General Discussion / Transmission download
« on: August 06, 2019, 10:51:09 am »
Hi, can anyone help me to download Transmission.  This is for my second laptop on which I use Zorin. I copied a video from youtube and got:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmission/ppa
[sudo] password for joe:
Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:~transmission/ubuntu/ppa'.
The user named '~transmission' does not have any PPA

Please note I tried in the terminal because I cannot download it through my desktop because it insists I register an account with Ubuntu and every time I try to, it won't let me. Thanks.

Netbooks / Recommend laptop for Linux
« on: July 27, 2019, 02:23:43 pm »
Hi all.  Just thought I would try to cut to the chase and ask for any recommendations for a laptop 15 inch to dual boot W10 and Linux.  Have been researching it now for a few weeks without a positive result.  Want something for around £800 that I can install Linux on without too much difficulty and run it for years to come.  Any answers will be much appreciated.

Netbooks / Acer laptop for Linux dual boot
« on: July 24, 2019, 11:10:35 am »
Hello to all.  Just joined,from Liverpool, a newbie and hopefully not too much of a burden.
Can anyone give me advice on whether the Acer Asire 7 i5 with GTX1050 is a good laptop to buy.  I intend to keep W10 and dual boot with Linux.  I will probably install Mint and try different distros in Virtual box.
Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
