    Re: how to use ubuntu desktop without console?

    Don't fool yourself about Windows. It has a vast registry, cmd line and programming built-in. The millions of end users don't need those things at all. I agree with you that Ubuntu needs robust...

    EasyOS installs to a boot partition. I don't think it will boot from a directory which is normal for puppy. Normally frugal install just means that the directory that contains the puppy also...
  4. Re: Enjoying Puppy Linux after many years on frugal install of Fossapup64 9.5

    I know Puppy runs in RAM, which means it has come of age, since today RAM is cheap and plentiful and I have RAM that has never been used. Regarding frugal, I prefer to use a save file that allows me...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Kernel 5.13 broke my Ubuntu 21.10 on RPI4 8Gb

    The kernel 5.13.0-16 in Proposed will crash. -14 is working ok for me. If you have a separate Home partition you can reformat root on reinstall and all of your installed applications will come back...

    Re: ubuntu update not working properly

    I get the point of this thread but an additional consideration is that a linux reboot doesn't take very long either. It doesn't hurt to reboot after one of those fast updates due to a phenomena...

    Re: No more snap for me.

    Post #4 sounds right to me. I have three laptops, one on 21.04 and two on 21.10. Snapd is installed and active on all three. I do all of my system management at the command line and my snapd list is...

    If you are using Ubuntu 21.04 Gnome is 3.38. If you are using Ubuntu 21.10 Gnome 40.2 is part of the Ubuntu Development series and GTK is not yet fully supporting Gnome 40.
    Bottom line is Gnome 40...
  12. Re: Why do some of the most established programs have poor documentation?

    +1 post #13

    The instructions are plentiful.
    The understand'ers are few.

    If all else fails, follow the instructions. (and keep an install disk nearby.)
  13. Re: Why do some of the most established programs have poor documentation?

    I've started using Ubuntu OS with Karmic Koala and from the beginning I have used the development version of Ubuntu as my primary OS. I used Puppy Linux for at least a year before that. I have...
