  1. Re: How to list packages I have installed?

    Impavidus, I realize that Live Ubuntu has a different set of applications than a fresh installation. That shouldn't matter. Take GParted as an example. As you said, it's available on Live Ubuntu but...
  2. Re: How to list packages I have installed?

    I've tried impavidus's second suggestion (grepping from dpkg.log) so far, but the results do not make sense.

    To find out what has been added since installation I grepped the logs from my system...
  3. How to list packages I have installed?

    With emphasis on "I": what packages have I, and not a piece of software, installed?

    I want a list of packages I have installed on one system so I can duplicate my work on another system. The lists...
  4. Re: Crash resizing Ubuntu partition with GParted; advice?

    Today I restored the disk, shrank the Windows partition, deleted and recreated the shared data partition, and shrank the Ubuntu partition. I still need to move the Ubuntu partition, but I can't do...
  5. Crash resizing Ubuntu partition with GParted; advice?

    I've done a lot of partition wrangling in Windows, but this is my first time working with GParted and it's not treating me nicely.

    I'm trying to shrink the partitions on a 250 GB disk which...
  6. Re: New installation's GRUB booting to an old installation?

    I won't have time to do much with the sick system until next weekend -- maybe no time at all -- but I'll respond to the comments so far to see if we can move this forward a bit.

    You both said you...
  7. New installation's GRUB booting to an old installation?

    I'm having problems with a dual-boot installation of Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04. I'd like some assistance understanding what happened before I decide what to do next.

    I'm trying to recover from...
  8. Re: Cannot delete files in NTFS partitions

    Yancek, I appreciate your effort to be helpful, but you didn't read my message carefully. I know the cause of the problem and I explained it; it has nothing to do with hibernation. In any case I...
  9. Cannot delete files in NTFS partitions

    My system disk has an ext4 partition containing Ubuntu, an NTFS partition containing Windows, and an NTFS partition containing shared data. I backed it up and restored it using dd...conv=sparse....

    [ubuntu] Re: Cloning a disk to a smaller disk

    A few responses.

    I appreciate the suggestions of dd_rescure and fsarchive, but as I said in the OP, part of the idea here is to use only tools in the distro. If I need my own customized live...

    [ubuntu] Cloning a disk to a smaller disk

    I need a simple, reliable way to clone a disk to a smaller disk. Ideally it should work for both GPT and MBR drives, and should use only software on a Ubuntu 18.04 live disk.

    I'm thinking about...
  13. [ubuntu] Virt-sparsify first use... questions

    I'm not running a virtualized system, but I'm trying to use virt-sparsify and this seems to be the only place it's discussed. If there's a better place to post, please point.

  14. [ubuntu] How to interpret disks utility “SMART data & self-tests” results?

    Is there any comprehensive explanation of what the statistics in the report mean? I know about the balloons in the report displays, but many of them raise more questions than they answer.

    I'm...
  15. Re: Cloning a disk with Clonezilla: puzzles, problems?

    The two drives are exactly the same size. (I always clone to same-size drives.)

    I did not try to check-disk the problem partition. It's been about a week since I worked on the problem and I won't...
  16. Re: "Install third-party software for graphics..." option failed; why?

    I think it's extremely unlikely that I had actual disk errors. I scrubbed the drive shortly before using it, with no errors reported by Linux or START. Then I installed Windows 10, used it for a...
  17. Re: "Install third-party software for graphics..." option failed; why?

    When I visited this topic earlier only ajgreeny had replied, so this message responds only to that one. Thank you all for your comments, though.

    I tried removing nvidia* packages but did not...
  18. "Install third-party software for graphics..." option failed; why?

    I tried to install Ubunutu 18.04 last night. I've installed 16.04 many times, but this is only the second time with 18.04.

    I selected the "Install third-party software for graphics..." option,...

  22. [ubuntu] Re: "Exact" copy of a dual boot disk won't dual-boot

    Several suggestions here, and a really long answer seems necessary. I may or may not finish this tonight.

    Re: ISO help with Redo utility

    I decided to give Clonezilla another chance. This is what happened.

    I couldn't find my original Clonzilla CD, so I burned a new one. I used the ISO I downloaded last time, which I believe was...
