  1. Re: What is the lightest .txt editor (what is a clone of windows notepad)

    More than fair comment. I overemphasized crash resistance at the expense of other things.

    I have had my GUI crash on me. Not indiscriminately, but it did happen regularly when I was playing one...
  2. Re: What is the lightest .txt editor (what is a clone of windows notepad)

    Others have answered you directly and given you some alternatives. I have nothing to add to those good suggestions. But let me try instead to address the context behind your question.

    It isn't mentioning youtube-dl that offends forum policy. It is the posting of any workarounds that skirt YouTube's Terms of Service. We are not lawyers on this forum and, whether we agree or...
  4. Re: How is ZFS coming in Ubuntu's development of it?

    Thank you for this timely and very relevant warning. I had actually considered upgrading one of my primary partitions to Impish because it solves the issue of support for my spanking new video card....
  5. Re: How is ZFS coming in Ubuntu's development of it?

    I'm glad that you are forging the path ahead for us (and I greatly appreciate it!). Your description of the problem is precisely why I disable this "feature": it was more painful than the "problem"...

    Re: Pinephone Pro introduced

    A couple of years ago, I installed an F-Droid app called ClassyShark3xodus. It's a tracker scanner—it scans the apps on your phone and reports back on how many trackers the app contains. To say that...

    Incidentally, I could be wrong but, to my knowledge, mpv does not use youtube-dl, so there is no need to bring it into the discussion.

    Please note that this thread is dangerously skirting the Forum's prohibition against rendering aid with youtube-dl.

    Discussion is acceptable. Links to sites or outright instructions are not.

    The problem isn't isolated to mpv. I've been getting the same problem on a number of… ahem… alternate viewing platforms.

    I suspect that Google has done something to its youtube data streams to...

    [SOLVED] Re: i3 no windows, no menu

    i3 is not broken. As a Window Manager, it actually sits at a more foundational level in your GUI stack and therefore does not come with the eye candy that makes up a typical Desktop Environment....

    Please appreciate that when you bork an install by changing the permissions on the entire partition containing the OS, the damage done is not trivial. Therefore, the solution will not be trivial...
  13. Re: How is ZFS coming in Ubuntu's development of it?

    This was the "unwanted fallout" I mentioned. Glad you posted in detail. It may be relevant to the OP after all.

    You can now choose to have the Ubuntu desktop install process automatically...
  14. Re: How is ZFS coming in Ubuntu's development of it?

    This Alpine option is AWESOME!

    I'm constantly learning cool stuff from you.


    But, if memory serves, not on Focal. Granted, my memory is like a sieve these days, but I recall that it was now a...
  15. Re: How is ZFS coming in Ubuntu's development of it?

    Not sure that I understand the OP's question.

    ZFS is baked into the kernel now. To my knowledge, it's been that way since at least Bionic. To run LXD properly, one should set up at least a ZFS...

  17. Re: Ubuntu 21.04 Thunderbird minimized but when i click on the icon it wont come back

    You are far more resourceful than you let on. ;)

    Congrats on your successful research. I'm afraid I can't really help much with your specific issue. Note that I am running Focal and not 21.04, so...
  18. Re: Ubuntu 21.04 Thunderbird minimized but when i click on the icon it wont come back

    Are you running Ubuntu and not one of its flavours? If vanilla Ubuntu, a sucession of <Alt> <Tab>s should cycle you through each of the apps you have up and running on your desktop. This will...
  19. Re: Ubuntu 21.04 Thunderbird minimized but when i click on the icon it wont come back

    I have a few apps that behave in similar fashion on Focal (20.04). Have you tried cycling through your apps with <Alt> <Tab>?

    BTW, it is rarely necessary to go all the way to a reboot. You can...

    Re: SSL Security Errors Everywhere

    In fact, 20.04 is less "buggy" than 21.04. This is true of all LTS releases in general. 20.04 is an LTS release and has had a year and a half to iron out most of its bugs.

    You probably had a...
  21. Re: My ISP says I have 350,000 inodes and I can't find them

    What I meant by "paid help" is paid help from your ISP. My ISP has an option wherein I can get superior tech support by paying a per‑incidence charge.True enough. When it comes to computing,...
  22. Re: My ISP says I have 350,000 inodes and I can't find them

    Being unfamiliar with OpenCart, this is new (but useful) info. I assume this info is from your ISP. Then, they should also be able to tell you the underlying structure of your website:

  23. Re: My ISP says I have 350,000 inodes and I can't find them

    inodes are not a "problem". They are simply the OS's way of keeping track of all your files and directories. Linux uses a ginourmous number of inodes. Similar to ml9104, my OS uses close to a...
