  3. Re: can I change flavours of Ubuntu, without starting from scratch?

    OK, I installed the Flatpak of Kolourpaint and find I can save/load a file to/from a USB or another partition. Also just looks a lot nicer than the Snap version, and uses the user's selected cursor...
  4. Re: can I change flavours of Ubuntu, without starting from scratch?

    Gimp, Inkscape, and gthumb fit well with Ubuntu. Have you looked into those? I have all three installed, and they meet all my needs for graphics software.

    Kolourpaint also has a flatpak version...
  5. Re: how do I ensure that I install a NON-Snap version of an application (Thunderbird)

    This only works if the snap has the necessary plug. Chromium has the plug, as output in post #25 shows, but for kolourpaint the connect command fails because it doesn't have that plug:

    Just changing the Firefox theme might help. Many show a difference in the active tab that makes it easy to pick out. See attached screenshot of Adwaita Arc Firefox theme.

  13. Re: how do I ensure that I install a NON-Snap version of an application (Thunderbird)

    If you mount a partition somewhere in your home folder, I believe there's no problem. You can open & save under /media/<user> and /mnt - at least that works from Chromium and Firefox snaps*.

    Wow. That's interesting. Change noted.


    You need to mount those HDDs in a supported location for snaps. With Chromium, things have evolved. I have been using the Chromium snap for a long while,...
  15. Re: how do I ensure that I install a NON-Snap version of an application (Thunderbird)

    Neither Synaptic Package Manager nor Apt can install a snap package, so you are "safe" using those. In Ubuntu Software, check the details of any package to see the source (see attachment, which is...
