  1. Re: Are micro-SD to SD adapters active?

    I have seen adverts for MIcro card readers that plug into a USB port on a computer. I think that they are a kind of pass through connector.

  2. [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade left me with "Ubuntu Focal Fossa (development branch)" instead of LTS

    I have been running 20.04 development branch for most of its 26 weeks development period. At the right time it updated to 20.04 LTS. I can only guess that at some point you gave an instruction to...
  3. Re: No access to network mediaplayer with ubuntu 20.04

    Having only one machine I have never done what you are trying to do. The Ubuntu Desktop Guide has a section on Networking, web & email>Sharing>Browse files on a server or network share.

    ARM does not make computer chips. It designs them for whoever is willing to supply a specification and pay the price. Apple Corp have made great use of ARM designs. It follows that versions of Ubuntu...

  7. Re: Automatic login and screen saver

    How can that be true? In my experience a system restart is not that quick as the OS has to shut all kinds of services down and then trigger the motherboard boot process. It includes the Grub...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Pre-install questions from newbie!

    My experience of Microsoft Windows ended with Win98. My motherboard is a BIOS board so I have no personal experience of dual boot with Windows and UEFI and secure boot. I was around when Microsoft...

  10. Re: What's the rationale that Ubuntu now wants to install everything in a snap packag

    Ubuntu core does not have a desktop environment. A DE would have to be a snap to install on ubuntu core. An IoT device running one application would not need a full DE and may not have the RAM and...
  11. Re: Remove multiple clicks needed to shut down

    I agree with you. Power off; Log out & Suspend should all be available from the first drop down menu. If I remember correctly it used to be that way when we used Unity 7. Now, we have Gnome 3 shell...
  12. Re: Upgrading to 20.04 - Not enough free disk space

    Why are you using the -d switch? That will attempt to upgrade to Ubuntu 20.10 development version. Apart from that your root folder (sda2) is 98% full and your home folder (sda3) is 86% full. From...

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox blocks any site

    If the OS is indeed Ubuntu 11.04 then Firefox would be at version 3.6. That version of Firefox should load web sites coded with HTML 4 but many websites would have moved on from HTML 4 to HTML 5 and...

    Re: Aisleriot Broken

    I play the game that the application opens with (Canfield). It works as it should. I was not aware that there were so many alternative card games in that application.

  15. Re: First Impressions, one bug, and one suggestion

    Not here you are not but say that on a Gnome mailing list and you are liable to get thrown off it. Gnome developers do not like criticism. Ubuntu started out with Gnome Desktop Environment and it...
  16. Re: What's the rationale that Ubuntu now wants to install everything in a snap packag

    Are you sure? Systemd is Redhat software. Debian developers working for Redhat pushed for its inclusion into Debian. As Ubuntu is based on Debian we get SystemD in Ubuntu.

    Re: How to develop app in Linux?

    You asked a simple question but as you can see with Linux a simple answer is a rare thing. Freedom in Linux is the freedom to do things differently. And there is plenty of that kind of freedom.

    Re: How to develop app in Linux?

    Are you aware that there is Visual Studio for Linux? The Ubuntu 18.04 app store has two versions. Visual Studio Code & Visual Studio Insiders. I do not know what is different between them. Both are...

  23. Re: What's the rationale that Ubuntu now wants to install everything in a snap packag
