Linux: Ubuntu

Post by Phil Scape on June 27th 2010, 5:21 am

Anyone use it?

I just got it, but I cannot get the internet configured on it correctly. How do you scan for wireless networks like you can on Windows? I like it so far, just would help if I had the internet.


This is not a support topic either.

Hello.

A discussion topic about Ubuntu already exists, here's the link : http://help.forumotion.com/general-discussions-f7/linux-ubuntu-t50802.htm

Regerding your problem, I know that wireless modems might still cause trouble, especially if you have a funky model, but have you looked at Ubuntu's documentation and asked on ubuntu's support forum ? This is the best place where you can get support.

Official documentation : https://help.ubuntu.com/
Official community : http://ubuntuforums.org/

And to answer your first question, yes I use Ubuntu for two years already. I started with Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, then I leapt to Ubuntu 9.04 one year ago after the system partition's filesystem crashed (even a checkdisk wasn't enough, I couldn't open a graphic session), so I had to reinstall it. Right now, I haven't upgraded to 10.04 LTS yet, but as soon as I finish a style request I currently have, I'll upgrade.
On my side, all my hardware, including my Ethernet, is recognized out of the box (I have a 2.8GHz Pentium 4 CPU with 1GB RAM), and while my radeon VGA didn't support 3D at all when I was on 8.04 LTS, it now supports 3D since 9.04, by the fact that AMD finally released its ATI hardware specifications and so, this helped the developers to improve the ATI free drivers.

As Cornelia has already stated, since we have a topic open already about this posted above, I will lock this topic now. Please feel free to contribute to the open discussion topic as I'm sure you will find it very informative, as well as Cornelia's advice. Wink
