Re: Thunderbird and Links

Not sure whether this points to 4.12 being at fault but I have loaded an old xfce 4.10 and the link opening between my email and Firefox works as required, also tried Iceweasel and that also opens the links correctly. All settings are the same on both systems so it looks like I'll be leaving 4.12 as...

Re: Boot error in Vbox

on grub interface press 'e' go to 'quiet splash' then add 'forcefsck' next to it. in that way you can add it on boot parameter without messing with grub conf file. if you want to permanently add a certain boot parameter, edit /etc/default/grub then add it next to 'quiet splash'. after that do 'sudo...

Re: Boot error in Vbox

add 'forcefsck' in the boot parameter. else, you can do it from a livecd. Thanks for the prompt response - adding to the boot parameter seems to be the easiest way for me but for an idiot oldie where would I add this parameter in the Grub 2 menu at the system start up, presuming of course that this...

Re: Virtual Box anomaly

I think my initial problem was that I have just started using VBox and just downloaded from the Oracle site which was of course the latest version which I then installed on my Win7 machine which is my Host.

Re: Virtual Box anomaly

I realise this situation but the reality is that the version of the installed Virtual Box was 4.3.26 whereas the Guest Additions was 4.3.18 thereby causing the original problem, so I'm caught between a rock and a hard place, either continue with an out of sequence VB and Guest Additions install or t...

Re: Virtual Box anomaly

Well I think I resolved the problem, I uninstalled the old versions using Synaptic PM (4.3.18) and after reboot the Guest Additions were absent, I then reinstalled the latest version (4.3.26), rebooted, the error message was gone and my system was running a lot better, hopefully it will stay that wa...

Re: Virtual Box anomaly

The first apt policy command won't return anything useful because your VirtualBox is running on a Windows host. What is the version number there? Grizzler Checking the version number from the About Virtual Box on the main VB screen shows: 4.3.26 r98988 which I guess is at variance with the one quot...
