    Re: Inkscape 1.0.1 in UbuntuStudio 20.04

    Very true, this.

    I was responding to OP's implied query that it might be necessary to populate his remaining memory slots with more RAM. In my opinion, this is an unnecessary expense and won't...

    32 Gigs?!

    Your RAM is not the problem then. Not unless you routinely manipulate gargantuan graphics like this one: https://www.spacetelescope.org/images/heic1502a/

    Even then, 32 GB will easily...

    Re: Suitable fonts for Persian / Farsi?

    Yes, it does make sense. My ignorance of the languages under discussion is obvious for all to see. I know that Arabic is cursive, but aside from the broadest generalities, I know little else.

  4. [lubuntu] Re: What is the [Meta] Key and how do I use it?

    Most of my meta shortcuts are available through the Alt key. Of course, some applications and their shortcuts that are tied to that key are legacy. They predate the subsequent evolution of keyboards...

    Re: USB drive not detected

    I suspect your drive is toast, or you should treat it as such anyway.

    Given its previous use, this would not be surprising. PVR use is really hard on a HDD. It's on 24/7 and is constantly writing...

    Between TheFu's thoughts and mine, you have multiple paths to a clean solution. I don't know why you are finding this so hard.

    Step‑by‑step then:


    Forget looking up domains or anything that you have received from them.
    Through a simple websearch, look up the company's main head office. **Phone them**.

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Graphical Problems: Possible hardware failure, but I don't know how to tell.

    I note that other forum members have responded to your first thread. In this case, I think it will be more fruitful for you if I merge the two threads together. Therefore, there's no need for you to...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Graphical Problems: Possible hardware failure, but I don't know how to tell.

    There is no Swiss Army Knife type of utility. The usual practice is to boot into a LiveUSB for an easy comparison. If the LiveUSB works without problems, then the problem is not hardware.

    @fairbird

    Please do not post using nonstandard styles and fonts. It is hard on the eyes and garbles anything within code boxes.

    Thread moved to General Help as the more appropriate forum.

    Re: Have you upgraded to 20.04?

    Because I help out on these forums, I must keep reasonably current. That's an unusual motivation for most folks.

    Re: Have you upgraded to 20.04?

    You anticipated my exact concerns. I'm always very hesitant about .debs for this reason. I'm also hesitant because updating now becomes a problem for other reasons.

    Re: Have you upgraded to 20.04?

    I'm unhappy with some of the changes to Chromium too. My workaround was to spin up a Bionic LXD container and run Chromium within that. Chromium was still a standard repo install in Bionic; not a...
