Flash Player

I’m using Ubuntu 14.04 and getting Adobe Flash is not the same as before
Before, I can just install Adobe Flash from the Ubuntu Software Centre but now, it doesn’t work that way. I’m using Chromium web browser

It’s pretty simple, just click on the error shown in the browser (no flash installed type of message)
It should direct to this website Getting Flash
The steps are straight forward

1. Start Ubuntu Software Center, search for pepperflashplugin-nonfree, install
2. Open Terminal (ctrl t)
3. Paste:
sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install
4. Restart the browser and it should work

Kodak ESP3.2

Being a Windows user for as long as I remember, I had a hard time trying to install the printer driver on my laptop! I recently removed Windows and run totally in Ubuntu
and from what I read, Kodak is so not Linux friendly!

after a bit of googling, I found the solution! woot!

1. Download the printer driver printer driver.deb


1. Download at cup driver
2. Follow the instruction in INSTALL file;
sudo apt-get build-essential cups libcups2-dev libcupsimage2-dev libcupsdriver1-dev
3. Go to the folder, adila@adila:~/Desktop/c2esp-27$
4. Do:
sudo make install
5. Installing done! Now create the printer
search printer or how ever else you do menu: System/Administration/Printing
6. Add printer. Make sure your printer in switched on. It should detect it. Choose the PPD of the printer model and it should be straight forward. (It should detect the address and port number which I didn’t change)

If there’s any error or whatnot, make sure step 2 is done correctly. It might missed one of those.

Installing Ubuntu

4 options; burn into a CD/DVD, create a bootable USB, use Virtual CloneDrive (or anything similar) or use wubi

I tried all, and I ended up burn it into a DVD (well, I accidentally deleted my Windows, so burn into DVD is the safest choice)

When I try to install, I got this error, “Grub failed to install…”

Insert the CD, click on “Try Ubuntu”
Open the Terminal (ctrl-alt-t) and type:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo sed 's/trusty/saucy/g' -i /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yannubuntu-boot-repair-trusty.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && (boot-repair &)

Click “Recommended repair” and follow the instructions
and one of the step is to write in the terminal,
apt-get install -y --force-yes grub-pc linux
get rid of linux at the end, so it should just be
apt-get install -y --force-yes grub-pc

I did get the error towards the end, “GRUB failed to install to the following devices”
which I simply ignored and proceed towards the end

and it works just fine despite the error message
