  1. [ubuntu] Re: Second screen not detected on HP Zbook with Ubuntu 19.10

    I'm not so familiar with nvidia driver settings...

    Have you tried a 20.04 live disk? I ask because 19.10 is only two weeks or so away from end of life, so it isn't really worth fixing this on...
  2. Re: Partition Confusion Help Me Identify Them

    A GPT disk is a disk with a GUID (globally unique identifier) partition table. This is a hard drive partitioned the modern way and yours is.

    The /boot/efi partition will be partition 1. It's...
  3. [ubuntu_studio] Re: Software center update stalled ? Snap ?

    I may not completely understand your problem. Maybe some background helps.

    There are two ways in which software gets packaged for Ubuntu. Two main ways, there are some others. There are deb...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu forgets include something important.

    Intuitive is subjective. What someone with years of Windows experience considers intuitive may be very counter-intuitive for someone else. Ubuntu isn't Windows and doesn't try to be, so to a...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: i've tried to remove skype with no success

    Chances are that the one in /usr/bin is a symlink to the one in /opt.

    The output suggests that you installed skype from a PPA. There's a file named /etc/apt/sources.list.d/skype-stable.list. The...
  6. Re: libpng packages broken and resist being fixed!?!

    Yesterday there was another thread with a similar problem (https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2446898), this time with libjpeg-turbo8. The problem isn't actually with libpng, but with the way...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Passwords and upgrading/updating the OS

    There's only one password important to Ubuntu: your login password. If you loose it, it can't be recovered, but it can be reset: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword
    You may have seen that...
  8. Re: Looking for creative ways to reduce disk space occupied by system folders

    You've got 11GB in /usr, which is reasonable if you've installed a bunch of applications. 1GB of that is in /usr/local, which must be manually installed software. 3GB in /var is a bit much, but not...
  9. [lubuntu] Re: New to Lubuntu, question about docx and increasing size of things

    Many laptop/desktop users (like me) only backup their home directory (skipping things like cache and compiled stuff). I haven't customised my system a lot, so if it breaks and I can't fix it (never...

    [ubuntu] Re: dpkg : error encountered

    We had a very similar issue a short while back with libpng on 16.04. That problem wasn't really resolved and we concluded that in that case a fresh install would be best, as the system was in a...
  11. [lubuntu] Re: New to Lubuntu, question about docx and increasing size of things

    How big is your not-very-big Lubuntu partition? If it's at least 20GB, that should be enough for OS plus applications. A separate partition for applications complicates matters, so don't. Anyway,...
  12. [lubuntu] Re: New to Lubuntu, question about docx and increasing size of things

    An installer for Ubuntu typically means that they offer a .deb file that integrates nicely with the official Ubuntu repositories. Lubuntu uses the official Ubuntu repositories, so that should work....
  13. [lubuntu] Re: New to Lubuntu, question about docx and increasing size of things

    Exporting to docx is supported, but it's recommended to save it for yourself in a native file format. I don't think I ever encountered any university teacher who wanted MS office format (or any other...

    [ubuntu] Re: how to install ".install" file?

    File extensions don't really signify anything in Ubuntu. Many files have an extension, but they are for humans and some applications. My guess is that your .install file is a shell script that you...
  15. Re: Why is my computer impossible to turn off with multiple users?

    "Switch user" allows a new user to log in without logging the previous user out. The session of the previous user stays locked and can be resumed later, when the second user has logged out. It can be...

    Re: Enable indicator via shell ?

    Do you realise that Ubuntu Mate 16.04 has reached end of life? Of 16.04, only regular Ubuntu still has 9 months of support left. The flavours only had 3 years of support. Yes, I know it's not easy to...
  17. Re: libpng packages broken and resist being fixed!?!

    A fresh install of Ubuntu is the quick and easy solution. It takes about an hour (a bit more if you have to download the live disk over a slow connection). You will loose some arcane software, but a...

    Re: error:Broken count>0

    The package file got corrupted. Delete it from cache and try again:
    sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-modules-extra-5.4.0-40-generic_5.4.0-40.44_amd64.deb
    sudo apt install -f
  19. Re: Partition Confusion Help Me Identify Them

    I always try before installing, then start the installer from the live session. But it doesn't matter.

    The installer doesn't make things very difficult. If it detects your Ubuntu Budgie system, it...
  20. Re: using su when running from external hard drive

    What does that mean? It sounds like a bad idea.
  21. Re: Restoring Windows without ruining Ubuntu

    Starting 19.10 (or 18.04.4), the AMD drivers are included on a fresh install, not the nvidia drivers. Those can be installed from the official repositories, section "restricted", what you probably...
  22. Re: Partition Confusion Help Me Identify Them

    Yes. You don't really have to delete it first, as you can tell the installer to format it. Ubuntu Budgie will have put a bootloader in partition 1, but the installer should know how to handle that.
  23. Re: Partition Confusion Help Me Identify Them

    Partitions 2 and 4 are indeed Windows related. I don't know their exact functions. Partition 3 is your main Windows partition. That's where most of the system is stored, along with your documents.

    [SOLVED] Re: Upgrading from 18.04 to 20.04

    The upgrade process will be officially released with 20.04.1, but upgrading is already possible. Call it experimental, but it should be quite reliable by now. It's mainly so that people who like...

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrading from 18.04.4

    If it's Ubuntu 18.04, it will upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04. If it's Kubuntu 18.04, it will upgrade to Kubuntu 20.04. If it's a mix, it will upgrade to a mix. It shouldn't matter. But release upgrading...
