Please be kind, I've had next to no experience loading linux on laptops
and have Googled away but to no avail.

I loaded Kubuntu onto an old Acer Travelmate 230 (think it's an '03
model) via the Alternate CD because the live CD wouldn't load x
properly. When I try to boot up I get the screen flashing a few times
and then just goes to a blank screen (which I kinda expected). I can
Ctrl+Alt+F2 to the shell and login that way BUT I can only see the top
left hand 1/4 of the screen. The resolution looks to be okay but the
bottom half and right half of the screen isn't displaying anything which
means any commands I run I can't see the output (it's hidden in the
blank part of the screen).

I tried finding out about the video card with lspci but I can't see any
of the result. I'm stumped as to what to do but I'd really like to get
Kubuntu working on this lappy!

You probably should ask these questions on the amarok forum.

FWIW:

1. There is no mention of anything like this on the amarok man page,
although I'm not at all clear on what you mean by "configuration".

2. I think that the answer is "not without some tricky database
programming". (Basically because amarok regards a track as being different
if it's on different devices.)

which amarok forum?

Oh, what I would like to do is start amarok when I am away with a
different db. this would get me around the worst part of the problem(the
"full"database being overwritten with the info from the sd card when I
listen away from home), but would also let me potentially merge the two
databases and keep a track of all of my listening history.

thanks again

I have Three computers on my LAN. The one I'm on right now is my test

Home Phone Network Adapter that plugs to the computer in the USB ports.

Unit number 1 is a problem. It is presently on a dual boot system

2Wire via the only Usb port on the 1000SW 2Wire modem/ router. If I
boot the unit #1in Windows XP all three computers connect to the

boot unit #1 in Kubuntu, it will not communicate with any other device.

I went first to the Ubuntu list and everyone centered on the device
not being suitable for the task I wish to accomplish but ith the
system working perfectly with computer #1 booted in Windows I just
fail to see that as a valid statement. And when I was asked to post
the lsusb results everyone just fell silent. Please help, I do not
want to operate Windows any more


Ubuntu is only going to connect to the 2wire with a cat5-6/RJ45
ethernet cable, if your trying to connect ubuntu with usb,
It won't work.
Am I understanding that your trying to connect Ubuntu through a USB ?
If your dual booting XP/Ubuntu , use the ethernet cat 5 cable off of the
2Wire for both operating systems, it will work.

Hi Mal,
If you want to see the output from the lspci command, you could redirect
the output to a file (using "lspci > temp").Then view the file using
less ("less temp"). This way you should be able to scroll through the
lspci output.

Cheers,
Ranmadhu

Excuse me, I just don't see the point in resending those mails here,
could you please explain.

Greetings Perry

P.S. your mail took 3 or 4 days to be delivered in my mailbox, I only got it
today.

If you look closely, the last line said "Thank you very much". So the
OP quoted back the whole digest, to say "Thank you". Probably just a
slip of the fingers.

Now, now. Just because the OP was rude, doesn't mean we need to do the
same. :-)

(see, I'm practicing being more reasonable, rather than just dismissing
the OP as "IDIOT!", which is what I used to do, if off-list)
