When I attempted to boot Ubuntu via the Windows Boot Manager (changed from GRUB via EasyBCD), this showed up, and fixing it via Windows recovery media does not work, requiring me to configure the UEFI to boot from GRUB in order to boot Ubuntu. What should I do?

+Elroy Goh​​ it won't detect windows initially, but log into your Ubuntu,(make sure you're using the Ubuntu boot loader in BIOS) open a terminal and type sudo update-grub. When you reset you will see windows.

The Incredible Power Of The Right Questions

There is incredible power in asking the right questions, and following the answers where they lead - especially when they lead to uncomfortable places.

Hey all. New user here. I'm exploring the included software packages with Ubuntu 14.04 and I'm not too happy with RythmBox. I like the interface and what it ought to be able to do (sort the library like iTunes, manage podcasts, etc) but it doesn't work very well. Can anyone recommend an alternative?

+Jim Wyss You mean it crashes or hangs? I used to have some problems ocassionally, but it works fine now. Try updating Rhythmbox from +david mohammed 's PPA: ppa:fossfreedom/rhythmbox.

Someone that could not even figure out basic functionality (e.g. notifications) was able to write 4 500 word on this OS. There are various bugs reported here that have already been fixed, which further hints at a review made on an outdated version.


Apart from the mindless bashing, what really amazes me is the amount of times Convergence is referenced: exactly zero! And again, on a 4 500 word article.This what is new about this OS and why it has already acquired a relevant user base.


One of the obvious things omitted in this article is that X.Org applications already run on the Ubuntu Phone OS. This not only deals away with the "few apps" argument, as it shows that the path to Convergence is at this stage mostly on the hardware side.


Once Convergent hardware is there I will surely become an Ubuntu Phone OS user. No amount of reviewer bashing will ever deter me.

Scopes is a but a minute aspect of this OS. When I finally get an Ubuntu Phone enabled device I will very likely deactivate it.

Hello all. Question for the gamers here: what's the deal with the MMORPG scene? Can't seem to find any good ones native to linux, and the Windows ones won't run properly though Wine.

Still a bit of a newbie myself, but if anyone has any helpful insight it would be appreciated.

Lord of th Rings Online runs out of the box via wine 1.7.47. And you can specify OpenGL in the userpref.ini.

Might seem old though...

There is no "hate". Everything ok.

That's simply organized by Microsoft, trying to split that UBUNTU movement, taking away that "profitable app store" from Canonical.

UBUNTU, as kind of Debian Professional, simply has gotten too strong.

So, UBUNTU MATE organisator simply received some "sponsorship" through dubious channels. That money, in fact, is coming from Microsoft. Same for that GNOME sudden advances. Financed by Microsoft.

Why
echo -e "\nUnity" > /dev/null 
from basic poll options ? 

#poll   #opensource   #desktops   #unity   #ubuntu  
We've chosen a few desktop environments in this poll, but there are many more. Which is your favorite and why? You can tell us in the comments, or even submit an article about it.

I agree with Nik (and I've published on their site). The issue you pointed out is almost certainly due to the particular biases and limitations of the human being who wrote the article (the author), not editorial policy.

Can it use the ISU? Otherwise it is useless outside the US.

hey everyone.
ive been using the "unofficial whatsapp" app for linux.
but just recently when i open it. it gives me some info about a browser to download rather than send me to my whatsapp profile and contacts list.i deleted the app and re-downloaded it but with the same result.
what gives?
has facebook shut down the app or is it suddenly discontinued?
if so, is there an alternative to this app for whatsapp for linux pc? thanks
