    Few Random Questions

    As I'm getting settled into my UCE machine, I have a few random questions:

    1. Do I need to install a dedicated FTP client on my system or can I connect to my FTP server directly from the file manager?

    2. How do I go about installing custom alert sounds? I have an alert sound from my other machine I want to move over.

    3. Is there a way to remove the Wacom Tablet app?

    4. Is there an extension or something I can tweak in LibreOffice so that the menus appear in the menubar?

    Thanks!

    That depends upon which file manager you are using. Some of them include FTP functionality, and some don't. For various reasons, I prefer using stand alone ftp-clients.

    2. How do I go about installing custom alert sounds? I have an alert sound from my other machine I want to move over.
    When do you want those alert sounds to play?

    3. Is there a way to remove the Wacom Tablet app?

    How did you install LibreOffice?
    • If you used Synaptic, then the menus should have been automatically included;
    • If you installed the version from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/, then you need to go into the desktop-integration subfolder of the unzipped file, and run "sudo dpkg -i *.deb";

    It would be useful if you said what version/distro of Linux you are using. Also, what is UCE? Wikipedia show numerous possibilities.

    I use gftp.

    That information was provided by the OP.

    Also, what is UCE?
    If you read the name of this part of the Ubuntu web forum, you would also have the answer to that question.
