  • Just an average guy trying to do my best to follow our Jesus Christ

_ In regards to Linux use. I'm pretty much only a user of Ubuntu and its derivatives (Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Gnome 3.x Varieties, and Elementary OS are my favorites) I'm not at all an advanced user and am only on my first few chapters of a beginners programming book (that went back to library, might buy it later when time and funds allow). So most answers I give won't be particularly technical unless I'm able to find tutorials or other kinds of information when searching for the answer.

_ I like to think of my self as a mix of average user in always wanting my software to be aesthetically pleasing, but more power user in how i tend to "stress" a system. A programmer's and developer's worst case scenario I think. :-)

comment How do I install Ubuntu to a USB key? (without using Startup Disk Creator)
Do Intel Atoms have the "inbuilt" virtualization support? My system monitor says its this one. Intel® CPU U2700 @ 1.30GHz. Would use my much more powerful desktop, but the Power Supply died a few months ago. :-(

comment Can ubuntu be installed on a USB 3.0, not talking about live usb, i want to install it on usb itself?
Can we please reopen this question? Or atleast supply links to other questions with confirmed answers? The below answer does not solve the question, because the user didn't fully understand the question. Startup Disk Creator can only be used on USB flash drives upto 4 GB. Anything larger, and the extra space will just be left empty. I am wanting to do this same thing. Have a Live USB that is atleast 16 to 32 GB. Installing to the USB flash drive the way he suggests doesn't work for me either. Ubiquity crashes everytime after a certain percentage point. Please provide more links to information

comment Does Ubuntu App Showdown Allow Inventive Games?
Sorry to bother again, but would you know of any good write ups on how to integrate an app into the Quicklists? Preferably for beginners, as I am still very new at learning python. Thank you for anything you can come up with. :-D

comment Problems starting to use Launchpad
Awesome, Thank you sir!! I'm getting ready to run that command right now. But then how do I choose exactly which file I want to upload? Sorry, I'm extremely new at this, I tried watching the different videos I found on the developer.ubuntu.com. But they didn't seem to cover these indepth details. Edit P.S. I seen your video on Quickly, and it was really informative on Python and the Quickly program. But I'm using Illumination Software Creator cause it require zero coding experience. Even for a web browser. Not always as attractive looking. But a really good start. :-)

Sorry it took so long to reply. But I just did try to find the contact info. And they only offer Email support. Which would be fine. But they require my full home address and and phone number, even though it will only be a Email conversation. I just have a policy of never giving out more info than is really needed. But I did do they test someone else described with the paper clip to by pass the power switch. And nothing happened at all. So I'll be looking for the best deal on PSU's when I have the money. Thank you all!!! God Bless

comment Why Won't my computer turn on?
Thank you @Rob. Though this is a pre-built machine from Medion. And I'm pretty sure the maunals that came with it didn't have any Mo.Bo. information. But in the first screen on booting normally it says American Trends I think. Is there a site that I can just look up that MoBo manufacuter?

Thank you @GeppettvsD'Constanzo!! I'll try that later tonight. And roadmr, I actually was a Union Electrician Apprentice for 3 years. So I've got moderate experience in electrical work. And bout 3 multimeters round here. What do you suggest? Similar to Geppettvs D'Constanzo 's suggestions?

comment Why Won't my computer turn on?
Yup, thought odd you mention that, cause a few months before this started, I opened it up and cleaned out all the dust. Took the CPU Heat Sink off, clean of every spec of dust, and put new Thermal Paste on it.(good stuff, not cheap) and put it all back together and was working great for a long time. Oh and @JorgeCastro , I'm also pretty sure its a hardware problem. My only delima is finding out what part is going bad. Not an easy thing to find. :(
