I'm now having problems, I can't get the shares working at all now.
I know I've gone a little overkill with the samba programs I've installed, so could you advise me on what I really need,instead of having all four programs.

General Help & Advice / Re: Second monitor greyed out!
« on: June 17, 2017, 10:28:25 pm »
It's sorted!

I connected my laptop to the TV via the HDMI cable which was connected to the desktop PC in the bedroom and it worked, there was a signal going through to the TV, so the problem was not the HDMI cable.

I then connected it all back up to the desktop PC in the bedroom and had another look at the monitor settings.
something made me click in te tick box of the TV in the front room and it activated (it was already 'ticked') which was the strange thing.

everything is now working.

The cable is 10m and going up into the attic then across to the bedroom then into the bedroom.
I will be testing it with my laptop, I will be connecting the HDMI to the laptop from the bedroom end to see if it's a problem with the cable ot the desktop PC.

I'm trying to view shares from the PC in the bedroom to the laptop in the front room.
Samba is set up OK. I am able to view shares on the laptop. only after I open Gadmin Samba and enter the password.

Is there a way to have samba automatically allow sharing without me entering the password.

General Help & Advice / Trouble with samba shares at bootup
« on: June 15, 2017, 07:30:44 pm »
I've got Gadmin Samba, Samba Status Moitor, Samba & Windows Shares all installed as I didn't know what each of them are specifically designed to do.

The main problem I'm having is that the shares ares available at bootup, I have to mess around entering passwords in the aforementioned programs to get the shares working.

Can anyone help me try and get the shares working at bootup, I've even tried setting them to run at boot but that still didn't work.

General Help & Advice / [SOLVED] Second monitor greyed out!
« on: June 03, 2017, 11:34:59 am »
I have just tried using a second monitor, which has been connected for almost a year.
I last used it less than a week ago.
My main PC is in our bedroom and the 'other' monitor is the TV in the living room.
when I go into 'settings' / 'display & monitor' I see both monitors but the secondary one is 'greyed out'

What I think is strange  is that when I reboot, the second monitor springs into life, showing the 'kubuntu' name
Then on boot-up, nothing.

I've checked the connections and there's nothing wrong with them, otherwise there would be no 'screen' in the settings display.

General Help & Advice / Unable to upload to Facebook with Digikam
« on: May 30, 2017, 12:10:30 am »
I have discovered there's a problem trying to link Digikam to my facebook account.
I found THIS, which explains the problem and the solution but it's a few years old and knowing facebook, it no longer works.
Has anyone else had or got the same problem and figured a solution?

General Help & Advice / Need to shutdown program before reboot
« on: May 25, 2017, 01:47:48 am »
I need to somehow have Thunderbird shutdown automatically before reboot as every time I reboot I get a warning that Thunderbird is already running.
The only option I have ATM is physically shutting it down every time I need to reboot.

General Help & Advice / Re: Kubuntu 16.04 failing to boot
« on: May 21, 2017, 07:02:33 pm »
While I was reinstalling the Multi-boot USB I left the laptop. When I got back, the laptop had booted ok
I had recently added a ton of fonts so I removed them and rebooted, this must have helped as it booted fine.
I don't know yet why booting with the USB created such a problem.
I'll look into it further when I can.
