    [SOLVED] Re: lightdm/dbus error with 16.04

    Amazing. I would never have gotten the idea of using update-rc.d for that.
    Instead, I would probably have looked for a way to start/restart /usr/bin/dbus-daemon, even though it wouldn't have been...

    [all variants] Re: Apt versus apt-get in Xenial

    In fact, apt is just a little more eye-candy :D

    So if you are on a slow machine, I'd strongly recommend to keep using apt-get because on slow...
  3. [xubuntu] Re: How to disable Wine for specific tasks?

    Best thing would be to find a CLEAN Windows virtual machine (i. e. not that friend's real one with the virus that's for sure :mrgreen:) and run HijackThis there to see what's going on. Virtual,...

    Yes, that's a good suggestion. And even before I can check it out:

  5. Re: I have problem in arabic language with libre office writer.

  6. [SOLVED] Re: 14.04.3 LTS + Radeon 3650 = monitor dies after 20 minutes

    First thing ever I would have done with such issues would be applying nomodeset to kernel options and THEN booting the kernel.

  9. Re: I have problem in arabic language with libre office writer.

    This report should be passed to the LibreOffice developers on their bugtracker.
    I don't think that anyone will have a magic recipe here to solve this. They have to fix that, for they're the only...

    Re: Kernel 4.4 RC (Release Candidate) series

    4.4.0 is a fantastic piece of work, and I hope it it will make it to main soon.
    All of 4.3.x were nothing to write home about, but 4.4.0 comes with lots of overdue fixes (see also changelog).

    [SOLVED] Re: After updates login now crashes

    There are many possible reasons for it: some more significant error in your .profile, and soon you may be finding yourself in a fix!

    Other than that...I've once managed to read the flashy message...

    [UbuntuGnome] Re: Gnome 3.18 update in main repository

    It's of no interest for me whether gedit is "in main", but only in what version!! Mateusz' link gives it away: no main version change for the time span of 4 releases! That IS ridiculous, period.

    Yeah, it's getting ridiculous!!

    I hope that at least for the next LTS release (in April 2016) Gedit will have been replaced by a more recent version - even in the vanilla installation.
