Hi gang!,

Could someone help point Alan in the right direction?

I believe he needs to setup a Samba share to his windows PeeCee.
I also believe he has lost his Mozilla Firefox browser! (Which way did it go?)

        Thanks for writing!!  I'm OK with Windows (boooo!!!!), but with linux I'm a newbie. 

        The mailing list is here at http://coloco.ubuntu-rocks.org/, right?  So this is a dousie because I need Firefox Mozilla up & running to save my //home/Alan folder??  Hmm.  

        So when you say "Try "mozilla-firefox" in a shell", do you mean I go the terminal?  And then type in "mozilla-firefox"?  Not sure what it means "in a shell" & how to put it in a shell. 

        Yea for linux people!

          This mailing list will reach everyone on the Colorado team (and is meant as a support outreach among other things).

          As far as your problem goes... it sounds like a dousie!
          I'd reach out to the mailing list, they will have more concise up-to-date information to help you quicker.

          However, have you tried running mozilla from the command line?
          Try "mozilla-firefox" in a shell.

                  Hi Mitch!

                  Glad to hear from you.  Yes, I still need help & for so long now too. 
                  I'm simply needing to back up my Ubuntu notebook computer of what I put on it in my //home folder.  That would be bookmarks, songs, (& hopefully pixs).  Maybe it makes no difference but my Firefox browser disappeared & I can't add it or ANYTHING because when I try, it says "CAN NOT FETCH'.  

                  Any suggestions?
                  I'd be most grateful for any suggestions.  Thanks,

                  PS - I'm not sure about any mailing list, or where it is.

                    Hey there... I'm actually living on the east coast now (so you sent this a little late).

                    Do you still need some help?

                    Perhaps trying the mailing list will get you better results (they slave me pretty good at my new job).

                            Hi Mitch,

                            I'm Alan Gerbracht from Boulder & could use some assistance with my Ubuntu computer.  I believe we met at the brewery in FlatIrons Mall last spring.  If you could call me I would be most happy to hear from you.  I don't have much luck with the forum to resolve this straighford (& easy?) question.

                            Ph. # 720-579-2976
