  1. [ubuntu] Re: Laptop [Ubuntu + Windows 10] or [Windows 10 + Ubuntu]?

    Exactly what is no longer supported? The toshiba seems to still be working, and Win 10 and Xbuntu are still supported OSs. Both OSs can be upgraded to newer versions, even if a newer machine would...
  2. Re: Need help for installing Linux and picking right software

    First question would be if you want to relearn what you do with your programs with other replacements. Don't know enough, but think the first five will not work or not work well in Linux. Some...
  3. [xubuntu] Re: Is A Larger USB Beneficial to running Xubuntu Live?

    If you are not going to install soon, can use the bigger drive to hold any data you want to keep. You can also use the bigger USB to install ubuntu on and not worry about installing on your hard...
  4. Re: Do you think maintaining a separate machine solely for PFsense is an overkill ?

  6. Re: Not asked for root/admin password during install

  8. Re: can I change flavours of Ubuntu, without starting from scratch?

    Snaps are not full feature yet. I would google kolourpaint and see if there is a a newer version as ppa. Also see if there are any permissions you check in software store that will allow more...
  9. Re: can I change flavours of Ubuntu, without starting from scratch?

    Changing favours to try to fix problem in a program will usually not help and/or make it worst. Installing different desktops sometimes work well, but other times can make a mess. Test in a VM or...

    Re: Starting dual boot Ubuntu

    Installing from an UEFI source would be the recommended way to install. If you said/check yes, then ubuntu should be UEFI also. Someone else will have to show you how to check.

    I have made the same mistake but the first command is sudo update-grub, need the little line between update and grub. It almost sounds like windows is installed as UEFI and ubuntu installed as...

    [xubuntu] Re: changing firefox tabs

    I have not used them myself, but do remember reading about a few extensions for tab management. A google search for 'firefox tab management' should point you in the right direction.

    In terminal, system-analyze and system-analyze-blame should show what is slowing things up.
  14. Re: how to update firefox on this system ???

    Open up 'software and updates' and check to see when updates are to notify/display to you. Should be daily or weekly, adjust if needed. Since Firefox is included, it should be updated automatically...

    I have a P4 with Cyberbrade Trident graphics(almost 20 years) that still works. Might not play todays games, but just for browsing and watching media it is okay. Maybe not for 1080 or 4K, but 720...
  16. Re: ideas to how to use a old busted up laptop.

    Liquid and laptop keyboards usually do not mix well together. Got lucky only keyboard stopped working. Can use USB hubs if more ports are wanted.

    Re: CBS All Access

    A lot of stuff does not list Linux, but still works. By a couple of versions, you mean 14.04 instead of 18.04, or 18.04 instead of 19.10? 14.04 will give problems, 18.04 might work. It also...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Dell Precision 5820 : Ubuntu 16.4 installation

    If it was made after 2016, then Ubuntu 16.04 might not have the right drivers for it. If you let us know what software you need, maybe someone can tell if it will work with 18.04

  24. Re: Why is a package manager not preinstalled?

    Snap is very new and still in testing phase, still has some bugs. Deb is the old and well tested, but each version of Ubuntu/Linux needs a new Deb made. Snap is suppose to not need this.
  25. Re: Why is a package manager not preinstalled?

    'Software and updates' take care of the first two. Synaptic can be installed by the 'software store'. Usually also install 'gdebi' because sometimes it works best.
