Having followed the tutorial at http://www.howtoforge.com/running-ub...ortable-ubuntu
I wanted to instal portable ubuntu to the Desktop of my Win XP.
However, when I opened the file run_portable_ubuntu.bat as instructed, the green arrow appeared at the sys tray for an instant and then it disappeared very quickly. What's more, I can't see the Ubuntu taskbar which should have appeared at the top of my desktop.
After I ran the file for the second time, I clicked the green arrow before it desappeared again, but it didn't help.
As for firewalls, I use Spybot, whose resident protection mode I have disabled before the instalation. I downloaded the instalation file from sourceforge.net to D:\.
Thank you very much for your help.
