    [ubuntu] Re: Is someone spying on me?

    Well, the OP does need an answer as to why the screen keeps doing that, and how to fix it. I wish that I knew the answer.
  2. Re: 18.04 how to preseed partman-crypto/passphrase values

    I'm sorry, I can't answer your question, but I've spotted what could be critical errors in your code: You aren't quoting your variables!

    Add single quotes around the variable here:

    [SOLVED] Re: Stuck in an upgrade loop...

    You need to complete the updates before your upgrade (as I believe you already know).

    Try these commands in order.

  4. [SOLVED] Re: Is possible use install packages from others distros ?

    … and the amount of memory. After loading apps like Chrome, Ubuntu doesn't fit within my system's RAM, whereas Lubuntu does.

    Man, I wish that I knew that years ago! My attempts at having multiple...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Is possible use install packages from others distros ?

    That's why we avoid those old ones. Stick to reputable and well-maintained systems. If I find an app that I want, but hasn't been maintained in six months or longer, I find an alternative.

    I love...

    Thank you for those ideas, @dragonfly41.

    That first one took me by surprise. I didn't realise that the government kept a list like that! It's long. I'll have to trawl through it!

    Thanks for all of that information, @TheFu.

    I'm brand new to Appimages. Looking at them, I see two problems:

  8. [ubuntu] What do you suggest for basic cloud storage to access as a web disk?

    I'm looking for a simple setup. I want cloud storage to access as a web disk, so that I can use it for backups (using either rsync or rdiff-backup). It would be like my local backups, only off-site....
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Is possible use install packages from others distros ?

    I didn't know that! I've been using snaps and flatpak for only a relatively short while, and so far I've had good results. On the other hand, I've been sticking to reputable apps such as GIMP and...

    Please would you use a better title than "Help me!!!!!". Titles help us to find threads where we have knowledge. An example title for this thread might be, "Installation doesn't complete, because...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Is possible use install packages from others distros ?

    First

    There is a newish system known as snap, and a competitor known as flatpak. Where possible, I'd recommend that you use snaps (preferred by Ubuntu) or flatpak. For example, GIMP, LibreOffice...
  12. [lubuntu] Does flatpak automatically update its packages?

    I've learning to use snaps and flatpak.

    Snaps are easy as can be, even easier than PPAs, and its manual is helpful. Flatpak… not so much. However, some packages (e.g. OpenShot) are available on...

    Yes, I love this forum.

    Some great quality answers are available in Ask Ubuntu, but this forum is always my first call.
  15. [all variants] Re: Is it possible to protect an app with a short code, e.g. a PIN?

    Thank you, EuclideanCoffee and TheFu. I'm not protecting any state secrets or dodgy activity here :) Just a normal password manager.

    I was hoping for something quite simple, but it looks like it...

    Is it possible to protect an app with a short code, e.g. a PIN, so that it won't open until the code is entered?

    I have a password manager (KeepassXC) that, once unlocked, sits in my taskbar. To...
  17. [ubuntu_mate] Re: So easy to break users password from recovery

    The very best way to avoid this mess is to encrypt your entire disk with LUKS.
    That way, no one can get in (not even recovery mode) until the disk is unlocked.

    Unfortunately…

    Canonical has not...

  19. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    That's interesting. Default Ubuntu updates automatically remove older kernels, so it should have been dealt with.
