    Hi! I’m new to Linux and having problems with PCLinux on a new 64 bit lap top that originally came with Win 8. I changed the hard drive out with a new blank on Black Friday and loaded up Ubuntu 14.04 from a friend. Seemed to work better but didn’t have certain things, particularly Skype. So I switched Op systems and it’s only just usable. Would like to go back to Ubuntu, thinking this time 14.10 and definitely a 64 bit rather than what turned out to be a 32 in the 14.04. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Internet unreliable at home and on this computer/O.S. – only have library computers access as alternate and need a “good” 14.10 disc. I’m in Bankview/South Calgary and have lots of coffee and can even find some beer. Cheers! “”

    Hi SouthernGent,

    You came to the correct place for help. Depending on your plans and how long you are willing to wait, you could A or B
    Install Solydxk and everything should just work. Yes in cluding Skype. I have a usb drive with the latest SolydK or X on it_(Dec 6/14).
    Wait untill the new 3.19 kernel comes and then install from USB drive
    (I am hoping that will solve a lot of problems because of the modern -kernel and distribution-)
    We would like to help.

    Library sounds like an issue getting on a computer? clug-talk mail list is usual way we talk. Tier two membership is free, just for joining the list.
    If you want to meet some other way, let me know.

    Our meeting is coming up Wed Feb 4, 2015 7:00 pm at U of C Downtown campus 8 & 8th SW
