Reddit: I'm only posting here because I got downvoted and ignored in the actual help subs, but I'm a newbie in need of help with installation issues.

Monday 11th of July 2016 01:11:25 AM

So I just got an Acer ZC-606 from my granddad who said that I could have it if I could fix it. It originally came with Windows 8.1, but it wasn't booting correctly.

Now, my original plan with this computer was to just install Windows 10 onto it, as the 8.1 it came with wasn't working. So, I made a bootable win10 usb from my other computer (Windows 7 HP Pavillion), and installed Windows 10. I got it all set up and working; I even installed steam, downloaded a couple games, played a couple games for a bit. I then left it on sleep while I went to bed so it could install another game.

When I went to turn it on this morning, it was trying to install from the usb again, as I must've forgotten to remove it after it installed Windows 10. So, when I took it out, I was greeted with "Reboot and select proper boot device, or insert media in selected boot device."

So, I used unetbootin on my other computer to make a usb that I could install Ubuntu from. But the issue is, when I try to install it, I get the following error message on the Live CD:

"You need at least 8.3 GB disk space to install Ununtu.

This computer has only 2.0 GB."

Now, with my limited knowledge, I'm assuming that it's not recognizing the hard drive, and it's trying to install it onto the usb drive instead.

When I start up gparted, this is what I see.

I have no idea what to do from here and Google isn't helping.

Thanks in advance!

Reddit: Is there a native software that will do this?

Sunday 10th of July 2016 11:08:46 PM

Looking for an image viewer that will let me slowly and smoothly zoom and pan an image like in this video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6w2M50_Xdk

Something with the ability to record to video would be all the better.

Also, this is fucking bullshit.

Edit 1.

Found photofilmstrip in the Mint repos. Looks like it might be exactly what I was looking for.
