    This would not be a problem if it were only for your user data (i.e., your personal files in Documents, Pictures, etc.) However, also configuration data is stored there. 1) That configuration may...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: how to set environmental variable for share directory

    "/usr/local" would be a good place to install apps you compile yourself or install in another way outside of the APT package manage. In Ubuntu, it is by default setup in your PATH to override...

  4. [gnome] Re: Should I use gnome-shell-extensions which are not essential?

    It is your choice. Gnome Shell extensions are external software, not checked by the Ubuntu developers. The risks that may exist, are yours. These risks slightly decrease if you limit yourself to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Symlinks on the desktop don't work

    A .desktop file can also be put on the desktop to launch it from there.

    Re: Zim notebook questions

    To my understanding, the items in the right hand panel are only added manually.

    • You can create a page in the right panel by typing e.g. +Printers, then turning that into a link. The "+" will...
  10. [gnome] Re: filemanager-actions - multi-step / multiple commands

    Filemanager-actions is not anymore available in Ubuntu 21.04. So your investments may not be future proof. Nautilus scripts, however, continue to work and also works reasonably well in this user...

    [ubuntu] Re: Applications won't run

    I understand that you do not have error messages or warning when running an application that won't start from the terminal.

  15. Re: Login Loop-Possibly due to Root Partition Full

    The reason for a full / could also be temporary files: check also /tmp and /var/tmp. On the terminal, also do a "sudo apt clean" to remove cached installation debs. That may allow you to recover, but...

    Re: Touchpad hotkey toggle doesn't work

    Strange. IF the script runs well, it should run equally well from a shortcut. Can you activate the touchpad from a shortcut with only the command " xinput enable 13"?

    Just use the standard "Keyboard settings" under "Settings" to assign the script to a shortcut key.
