    Re: Firefox Snap as Default in 21.10

    I agree with this remark by ajgreeny. Also, no one has yet mentioned that Firefox comes as a Flatpak as well. I have been using that version in a number of installations for quite a while.

  5. Re: Dualboot with 2nd Linux distro (EFI + Grub)

    These incorrect menuentries happen when the distros are not closely related and one probes the other to make a grub menuentry. Two Ubuntu-based distros would likely not do this.

    Re: 32bit download

    As far as Ubuntu flavors, you have to go back to 18.04 releases to find any with some existing support. I know Ubuntu MATE has one - it's still on my own 32-bit laptop. The packages on it are no...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS Icons disappear from desktop display

    Also check the settings for 'Desktop Icons' - use the gear symbol next to the switch. There are options there to display home folder icon and trash icon. Do those display?

    Check that the gnome-shell extension "Desktop Icons" is turned ON.
    Search for and open 'Extensions' application where this can be done.

    Only if you install 20.04 or 20.04.1 do you keep the 5.4 kernel. Otherwise, you have what is called the Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) with kernel changing as your system reaches each new point...
  11. Re: New Ubuntu 20 install on DELL AIO desktop - video problems

    Since the new 5.11 kernel appears suspect and your install is new, it might be easiest to just install Ubuntu 20.04.1, which has the 5.4 kernel.

  16. [ubuntu] Re: How to adjust the size of top menu bar

    Right. Some of the gnome applications have independent font setting in their preferences - text editor does, and so does terminal just to name two. So you can make further adjustments in those.

    I did the same upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04, but don't see what you describe. It sounds unusable. I suggest first trying a different application theme. If you don't find or get a fix, you might try a...

    Re: Launcher for Favorite Files?

    Sorry about that. Must be mental fatigue. I had forgotten about the other thread. With the changes in Gnome Shell 40, I have little hope we will see it there either.

    It would be safer if he maintains an up-to-date web browser. For Firefox, download and manually install the latest Firefox version from Mozilla.org - it is self-updating.

  25. Re: Problems with the installer/UEFI

    Since you say MX Linux works ok, it's apparently being ignored. But I would remove it anyway if I were you. See the screenshot I added to the previous post. I have no flags on the MX Linux partition.
