    [lubuntu] Re: Anomaly after upgrading Lubuntu...

    focal-updates is not in the software sources. focal-security is there, so you get the important security updates (including the 5.11 kernel), but not the less important updates. The release number...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: How to make storage HDD auto mounted on each reboot

    Some tools may have been confused as you created the filesystem directly on the drive, not in a partition.

    [lubuntu] Re: Anomaly after upgrading Lubuntu...

    May I pop in as well?

    It may be good to see your software sources. That is, the contents of your file /etc/apt/sources.list and of the directory /etc/apt/sources.list.d. If there are any files in...
  4. [ubuntu_studio] Re: how to paster commands into the terminal

    I've never heard of ctrl+p to paste. Normally that's print, but that may be different on non-qwerty keyboards. Paste is usually ctrl+v. In the terminal however, those simple ctrl+<letter> combos are...
  5. Re: why isn't my ubuntu rendering my game

    I don't know about minecraft, but it may help if you told us:
    - how you installed minecraft;
    - what graphics hardware is in your computer;
    - whether you installed any proprietary graphics drivers...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Lenovo not support any form of dual boot or change to OS

    Maybe Lenovo's customer service desk doesn't support Linux, but that doesn't mean you can't run Ubuntu on a Lenovo laptop. Usually it works very well. Lenovo is actually one of the better brands in...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Install Ubuntu in SSD while keeping my files in my HDD

    No, not if you're careful, but it's easy to make a mistake. Furthermore, I assume the HDD is currently formatted as an NTFS partition, which is the native Windows filesystem. Ubuntu can read and...
  8. Re: Help Please - an upgrade from yakkety to bionic is not supported by this tool

    The last upgrade for 16.10 was provided in July 2017, so that's over 4 years ago. The only direct upgrade from 16.10 that was ever supported was to 17.04, as 16.10 reached end of life before the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Snaps & root memory

    The snaps are actually stored in /var/lib/snapd/snaps. The disk usage you see in /snap is fake. So to check:
    du -hs /var/lib/snapd/snaps
    Logs aren't wiped on reboot, so you may have accumulated...

    Re: Error 503 on wget

    503 (Service Unavailable) is a server error. It's unrelated to any action of yours, like sending too many requests, which would give error code 429. That is, assuming that the maintainer of the...
  11. Re: Every user must run a specific program with another user, by default

    Hardlinks only work for ordinary files, not for directories. The filesystem actually supports hardlinked directories, but the OS doesn't like it. Most applications will be happy with symlinks too....
  12. Re: Every user must run a specific program with another user, by default

    To make program dosbox run as user DOS, what matters is that the executable is owned by user DOS and its setUID bit has been set. Note that the setUID bit is ignored on shell scripts, as that poses a...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade Ubuntu 18.04 to 20.04 ... short report

    Normally, the OS doesn't interfere with the installed application software, other than installing bugfixes. But a release upgrade is the exception. The new release of Ubuntu comes with new software...
  14. Re: How is Ubuntu performance on external SSD vs internal SSD?

    For programming you only really need a text editor to edit source code. You can do that on a 30 year old computer with a floppy drive just as well as on a modern computer with internal SSD. Running...

    [SOLVED] Re: minimize

    That would depend on the theme settings of your window manager. Maybe something went wrong, triggering some strange setting or resetting to defaults. See if you can tweak those settings.

    [ubuntu] Re: Editing Files

    I think the default editor here is nano. I use vim. You can use the EDITOR environment variable to set it to any text editor you like. The editor itself doesn't run as root, so there are none of the...

  18. Re: Need help setting up resolution/drivers on a work-related Ubuntu USB drive

    Is this a live usb or a full install to a usb drive? On a live system you can't install the nvidia drivers. Or at least not activate them. On a full install the admin can install proprietary nvidia...

    Having said that, most hardware just works. Wifi and nvidia graphics may take some effort to get working. I read...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Problem with Google Chrome in Ubuntu 21.10

    One thing you could try is to run Chrome from a terminal. You may get a useful error message when it crashes. Is there any chance that you may be running out of memory?
  21. [ubuntu] Re: I get an 'update has failed' notification - when it has actually worked

    There are several not-so-clean lines in your sources.list:
    Line 6: focal should be impish, but as this line is commented out, that doesn't really matter.
    Line 11: focal-updates should be...

    [ubuntu] Re: ~ key does not work on bepo layout

    I assume you're using this layout: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%C3%89PO
    That appears to be a pretty exotic layout, making bugs more likely, but if offered by Ubuntu, I would expect it to work.

    Re: Command issue

    So, what do you expect?

    I see a * in the first argument, so it seems you want some filename globbing. Look up how it works. Then you use some remote network location for the destination. I don't...
  24. Re: Systemd Corruption While Ubuntu 20.04 to 20.10 Upgrade!

    With 20.10 dead already, an upgrade from 20.04 to 20.10 doesn't make sense. It should have been offered when 20.10 was still alive (if you configured to system to notify you of every release...
