No one here has answered his question, of which I have the same question. We use PDAnet, because it hides tether usage, to prevent companies from downgrading your bandwith if you accidentally go over one month, or as in AT&T try and charge you outrageous fees. PDAnet is only $14.00, not $30.00. I have the full version, and its always worked seamlessly. ...

There are two kinds of Ubuntu Live systems- with Persistence and without persistence. If you make a persistent USB drive, the data you create during the session are saved in a casper-rw file. This changes are stored and reflected even after you reboot. A Live system without persistence is reset to the defaults each time it is shutdown. To used a casper-rw ...

The livecd system will charge needed components into the RAM from your usb stick. Every time you will launch a new program it will be loaded from the usb stick image. You user profil is a temporary one and is absolutely not saved. Even if you saved a user folder and mount it as your home, you will have programs preferences but you will have to reinsall ...

This was the same case with me. I'd bought a combo keyboard and mouse, just like yours with a usb receiver. The first time I plugged it in, it was not working, the whole set. Yet, your case looks a little bit different to me. Your keyboard is working but mouse is not. So, first, check if there is any hardware/manufacturing problem with the device. This is ...

Follow these instructions. They may help you. In BIOS, go to UEFI/BIOS boot mode and select Legacy. Change your boot order to have First boot device as USB. Save changes in BIOS and exit. If still your new os doesn't boot, It means that your usb is unbootable. To make a bootable usb for any Linux distro on Linux (other working computer) use UNetbootin. ...

I struggled trying to get my xbox360 wireless controllers working for many many hours in both Ubuntu 12.04/12.04 and Linux Mint 17.2. I would get xboxdrv:cannot configure it (LIBUSB_ERROR_BUSY) if ran under sudo and access denied if ran under regular user. what I found is that the OS had a xpad driver (windows term) installed that was not letting xboxdrv and ...

This problem can happen when you unplug the drive or interrupt it while it is still active. The controller of the drive notices that something went wrong and marks the drive as 'dirty'. It is about the same what can happen with a regular hard drive. A hard drive can usually be repaired by performing automatically or manually a repair action. With flashdrives ...

A SanDisk flash that is permanently "readonly" is only valid for a warranty claim. It cannot be made to work again. Make a backup of your data.

You can try disabling pointer integration by pressing CTRL-I and then just not clicking into the window. That will keep the mouse released from the window and it should work. If not, you can try plugging your PS3 controller in during bootup before it gets to the GUI.

This means that upower is hanging. There are multiple reports about but apparently no solution yet. It seems this is related to failure in reporting the battery status. This related question has more information about it. It suggests a workaround which will probably not work in your situation.

Apps settings are saved on hidden files in user home. Usually in ".config". Use "la" command to see hidden files. I will test copy ".config" and ".local" to your USB: cp -Rf ~/.config ~/.local /path-to-USB/home/user Maybe you will need more files. When you finish your script, you can use udev to copy files when USB is connected: Add a new file called: ...

Not exactly. For a number of reasons, the internal SD card is a subdirectory of /data now (and on ext4). If you use USB Mass Storage, Windows will ask to format that partition and your phone will blow up. For an external SD card, Windows will only see it if you format it via one of the Windows file systems, and then you have pay Microsoft to license the ...

Software such as GPSBabel should help you transfer content between your GPS and the computer.

Then you will need to build it. If your compilation fails, then you ...

Try to check to boot from legacy mode and select boot from USB. Upon this selection your laptop should restart and quickly plugin your bootable USB. I have also encountered the same issue before. Playing around on bios startup fixed it. Hope this works.

Think about it for a minute. When the system has a device mounted (UDF-fs: INFO Mounting volume 'company app', timestamp 2015/04/02 11:22 (1078)). the (in this case) UDF filesystem code reads file indexes, brings the structure of the device into memory, and gets ready to mediate requests for the data. Now, if you format the device, the in-memory copy of UDF ...

I think you might be having one of these problems: Bad memory modules (you can use memtest86+ to check the memory). A bad drive (if possible, try using a different usb drive). A corrupted image (have you run an md5 checksum to verify the image?, if not then please do, and if they don't match, download the iso image again). If the errors are still not ...

Casio provide an application called FA-124 that can be used to transfer files from a Windows computer to a 9860GII or 9750GII (or similar). You could try running this in WINE but this of course isn't an ideal solution since it's not a native application. Alternatively, there's a project written by Andreas Bertheussen called xfer9860. I found this didn't ...

First of all it looks like you downloaded an OEM version of Ubuntu. I suggest installing a normal version from www.ubuntu.com. Also after you installed Ubuntu you need to boot from your HDD, not from the installation media. You need to set it up in bios or just remove the installation media when you are prompted to reboot.

Universal USB Installer has problems on some computers, and doesn't always let you create a bootable drive. Use Rufus, from http://rufus.akeo.ie to make a bootable Ubuntu USB drive. It's efficient, fast, easy-to-use and free.

I'm not entirely sure about why Ubuntu would see one USB versus another other than perhaps file system type or limitations in the guest addition USB handlers. The solution I use is to mount the USB drive (or partition) as an OSX volume and then access it from Ubuntu via VirtualBox. In other words, a bit roundabout compared to mounting the USB drive directly ...

Ubuntu has neat command udisksctl which allows looking up information with the info option on a block device specified with the -b flag. Now, if we scan the output of udiskctl for each block device from a to z, and search for the 'usb' string in it, we can be sure it is a USB device. Bellow is a script that does exactly that: #!/bin/bash FOUND=0 for var ...

Perhaps there are some clues in stackoverflow. What's your output of ls -l /sys/class/tty with and without your device in the USB port?

At least a SanDisk USB flash device turns into persistent "Read only"-mode when it has detected internal trouble that might be a cause for imminent failure.

nice to meet another ham on here. The adaptor likely shows up as a different serial port for each USB port you plug into. That's what happened to me. You might want to try different /dev/ttyS# values and see what works. Good luck

The output of adb indicates it doesn't have permissions to do what it's trying to do. In this case list all connected devices.
