  1. Re: how to create the what in spanish is : "acento circunflejo" en una escritura de t

    Re: Emoji

    Bash doesn't care whether your characters are latin, chinese or emoji. It knows a few special characters, all of which are ascii, and considers everything else a letter. The important part is whether...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: vi editor from remote doing something weird

    I think that the terminal you use to set up the connection to your remote machine uses a different character encoding than what vim puts out. These days everything should be utf8, which is a superset...

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Replaced dead HDD with new HDD running Ubuntu 20.04 and backup?

    How did you create that backup? How are the files stored? I don't use any of those fancy backup tools, but some home-made script. That makes it easy to restore, even if the original tool isn't...

    [ubuntu] Re: How to open misplaced backup file

    A backup file is not a filetype of its own. It's just a copy of a file, stored under a different name, so that's still a text file.

    Can you tell us which application you used to make and save that...
  9. Re: why are 'apt upgrade' and 'apt-get upgrade' doing different things?

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade to specific version

    There's no release upgrade from 18.04 to 18.04.4. 18.04.4 is no separate release. It is a separate live disk image, with all the bugfixes released between April 2018 and January 2020 built in. If you...

  22. Re: Multiple Python locations? I do not know why they are there?

    On Ubuntu 20.04, Python 3.8 is vital. You can't have a working Ubuntu 20.04 without Python 3.8, so it must have been installed already. Python 2.7 is no longer installed by default, but may be...

    [kubuntu] Re: 20.04 ISO image always gets checked

    I doubt the files are copied to the hard drive. After all, nothing should be written to the hard drive when just booting a live disk. They may be cached in RAM.
