    Downgrade - groovy to focal

    tl;dr: how to downgrade from groovy to focal?

    Long version: there were some bleeding edge versions of some packages I wanted to try, so I upgraded from focal to groovy. That was a big mistake, as...

    Background: I have to send computer to repair, they will wipe the disk and install some other OS to perform tests.

    Therefore, as the title says, I'd like to backup a whole disk - not a partition,...

    [kde] 4K screens and DPI

    Plasma-desktop INSISTS in increasing the scaling of my 4K up to God knows how many DPI, instead of the standard 96 dpi. This seems to happen just in my new installation of Ubuntu 20.04, and never...

    Re: KDE - Wrong Font Sizes

    Either that or my computer is acting up for personal reasons; it probably dislikes my new haircut. I knew that it was a mistake!
    Jokes aside: of course it is a configuration file or a package (or an...

    Re: KDE - Wrong Font Sizes

    I guess you did not understand my comment. You cannot have a different font type/size for root and for users with your solution.


    Regardless, there is no reason why modifying the settings with...

    Re: KDE - Wrong Font Sizes

    I fixed it by installing qt4-qtconfig and then setting the font value in there. There is still some conflict going on somewhere though. Modifying the font size in qtconfig ruins the colour...

    Re: KDE - Wrong Font Sizes

    I just tested KMix (which is also a part of KDE4) and it also misbehaves with respect to font size, but not colours, icons and etc.

    I am running Ubuntu-16.04 with KDE (plasma-desktop package, not kubuntu-desktop).
    I have other DEs installed too, but I'm worried only about KDE now.

    I'd guess that the discrepancies between...

    Many years have gone.

    I still haven't figured out how to disable TMPFS. There are 2347895023498256093487523 explanations on how to do that with systemd but I can't find any for upstart.

    Re: Why can't I stop swapping?!?!

    I will when it gets filled again, I just rebooted.
    What would be a "Filesystem: none" ? My /run/lock, shm, user and /syst/fs/cgroup are all mounted as "none", and only /run as TMPFS.
