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

    I would use
    aptitude search linux-generic which will return a list of matching packages and their installed status, followed by
    aptitude show <package name> if I wanted to know something...

    [ubuntu] Re: NVIDIA graphics driver gone

    sudo apt-get purge nvidia* libnvidia* should do it.



    Details of what those unmet dependencies are would be helpful; the 440 branch isn't the Legacy branch, but the problem might still have...

    [ubuntu] Re: NVIDIA graphics driver gone

    The 390 branch is the Legacy branch for no-longer-supported cards. Since you haven't said which release you're using, I'll assume you're on 20.04, are using the HWE stack, and have recently upgraded...

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

    AFAIK, the apt command has never taken the * character as a wildcard. The older apt-get does, though, so you might be thinking of that.
  6. [ubuntu_studio] Re: how to connect m-audio audiophile 24/96 to Jack Audio

    Not any more. Well, I still have it, but I don't have any machines with PCI slots.

    The 2496 worked out of the box, so to use it with JACK you just need to do the JACK things: start the JACK...

    [SOLVED] Re: Kernel 5.8.0-34-generic CRASHED

    The post CelticWarrior linked to gives the instructions.

    The metapackages don't install anything themselves: their function is to depend on the latest version of another package or group of...

    [SOLVED] Re: Kernel 5.8.0-34-generic CRASHED

    If you remove the HWE metapackages, it will stop giving you more new kernels, and the non-HWE metapackage will give you security updates to the 5.4 branch. As the kernel branch that came with the...

    Re: Ubuntu 20.04 video driver issues

    Yeah, there are essentially no circumstances where that's a good idea. I believe the installer script does come with an uninstall option, which should be able to undo the things it did. How effective...
  12. Re: upgraded to 20.04.1 LTS, ttf-mscorefonts-installer issues

    Kind of, but not really. Those fonts are old, and not the defaults in Windows any more as far as I'm aware. If someone's sent you a document that uses those specific old fonts, then your having those...

    It's not "a Linux thing," since .run files are used to bundle a script and binary data together, which is very much a not-Linux way of doing things. The Linux thing would be distributing the source...

    [SOLVED] Re: 20.04LTS uninstalling app

    Removing a package doesn't remove the per-user configuration files. Linux is a multiuser operating system. The person removing the package (who may well install it again) isn't necessarily the person...
  15. Re: upgraded to 20.04.1 LTS, ttf-mscorefonts-installer issues

    You don't need them for Wine. They'll be used if they're there, but other fonts with the same metrics exist and will be used otherwise. They were created for websites to use, but you don't need them...

  24. Re: Make work -- "screen ./scriptFile" to work at boot (whether rc.local, systemd, cr

    It's built into the shell. You aren't using a shell when you're launching processes with systemd.

    You want the path to screen, and the path to your script. Changing directory doesn't make a lot...
