    I've upgraded from 18.04 LTS to 20.04 LTS on two machines in one step. Those were successful.

    Re: Dualboot WITHOUT Grub??

    If one drive is NVMe, and the other SATA, then I believe the boot loader location selector will work. The installer default for installing grub now is the ESP of an NVMe drive if there is one, but I...

    [SOLVED] Re: What AVIF viewers are there?

    The image options for saving in Manjaro's gthumb are the same as you show. To test, I tried "save as" with the image used in post #2, and this only works if I choose one of the supported save formats...

    Are you sure about gthumb?
    I downloaded a test image, and opened in gthumb (see cropped screenshot). The metadata shows it's HEIF/AVIF image.
    Yet, the gthumb version is:

  9. [ubuntu] Re: Tiny Firefox cursor after 21.10 upgrade?

    Actually, from the user point of view, I think we are missing things by choosing Wayland. I use Xorg because some applications I use don't work with Wayland - xscreensaver and plank are two examples...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Tiny Firefox cursor after 21.10 upgrade?

    Try login with "Ubuntu on Xorg" option instead of "Ubuntu". The "Ubuntu" choice starts the Wayland display manager. Does this make a difference?

    Yes, Firefox Snap cannot manage extensions. Neither can Chromium Snap
    1 - Install the .deb version of Firefox. As far as I know, it's still in the Ubnutu repository. It can exist...
  12. Re: How to understand or How to check whether o software is 32 or 64 bit

    As you have seen, ldd will identify libraries such as: => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ (0xb7688000)
    but that's only half the job - you also need to identify what package...
  13. Re: Stuck in Busybox because sda6 can't mount

    Is this a new install, or have you been using this OS previously?
    If it's a new install, you might have used /root instead of / when specifying a mount point. You also might have confused 'usr' for...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: copy paste files from desktop to nautilus/files ubuntu 21.10

    In my post #2, I was working with file manager windows. Now I see that is not what you meant here. I tried this again, using the file manager window only to do the paste of the file. It is exactly as...

  19. [ubuntu_studio] Re: 21.04: How to update apps in uStudio that aren't automatically updated

    My favorite way to move to latest stable releases is to use a Flatpak version. For darktable, it's available as a Flatpak. As time goes on, more and more applications are available as Flatpak.

  20. Re: Rapidly decreasing home free space available

    You'd have to move partition 4 and 5 to the left to adjoin partition 3. Then you could expand partition 5 to the right. gparted has a resize/move operation for partitions that may be what you are...

    Gimp as a Flatpak is only released as the latest stable version. If you had a beta of Gimp, it was the snap package which does offer non-stable channels.
    The Ubuntu repository as you said offers...

    I use the Flatpak version of Gimp. It's always the newest version. It's 2.10.28 right now.
