  1. [ubuntu] Re: Where to install programs in a good way?

    @fernand2226
    Don't worry about this. 20 GB is plenty, you'll be surprised at how little space the applications take. I have LibreOffice, KiCAD, LibreCAD, GNU Octave, VLC Player, Opera, AVIDemux,...

    Re: Administrative User & Its Permissions.

    I think I understand the problem now. aabedii is caught in a DOS/Windows mindset loop.
    Trying to explore disks in the file manager (in this case, PCManFM-Qt) makes no sense at all. I get exactly the...

    Frankly, forget the Hibernate thing right now. I'll help you with that later.

    Re: Administrative User & Its Permissions.

    Most likely you selected automatic partitioning during install.
    The Lubunutu installer will in that case only make a / partition that contains everything.
    You should have selected manual...

    @pslacker:

    Re: Lubuntu - root password at install time?

    The Username and Password entered during Lubuntu installation is for the "main" user who has sudo permissions.

    Re: Swap partition/file in new install

    I'm confused. Is this a VM setup or a real install?

    This reply only applies if it's a real install.

    [ubuntu] Re: Excessive battery drain on suspend

    Well, at least dconf reset -f / should have cured the setting files problem.

    [ubuntu] Re: Excessive battery drain on suspend

    This is a bad idea. The hidden settings files in $HOME are in a lot of cases hardware dependent, you can't just copy them from one machine to another.
