  1. Re: not used to touchpad behavior using kernel 5.x

    I don't think it's a matter of the kernel. Elantech touchpads like yours and mine used to use the Synaptics driver and where switched to the libinput driver in a recent update to 18.04. This changed...
  2. [xfce] Re: 18.04 - Nautilus does not open files

    For searching in the current directory in Thunar, just start typing and the cursor will jump to the file starting with what you've typed. For searching a directory and its subdirectories using more...
  3. Re: Where can I learn most used Ubuntu Commands?

    There are various "Cheat Sheets" out there. Ask your favourite search engine for "Linux commands cheat sheet" or "Ubuntu commands cheat sheet". The problem with these is that they are meant mostly as...

    [other] Re: Were is "cd //" documenmted ?

    The 'cd' command is built into the shell. You can either look in the manual for your shell ('man bash' if you're using the default Bourne Again SHell; warning: long and extremely dense manual page)...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Bash tab completion stops working with some commands

    The command line completion is programmable. There are several hundreds of scripts involved if you're counting the specialized scripts in /etc/bash_completion.d/ and...
  7. [all variants] Re: Remote display via ssh or other protocol

    Could barrier be what you're looking for ? It's basically a keyboard and mouse switch in software. The mouse pointer can be moved from one display to the other, the keyboard input goes to whatever...

    [ubuntu] Re: Shrink images to a given size

    Since this is an interactive situation for a single image or a low number of images, 3nd's idea of just using GiMP for it is actually really good.

    I'd do a rectangular selection for the area of...

    [ubuntu] Re: Shrink images to a given size

    JPEG is lossy. The smaller the file, the bigger the loss of detail / image quality. If I run that girl's face image through convert to get a 128kb image the result is far from perfect, especially if...
  10. [xubuntu] Re: Strange gestures for trackpad in Xubuntu 20.04

    Not exactly that problem, but a recent update to my XUbuntu 18.04 switched my trackpad from the (old) synaptic-driver to libinput and I lost the ability to click by tapping on the pad (and the mouse...

    [ubuntu] Re: Shrink images to a given size

    That will work for a few images, few being defined by your personal threshold of boredom. Also you can't just tell it 'make this image 500kb', you have to fiddle with the image quality factor until...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: "groups" CLI gives group or user ?

    Exactly.


    You can't have groups as members of groups. The name of the command -- 'usermod' should give it away: user account modification.
    Perhaps it becomes more clear using long option names:...

    [ubuntu] Re: Shrink images to a given size

    I don't know that program. And I actually can't confirm your concern since on Ubuntu 18.04 Python is installed by default both in version 2.7 (for compatibility with older scripts) and version 3.6...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Looking for a good Music Player for Ubuntu 20.04

    I won't install Guyadeque just to check out a hunch, but if it's anything like other library oriented players I've tried in the past then you have to set a directory as your library in the settings....

    [ubuntu] Re: Shrink images to a given size

    ImageMagick is made up of several tools: animate, compare, composite, conjure, convert, display, identify, import, mogrify, montage and stream. While the 'display' command can be seen as a kind of...

    [ubuntu] Re: Shrink images to a given size

    The ImageMagick tools can try to do this - at least for jpeg and webp. Usually they are a few percentage points off the desired file size. See https://imagemagick.org/script/formats.php for details....
  17. Re: Installing software via USB when there's no internet connection?

    Programs installed from Debian packages - the ones installed through 'apt', usually with an extension of '.deb' - are normally split into multiple packages. This is done to facilitate reuse of...
  18. [xubuntu] Re: Extracting data from recently-used.xbel?

    As I said, I use python rarely. Hadn't even heard of named tuples ... but you're right, it looks cleaner. Actually using a sort function was born out of my desire not to mix separate pieces of data...
  19. [xubuntu] Re: Extracting data from recently-used.xbel?

    Yes, both Umlauts and characters transcribed into entities (& and ' happen to be in directory-names I have in my list of recently used files) work as they should.

    What you've forgotten about...
  20. [xubuntu] Re: Extracting data from recently-used.xbel?

    I rarely use Python, but I know that XML handling is part of the standard library (take a look at xml.dom.minidom). And since the .xbel file is XML using those functions would probably make the code...

    Re: Asus Eee PC 1025C UBUNTU gone wrong

    The key to call up the firmware can vary. On my EEE-PC R101X it was the Delete-key. IIRC F8 was the key to get a boot device selection menu. You should really look for the manual for your device to...
  22. [other] Re: How to install email encryption using chrome

    Chrome is not an email program, it's a web-browser. Using it for email means using a web-application as your actual e-mail program. Whether or not you can use encryption and what kind of encryption...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Looking for a network controlled media player to run on a headless thin client.

    I think the already mentioned mpd is probably closest to what you're looking for. The server plays music on the server's sound hardware and is controlled by clients that tell it what to play. There...
  24. [xubuntu] Re: Extracting data from recently-used.xbel?

    That warning could be the result of zenity actually expecting a file and not the output from a pipe ... It's trying to get some flags from the file descriptor and it seems a pipe doesn't have the...

    A bit shorter without either awk or an additional shell and with a command substitution:
