  1. [ubuntu] Re: I can't format texts in an email editor or a browser address bar. They disappear

    It sounds like something I have never encountered.

    Have you installed the 'restricted extras'? That package brings among other things a set of fonts, that may be necessary to render the formatting...
  2. Re: Ubuntu Rufus Sandisk Windows 10 dual install failed :(

    I think it will work according to the advice by CelticWarrior.

    There is another alternative too. In Rufus, right when you have selected all the settings and intend to start the action, and press...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: How to encrypt and password protect a directory?

    This link: KeePass Password Safe should be useful for general information.

    More specifically for Ubuntu, I think KeePassXC is what you'd want. You can download it or install it from the repository...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: How to encrypt and password protect a directory?

    Is this for saving passwords (only) or for saving various data files?

    I'm asking because there are special solutions for saving passwords (that are more convenient than a general solution).

    Re: Is it my hard disk?

    There may be some particular physical locations of the drive that are bad, and you were reading from good locations. Or maybe the problems will show up when writing, and the big backup was a reading...

    Re: Is it my hard disk?

    I think that your HDD is demaged beyond repair. I'm glad that you managed to get a fresh backup before it was too late.

    You need a new drive.

    If the backup is a disk image: Get a drive with at...

  9. [ubuntu] Re: How to install windows from ubuntu without an external drive

    "Everything is possible" but sometimes very difficult.

    The easy solution is to get a USB pendrive (size >= 8 GB) and make a Windows installer in it. It does not work to clone from a Windows 10 iso...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Can't boot Ubuntu 18.04 from external hard drive.

    No I misunderstood. The partition table on one disk does not affect the other disks.

    Yes, and you do this from Linux.

    Do this from Linux, maybe easiest when running Ubuntu live from a USB...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Can't boot Ubuntu 18.04 from external hard drive.

    Windows dynamic partitions do not work with Linux.

    - If you have a lot of unique data on this disk, it is better to get a new drive for Ubuntu, and not let Windows do any partitioning. An SSD is a...

    Re: D-Ban on usb won't boot

    - Which version of DBAN?
    - What drive are you trying to wipe?
    - How is that drive connected (SATA, USB ...)?

    Re: Create bootable iso image

    I tested with the new default 'usb-pack-efi' of mkusb version 12.6.0 (now at ppa:mkusb/unstable).

    Sorry, I did not test with mkusb version 12.5.8 from the stable PPA, ppa:mkusb/ppa. I tested now,...

    @C.S.Cameron,

    Yes it is a Groovy thread, and until a couple of days ago, this new template:

    Re: Create bootable iso image

    I downloaded and tested the current 'user edition' neon-user-20200910-0945.iso

    and used mkusb (mkusb-dus) to create a persistent live drive.

    Since this is not a standard Ubuntu system, I tried...
  17. [all variants] Re: How to get further with the boot problem of groovy - looking for workarounds

    I have seen those complaints at boot, but it was still possible to continue booting. Did you try to continue, for example by pressing the Enter key (or maybe some other key, that is suggested)?

    @C.S.Cameron,

    I did some more testing with mkusb_grub-boot-template-for-uefi-n-bios_fat32_4GB_use-in-wins_2020-09-07.img.xz.

    Before I extracted/cloned from it to a USB drive with dus in Ubuntu....

    @C.S.Cameron,

    Thanks for testing :-)

    Please show more details about the failure in UEFI mode. How far did the boot reach and how did it fail? I would like to reproduce the failure mode of your...

  21. Re: Ubuntu 20 showing filesystem check hence taking too long to boot

    If there is a file system check at every boot of an installed system, something is wrong with the file system. Please fix it and check what might cause the damage.

    It is different with a live or...
