    Re: Wine and Scrivener Help :)

    The default wine prefix for Ubuntu exports your root filesystem to Z:\ for applications running in wine. Accordingly, your files should be in Z:\home\<your login name>. Do you see anything after...
  2. Re: Help... upgrade to 19.10 almost finished - power outage

    At this point, I think it is best to create a new Ubuntu installation medium (if you don't have one already) and reinstall. The following steps should guide you through recovery via graphical means:...

    Re: Warty Warthog 15 Years Celebration!

    Funny enough, you actually missed their best release (Windows 7). But as the saying goes, "and then it got worse".

    My last straw was unwanted updates rebooting my system in the middle of games...

    Re: Adobe Photoshop via Wine?

    Once upon a time, Google was paying engineers to prop Photoshop up to Platinum status in WINE.

    It looks like you may have luck running it via WINE but over all it looks pretty hit or miss...

    [ubuntu] Re: Random System Freeze Require Hard Reset

    I was thinking you could just have the system monitor open and watch the RAM utilization. It happening around a video clip would make sense, that's a pretty memory intensive area.

    There is a very...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: how can i make a program vs code by microsoft not to access the internet or limit

    Assuming there's no fallback logic for this, you could change its desktop launcher to instead launch a shell script.

    At the top of this shell script, you could put some bogus HTTP_PROXY and...

    [ubuntu] Re: Random System Freeze Require Hard Reset

    There's a kernel-level defect right now with the out of memory routines not being called when the memory levels hit around 90%. The most often times I've hit it are when running Virtualbox with...
  9. Re: Best way to share docs between desktop and laptop?

    I have an intel NUC I installed an ftp server on. Have the thing chrooted to a directory with that directory being write-only and the real ftp directory being a subdirectory (to protect against the...
  10. Re: King Draw Chemical Structure Editor for PC Won't Start

    Looks like it only requires 2D acceleration. It might work well enough to install VirtualBox and use the Windows 10 ISO image in it. If memory serves, the "free trial" without a license key never...

    Re: Can Viruses/Malware affect ubuntu?

    I mean yes, but that's true with running a web browser in root as well, given GNOME ships with a JavaScript runtime environment. Pointing out WINE for vulnerabilities that aren't much different from...

    Who manufactures the mouse? It's possible you just need the correct drivers.

    Re: Can Viruses/Malware affect ubuntu?

    For this one, this is a bit disingenuous. To get a virus in WINE, you would need to fall into a very, very special set of use cases:


    you ran a web browser or vulnerable, internet-facing program...

    Re: gVim load time 18 seconds?

    Might be inside of a snap. Try building from source from the website.


    sudo apt-get install build-essential && sudo apt-get build-dep vim

    before you go-go, and you'll be good

    Re: Warty Warthog 15 Years Celebration!

    Started with Ubuntu 6.06, Dapper Drake. Got recommended it on a BBS theming site back in the day.

    I probably would have been too young to appreciate 4.04 :)

    Re: Plant based "Meats". Your opinion?

    Well, that's what I was really concerned about. Since from nutritional labels, it's nigh impossible to tell if anything is all 9 of the proteins you need to function, as 'protein: 30g' could be 30g...

    [SOLVED] Re: Upgrade failed

    I think the most time-efficient option might be to go ahead and create a sizable partition on your disk and move stuff there. Install Ubuntu around it, and then edit /etc/fstab (on the newly...

    Hmm, interesting. If it couldn't find the bootstrap classloader, my thought is that the openjdk-8-jre package must not be properly packaged.
