    Dual Booting causing failure to boot into either OS

    Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi oi oi - I'm from Queensland. Regrets on the delays, I am working on two large projects for two members, one of them in need of help before his system falls over. Thanks for the info from msinfo32.exe for Win 7. One things Win 7's version lacks, introduced in Win 8...

    18.04 dose not support Scanner HP 2620 officejet

    Peter, Peter, you old dog, it's been ages. :) Peter has actually been around for closer to 2 years than not, but been quiet for much of that time - 18 months or more, I figure. You're getting good help from above, so I won't intrude unless all efforts fail, but I will watch for a...

    adding more space and moving partition

    Hendricks, G'day. Were you trying to unmount the partition from within your Linux install, that is, on the HDD, or were you trying to unmount it from a Live Linux USB stick or LIve Gparted stick. If you were trying the former - can't be done. Safety measure by GParted that you cannot...

    Greeting and salutations

    Hard to be off-topic here in Member Introductions, Christi :) You can make do with half a dozen "Hello and Welcome" 's, or we can have a gasbag (chew the fat) and get to know each other better. Your call. We had a wonderful time 2 years ago with a fellow from Croatia name of @finrodfelagund_...

    Greeting and salutations

    And we will look forward to "having your back" if you need us :) (Wizard appears in a puff of smoke) G'day Christi and welcome to linux.org :) Yeah, Brian above is an Aussie too. You've got some good material to read above, and links to follow to. If or when you have digested that, and...

    Distro Recommendation

    Close - it runs on QEMU, which means Quick EMUlator. QEMU can be used as a virtual environment to run Linux, Windows, Solaris, BSD and other OSes. It is available in most Distro's Repositories, not sure about Slackware. Checked that, it is - Google search slackware install qemu It is one of...

    Dual Booting causing failure to boot into either OS

    Sounds like me. (Wizard appears in a puff of smoke) G'day from DownUnder, @Jaylu and welcome to linux.org :) Mate let's just clarify a few points - Is Win 7 the only OS installed to your hard drive? And you have either a full install of Lubuntu to the USB stick, or you have Lubuntu...

    Just a Wonderin'

    OK, guess we are whistling in the wind until the OP can tell us what Browser he is using. :) Naaahh, I'm joshing you :D If this is not the definitive answer, then it's my best for now, and I have to go fry more fish elsewhere on the forum (& kill some spammers). I started thinking of wget...

    Just a Wonderin'

    Then how about this one? Free version and Pro version. It saves to PDF and displays it onscreen - too small but 250% was about right for me. Then save download, open that in Firefox and Automatic Zoom makes it fine for me, addresses those issues that Stan has above, too.

    Just a Wonderin'

    Would something like this be suitable? Save the file to say Downloads, then in Firefox (did we ask what Browser?) File - open - (navigate to file) and click Edit - added BTW BTW I'll play with this, might have to tweak between portrait and landscape to get all print, but shows promise.

    Slow going...

    Sue, this article might be of use to you, it is on light-weight browsers, alternative to Firefox. Of the ones listed, I have tried 4 or 5, so sing out if you want any help. They all have their pros and cons, and a bit of learning curve goes with it...

    Question about which flavour or build is most suitable

    Manjaro is one of my faves, and Xfce desktop environment (DE) one of those, as seen below, with my Grub Menu This is 2 years old, so 1GB RAM may be pushing it. There are others we can recommend if need be. If you live near where a "computer swap meet" is held or conducted, you may be able...

    adding more space and moving partition

    No need, and thanks for the info. :) I've pu together the first of a small series of vids, view it a couple of times - I made a couple of boo-boos that I won't repeat, so see if you get the gist, and go ahead and fix that /boot. When you use your USB stick, don't choose to install, just do it...

    automatic backup service for Linux, why not?

    Mate, I'd like to put a sad and happy above but I think I can only put one (unless I cast a spell). I could flesh out what I was saying above, but I think you know enough to fill in the blanks without me feeling a need to air my cyber literary voice. :) I'll give you an example of what I found...
