I am Scottish and I live in Hungary, there was this girl.... you know the rest. As far as me and Ubuntu are concerned I found it about when 9.04 came out I was still using Xp at the time I had a lot of difficulty's getting it working on my system at the time (I admit it I gave up) But a seed was planted. Little did I know that in 6 months that seed would turn in to a tree just in time for a Koala to sit in it (talk about milking the metaphor). At the time I had Vista on a laptop which managed to kill the hard disk (no proof just a hunch). But the difference in performance and stability was awesome (dude) and I have been using Ubuntu and other flavours of Linux since. I believe we have only scratched the surface of what is possible, the future is bright the future is a penguin? One thing I will always remember is Ubuntu and what the word means, Learn it Live it.

what I would suggest is running dolphin from the command line like this dolphin > stdout.txt 2> stderr.txt and make a file transfer after this has completed add the output from both files (if any) to your question

comment How to partition Ubuntu 13.10 in order to install windows 7? NO DUAL BOOT
Won't the windows install disk automatically overwrite the Ubuntu install with its own partitioning? Or are you asking this as you want to transfer files to the new windows install from Ubuntu before getting rid of it?
