  1. Re: IDrive backup alternatives for Ubuntu?

    My only thought is if you have a spare machine, set it up like your problem machine. If it displays the same problem, let iDrive support remote into the new machine which should contain no personal...

    [ubuntu] Re: touch for desktops?

    I'm sure touch can be made to work on a desktop but why? You have to lift your hand to chest height and extend it every time you want to make an input. Using a pointing device like a mouse doesn't...
  3. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    I agree with you but with Firefox sync I can choose what to sync. Bookmarks? I don't see the issue there really. Passwords? Not a chance. Though there are passwords and then there are passwords. I've...
  4. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    I'm not sure Microsoft have any real incentive to change their behavior. They're making something like $165 million per day profit, though mostly thru Azure cloud services and Office as I understand...
  5. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    Firefox sync works well to sync browsers on different Ubuntu machines. I don't have a chromebook to check sync function there.

    Re: sane.d scanner and pdf size

    I have a similar problem which appears to be device related. I had a Brother MFC-6490CW for years which produced good quality small PDFs mostly using Gscan2pdf. I recently replaced that machine with...

    Re: When to Re-Install the OS?

    My primary install is 20.04 LTS. I'll probably leave it as-is until 24.04 has been out a few months. At that point I'll probably back up all my data and try an in-place upgrade if that's available...
  8. Re: Problems printing to Brother HL-L2300D (Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS)

    I have two Brother machines, both ethernet connected. I tend to use Brother's drivers, the automatically installed ones seem to often have niggles. I've had very good success with the Brother...
  9. Re: graphic card recommendations appreciated (old hardware)

    I'm not a gamer or high end video user so can't address the high performance cards. If I needed a video card for non-gaming use Ebay (in the US at least) has lots of Dell/AMD video card pulls...
  10. [kubuntu] Re: Formatting HD using Ext3 (for use with TV)

    That's a very good suggestion, especially for old drives.
  11. [ubuntu_studio] Re: Easy file transfer between Win 10 and Studio 21.04 - how ?

    I took a little different path to sharing files between computers. Most SOHO routers have the capability to mount a USB drive installed in the router's USB port. Kind of a light duty NAS.
  12. Re: How is ZFS coming in Ubuntu's development of it?

    Have you seen this?

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ZFS

    ZFS seems a bit of overkill for desktop systems. There is BTRFS which is supposed to offer some of the benefits of ZFS and can be chosen on...

    Re: Text on websites is too light to read

    Use the same procedure as you used to get the image shown above but do it with a problematic web page on the screen. It's typical to feel frustrated when starting with something unfamiliar. Hang in...
  14. Re: Ubuntu Bootloader installed on internal drive

    You should have been able to choose where it goes during the install process. It's been some time since I've done an install - LTS user - perhaps one must use the "something else" option when...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 20.04 Realtek 8821CE wi-fi does not work properly

    Hi Chili

    The device that deepakdeshp has looks a little bit different than what we're used to. I did a quick search, this looks like that product's web page.

    [SOLVED] Re: ethernet wont connect

    There was an issue with some RealTek ethernet drivers in 20.04 when it first came out. I had just purchased a new mother board that had a RealTek 8169H ethernet chip. RealTek 8169 had been supported...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Question about typing issue on Ubuntu and Wayland vs X.org

    Interesting. I've been using Wayland exclusively on 20.04 with no problem. I guess there's something in 21.04 that Wayland doesn't like.

    All very good advice. It can be handy to have a Windows install just in case. For instance I find myself having to use hardware that there is no foreseeable chance of its working with anything other...

    Re: Firefox Snap as Default in 21.10

    It would suck hugely for me if I couldn't install shell extensions. I just checked Vivaldi on 20.04 and it looks like I can install, delete and modify extensions there if Firefox chooses to be...

    Re: No more snap for me.

    Would something like that be popular for enterprise use? Or perhaps schools?
  21. Re: Which flavour and settings for an elderly person

    Your mother sounds much like my wife. Poor vision, some dexterity degradation. Mainline Ubuntu has some accessibility tweaks. Click the upper right corner of the screen then Settings -> Universal...
  22. Re: Just got my first Linux computer last night.......

    Yes it is. One of the differences between Windows and Ubuntu is that Ubuntu or any Linux distro responds to security issues by patching the underlying flaw rather than relying on antivirus and the...
  23. Re: Ubuntu 20.04.03 Ethernet adapter Wired cable unplugged

    I have an inexpensive TP-Link ethernet-USB adapter for just such occasions. I know it's plug and play. If the built-in ethernet port doesn't work I'll try the USB-ethernet adapter. If the USB adapter...
  24. Re: Just got my first Linux computer last night.......

    I would certainly make a USB installer for 20.04. Going thru the 14.04 -> 16.04 -> 18.04 -> 20.04 upgrades may work but I'd be prepared for glitches just in case. It really doesn't take long to do a...

    Brother MFC-J4535DW initial report
