  1. [ubuntu] Re: How do I get Ubuntu installed on its own partition

    Ubuntu can't be installed in a Windows partition, which is what NTFS is. If you first delete that /dev/sda5, the install alongside option will probably do what you want. You can also use something...
  2. Re: Permissions for external harddrives usb

    It depends on how you mount them and what filesystems they use. I'm not so familiar with network drives from Windows. Can you tell us?

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade killed Wi-Fi

    Do you know what package was upgraded? Check the logs if you don't remember.

  8. [kubuntu] Re: Original Windows installation to avoid warranty being voided

    It doesn't make sense that wiping the original software from a computer voids warranty on the hardware, but swapping the harddrive does not. But then, big enterprises aren't exactly known for being...

    [SOLVED] Re: How can I make the upgrade work

    Usually release upgrades just work. If they don't, there's some underlying issue, that's hard to diagnose and fix. Even if you manage to get the upgrade installed, the underlying issue may still be...

    [ubuntu] Re: Very basic Linux permisison issue

    I doubt changing the owner of /media to something other than root is the best solution to any problem. /media contains nothing other than mountpoints for other devices. One can change ownership there...
  13. Re: Oh where do I begin, hope someone has some time :)

    This sounds very confused. I can't give you any solid suggestions based on that. What do you want to do with that computer? Can you be more specific about the hardware?

    [SOLVED] Re: Disable Grub

    Grub can't be disabled, but the menu can be skipped. And if you only install one OS, the installer is supposed to confige grub to skip the menu. That in turn can be a problem, as it makes it harder...
  17. [lubuntu] Re: Upgrade from 18 LTS to 20 LTS - lost config

    Besides Ubuntu and Lubuntu there are more flavours. Ubuntu Mate and Xubuntu are lighter than Ubuntu, but are GTK-based, not Qt. Maybe you should try one of those.
