  1. Re: Recovering my old files under Kubuntu

    You should run 64-bit. 32-bit install images are no longer available, and 32-bit software is being phased out.

    The OS and most applications will be OK in 2 GB RAM, provided you don't run many...
  2. Re: Cannot get my monitor over 1024x768 with intel igpu over display port

    The issue is that your monitor isn't providing EDID, which is how resolutions and timings are automatically detected. That might be related to the GSync, or it might be coincidental.

    Without EDID...

  4. Re: Recover disk space when NOTHING works

    You can boot from a live USB and mount your partitions to do maintenance on them.

    Your excess files are extremely unlikely to be related to your package manager in any way. Trash or tmp files from...

    [ubuntu] Re: System program problem detected

    The crash reports are stored in /var/crash if you want more insight into which application is crashing, and what information is sent. The system is supposed to only notify you once per crash, but...

    Re: Gimp, Latest Version

    You install and update software through a package manager. That will keep all of the software installed through the package manager - OS and applications - up to date. Adding a PPA gives an...
  7. Re: Recovering my old files under Kubuntu

    It's easiest when you're doing a fresh install (like now!). During the install you choose Something Else, create your two partitions - a smallish one and a big one, usually - and set / as the mount...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Problems with Rode NT USB micro on Ubuntu

    There are plenty of reports of that microphone working fine without any additional configuration. Make sure that whatever port you're plugging it into is able to provide sufficient power.
  9. Re: Running two apps in the same Wine session

    Wine works by creating pretend environments - pretend C:, pretend Windows - which are called prefixes. Each prefix is just a directory that holds the files and configuration. By default Wine uses...
  10. Re: Ubuntu 18.04.4 with Nvidia gtx 1650 super

    The 1650 Super needs a driver from at least the 440 branch, which you can get from the graphics drivers PPA.

    "I did something and then it broke" is not at all useful in allowing people to help you.

    [SOLVED] Re: longer desktop icon names

    I don't use Xfce, so I can't test it, but I'd imagine that
    style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
    XfdesktopIconView::ellipsize-icon-labels = 1

    }
    widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style...

    [SOLVED] Re: UEFI vs Grub - which one am i Using?

    You'll be using Grub either way.

    The distinction is between UEFI/GPT or BIOS/MBR.

    The simplest way is that the background of the Grub menu is purple if you're using BIOS and black if you're...

    Re: can't login with root

    You can't log in as root. You especially can't log in remotely as root. Log in as a normal user and then use sudo if you need to elevate your privileges temporarily.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Boot directly to tty1 after removing KDE desktop

    When you do your fresh install, it might be worth trying out both Gnome and KDE (and any of the other Ubuntu flavours that take your interest) first, from a live USB. I personally find KDE much nicer...
  16. Re: 18.04 LTS black screen after video card upgrade 4.15.0-50

    Good advice from Bashing- om.



    Three things:

    The latest 440 branch driver, 440.59, is definitely available from the graphics drivers PPA.

    You've downloaded some random thing off some...

    Re: slow boot after install

    That looks to me like a service is timing out; the default time to wait for things to properly start (or properly stop) is 90 seconds.

    As TheFu says, you can check logs and things to see if that's...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Boot directly to tty1 after removing KDE desktop

    No problem.

    20.04, the next Long Term Support release, will be released in April. If everything's working OK you can do a fresh install (rather than an upgrade) then for peace of mind that there...

    It is nice to know how things worked out. Thanks for letting us know. Glad it all worked out OK.
  20. Re: 18.04 LTS black screen after video card upgrade 4.15.0-50

    New cards need new drivers. You need at least the 430 branch to have support for the Turing Supers, ideally newer than that. You being on such an old kernel doesn't suggest that you were using the...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Boot directly to tty1 after removing KDE desktop

    For the two things you've mentioned,
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm3 should rerun the install scripts for GDM to get that back in good shape.

    [ubuntu] Re: Apps

    A higher version number doesn't mean that it's better, and it doesn't even mean that it's newer.

    A couple of months before each Ubuntu release (which are versioned by date) the packages that will...
  25. [ubuntu] Re: Boot directly to tty1 after removing KDE desktop

    You seem to have broken things quite thoroughly in your attempts to fix them.

    There are a lot of things - like the Plymouth theme, or the display manager - where you can have several installed but...
