 Issues accessing Qubes?

If still having issues, email peter@learn2code.nz with:

  • Student name and School where session is attended.
  • Parent contact details.
  • Operating System + version, Make, and Model of the device.
  • The “SHARE YOUR SYSTEM INFO WITH TECH SUPPORT” URL from https://www.whatismybrowser.com/ on the device.
  • A screenshot of the Developer Tools Console, straight after a page reload/refresh:
    1. Open the Developer Tools.  NOTE: If using the keyboard shortcut method, click in the Address Bar then use the shortcut as Qubes blocks those key-presses in the main window  —  https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/console/#open_as_panel
    2. Ensure the ‘Console’ tab is selected.  If the console isn’t docked at the bottom (for the greatest horizontal width) then click the ┇ menu and choose the “Dock to bottom” dock side.
    3. Refresh the browser tab on the https://www.qubes.nz URL to generate a fresh console log.  Wait until the tab has finished loading  —  e.g. http://bit.ly/Qb2018T2DevCon
    4. Take a screenshot, ensuring it shows as much of the end of the console output as possible  —  https://www.popsci.com/take-screenshot-on-any-device
    5. Attach the screenshot to your email.
