  1. Bodhi 5 And Nvidia 6150se Graphics

    I have finally found a Ubuntu-18-based distro that works for these rather ancient on-board graphics, which I am now using due to my video card dying. Previously, I could only get Ubuntu-16-based...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    Last night I downloaded Grub Customizer, in an effort to spruce up Linux Lite's bland looking grub (most of them are). but it didn't seem to work. The picture I chose was not there when I booted up....
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    The only way I can get both U-16 and Lite 3.8 to boot is to have Lite be the Grub 0wner. If I have Ubuntu be the owner, Lite won't boot. not a big deal, except the Ubuntu grub is a lot prettier, with...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    I'm glad to hear that it is still maintained. I too vastly prefer it to Gnome. Wasn't sure how well it worked in >Ubuntu 16 systems. I wish Xubuntu, Lubuntu and Mubuntu had 5 year support. If so I'd...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    Thanks, I was not aware of that. It has helped me out many times, but now I'll use the live session version.

    the reason I got nervous about using it: the only time I was hacked (at least to my...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    If Resactux doesn't solve it, I'll use the boot repair disc to do what you suggested - post the info so smart people can figure it out (like you).https://ubuntuforums.org/images/icons/icon7.png
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    Thanks, guess I'm being overly cautious. I'm currently downloading Resactux to try and solve this. I tried using those terminal commands in the past with the boot repair disc, but got nowhere, so...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    You're right, I do have 16.04.7. I saw on the Grub menu that I now have two versions of 16.04.7, one on an old HDD, and the new one on the SSD.

    Which brings me to another problem. I can't boot...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    I'll have to give it a try. I know what you mean about putting alternative desktops on a system. I have indeed had issues, which ultimately forced me to reinstall, so I've decided against trying say,...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    Well I decided against getting another SSD, due to the fact that this computer is so old, and the video card and 450 Watt PSU both stopped working. I had to put the original 300W PSU back in. In...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    Interesting. Never heard of FVWM, but I just checked it out, maybe that's something to look into it. As for Unity, I must confess I'm a bit of a Luddite, given to living in the past to some extent....
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    I did get 304 working in a fresh 16.04.7 install. It had nouveau going by default. I knew from previous experience with 16.04 that switching to Nvidia 304 was going to be dicey, as pulling up the...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    More great info, thanks I appreciate it. As for the lens issue, my searches brought up a number of threads, many from here, but there seemed to be much conflicting info on the subject, and the...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    Thanks for all that great info. I have never installed a server version, as this is just for home use. A desktop is a must.
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    Thanks, but I want to stay with the 16.04.7 for security reasons. I still have Ubuntu 14.04, believe it or not, with extended security, good until 4.21. so when I saw 16.04.7 was out, it rekindled my...
  16. [SOLVED] Some questions before New Install Of 16.04.7

    I recently installed the new 16.04.7 on a HDD. It is performing flawlessly, using the Nvidia 304 driver this computer needs. I would now like to install it on a SSD. Some questions:

    First, how...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: New Release Of Ubuntu 16: Nvidia Driver Question

    Thanks, I appreciate the info. I'm a little confused, though. Which is the later kernel, 4.14 or 4.4? Logically it would be 4.4, but i'm not sure that's right. I have 4.1 something showing in grub as...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: New Release Of Ubuntu 16: Nvidia Driver Question

    Actually, the second time rebooted it threw me for a moment. It appeared to be on VGA graphics (everything way too big); and I could not login. also, got an error message. I booted into Recovery, and...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: New Release Of Ubuntu 16: Nvidia Driver Question

    SOLVED: I was able to open a terminal and pull up the Additional Drivers dialogue with "software-properties-gtk". I first had tried navigating to it via the launcher, but the screen froze. It didn't...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: New Release Of Ubuntu 16: Nvidia Driver Question

    I just remembered - I need the driver not just installed, but selected. I believe it is already installed with the system on 14 and 16, and you make the switch in Additional Drivers. But the problem...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: New Release Of Ubuntu 16: Nvidia Driver Question

    Thanks a bunch for that. Only thing is, I need specifically the 304 driver. anything later won't install on that mobo. And open source drivers won't work. but I can just install the 304 with the same...
  22. [SOLVED] New Release Of Ubuntu 16: Nvidia Driver Question

    I was excited to see that they released an updated Ubuntu 16 (16.04.7). I am currently running 14.04, as my 6150SE mobo requires the Nvidia 304 driver (I signed up for the extended support).

    My...

    Re: Linux Kernel 4.4

    Ah, xserver and xorg are part of the problem, I'm not surprised. While many Linuxers despise Nvidia, I have had far more problems with open source drivers.

    As to newer systems maybe working...
