  1. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 18.04.4 default installation -> cannot switch user

    My bad. I didn't read your initial post thoroughly. I now understand your issue.

    You do indeed have sufficient RAM. This should not be the problem. I'm afraid that I'm of little help here. I have...

    Re: Direct support for Ubuntu Budgie?

    So you need just one additional user. Therefore, the last part of my previous post is overkill. Your situation is much simpler:

    :shock:
    I've been using plain apt for years now. On dozens of machines if I include the virtual sort. Never a problem. Have I just been lucky?

    Re: Direct support for Ubuntu Budgie?

    It seems to me that you are breaking up your users a bit much. Do you really need to switch users for these tasks?

    In Windows, one is often advised to switch from admin to a different user for...

    Re: Direct support for Ubuntu Budgie?

    Budgie is an excellent flavour (they all are). To not have to do this again, try to keep your base install as close to default as possible. That means don't add PPAs or many apps or customizations to...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 18.04.4 default installation -> cannot switch user

    Welcome to the forums. rory4ever,

    Cheese is already installed if you are running a standard Ubuntu Bionic setup. Don't know about Xubuntu though. It's available in the repos in any case.

    Not sure if the whole thing is open source or just some components. For unrestricted FOSS video-chat/conferencing, consider Jitsi or Jami. Jami in particular is a GNU project. They don't come any...

    Hi kc1di,

    Though it's not an easy install, I've been able to get valuable old apps to run in older versions of WINE by running them within a LXD container. In my case, an old Windows game that...
