  1. [SOLVED] In rEFInd, need 2 different OS icons for 2 instances of same OS

    SOLVED: See bottom of this post.


    I have an Ubuntu-MATE 20.04 LTS install (kernel 5.11.0) on an internal nvme0 drive.

    I have another MATE 20.04 install (kernel 5.4.0) on an internal SSD...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: How to fix text under icons that splits MID-WORD?

    I opened MATE Tweak -> Windows -> fonts and made sure all five font-types were set to "Ubuntu Regular" 15-point. That seems to have fixed the problem.
  3. [SOLVED] How to fix text under icons that splits MID-WORD?

    In the attached screenshot, you'll see that the text under two of my desktop folder-icons splits in the middle of a word, thusly:

  5. [SOLVED] New 20.04 install hangs on re-boot; can't reboot

    I have two new 20.04.3 installs (Ubuntu-MATE) on a newly built desktop workstation. One is on a 2.5-inch SSD, the other on an nvme SSD.

  6. [all variants] Re: NVME SSD firmware updates: Linux? WHAT'S THAT? WE ONLEE HAV 4 WINDOZE

    The way I see it there's no harm in trying. It's my only recourse anyway unless I want to toss my 2 new Sabrent drives and buy Samsungs.
  7. [all variants] Re: NVME SSD firmware updates: Linux? WHAT'S THAT? WE ONLEE HAV 4 WINDOZE

    > "LOL"

    So this speed increase with a fw update is unlikely? (Maybe it's the "dramatically" part that's unlikely.)
  8. [all variants] Re: NVME SSD firmware updates: Linux? WHAT'S THAT? WE ONLEE HAV 4 WINDOZE

    Thanks loads. I think the way to go for this is to get an nvme-drive enclosure, pull the nvme drive out of my box, put it in the enclosure, plug it into a Windows laptop and use the windows...

  10. [ubuntu_mate] Will System76 pre-install Ubuntu-MATE?

    If one were to buy a new System76 Thelio Desktop workstation (or any one of the units from its computer line), can it ship with Ubuntu-MATE as its pre-installed OS, if the buyer were to request...
  11. [ubuntu_mate] Re: 20.04 install will not shut down: "GPU lockup - switching to software fbcon"

    Just to note that I installed 20.04 on two separate external disks and both suffer from the same problem: upon shutdown they appear to close all running processes, but in both cases they leave the...

  13. [ubuntu_mate] Re: warning repeats after reboot & after the fix: "invalid backup GPT header"

    So even if you're holding the power button in for six or seven seconds? I thought that was a safe way to shut down. I've seen the REISUB before, I'll try that.

    Meanwhile I want to figure out the...

    Interesting update here, some good news with this drive, for a change: I installed the 20.04 UEFI/GPT disk internally with no other disk connected except the storage (MBR) disk that doesn't boot.

    What would you do with an SSD that presents the same gdisk error message

  17. [ubuntu_mate] Re: warning repeats after reboot & after the fix: "invalid backup GPT header"

    The other SanDisk Ultra II that I have is internal and it doesn't boot. It's used for storage only. It's MBR. There are no problems with it.

    I do have a 2nd external SanDisk Ultra II that I've...
