  1. [ubuntu] Re: Is this normal? Airplane mode toggle.

    No.

    Gnome got a lot less buggy after Ubuntu switched to it by default, but many of those fixes went into later releases rather than being backported. I don't know if that behaviour is one of the...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Trying to send audio to two audio cards at same time, I am confused.

    It's a while since I played with them, but PulseAudio's config files are pretty straightforward. Now that you've found the name of the option, it's just a case of adding that option to the file. I...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Trying to send audio to two audio cards at same time, I am confused.

    Not quite. By default each source goes to one sink. Not all sources need to go to the same sink, though.

    PulseAudio comes with the ability to create virtual output devices that do exactly what...
  4. [lxde] Re: Shell Script with curl works on terminal but not as menu launcher.

    You don't need to launch an additional terminal or shell. Just using Terminal=true is sufficient. You would need something to keep the terminal open so you can see the output.

    This works fine:

  6. [lubuntu] Re: 19.10 - Login Screen Icons Oddity for Root/Admin Account?

    These are both very bad ideas.

    Re: Smartd to check SSD Disk Health

    The short SMART test isn't comprehensive.

    Inconsistent data meaning that you're forced to run fsck, and failed SMART tests, certainly sounds like hard drive failure to me.
  8. Re: Bluetooth headphones only get low-quality audio profile

    It's not at the PulseAudio stage, it's at the Bluetooth pairing stage that the devices negotiate which profile to use. Because Bluetooth is low-bandwidth and the standard started a long time ago you...

    [ubuntu] Re: Using Ubuntu for work

    If you don't use Adobe Creative Cloud then it doesn't matter whether they make a version for Linux or not.

    Dell sell laptops with Ubuntu pre-installed if you want to use Linux for work without...
  10. Re: can I change flavours of Ubuntu, without starting from scratch?

    I would, yes.

    The use case of software developers are much different from the use cases of end users. I'm sure that person has some definite reason for preferring the latest-and-greatest.

  11. Re: can I change flavours of Ubuntu, without starting from scratch?

    LTS releases are best for home users unless they're running very new hardware. We've seen many cases of new users being stranded on the intermediate releases because they didn't realise that they...
  12. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    That is a perfectly healthy attitude. I broke a bunch of stuff in the beginning, too.



    It's not for the script, it's for the launcher that launches the script. As I mentioned earlier, that...
  13. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    It's definitely worth a shot. If you simply deleted that directory, and your backup contains that, then that's what your backup is for.
  14. Re: Choppy video playback of mobile phone video

    I haven't tried the snap version of mpv (in fact, I remove snapd from my systems so I never have any snaps) but snaps are restricted in where they can read or write to. That might be why mpv can't...
  15. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    For completeness:

    Gnome used to default to a standard drop-down menu for launching applications, and many desktop environments still do.

    Desktop files are agnostic ways of defining the...
  16. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    All your user settings are in /home (that's what it's for) so copying those back into a fresh install will make everything how it was. There are also commands for listing every package that you've...
  17. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    Actually, systemd turns it into a one-liner:


    pkexec systemctl reboot --boot-loader-entry=windows and you can easily configure polkit to allow the user to do only that action without a password....
  18. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    I mean that in your script you'd simply have
    /usr/sbin/grub-reboot 2
  19. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    You already know how to do that:



    When specifying the full path to grub-reboot rather than having the shell expand it for you the syntax doesn't change. You've apparently already established...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Is this laptop hardware compatible with Ubuntu?

    Windows doesn't have that; Ubuntu does. The manufacturers support Windows, not the other way round. It's a crucial distinction. Uncommon/oddball hardware gets supported under Linux when someone has...
  21. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    Again, orthogonal to the answers you've had about the permissions side of things, both of these are simple to solve. If you have a launcher that runs your script, which is sensible, running it in a...
  22. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    For clarity, TheFu's (sensible) suggestion is orthogonal to the actual function.

    /root is the root user's Home directory, and will be on the same partition as / even if /home is on a different...
  23. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    The last part is trivial once there's a command and permissions that work. Launchers to run a command when you click on them are just .desktop files - simple text files.
  24. [xubuntu] Re: Resource use of KDE apps running on XFCE

    You are correct the the files sitting on your hard drive will only take up hard drive space. The libraries provided by those packages, but only the ones that are needed to run Okular (or whichever...
  25. Re: Struggeling with users and passwords.

    If one of the accounts you remember the password for has sudo privileges it's pretty straightforward. Otherwise it's a bit more fiddly.

    In the first case you'd log in with your sudo-able user and...
