HP-2133: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Upgrade Failed; Xubuntu 18.04 Clean Install Succeeded

Updated 06-14-2021 at 09:15 PM by flshope (correct typos)

I have a 2008 HP-2133 laptop machine running 32-bit Ubuntu 16.04. The machine has been running satisfactorily for several years, the only chronic glitch being a loss of speaker sound sometime after the 16.04 installation. Also, Unity no longer ran and I have been running Xfce. I have delayed upgrading to 18.04 because I have always had difficulties with OS upgrades as support for my hardware dwindled. Of course, 16.04 reached end of life in April 2021, meaning no further support for that version....

Using an HP-2133 with an external display under Ubuntu 14.04

This little note will be of interest to anyone (1) running an HP-2133 Mini-note PC (a little laptop), (2) with Ubuntu 14.04 and (3) Gnome Flashback, and (4) who wants to use it with an external Dell UltraSharp display. There must be maybe three such individuals (counting me) between earth and the Andromeda galaxy -- I include the end-points of the interval.

The 2133 has a nine-inch diagonal (viewable) screen. Although the display is crisp and readable, I am no longer pushing 70 (I'm...

HP-2133 Upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 -- an important prerequisite

Posted 11-22-2014 at 08:30 PM by flshope

The HP-2133 Mini-note PC is a laptop computer with a 9-in. viewable diagonal screen. It has a single-core 1.2 MHz processor with 2 GB RAM and a 120 GB disk. The machine came with SUSE Enterprise Desktop 10 installed, a poor choice because none of the peripherals worked. Prior to the present upgrade, the machine was running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with the Unity desktop.

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...
