    It appears something went wrong when creating the live disk. Did you check the .iso for errors after download (can be skipped if downloaded via torrent)? How have you created the bootable disk? Your...

    Re: Using 10.04 now?

    On my current laptop (from 2011) I originally ran Ubuntu 10.04. It booted in 23 seconds. Now I run Xubuntu 20.04. It boots in 35 seconds. Slower, but acceptable.

    Who would a hacker care about your...
  4. Re: Package 'browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash' has no installation candidate

    You posted in New to Ubuntu, suggesting you're new. Ubuntu 20.10 hasn't been released yet, so new users are recommended to stay away. Actually, even after release, new users are recommended to stay...

  6. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    Most of it looks OK, but the line in your /etc/fstab for your swap partition is a bit weird. That may confuse the file manager, that's supposed to list the various filesystems except those listed in...

    [ubuntu] Re: Install Ubuntu outside the PC target

    Can you temporarily switch the host computer to legacy mode? Then switch it back to uefi when installation is done and you've taken the SSD out.

    Depending on your flavour, version and settings there may also be a pop-up or a notification in one panel or another.
  9. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    Re: Using 10.04 now?

    But I am bothered about your security. I don't want your computer to turn into a bot that participates in a DoS-attack on my favourite website.

    [lubuntu] Re: Lubuntu 20.04 not starting

    You've got a Lubuntu live disk, right? You can install boot-repair from the PPA in a live session. No need for that big 800MB bootable Boot-Repair disk. The PPA version is more up-to-date anyway.

  12. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    The EFI and root partitions shouldn't be listed as removable storage (but may be listed as such while in the live session). To get some data, try
    sudo blkid
    cat /etc/fstab
    findmnt
    Run those...

    There are two small problems in the first command:

    [lubuntu] Re: Lubuntu 20.04 not starting

    Can you access the grub menu? There are a few things you can try from there.

    First sudo asks for your own password before it will run adduser as root. Then adduser will ask for the password of the new user.
