    Re: UK vs US keyboard password problem

    Rather than getting into a muddle with locales and keyboard layouts, you could boot into recovery mode and temporarily change the password to something without symbols. Then you can log in normally...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: NVidia driver no longer loading after kernel update

    The shim between the kernel and the binary blob is specific to each kernel version. If you install the driver through the package manager that shim generally gets automatically rebuilt by DKMS. If...
  3. Re: help moving linux boot partition to its own disk

    As a general rule, you don't need a swap partition. A swap file is fine.

    The two places that you'll need to amend the UUIDs to reflect your new partitions are fstab and Grub. Grub can stay in the...
  4. Re: Upgrading windows 7 to windows 10 on a Dual Boot Windows/Ubuntu system

    Windows in general likes to pretend that no other OS exists. Malicious or careless breaking of your Linux part is a possibility.



    Make backups. Prepare your install media. Accept the...

    Re: Who is the "owner" of files?

    You already know it's important to get the case right, and you've learned that you can enclose names within "", but another thing that's extremely helpful is using Tab-completion. Type the first...

    Re: Installing CUDA on 18.04 LTS

    Glad to hear you're up and running again.



    Here's a list of the metapackages that nvidia use, in case that's useful.

    Re: Who is the "owner" of files?

    The owner of the file is the owner of the file. You can see which user that is with ls -l or the file attributes in your file browser.

    Changing ownership of files willy-nilly is generally the...

    Re: Installing CUDA on 18.04 LTS

    I would go for everything.

    The nvidia drivers don't upgrade cleanly between branches in any case, and you seem to be in a bit of a pickle. Purging all the nvidia packages, and probably the cuda...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Is this normal? Airplane mode toggle.

    No.

    Gnome got a lot less buggy after Ubuntu switched to it by default, but many of those fixes went into later releases rather than being backported. I don't know if that behaviour is one of the...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Trying to send audio to two audio cards at same time, I am confused.

    It's a while since I played with them, but PulseAudio's config files are pretty straightforward. Now that you've found the name of the option, it's just a case of adding that option to the file. I...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Trying to send audio to two audio cards at same time, I am confused.

    Not quite. By default each source goes to one sink. Not all sources need to go to the same sink, though.

    PulseAudio comes with the ability to create virtual output devices that do exactly what...
  12. [lxde] Re: Shell Script with curl works on terminal but not as menu launcher.

    You don't need to launch an additional terminal or shell. Just using Terminal=true is sufficient. You would need something to keep the terminal open so you can see the output.

    This works fine:

    These are both very bad ideas.

    Re: Smartd to check SSD Disk Health

    The short SMART test isn't comprehensive.

    Inconsistent data meaning that you're forced to run fsck, and failed SMART tests, certainly sounds like hard drive failure to me.
  16. Re: Bluetooth headphones only get low-quality audio profile

    It's not at the PulseAudio stage, it's at the Bluetooth pairing stage that the devices negotiate which profile to use. Because Bluetooth is low-bandwidth and the standard started a long time ago you...

    [ubuntu] Re: Using Ubuntu for work

    If you don't use Adobe Creative Cloud then it doesn't matter whether they make a version for Linux or not.

    Dell sell laptops with Ubuntu pre-installed if you want to use Linux for work without...
  18. Re: can I change flavours of Ubuntu, without starting from scratch?

    I would, yes.

    The use case of software developers are much different from the use cases of end users. I'm sure that person has some definite reason for preferring the latest-and-greatest.

  19. Re: can I change flavours of Ubuntu, without starting from scratch?

    LTS releases are best for home users unless they're running very new hardware. We've seen many cases of new users being stranded on the intermediate releases because they didn't realise that they...
  20. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    That is a perfectly healthy attitude. I broke a bunch of stuff in the beginning, too.



    It's not for the script, it's for the launcher that launches the script. As I mentioned earlier, that...
  21. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    It's definitely worth a shot. If you simply deleted that directory, and your backup contains that, then that's what your backup is for.
  22. Re: Choppy video playback of mobile phone video

    I haven't tried the snap version of mpv (in fact, I remove snapd from my systems so I never have any snaps) but snaps are restricted in where they can read or write to. That might be why mpv can't...
  23. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    For completeness:

    Gnome used to default to a standard drop-down menu for launching applications, and many desktop environments still do.

    Desktop files are agnostic ways of defining the...
  24. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    All your user settings are in /home (that's what it's for) so copying those back into a fresh install will make everything how it was. There are also commands for listing every package that you've...
  25. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    Actually, systemd turns it into a one-liner:


    pkexec systemctl reboot --boot-loader-entry=windows and you can easily configure polkit to allow the user to do only that action without a password....
