  1. [xubuntu] Re: Black screen when starting No Man's Sky after update to Ubuntu 21.04

    https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=14048766#post14048766

    OP had this issue and decided to upgrade their kernel. They were shown how to do so on 20.04, but decided to upgrade to 21.04...
  2. [xubuntu] Re: Black screen when starting No Man's Sky after update to Ubuntu 21.04

    I mean, your initial probem was just your mouse speed, but

    the place to make a bug report about it would be here.
  3. [ubuntu] Re: How to have two matching ubuntu installations with the same set of installed pack

    There are lots of threads already that deal with including your list of installed packages with your backup so that you can restore them all later. This is no different, except you're "restoring" to...

    Re: Displaylink with UEFI

    The solution is to sign the driver modules yourself, and then to tell your UEFI that you trust your own signature. The signature is called a "Machine-Owner's Key," and the process is called...
  5. [xubuntu] Re: Black screen when starting No Man's Sky after update to Ubuntu 21.04

    Have you got Secure Boot enabled? That means that you'll only be able to use software that's signed.
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Grub "NOMODESET" question Ubuntu 21.04 Blinking Monitor on start

    nomodeset is a nuclear option; it's not a good choice for running permanently.

    It seems feasible that the times you're panicking about the blank screen, the system's just doing an automatic fsck,...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Replacement for Compiz Config Settings Manager in Ubuntu 20.04?

    Another option to consider is Pop OS' Cosmic or Kubuntu.
  8. Re: How do I reset the password in WSL2 in Ubuntu 20.4LTS?

    Ubuntu works fine with Secure Boot. The only caveat is that if you're using kernel modules that aren't signed by Canonical (VirtualBox and the Nvidia driver being prime candidates) then you need to...
  9. Re: Upgrading to 21.04 from Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS

    If you want the 21.04 kernel, just install the hwe-edge metapackage. That's the 5.11 branch. hwe is the 5.8 branch, the 20.10 version. hwe will get the hwe-edge version later. Ubuntu's LTS releases...

    [ubuntu] Re: Need help installing Ubuntu 21.04

    This is because you're using Secure Boot. If you don't want the hassle, just turn it off in your UEFI.

    The specific thing that's happening is that Secure Boot enforces that only software that's...

    [ubuntu] Re: Migrate from windows to ubuntu

    I'm guessing from context that you mean without formatting it. Yes, that's possible. Installing on the SSD will format that (obviously), but there's no reason why you'd need to format your other data...

    Re: Not a happy camper

    No, just different desktop environments. The Gnome devs developed a pathological aversion to users being able to customise things from Gnome 3 onwards.

    Cinnamon was created specifically to keep...
  14. Re: is there any workaround for Adobe Flash missing?

    No. The end of Flash was announced years ago, the specific date for the death of Flash was announced at least four years ago, and it was specifically killed on 31 December 2020, by which point every...
  15. Re: Steam and Proton Compatibility w/ 32 Bit

    Those games aren't available for Linux. Proton isn't enabled by default except for whitelisted games: you'd need to enable it yourself.

    For best results you're going to want to have Vulkan, which...

    Re: Incorrect detection of screen size?

    The computer only knows what the display tells it; your computer doesn't get out a tape measure. The mechanism for displays to advertise their capabilities is called EDID. Your display is lying in...
  17. Re: Steam and Proton Compatibility w/ 32 Bit

    It's not entirely clear, no.

    The last computers that are really 32-bit-only are ancient, and you wouldn't want to game on them.

    The last release of Ubuntu that provided 32-bit install images...

    [ubuntu] Re: Steam folder outside /home/

    You don't even need to go that far (although symlinks are fine - I used to do that when I had an HDD and an SSD so that I could put selected games on the faster smaller drive at will). Steam has its...
  20. Re: graphic card recommendations appreciated

    Wait.

    The semiconductor supply shortage drove prices up to absurd levels, even for really old and poorly-performing kit. It was complete madness.

    It depends what hardware monitoring hardware you've got. There was a brief time when CPUs would self-report their voltage, but the settings were too inaccurate and quirky so the capability got taken...

    [ubuntu] Re: Laptop beeps and shut down instantly

    My inclination would be that it's cracked solder somewhere.
