  1. My sister has a problem with her Ubuntu installation, I recommended Ubuntu forums
  2. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=253801
  3. The answer isn’t really helpful
  4. Eventually I fix it myself. Problem was something muted one of the ALSA channels. Alsamixer to the rescue.

  6. You have entered an invalid username or password.

If you like this, you might like the stateless Web kiosk software I develop. Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
