  1. Re: Twitter's new 280 character limit.

    I'm glad for the increase. I used to have to do a work around for it by typing in a text document what I wanted to say, screen shot the text, then insert it as a picture. Now I don't have to nearly...
  2. Re: 40 Linux USB security holes. That's not a typo.

    I believe I have an older kernel, 4.10- but that's because I've got 16.04.2 LTS and have not upgraded. But then again this issue occurs when someone plugs in a bad drive into the USB and I don't...
  3. Twitter's new 280 character limit.

    The new limit has gone permanent as of today.

    I'm so glad they made the limit bigger. I kept having to think of work arounds to tweet things and now it's easier to talk.

    What a relief. ...

  5. [SOLVED] Re: Need better video maker program than Pitivi....

    Perfect. I just tested it and it works great.

    Thanks everybody for the help. :)

    I'll mark this as solved.
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Need better video maker program than Pitivi....

    Update:

    Tested it out. The program was bad, putting static on top of audio, freezing, crashing. Can't use it. :(

    Any other ideas?
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Need better video maker program than Pitivi....

    This sounds like what I want. I'll try it and make a few videos and test it out.
  8. [SOLVED] Need better video maker program than Pitivi....

    Pitivi is ok, however it doesn't have enough features like I'd like. Is there a better one with more features? Please let me know, thanks.

    I have Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS 64 bit with Unity desktop.
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Is there a program to add taskbar/dock but keep Unity???

    Ok, installed it and its working out great. Just what I wanted. I didn't know I could run it inside Unity and have both!

    I'll mark this as solved.
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Is there a program to add taskbar/dock but keep Unity???

    Autostart cairo dock? I wonder how to do that using the terminal.......
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Is there a program to add taskbar/dock but keep Unity???

    If I could do both at once I'd take it. :/ I mean, I'd like to use Unity but have another dock running inside Unity (making myself more clear).
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Is there a program to add taskbar/dock but keep Unity???

    According to what I read it would replace Unity unless I misunderstood it.
  13. [SOLVED] Is there a program to add taskbar/dock but keep Unity???

    I have Ubuntu 16.04.2 64 bit with Unity.

    I'd like to know if there's a program where I can add a taskbar or dock but not rid Unity like Cairo Dock would do. I'd like to have both if that's...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    Update :

    Removing update manager solved this for me, that is for the reason why I made this thread. I'm using Synaptic instead.

    I don't know if marking it solved would be appropriate since the...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    Impavidus


    You know it seems to me I have a way to opt out of the phasing mentioned above if I simply ran Synaptic, wait 3 days, run it again and then install anything it finds, thereby bypassing...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    Phased updates? Interesting. I read the blog and it said this :



    I wished it said which file to add that too since there are several in that folder. Ho hum.... :?

    Interesting this process...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    That's funny. That last part above I wrote to mc4m was a separate post and now it's merged with the above post. Did a mod do it or is the forum messing up?
  18. [SOLVED] The purging idea sound interesting. I do have...

    The purging idea sound interesting. I do have synaptic as luck would have it.

    I've never used sketchy 3rd party repos but once, though rare, had a kernel update render my computer unusable - I...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    Well, it's too bad I can't get it to not let me know about updates when it has the option to set it to "never" auto check for updates. It's just not working! :( I'll just have to "kill process" on...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    Hmm.... a separate partition sounds good as far as location goes but I use Clonezilla and have 11 GB used up and for some reason Zilla takes 35 minutes to back it up...wait...I'm thinking of ReDo...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    Oh, I run a backup in 2 phases: 1) backup entire HDD right before running an update in case the update breaks the computer; 2) differential backup of desktop and Documents folders hourly and if...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    Well, it's now the next morning and that sucker reappeared. Stubborn like a bratty 3 year old kid! Ok then, I'll try the kill process idea and report back results.
  23. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    Oh. That would explain it finding kernel updates. I may have to kill process on update notifier then, like I mentioned above. Hopefully that would solve that sucker till a reboot & then I'll just...
  24. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    Another thing, why did it "automatically check for updates" anyway when I have it set to "never"? Maybe I need a separate thread for that question....
  25. [SOLVED] Re: How do I stop it reminding me it found updates? (ubuntu 16.04.2 Unity)

    Just a prediction here but I bet this won't work since I see "update notifier" listed as running in the System Monitor. I'll wait and see though.....

    If this keeps up, I think killing process on...
