  1. [gnome] Re: Desktop icons suddenly displayed in 19.04

    There's a setting somewhere for whether the "desktop directory" is ~/Desktop or ~. It looks like something has changed that setting. I don't use Gnome any more, so I couldn't tell you where it is,...

    Re: Play video in chromium

    The good thing about using Chromium rather than Chrome is that you can use hardware accelerated video decoding, which Chrome doesn't support. However, Chromium is not allowed to distribute the...

    Re: Ubuntu Overheating on Idle

    Those aren't dependencies, they are packages that provide a version of turbostat. Linux-tools-common is the one to use if you're using Linux Standard Base, and one of the others if you aren't.

  4. [SOLVED] Re: Power/Battery Indicator for LXQt panel without lxqt-powermanagement?

    If you only want to read the battery status, rather than actually fiddling with stuff, you could just use conky for that.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Home partition - how to take full ownership of partition and all content

    To amplify what ajgreeny has said, running graphical applications as root will give you exactly the kind of permissions problems you've said you have. Root is not the same as "Run As Administrator." ...

    Re: Ubuntu Overheating on Idle

    First of all, unless you shut it down properly, turning it off suddenly is way more harmful than letting it run at 71C. That temperature is hot, sure, but not very hot. Things will generally start...

    Re: upgrading hardware. move hdd over?

    Use UUIDs rather than device names. It's been the default to do so for a long time. It's not just moving it into a new machine that can cause the ordering to change: it used to sometimes happen...

    Re: Burning DVD with Brasero...

    I can't say anything about your burning issues, but your resolution was way too high. DVDs are MPEG-2 video at 720576, for PAL, or 720480, for NTSC. There is also a specific directory structure...
  9. Re: Why do companies throw out good computers?

    Because it's cheaper than doing anything else with them.

    The cost of new hardware (particularly if bought in bulk or as part of a service contract) is peanuts compared to the productivity gains...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Home partition - how to take full ownership of partition and all content

    How, exactly, did you do that? Creating a /home partition as part of the install sorts out the permissions automatically.

    You only want the user to have ownership of their own Home folder....

    Re: Logtech G500 side buttons

    libratbag seems to support that mouse. Piper is an easy way to control libratbag. There's a PPA that will help you install the latest versions of each.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Disk use analyzer claims almost out of space

    Snaps each have their own little pretend filesystem to use so that they aren't affected by anything else. Those are listed as loop devices. We don't need to see them; they'll just make the output...

    Re: HDMI "Gamebridge" for Linux?

    The term that will help you find what you're looking for is "hdmi capture." Some say that they work on Linux.
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Restore audio function in (now) Xubuntu 18.04 LTS

    aptitude is a command-line package manager, but it's not installed by default. You can install it with
    sudo apt install aptitude or use apt instead.

    Re: HDD's

    The simplest way is to mount one of those drives as /home. There are a bunch of tutorials for creating the partition, copying the stuff across, and then automatically mounting it at boot. All your...

    [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 19.04 Sudo Issues

    I agree that that's the most likely from the information we have so far. Thinking of as many possible causes as you can for a particular behaviour is good practise, that's all.

    Another option for a cause is that their PATH doesn't include /usr/bin for some reason.
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Is it using any non-open-source drivers?

    I have no idea; I've never tried using AMD graphics. I don't think there's much performance difference between them.
  20. Re: Monotor with Built-in speakers, microphone and webcam

    Glad to hear that everything's started to work now.


    The speakers are only 2 W: they aren't going to go very loud.

    According to the manual, there's a volume rocker at the bottom-left of the...

  22. [ubuntu] Re: Unable to Update Windows 10-DUAL BOOT UBUNTU 18.04LTS

    And a lot of people without dual boot have that problem. A vast number of people use Windows, and Windows' update mechanism is notoriously sketchy.
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Unable to Update Windows 10-DUAL BOOT UBUNTU 18.04LTS

    There's no reason to think it had anything to do with Grub. That's just the way Windows Update works.
  24. Re: Software Updater removed old kernels?

    apt has had this feature for a long time. The configuration was too conservative in 14.04, which was part of the issue with the boot partition being too small for that release. It's been fine for...
