I recently installed Ubuntu live 13.10 its been a fun learning experience.
However I am reading all the help files on permissions to determine why I the owner of my own computer that I purchaced with my hard earned money does not allow me to do simple things like write a bios update CD/DVD.
I have read help online, Ubuntus help. I did everthing that was asked and mentioned and more. I am still unable to own my computer. This is somewhat nerve racking to own something and have it tell you sorry you don't own me.
The question at hand involves burning a DVD .iso of an updated bios version. I've installed a few programs that indicate they are the supreme comanders of .iso burn technology.
I keep getting messages after waiting 20 minutes to burn a few kb's. These messages are disk drive unmounted. And unable to determine file permissions. I tried to change file permissions with no luck. The file manager will not allow me to resize columns, so that I may see the information presented.
I believe this is way to long to spend on a simple problem. Im starting to believe I have a gremlin in my Ubuntu that is stopping me at or redirecting me down endless dead ends. This may be the problem.
How bout any programs that look for gremlins ?
Is there a help menu that actually looks for what you ask for ?
Or am I the only one in the universe that types in the search bar only to find a message that no such topic exists ?
I find it hard to believe when you have an issue with the DVD-R there is no information upon request that is searchable.
Some one please help. even if the solution is to toss this fricking computer out the window.
I thought I was done with window payne when I came to Ubuntu. Guess not.
