. It installed the server kernel which is a manual method.
is there a way to fix it on the pxe image itself so that whenever new
clients are being build with Ubuntu 8.04 server. It installs server
kernel and not generic kernel.

Please let me know if i need to furnish additional information about my setup.
Please suggest/guide further.

Thanks,

Meeting Tuesday 13/07/10 at 2100 AEST

Good morning/afternoon/evening Ubuntu-AU'ers

I just wanted to send a quick reminder that the meeting for July is
only a week away. According to the wiki at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AustralianTeam/Meetings there has been very
little movement with regards to agenda items.

I was wondering if those that were organising the 2 votes from the
previous meeting would be willing to add some agenda items to report
back on the outcomes of these results. If anyone else has anything to
add can they make sure they do soon so we can all have time to look
over the items before the meeting and think about things beforehand so
it's not all spur of the moment.

I have added in a couple of items that could be discussed in the
meeting so please everyone if you want something discussed add it
sooner rather than later. There is also no one currently listed as the
meeting chairperson for this upcoming meeting so if you want to
volunteer please feel free to add yourself to the wiki.

Regards,

Jared Norris

Re: skipe for ubuntu?


Hi Abdul. I am sorry for not getting back to you earlier as this message
was unfortunately picked up by one of my mail filters & filed in a
bugmail folder that I do not check as often as I should.

Can I please ask you to confirm what you wish to be accessible via orca?
I am unsure whether you mean enabling the partner repository or using skype.

If you are asking if skype is accessible using orca, unfortunately I
have not had any experience with this. From a bit of searching on
Google, I found the following website that might help:

http://live.gnome.org/Orca/Skype#details

Please note that these instructions state that this setup is not
officially supported & you might require some "sighted" help for some of
these instructions.

Sorry again for not responding sooner. If you need anything further,
please do not hesitate to contact the mailing list. There are a few of
us "regulars" that will be more than happy to help with any issues you
may be experiencing.

Warm Regards,
Mitch Towner (from Ubuntu-AU Mailing List)

Problems with printing

Hello All

I have a problem with printing under Lucid Lynx.
My printer is an HP1200 with 72Mbytes of RAM ( the maximum).

Printing is extremely slow (many minutes a page) and the job often terminates before completion. I always select 'urgent' and the 'Document Print Status' window just sits and sits with 'processing' being displayed.

Printing the same file under MS (shudder..) to the same printer, the delay is very small.

Has anybody any ideas?

Thanks
David Bowskill

Have you looked here:  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cups  ?

Or in the launchpad generally, or  https://help.ubuntu.com/community  ?


(I have an HP 8450 and have no problems of any description, just in case you are wondering, and am using Lucid as well.)
