    [ubuntu] Re: Can Ubuntu be a Drop-in-Replacement?

    The only thing I've heard of when swapping hard drives is to be sure there are no user added drivers. For instance, if drivers from Nvidia were installed and active and the install were inserted into...

    Re: GNOME Ubuntu 19 poor battery life

    I make sure TLP is enabled on any notebook installs. Slimbook battery make serve the same functions, not sure.
  3. [SOLVED] Re: "No Wi-Fi Adapter Found" on ASUS X409FA-EK034T

    This is an internal adapter? If so could you show the results of this terminal command?


    You should see similar to this. This device is wired ethernet. You wireless device may be labeled...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Brother Printer prints upside on duplex printing

    This would get my vote and is what I use. Brother's web site can be a little confusing because they list steps doing a manual install that haven't been needed in Ubuntu in years. The installer script...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Is there software to encrypt a pdf document in Ubuntu 16.04?

    I've read 7zip encrypted files are a little harder to crack than zip. Be sure to encrypt the file name as well as the contents. I don't know how true this is, I also don't know if most users can...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Trying to seamlessly dual boot W10 and 18.04

    Turning off Fast Startup is a good idea but be aware it may be re-enabled by a Windows Update. I don't know if there's a way to prevent that or not. Storing data in a partition separate from Windows...
  7. Re: "waiting for unattended-upgr to exit"

    You're not the only one with "unattended upgrade" issues. I'm usually able to get past my problem one of two ways. First is to simply wait a few minutes, second is to open System Monitor and kill any...
  8. Re: Best way to share docs between desktop and laptop?

    I don't use this for anything sensitive but for simple stuff a USB flash drive plugged into my router. I'm not sure about security implications of that setup.

    [other] Re: Gnome install 20.04

    I have an M2 drive in an Asrock desktop. booting is not that different, boots to GRUB and waits 10 seconds or whatever is set. I think programs load somewhat faster but I don't find it that...
  10. Re: Is it possible to use Firewire camera on Ubuntu

    Ubuntu 19.x are not LTS so limited time support. I would not use a non-LTS version for 'real work' if I could avoid it.
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Will I Be Able To Install Linux On This Laptop?

    Dell has a pretty good rep with linux and it's a Latitude so 'business class', probably better quality components. 16 GB RAM and SSD is good. Cheapie notebooks can have uncommon components for which...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Touchpad on ThinkPad T430 not working Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS

    Sorry if I'm stating the obvious but you've looked at the Settings - Devices - Mouse and Touchpad menu to make sure it's enabled? I have a T430 and the touch pad works as expected (though I prefer...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Advice on quiet cooling fans for home build

    I have a somewhat similar setup to what you're proposing, Ryzen 3 2200G. I'm using a few years old AMD video adapter and have no case fans, just the CPU, GPU & PSU fans. I bought a new power supply a...

    Re: no wifi adapter found ubuntu 18.04

    Re fast battery drain, have you installed TLP? Found in the repositories. It seemed to help my Thinkpad's battery life. Here are details, I didn't do any tweaking, I might do better yet but I'm...
  15. Re: Dual-booting Ubuntu and Windows 10 with SSD + HDD

    I don't know if this is still true but in the past, the simplest was to install Windows first then install Ubuntu. GRUB should enable you to boot both. If you install Ubuntu first Windows may replace...

    Re: Why Ubuntu is going down?

    I wonder if they do more with their devices than Google & Facebook. No way no how could I replace a PC with a phone. Replace a 12.5"/27" screen with a 5"-6" screen? Nope, nope and nope.
  17. [lubuntu] Re: 18:04 LTS - teamviewer appears to suck - any alternatives?

    That looks interesting. I could certainly use remote desktop capability over the internet but have been concerned about security. I skimmed over the NoMachine web site but don't see anything about...

    Re: Who else is eagerly waiting for 20.04 ?

    I'm hoping 20.04 reliably supports the Ryzen APUs. I have a 2200G which, if using the onboard graphics will infrequently lock up HARD. Using a few years old AMD PCIe graphics card fixes the problem....
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Chrome/Chromium is unusable on Ubuntu 19.04

    Vivaldi is similar, seems to work well as a second browser. Some online forms don't work well with Firefox; missing fields, fields won't accept keyboard entries etc.

  21. Re: Software Updater: Failed to download repository information

    I use mirrors rather than Ubuntu's server. When I get an error message I'll change mirrors. That usually fixes my problems.
  22. Re: Compatibility list? (spreadsheet etc)

    I've had very good luck with refurbed Thinkpads. My newest is a T430 and no issues that I've found. I do make sure they have Intel wifi, some Thinkpads come with Broadcom wifi. A downside to...
  23. Re: help installing a printer brother MFC-L2700DW

    Ah, that may well be. I don't regard the addition of driverless printing as necessarily an advance for me. The Samsung driver prints one line of gibberish per page and will continue to do so until...
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Driver Installation Help Needed (D-Link DWA-182 Wireless USB Adapter)

    D-Link is still doing that, huh? I haven't really messed with wifi much the last few years but I bought a D-link adapter one time and it worked great right out of the box. Bought a second one a few...
  25. [kubuntu] Re: forgot wireless password and it doesn't exist on my command line list

    I never thought about looking in network-manager for a wifi password, I'll have to remember that. An easy way to edit and remove network connections is with this command: nm-connection-editor.
