    Post the output of fdisk -l for the drive in question to reveal the partitioning. For example, if it's sda, post the output of:

    sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda
  2. [ubuntu] Re: LibreOffice Writer - new document won't

    My suggestion, since it's "not happening":

    Install the Flatpak version of L.O. - I use it instead of Ubuntu 2004's version of L.O. And yes, it does launch and open an "Untitled" new document when...

    [SOLVED] Re: MATE: can't find xterm in menu

    Copy the .desktop file from /usr/share/applications to ~/.local/share/applications

    Then it will show immediately in the Menu. (see attachment).

  4. [SOLVED] Re: How to install Tomb Raider 1 in dosbox/ubuntu 20.04

    In general for old DOS games, you copy all files from the original disk into a folder on your computer. Determine the full path to the file (usually an .EXE file) that starts the game.

    [SOLVED] Re: Cannot completely remove Snaps

    When you remove a snap package, you also automatically create a snapshot of all data created for that snap package so that you can restore the snap later with snap restore. I don't know if all those...

    You can try a Firefox addon like "Custom Scrollbars" and see it offers you something wider than the Firefox default.
  7. Re: Firefox 89 - looking for the page actions menu.

    All actions can be done using the 'old ways' that we used before this little menu even existed. So the removed actions menu is basically a convenience one got used to reaching for, and then it's...
  8. Re: When will GNOME 40 have the desktop interface for Ubuntu?

    I have to use Fedora 34 part of the time, and don't see an advantage to the new gnome shell 40 arrangement - at best, its a draw. I especially miss the dock being visible from the desktop. Maybe...

  11. [SOLVED] Re: [Firefox Flatpak] Cannot import bookmarks from HTML file

    It's surprising you didn't have the xdg-desktop-portal. It's a dependency of flatpak.

    dmn@Sydney:~$ apt depends flatpak
    Depends: adduser
    Depends: xdg-desktop-portal (>= 0.10)

    Re: Firefox 89 downgrade to 88.0.2

    A medium term solution might be to install the Firefox ESR version from Software. Choose the esr/stable version from the Source list on the Firefox page (see screenshot). It's the last one in the...

    Re: Firefox 89 downgrade to 88.0.2

    All packaging types for Firefox have automatic upgrading by default - so if you downgrade, it will just just upgrade again. You can block upgrades to the apt version and maybe the Mozilla direct...

    [SOLVED] Re: cannot be preload

    Synaptic Pkg. Manager describes it as "Library to disable gtk+3 client side decorations". It's not installed in my Ubuntu 20.04.2, so maybe you can remove it without harm.
  16. [SOLVED] Re: [Firefox Flatpak] Cannot import bookmarks from HTML file

    I tried the "import bookmarks from HTML.." on Firefox Flatpak 89.0 to see if any problem arose, and the import worked correctly.
    The bookmarks.html was saved to my home folder from the Ubuntu...

    By "nothing happens", are you implying that the window to browse to your bookmarks.html file doesn't open?

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade to 21.04 from 20.10

    Did you fully update your system? Otherwise, Software Updater will not offer an upgrade.

    Re: No system startup sound heard

    That all looks overly complex. I put my startup sound file + the script to run it in ~/.local/bin. The script file must be executable. I put a .desktop file to autorun the script in...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: How to add bookmark (i.e., shortcut) permanently to file manager display?

    (Using Nautilus 3.36, Ubuntu 20.04)

    Browse to folder on other drive you want to bookmark. Right click on the folder in the path. There should be "Add to bookmarks" in the menu. See screenshot.
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Why 2 software stores for the same Software?

    The 50,000 packages are not all Applications. Many are there as support packages to make user applications work; I don't think this type of package is listed in Ubuntu Software or Gnome Software.
  23. [SOLVED] Re: want panel workspace switcher similar to xfce but on Ubuntu (possibly gnome?)

    The "workspace indicator" extension in Gnome Shell 40 has a similar switcher, but in it's current state, it lacks an icon to identify what application is there. You have to rely on your memory of...
  24. Re: Is upgrading from Ubuntu 20.10 to 21.04 safe yet?

    I did two upgrades of Ubuntu 20.10 to 21.04. One was on May 1 from a BIOS install of 20.10, which at the time I assumed was safe, based on the facts as I understood them. It worked with no problems....
