  1. [SOLVED] Re: 19.10: Messed up a config file, how to recreate it?

    It doesn't even need to be as elaborate as being part of your backup regime. Copy the file to configfile.blah.backup before you edit it. If everything goes pear-shaped, copy it back. You can even do...

    [SOLVED] Re: CPUID or Linux equivalent

    Conky tells me everything I want to know about how my computer's doing, at a glance. It just draws on the desktop and you can make it show whatever you want, or look however you want.

    Re: Adding USB devices in Ubuntu

    Leave the things that you leave plugged in plugged in. The things that you only use sometimes you should plug in when you want to use them. You don't need to add anything.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: 'System program problem detected' popup in Ubuntu 18.04

    One thing to be aware of is that the system is supposed to ask you to upload a report about the crash and then not bother you again. Sometimes it doesn't manage to do the latter: it keeps asking...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Is there a good desktop zoom feature for Ubuntu 18.04?

    Compiz - a window manager - worked OK as a drop-in replacement for Metacity, Gnome's old window manager. It doesn't work so well as a drop-in for Mutter, Gnome's new window manager, since that's...
  6. Re: Shortcuts for program that is run by a terminal

    If anaconda-navigator isn't in your $PATH, you may have to specify the full path to launch it. You may also need to specify Path= to set the working directory to whatever your application uses.

  7. Re: NVIDIA driver installed many times but system keeps reverting to llvmpipe

    There are three different methods detailed on that page. You haven't said what you actually did.

    Venting isn't going to contribute to getting help. We're just other Ubuntu users here, like you.

    The launchers on the desktop, panels, menus, docks, or whatever, are .desktop files, which are just text files with a particular structure. Using Terminal=true should open your normal terminal...

    Re: Recovering my old files under Kubuntu

    You should run 64-bit. 32-bit install images are no longer available, and 32-bit software is being phased out.

    The OS and most applications will be OK in 2 GB RAM, provided you don't run many...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Cannot get my monitor over 1024x768 with intel igpu over display port

    The issue is that your monitor isn't providing EDID, which is how resolutions and timings are automatically detected. That might be related to the GSync, or it might be coincidental.

    Without EDID...

    You can boot from a live USB and mount your partitions to do maintenance on them.

    Re: Recovering my old files under Kubuntu

    It's easiest when you're doing a fresh install (like now!). During the install you choose Something Else, create your two partitions - a smallish one and a big one, usually - and set / as the mount...

    There are plenty of reports of that microphone working fine without any additional configuration. Make sure that whatever port you're plugging it into is able to provide sufficient power.

  19. Re: Ubuntu 18.04.4 with Nvidia gtx 1650 super

    The 1650 Super needs a driver from at least the 440 branch, which you can get from the graphics drivers PPA.

    "I did something and then it broke" is not at all useful in allowing people to help you.

    [SOLVED] Re: UEFI vs Grub - which one am i Using?

    You'll be using Grub either way.

    The distinction is between UEFI/GPT or BIOS/MBR.

    The simplest way is that the background of the Grub menu is purple if you're using BIOS and black if you're...

    You can't log in as root. You especially can't log in remotely as root. Log in as a normal user and then use sudo if you need to elevate your privileges temporarily.
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Boot directly to tty1 after removing KDE desktop

    When you do your fresh install, it might be worth trying out both Gnome and KDE (and any of the other Ubuntu flavours that take your interest) first, from a live USB. I personally find KDE much nicer...
