General Help & Advice / Re: External monitor for my Asus notebook

Oh they can also send a square one and you cannot choose, just seen in blurb below. What about this one?  It has the VGA cable with it ( which I assume is all I need since plugging it into netbook?)
You do realise that's 4:3 and not 16:9 widescreen ?
General Help & Advice / External monitor for my Asus notebook
« Last Post by Melissa on Yesterday at 04:27:37 pm »
Hey guys I am looking to buy an external large monitor to plug into my Asus notebook that runs on Peppermint 9. I thought it'd be a cheaper option than spending months and months saving up for a bigger laptop and also the screen will be bigger ( I need a large screen to do online tutoring using video conferencing like Skype). The notebook is pretty cool, having a touch screen and has all the cool Linux features ( some which even my Chromebook won't do) so it seems daft to me to buy yet another laptop. I've already got 3! ( An old Dell notebook too running on Mint!). All it needs really is a bigger screen and one day I'll get an SSD drive put into it. A big monitor is the ideal solution.

I've seen this one and would like to buy it but was wondering if you'd mind having a look and letting me know if it'd work on my notebook?

I would be using an external speaker or on headphones.

Here is my Asus notebook:

You're running Ubuntu 10.10 ?

If that's the case you have much bigger security issues than just a firewall .. Ubuntu 10.10 reached end of life YEARS ago so hasn't been recieved any of the patches for recent security vulnerabilities.

You'd be MUCH better served installing something that's still supported, such as maybe Ubuntu MATE 18.04 .. then using gufw as your firewall.

 Hello everyone,,
I'm still apprehensive about security due to Windoze flaws and paranoia.  I have downloaded Firestarter but have to load it every time I start up, is there anyway I can get it to start up automatically or do you have any other suggestions regarding Firewalls?



Finally wiped Vista from my main computer and now using Ubuntu 10.10.    :)

Thanks for your help. The output of

Code: [Select]
sudo mount -a

mount: special device /dev/vg_tempdb/lvo10 does not exist

I checked the file system and /dev/vg_tempdb exists. However vg_tempdb does not contain lvo10. It contains ../dm-1

Does that mean I made a mistake when I created the logical drive with mkfs.xfs? Do I need to remove the logical drive (lvremote?) and do that again?
