  1. Re: Corrupted/removed Grub, can't boot into Linux. Partition not visible from Gparted

    Removal of grub from the system should not stop gparted or the live system from still seeing the hard disk.

    When running the live USB do any volumes show in the left hand pane of the file-manager?...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: CVE-2021-3156 vulnerability -- sudo upgrade

    Re: Cannot get Xubuntu to boot after install

    The default "clean install" that you are talking about is, I assume, the option to "Use the whole disk" and allow the installer to create the partitions that are necessary?

  8. [kubuntu] Re: /boot full but can't update due to broken package 20.04

    So now is a very good time to run command

  9. [kubuntu] Re: /boot full but can't update due to broken package 20.04

    I also have an icon in my toolbar which allows me to toggle the spellchecker display off and on.

    Re: Nitroshare in Ubuntu 20.04

    Check your settings in the LO -> Tools -> Options -> Writer to see what you have in the Language and Writing Aids sections.
