Question about Computers & Internet

Networking with windows

I am new to Linux Ubuntu. I can connect to my window shares from Ubuntu but my windows computers cannot see my Laptop loaded with Ubuntu.

The message I get is" sharing services are not installed" You need to install at least either Samba or NFS in order to share your folders.

Both "install unix netwoks support(NFS) and
Install windows networks support(SMB) are ticked and when I click install I get the same message.

I think Samba common is already installed.

I am using Ubuntu 7.10

Does linux have c: d: etc drives as windows or is it folders?

How do I get to the command prompt to type Linux commands?


I am also having trouble connecting to the internet; is there something like dial-up networking on ubuntu. I do not know how to connect to my service provider.

How can I get my modem to dial my service provider?

Thank you,
Dimitri

Hello there.

Nice to see more people using Linux and Ubuntu. For information on how to share your Ubuntu folder to linux, over file sharing click here

You basically only need to right click the folder you want to share, in Ubuntu, then enable sharing and when prompted to install services, tick the box called 'Install Windows network support'

Hope this helps.

ps: if you haven't seen the Ubuntu community documentation, click here

Can I override the bios at startup so that it will recognize a new hard drive - for linux?


There should be no need to play around with your bios settings. Linux will install on a brand new hard drive as the sole operating system, or on an existing hard drive alongside Windows without any problem.

If you haven't already got a Linux distro, have a look at
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Download whichever version of Ubuntu you prefer (LTS- the long term support version is recommended).

When the .iso file containing the operating system had downloaded, burn it onto a dvd, or install it on a usb drive.

Insert the dvd into the drive and restart or switch off/switch on the computer. The dvd will then kick in and offer you the choice of trying Ubuntu without installing, or a full install.

If you're using a new, empty hard drive just follow the on screen instructions and Ubuntu will install as the sole operating system.

If you already have Windows on your hard drive Ubuntu will give you the choice of either erasing Windows or installing Ubuntu alongside Windows. It's your choice.

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows creates a dual boot hard drive. At start up you just choose which OS to use - Windows or Ubuntu. If creating this dual-boot system Ubuntu puts a (Linux) boot loader into the Windows OS so that Linux is recognised.

If you save the Ubuntu file to a usb drive you then have to change the bios settings so that your computer uses USB as the first boot device. Then restart your computer so that it boots in from your usb .. and Ubuntu will begin installing.

Whichever you use - dvd or usb - during the installation process Ubuntu will ask you how many GB of hard drive space it should use? You do not need to physically partition the hard drive. Linux will do it for you.

If it's a desktop PC you are using with Windows on the first hard drive and are fitting a second hard drive to install Linux on, or have installed Linux on the second hard drive .. and find that Linux doesn't appear at start up, it's because there's no Linux boot loader in Windows.

I quit using Windows many years ago.

If i install ubuntu do i need my drivers for my computer like if i reinstall windows?


If you install Ubuntu (Linux), you will need a new set of drivers for Linux, you cannot use Windows drivers.
Most will come the distribution.
If not, you must contact the manufacturers for a Linux version of the driver that will work with your version of Ubuntu.

Uninstall os linux ubuntu 13.10 from my laptop


Are you dual booting? Windows and Ubuntu? What version of Windows? You maybe able to reclaim the space by using the Disk Management (right click "My Computer" select Manage then select Disk Management). In there you will see NTFS for your Windows partitions, and something like Unknown for the linux ones, you can then delete the linux partition and possibly extend your NTFS partition to use the free space (depending on version of windows).
If this is a standalone Ubuntu install, you should be able to just use the installer disk for another OS and boot it to reformat the drive.
good luck!

Sir pls quick heal antivirus pro 2011 product key sir pls send my email ankitkothiyal15@gmail.com


You can use 'Safe mode with networking' (press F8 when computer start few times in 1 second interval, and menu with this option will come). Going to ESET (Nod32) Online Scanner:
http://go.eset.com/us/online-scanner

Scan computer with recover-cleaning option on.
Some viruses are hard to clean, and one of option is using live CD linux (Mint) and share partitions, and than connect with network cable and clean with antivirus from another computer.

You have free good AVG antivirus (for home users).

Windows without antivirus is very bad thing.

For that purpose, I use linux Mint (based Ubuntu and Debian). And don't need antivirus software.
Good luck!

I have OS as windows xp.I have 1 GB RAM.Then I want to install the ubuntu and use it.I dono to install.My friends told that 1 GB Ram can"t access the installation well. Then what is the solution to install...


Hello Sir,

I am sure your system meets the normal requirement for installing and using the Ubuntu OS. So you dont have to worry about the system speed and perfomance. I have also sent you the link to download the latest version of Ubuntu OS 10.4 from the original website. All you need to do is download it and burn that image file using nero or any image burning software to the dvd and boot the dvd in your system and install it.

How can i install Linux OS on my laptop? please help


do you want to have Linux while you are also having Windows? Then is will be a dual boot. To do this, have another partition of your hard disk empty. Like C (windows) and Drive E(free partition).
Download the latest version of ubuntu linux and use the bootable cd to install ubuntu on the other partition

HP Pavillion ze5600 notebook won't boot up


Try booting, hit F8 for the list, go to safe mode but right after you hit enter to go into safe mode hold the left and right <ctrl> keys. That loads minimal amount of drivers as possible. Do you have you Win XP disk in case a repair is needed? Let me know what happens.
