    Re: Antergos

    With openSUSE 42.2, as with Ubuntu 16.04, I update the system whenever I get around to it, without much concern.

    Antergos, I basically run it like I run Arch -- I bring in updates at least once a...

    [UbuntuGnome] Re: How do you even use Gnome?

    I first tried GNOME 3 almost 6 years ago, in a live session of Fedora 15; didn't care for it all that much. Then I took another look, spending some time with GNOME Shell in a Fedora 16 installation,...

    Re: Needs to ask before trying Debian

    Some of the members over there get irritated with folks who don't even try to search for solutions, and who ask questions that have already been asked over and over again. Take a look at this (link...

    Pffft. I'd sell the video games and go get myself some real food.

    Re: Should I make the full switch to linux?

    Too many "showstopping issues" for you, maybe, but many of us have completely switched to Linux and are getting along just fine with it. I haven't used Windows at home in years. Depends on the user....

    [ubuntu] Re: /home on separate partition

    I still do this, separate / and /home partitions, for no particularly good reason because I always prefer a fresh installation rather than an upgrade. Well, there was one time several years back when...

    Re: HP Pavilion 15ab 268 Ubuntu Compatibility?

    Hm. That looks quite similar to the HP Star Wars Edition notebook I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 on. This one's basically an HP Pavilion 15 with a bunch of Star Wars design and stuff added to it, but Intel...

    Re: Is Ubuntu 16.04 bad?

    Lol. Pffft. Looks like that video was put out there by a known Linux- and Ubuntu-hater, and not everyone is running into the same issues that he complained about. Take it for what it's worth, I...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Is there a Live Install option that will not try to install grub?

    With some distros you can do the installation without installing grub. Used to be able to do it in Ubuntu with the alternate CD, but there's no alternate CD now. See...

    [gnome] Re: Switch to Gnome from Unity 16.04

    I had GNOME Shell added to Ubuntu 14.04. Don't remember exactly how I installed it, but I was planning to add GNOME Shell to 16.04, too. At the moment I'm running 15.10, so just now I added GNOME...
  13. Re: How unsafe is it to store passwords in plain text files?

    Lol. Index cards, that's exactly what I've been using. But I think I might start storing passwords in a plain text file on a flash drive.
  14. Re: Question for LTS users - will you be upgrading to 16.04?

    I replaced 14.04 with 15.10, but normally I stay with the LTS releases; I'm planning to install 16.04 (fresh install).

    Re: How I made gnome shell usable again

    Yep, I guess I'm one of those fans (although I think Unity's great, too). I've used various extensions in the past but now I find that I get around quite comfortably in GNOME Shell without having any...

    Hm. I prefer Ubuntu over Mint, and I like Unity better than Cinnamon, but nothing's stopping me from using some other DE with Ubuntu (and sometimes I do that). Don't really care about the Ubuntu...

    Re: ubuntu vs linux mint

    For the OP, Linux Mint might be the better choice, seems to me. Mint's certainly an excellent distro.

    For personal use, I prefer Ubuntu over Mint. I use either Unity or GNOME Shell in Ubuntu and...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: 14.04 LTS old kernels - are they still installed or not?

    Just to clarify, are you saying that the fact that Ubuntu does not by default automatically remove old kernels is a bug?
  22. Re: Extremely bored of Linux Mint, Ubuntu, what should I use

    1. Install Debian Stable. It's a bit more of a challenge than installing Ubuntu or Mint, but you'll probably learn some good things. Once you get it all set up the way you want it, maybe you'll be...

    [lubuntu] Re: Guide to using Openbox session in Lubuntu

    Sorry, vasa1, I hadn't gone back to try to get the real icons to display, mainly because the icons in question are for apps that I really don't use, or rarely use.
  25. [ubuntu] Re: 14.04 LTS old kernels - are they still installed or not?

    Ugh. The info here under "How to Clean up Old Kernel Images" is incomplete, as it says nothing about if entries are prepended with "rc" instead of "ii" when you run dpkg --list | grep linux-image or...
