  4. [xubuntu] Re: listing install packages in order installed

    This is no use unless you have always used synaptic as it does not show any "apt install" packages and I can't find any easy way to get that info from synaptic in the form of a txt file or similar.
  5. Re: Warning! The 195.86 GiB filesystem mounted at / has only 656.12 MiB of free disk

    I used to run a plexmediaserver but my /var/lib/plexmediaserver folder never went above about 4G; I note yours is 18G so you must have an absolutely enormous amount of media, presumably in those...

    How far back do you want to go?

  9. Re: is it true that ubuntu's updates are slower to be released than fedora's updates?

    Re: New to ubuntu

    It sounds as if you bought the Dell with Ubuntu already installed and if this is the case and you have not yet managed to start Ubuntu you should go back to the seller and get them to fix it.
