  1. [ubuntu] Re: screen resolution stuck at 840x680

    There are no Nvidia drivers for your legacy chipset/iGPU.

    It either works with the default open-source nouveau or it doesn't.
    Standard Ubuntu (with Gnome) is definitely NOT recommended for such...
  2. Re: Cannot mount ntfs drives to anyone but root.

    The drives may need error correction and that can be achieved only with Windows tools.

    I second this suggestion.
  4. Re: No EFI System Partition was found


    Please do not revive old threads, open your own if you must. You don't, if you care to read this one and understand UEFI vs BIOS boot processes and consequently how to boot and...

    [kde] Re: KDE on Ubuntu 20.04 vanilla


    Maybe try installing 'kubuntu-desktop' instead?
  6. [ubuntu] Re: How do I get gnome as my desktop?


    Ubuntu 20.04 comes with Gnome by default. It has a modified look&fell though.

    If you want "vailla Gnome" instead you can follow this instructions:...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Gnome in 20.04 keeps blanking my screen after seconds

    #1 is plausible cause indeed, given the huge differences between those releases regarding the desktop environment.

    Re: Unity in Ubuntu Studio 20.04

    Yes, it is.
  9. [xubuntu] Re: Reinstalling Windows on dual boot system

    First of all, it's in the UEFI ("BIOS") settings > BOOT menu, not in any OS. And surely there aren't that many places where it could be that you miss it.

    But it can be managed by software tools...
  10. [xubuntu] Re: Reinstalling Windows on dual boot system

    Your summary report clearly shows all the required bootloaders for Windows and Ubuntu present in the ESP, as it should be.
    Furthermore, as expected. it shows the following boot order:

  11. [xubuntu] Re: Reinstalling Windows on dual boot system

    It's in the Boot menu or equivalent. Every firmware is different. Again, where you find "Windows bootloader manager" navigate to it and press Enter (or follow your firmware's specific instructions),...
  12. [xubuntu] Re: Reinstalling Windows on dual boot system

    Again, this is textbook example of the "not understanding UEFI" problem.
    In UEFI any OS is booted from the ESP (EFI System Partition) - the link above also explains this - no matter where any given...
  13. [xubuntu] Re: Reinstalling Windows on dual boot system

    Correct assumption for BIOS systems; totally incorrect for UEFI.
    Please check UEFI settings > Boot and where "Windows bootloader manager" is set it back to "Ubuntu". Then boot Ubuntu and run 'sudo...
  14. [xubuntu] Re: Reinstalling Windows on dual boot system

    Yes, but those UEFI machines that had the preinstalled Windows 7 in Legacy mode shouldn't count because that can and should be installed in UEFI mode. Why they were sold like this has to do with...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: I can't format texts in an email editor or a browser address bar. They disappear

    And although it's perfectly fine and laudable to do it with commands, all of that can be easily done graphically in system settings > users.

    No doubt you learned a valuable skill in your research...
  16. [xubuntu] Re: Reinstalling Windows on dual boot system

    That shouldn't be a problem at all in any modern UEFI system, hence my question.
    Most of the times is users not understanding how UEFI boot process works, not understanding that bootloaders co-exist...
  17. [xubuntu] Re: Reinstalling Windows on dual boot system

    Why would Windows do that? "Trashed Grub", I mean.

    What is your problem exactly?

    [ubuntu] Re: Weird process High RAM usage
  19. Re: My SDD is not booting anymore - Unable to access

    So the conclusion is the drive is faulty.
  20. [ubuntu] Re: 18.04 can't get ethernet share to work

    Probably a "bridge".
    It was a long time ago but I remember Unity having an easy to use setting for that. The same is missing in any Gnome based releases but I'm sure the same can be done with...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: does formating ssd drive really harms it?

    No, it definitely isn't saying that. And it's the opposite actually. Zeroing out a SSD drive is a full cycle of writing and any writing process wears out a tiny little bit of the drive. Not relevant...

    [kubuntu] Re: Flashing screen

    Without information about the hardware, namely graphics and type of monitor and connection, no idea.
    With that information, perhaps.
  23. [SOLVED] Re: does formating ssd drive really harms it?

    The terms are pretty standard and common to a vast range of brands/models. And you are certainly familiar with some of it or you wouldn't even try to boot something else. How would you know how to...
  24. [SOLVED] Re: does formating ssd drive really harms it?

    Now, regarding you original request that prompted all this back and forth for something that should be trivial, I understand why you want to zero out the drive before selling the computer. It's...
  25. [SOLVED] Re: does formating ssd drive really harms it?

    Yes, you should try to use the one-time boot menu if available (it usually is) or in UEFI settings use the boot override for the external media. If in any case you find two entries for the same stick...
