    Re: Problems installing Piper/LibRatbag

    Do you get any error messages that might point to the issue?

    As I recall, the versions of piper and libratbag are paired: for the version of Piper in the repositories you need the version of...

    Re: Password quits working

    To save you from barking up the wrong tree any more, this has nothing to do with your password, and nothing to do with logging in. Something (likely graphics driver related) is causing your desktop...

    Re: Problems installing Piper/LibRatbag

    So, last question first. Yes, if a package is included in the repositories, there is a way to install all of its build dependencies in one go. I can't remember the command off the top of my head,...
  4. Re: Test if a file extension is supplied for script

    As another thing to consider; whether a file contains JPEG data is actually unrelated to what its name is. It's only by convention that JPEG files' names end with jpg, or jpeg, or JPG, or...

    You...

    [lubuntu] Re: new PC MSI x470 MB

    You might be able to just spoof the browser's user agent string so that it thinks you're on Windows. Otherwise, if it's just one or two applications that you'd use Windows for, using a Virtual...

    [lubuntu] Re: new PC MSI x470 MB

    Were it my computer, and if I hadn't stopped using Windows 15 years ago, I'd put both OSes on the SSD and use the HDD for data, like media files and regular backups. I understand that Windows 10...
  7. Re: How much memory does ubuntu require?

    Not really.

    Sure, there are lightweight environments (or no environment) that mean you can run the OS in that little, but applications - and particularly web browsers - will eat that up in...

    Re: insufficient available bus power

    Did you change which port the keyboard was plugged into 1-2 months ago?
  9. Re: arm64, Ubuntu 14.04.6 LTS, Printer / Driver (ET-2650 not working)

    14.04 is End-of-Life. LTS releases get 5 years of support. You should upgrade to something that's supported.

    On the plus side, doing that might also sort out your printer issue: I understand that...
  10. Re: HD Audio not available to be picked from sound settings

    The kernel is just a package, the same as everything else, so normal package updates will include kernel updates. Updates to things that aren't the kernel won't generally cause you issues with...
  11. Re: HD Audio not available to be picked from sound settings

    This is your fundamental problem.

    It's why your Nvidia driver can't handle kernel updates, and it's potentially how you've messed up your sound.

    Ubuntu already comes with the ability to...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Is this normal one core of a i5 always at 65% and kworker always 18-19%

    I can't see the picture on my phone, but no, that's not "normal."

    Kworker means that it's a kernel worker thread, doing hardware access type things, and acpi means that it's motherboard hardware...

    Re: Grub2 Update Stops UEFI Dual Boot

    Your short-term fix is probably to turn off Secure Boot.

    I couldn't say whether your inability to boot from your live images is because you've removed the Secure Boot keys yourself, they've got...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: My 20.04 fresh installed ubuntu is totally slow

    Some small number of seconds. I rarely reboot, so I couldn't tell you exactly how many.

    The default timeout when starting/stopping services is 90 seconds, which I think is a bit long, but is...

    [lubuntu] Re: new PC MSI x470 MB

    We can't tell you what you should do. If you install Windows 10 on a hard drive it will be a lot slower than if it was installed on an SSD. How much that will bother you is something that only you...

    [lubuntu] Re: new PC MSI x470 MB

    CelticWarrior has correctly said that it's not something to worry about any more, but I'll also explain what the issue was.

    It's not that any drive "doesn't like temp files," it's that drives have...

    Re: How does this happen?

    Because essentially everyone is using 64-bit hardware, the 32-bit codebases aren't really maintained. The Spectre and Meltdown mitigations, for example, weren't ported to the 32-bit code.
  18. Re: Problems with ubuntu 20.04 graphics drivers

    That doesn't particularly sound like a graphics driver issue to me.

    If I were to hazard a guess, that sounds much more like out of RAM.

    Mine's an older model, so the one thing I'd prefer were different on mine - the 16:9 screen - they already changed for this year's model. Having the webcam at the bottom was also a questionable...

    Re: New Laptop Considerations

    From what you've said, it sounds like you're considering the XPS 13 developer edition. It's the same as the rest of the XPS 13s, just with Ubuntu. They need to call it something. It's an ultrabook...

    fglrx is most definitely dead. Why do you feel that you need to use a proprietary driver at all?

  24. [SOLVED] Re: Problem with choppy videos (youtube, vlc...)

    Browsers haven't had hardware accelerated video decoding until recently. If your CPU is weak it won't be able to keep up when doing it in software.
