    Re: Lubuntu - Software Installation

    You can't click in a terminal; it's a text interface. You can interact with text-based menus using tab or the arrow keys to select a button, then enter to push it. I think it has been like that since...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: All commands used in terminal are the same used in all Linux distros ?

    Mostly. Not every command line tool is installed on every Linux and not always the same version, but there is a set of more or less standard tools that do exactly the same thing at least while using...
  3. Re: LUBUNTU Mouse pointer very fast even in minimal speed settings

    I don't use Lubuntu, so I don't know about mouse settings in Lubuntu (not to mention Windows; haven't used it in ages), but there may be separate settings for sensitivity and acceleration. It sounds...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: ext4 file system creation fails while installing

    Was there anything on that disk before you started? Have you checked the health of your hard drive? How is it partitioned now?

    Re: Lubuntu - Software Installation

    Could you show the exact commands and full outputs, instead of approximations? You can copy-paste stuff from a terminal to the forum. You can select and paste directly with the middle mouse button,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Slow response in 20.04

    top or htop provide the same information as the system monitor and run in terminal, so can be used over ssh.
  7. Re: Acronis true image alternative for dual boot system

    dd works fine with ntfs partitions, but always includes the free space in the backup. You can use an image of an installed system to install Ubuntu on a second machine (provided the hardware is...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Installing and booting Windows 10 from a solid state drive

    Can you boot a live disk, install Boot-Repair and create a bootinfo summary? That may tell us what's going on.
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Have any text editor that allow change background color and text color ?

    I never tried such colour features. Just try a few of them. As you use Lubuntu, a qt-based editor like kate may be better than a gtk-based editor like gedit. For terminal-based text editors like vim...

    Re: overheating + related concerns

    That's remarkable, as all the energy that goes out of the battery is converted into heat.
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Have any text editor that allow change background color and text color ?

    There's a huge number of text editors: gedit, nedit, kate, vim, emacs, nano, ..., not to mention the really arcane ed. Every somewhat decent text editor supports search and replace. My favourite text...
  12. Re: LUBUNTU How install "obsolete" software ?

    Have a look at the manual and the config files you find in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/. You should be able to put the line in /etc/apt/apt.conf (create it if it doesn't exist). Actually, maybe you need the...
  13. Re: How uninstall softwares included in LUbuntu ?

    Simple tools have no config files in HOME, but many big applications have. They are usually in $HOME/.appname or in $HOME/.config/appname or something like that. Note that files/directories with a...
  14. Re: LUBUNTU How install "obsolete" software ?

    A lot of information can be found in the manuals. Use
    man [subject]to read the manual page about one subject, like a command or a system config file. They're not always easy to read, but it's a...
  15. Re: LUBUNTU How install "obsolete" software ?

    I think apt-get, update-manager and synaptic keep all downloaded packages in cache until it's cleared, but apt removes packages from cache after succesful installation. I guess that can be...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Muon Check for Updates, Could not download packages

    Your package manager works fine, except when checking for updates from google. To fix it, use
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 78BD65473CB3BD13
  17. Re: LUBUNTU How install "obsolete" software ?

    Packages get cached in /var/cache/apt/archives/. This cache can be cleared automatically, so you may have to tweak some settings to prevent that.

    Debian only calls something stable when it's...
  18. Re: How uninstall softwares included in LUbuntu ?

    I don't know about Windows. On Ubuntu, apt (or apt-get, or one of the other interfaces to the same) is the package manager and with the remove action it acts as an uninstaller for all properly...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Help understanding environment and shell variables

    The word "terminal" is loosely used for terminal emulator all the time, but there's indeed a clear difference with shell, even though that word too is often used interchangeably. This is because...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unable to Install 20.04 LTS

    Your Windows uses dynamic partitions. This isn't supported by Linux. In a sense, the Ubuntu installer shows you the real partitions, but Windows pools them together and then splits them in a...
  21. [xubuntu] Re: Installed Xubuntu 20.04 then problems with root

    It's best not to run any GUI applications as root. It comes with many problems. To edit text files as root, use the sudoedit command. You can use the EDITOR environment variable to let it use any...

    Re: Lubuntu - Software Installation

    Which version of Lubuntu? Support for 32 bit is coming to an end. Show us:
    cat /etc/lsb-release
    uname -a
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Help understanding environment and shell variables

    1: They can be all over the place. /etc/environment, /etc/profile, ~/.profile, ~/.bashrc. Many are set by processes. For example, the terminal sets an environment variable (TERM) to tell the shell in...
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Weird folder named "~" which is unreadable and empty in home

    Let's find out a bit more about this directory. In the terminal, try this:
    ls -l *~*I use the * just in case there are leading or trailing spaces, so this will print details about all files and...
  25. [SOLVED] Re: My hdd is unmounted every time I start my pc

    Technically, hard drives aren't mounted. Filesystems are mounted and filesystems typically reside on partitions and a harddrive can have zero, one or more partitions.

    Linux (in contrast to Windows...
