Re: [LINUX_Newbies] low disc space

 

Parted Magic is a Live CD. You download the ISO and burn to disk. It is now commercial. I forgot that. If you go to their site they will ask for money. It was free for many years. :(

Instead you can use SystemRescueCD. Or you can download any version of Ubuntu and burn it to disk. 

http://sourceforge.net/projects/systemrescuecd/

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto

If you can boot from usb that is the easiest route. Just install Unetbootin from the repositories and it will download the ISO and write it to a usb stick. (Tip: insert the usb stick before you open the application or it can't find the usb stick.)

Hi Roy,

Thanks for your comments, I didn't get an installation disc. Is the program you mention available as a free download & if so where can I find it ?

Cheers,

Yes. You will need to boot the installation disk or download Parted Magic and work from there. Then you will need to use the partition manager (Gparted or similar) to shrink and adjoining partition and to enlarge the one that you want to make larger.  Do NOT work from your installed Ubuntu or you risk making a big mess.

Re: [LINUX_Newbies] browser WINE

What I meant about Corel Draw is that it won't work in Wine.  So you need to use Windows to use Corel Draw. You can do that in two ways. You can run it in Windows if you have access to a Windows computer or if you have a Windows disk then you can make a Virtual Machine in VirtualBox and then install Corel Draw there. The first one is the better option because graphics programmes like Corel Draw require a lot of CPU power and RAM and VMs are limiting since you are running two operating systems at once.

but I cannot understand.

because
it is to fast.

where can I find a workshop
easy easy easy blender

create a ball

make it blue

make textures on it
move the ball a little bit
and then export?

all workshops I found build in the first exercise something like a fish
or a complete room.

Re: [LINUX_Newbies] No Boot after upgrade

 

The resolution to this problem turned out to be simple. This Debian distro makes two boot choices: Normal and Recovery. The Recovery choice appears below the Normal (Default) choice. The Recovery choice booted up fine and after a I booted the Normal copy again, it ran fine. It appears that the Recovery process worked as designed. Thanks for all the Support that you folks provided. It was a good learning lesson for me.

I am running Debian Wheezy and I frequently run

sudo apt-get update

followed by

sudo apt-get upgrade

When I ran the upgrade it restarted a package and recommended a full system restart.

When I did that it hung on the way up. I believe it got past the password point.

The Debian boot always offers a recovery option on boot, I tried it.

The command line asked for a root password and came to a stop displaying

root@debian:~#       prompt.

The help command works here.

My question:

How can I remove that upgrade that I applied?

Re: [LINUX_Newbies] Re: Java FX in Ubuntu

 

 

<snip>
"Ross, 
would you tell me what step of mine was giving this issue?  I will try to figure itout with you."
<snip>
Once I entered the line of code you gave me, I hit the return key.
I wasnt sure If I was supposed to go on to the next sep(5 I think) and add more lines into the code box, before hitting the return key? Its on another machine which isnt on now, so I can get more info later if needed.

 

This is where I was following instructions to add new software to Ubuntu software center;

In the software center, click "edit" at the top left corner, and follow the choices until you get to this box below;

 

SoftwareSources-AddApt2.png

 

SoftwareSources-AddApt2.png

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu

 

To see this link on the internet, Scroll down to:

 

"Adding Other Repositories"

 

This is where I could not find a link to the software download.

I was interested in the second download down, at this link;

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html

jdk-8u5-linux-i586.tar.gz

Hope this is better, I know Im still short on info, but maybe its good for time being..?.

Ross
