    Is this a pristine Ubuntu-Mate install or is it an additional DE that has been layered on top of an existing one?
    If no other DE, was this a network version upgrade from 18.10, or is it a virgin...

    Please post with the default fonts, styles and sizes. Oddball formatting might fail to render properly on small screens and can be challenging to those with vision limitations.
  3. Re: Could not acquire name on session bus (19.04)

    Please have a look at the link in my sig "Linux Is Not Windows". I'm afraid that if you don't have the time to devote to learning the new moves, then your pessimism may likely become a...

    Re: Kubuntu

    As Autodave has stated, you are better off leaving everything alone at this point. If you are getting odd behaviour, you are better off backing up your data and re-installing from scratch.

    Re: Sharing a Folder in Ubuntu via AFP

    You need to install something on your Linux box to act as a file server. This can be Netatalk, NFS or Samba. Optionally, you can SSH into your Linux box from your Apple box and transfer files with...

    Re: Saying goodbye to Canonical

    Rats. Just cannot get rid of you, can we? :p

    After a spell of distro-hopping very early on in my voyage of Linux discovery, I've largely settled down. I found that there is simply no such thing as...

    Re: Saying goodbye to Canonical

    For KDE enthusiasts who are thinking about the same move oldrocker99 is making (moving to Arch-based), consider Chakra. It's actually a fork of Arch (instead of a derivative or spin) and has a much...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: unable to Upgrade or remove any package

    It is stingy of you to post the bare output without the slightest further comment on the context, background or goals you are trying to achieve.

    Re: How much should I use Ubuntu?

    You appear to mean well, so I will take it in the spirit (hopefully) intended.

    I agree with the first part of your statement, but the second part is problematic: it is a generalization that paints...

    Re: .bashrc questions

    I hope I won't get flak for saying this, but I find the man page for bash to be especially gruesome. It is arcane, obscure, long, dense and filled with jargon, technicalities and geek-speak. Gurus...

    [ubuntu] Re: few problem i had when trying ubunto

    This is true. If you absolutely must use resource-intensive Windows apps, then Windows on bare metal is needed. This means either Windows as a host with Ubuntu in a VM, or dual boot.

    Stick to 64-bit. You should have no problem running that, and 32-bit is quickly becoming obsolete.
