    Welcome JudyA!
  3. Hmm, I must have lost my login above somewhere if the shuffle of the multiple computers I am on in a day. @Broni, you can delete that one if you want, the xrobwx71. I'll continue with this one.

    I second what Shay said and would add: In an office environment like mine at the store, would be considered commercial. For instance, I have a Point of Sale Server running Windows Server 2008 R2 and Teamviewer free will not work at all on that system. (I use paid CAL RDP licenses for that) But the other systems, with Win 8.1 and 10 on them I use the free version of TV to log on from home or my laptop to run updates/fixes. I logon to my Office computer then RDP into the Server. The least expensive TV is $849 for a single user license. *A single-user license permits connections from up to 3 devices (e.g. computers or mobile devices). A multi-user (floating) license enables a pool of users to work with TeamViewer on any number of devices independent of location. https://www.teamviewer.com/en/pricing/commercial-use/
  6. EUFI Boot Problems Ubuntu

    I tried to live boot antix and I get a black screen. Do I need to add the nomodset to the boot until I can install the Nvidia driver? Does Antix even work like that? I had to do that on the laptop with Ubuntu and Kali.

  10. Hello all!

    My name is Rob, I am from Panama City Beach, Florida USA. I have lived in Panama City Beach since 1987 or so before that I was born and raised in Oxford, Alabama. I came here, to Smartest Computing by way of bleepingcomputer.com.Seeing Broni's intriguing expertise and clicking on his link to here. What I see here I like, so I signed up. I love my Family. My hobbies include: Home Improvement, Computers (building and fixing) Guns (no hunting, just self defense training and target) Science all kinds except political, Reading. I am happily married 8 years with a 5 year old daughter. I also have a 21 year old daughter and a 23 year old son from a previous marriage. I am a co-owner of an independently owned architectural paint store. We sell Benjamin Moore paints. (If you want your house/building painted, or if you are a paint contractor, you come to me to buy the paint) my duties there include: Management, I.T., credit manager, plumber, electrician, janitor, officer manager, etc, etc. :) I hope to add to the atmosphere here at Smartest computing in a positive way. I like to help people and if it's in the realm of my knowledge, I'll lend a hand.

  12. EUFI Boot Problems Ubuntu

    I had to disable secure boot on the laptop. It ran 16.04 fine for a few months but when I tried to upgrade to 17.04 it just stops at the password field with no other option but to hold power button down to shutdown. It seems the wireless no longer works. I can choose Advanced options > Ubuntu recovery > Then I get the options to Regular start, dpkg fix, update grub, etc. I usually update grub to mount the file system, then drop to root shell to execute commands. When I sudo apt-get install update, it goes through the motions but says failed at every http: address involved in "getting" files from the internet. I will say, I do not have any files I'd have to keep. those are all on the Windows partitions with 3 deep backups. 3 deep meaning, #1 backup on internal seperate HDD, #2 backup on internal seperate HDD, #3 backup to NAS in RAID 0. I just installed Ubuntu to learn Linux and do not have anything special I need to save. I do however want to be careful of the Windows partition. Thanks!

    For future reference: Get to a command prompt and type shutdown.exe /r /o hit enter. You'll see: Wait about 15 seconds, it will reboot,then you'll have the boot options. Then after it boots: then: Source
  15. Ok, I've got Ubuntu dual booting with Windows 10 on 3 machines. My Office computer at work (UEFI) No problems at all. My home computer, non EUFI, no problems. My laptop, EUFI, is the one I'm having issues with.. I have upgraded all 3 to 16.10 from 16.04 and only the laptop will not boot: Secure boot and fast boot are disabled. I restart, Grub comes up and if I let it boot, it gets to the Ubuntu 16.10 desktop with password field and cursor blinking, then a dialogue in the top right corner pops up stating, "Wireless connections available" once that dialogue goes away it hangs, no mouse no keyboard, nothing moves, cursor no longer blinks in password field. The only option is to hold the power button until it turns off. Windows boots fine from Grub, I can also drop down to Advance settings for Ubuntu and choose it, then I get the list of choices: umm, I can't remember them all but one is drop to root shell in which I have tried various commands to which none have worked. I can also hit "e" to edit grub. Any ideas?
