  1. Re: A dream of improvement. Can anyone implement it ?

    I really did like Brave other than limitations on "speed dial" as compared to Opera, but I encountered problems displaying images properly when shopping on Ebay.

    I tend to bounce from browser to...
  2. Re: Writable volume on live USB - must be a new thing?

    Yep, left that out - I do have an external SSD that boots either UEFI or MSDOS systems. It's a dream for repairing most 64 bit Linux systems or copying files from pretty much any OS. There are...
  3. Re: A dream of improvement. Can anyone implement it ?

    I see those a lot if I'm shopping on Amazon using Firefox. Best solution for me was to stop using Firefox. I did try various extensions and even editing config files but to no avail. I've gotten...
  4. Re: Writable volume on live USB - must be a new thing?

    Very informative. Many thanks. Now that I have less and less time to play I find all kinds of changes that catch me by surprise :)

    In that particular case I'd used that drive to perform several...
  5. Writable volume on live USB - must be a new thing?

    Quite some time ago Ubuntu's Startup Disk Creator quit working properly for creating newer live USB's of newer versions of Ubuntu in older installed Ubuntu operating systems. If you've been around...
  6. Re: Are any packages/apps available only via snap?

    I assume that both Kubuntu and Lubuntu would be the same? I did check the iso package manifests so I know snapd exists in both, in fact all flavors I believe. I'm almost certainly going QT based with...
  7. Re: Are any packages/apps available only via snap?

    I've been strongly considering QT based desktop environments - either Lubuntu or Kubuntu in this family - and I found one package that may be more appropriately installed via SNAP = Falkon. It's a...
  8. Re: Are any packages/apps available only via snap?

    I know the snap version of gnome-calculator was so incredibly slow in 18.04 I installed the .deb from the repos instead. I never followed up to see if it improved with bug fixes. I'm personally kind...
  9. Are any packages/apps available only via snap?

    Just as the title says, are any packages available via snap only in Ubuntu? If so is there a list of what they are?

    I've been asked by a few people to build them a "snap-free" Ubuntu, which seems...

    Re: Ubuntu is unstable and buged

    Sadly you don't even mention what exact hardware you're using or what version and flavor of Ubuntu you're using. I've personally found Focal (20.04) to be incredibly unstable running anything based...
  11. Re: What is your fav DE (desktop environment) or WM (window managers)

    +1! I actually liked GNOME just about up through the time Ubuntu GNOME folded back into Ubuntu (when Unity was abandoned) and since then it's just gotten worse and worse. There is no one big thing...
  12. Re: What is your fav DE (desktop environment) or WM (window managers)

    Currently KDE, but I can't say I love it. Now, antiX does a superb job with IceWM - enough so it truly is lovable. I do however wish I could strip out some of the unnecessary bits-n-pieces,...

    Re: Zoom security and privacy????????

    I installed using the .deb on Zoom's website which was shown being for 14.04 but it worked fine in 18.04. There was a pop-up allowing me to opt-out of some kind of "data sharing". I'll try it on...

    Re: Zoom security and privacy????????

    But it's the choice of the medical provider as to what platform they use. Of course you could say no and try to find a provider that uses a different platform, but for me that would mean severing a...

    Re: Zoom security and privacy????????

    I think the providers I've dealt with are taking into account the possibility of privacy flaws because they do not request the exchange of info like pharmacy names, phone numbers, or the like....

    Zoom security and privacy????????

    With the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting social distancing two of my medical providers have been conducting Zoom sessions rather than meeting in person. Seems reasonable enough to me. But I see...
  17. Re: what advantage will I have to install ubuntu over other OS?

    In deed! I have planned to move from gtk3 based flavors to either Lubuntu (LXQT) or Kubuntu sooner rather than later but that could potentially throw a wrench in the works.

    Re: important operative systems.

    Somewhere near the top one would need to mention Lindows which later became Linspire/Freespire. AFAIK that was the first time anyone really tried to make a desktop Linux OS truly compete with...

    [SOLVED] Re: Can Ubuntu be a Drop-in-Replacement?

    Both the old and new computers must boot in the same mode - older BIOS or UEFI. Other than that it'll typically work if you first remove any and all "additional drivers".

    Re: Ubuntu 18.04 update

    SuperGRUB2 now does provide UEFI support but must be booted in UEFI mode. Most of the puters I've fiddled with use F11 to display boot options and the UEFI boot menu will allow booting the optical...

    Re: Ubuntu 18.04 update

    I have not found a really great way of controlling this behavior on UEFI multi-boot systems. What happens is each time grub is updated the process "remembers" how and where grub was originally...

    Or maybe:

  23. Re: Unable to upgrade from 19.04 to 19.10

    If you'd copy-n-paste the full output from terminal of the command "sudo apt update" that would give us some idea what condition the repos are in. Then we could make a better guess.
  24. Re: Unable to upgrade from 19.04 to 19.10

    The "-d" suffix is only used for upgrading to a development version!

    Re: Canonical Ubuntu 20.04 Survey

    Thanks for that. I got pretty windy about a few things. My biggest gripe is GNOME Software Center. If I weren't so lazy I'd figure out how to kill it altogether as step one of every fresh install...
