  1. [ubuntu] Re: I can't install Ubuntu 21.04 on Acer laptop

    Have you verified the download is correct? Calculate the hash and compare it to the official source. How did you create the live usb? Creating one without persistence is more reliable. Have you...

    [SOLVED] Re: Can i install ubuntu to a new Disk?

    We all want our hard drives untouched and working forever, but the truth is that we accidentally touch them and sometimes they just break down. So it's best to have backups anyway.

  3. [ubuntu] Re: when writing in hebrew in Writer the period appears on the other side

    I've never tried writing anything right-to-left, so I'm speculating a bit here.

    LibreOffice supports bidirectional text. So you can write some English text (left to right), then some Hebrew text...
  4. Re: fail to start user manager for uid 120

    There is no /USR. I assume you're talking about /usr. Capitalisation matters.

    /usr must have permissions 755. With 774, normal users have no execute permission and cannot change to the directory...

    [xubuntu] Re: How do I change name of hard disk

    As this is an internal drive (i.e., it's always present), the best way would be to put it in your fstab. Basically, create an empty directory that will serve as a mountpoint. It doesn't matter what...

    [SOLVED] Re: / full 91%

    You used the filemanager to mount that filesystem. Now use du to analyse it:
    sudo du -xh --max-depth=2 /media/ubuntu-mate/35d5b79d-ae24-4c02-8d96-4ae452ed88d1I hope I copied that UUID correctly.

    [SOLVED] Re: / full 91%

    You can unmount the other filesystems so that no mountpoints within your root partition are in use, then search again. It may be easier to do so from a live disk.

    Interesting tool, never heard of...

    [SOLVED] Re: / full 91%

    gparted says it's full, but du doesn't see the files taking all that space. Could it be that some files are hiding underneath a mountpoint? We occasionally have people here who wrote their backups to...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Kernel version upgrade procedure.

    I was referring to 18.04.3 to 18.04.4, but kernel versions also increase occasionally when you regularly install your upgrades. They are completely unrelated, but both happen as a result of...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Kernel version upgrade procedure.

    1: As explained in post #3, nothing special to do. Just install the upgrades waiting for you:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgradeor some variation on that. If you really want some...
  11. Re: Help needed reverse upgrading from 20.10 to 20.04.3LTS

    The 5.11 kernel has been available on 20.04 since the release of 21.04 via the linux-generic-hwe-20.04-edge package. It was not available in the live session though.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Kernel version upgrade procedure.

    1: The standard kernel on Ubuntu 18.04 is 4.15, the HWE kernel is 5.4. The difference is that 5.4 is newer. It has better support for more recent hardware, but also has more bugs. Your choice. Both...
  13. Re: Lubuntu - root password at install time?

    I rarely use a root shell, but there's one case where you really need it. You can't cd into a directory where you have no execute permission.

    Further, if you have no read permission in the...
  14. Re: Lubuntu - root password at install time?

    That's because cd is a shell built-in. sudo doesn't work with those. Instead, use a root shell, for example with sudo -i.


    No password is set, so you can't login as root.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Kernel version upgrade procedure.

    1: Every LTS release of Ubuntu comes with 2 kernel lines: the standard kernel and the HWE kernel. You can switch from one to the other, if you like, and both are supported for the full support period...

    [ubuntu] Re: LibreOffice - can't insert image

    The error message suggests (but I have to say I rarely use libreoffice) that libreoffice doesn't know how to handle the image file format.

    Re: Swap partition/file in new install

    A swap file is easier to resize later, a swap partition is easier to share with a different OS install. Further, I think a swap partition is required if you want to use hibernation.
