    Re: How to upgrade a package?

    @uRock: Are you sure ? Ubuntu package search says 19.10 comes with 0.8.1, 0.7.12 is the package in 19.04 ...

    @notooth1: Did you do a Release upgrade from 19.04 to 19.10 ? Unless the search results...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: 16.04: Alt+tab keyboard shortcut crashes system

    Have you tried switching to a virtual terminal when the GUI hangs ? When decrypting a large download, my system seems to hang to the point of the mouse pointer not moving and the clock in the...
  3. Re: Upgrade from a minimal install to a newer minimal install????

    Actually if the versions you quote are what you currently have, then I would wait for 20.04. Reason: you can update from one LTS to the next, so 18.04 -> 20.04 in one update is possible, put to go...
  4. Re: Trying to Compile Driver for Panda Wifi Adapter

    If the driver you're trying to compile is the one provided on the Panda wireless site, then I've got good news and bad news for you.

    Bad news first: that driver is from 2012 and meant for kernel...
  5. Re: Matrix Screensaver on Ubuntu Linux

    Do you mean a screensaver that simulates the 'Digital Rain' from the intro / credits sequences from the Matrix movie trilogy ? There's two of those in xscreensaver, named xmatrix and glmatrix. The...

    Re: Cannot Uninstall Mysql

    Wildcards like '*' are expanded by the shell to a list of the files in the current directory that fit. So if you're executing that command in a directory where there are files whose name begin with...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: a strange condition on X - is there a full display magnifier?

    As I wrote in #14:


    $ xrandr
    Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 16384 x 16384

  8. [ubuntu] Re: NordPy: An Open-Source Linux Client for NordVPN

    No, I haven't. But there's just one possible reason for that message if the file exists, AFAIK. The shell looks for executables only in directories that are in the (colon-separated) list stored in...
  9. [kubuntu] Re: how to install Express Scribe from tar.gz?

    OK, the good news first: the file is in ~/Downloads.

    The bad news: something is wrong with the file.

    'tar' only packs all the files together into one file and then uses another program to do...
  10. [ubuntu_studio] Re: Firefox doesn't fully display embedded twitter timelines

    Works just fine for me on XUbuntu 18.04 with ff 69.0.2 if I temporarily disable my adblocker which probably considers executing twitter-scripts as some kind of tracking (and of course I have to...
  11. [xubuntu] Re: xfce4 panel profiles backup/restore missing

    I don't know what happened to the button in 19.10, but the program for saving and restoring panel settings called by the button on 18.04 is /usr/bin/xfpanel-switch, a shell script calling a python...
  12. [kubuntu] Re: how to install Express Scribe from tar.gz?

    A .tar.gz is an archive-file. I don't know KUbuntu all that well, but I'm sure there's some kind of archive-manager installed that can unpack these in a graphical environment. That's probably the...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: a strange condition on X - is there a full display magnifier?

    You obviously need to substitute the outputs you've actually got for the ones used in examples. To find out what your outputs are called run xrandr without any options or parameters. This shows an...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: a strange condition on X - is there a full display magnifier?

    It defines the area reachable by panning. There's a lot more parameters you can give after '--panning', reading the manual page for xrandr will tell you more.

    And I'm not so sure about watching 4k...

    Re: pdf append, slice and index

    I am not quite certain what you mean by index entry. If you mean the text-entries in the outline-view in the side-bar of the pdf-viewer, then those have to be generated at the source in Libre Office....
  16. [SOLVED] Re: a strange condition on X - is there a full display magnifier?

    re. #7:
    AFAIK it should only affect the display it's connecting to, either set through the option '-d' or '--display' or taken from '$DISPLAY'.

    re. #8:
    I probably phrased that badly. '--fb'...

  18. [SOLVED] Re: a strange condition on X - is there a full display magnifier?

    That's already possible with xrandr with the --fb and --panning options. Example

    xrandr --output HDMI-0 --fb 3840x2160 --panning 3840x2160

    gives me a moving "window" of 1920x1080 (display...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Onscreen keyboard layout (default 19.04)

    I don't know which onscreen keyboard is used in mainline Ubuntu, but it probably isn't GOK since that was scheduled to join the dodo after Gnome 2. On XUbuntu - which I am using - it's a program...

    [SOLVED] Re: Alt + PrtScr + R, E, I, S, U, B

    The Alt-SysReq-R-E-I-S-U-B is hardwired into the kernel. If the System has frozen to the point where you need it, any program above kernel-level that's supposed to react to keystroke would be...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: how do I make my Flakpak Updater sleep for 10 seconds during startup?

    You could try changing the exec-line to

    Exec=lxterminal -e bash -c 'sleep 10s ; flatpak update && read -p "Press any key to continue"'
    (change in bold)

    [xubuntu] Re: which workspace am i in

    See the manual for wmctrl. 'wmctrl -l -p' has the PID of the process that owns a window as it's third column.

  23. [SOLVED] Re: I've been advised to "upgrade" from Ubuntu 18.10 to 18.04.3 LTS

    No, you can't downgrade without doing a new installation. Might still be the better alternative, an LTS gets 5 years of support (or three for flavours besides mainline and server) while non-LTS...

    [xubuntu] Re: which workspace am i in

    'wmctrl -l' gives a list of all windows the window manager is working with. Output is in at least four columns depending on options in use. First column is the id of the window, then the desktop...
  25. [SOLVED] Re: a strange condition on X - is there a full display magnifier?

    Yeah, it's a new(-ish) feature in XFCE 4.11 (or so), so it's been there for the last three or four years. Found out about it a few days after getting my first pair of reading glasses a few months...
