  2. [xubuntu] Re: Xubuntu blew up, need guidance. Permissions issue?

    Maybe high time to save important data/files, then get latest LTS 18.04, create a bootable usb flash-stick and do a clean install. That would be the simpler and faster route (typically).

  7. Re: Why does Ubuntu have so much trouble upgrading smoothly?

    Comparing "home" or consumer users with "Corporate" or company users is faulty. For example, how many home users have the policies & practices corporations do such as ITL's (Integration Test Labs),...

  10. Re: Gnome 3 Vs Ubuntu Mate on HP Compaq 6000 Pro Microtower

    As info, like the storied "Phoenix" of legend . . . . Mepis still lives . . . . in the form of MX Linux. Is #2 on the Distrowatch "hit parade". (See Distrowatch link at bottom of this message)

    pebkac . . . I "assume" that you are aware these 5 machines running Vista will not run the familiar Windows programs in Linux. For example, if running MS-Office, now will run LibreOffice or similar...
  14. Re: Help for newbie with some basic questions about Ubuntu

    It is always a good idea for new users to go to youtube and watch a few tutorials and reviews of Linux distros and ubuntu. There are perhaps 50 or 60 good video channels about different aspect of...

    Recommend you try "Etcher" to create the boot-able usb stick. It is the default goto app for folks needing a simple and fast way to make these bootable flash-stick drives. Works on OS X, WIndows...
  16. Re: When will Linux on the Desktop go mainstream?

    "People" . . . just often don't know what they're talking about. If you define "Mainstream" as only applying to the desktop or laptop, then Linux/Ubuntu etc. will usually top out at about 3 or 4...
  17. [ubuntu_budgie] Re: [ubuntu][budgie] bug probably... authenticate failure updates on wake

    Why would anyone put the system into suspend during the midst of doing an install or system update? 95% of updates I've done since 2003 finish in about 10 - 15 minutes or less. So, just change...
  18. Re: Needed: Distro With NO Dropbox Systray Issues

    More info needed - - which Ubuntu based distros and what DE's did you run? Other than on Elementary, I haven't seen the kind of issue (functional applet in panel) that you describe. If you just...
  19. Re: How often are packages in Ubuntu repositories updated ?

    Yes. Software versions in each release of most distros are frozen snapshots which only receive bug fixes and security updates. Once you actually get to have an inkling of how this all works, you...
  20. mRe: Many newbie Q's. NVIDIA Display Drivers, Dash, Unity bugs, general use

    Hmm . . wow. Methinks you're well on the road to a Linux BSOD (Black Screen of Despair) . . . from which there is "no return" (just kidding - kinda) . .

    So for what it's worth, I have a friend...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: apt-get install cacti cacti-spine UNMET Dependencies

    Are you running 14.04 (Trusty) or 18.04 (Bionic)? If running 18.04, then installing via a 14.04 archive generally not recommended.
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Multiple OS and Proper Partition setup

    CSC . . . already suggested once . . (?).

    But for now, the best option is to get the "Boot Rescue CD" report as suggested by OldFred. That way we can see more of what's actually going on.
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Multiple OS and Proper Partition setup

    Yes, the EFI boot partition is the standard on UEFI. (but if installing GRUB in legacy mode, it will be sda). The recommended size for EFI is 500 MB. The installer iso should be using UEFI...
  24. [SOLVED] Re: Multiple OS and Proper Partition setup


    Usually, on a one physical drive system that means "sda" . . . not sda1, sda2, etc. And certainly not in an unnecessary boot partition or even more useless temp partition. You can...
  25. [SOLVED] Re: Multiple OS and Proper Partition setup

    Also, I kindly suggest you just use the standard installer designed layout for the install - - which is just the root partition and a swap file. So, on a standard install on UEFI - - if you have...
