  1. [SOLVED] Re: 19.10 How to get a sensible font set (instead of Thai, Indian etc.)

    You may know this already, but you don't need to use the package manager to 'install' a font. There may be fonts you like that are not in the repository. All you do is put the font file into...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: 19.10 How to get a sensible font set (instead of Thai, Indian etc.)

    Font Manager does work on Lubuntu 19.10. I installed from Muon package manager and used it to disable (not remove) many LibreOffice Writer fonts. They now don't show up in the font chooser list....

    Re: Fanless mini PCs

    I would look for barebones computer models - no Windows installed. Those are most likely to suit Linux.

    Re: Auto Update Question

    PPAs can be deemed 'untrusted'. When adding a PPA to your sources, you will see, for example (from launchpad.net):

    So that might be the case.
  5. [SOLVED] Re: 19.10 How to get a sensible font set (instead of Thai, Indian etc.)

    You can install Font Manager.
    Choose "Manage" from upper left.
    Choose "All" in sidebar.
    In upper-right frame, uncheck those you don't want to see. This doesn't remove them, just disables them -...

    [SOLVED] Re: Dock - Better Active Tile Indication?

    The Dash to Dock extension includes configuration options for the active window indicators - various colors and shapes.
  8. Re: boot problems with multiple drives (boot-repair link included)

    The OS you are booting can be on a different disk entirely than the ESP's disk. That's illustrated in the first display of post #6.


    Some users (myself included) have an ESP, plus an operating...
  9. Re: boot problems with multiple drives (boot-repair link included)

    This is no longer true in all cases. If you have an NVMe drive and a SATA drive, Ubiquity will install grub boot loader to the ESP of the drive you select - sda or NVMe. I discovered this back in May...

    Re: Problem with dark GTK3 themes

    I believe the search box colors are either set by Firefox theme or by the web site itself, not gnome-shell. My search box has black text on white (the opposite of my gnome shell theme). Try different...
  11. Re: help moving linux boot partition to its own disk

    @oldfred;

    Things have changed: With NVMe and SATA drives present, Ubiquity now accepts the choice for installing boot loader to the ESP on sda or the NVMe drive. On my initial NVMe installation, I...

    Try using gdebi package installer. As I recall it showed specifically what is wrong if there are problems with dependencies or other conflicts.
  13. Re: Random Lubuntu PCManFM questions/feedback

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

    Not only the image, you can change the entire appearance of the login screen with different themes. See this posts #3,4,6 of this thead for more information on how.
  15. Re: can I change flavours of Ubuntu, without starting from scratch?

    OK, I installed the Flatpak of Kolourpaint and find I can save/load a file to/from a USB or another partition. Also just looks a lot nicer than the Snap version, and uses the user's selected cursor...
  16. Re: can I change flavours of Ubuntu, without starting from scratch?

    Gimp, Inkscape, and gthumb fit well with Ubuntu. Have you looked into those? I have all three installed, and they meet all my needs for graphics software.

    Kolourpaint also has a flatpak version...
  17. Re: how do I ensure that I install a NON-Snap version of an application (Thunderbird)

    This only works if the snap has the necessary plug. Chromium has the plug, as output in post #25 shows, but for kolourpaint the connect command fails because it doesn't have that plug:

    Just changing the Firefox theme might help. Many show a difference in the active tab that makes it easy to pick out. See attached screenshot of Adwaita Arc Firefox theme.

  25. Re: how do I ensure that I install a NON-Snap version of an application (Thunderbird)

    If you mount a partition somewhere in your home folder, I believe there's no problem. You can open & save under /media/<user> and /mnt - at least that works from Chromium and Firefox snaps*.
