    Re: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Python3 version

    Why is this so important to you?

    I have no idea how secure that it would be if you did so, and I would most certainly recommend you do not do so, but you can pin the current version of any package...
  2. Re: Are Lubuntu and Xubuntu stable and supported enough?

    I can't comment on Lubuntu as I no longer use it, but Xubuntu is very stable, fast and popular with many users of this forum.

    The development of Xfce4 has slowed down recently according to some...
  3. [lubuntu] Re: Conky 1.10.8 does start properly during autostart

    At cold boot you really need to add an option to pause the actual start of conky (as shown in man conky)
    as it will not start properly if the DE is not fully up and running. I personally use a 20...

    Re: What other distros should I try?

    I would also suggest Arcolinux, a simpler to install version of Arch, as worth trying. It's a rolling release so once installed you have only to keep running normal updates and never (in theory, at...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Home partition - how to take full ownership of partition and all content

    No, no, no!

    Do not run that same chown command on any folder in /opt or in /usr or you will probably cause even bigger problems for yourself.

    Did you set that home partition at install with the...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Problems connecting an USB to my Ubuntu VirtualBox

    Re: Installed Ubuntu now I'm bored...

    :lolflag:

    Oh, how right you are!!!!

    Conky can become great toy or a huge frustration, and if you want to use up spare time install it and start playing; it's never boring!
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Problems connecting an USB to my Ubuntu VirtualBox

    Have you installed the guest additions package which will probably help with USB connections?

    You can get the package from...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: how do I put a delay on autostart programs?

    I do not use Lubuntu and have forgotten all I knew back when I tried it, but you probably need to change the command used in the autostart system to something similar to sleep 15; update-manager,...

    Re: Installed Ubuntu now I'm bored...

    I can also relate to this in a big way.

    Just for some excitement I recently tried Arch, though the simple way using Arcolinux instead of the rather long, drawn out method using Arch itself.

    Re: enlarge pdf music score

    A quicker way may be to insert the pdf as an image into a libreoffice writer page, when it will probably fill the page out to whatever margins you have set.

    You should also be able to simply use...
  13. Re: Curious problem with setting up Ubuntu

    [SOLVED] Re: how to see drives?

    If you click on the small arrow next to a USB drive in thunar, the xfce4 file manager it ejects the USB, one step further than simply unmounting it. This removes it from the system completely; it's...

    Re: 2 Network Icons

    In xfce4 there are both "Notification plugin" and "Notification area" applets available for the panel; I do not know if this is also the case with lxde (or lxqt in 18.10 and 19.04) but check what...

    What output does the command free -mw give you?
  17. [all variants] Re: file-roller doesn't have a select all feature

    See if engrampa is a better choice for you as it has the Edit->Select All menu item; it is included in Xubuntu 18.04 as the default, I think, though file-roller also is installed.
  18. Re: Downgrading Ubuntu (uninstall vs. override)

    The info in that link to an old thread is still more or less correct but there are two comments I will make.
