  1. Re: Creating link to website in a Gnome folder

    A sincere thanks ! But the fact that the Gnome team does not want people to have desktop icons I do find hilarious, since Gnome clearly allows folders to be created on the desktop through its GUI...

  6. Re: A tale of upgrading from 18.04 to 19.04

    Ubuntu does supply newer releases, even if those releases are not LTS. Even when I initially tried just installing 19.04 from the bootup DVD it should not really fail just because I choose to install...
  7. Ubuntu 19.04 create a link to URL

    Evidently in Ubuntu 19.04 it is no longer possible to drag a link from a web browser, such as Firefox, into a folder, so that when I double click the link the web page in my default web browser...
  8. Re: A tale of upgrading from 18.04 to 19.04

    It was otiginally 18.04 to 18.10 and then when 18.10 was no longer officially supported it was 18.04 to 19.04. Both were allowed at different times by the graphical upgrader in 18.04. Thanks for the...
  9. Re: Occasional OS problem, but no report in 19.04

    Re: Upgrading NVidia driver

    I am just trying to upgrade from 18.04 to 18.10 so that I can subsequently upgrade from 18.10 to 19.04. I am not interested in non-LTS releases. If Ubuntu offered a way to skip the non-LTS release...

    Re: Unable to upgrade to 18.10
