  2. Re: /etc/sudoers is owned by uid 1000, should be 0

    That's exactly what caused it. The only fix is a reinstall. Don't do it again.
  3. Re: building a newer PC - which GPU to choose

    This isn't true in general. At a given price point both AMD and Nvidia have cards that perform about the same and have about the same performance-per-Watt. The confusion is because of the high end:...
  4. Re: Best Linux distro for 32 bits old computer with 1 or 2GB ram?

    Getting a Raspberry Pi will give you a much faster computer that uses way less power than something that old, and with far fewer headaches.

    [ubuntu] Re: Any advice re Cinnamon on 20.04?

    There isn't really a question there.

    It's easy to install the cinnamon desktop in Ubuntu. There is also an Ubuntu Cinnamon desktop remix that installs cinnamon by default.

    What is it that you...

    Re: using ubuntu as media center.

    You could be thinking of Mythbuntu, which ran MythTV and did briefly become an official flavour, or Kodibuntu, which came from the Kodi devs. Both distro projects are discontinued.

    Re: Partition guide

    Partitioning is irrelevant. You can make it as simple or as complicated as you like.

    What you want are backups.

    [ubuntu] Re: Starting .sh from panel

    I don't think that the permissions of the script have anything to do with it. It seems very likely to me that the issue is that your application is writing directly to the hardware, which standard...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Boot Options

    The thing that you'll want to look for is chain-loading; Grub loads the Windows bootloader in the MBR of your Windows 7 drive and then that bootloader loads Windows 7.

    I've never done it, so I...

    [ubuntu] Re: TaskBars Keep Locking Up

    I haven't used gnome of any sort for quite a while now, but
    killall gnome-panel might give your task manager enough of a kick to start behaving without having to do a full restart of the machine. I...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: HDMI not responding, NVIDIA, Ubuntu 18.04.3 fresh install

    It's probably worth trying KDE if you're using Gnome (or Gnome if you're using KDE).

    You may have hit the limits of the underlying framework, with X, KMS, Optimus being a nightmare, and so on, but...

    [SOLVED] Re: Can't upgrade to 18.10

    The output that you'd posted specifically said so. Even though package management seems like magic sometimes, it isn't; it's just an insanely connected set of scripts, file formats, and data...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: How to resize Ubuntu 18.04 Partition on Dual Boot Windows 10

    That's not true. You can't move the boundaries of the extended partition container past the boundaries of the logical partitions inside, obviously, but you can move either end through unpartitioned...

    I've not tried to install 19.10, but my understanding is that the package for the proprietary driver is included in the live image, but the live image doesn't use the proprietary driver - since that...

    There are still some tasks that you can do with a low RAM machine. Surfing the modern Internet isn't one of them.

  20. [SOLVED] Re: Bugged default drivers for Radeon HD 6650M in 18.04 LTS. What to do next?

    Glad to hear things are working better for you now.



    Now that you know fixes went in somewhere between 18.04 and the ever-moving now, you could find a PPA that's after those fixes but with a...

    That is one that I've seen mentioned. The other one I can recall is Padoka stable. It really depends on how new you end up needing.



    The odds of it bricking your install are essentially nil,...

    fglrx is dead. It's definitely not worth trying to staple its corpse to your install.

    There are PPAs that provide newer versions of the Mesa stack. I haven't used them, so I couldn't recommend a...
