I tried to install Labtix in an external hard disk but I don' t know if it is all right. I do not have an old laptop now to test it on. I have unzipped once ( i would say), but i believe i should do it twice, but what exactly? Can you tell me what to do next by seeing the attached screenshot? Thanks

Hi everyone! My name is Sampson. I am very new here and finding the information here overwhelming. Can someone help me by showing me how to request for a laptop for my pupils at school? I am glad to join this amazing group. Thanks! Sampson.

Good afternoon from Santiago Atitlán. I have been trying to reconfigure my computer language on a Lenovo Thinkpad with an Ubuntu 16.04 system installed. I know that this computer is connected to the internet because I double checked by going on its browser, but whenever I try to change the computer language to Spanish through Language Support, it says that my connection is down. When I...

IBM ThinkPad which has very slow and old Pentium M processor. It also has a WiFi device which is very old (Intel PRO/Wireless 2100) and after Lubuntu 14.04 is installed, WiFi can't be used - only through Ethernet cable to connect to internet. There are many postings online about this, but no clear solution. There was this page https://wiki.debian.org/ipw2200 but I couldn’t download the firmware...

I followed the instructions at https://www.labdoo.org/content/advanced-method-without-network to prepare some USB sticks for the purpose of sanitizing Dootronics. After downloading the two files "parted_magic_clonezilla_2012_10.iso" and "parted_magic_clonezilla_2013_08.iso" I "burned" the images (successful) to the sticks with two different programs: "Disks" and "Startup Disk Creator". All 4...

Hello, I have been reviewing the material you facilitate and I find very helpful for example the "Dootrip Brochure" for example at the time ato create some publicity that could provide some dootravleres in our Hubs. [https://www.labdoo.org/content/dootrip-brochure] There is one thing though that I would suggest to change and it is that on it, it is requested to reach out for the...

My nephew Bernat has been helping me this afternoon repairing one laptop ... so this is really his idea. He asked if we knew about Chalet OS, a new linux distribution related to Google, with an Interface that emulates Windows. I don't enven have an opinion on wheather this is a good thing or not. Have you heard about it? What do you think about it? Thanks
