Ubuntu 12.04.3 Behaving Badly

Postby Jimmers » Wed Apr 02, 2014 6:02 pm


Having just have to purchase a new Laptop, because of the expiry of trusted one, I removed Windows 8 and installed Ubuntu 12.04.3

It will mount CD/DVD, USB drives but will not run them, it will not run Kaffeine or VLC which it used to do in the past.
I have been using 12.04. since first release.
family are running 12.04 without a problem, why Me.

All help and Sugesstions Greatly Apreciated

It could be an issue with group membership. I'd start by checking your in group cdrom.

So it looks like I'm back to LinuxMint again. Why you ask? Because my machine smell nicer.

I'm not too sure I'd want a Mint and Cinnamon muffin with my brew though. Guess I'm lucky they don't run my local bakery.
