  1. [SOLVED] Re: Installed on USB disk, but GRUB got installend in internal

    I've created full installs on flash drives and had problems similar to yours. I took the blunt force tack and removed the hard drive. On my laptops (older Thinkpads) that's pretty easy. On newer...

    Re: Ultimaker Cura issue with wayland

    There are some applications like that, unfortunately. Canonical is talking about making Wayland default in 22.04 but X will still be select-able at login. Now X is default but I select Wayland - it...
  3. Re: External USB drive becoming read only.

    You're thinking of M-Disc probably. 25 & 50 GB.capacities and yes they do require a burner rated for them. There are archival DVDs that are supposed to be longer lived than those found at Big Box...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Keyboard Problems with Lenovo ThinkPad L15 running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (64 Bit)

    You bought it at the end of 2020? What's the warranty situation? You might have to remove any Linux and re-install Windows for them to consider any warranty claim. If Windows does the same thing it's...

    Re: The New Apple M1 Chip

    I thought AMD had done some work in the non X86 world but don't have any specifics. Intel moving away from X86 which has made them $billions may be like Kodak moving away from film. The IT world...

    Re: Advice on Wayland?

    There's a reason Linux Torvalds isn't one of Nvidia's biggest fans. I have used Nvidia's closed driver and it fixed a suspend/resume problem I had but I think caused a different issue or two, really...

    Re: Advice on Wayland?

    If your Nvidia card is discreet you could always replace it with an AMD video card. I've bought AMD video cards off Ebay for $20 -$30 - they're pulls, typically Dell or HP. They seem to work fine on...
  9. Re: Ubuntu unusable due to too small a partition

    I would be surprised and disappointed by a soldered hard drive in the PC world. What I expect will become common is M2 SATA or more likely NvME. An M2 drive is approximately the size of two sticks of...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can scnaner work on ubuntu 21.04 ???

    I don't know about essential but I've certainly had better luck setting static I.P. addresses on hardware. Before I did this I'd get "printer not found" or similar error messages too frequently.

    I use a little app found in the repositories, htop. It's sort of a graphics top command but i find it easier to understand. It also shows how many processor cores you have and how busy they are.

    Re: Migrating from Intel CPU to AMD one

    If you haven't done so, I'd install the latest BIOS update, or perhaps the 2nd to newest in case there are flaws lurking in the newest BIOS version. Doing so fixed a couple niggles on my 2nd gen...
  23. Re: New PC build but Linux will not boot correctly

    I agree with the others, upgrade the BIOS unless it's pretty recent. I generally don't load the latest unless it's been out for a while, I flash 1 version old. If there are problems with that one,...
