  1. [ubuntu] Re: Grub: start_image() returned Invalid Parameter (but still boots OK)

    No. It's just the one message, by itself, on the screen. It shows for just a second or two, then the normal Grub screen replaces it.

  2. [ubuntu] Re: Grub: start_image() returned Invalid Parameter (but still boots OK)

    Here we are:

  3. [ubuntu] Re: Grub: start_image() returned Invalid Parameter (but still boots OK)

    Thank you. The link is a little over my head, unfortunately. I wouldn't know where to start cleaning up UEFI folders, so I shan't do it lest I break Grub!
  4. [ubuntu] Grub: start_image() returned Invalid Parameter (but still boots OK)

    I'm curious about what this error message means, and if I should bother to do something about it.

    Installation


    When I installed, I chose to wipe the entire drive and replace it with Ubuntu...
  5. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    Some countries forbid this type of discrimination. And a number of European countries and the UK have a system where you don't even need insurance. I feel for you, having to worry about this sort of...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: How do I rip a DVD that contains audio, not video?

    Thanks. Makemkv is new to me. Curiously, although VLC recognised the DVD, Handbrake didn't.

  8. [SOLVED] Re: How do I rip a DVD that contains audio, not video?

    Thanks. I found, in the end, that just copying the .VOB file and renaming was sufficient. I'm not going to split the file into its six sections; I've just documented it instead. It would have been...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: How do I rip a DVD that contains audio, not video?

    Thanks. With some experimentation, all that it did was to copy the .VOB file across. I now realise that it contains the audio for all of the parts, one after the other.

    However, it's stored as a...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: How do I rip a DVD that contains audio, not video?

    It's not just audio files, no. It's in a format that a commercial DVD player (the kind that plugs into your TV) can play. As mentioned, it starts off like a normal DVD with a menu (audio CDs don't do...
  11. [SOLVED] How do I rip a DVD that contains audio, not video?

    I have an old DVD, but no DVD player.

    So, I've taken a very old computer with a DVD player in order to rip the DVD (I have permission from the copyright holder).

    About the DVD: When opening the...
  12. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    I shall do.
  13. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    Have you seen the state of democracy recently? The UK is ruled without room for dissent by a government that had only a third of the popular vote. Trump ruled the USA having won the fewest votes...
  14. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    I don't understand what privacy and "being a drone" (whatever that means) have to do with each other? But, talking about drones…

    Alas, look at how technology is progressing. It's inevitable that...
  15. Re: Chromium vs. Chromium - Snapping Intensifies

    I've just tried this with Lubuntu 21.04 in a VM, and I see what you mean!

    This must be Canonical's way of avoiding having to go through the process of updating its PPA all the time, which it would...
  16. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    Personally, I love snaps. I don't know what you mean by "the execution is off." If you mean that they're a bit slow, the initial run of a snap (after restarting the computer) is indeed a bit slow on...
  17. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    I have always found that sort of strategy hugely frustrating, whether it's Microsoft or another provider, whether it's hardware or software. It's a lock-out approach. That, to me, is the biggest...
  18. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    No. What they did was put an Amazon link that used Canonical as the referrer, so that Canonical would receive commission. That wasn't taken well, mostly (I believe) because of the approach that...
  19. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    Well, this is going to upset a lot of people. This is the start of what got MS in trouble with antitrust in the first place all those years ago!

    MS might decide to rescind this before releasing it...

    I don't know: I don't subscribe to Amazon Prime.

    Well, that's the purpose of my question. To find out what people think. If you're happy with Firefox, stick with it.

  22. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    That's a vehemently visceral reaction!
  23. [xubuntu] Re: chrome window too large when maximized

    Reminder to everyone with this problem: Remember to upvote ("star") the bug so that the devs take it seriously.
  24. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    I found it hard not to use Edge. Windows pushed it aggressively, and I had to turn it off repeatedly before I could use Chrome without hassle.
  25. [xubuntu] Re: chrome window too large when maximized

    I've added a comment there to cross-link this thread and to note the previously-noted bug.
