    Re: Sometimes, Kubuntu just doesn't boot

    It really sounds like a firmware issue to me. Check with Levono for updates.

    I have an Nvidia RTX 2080 in my desktop PC that does more or less the same thing. Nvidia says it needs a vbios...

    If controlled rebooting breaks your Ubuntu, your Ubuntu is already broken.
  4. Re: New Seperate M.2 SSD for Windows 10 Pro install Help

    Converting an MBR storage device to GPT style partitioning will "erase" the device as all of the existing partitions will be removed.

    I put "erase" in quotes because all of the data is still...

    Take a look at VueScan. It's payware, but there's a free trial so you can at least see if it can drive the scanner and then decide.

    Personally I think VueScan is best scanner front-end available...

  9. Re: Why is a package manager not preinstalled?

    Apt is the baseline package manager and is installed by default.

    The repositories you add are not included by default for the reasons listed in the repo description. This is a explicit decision...

    Re: Timeshift backup question

    Timeshift is designed to backup only the working system, not the user data files. It's not really backup as most people understand it and should not be used as such.

    OTOH, it's damned handy for...

    Re: login loop new install

    Did you by any chance select the option to login automatically on start (user doesn't have to explicitly log in) during installation?

    If I try that I end up with a login loop.

    Don't do that. Time to restore from your backups since there's no way to tell exactly what very necessary bits Bleachbit removed.
