    Dell Inspiron-3268 - Teething Problems with Ubuntu 18.04

    The Dell still wants a password for almost everything I try to do, so that alone is reason enough to consider reinstalling the OS on the Dell.

    Dell Inspiron-3268 - Teething Problems with Ubuntu 18.04

    I do have the Startup Disk Creator installed on the Dell. However, if I want to burn an ISO to the micro USB (which was recognized as available) a user password is still required. This takes me back to the mail problem with the Dell; resetting the passwords and regaining ownership of the hard...

    Dell Inspiron-3268 - Teething Problems with Ubuntu 18.04

    The USB card reader is needed to make a bootable version of the Manjaro ISO that would be used to regain use of the Pinebook Pro laptop. I was able to use 'copy and paste' to move that file to the micro USB card that would be used to boot the laptop. Without being able to burn the ISO to the...

    Dell Inspiron-3268 - Teething Problems with Ubuntu 18.04

    Just a thought, here is the final few lines of the same dmesg but WITH the micro USB card in the reader. I have save two full copies of the command, one with the micro USB card and the other without, in the reader. I could forward them to you for evaluation if you want. They are somewhat...

    Dell Inspiron-3268 - Teething Problems with Ubuntu 18.04

    That was the answer to your second question. To answer the first question, the Dell computer has USB ports on both the front and back of the case (or cabinet) and all of those ports do work. There is one SD card reader on the front of the case and that is what I am not able to find. If that...

    Dell Inspiron-3268 - Teething Problems with Ubuntu 18.04

    You asked for 15-20 lines from the end of the dmesg report. Here are the last 25 lines of that report: [ 56.175148] audit: type=1400 audit(1593355529.130:83): apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" profile="system_tor" name="/etc/ssl/openssl.cnf" pid=1220 comm="tor" requested_mask="r"...

    Introduction to Linux

    Wizard, That sounds good. Being new it is often hard to know both how and where to start. Yes, there are two different computers and each has somewhat unique problems. However, the problems I am having with the Dell computer should be resolved before starting on the problem(s) with the PBP...

    Dell Inspiron-3268 - Teething Problems with Ubuntu 18.04

    Probably 'just another noob' question or problem, but I am at a point where I almost desperately need some guidance and assistance. My main computer (the one I am writing this on) is a Dell Inspiron-3268 that until about 18 months ago had Windows 10 as the operating system. One of Microsoft's...
