    BTW trying to "upgrade out of a problem" almost never works. I speak from personal experience. If it's broke an upgrade will usually only make matters worse!
  3. [ubuntu] Re: I WAS HACKED WHILE UPGRADING TO 20.04! Suggestions needed!

    I would absolutely NOT upgrade that 16.04 PC until you have any other issue resolved! Ubuntu 16.04 is still supported until April, at which time you could even sign up for the free ESM:

    So if you logout and select flashback w/metacity and then log back in you actually get to the true flashback session? But if you then reboot you get the default Ubuntu/Gnome shell DE? That's a...

    It sounds like you're not using GNOME Flashback then. On this box I have flashback set up with one panel on the bottom and if I hold Alt and right click the panel I see this dialog:

  7. [ubuntu] Re: trying to update from 20.01.2 to 20.10

    First of all you need to know that 20.04 is supported until April 2025 but 20.10 is only supported until July 2021:

    Re: Add programs to top and bottom bars

    In GNOME Flashback you have to press Alt and right click on the panel to add things from the menu. Drag-n-drop doesn't work.

    No extensions are built to work with the flashback session!

    [SOLVED] Re: 20.04 Lock up

    I see you're using the nouveau graphics driver. You might want to try opening the Additional Drivers UI and installing the nVidia driver if it's offered there.

    [SOLVED] Re: 20.04 Lock up

    I'm rather curious how exactly you upgraded - 16.04 > 18.04 > 20.04? Or did you perform a fresh install?

    Regardless though I'm curious about the kernel version being used and what graphics card...

    It seems that GNOME (and especially Nautilus) now wants (maybe more accurate to say "demands") me to do things their way - the old "my way or the highway" approach. I worked in environments where...

    [all variants] Re: * no longer a wild card in apt?

    I'll have to experiment a bit with that. One recent project involved purging nvidia drivers from TTY but it took me a long time to figure out exactly what version and what the full package name was.

    Sweet! That brings the wildcard into play as I'd inquired about. Also shows available (uninstalled) packages as well.

    So being more specific here's one example. Let's say I wanted to search all packages (both installed and just available) that begin with "linux-generic". If I know the full package name I can:

    [all variants] * no longer a wild card in apt?

    I haven't found any documentation for this but it used to be you could use * as a wild card to search packages, or maybe I had a bad dream :D

    Anyway, if I'm right about the past, has that changed?...

  19. Re: System boots to flashing cursor with latest apt update

    No, it's not. The Ubuntu images have the HWE version of linux-generic installed by default. It only became apparent when the 5.8 series kernel rolled out. The other flavors are not effected:
