Ubuntu/Linux compatibility

Q: Ubuntu/Linux compatibility

Hi, I am planning to buy a HP notebook and want to run it as a Win10/Ubuntu dual boot. I would like to buy either the HP Spectre x360 13-4116na or HP ENVY x360 15-w101na.I have seen threads in this and other forums that a dual boot is possible and that there are some problems with the sound, but that there are solutions for these problems. But I have seen threads complaining about problems with graphic cards and especially some people saying that they deliberately chose NOT a QHD screens as if Ubuntu would not be able to deal with this higher resolution. Sounds unlikely to me, but could this pose a problem for Ubuntu with those two models I mentioned? Thanks for helping me to choose the right computer.ToruOkada

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Folks, Lets start by saying I am a complete nerd with computers so simple answers would be the best, I can follow instructions. I have just bought an Acer Aspire one aoa150 from a friend, it has Linux Ubuntu installed on it but it looks like it originally had windows xp installed on it has it has windows keycode on the bottom of it, the battery is not charging correctly only lasts for about 15 minutes when fully charged and charges to full power in about 10 minutes I know I might have to buy a new battery, I have read numerous accounts about this problem and it seems that it could be that it needs the a BIOS upgrade but the upgrade looks like it is a windows upgrade, so I would like to change it back to xp, looked all over the internet for answers but there are so many conflicting and convoluted views on how to do this. I am totally lost. Please help if you can. Thanks very much

Win 7/Win XP/Ubuntu Linux Tri-boot

I have a PC that is currently a dual boot between Windows 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu Linux 8.04 (Hardy Heron). The two operating systems are on separate physical drives. Ubunutu is on the PC?s original 250 gig drive (the primary) and Win 7 is on a 1 TB Seagate internal drive that I added later (the slave).

I already discussed dual booting with Ubuntu and Win 7 on a Linux forum. I installed each OS completely independently of the other. I installed Ubuntu first without the other drive installed. I later disconnected the 250 GB primary drive and installed Windows 7 to the 1 TB drive as if Ubuntu were not even present on the PC. Later I reconnected and edited a file known as menu.lst in Ubuntu?s feature known as ?Grub?. Grub looks at the file and gives me the choice of Windows 7 or Ubuntu when I boot up.

Now it?s a long story, but I need to add Windows XP to my choices. I?m told on the Ubuntu forum that I can temporarily disconnect the Ubuntu drive and set up XP on the 1 TB drive as a dual boot with Bootloader handling the choice between Win 7 and XP. The idea is to get it running right and later reconnect the Ubuntu drive. Grub will give me the choice between Ubuntu and Windows; then if I choose Windows, Bootloader will give me the choice between Win 7 and XP. I could live with that.

So the Ubuntu drive is disconnected. We don?t have to worry about that in this thread. If I have any trouble with Grub, I?ll... Read more

Tom, I think the answer to your question is on the first sentence of the Tutorial how to load the SATA drivers: "When you install Win XP, setup can not find your Hard Drive."

So, if setup can find your HD, you should be good to go.

One remark: installing XP after Windows 7 is a bit more complicated, you will have to repair Windows 7 boot file to add XP. You have mentioned the tutorial, so you shoudl be good to go. I just highlight it since it can be a stumbling block.

Regarding the floppy disk thing, from what I know it is XP's idiosyncrasy, it doesn't allow drivers to be loaded with USB drives. It is from a time there were no USB drives...

Which video chip? Intel or nVidia? I might actually suggest Ubuntu 16.10 to better support the newest hardware. I am actually sending this on a 6th gen HP laptop with Intel video running Kubuntu 16.04 which is Ubuntu with the KDE desktop instead of the default Gnome. You don't ever expect Linux to "just work"; it often requires some tweaks but the support community is second to none and I guarantee you can get all the hardware working as long as you have some basic Linux skills or are willing to acquire them.

Hi,

Ubuntu Linux version 10.04
Intel® Celeron™ Processor ULV U3400 (2M Cache, 1.06GHz, 800 MHz FSB)
Aberdeen Silver for WLAN

Mobile Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator HD (Intel GHA HD)
Dell Wireless 1702 802.11n/BT3.0 Combo

For the $450 price point, I really like what is being offered, except that I don't want Linux as the OS and would rather install Windows 7. I recently did purchase Windows 7 so I was wondering if it is possible to install Windows 7 in place of Linux OS that it comes with?

Since there is not CD/DVD-Rom, what would be the best option to do it?

In addition, is the process of deleting Linux and installing Windows 7 pretty complicated? I just dont want to mess up the laptop, like drivers etc. If Windows 7 can be installed, only then will I purchase this laptop.

I've been trying to find a proper instructions link to do the above, but no such luck so far.

Any advice will be highly appreciated.

hi guys,

for those who doesn't know , Kali Linux (ex-Backtrack) is a powerful forensic distro based on Debian, but many of us use Ubuntu (or variants) because it is easier to handle.

so in this tutorial, i will show you how to proceed to add Kali repositories to get Kali tools in Ubuntu.

i am using Kubuntu Trusty personally so this tutorial will reflect it; you have to adjust the procedure slightly if you use Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu or/and with an older kernel

1- open your Software Center/Manager, the application that allows you to pick various softwares (Muon Discover, etc..)

2- go to each link below, click on technical details , select your ubuntu version; important , Trusty is not available yet so you have to choose Raring instead.


Code:
https://launchpad.net/~wagungs/+archive/ubuntu/kali-linux

https://launchpad.net/~wagungs/+archive/ubuntu/kali-linux1

https://launchpad.net/~wagungs/+archive/ubuntu/kali-linux2
3- click on Source tab , then "add source"



Spoiler


4- copy the links below then add them one by one in order to the source (step 3).
For example for my Kubuntu Trusty 14.04 i have to use Raring


Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux/ubuntu raring main

Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux1/ubuntu raring main

Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux2/ubuntu raring main
5- close and relaunch your software center to see if the lines above are added.

A:Motherboard with Ubuntu/Linux support

Is there a specific component on that motherboard that you're having problems with? I can't imagine that the motherboard is not "compatible" with linux - in fact, I've found threads with people using Ubuntu with that mobo. I also find it odd that you'd have a Windows Vista issue with that mobo since most of the users I see online who use it are running Vista or 7 64-bit. Perhaps you have a faulty motherboard and it's not a problem with the model itself.

The reason I want to replace Ubuntu is because my Lite On SATA CDburner / DVD burner combo drives DOES not exist peroid to it, and since IM a linux newbie and the Linux pros are basically being useless to me by not even seeming interested in helping me (some community heh) and the ones that are trying to help dont speak newb, or are just as confused as I am.

and IM sure you agree with thats the ONLY Disk drive on your computer and you cant use it with the OS of choice, its time to find another OS!

So Im going to be using Linux to surf the web, download, play music, burn cds in mp3 format to listen to in my car, chat with friends, and do basic general use stuff, and just keep my dual boot of XP for playing video games.

But it would fail to wake properly - I had to cycle the power and reboot. I would always be jealous of the Pop!-OS users who had sleep/wake long ago. But the upgrade to 19.04 brought sleep/wake to Ubuntu too, even with two external displays: a 4K on the USB-C/DisplayPort, and a HD on HDMI. Jim

A:Ubuntu Linux 7.04 Does not recongize the existance of my CD Drive!!!

Please someone help me here. After all the trouble I went though getting Linux on this computer (just error after error until I reburned 7.04 live cd to a cd at 1x burn speed instead of max speed and it installed fine) It figures Id get a Problem when the OS is actually installed.... I swear If stuff like this keeps up Its gonna turn a Linux Newb into a linux hater, Its my first time using the OS and so far the Ubuntu Forums are proving to be slow and not giving me any fix suggestions.

I have a Lite On CD burner/DVD burner Combo Drive, (SATA)

Unable to mount the selected volume
mount: special device /dev/scd0 does not exist

Hello,

I am currently running a dual boot setup with Ununtu 12.10 x64 and Windows 7 Home Premium x64 I was wondering if I could add Linux Mint 14 to the setup. Is this possible? I tried installing it 'alongside windows' but it said i have to uninstall Ubuntu. I haven't done that much work with system booting as of yet but i catch on pretty quick with this sort of stuff. Also, does anyone have a link to where I could download the correct version of Linux Mint 14 for my PC? I have downloaded one already but am not sure whether or not it is the right one. Then name is 'linuxmint-14.1-mate-dvd-64bit.iso'. I would also like a link to a detailed tutorial on how to setup what I'm looking for and a list of recommended software (I've got Paragon Partition Manager 12 and EasyBCD 2.2).

Thanks in advance,

TheDoctor1212

A:Multiboot: Windows 7, Ubuntu 12.10, Linux Mint 14?

It should be possible, I used to have a tripple boot myself for a while. Just make sure you add Mint to Grub.

Current version of Mint:
Download - Linux Mint

Oke, first you'll need to check if you have an empty partition to install Mint on. If not, create one.
You can check this in "disk management".

If you have enough partitions Ubuntu should stop giving you the uninstall message, and Mint should just install itself using the default installer.

And for the detailed toturial:
Video toturial
Official user guide

And finally the software:
Lots and lots of programs
The official Linux Mint software portal (I recommend using this one)

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!

It's time for a "war"!

For this round, the user audience is from new users to Linux to intermediate users of Linux.

All distros are built upon the Ubuntu Family, offering several desktop environments (DE) to custom built ones.

This time no poll will be selected. Instead, in hopes to achieve not only discussion but helpful feedback for anyone reading this forum, we will do a slight different thing. Feel free to research on Distrowatch, reviews up on Distrowatch and even on personal testing and usage preference to list:

*Overall distro that works best out of the box for new user (list name of distro + DE)

*Ease of use in general for new user (list name of distro + DE)

*Lowest Resource usage distro (list name of distro + DE)

*Drivers support:

To note: some distros only offer specific DE, so some cannot simply be compared to others, but any feedback is welcome. Also, all of them have access to Ubuntu's repositories and can be maintained/upgraded accordingly.

For reference:
Ubuntu Family:
Ubuntu - Unity Desktop Environment(based off Gnome) (targeted at mid end to high end computers for optimal performance)
Kubuntu - KDE Desktop Environment (targeted at mid end to high end computers for optimal performance)
Xubuntu - Xfce Desktop Environment (targeted at low to mid end computers for optimal performance)
Lubuntu - LXDE Desktop Environment (targeted at low to mid end computers for optimal performance)
