I'm new to this Vector Linux - its kinda nice and fast, good looking and is sitting on my laptop smiling away ... but... I'm having a few issues with it.
1. I have a removable hard drive with ALL my music, files etc etc on. When I plug it in I can view the items but I cant copy and paste anything. Permissions?? The Drive is NTFS. All my email, bookmarks and documents are backed up onto it so I really could do with solving this. The option of reformatting this drive to EX2 etc is a none issue as I have both Windows (for Music Production) and Linux (for internet etc) and I need both machines to be able to access this drive.
2. My mouse, which is a humble 2 button scroll thingy has worked with every computer Ive ever plugged it into. However with Vector Linux the wheel doesn't work, neither does the scroll on the track -pad on the laptop itself. Is this fixable? (I've set it to the correct mode in the setting but it's not having it).
When I'm out and about I use a 3 usb dongle for my internet - a E 169G modem. I havent attempted to try and get this working yet - my last foray into Linux (ubuntu studio) was a disaster as i couldn't get the modem working and it was my only connection at the time
. Is this able to work with VL?
