    [ubuntu] Re: Restart to update?

    No, that is a gnome-software thing. Update never followed by mandatory reboot if you use apt or one of its frontends (synaptic, muon) to update. On Fedora it is same, no mandatory reboot if use dnf...

    [ubuntu] Re: Restart to update?

    I know, but new users would not know these options. I think Windows (only pro and above) has some options to delay or schedule updates too but most people don't know it, but then I can be wrong since...
  3. [ubuntu_studio] Re: To Update VBox B4/after Upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 -or- Switch to KVM

    I think the version from the repo is a "community edition" which are missing some features, kind of like Chromium vs Chrome (Debian would not maintain "proprietary" stuff). When you download from...
  4. Re: How do I run Ubuntu from a flash drive?

    Because most people only use the live usb to try out and install Ubuntu, not as a 'real' system. You can even do a real installation on a usb drive (not as a liveusb) but in my experience the...
  5. Re: How do I run Ubuntu from a flash drive?

    You can create the flash drive with persistence. How to do it depends on the software you use to create the live usb. The option should be pretty visible.

    You don't need to export to .ova first if you use my command.
  7. [ubuntu_studio] Re: To Update VBox B4/after Upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 -or- Switch to KVM

    I could be wrong but AFAIK there is no working way to enable 3d acceleration for Windows guests without GPU passthrough. Probably the most straight forward thing you can do without passthrough is...
  8. [ubuntu_studio] Re: To Update VBox B4/after Upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 -or- Switch to KVM

    For first question I would update the OS first, besides, if you go the "upgrade" route (not recommended. a fresh install is much more problem free) you should remove all third party software and ppa...

    [ubuntu] Re: Restart to update?

    There is no snap, it has been purged. This is a gnome-software store (packagekit) thing, it exhibits the same behaviour in Fedora 34 where you won't find any snap. In fact I first noticed this when I...

    [ubuntu] Re: custom QEMU permissions

    So it is definitely due to apparmor .

    If I disable it or set libvirtd to complain mode then there is no permission error in virsh editing xml and I can start VM with my compiled version of qmeu...
  12. [ubuntu] how to set environmental variable for share directory

    I would like to install a game locally instead of installing into /usr or /usr/local since I don't like to litter the file system with pieces that I can't keep track of. Now I can use the PATH and...

    I think gamers make a lot of noises, but most computer users are not hard core gamers. Sooo...As for videos, Linux video players are very capable of hardware decoding. Both Firefox and chromium...

    sudo apt install ubuntu-unity-desktop compizconfig-settings-manager

    choose lightdm when the popup asks, reboot then you are back in unity. I am using Unity in 20.04, no problem whatsoever and a...
  15. [xubuntu] Re: Help installing jre8 over openjdk

    It works in openjdk
  16. [xubuntu] Re: Help installing jre8 over openjdk

    You can switch between different versions of java with update alternatives.

    BTW openjdk probably works and you don't need oracle java, have you tried running the app?
  17. Re: Upgrading to 21.04 from Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS

    It is actually very easy and reversible. Try the second way if you don't want to add any ppa. I wouldn't trade in a stable OS for a beta with only a lifespan of 9 months.

  19. [ubuntu] Re: Displaylink drivers not working

    You'd better start a new thread since it is not likely that anyone could help would check out a thread marked as solved.
  20. Re: Upgrading to 21.04 from Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS

    You can easily install a new kernel on Ubuntu 20.04 without upgrading your stable OS. I am running 5.11 on Ubuntu 20.04

    You can either get it from...

  22. [ubuntu] Re: [SOLVED] Call Java program from shell script

    If you are using unity why do you need it on the desktop? Just press the meta key you have all the app icons displayed in front of you just like icons on the desktop, besides, why would you want to...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Call Java program from shell script

    If you want to launch it from desktop you need a .desktop file to be placed in ~/.local/share/applications. then it will show up in your dash or menu depending on your DE, from there you can pin or...
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Call Java program from shell script

    You don't need the 'exec'. If you put the script in your PATH (e.g ~/.local/bin or ~/bin) then you can run by just typing its name.

    Also program.jar should not be in ~/.local/share/applications,...
