Plex can use your local computer as a media server. Your details sounds like you are already running Plex under Windows which is serving the media from the attached drives. You can do the same thing if you install Plex to Ubuntu. Ubuntu will be your server. The devices is unaware of the server operating system. It just receives the media streams from ...

Under Windows, do a chkdsk /f x: where x: is the drive letter of the Windows USB disk. Furthermore, disable hibernation on Windows and always correctly shut it down completely. This is also a bit off-topic here as it's a purely Windows solution, so in the future remember that this site is all about Ubuntu and the people here are very good at dual-booting ...

I had the same problem using Ubuntu 14.04. Tried with Remmina, 2XRDP and rdesktop - no audio with any of them. Looked around and found reference to the "esound" package on the 2X site. Installed it using sudo apt-get install esound and in response got the message: Note, selecting 'pulseaudio-esound-compat' instead of 'esound' ... but it installed and ...

I found the solution. When first installing Linux, I am asked where I want to install the BootLoader (on the partition screen), and the default selection is the live disk itself. I changed that to the drive (SDA), and that did the trick. Looks like it was trying to temporarily write files from the disk to the disk, instead of the hard drive. Hope this is ...

After having first tried installing the Guest additions, which didn't work, I found another solution elsewhere: linuxbsdos.com. Use Xdiagnose from the Dashboard. Search for and launch Xdiagnose, then enable all the options under the Debug section. Click the Apply button, then close the window and restart the system. That's what finally did the trick! Now ...

Choose the option to install beside windows. It will give you the option of resizing windows partition if necessary. Also, you can open Disks or Gparted to see the list of partitions.

You don't need Windows or a Windows license to use Wine. Still, not all Windows-software is usable with wine, as it works like a mediator between Linux and the software. I don't know this Indiabulls thingy, but you could try it. If Wine doesn't work, you could still run it in a virtual machine like VMware or VirtualBox. That would require a Windows ...

Gparted will be needed for the following. And a Ubuntu live USB/CD/DVD. Provided the windows and Ubuntu partitions are next to each other, you should be able to delete the windows partition by right clicking on it and clicking delete, then right clicking the Ubuntu partition, select the resize/move option and using up the space windows originally had.

It might be or might not be possible depending on your partition layout. You can install GParted from Ubuntu Software Center and try to delete the Windows partition and make some free space. Then you might be able to Extend the size of the Ubuntu partition. You should do this using an Ubuntu Live CD. You have proceed with caution. You may want to read ...

Johnathon I will explain how I installed Ubuntu along side with Windows 7. Just like you I have also used an USB device to install the OS. When the it asks for where to install, i.e, if you want to install along side with windows or to completely wipe the hardrive and install it as new or something else, select the last option and proceed.

There should not be any issue loading from different disks (at least with grub2). Here is an easy tool you can use to edit grub https://launchpad.net/grub-customizer. Just add a new entity and choose your partition from the other disk

Have you checked, if the Windows partitions are still available. For instance in you file-manager (nautilus) or a partition tool like "disks" (not sure about the name, as I run a German version) or gparted. If the Windows-partition are gone - sorry, but you lost Win. If the Windows-partition(s) is/are still on the disk, open a terminal and run sudo ...

I would recommend you to manually select (considering you create them first) separate partitions for ubuntu. My current setup: C (win8.1) D (NTFS shared with both windows and ubuntu) an extended partition containing an ext4 (mount point /) and a swap check out this link, a very descriptive step by step

Usually there is a service key or shortcut that resets the BIOS/UEFI to defaults, e.g. hold PgUp while switching the power on. You could maybe google whether such a key is existing for your machine or UEFI. Once that is done, you will be able to access the BIOS again!

The graphical way as mentioned before: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/04/install-grub-customizer-ubuntu-1404/ The Application is not in the Repositories of your Software Center by default.

Boot from live usb Take backup of important data Delete the partitions properly Format with desired OS

You have installed Ubuntu in legacy mode and Windows in UEFI mode, so you now have to "switch" between OSes using the UEFI menu... You cannot use grub to switch between OSes as that is unavailable in UEFI mode as you didn't install it in UEFI mode! So, this is absolutely normal behaviour for the installation type you've chosen.

I think you made a mistake while partitioning the drive, so most probably the Windows 7 is formatted or else it should have showed up in output of fdisk -l command. One final solution you can try is re-installing GRUB BOOT REPAIR. Type these commands in terminal. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y ...

I try and install Windows 7 such that all drivers will work. Then I install Ubuntu 14.04 alongside this. Will this possibly make it work? No. The 2 operating systems have no correlation. Besides that: You are taking your Windows experience to another operating system. That is never a good idea. Ubuntu does not work like Windows and the system we are ...

I solved this by using an external device, like a pc controller with analog sticks, then mapped the mouse directions to the right analog stick, and you could map left and right mouse click to two buttons using a free program Joy To Key. At least that way, when you turn off mouse integration in virtual box, you can move the pointer around with the ...

The most likely issue is how you created the boot disk, and which kernel it uses. This is a problem with trying to create the 'boot disk' on Windows/Mac (ie. not Ubuntu). Use a USB stick instead, and its much faster. The cheats method is Ask A Friend. Get someone to create a USB boot stick on their copy of Ubuntu. Otherwise, look it up. You need a Windows ...

It will just delete old Windows in C drive and leave other data existed in D drive? It will delete all Windows partitions. The partitioner will assume that all NTFS disks belong to Windows and delete it. It will then create 1 big disk to install Ubuntu. If you do not want this and want the partitions to be split into / and /home/ or /, /home/, ...

First of all: this is a hardware issue. On the inside of the hard disk, bits are packed more densely then on the outside of the hard disk, so the noise is different. (And just by your description, without hearing the noise I can deduce that Ubuntu is on the outside of the disk) Secondly, it's a really really small partition, so it gets the worst of the ...

I don't know what the Upgrade will do with the Windows files, but I am quite sure that it will restore the boot loader to Microsoft, so your GRUB boot menu will be gone and the machine would boot straight into Windows, I suppose. But this can be fixed: Follow this answer here (maybe print it out) after the Upgrade, to restore the GRUB and fix the dual-boot. ...

I too had the same need. I followed the following steps: sudo apt-get install startupmanager Enter password and hit 'Y' to complete the installation. Once installed, start the StartUp-Manager.

A .tar.gz is just a compressed archive, equivalent to a .zip; they can contain anything. In the sense you mean though —distributing applications— source archives are not the primary way we install things in Ubuntu. They aren't trying to be the Linux-equivalent of an .exe installer. Here's what we have in the order I would expect somebody to need them: The ...

Just from reading your first error message ("mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/media/winusb_iso_1423415599_8150’: Permission denied") it looks like you need more permission to create directories in `/media'. If you appended sudo to the start of your command, it would run winusb as root and give it permission to create (and delete) just about everything: ...

If you don't have a Windows repair/recovery disc (which can be used to fix the bootloader), and don't have a copy of Ubuntu or some other Linux installed elsewhere (which can also be used to fix the bootloader), you may boot from a LiveCD of Ubuntu and then move the bootloader to Windows: sudo apt-get install lilo sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr To check which ...

1. Check that you have burned the correct image Make sure the image that you downloaded was a x32 image. 2. Try reinstalling the image I've used Pen Drive Linux in the past, but for live USBs. Maybe it will help with some issues, but do some research first. I'm not sure if it will work on hard drives since it is meant for USBs.

This is very probably a damaged DVD. (scratch) If you really need a DVD, just burn the ISO file onto a new DVD disk or continue using the USB stick. Note to the low quality reviewers: Yeah, that's it! :P

What always worked for me is to mount the shared folder of the Windows host to the vmware guest linux machine via CIFS. Let's suppose that your hosted machine is connected to a virtual network (network type is not relevant) with an ip address range 192.168.5.0/24, your host machine (windows) address should be 192.168.5.1: First set password to your Windows ...
