If Kubuntu ran on his machine this thread probably would not have occurred.
The part I think you may have missed above was the line
"For some reason there is a huge issue with Kubuntu and his hardware that I have given up trying to fix, so I have installed Debian"
We ended up settling on Mandriva, my son is able to keep it up to date and install software through easy gui tools. It installed easily, everything worked and with the PLF repo's we have everything we could want software wise. I have found urmpi to be a capable alternative to apt. I'm so impressed actually, I am considering making the move on my workstation.

This is the thing. Surely all a gmail users correspondents
can vouch for the user. This should be enough for them.
Particularly gmail correspondents who have archived mail.
That can't be faked. Or would be very hard to fake.
Matt, who knows someone similarly affected.
