  1. [SOLVED] Re: Problems trying to install Brave browser - GPG key issues

    It's your call.

    FWIW, I have had no problems installing this package in about a dozen computers by following nothing more than the steps listed in the Brave site. Nor, I suspect, did thousands of...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Problems trying to install Brave browser - GPG key issues

    Let's try a different approach. Instead of installing the key into /etc, let's install it into /usr

    sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Problems trying to install Brave browser - GPG key issues

    You don't actually need apt-transport-https. The newest versions of apt have https transport built into it. Focal certainly does. No harm in installing it though.
    The point of this exercise is that...
  4. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    Perhaps I misunderstood Paddy's linked report, but I was going by this: https://www.howtogeek.com/768188/windows-11-will-soon-block-all-default-browser-workarounds/
  5. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    Well, you will no longer have to put up with the pop‑ups once MS hardwires Edge into W11 as the default. No more stress having to deal with absurd concepts like "choice".
  6. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    I thought you were pulling my leg. Then you post an actual link.

    If you read the contents of the link, the proposal further involves the toilet tracking its "patients" by taking pictures of our...
  7. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    I will probably regret asking this but, how on earth can a toilet be made "smart"
    …and what would be the point?
  8. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    Well, Paddy:

    You're dealing with a cussed optimist here. O:) I continue to harbour delusional fantasies that people are capable of waking up, seeing their freedoms circling the drain, and doing...
  9. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    This was my somewhat lame follow-up to my earlier "resistance is futile" pop culture reference. That phrase comes out of Star Trek and is the standard warning issued to their victims by the Borg...

    Re: VLC / SMPlayer - YouTube Problems

    FWIW, SMPlayer is also available as a snap. The latest snap will always be more current than the feature‑frozen app that is in the repos.
  11. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    "Resistance is futile?" ;)

    I dislike being a drone, and I think such a future far from inevitable. The consequences if it were are too awful to live with.

    I realize that warnings from a nobody...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: No boot on Ubuntu 20.04.3 AMD RX 6700 XT

    I'm afraid I'm out of my depth with OpenCL. I recall this being an option in the AMD version of amdgpu-pro, but since I don't need it, I've never explored it. What I do know is that my more pristine...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: No boot on Ubuntu 20.04.3 AMD RX 6700 XT

    I had a similar problem with my video card, it too being an AMD RX 6700 XT. The problem is that this video card is too brand spanking new and bleeding edge. The drivers included in the 20.04 kernel...
  14. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    You will have to throw me in the same boat.

    I am more than old enough to remember when MS happily used its market dominance to engage in predatory practices of such malevolence that even their...
  15. Re: Now that MS Edge (stable) is available on Linux, will you use it?

    Since my biggest beefs with the whole IT ecosystem are the related issues of privacy, anonymity, data proprietorship and tracking, I just don't trust MS or Google at all to install their browsers....
  16. [kubuntu] Re: Multiple monitors and window positions.

    I've run across this tool in other threads, but have never had occasion to try it. Do you know if it works with Wayland, or is it only usable on X11?
  17. [kubuntu] Re: Multiple monitors and window positions.

    I have one computer with a dual monitor setup and it too shifts logon dialogue boxes with each boot. I've found that the reason for this is mouse placement. The logon dialogue box occupies whichever...

    Re: VLC / SMPlayer - YouTube Problems

    YouTube is constantly monkeying around with their algorithms trying to break the third party download collective. Here is an earlier thread dealing with the same issue:...
  19. Re: I'm having problems with internet speed on all Ubuntu Based Distros

    It is fine to post your results of the WIFI script in public. Sensitive identification info is either masked or not gathered to start with. However, please post results either as attachment...
  20. Re: My dad refuses to upgrade his 16.04 laptop

    There are many ways to attack Linux. Services is a big one, but not the only one. The most severe threats are zero‑day flaws in structural components. Thankfully, they are rare. However, not rare...
  21. Re: My dad refuses to upgrade his 16.04 laptop

    As an extension of QIII's comments:

    The main reason that Linux experiences less malware has little to do with its inherent robustness as an OS; it has far more to do with the fact that Linux users...

    Re: Pinephone Pro introduced

    As already noted, you don't have to spring for a Pinephone to detoxify. It can be done on a regular Android phone. It's been years since I've worked with an iPhone, so can't comment there.

    I find...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Packaged Steam for 20.04 LTS Binary Mismatch

    Actually, you ask a good question and have commendable security savvy. It would never have occurred to me to compare binaries.

    For the vast majority of Ubuntu users, the default practice is to...
  24. Re: What is the lightest .txt editor (what is a clone of windows notepad)

    Sometimes, we (I hazard the presumption of including myself among the Linux acolytes) are so comfortable around the command line that we forget how uncomfortable it makes newbies feel. While what you...
  25. Re: Any Linux distributions targeting mobile laptop computing in 2021?

    No one can make Linux as organic as Apple. The reason for this is obvious: Apple's control of both the HW and OS is tyrannical. So tyrannical that these two elements, which are two distinct elements...
