I have the USB flashdrive I used to install which I think I can run as an OS. Is that what you mean.

Yeah that's what I mean, if it continues to crash running the live USB then it's most likely a hardware issue, like many things it's a process of elimination, figuring out if the problem is hardware or software would be a good place to start.

Try to figure out if the crash occurs under any particular conditions or while running any particular software or process, if you can nail it down to a single application try running that application from the terminal the read the terminal output for clues.

At this point it's kinda difficult to offer anything more constructive


Good luck

Hi RATTLEBACK

If the crashing is random then it could be a difficult one to nail down, the problem sounds like it could be hardware rather than a software issue.

It might be worth trying running a live disc for a while to see if the problem persists, if it does then it could be overheating or maybe a faulty memory stick or some other physical issue.

Do you have a live disc you can try ?

Hi Matilda
Can you confirm you have the file I sent you in ~/Downloads ?

When you're ready Matilda, place the file I sent you in your ~/Downloads folder then post here when it's done and we'll take it from there

I suspect it's showing up because it's there, even though it's deactivated, I don't see what harm it's doing,

If it's an ethernet card you're using you could physically remove it or if it's integrated  you may be able to turn it off in the BIOS if it's troubling you.

Out of curiosity why is an ethernet connection impossible ?

Hi Melissa

I had the same scanner Melissa with the same issue,

Your scanner needs a firmware file, placed in /usr/share/sane/gt68xx/, I have this file if you private message me your email address I'll send it to you and then help you place it in the right path, if you're not comfortable giving me your email address we'll find another way to pass the file on to you

Hi Steve

Have you had a look at your cpuifo file, I've no reason to doubt your machine is 64bit but if so then I can't understand why it will install a 32bit system and not a 64bit system

So if you haven't already done so in the terminal type the following

Code: [Select]
/proc/cpuinfo

and in the flags section check "lm" is listed

Good luck

Hi Matt

If the idea is to help you're friend with any issues wouldn't a remote desktop client such as Teamviewer or Anydesk be more appropriate. I use Anydesk to connect between my home and work PC's and friends computers running Linux, it's very simple to set up and use, it's fast and very stable

Just out of curiosity I created a folder and named it "Untitled Folder" and put it /home/Documents  then in the terminal typed cd "~/Documents/Untitled Folder "

[email protected] ~ $ cd "~/Documents/Untitled Folder"
bash: cd: ~/Documents/Untitled Folder: No such file or directory


then typed

cd ~/Documents/Untitled Folder
[email protected] ~ $ cd  ~/Documents/Untitled Folder
bash: cd: too many arguments

Then typed cd ~/Documents/Untitled\ Folder

[email protected] ~ $ cd  ~/Documents/Untitled\ Folder
[email protected] ~/Documents/Untitled Folder $

I'm not saying you're wrong Keith but it doesn't seem to be working the way I'm doing it do you see anything I'm doing wrong ?
