  1. Re: Ubuntu 20.04 focal fossa release boot issue

    Can you use the grub menu to boot an older kernel? Does that work, as a temporary workaround?
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade from 20.04.1 to 20.04.2 Graphics Issue

    The 5.8 kernel was properly installed, so that's not the issue. Maybe a later upgrade to the 5.8 kernel fixes it. But when upgrading to the kernels used by 21.04, 21.10 and 22.04 3 months after those...
  3. Re: Can write to NTFS data partition, can't to Windows OS partition

    You can use the findmnt command to get the mount options of that partition.

    BTW, I never use chmod 777. I may have used it once or twice when I was a complete beginner.

    Re: Linux unistalled needed packages

    You had a package (I think it was lubuntu-desktop) that's there to automatically install a full Lubuntu desktop environment. It triggers automatic installation of both pcmanfm and libreoffice. Then...
  5. Re: Can write to NTFS data partition, can't to Windows OS partition

    Indeed, better not write to the Windows OS partition, unless you want to fix Windows and really know what you're doing.

    If you want to understand the issue, how do you mount the Windows partition?

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade from 20.04.1 to 20.04.2 Graphics Issue

    You switched from using the proper graphics driver to software rendering, which explains the poor performance. This may be the result of a kernel upgrade, but shouldn't happen. Centainly not with...

    [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 21.04 partition table

    Uefi or bios/legacy? Mbr or gpt partitioning? If the computer is from later than 2012, uefi is recommended. Dell computers tend to be well-behaved, even for the older uefi models. If uefi, you should...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Unable to instal Ubuntu on WIndows 7 (Dual Boot)

    Chances are this problem appeared recently, when you attempted to create a partition for Ubuntu. Your partitioning tool tried to be clever by creating non-adjacent logical partitions. Sufficiently...
  10. Re: Similar text editing apps to windows notepad

    It depends. When you write your own software to process the table, plain text is much easier to parse than whatever spreadsheet format you may decide to use. And once you have more than a few...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Unable to instal Ubuntu on WIndows 7 (Dual Boot)

    I've been looking at your google drive document (I think it's easier to copy text from the terminal to your forum posts and attatch screenshots), and there's something very weird about your...
  12. Re: Avoiding snap with Ubuntu 16.04 ESM sudo ua attach?

    If you really want to use chromium and really don't want a snap, you can install a chromium deb from a PPA. There are some available. Or maybe a flatpak, if you don't mind those.
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Seek text editor that can autotype specific text

    I don't use gvim, but I use regular vim in a terminal. I think there are some differences. In particular, everything that gets interpreted by the window manager or the terminal isn't passed on to...
  14. Re: Similar text editing apps to windows notepad

    There are many text editors for Ubuntu, but your problem is probably not with the editor, but with the font. The characters have different width on your Windows Notepad than on the text editor you...
  15. Re: Where does the Signal snap application keep its configuration?

    Keep in mind that 16.04 is scheduled to reach end of life this month.

    Edit: From your other thread I see you already know.

    Re: Upgrade issue

    The upgrade from a supported Ubuntu release (if any) always goes to the next supported release, so from 20.04 it goes to 20.10. This will change when 20.10 reaches end of life in July. To get to...

    source.list is a file with standard software sources. source.list.d is a directory with additional source lists.

    [SOLVED] Re: upgrade from 20.04.2

    An upgrade directly from 20.04 to 21.04 is expected to be available once 20.10 reaches end of life. Right now the upgrade from 20.04 leads to 20.10. The upgrade from 20.10 to 21.04 is not yet...

    It's normal (and has been for years) that the upgrade path from one Ubuntu version to the next gets opened between 3 and 15 days after release of that next version. Except for LTS to LTS upgrades,...

    Re: Number of Packages to upgrade?

    I guess it has to do with phased updates. I read somewhere that starting on 21.04 that also applies to apt, instead of just the upgrade manager. There must be a way to opt out or force a particular...

    Re: Problem to boot Ubuntu 20.04.

    That message is fairly common and indicates no error. It's supposed to be hidden by the splash screen, but that doesn't work very well. Failure to boot in a reasonable time is of course a problem.
  25. [ubuntu] Re: Latest updates making my screen flicker all the time

    Booting an older kernel is'nt particularly dangerous, so no need for extra backups, but it's always good to have backups.

    Bugs can be reported in software packages. The kernel is a software...
