Installation problem with Opera on HP-2133 running Ubuntu 12.04

Posted 05-25-2013 at 12:04 AM by flshope

I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my HP 2133 Mini-note PC, a small laptop. Gradually I have been installing the applications software that I use on my desktops. Today, I installed the Opera browser, but with considerable difficulty. As of this date, the current stable version of Opera is 12.15. Opera is not an application that Ubuntu offers from its repository; so installation is not just a matter of running the Software Center (SC) and clicking on an install button, since Opera does not appear...

Computers do not produce high-fidelity music, do they?

Posted 04-25-2013 at 10:27 PM by flshope

Since my early 20s (40 years ago), I have been interested in high-fidelity equipment for music reproduction. To me, "high-fidelity equipment" means powerful amplifiers (100s of watts rms per channel), heavy big-box wooden speakers (several cubic feet each) capable of reproducing 30 hz to around 20 Khz with a flat frequency response and a bunch of other acoustic characteristics, and high quality devices to play music media. I am not into high-end equipment, where each component costs O($10^5)...

HP 2133 Mini-note PC crunching along just fine with Ubuntu

Posted 03-29-2013 at 05:42 PM by flshope

After about a month since I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (overwriting SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10) on my HP 2133 Mini-note PC, I can report that the machine has not crashed once with Ubuntu. Under SUSE, it crashed several times during on a session. If you have one of these machines with SUSE (a vendor installation) and yours crashes repeatedly, I recommend you consider installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. The process is a standard installation from an external DVD drive (I have an LG GP40, which is plug...

Installation of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an HP 2133 Mini-note PC

Posted 02-28-2013 at 08:43 PM by flshope

I have a little laptop computer, an HP 2133 Mini-note PC, that originally had SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (Novell) as installed by the manufacturer in 2008. I was never very happy with the machine for several reasons. It was unstable and crashed frequently, but I could never determine if it had a hardware or software problem. A lot of stuff didn't work at all: an outboard modem, sound, camera, auto software updates, to name a few. If HP or Novell offered OS updates, I could never find them....

Definition of Insanity

Posted 02-20-2013 at 06:09 PM by flshope

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, what do you call doing the same thing over and over and GETTING a different result? A computer operating system! Linux, Windows, ..., whatever.
