  10. [ubuntu] Re: Drive 2 is under media and is treated as a removable drive

    Your filemanager can mount whatever filesystem it finds and will do so in /media. It treats removable filesystems and internal ones in the same way. The solution is to make an entry for this second...

    [SOLVED] Re: Upgrade to 21.10

    We get threads about this every 6 months. It's normal that it takes up to two weeks before the upgrade is released. Sometimes longer.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Keep recieving "Sorry, try again" message when entering password

    I understand you're doing this on a remote Ubuntu server, from a Windows 10 client. The password you need is your password on the server. It has nothing to do with anything you did to your Windows 10...

    Re: Text on websites is too light to read

    I wouldn't expect ttf-mscorefonts-installer to make a difference. I've never had that installed and never had any such problems with Firefox.

    [SOLVED] Re: Can't boot into system!

    It only appears to detect one hard drive, sda, which appears to be a live disk on a 128GB Lexar USB Flash Drive, according to line 77. So no internal hard drive is detected. Loose cable maybe?

    Re: Ubuntu 20.04 Skipping Windows

    Boot-Repair can create a boot info summary, giving you a link to share on the forums. Can you give us that link? That will give some more information.

    Best is not install the bells and whistles in the first place. Use a lighter desktop environment (like the one you get in Lubuntu) or install no desktop environment at all, just a window manager. Or...
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Change all home Ubuntu folders path in a NTFS partition to share them with Window

    The reason why it didn't work, was that after rebooting the Windows partition wasn't mounted, so the directories the XDG_*_DIR pointed to didn't exist.

    Best to use /etc/fstab to mount your Windows...
