  1. [SOLVED] Re: Bugged default drivers for Radeon HD 6650M in 18.04 LTS. What to do next?

    That is one that I've seen mentioned. The other one I can recall is Padoka stable. It really depends on how new you end up needing.



    The odds of it bricking your install are essentially nil,...
  2. Re: Installing Ubuntu Studio On Blank Hard Drive

    Download the Ubuntu Studio install image.

    Burn it onto a USB drive or DVD.

    Boot from it.

    Follow the on screen instructions.
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Bugged default drivers for Radeon HD 6650M in 18.04 LTS. What to do next?

    fglrx is dead. It's definitely not worth trying to staple its corpse to your install.

    There are PPAs that provide newer versions of the Mesa stack. I haven't used them, so I couldn't recommend a...

    Re: Mir && Wayland ^^ Xorg

    Read the whole sentence, please.


    Mir is a Wayland compositor. Weston is a Wayland compositor. Clutter is a Wayland compositor. KWin is a Wayland compositor. Sway is a Wayland compositor.

    [ubuntu] Re: fan always working

    It really isn't.



    Your fan is controlled by your BIOS. You can generally change the profile of when it comes on there. Otherwise, you can use fancontrol to create your own profile. You'll also...

    Re: Mir && Wayland ^^ Xorg

    Wayland is a display protocol to replace X. The display server under Wayland is called a compositor. Mir is one of the Wayland compositors. Prior to Wayland taking off Mir was intended to be a...
  7. [xubuntu] Re: How do you reset your packages back to the original repos?

    Packages depend on packages, which depend on packages, and they all have to be the correct version. That's why PPAs exist, which contain all of those dependencies for packages newer than the ones in...
  8. Re: HDMI not responding, NVIDIA, Ubuntu 18.04.3 fresh install

    I haven't seen a BIOS upgrade that needed anything other than the new file in a decade; bung it on a USB drive, boot into BIOS, hit the upgrade button.
  9. [xubuntu] Re: How do you reset your packages back to the original repos?

    There's a tool that does exactly that, called ppa-purge. It removes the packages from the PPA, back to the versions from the repositories, and then removes the entries from your sources.list.

    [xubuntu] Re: Move Xubuntu 18.04 to new computer

    Good spot, you are correct. Conceptually to me that was all part of the bootloader that would be all spangly-new, but I should have specified. You'd end up with a new install with your existing...

    [ubuntu] Re: remove kernel 4.15?

    Yes.

    When you install a new kernel it keeps the old version too, just in case. When you've got a few of them, you'll be prompted to autoremove the oldest ones.

    When you install a new kernel...

    [xubuntu] Re: Move Xubuntu 18.04 to new computer

    I wouldn't personally do it that way.

    What I would do is do a fresh install on the new machine, and then replace the contents of the new machine's drive from the backups that you already have....

    Re: Passphrase

    A login password is extremely useful even if you don't encrypt your drives. It means that each user's stuff is private from other users, and neither an unauthorised user nor a nefarious process can...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Sound Control - "Settings" isn't keeping my device selection

    On the Configuration tab there should be a dropdown box for each device to set the profile. One of the profiles is "Off." That should work to disable all the devices that you don't want to use. If it...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Problem with external audio interface

    Have a look at that file. It sets options for PulseAudio.

    Lines that start with a ; are commented out, meaning they have no effect, and the default values are listed. man pulse-daemon.conf...

    Re: 20.04 - Best Ubuntu Ever?

    The strict answer is no.

    However the devs are going to prefer to avoid making breaking changes if they can, or at least to provide a migration tool, and other users have reported going through...

    Re: AMD Ryzen running Ub 18.04?

    Ryzen itself is great. The APUs (the integrated graphics part) didn't have the software in place before their release, which is why you'd want the newer stack. There was also an issue with the...

    There is, but it's terribly dull.



    Fingers crossed.

    Re: How to find passphrase

    I've never used filesystem encryption, but it's standard behaviour not to show anything when typing in a password to prevent leakage of the password length.

    Re: AMD Ryzen running Ub 18.04?

    Support for those wasn't ready in 18.04. Starting from a base of 18.04 and using the HWE kernel (or even newer), and a much newer Mesa stack from one of the PPAs that provide that, could work, but...
