If you are using the government supplied laptop with Linux os, try 'root' as the password. In most of the cases it works.

Ubuntu has Two different passwords a root password and a user password. When you say you do not have a password you mean a user password. The System is looking for a root password. It asked you for one when you installed the system. If you do not know it the only way I know to get around it is to reinstall. Ubuntu and most linux distro is free. Download one and make a cd or dvd then reinstall if you do not have one.

so you know that the game is running on other devices so it has to be a problem with the phone,, have you check your apps cache.. sometimes apps wont load/run if there is to little space on the memory/ram part of your phone.. try clearing data/cache on the app (NOT UNINSTALL) this should work.. with apps you dont use but are part of the phone do whats called a roll back by uninstalling updates.. then go into your settings look for update permissions and select ask before update . This way you keep your internal memory space free. and your system working faster

Available updates won't update says I need to to go to prevail@mac.com, don't understand the process


Hi
Where are these updates coming from?
Apple's updates come automatically on some systems and from the App store on others. App store ones will ask for your apple ID password in order to download. Others come via Software update and ask for your computer password in order to install.
Be wary of any system updates that are outside these two parameters that ask for passwords.
Your phrase 'I need to go to prevail@mac.com is something I have never seen before. Who is prevail@mac.com?

I have a single installation of Ubuntu 11.10. How do I remove it and install Windows 7? Have tried from the Windows boot disk but I dont know what my drive letter is as Ubuntu does not name it????


Hi,
You can use the windows disk to over-write the ubuntu installation. Just boot from the windows disk, and when it asks where to install, tell it to format the disk and create a partition from the unpartitioned space. Windows will format the disk and you should be good to go. Keep in mind, everything on the disk will be lost.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF UBUNTU USER:VISTA MICROSOFT OFFICE


Ubuntu is an open source operating system. With a Linux based system, there is no worry of gaining a virus, as well as all the security needed is built in from out of the box. With Microsoft Windows, you would need to worry about virus, hackers, etc. In a world where most of the security vulnerabilities are coming from third-party applications, Windows and Mac machines are at significant risk because they run lots of these apps and those apps aren't always updated automatically, which leaves the machines open to attacks. Again, to be clear, both Microsoft and Apple have comprehensive updating systems for their software - both the OS as well as company apps that run on top of the OS. The problem is with the software (programs, extensions, and plug-ins) from other vendors and the inconsistent methods they use for updating their code to protect against known flaws. With Ubuntu, there's one comprehensive software updating system. This is possible because Ubuntu has a centralized repository of applicationsand the only third-party applications that make it into the main repository are the ones that have been tested by Canonical (the company that produces Ubuntu) and are proven to work with the OS. This means that the Ubuntu main repository doesn't always have the very latest version of Firefox, for example, but you can be sure that the one it does have will typically install easy, work smoothly, and remain updated automatically. And, while iPhone and Android have a mix of free apps and paid apps, the apps in the Ubuntu Software Center are nearly all open source and free of charge. Like iPhone and Android, you have to sort through a fair amount of chaff in order to get to the wheat, but it's still a terrific 21st century computing experience. Both Windows and Mac need to learn from the app experience that is driving the mobile device market. Ubuntu has already beaten them to the punch.

If you add that to the fact that Ubuntu does a better job with software updates (a big security boost), then Ubuntu becomes a much more viable alternative for modern PC users, especially those who access most of their services and enterprise apps via a Web browser.

Ubuntu Change Root Password


Nelson,

This is the way i do it, maye there's an other way.

Ubuntu has no set password for the root user. The defult root password is your own user password, the password you set for the first user while installing Ubuntu.

These are the steps to change the password -

1.Applicatons > Accessories > Terminal.
2.In the new window that opens write "sudo passwd".
3.the system will ask for the new root password.
