  1. [kubuntu] Re: running into multiple problems trying to get any version of ubuntu on an acer spi

    Hi there. GRUB is the boot loader: it is what you want to see after a successful install (it's what loads Linux, or Windows, or whatever you tell it to load once it's installed)...but it should just...
  2. Re: Ubuntu's main server vs my country of origin's server? What's the difference?

    Absolutely no difference in terms of the software installed: they're identical copies. The only advantage to local servers is that they're often a bit faster. It also helps spread the load on the...
  3. [Deepin] Re: Nvidia-xconfig update booting to blank screen new install 20.04

    OK, I wasn't able to test the Intel dual-display setup as my motherboard's only display output (apart from the standard VGA) is Displayport and I don't have a Displayport cable or Displayport-to-HDMI...
  4. [Deepin] Re: Nvidia-xconfig update booting to blank screen new install 20.04

    If it doesn't eventually launch your desktop, and you can't get far enough through the boot process to shift to another tty (e.g. hold down CTRL-ALT-F3 to shift to tty3) and login as root from...
  5. [Deepin] Re: Nvidia-xconfig update booting to blank screen new install 20.04

    Hi. If you created any custom configurations under /etc/X11 just shift them back out of there (move them to your home folder or wherever) and things should work again. One of the reasons Xorg...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Cannot see external usb hard drive Ubuntu 20.04 X64

    Yep, 10 lines by default...or if you want to see a few more, you can e.g.
    dmesg | tail -n 20to view the last 20 (same as for "head", which defaults to the first 10 lines but can dump as many or as...

    [lubuntu] Re: Nvidia driver install for old GPU

    Hi there. If it were only the kernel it would be possible, either by patching the driver to build or simply by downgrading the kernel (which would be very unwise, but still possible) as you can run...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Cannot see external usb hard drive Ubuntu 20.04 X64

    Wow, that's really useful to know. It won't be the issue in this case (as this is a FAT32 drive) but it's a potentially serious problem I'd never heard of. I'm surprised Windows doesn't just unmount...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Cannot see external usb hard drive Ubuntu 20.04 X64

    Yancek, does hibernating Windows really affect external drives? My understanding was that it would warn another OS not to boot the root partition (the one from which Windows boots), but external...

  12. Re: Help configure mouse acceleration on Ubuntu

    Hi. If the "adaptive" acceleration profile in gnome-tweaks doesn't give you something close enough to what you want, things could get tricky because GNOME seems to be overriding the other methods for...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Gigabyte Aorus Z490 motherboards and Ubuntu

    Hi there. I'm not running this (Ubuntu 20.04) system on it, but I have a Debian 10 system on a Gigabyte Z490 Vision D which looks (from an online comparison) to be very similar, with no problems at...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Image Viewer causes Xorg to eat up memory and crash the desktop environment.

    Great, I'm glad it was just EOG and not some more serious underlying issue. You shouldn't need swap, if you have a decent amount of RAM (8GB or more for a modern desktop)...although it does depend on...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Cannot see external usb hard drive Ubuntu 20.04 X64

    Yes, it's only the last few lines that matter: dmesg dumps *all* the kernel messages, so you're seeing a running commentary on everything hardware-related that's been happening since you booted...the...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Image Viewer causes Xorg to eat up memory and crash the desktop environment.

    Hi Alex...and wow, that's nasty! Firstly just so that you can view images without crashing your whole desktop, you could try a different image viewer to see if your issue's an EOG bug. Typing apt...

    Hi. Have you tried modprobe usbserial? Normally I'd have expected the usbserial module to load automatically when you plug in the related device, but maybe this isn't happening (unless you just...

    [ubuntu] Re: Thinkpad p15s mobile broadband

    Unfortunately the news on the Lenovo forums doesn't look good: according to posts on those forums, there simply isn't a Linux driver for the Fibocom L860-GL chipset yet...which means you can't (yet)...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Cannot see external usb hard drive Ubuntu 20.04 X64

    Hi Fred. Ubuntu has no trouble with FAT32, and the fact that you can see other (thumb) drives shows it's having no trouble with USB storage in general...so it's a strange issue. Are you sure the...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: How to Reset (not restart) NetworkManager to default settings?

    If you can't edit your networks through GNOME (on my XFCE desktop it's as easy as right-clicking on the networking panel indicator, choosing "edit connections"), you can edit them directly as text...
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Please suggest a photo edit program besides Gimp (for levels)

    In the post to which you linked above, you were advised against building your own copy of the older version of GIMP because "that'll be a hassle". Yes, if you're not used to building from source it...

    Re: App development

    Hi Johnny.

    The Android SDK lets you jump straight in with Java, if you know that already. If not, you might like to have a look at modern alternatives like Google's Dart and Flutter. These are...
  24. Re: Speaker Audio not working (Ubuntu 20.04)

    Hi Advait.

    You probably don't need to update anything: the fact that you're able to hear audio through the headphones suggests that the kernel has the necessary drivers to make use of your audio...

    Hi Printna.

    Unfortunately the photo of your console is largely illegible to me (it looks as though it must have been scrolling at the time, and the camera has blurred two frames of screen output...
