If you already have the machine, do the install and tell us about your issues. You can also find out others experiences by googling "computer-name linux".

eg.

... this ubuntu howto was the first hit.

From that thread you can refine your questions.

You mean the 7-in-1 SD card reader?

You'll have to install ubuntu for this to be persistent.

There are many options for sharing files between linux laptops.
The easiest to set up would be to use samba.

Ubuntu comes with a folder called "Public".
Right-click on it, then select "share options".
(You may be asked to install the server.)

Share the folder and allow guest logins. Do not allow others to write to it.

Do this for both ubuntu machines.

Reboot both.


When they are up, go to places > network > windows network - to find the other machine's share.
Anything you put in the Public folder will be, um, public.

There are limitations to windows network shares which mean that they may not always be available. Nobodies fault as such, it's just that ptp turns out to be harder than it looks. Some people prefer server-client style, and use NFS or FTP. Some people just email files between computers. For real fun, you can set up your own web server etc. That is a very powerful system you have there, and the general rule is that you can do anything you want - at least, there are no artificial restrictions.

Hi teachers of linux,
