I've had this unbuntu for over a year, and have never been able to
get ANY of the drives to work. ie; the DVD-r, CD-r, or USB. I've
installed all the 'restricted' extras it said it needed. if I open
places,then computer, their icons show. but, as soon as I put in a
disk or USB device--- their icon disappears, then nothing?? everything
did work fine when I had WinXP installed. I've just been using unbuntu
for the internet and I'm happy its working great. but, I really wish
I could use all the other neat stuff. I really miss using my drives,
and having fun with all the other stuff unbuntu offers.
please, someone help,
I tried it with and without a space, so that can't be it. also,I tried other combos!
I don't know what iceweasel is.
If that did not work then you have more issues with your machine than USB ports. tail (as far as I know) is a basic utility that comes with most (if not all) modern linux systems, definitely with Ubuntu.
sudo which tail
I do not use Ubuntu, but maybe someone who is more versed in sudo can jump in. As far as I know this should definitely work.
