Sierra Vista Ubuntu Hour

The inaugural Sierra Vista Ubuntu Hour was held from 1730-1830 on 24 July 2014 at the Sierra Vista Public Library foyer. There were four Arizona Loco team members in attendance, three of which drove from the Phoenix area to ensure the success of this inaugural event. Two people stopped by and expressed an interest in having Ubuntu installed on their computer. I will accomodate them this next week. A good time was had by all present before, during, and after the Ubuntu Hour.

BigBlueButton flash issues

Why can't I accept the Flash Security Dialog on Linux

On some versions of Linux desktop when loading the BigBlueButton client, the user is unable to accept the Flash security dialog asking for permissions to access the computer's microphone and webcam.

The solution is use the Flash security manager to add an exception for the BigBlueButton host. Doing so will no longer have Flash prompt for access to the microphone/webcam.

To add an exception, do the following.

REMOVE OLD KERNELS

I tend to be on #ubuntu to help others. Today, an interesting question
popped up, how do I clean the old linux images and headers?

Each linux image / header has its own dir in /usr/src/

Let's start, uname -a ... do NOT remove this image

Let's do a sudo apt-get update ... make sure it is clean

If, for some reason, you get errors, try sudo apt-get -f install (fix broken)

Let's get a list of all the images, dpkg -l | grep linux-image

Another UEFI Adventure

I recently bought a new used Lenovo V570 laptop and wanted to dual boot it with windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.05. I found the drive had been erased with the exception of a recovery partition, but I was unable to access it.

Step 1:
I tried using the original format which was msdos and installed a fresh Windows 7. Unfortunately that failed. The Windows disk required GPT.
