ABSDoug has migrated from the Ubuntu groups to Debian.
If he follows the same course on here then expect endless questions and very little attempt to help himself.
Most Linux users make some attempt to search for information about any problems they experience.
Others just throw out a stream of questions without any noticeable attempt to find information first.
Expecting everyone to sort out something you can't be bothered to do for yourself is not the Linux way.
