  1. [xubuntu] Re: How do I create a back that allows me to retain my desktop and settings

    Cheers, M8. That is a lot to digest. I will see how I get on with LuckyBackup then. It seems to be pretty good and easy to configure for novices like me. I'd be interested in your views of it if...
  2. [xubuntu] Re: How do I create a back that allows me to retain my desktop and settings

    Interesting, but another league to me.



    For me, the data and the setup are the most important. Data is obviouse, but getting everything set up the way I like it can take weeks so that is why...
  3. [xubuntu] Re: How do I create a back that allows me to retain my desktop and settings

    Interesting. I used LuckyBackup and just found it again. So, giving that a go. It has loads of options, directory level and file type all include or exclude. Has a schedule, a dry run too.

    Cheers and noted - PS not getting any notifications of messages. Sorry.
  5. [xubuntu] Re: How do I create a back that allows me to retain my desktop and settings

    If there is too much to go through then people get frustrated and confused and either walk away or ask for help in a blog. Anyway, it is what it is.



    No probs. Sort of looks fine. I am not...
  6. [xubuntu] Re: How do I create a back that allows me to retain my desktop and settings

    Gentlemen
    Firstly apologies for the tardy reply. I am drowning in repairs/projects and none seem to want to get fixed so they keep increasing I am THE Ouslumbird!

    Let me take each one of these...

    Oldfred, I think this gentleman needs your talents and majic wand. :-)
  8. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    Hello, been a long time. Yes, can't agree more. Bad enough for those who understand this stuff, but for us mere mortal folk it's impossible. I got there in the end, after 3 weeks of trying...
  9. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    Glad I'm not the only one. Will this cause a problem for those of us with a slightly older board?
  10. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    Can't have UEFI only with no CSM. CSM has to be turned on for UEFI to be shown.
    3rd party, defiantly no. There is a known bug and I certainly could not install anything if selected in this 20:10...
  11. [xubuntu] How do I create a back that allows me to retain my desktop and settings

    Something I have wanted to do for an age having every now and then had the need to rebuild a machine. More at the start than now. However it has just happened and now live in eternal fear of it...
  12. Re: Ubuntu 20.10 Freezes on startup or after login screen

    1.
    SO that sounds like it is between GRUP menu and the login screen. GRUB is a system that Linux installs to allow you to boot into any number of installed OS, often referred to as dual booting.
    ...
  13. Re: Ubuntu 20.10 Freezes on startup or after login screen

    A question you shall be asked is if it freezes before or after GRUB menu... Or does it freeze after you enter your password at, normally as an example Lightdm login welcome screen.

    What graphics...
  14. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    Yup too much to absorb. I shall open a new Query. ANd that snap thing is annoying. It gives errors no matter how I install apps - synaptic or apt-get install. I'm also having a problem in that it...
  15. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    Cheers, probably right.

    I have another problem that has materialised so will start a new one for that too;. The app stores do not install apps and thumbnails don't show and in synaptic it keeps...
  16. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    OK, As of late last night I now have a working PC. I know there will be a few more apps and settings to add, but, it is now there. Can not believe how painful that was.

    Next. I am not turning...
  17. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    ,
    Gentlemen, thank you for your replies and apologies for my tardy response. Everything is falling down around me with about 7 projects to fix things that failed/broke in the past 3 weeks, and...
  18. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    I am going to have to get my head around this.

    I have the PC all but set up now, but before I crack on I would like to ask a few questions:
    1. The resolution is set correctly, but I note that the...
  19. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    Cheers. TBH I somehow managed to get it working again late last night. I plan to spend about an hour or so tonight on it. I live in fear of touching anything. There are loads of boot options. ...
  20. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    Maybe. I was wondering if something was going on in the background or it does not like the mouse and keyboard for some reason....

    Because you said "If new motherboard in UEFI mode," so wondered...
  21. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    OK. That worked, BUT I have to start from scratch and I do not know if it was the gpt, the wiped HDD which came with the change to gpt, or the not include 3rd party SW...

    So a new issue, besides...
  22. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    No, only video board. The HDDs and motherboard, etc were installed, I think 2014ish.

    I have been in a conf call and come down with a to hell with it.... I have just booted into Live CD and used...
  23. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    No, hadn't got that far. But new board arrived and installed so got the old out. It was a GXT 430. The new is in but still the same issues.
    I tried with CSM - off
    paste.ubuntu.com/p/mp2qQRK46C/...
  24. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    If CSM is off, then I get no options for the bootloader. I can not choose whether legacy or UIEF. See below images. As you can see the options are below the CSM and disappear. This I have done as...
  25. Re: Can not get GRUB or EFI to install and work

    This machine has nothing else on it. Fortunately, it is not used a great deal so not causing me pain, just a lot of wasted time and frustration. Anyway. tried CSM on and off, Security on and off,...
