  1. [ubuntu] Re: Unable to instal Ubuntu on WIndows 7 (Dual Boot)

    Having nothing sensitive or valuable on that computer isn't enough to stop worrying about hackers on Windows 7 (or any other system). They may be interested in other things than stealing your files...

    [ubuntu] Re: 3D graphics glitch

    Pay attention to the packages that get installed and removed. It's not recommended to run old kernels. This may get fixed in a later kernel. It may help if you report a bug:...

    [ubuntu] Re: 3D graphics glitch

    Weak graphics or not, this kind of artefact shouldn't happen, in particular if it worked until last week.

    I got two kernel upgrades last week on 20.10 and assume there were some on 20.04 too....
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Update process interrupted by my kid, now can't start

    Lenovo support tells me that the S205 has an AMD Brazos C30, C50, E240 or E350 CPU, which is 64 bit. It isn't exactly a powerful processor, not even by 2011 standards (when it was released), but it...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Package dependencies cannot be resolved

    What does
    apt-cache policy grub-efi-amd64-signedtell you?

    2.04-1ubuntu35.6 is the correct version for grub2-common on 20.10, so it looks like something strange is going on with your...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Update process interrupted by my kid, now can't start

    Re: Cant login to ubuntu anymore

    Another possibility is that the permissions on your home directory on some files in it are messed up. When your GUI session cannot write to the files it needs, it may crash at once, sending you back...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Can't run apt install due to unmet dependencies

    The complete output of
    LANG=C sudo apt install -fmay help.

    The LANG=C part will switch translations off, changing all output to English. Although, as it's all standard messages, I can typically...

    Re: How do you install Google Earth

    There used to be a problem that the 64 bit GE didn't work on 64 bit Ubuntu, so you had to install the 32 bit version. That's years ago, but instructions from that time may still be found on the web....

  16. Re: Which Ubuntu version should be fine with this device's specifications?

    20.04, that's the current LTS version. Unless you really want the latest interim release (20.10; 21.04 will be released this month), but that's not really recommended for new users. There's no point...

    When you install Google Chrome from the .deb, it's supposed to put a software source for upgrades in /etc/apt/sources.list.d. Apt will then upgrade Google Chrome along with all other software it...

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade Ubuntu 10.04 to 12.04

    I hope this old 10.04 server isn't actually exchanging mail with the untrusted web, right? Because 10.04 server edition has been unsupported for 6 years. 12.04 for 4 years. So indeed, why bother? Get...
  22. Re: Tools to find damaged files (data corruption)?
